    Location 9.47 /10

    The Imperial Belvedere is located on the side of a mountain overlooking Hersonissos seaside resort (1,968 feet from the beach). The hotel is located 15 miles from Heraklion airport. Count a little less than half an hour for transfers.

    Accommodation 7.20 /10

    The rooms are spacious (430 feet²), bright-coloured, clean, and furnished in a modern style. They have air conditioning, satellite television, safe, refrigerator, and telephone with direct international access. The bathrooms, all in marble, feature a small tub, a sink, a hair dryer, a large mirror, and toilet. The large balcony offers a seaview (with supplement) or a view of the mountain. Families can be accommodated in a bungalow. These large 3 or 4-person rooms are located in the small buildings on the front of the complex. They are organised in two rooms, separated by a sliding partition. They are very long, and unfortunately dark.

    Overview 6.45 /10

    Built in 2001, the Imperial is part of the same complex as the Royal. It includes a central building hosting the lobby and restaurant, and numerous units scattered in terraces, with the 337 rooms. A small wellness centre offers an indoor pool (2,798 feet²), a nice fitness room, and a sauna. Outside is the pool space with a seawater pool (8,070 feet²), surrounded by a solarium with deckchairs and parasols. On the lower terrace are the swimming pool of the Royal, the mini-club, a playground, a snack-bar, and an entertainment boutique (loaning games). The lower level is equipped with three large round pools, one of which entirely reserved for children (decorations, water games, etc.). This is where the Imperial entertainment takes place (in German). It is also where you will find the mini-club (German-speaking), a snack-bar, and a stage... Last, below this are the various playgrounds and sport courts: tennis, beach volley, shuffle-board, mini-golf, etc.

    Food and drink 6.45 /10

    The hotel's restaurant is located near the pool. It is a large, modern room, crowded and noisy at rush hour. Therefore, we recommend the pretty terrace or annex rooms such as the first floor sitting room, which has its own buffet. The food selection is sufficient, although very international to please the German clientele. The all-inclusive formula includes drinks (water, coffee, tea, soft drinks, raki, ouzo, brandy, local wine, draught beer) from 10:00 AM to 1:00 AM, as well as snacks from the snack-bar from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM (pizza, toasts, etc.).

    Beach

    The hotel is not in the immediate proximity of a public beach. To enjoy the seaside, one must go to the Star Beach, a very comprehensive water park located on the coast, 1,640 feet from the hotel. Please note that there is an entrance fee, but the hotel offers its guests one free entrance ticket to the park from the 15th April to the 15th October. There, you will find everything you ever dreamed of: water slides, pools, bars, go-karting, bungee jumping, horseback riding, water sports, etc. Inside the park, two beaches are equipped with deckchairs and parasols. They are covered with fine sand, very narrow, and with a disappointing environment since they are surrounded by colourful and noisy recreation equipment.

    To know

    The entertainment team of the Imperial is German-speaking. There, a team of 6 activitiy leaders offers various activities from 10:00 AM to midnight: sports, games, tournaments, theme evenings, etc. For children 4 to 10 years old, a mini-club is open in July and August.

      The Hara Ilios is a family-oriented, old fashioned establishment that is a bit withdrawn from the sea but that has a lot of charm. The amenities are modest, to avoid saying Spartan, especially in the guest rooms. The Cretan village atmosphere is particularly enjoyable and the hotel provides a good starting point to set off on many an expedition into the marvels of the island of Crete.

Good facilities for this village-style, friendly and sporty hotel, but don't expect more from the spa than a small well-being centre.

      Don't be misled by the grand name of the Kosta Mare Palace & Spa: it is a basic, all-inclusive hotel which is well-maintained but certainly not luxurious. Its many facilities raise it to four-star status, but the setting is starkly lacking in character.
