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.

Good Hotel

Someone has reviewed the food at this Hotel as 'AWFULL'. They are wrong if anything the food was very good and Buffet style with plenty of choice. Pools were clean and tidy with good pool bars. Entertainment for the children excellent. We were let down with the rooms that we were given, only because we expected the 'Family room type'. This was not the fault of the Hotel who said they would upgrade us if we wanted. The fault was with Thompson tour operator who misled us showing the Family Room photos in the brochure. Good location with an excellent village just behind.( Kousalafari).More

Impressive Imperial

My son and I went to the Imperial Belvedere Hotel in Crete last August all inclusive and found it very pleasing. The Hotel was spotless, food very good and lots of it, staff very accommodating and good evening entertainment. Our only small criticism is the beds were too firm and not as comfy as we would have liked. Obviously the big plus is everyday was clear blue skies and ticked over at 35 degrees.More

Good Hotel, Friendly Staff, Great animation team

Me and my 2 children arrived at the belvedere and I was dreading it after some of the reviews I read. I paid for a room to sleep 3 and got a room to sleep 3, I wasn't planning on being in my room other than to sleep,and get showered, it was cleaned daily and we had fresh towels everyday. The staff were wonderful, dont know if I got special single parent treatment or if it was the end of season and they were going home soon, but they were friendly to us. It is quite a large complex so you may have to walk a little bit, our room was in the 900's and the furthest away, but we still managed to get to the pools etc without any complaints from the little ones. Pools are great massive choice and there are 3 parks on site too. The food was good we all ate well and my 5YO is the fussiest eater ever, the restaurant can get a bit crowded.I cant comment on the beer as I didn't drink just being me and the kids. Evening entertainment was ok my children enjoyed themselves. Because of the time of year we went the hotel was shutting down and the royal had already closed. all of the "out of the hotel" activities (waterparks etc) were closed. all in all the hotel did me and my 8 and 5 year old. I would go back to the imperial I do think in high season it would be utter chaos with both hotels open and full. but I would defo go back maybe the end of September or the beginning of may. Not going to mark the hotel down for the weather but we did have a few thunder storms so the animation team brought the entertainment into the blue bar(instead of on the wet outdoor stage).More

Family holiday and wedding

We stayed at The Imperial Belvedere at the beginning of October 2014. We enjoyed joining in the various activities on offer. The pools were very nice, the areas were always clean and tidy. The Reception and cleaning staff were very friendly and helpful, the animation team work really hard throughout the day and evening to keep children and adults entertained/ busy. The waiters/waitresses could have been friendlier. The rooms were cleaned daily. The wifi was not very good. The food was ok, I would have preferred more Greek options but I understand they are catering for many. Drinks came in plastic cups which wasnt great. Have been to Koutouloufari a few times and still love the surrounding villages.More

Good customer service but awful food

We stayed at the Imperial in late October and arrived with high expectations. Unfortunately we left rather disappointed. Our main concerns were with the food which could only be described as awful at best. Cold, greasy, salty and bland - so by the end of the week we were living off bread rolls. That said, the desserts were quite nice. The weather didn't help either. We encountered thunderstorms and it seemed to rain every single day. The hotel isn't designed for rain as we found out with leaking in the hotel ceilings and puddles in the rooms. On the whole though we did enjoy the trip. The staff were very helpful and friendly throughout and the hotel was relatively nice. Also we enjoyed the various activities and picturesque views of the surrounding area.More
