This was my third time in Crete, always stayed in different hotels, we arrived at gone 1am due to taking the late flight out and reception were extremely helpful and told us everything we needed to know and told us where the food was as there were snacks out for late arrivals. We headed up to our room, 4th floor opposite the lifts, lovely sea view but a view of a roof below us which was ugly. Always a large selection of food, was disappointed cocktails were not included in the all inclusive because TBH they weren't that great value anyway. Always could get sunbeds and spent a few days at the imperial belvedere hotels pool because we preferred it and it was quiet. We attended the spa and had a couples massage but I found the guy was a bit rough and caused me a bit of pain, entertainment and activities everyday were great! We loved matteo as he wouldcome round every morning to chat to us. The nightlife in hersonissos is really good, wasn't too tacky and not too crowded but we went early October, cocktails always 241 and always got a free shot. Downside of this hotel is we could hear everything going on outside our room, some people would sit on the sofas outside at night and be really loud! I really do miss the pancakes in reception after dinner everyday! They made my holiday, I would return if I came back to Crete but I would probably stay in the imperial as it's a bit quieter there.

Spent a good time but wouldnt go back

I dont know where to begin, so just random facts: - Rooms with ocean view can mean you can look directly at a roof, but its true, the direction of the ocean :D First we also had a not good room but we went to the reception and from next morning we got a new one. So I suggest if you dont like your room go and try to ask for a new one. If you have luck and there is place you can change. But first time they give you always the worst one... - The pools are far too deep (mostly around 2 m and there is also 4 m!) and veeery cold (in October was colder than the sea!). So if you are not a kid (because they have own pools), but not too tall and cant really swim, you will have a hard time if you want to use the pools. - They dont make water games in the pool. - The beds are as confortable as stones. Way too hard. - Creepy and annoying music at the meals. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, every day 3X the same. - In the reastaurant theoritically the rule is to wear decent clothes, long trousers, no swimsuit etc. Well they dont really care about this and let everyone in, even with beach towels on the back! - With the wifi you can forget to watch videos. - There is a "doctor" service in the hotel. They just forget to write out that she doesn't do or answer to anything just would send you to the medical center where you can pay 80 Euros !! for a single visit. they havent even done anything, its just for the visit! - The are 2 types of rooms: 1. completely new, modern or 2. oldschool and furnitures from the last century. The first type I just saw in the advertisements and once accidentally... Flatscreen TV is totally random. Our room had an old TV. - In the hotel shop you cant buy just stamps, just if you buy also the postcards there. Bravo for the marketing and customer friendliness... - The receptionist are not kind. Sometimes rather rude, doesnt matter if you have problem or you just want to ask something (I dont mean the guys in the light blue shirts, they are nice). Im sure they are all professionals but sometimes kindness means much more... - The cleaning ladies and the kitchen staff are mostly very nice and polite, do their jobs well. There is room cleaning every day. - The animator team is truly awesome. Especially Mioara, Mattia and Tatjana. Always happy, always full of energy. The others looked like often bored, but they are never! - The hotel should seperate the smokers from non smokers, especially at the pool bar where the evening program takes place near the stage. This was one of the most disturbing things: we couldnt enjoy one night from the two weeks without having smokers around. No matter what table you choose its sure you cant have fresh air just cigarettes everywhere. Nobody cares there are lots of children! - The food quality was extremely various. Usually the dinner was super, but the breakfast is literally every day the same and not from the best quality. Sometimes you can be surprised about the food becase you see it and expect to be salty, but its sweet. Or you expect sweet and its salty! Very weird but I hope at least the greeks understand this :D - The cakes are delicious! - From a 4* hotel I would expect shampoo and shower gel in the bathroom. I got it almost everywhere even in hostels... - They have the world's most thin toilet paper, you can see through it. - The safe is unrealistically expensive. - The buns are at the same time dry and soft. Its a new super talent I think. - Icecream is very average. I think all over the island is nothing special about it. But ofc they tell everywhere "here is the best iceream" :D - The snack bar is a joke. The pizza is horrible (if you have luck and actually can find). Fries are average, toast sandwich is very basic. And to call the main pool snack bar an "italian restaurant" after 19:00, its even better joke! We spent almost a week for searching the famous italian restaurant, where you can eat once free (bit strictly just with reservation!). Well, ladies and gentlemen, its the tiny snack bar with self service! :DDDD At least the stone baked pizza is very good there in the evening! - I want to highlight the staff of the snack bar near the children's pool. If you ever saw bored and unfriendly personal, then they will top it Im sure :D - The spa staff was annoying. They came to us every day near the pool with the same speech and didnt remember us :D - The all inclusive drinks have poor quality. Why there is no simple natural fruit saft, without bubbles? But you can have fresh orange juice for 2 euros, haha. - The parking area of the hotel is ridiculous. For that amount of guests is very small and very few places. - All the plus facilities 90% you can use just when thats the program with the animation team. And you can play table tennis, but good luck, because there is ONE table for the few hundread guests, which is always taken. - The evening programs are also variously enjoyable. The comedy show of the animation team is priceless! There is continously karaoke show, which I dont know why they advertise this as talent show? Its literally karaoke (usually with always the same people singing but its not the fault of the hotel). They also have Mrs Belvedere or Mr Belvedere show, which is always funny but after a time you will know it. There was once a magician show with Greece's no.1 magician. What are the worst like then? :D It was horrible, please dont do it again. It was boring and so amateur... - The hotel is for sure very family-friendly. There are many facilities for children. - You cant move the umbrellas near the pools! So you have to always relocate your place.. - The gym is very basic. Dont get me wrong, we spent a very nice holiday here, I just wanted to share my honest opinion and write constructive critics :) Collapse
Had a great time would definitely return !

