You can expect sea views, pretty gardens and plenty of pools at the Royal Belvedere. It’s 10 minutes from the go-karts and watersports at Star Beach, too.
The Royal Belevedere has a hilltop setting, so sweeping views of the sea and mountains come as standard. It’s next to the Imperial Belvedere, and the two hotels share huge gardens and a handful of swimming pools.
Lively Star Beach is a 10-minute stroll down the hill – the hotel offers a free bus if you don’t fancy the walk. Head up the hill, meanwhile, and you’ll find a couple of quiet, traditional villages.

We stayed here for 2 weeks from 26 August till 9 September. Let me first write a plus/min overview, and explain them below. Negative: - Staff - All-in concept ?? - Mobility - Evening shows - Swimming pools - Zoo ?? - One large smoking area - Outdated Positive: - Housekeeping - View - Swimming pools - Services - Public toilets - Meals Letâs start with the staff, I do not understand how other reviewers have experienced anything positive concerning the staff, almost everybody is rude and unfriendly. No one is smiling, and they only nod if you ask them for something. Only the cleaning lady was nice, smiled and was very helpful. This is not how you treat your customers. Then the âAll-in conceptâ, yes majority is covered, but paying extra for: orange juice (@breakfast), towels (for swimming pool), alcoholic beverages (cheap free 3th rate wine/whiskey/beer is not drinkable), safe (in room). This should be covered. Ok maybe not the spirits, but please serve decent wine and soda. The Hotel is situated on the hillside (gives you a beautiful view though), which means thereâre stairs everywhere. If you want to go from the lobby to the lowest pool, you need to descend 4 or 5 different stairways. I can imagine this is difficult for elderly/disabled people, or people sitting in a wheelchair. OK the evening shows, they are badâ¦. They are so bad itâs almost pathetic. Majority of the shows are lead/performed by the (male) animation team. There is no professionalism at all, they are just doing something. After the show there is nothing to do in the Hotelâ¦ There is actually a piano in the main lobby, but no one uses it (itâs even not allowed). They keep a couple of animals caged close to the entranceâ¦ is this really necessary?? Six goats on a square meter is not cool. The pools donât get cleaned often. At least Iâve got this impressionâ¦ the kids pool is not clean at all, and it should (as small kids swallow lots of pool water). On other thing is the âsun lounger reservationsâ, itâs even written that itâs not allowed to reserve chairs before 9 oâclock, also after 40min unattended, towels will get removed. This is a joke, because staff is not doing anything. There are NO lifeguards, so please watch your children. I saw a little boy almost drowning (yet his parents did not pay attention). Almost forgot to mention, itâs saltwater they use. The Hotel is one large smoking area, you can smoke everywhere, even in the restaurant. This is not pleasant at all. They should forbid smoking at crowded areas (especially the restaurants). The Hotel is outdated. We had our room in the main Hotel on the 4th floor. They are small, and it looks like weâre in the 70âs. Also the rooms are not isolated at all, you can hear everything which is extremely annoying if RUDE guests come back to their rooms late at night screaming/singing/shouting. I know, you always have some background noise in a Hotel, but this is extreme. Luckily there are also some positive point: Housekeeping is good. Our room got cleaned every day, and clean it was. Great Job. Also the hallway on our floor got cleaned every day (as it should), much appreciated. If you can, book a room with sea-view. The view is extraordinary. As I said before, the Hotel is located on a hillside, so you get great views. With a sea-view, you only got the sun in the morning, so your room stays cool in the afternoon. There are 6 or 7 swimming pools. Theyâve even got an Olympic pool (yes 50m). The pools for the kids are located at the lowest deck, so people who canât stand kids, just move to the upper deck, or the pool from the other hotel. They also got an indoor pool. The kids pool is great with lots of fun. They got lots of services; doctor, car rental, massage/wellness, fitness, boutiques (pricey, so do not go there, just walk down towards Star-beach), pool tables (a lot), Wi-Fi (extremely slow though), shuttle bus to the beach. I also want to mention the public toilets, they are great. Very clean (couple of times per day they get cleaned), and modern (everything automatic, even the light, food flushers, etc. Last but not least, the food: For an âAll-in Hotelâ itâs just what you can expect. Breakfast is ok, youâve got lots of choices; pancakes, waffles, omelets (I always had to ask for more tomatoâs/onions/etc, teaspoon amounts are just not enough), eggs, cereals, fruit, sausages/beacon, bread/croissants/etc. At lunch and dinner, they try some variations, but mostly itâs the same. Downside you canât get coffee after lunch/dinner, they just shutdown the machines. It would be great if they could introduce some themed evenings (like Greek, Turkish, Italian, whatever). You should come early so you can get a nice place (outside, or at the window), and get the house made salads (they are great, I really enjoyed them). If you stay for 2 weeks, and you only eat at the Hotel I think youâll get bored soon, so leave a couple of times, do some excursions or go to Koutoukoufari (8min walk), so you can vary a bit with your meals. Bottom line, an average Hotel which could use some renovations (rooms) but MUST do something about their staff.More

Good family holiday
We stayed in room 8006 which was 1/3 of the way down the hill. It had two rooms, one with 2 single beds, the other a double and a sofa bed. It had a full bathroom and an additional toilet. The bed was very hard but we slept ok. The buffet was not really aimed to children and my daughter struggled to get food she would eat some nights. There was always options for me and my husband. We spent the days by the kids pool, lots of sun beds but we did go off season. We took a trip down to star beach water park one day, 3 year old loved all the kids pools and play parks. The road to the beach was very busy to cross, we ended up getting the free bus back. Our room was not great for the buggy as you had to use the main driveway with no pavement to access the pools/ restaurant. It was a nice hotel, built in 70's and what I would expect from a European all inclusive. On our last day used room 517 to shower in, amazing views down to the sea.More

Lovely family holiday
We stayed at the hotel for just under 2 weeks in the May half term and we had a lovely time. I would say that there seems to be 2 tiers of hotel room. The first one was not as they look in the brochure and quite run down with a musty smell. We asked to move and the hotel room was brilliant - lots of space with modern fittings. The view was spectacular of the sea and some of the town. It had a grass verge which the children could play games on. The food was good with a good choice and catered well for the children with their own section. My son who is 2 years old has food allergies and the restaurant Manager was amazing in providing special milk and food even desserts and brought it over personally each meal time. That really made a difference to our holiday. I would recommend a visit to the spa - excellent service and good prices. The only thing I would say is the hotel is not a luxury 4 star, it's in the lower end in the furnishings in the room, however it was very good value for money with good facilities.More
Deeandfam, Manchester, United Kingdom
Felt really valued by a terrific staff team. Food first class with 3 restaurants including a Cretan restaurant. We've been to this hotel before and will be back. In previous years the clientele was predominantly German but this year mostly Italian and English. 6 pools inc a 50m pool. Loads of sun loungers.More
Royal belvedere hotel
Hotel is immaculate and well maintained. Pool area cleaned daily, restaurants clean and staff really lovely. Only fault with the food is it caters for european tastes so feeding the kids can be a bit of a challenge. Entertainment can be a bit tiresome but kids loved it, that bad it's quite funny.More
