You’ll feel really close to nature at the Royal Belvedere – it’s on top of a hill, with loads of lemon, olive and pine trees growing in the grounds. Plus, the rooms come with views of the sea or the mountains. Pool-wise, there’s a big Olympic-sized number and a smaller one for kids, and you can use any of the pools at the next-door Imperial Belvedere. As for food, the Minos buffet restaurant puts on regular Asian and Italian themed dinners. If you fancy eating out, there are restaurants and bars on the beach – it’s about a ten-minute walk down the hill – and you’ve got a handful of village tavernas even closer to home.

Animation team was amazing and the restaurant management team was super
We had so much fun at the hotel. The animation team had a great show every evening and we loved it. The restaurant management was really super and they made us our favorite Greek dishes. I am so happy I took my kids and went there.More
Great hotel and Staff, return trip booked
Have just returned from this wonderful hotel and can only say WOW!!!! We flew in to Chania and after a 3 hour drive arrived at this massive complex, we were greeted at reception by a smile and this was something we found throughout our week there, the staff were always polite and smiling. Got to our room and the key did not work, a problem that was sorted out promptly and was the only hiccup all week. Staying in the royal Belvedere you can also use the Imperial Belvedere facilities as well and many a day was spent by this pool at the Imperial side, the Royals pool being the Olympic size pool. Food all week was plentiful and as it was Orthodox Easter Sunday while we were there a full lunchtime entertainment package was supplied with Traditional Greek music and dancing. This was in the restaurant in the Royal which is very impressive with views out over the coast and sea, unfortunately this was the only time the restaurant was used as it was still early in the season so they only needed to open the one restaurant and that was the one in the Imperial. Service in the restaurant was efficient and there was always plenty of choice. A few people have commented on here about what you get on All-inclusive and yes you do have to pay 1 euro 50 for a cushion for the day for the sunbeds but this means the sunbed and cushion is yours for the day, a small price to pay if your spending the day by the pool which is easily done as the pool in the imperial has a first class bar serving drinks all day from 11.00am and with the Greek sun shining down on you, it is paradise, the kids club is run at the Royals pool so it is also quieter at the Imperials pool. As a couple in our 50's my wife and I could not fault this hotel and we have stopped in a few all inclusive resorts and this rates with the best of them. The only comment I would make is as it was early in the season the adults entertainment was put on by the "Fun club" and had a bit to be desired but they did a good job with the kids. On the whole a perfect hotel complex, clean and ample room, perfect facilities for all ages, including smaller pools for children, an animal complex with donkeys and goats and a bus service that takes you down the hill to Star beach if you prefer the sea to the pools, Great food and service from the staff and a big Thank you to the 3 bar staff Irini, Babis and Blendy who kept our glasses full and provided hours of entertainment and conversation, cant wait to see you all in September. We stayed at the beginning of May 2013More

This was a nice clean hotel, food was nice, because we visited in May the entertainment wasn't up and running and the hotel was quiet, however that just meant that no where was crowded which was nice. Up a bit of a hill which wasn't fun in heat but perfectly manageable and they had a few animals which I liked to take a few apples from the breakfast buffet and feed. We hired a car for the day through the hotel to go to Spinalonga (the leper colony, well worth a trip) and all went very smoothly. The beach was nice there too, a good area. Stayed May 2012More

Good hotel and nice desserts
Me and my mum went for a week of relaxation and sun, the sun was there and the place was nice and relaxing, but we went as the season was just starting there was no entertainment in the evenings for adults but there was for children at 9pm, I think it is a bit to late to have children's entertainment on, the room was lovely and clean and the staff were very nice, the food was ok but the desserts were the best part there was fresh fruit and a large variety of cakes. I found the snacks throughout the day poor they were small portions and there was only one bar that was open until 11pm which I thought was a very early closing time, we ended up going out every night after our dinner as the drink selection in the hotel was very poor. The walk to and from the hotel was terrible the hill was so steep my poor mum struggled, there was a bus service to the beach but it was not frequent, the extra costs of the hotel were a rip off for cocktails they were €7 each and they charged for a cushion to go on the very hard sun loungers!! The atmosphere in the hotel was non existent as we arrived at the hotel the bar was shut and we were hungry so the staff let us have some ham and salad that had been left in the dining area ready for breakfast in the morning, the dining area was so small by the end of our week more people started to arrive and the place was so packed I would hate to see it at the hight of the summer!! We got what we went for sun and relaxation but there was a lack of fun in the hotel in the evenings, it was a nice holiday but I would not go back to this hotel againMore

Hard working animation team
We went to the Royal Belvedere in August 2012 with our two children age 1 and 5. The hotel was very busy (admittedly it was the height of the season). The room was basic and had good views out to sea and down to star beach, the pylons somewhat spoiled the view though! The food was ok what you would expect from all inclusive however because the restaurant was very busy everyone just pushed forward to grab food so it was a bit of a fight to get dinner, there was also always a queue at the ice cream with children pushing in all the time. The best thing about the holiday was the animation team who worked very hard and provided entertainment all day. It was the same team who looked after the kids clubs and sports in the day provided the evening entertainment. I did think they had a rest inbetween the kids club closing and the evening entertainment but then I saw them rehearsing at this time so they didnt get much of a respite. Our 5 year old visited the kids club alot and was always happy to go in, the animation team were mostly Belgian with one Dutch girl but they all spoke good english and were very responsible and understanding of the children. We went to Greece for a change as we thought we might experience some traditional greek entertainment but we were disappointed to find that the only greek entertainment they provided was chargeable and the area was closed off for the evening to guests who hadnt paid. Also there was not any traditional greek food in the restaurant so we could have been anywhere. There are also lots of steps and the main kids pool was down quite a large flight of steps so it was difficult to get around with the pushchair. Would recommend the pool in the daytime at the imperial as it is quieter and friendlier and a bit more stylish. Not sure I would go back to this hotel again but then we dont tend to go to the same place twice anyway.More
