Hotel Atlantica Portobello Royal  

There’s certainly no shortage of pools at the beachside Hotel Atlantica Portobello Royal – it’s got 14 of them.

From the outside, this hotel feels like a Mediterranean village, all low-rise, terracotta buildings. Bedrooms are getting a makeover for summer 2016, when we’ll also be unveiling luxurious new rooms with private pools.

You’re a stone’s throw from the sandy beach, which has views to neighbouring Nissyros. And it’s a five-minute drive to Kardamena’s restaurants and shops.

Best Holiday ever

My partner and I visited in May this year. Everything about the hotel/area/food/drink/service was incredible and we will definitely be visiting again in the future! Yes it is under a flight path, but it lasts about 10 seconds and it didn't bother us at all. I had a spa treatment whilst I was there which I highly recommend. The variety of food and drink is fantastic. The beach is beautiful and there is so much to do in the area including a water park, boat trips, you can visit the town nearby which has lots of restaurants and cute little shops etc. In the hotel there are so many pools to relax by which are very clean and beautiful. The gelato place in the complex is really nice! The Greek restaurant by the sea was our favourite place to eat. I would recommend it to everyone! Definitely worth all of its 5 stars. More

Jodie H,

Summer holiday

Very nice clean hotel, Would stay again. Staff are very nice, Pools are excellent, Food very good, Beach is ok not fantastic, Bad Bits No hotel bus to town 3.5 km away Taxi 9 euros each way there is a local bus at 1.80 Eurostar each way, Entertainment is rubbish and very repetitive. No children entertainment. If you are on beech or pool no waiter service long walk to get a drink. For English the only TV Chanel is BBC world news. To stay. In room after 12.00 is a extra 55 Euros.

For a hotel holiday - the best!

Fantastic trip, (I'm just about to leave the hotel now), staff are so pleasant, nothing is ever to much trouble. They adore children and work hard to make sure everyone is kept entertained and happy. Food fantastic, lots of drink stations. Themed restaurants are a great change to the normal dining. We loved the Thai and visited the Greek three times. There is never an issue with finding a sun lounger, however, the policing of early riser putting their towels out just did not materialise. Definitely will return. More

Great hotel

Stayed here in late May for 10 days Hotel was excellent, very clean and food was great We stayed in block down by the beach overlooking the Italian restaurant ( can't remember the number of the room) The rooms were brand new and gave the appearance of a cabin on a cruise ship but bigger Wi fi was excellent here Our room did not have a mirror (only in the bathroom) which my wife found disappointing This part of the hotel was very tranquil, being away from the main area. Didn't notice the steps from the top to the bottom as they were well spaced out Food in the main restaurant was always good, both evening meals and breakfast. We ate in both the Italian and Asian restaurants and both were good Long trousers are no longer required in any of the restaurants, just smart shorts Lunchtimes we always ate at either of the beach restaurants (Greek or Mediterranean) as these were always very relaxed. We never had a problem booking these, sometimes booking on the same day at breakfast although this was advised against due to their popularity. Couldn't get enough of their milkshakes which were very moreish (my wife pointed out I once had the equivalent of 6 ice creams!!) Always got a lounger by the pool and we tended to spend mornings there before going on the beach in the afternoon Beach had plenty of loungers always available It was very rocky going into the sea at our part of the beach so we would go in at the beach on the next hotel which was 100 yards further up We even used their loungers sometimes without any bother. View from the beach to the other islands out to sea was stunning. There weren't many children when we went as it was out of school holidays. Never went on any trips as it was too hot to move when we were there! Staff were excellent in all restaurants and at reception, I couldn't fault anyone. Never had a problem getting drinks at any of the bars and tipping is optional. Noise from planes was minimal and in fact I found them fascinating to watch as they circled out to sea before coming in to land. They were not constant all day, tending to come in bursts, 4-5 times a day. All in all I would definitely recommend this hotel for a relaxing holiday. More


Family wedding

I was so excited looking forward to this holiday with my 2 small children, husband and extended family but unfortunately it failed to meet expectations. Arrival at the hotel was awful with a 45 min wait to check in at 11 pm with a baby and toddler. It was stiflingly hot as they didn't have the air conditioning on and left the doors and windows open all the time. The hotel is not child friendly and is difficult to get around as it's on quite a hill. Our room was a suite and was beautiful and modern with a wonderful balcony overlooking the sea which was amazing but the hotel as a whole fell short and wasn't the 5 star I would expect. The food was the same every night and not very inspiring, the bars were not open all the time and were too few and and spread out too far apart. The icecream parlour, shops and general amenities weren't open at times to suit families with small children but I suspect that we are not their target audience. The pools were beautiful and clean and modern with a children's pool at the bottom of the complex with a small shop. Warning! the large pool next to the restaurant does not have any barrier around it and my niece fell in the deep end by accident when it was dark. The bar and restaurant staff were fantastic and we're from all over Europe and they were welcome and kind getting to know us over the week. There were some brilliant positives to this hotel but equally some negatives and on the whole I would not say this was a 5 star hotel maybe a 4, aimed at couples and I won't be visiting again.More
