Stayed for 1/2 term week in the main block facing pool. Room was very clean but a little tired, had good view along coast, but prone to music til 1am every night from the pool bar. Food was good all week, with lots of choice. We generally ate 90 mins after restaurant opened (ie second sitting) and only once was a dish not available. Local veg dishes were the best. No fruit juices. All inclusive drinks are poor. Outdoor pools were getting a little cool by end of Oct, but heated indoor pool in the Imperial was OK. Very convenient for the bus stop opposite the main entrance, with buses east & west every 15 mins. HyperMarket also by main entrance for the things you forgot to remember. Walk out from the back of the hotel complex and there is a very enjoyable (and flat) walk around the 3 villages if you want to see something more authentic than the main drag along the coast road. The Lycnostatis Rural Museum was v intersting, esp Wednesday @ 11am when they do a wine pressing and dancing. Only 5 mins walk from the main entrance - bear right and its on the coast. Architectural Museum in Heraklion was superb. Collapse

There are lots of reviews about this hotel so I’ll try and break my down: Room: our room was a bit old fashioned and tired looking but clean when we arrived and kept clean and tidy on a daily basis. There was a fridge where you could put your bottled water but none was supplied. There is no kettle for making a hot drink. There is some hand wash but no other toiletries. Towels were clean but you have to hire beach towels for €1 per day €10 deposit. Safe available but has to be hired €20 deposit €2 per day for the key. No iron but one can be hired at the front desk no surprise here €10 deposit, Staff: saw a few reviews saying how friendly staff were I found them polite but not friendly. Food; I’ve seen lot of other reviews that moan about the food but it is what you expect in an all inclusive resort of this sort in Europe. Everyday there was a wide choice of different hot and cold food, wide range of deserts,down side is it is virtually the same day after day. There are two snack bars one doing toasties and chips near the large pool the one near the children’s pool offers a greater choice at lunch time. There is an Italian evening you can book into once during your stay. Not sure why it’s not a Greek evening. We got dressed up thinking this was going to be something special when in-fact it took place in the poolside snack bar only difference to normal meals was that someone brought you the first drink. Food much the same just help yourself. Gave us a laugh anyway. But I wouldn’t bother unless you like lots of pizza. Drinks; usuall local beers, wines and spirits limited choice of cocktails included, all served in plastic cups when in any outside area day and night but you can have a glass when drinking indoors. Soft drinks available all the time through drinks dispensers not sure what exactly is in these so called the juice in the morning the thing that pretends to be orange juice.’! Tea coffee hot choc again all through dispensing machines can be found behind the bar when restaurants are closed bit tasteless and not very hot glad to get home to a nice cup of tea in a proper cup! . Animation team: we didn’t really join in with the on site activities but the children appeared to be enjoying the evening entertainment and give the team there due even being close to the end of the season they were out there everyday trying to encourage people to join in with the activities. Facilities: everything is shared with the Imperial Belvedere as they are virtually joined together. The top pool is lovely great for swimming and paddling about. Large pool more for serious swimmers. Several children’s pool with mini slides. All clean and tidy. Also indoor pool I think a sauna as well but didn’t use theses so can’t comment. Loads of sun beds all over the site many surrounding the pools but others in places for people who just want to soak up the rays. Children’s play areas for under 5s when they’re bored of the pool. outdoor table tennis tables and mini golf I think. There are also a couple of shops, pharmacy, hair and nail saloon one of those places where the fish nibble your feet, somewhere kids can hire a tail to become a mermaid and another places that can turn your image into something that looks like a subeteo character! Location; The hotel is built into the hillside if you have any mobility problems or have small children in pushchairs you really neeed to consider if this is the right location for you as there is a lot of up and down steps, slopes etc. you could always stay on your sun bed for your whole holiday but a short walk down the hill and you are in the town with a wide range of shops bars restaurants for you to spend your holiday money on. A short walk out of the back of the hotel and you can start a gentle climb to three lovely villages where you can find some nicer shops and taverners. If you want to go further then hop on a local bus,we went to Malia a 10 min bus ride away for only a couple of €. When we arrived Malia had closed for the season looking around and the streets of night clubs and bars this was probably a good thing. Best bit was the lovely beaches with crashing waves great for body boarding. We also went to Knossos unless you are really interested in looking at some old ruins I wouldn’t bother certainly not worth the €15 each entrance fee in and out in 10mins. Local bus from the airport to the hotel is €3.30 each get off at stop 24 for the hotel,save money on transfers. Bus are clean air conditioned, conductors on board to help you out, they run on a regular basis,time tables are easy to find at each stop. Only difference is if you get on at Heraklion bus station you need to get your ticket before getting on the bus from a very rude person in the station. So would I stay there again,not at the Royal Belvedere I’d stay at the more modern Imperial belvedere. Wouldn’t stay as a couple either but would be a good place to take the grandchildren. If I went to Hersinossis again I would probably stay in a self catering place in one of the villages and eat at the taverners would probably work out about the same price. One of the worst things is the donkeys, goats, chickens, birds and tortoise all kept in extremely small cages on the path down from the hotel to the town. Why they are even there I have no idea but somebody needs to set these animals free. Collapse

Hotel should be five star not four. The entertainment team never stopped working from morning till night. No problem with food. Hotel is spotless. All the staff are so helpful. The six swimming pools were cleaned every morning.

Spent a week there, no complaints at all. The complex is spotless, and plenty of choice in the restaurant. The staff are very helpful and polite, but there is a steep hill and they provide transport four times a day

Although the staff were lovely some things I do have to say. The water can only be got in a plastic cup, no bottles unless you want to buy them. You can't get a drink in the middle of the night as there is no where to get one. No kettles in the room.… See more
Although the staff were lovely some things I do have to say. The water can only be got in a plastic cup, no bottles unless you want to buy them. You can't get a drink in the middle of the night as there is no where to get one. No kettles in the room. There are fridges in the room but nothing in them. The entertainment was great for the kids but my daughter is epileptic and they used flashing lights and lots of them so she couldn't watch many but that's not their fault. The food was good and always a good choice. The towels had to stay in the room, if you want one for the pool you either rent one or buy one from the shop just outside the resort. We had loads of steps to walk up every day to get to dining room. Collapse
