It’s the pool scene that really gets the vote here. That and the first-rate views.
Rooms that come with a sea or mountain view really make the most of this hotel’s hilltop spot. And as this place shares ground space with the Royal Belvedere, you get a fantastic pool scene, too.
It’s a 10-minute walk to the local beach and bars. The free shuttle bus will scoot you there much quicker. And a short walk up the hill there are traditional Greek villages.

Great value for money , August 11th.
Just returned and got to say we had a great stay. The hotel is combined with the Royal Belvedere but not a problem as they both share the same area. On arrival we were helped to our Family Room by a member of staff rather than just pointed in the general direction , that makes a nice change, room spacious and seperated into 2 areas so a little privacy from kids if needed :) Now we went at peak time but getting a sunbed at 8.30 not really a problem and no extra charges for anything unless you want to take hotel towels down instead of your own. Free wifi that just about reached majority of hotel . Look the food was good , yes sometimes they were struggling to keep up but you rarely had to wait more than a minute for a certain dish to be restocked !! 4 fantastic pools over 3 levels with snacks , drink and shops by all the areas. Short walk down hill from hotel ( harder going up ) brought you to the main road and oppisite was the Star Beach Village Resort. Brilliant mini resort situated up from the beach but easy access to various beaches while walking along the front, also lots of kids pools , bars etc along the way. Certain parts are catered for the ' younger crowd' but during the day all in bed so full of families anyway ! Now if you want to sample a bit of ' old Greece' turn right out of reception and follow the quiet back road for about 15 mins and you will come across a lovely selection of bars , Taverners that are a world away from the main run of Hersonissos. Only negative point is the entertainment on a night.Mini disco 8.30 / 9.30 then its over to the Animation team that try thier best but gets boring after a few days. All in all you get what you pay for , lots of pools , places to go and explore. Give the water park a go. 20mins by coach , book tickets and transfer through the hotel you'll have a fantastic time and no hidden extras to pay for once you get in. Just think you will always get people who moan at anything these days but how can you with the two fellas who work the top poolside bar , Niko and his colleague on a night coped with the rush ... just ;)More

Not a 4 star and definitely not worth the money
Definitely Won't go back to this hotel. Plenty of Pools which were good unfortunately no life guards and some of them are very deep. The staff very rarely smiled and are very few and far between. The restaurant is far to small and the kitchen staff could not keep up with the demand, constantly having to queue to get in for evening meal, no plates, waiting for tables to be cleared, waiting for food to be brought out. Food is very samey, not really good if your a fussy eater, plenty of rabbit and pork! No fresh orange unless you pay for it. Although all inclusive had to eat out a few times to get a good meal. Not enough bar staff at top bar, not bad in the evening at the Apollo bar though that was a bit better. Evening entertainment awful, comedy night particularly dreadful, why the think it's fun it shoot someone in the head with a pretend gun, and slash someone's throat with a plastic knife is beyond me. Especially with children watching. Rooms are quite basic, air conditioning has to be on full, and air conditioning throughout the hotel itself is poor. There is a very tiny beach at the bottom of the hill but it is pebbly and not worth visiting, the area around the beach is full of younger people playing very loud music and having foam parties during the day. This area is dead at night. You need to get a bus to get to anywhere decent. Would not recommend this hotel.More

Not a 4 star!!!
On arrival we were shown to our rooms. Or I should say, taken out the front and pointed to them. So after carrying two 20kg bags up a hill and 32 steps to get to our room at 2.30 Am we opened the room to the bare basics. Room felt very 3 star. We had booked as a couple but had w single beds on wheels. Not to mention they were rock hard and the pillows incredibly lumpy. After 3 hours of not being able to sleep I rang reception and they said they would bring a mattress topper tomorrow and new pillows tomorrow...could not sleep that night. Mattress topper came but pillows took 3 more nights and we're just as bad. Cleaning staff missed bits, didn't empty bins, didn't clean glasses sometimes no towels at all. Air con poor. Food poor. Bar menu very limited. I paid Â£960 p/p for this bloody holiday and I spent â¬600 euros for the week eating out and drinking out as I was massively dissapointed. Will not recommend, will not return. If you pay cheap for this place, I could accept it...but not at what I payed for this hotel to pretend to be something it is certainly not. More
Not what you would expect
This is not a 4 star hotel. The food is basic and doesn't go much further than pork and fish. The beer and wine is very cheap and nasty. When I ordered a gin and tonic at the bar it was served in a small plastic cup with no lime. I did ask for lime or something that would add spice to the drink but i was told they didn't have anything. After 1am you need to pay for your drinks. After 1 I ordered a gin and tonic and was given a nice large glass and plenty of lime and ice. I found this very cheeky. I did notice the owner of the hotel sitting in the corner watching the staff every move just incase he might have to pay for the luxury of having a slice of lime in your drink. More the point there are lime trees in the grounds of the hotel. I will not stay here again. Oh and the beer is 6 euros a bottle if you want somehting that's not cheap and nasty. The mini market 25 meters from the bar is only 2.50 a bottle.More

We spent two weeks here - last two weeks in June into the first couple of days of July. We had a really brilliant holiday and were really pleased with our choice of hotel. The transfer from the airport was fairly quick and smooth and on the way I noticed some of the other hotels that I'd considered booking and started to feel a bit anxious about where we were going but when we arrived I was really pleased. The hotel lobby is very cool and spacious and we had our keys and were escorted to our room in no time. I'd booked two rooms - a twin for myself and my younger daughter and a double for my elder daughter and her partner. We were shown to an apartment with a double and a twin. The double was huge with loads of wardrobe space, a tv, a fridge a dressing table, etc. The main bathroom was spacious and had everything you would expect. The twin room had twin beds, a wardrobe, a tv, a fridge and a sofa. The living area had a sofa and a coffee table. There was also another bathroom with a shower. Both bedrooms had balconies and air con and the wi-fi worked fine in the room. We hadn't expected to be in an apartment and said so and the manager was quite happy to change us around but having reviewed our options we decided to stay where we were and we were very happy. The room was cleaned every day and fresh towels were provided and the beds were made. We were just behind the main hotel which was a good spot I think. I estimate it took about 30 seconds to walk to the bar but we were never bothered by any noise when we were in the apartment. There are six or seven pools and they were clean all the time we were there. The views to the sea are spectacular. On reading reviews since we got back I think perhaps the hotels got busier after we left but when we were there we never had any problems with finding sun beds or places to sit. The hotel staff was fantastic and the animation team were incredibly hard working. There was a programme of non-stop entertainment all day every day from 10am to 11pm. The gym was a bit basic but there were a few treadmills, bikes etc. The spa is excellent and the treatments on offer are very good quality and a very professional experience. There are all kinds of facilities on offer I'm sure we didn't even see half of them - tennis courts, volley ball courts, mini golf, etc. There were some interesting excursions on offer but the only one we went on was to the water park which was great value for money and a fantastic day out. A couple of times we went down into the town for cocktails at the harbour which was pleasant (7 euros for a taxi back) but as everyone says the village up the hill is well worth checking out and we enjoyed a lovely meal there. We did go to the beach but felt it was a bit of a trek and the sunbeds and parasols were a bit expensive for four people so we generally preferred to lounge around in the hotel grounds. The hotel restaurant was very good and we all enjoyed the food. We felt that people who did not enjoy the food here should perhaps review their choice of an all inclusive holiday. There was plenty of choice and variety and there were different things on offer every day. So in summary - we had a great time and had no complaints at all. The staff was friendly and helpful and the animation team all work very hard. We loved our holiday and would go back tomorrow.More