No complaints whatsoever. The animation team were brilliant and really made our holiday. Food was as good as expected but not outstanding ! The complex as a whole was spotless and well maintained ! Pools were great and plenty of space etc !

We visited the royal belvedere end July 2016 we stayed for two weeks ..we arrived quite late at night check in was quite straight forward we were given our keys and went to room we stayed in the main hotel we supper waiting in the main restaurant ..after supper we went for a wonder to see what was about ..in the morning breakfast was served from 7.30 couldn't fault it one bit always fresh food and never struggled to find s place to sit like other all inclusive hotels.. We had 7 pools to choose from bearing in mind they are salt water pools ,so be careful most of our days we sat around the children's pool due to having a 6year old daughter ..you need to be up quite early to out ya towels out otherwise you won't have any bed ...lunch time you could either sit in the main restaurant or eat by the pool which offered snacks all day ...cheese toasties were fantastic..and the puddings were to die for ..children could help themselves to ice cream pretty much all day.. The hotel has a sister hotel next door which you can also use all the facilities there too... Children's club was brilliant activities in the morning and swimming in the afternoon our daughter loved to go there ..she loved the animation team who did it viktoria and Tatiana .. The animation team was absolutely brilliant they got children involved with the shows my daughter starred in the lion king show which she enjoyed the entertainment was different every night when we were there they work so hard ..and it's nice to be able to talk with them all once they have finished work...because they work a lot of hours.. When walking out of the complex you will see the animals a donkey which had a poorly leg when we were there but they soon out a shield over his leg..chickens ..sheep..tortoises ..and a drinks machine .. Food at the hotel I can honestly say it was the best by far nothing was repetitive like you get else where ..there were so many dishes to choose from we were spoilt for choice Only have one fault with the hotel which was the main stage there isn't enough seating area for everyone to see the shows..some nights we had to sit on sun beds ..in the end we started to have dinner earlier and sit by the stage at 8pm to get the best seat..any later you might as well forget it because your be standing ... Hotel was spotless our room was huge double bed and to sofa beds..bathroom was ok but we had a flood coming up the drain from the bath soon sorted it out ourselves ..are room was very quiet we were facing the mountains The hotel is a bit out the way from the main town one day we will return back that's if the same animation team was there Collapse

we were very lucky to get one of the new rooms, i know this for sure because we stayed in an older one for our first night(still large still two bedroomed ) and there's no comparison the new one's are just beautiful i would put them as one of the best ive stayed in we had two bedrooms a bathroom and an ensuite for the three of us. Brilliant all hotels should have these instead of the extra shoved in bed we often get in a room thats clearly only big enough for two ! The food was fine,i know there are complaints about the food but to be honest when you have adults queing up for childrens chicken nuggets I think their tastes obviously differ to mine , drinks ok except the red wine, I dont get this because Greek wine is great luckily the shop sold some nice bottles Phew !!! the pool area just not enough sunbeds but lovely big pools and great snack bars but we did go in July ! Days out the water park was fantastic and the Hotel made us a packed lunch to take with us lovely touch thank you ! spent a few days at Stalis beach and had some lovely lunches there we took a Taxi but I think theres a bus too . The only negative comment I have is the very rude and arrogant Barman at the top pool who spoils it for all the other lovely Bar Staff . Collapse
