Imperial Belvedere

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.

Thought it was good hotel.but food was samey.and not very good signage.sun beds were supposed to be free from nine out clock.but some people must have had there towels on from about six in morning and repeatedly been told no reserve them b 4 nine.entertainment was not that good.was a comedy act on and to say the least not funny.and this brings me to the trips.went spinalonga and thought 68 euros was a big much.considering it was 2.and went for lunch so was 66 for the rest.also the rep still owes me 4 because he had no change.which was nice.finally ure up on top off a hill.and not very good for going in to the town for a walk.also had Greece tummy.but apart from that had a fantastic time xMore

Colin J,

To Large and not great

Won't go back to this hotel. Pools were good unfortunately can't say much about the rest The staff very rarely smiled the one exception was the lady behind the blue bar. As this is a joint hotel with its partner the Royal it make it far to big. there are plenty of sun beds but if you want one be really early The restaurant is far to small and the kitchen staff could not keep up with the demand. No coffee could be had in restaurant after lunch or dinner which meant you had to use the bars Although it was clean and the room pleasant there were more downs than up. Sorry Imperial won't be backMore

Great hotel, poor location

I recently visited this hotel with my friends and the hotel itself was fabulous. This hotel is perfect for all generations offering a modern quiet bar and an animation pool which has music playing all day and lots of fun activities running! All of the staff that we met during our stay were lovely and very friendly and talkative! While the animation team are good with the kids during the day, they also take the party goers out to clubs at night. I went for 10 days to this hotel and found myself getting very bored towards the end. It is very excluded and a long walk to the town. I would not stay here again as there is Absoloutleyfabulous nothing to do other than visit star beach which was closing. Also the food was very poor, however whether this was for economic reason or whatever we ended up eating out a few nights. Expect the same food every night and something food for children may not be available for any body going with kids I would keep this in mind. However during the day a snack bar is available with amazing pizza and toasties!! I hope you found this helpful ☺️☺️More


my week for the third time in Imperial Belvedere

I've been there for the third time with my 5 years old daughter: great place for us. We were give an upgrade room without any request and it was new! Anyway also the standard rooms are more than ok: spacious and very clean. Restaurant is perfect for children as if offers a large variety of food.The swimmingpools are great and the miniclub as well. My daughter loves very much the little zoo on the road to the main buildings. Staff is very well trained and everybody is very nice and available, whatever request you could have.More

Couples holiday to Hersonissos

My boyfriend and I stayed here for ten nights from 16th June. The hotel itself is good but could be so much better. Our room was a disappointment. On arrival we were asked if we would like to upgrade to a sea view room for €6 per day, which we thought was reasonable so agreed to the charge. The location of the sea view room was a huge disappointment! The balcony was absolutely tiny and we were just about the furthest room away from the sea you could get. Definite rip off for €60. The room itself was cleaned daily which we were impressed by however the facilities were severely lacking. We had ONE plug socket between us which is nowhere near enough so my advice would be to bring an extension cable! The electricity went off when you were out of the room which meant you couldn't charge a phone etc when you were out which we found frustrating considering we only had one plug. The facilities in the hotel were brilliant, the pools were gorgeous and there was always plenty of sun beds. However, the restaurant again was a disappointment. Be careful with the meat, especially from the counter at the back of the canteen. On several occasions we cut open some chicken or pork to find it was uncooked in the middle. The location of the hotel again was a bit of a disappointment, it took at least 30 mins to get into the centre of Hersonissos for drinks or a meal when walking which in the heat feels like a long time! We definitely recommend a trip in to the town though, lots of beautiful restaurants and plenty of bars for cocktails if you're feeling lively. We hired a jeep one day and travelled across the island which was amazing, there's so much more to Crete than the imperial so make sure you see it! On a side note, is it really fair to keep those animals caged up in the heat as you walk up to the hotel? We found this is a bit shocking and unnecessary, the hotel has so much to offer that the animals were largely ignored which doesn't seem fair. To sum up, a good hotel with nice pools but could be a lot better. Hersonissos itself is lovely for couples and we will definitely visit Crete. restaurantsMore
