    Location 6.0 /10

    The Royal 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 6.70 /10

    All standard double rooms are located in the main building. They are spacious, comfortable, and have a fan and telephone with direct line. The recently renovated rooms are more colourful, and have more modern furniture. In addition, they have air conditioning, small refrigerator, safe (for a fee), and satellite television. All bathrooms are identical, white and dull. They feature a sink, tub, and toilets. Large terraces offer a view of the mountain or the sea (with supplement). Families can be accommodated in a bungalow. These large 3 or 4-person rooms, all entirely renovated, are located in the small buildings on the back and on the front of the complex. They are organised into two rooms separated by a sliding partition, and are somewhat more comfortable than the others (hair dryer, telephone in the bathroom, etc..).

    Overview 6.45 /10

    Built in 1975 and renovated in 1999, the Royal Belvedere shares the same complex as the Imperial. It is a large concrete 4-storey building with four series of bungalows built on the side of the mountain. This hotel can accommodate up to one thousand guests in season, it is built on several terraces over its entire width and depth. On the upper level is the swimming pool area with an Olympic-size seawater pool, and a children's pool. There is also a solarium with deckchairs and parasols (free), the mini-club, a playground, a snack-bar, a stage, 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.). Here, all amenities are reserved for the German-speaking guests of the Imperial Belvedere located in the same complex (mini-club, snack-bar, etc.). Last, below this are the various playgrounds and sport courts: tennis, beach volley, shuffle-board, mini-golf, etc.

    Food and drink 6.70 /10

    Considering to the capacity of this hotel, the restaurant is a huge room on two levels (1,000 seats, counting terraces!). For the atmosphere, you should expect to find the hubbub of a large cafeteria rather than of a charming holiday cottage! An entire room is reserved for buffets. Their number may be insufficient during rush hour. The choice of dishes 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 15 April to the 15 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

    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. Last, please be aware that the guests of the Royal can enjoy some of the amenitites at the Imperial hotel located next to the Royal.

      The Star Beach Village is ideal for families and tight budgets, and is, as its name indicates, built like a village. It includes several buildings that provide various versions of studios, all of which include a private kitchen. Located in the town of Hersonissos, which is well known for its wild nightlife and parties that continue, full swing, into the early hours, it's close to the sea but doesn't provide direct access to the beach.

      The Silva Beach is an all-inclusive, friendly hotel. The setting, with its nice colourful shades and flowers, is very pleasant, and its location is perfect if you want to enjoy the busy life of the city of Hersonissos. Its only downside, however, is that its beach is not very big.

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.
