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

We (me my wife, daughter son-in-law and 3 grandkids 11, 6, and 4) visited this big, big, hotel for a last chance of sun, and a break for the kids and we knew it was right at the close of the season, so some things may not be there. We arrived after 9pm and luckily for us we were the only guests checking in, checking no problem and then we were taken to our room by car, I said it was a big hotel. The driver, Marlon was over the moon as my 11yr old grandson knew lots about Greek mythology and wanted to talk to him about it In fact, its 2 hotels together, the Imperial Belvedere and the Royal Belvedere. Having some 670 rooms and bungalows with numerous bars and restaurants, set on the side of a hill with a 10minute walk to the main strip It has 6 outdoor pools and a heated indoor pool (only open at start and end of the season). The pools vary in size and depth from an Olympic size pool to kid’s pools. Rooms are well maintained and vary in size for what you want, having fridge, AC, TV and safe. As we stayed at the very end of the season the rooms were tired. They had a double bed and a bed settee which could sleep two others, this makes the room cramped, but you only stay in the rooms for sleeping and getting changed, the AC works so did the fridge, what more could you ask for. Restaurants are buffet style and there is plenty to choose from, there are pool side restaurants which serve food virtually all day from 10am to 7pm the beer is on tap in the restaurants and pool bar so its help yourself. Desserts are numerous and varied. There are daily activities and kid clubs to help, and night time entertainment, this when we went was limited but there were only 3 play makers there as it was closing on the 31st of October, so no complaints. Activities team worked long hours but were always cheerful. If you don’t want to drink outside at the show there are numerous bars to try. As it’s on a hill side there are numerous steps, there are lifts but you still have to walk up a few inclines. If you have limited mobility, ask before travelling for a room near the centre of the hotel. This is a great place for the kids, but we would try it when it was a bit warmer only 20 to 24°C and a lot cooler at night. Would we go back yes. Collapse

We stayed here at the beginning of October. The complex itself was very good and the restaurant was also good. Great choice of food. Snack bar was super too and the children loved this. Staff in snack bar and restaurant worked really hard and were very polite as where the maids. We were really disappointed in the family room which was extremely small for 5 people and very dated and worn. By day 2 we realised the toilet was leaking badly and reported this to reception. We had to report this 3 days running out of a 7 day holiday, I had slipped and fallen due to large pools of smelly water on the bathroom floor. Reception staff were far from helpful and tried to say water was from the shower. The shower had not been used in 12 hours. Eventually after getting extremely frustrated we asked for a room swap which the hotel organised. The next family room was much more acceptable in size but still dated and like previous room very dusty, not clean as you would expect and still not 4 star We would question whether it was even 3 star. At least the toilet did not leak! We did complain and ask to see the manager but we could not as reception did not know where he was and had no way of contacting him! Some hours later we met the assistant manager who spoke to us in reception area with no privacy and could not maintain eye contact with us. It was a waste of time speaking to him. We spoke to our rep who was not impressed with our service and she spoke to the assistant manager. He wrote us a letter telling us it had been looked at each day. At no point did he apologise for the state of the room or for the fact that we had to move room neither did he show any concern that I had fallen. He did admit he would not let his family use the room in that condition! Not at all impressed and would not recommend due to poor service. If they had listened and sorted the toilet it would have been different. Collapse

This hotel was lovely but not 4 star as rated. The rooms were a little dated but clean. The food was good especially the pizza at lunch time. There are a lot of steps at this hotel so may not be suitable for guests with mobility problems. I found this hotel to have noise issues in the corridors at night... this is the first hotel that I have been to that I have been disturbed during the night by other guests but I suppose this is not the hotels fault but other inconsiderate guests. I would definitely say that the very best feature of this hotel is the entertainment team.... they are first class and the hotel should aim to keep them for the next season. The shows were the best I have seen in a hotel. Well done to the team for all their hard work! Collapse
