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.
Honeymooners receive sparkling wine and fruit in the room upon arrival and free room upgrade, subject to availability

Eating is a very important factor when it comes to feeling well during a stay in an all inclusive hotel.
This hotel serves all kinds of well prepared food but it is unclair what the ingredients are. As an whole plant based food eater, every dish I try is an adventure, not necessarily a nice one. Except the most obvious dishes I can not be sure if the dish I try contains ingredients of animal origin like milk, butter, fish, eggs, meat or cheese.
This really spoils a great deal of what had could been a really great stay in this otherwise great all inclusive resort.
So please don't cook Bruxelles sprouts together with fish, don't use butter in all your cooked vegetables, don't add cheese crumbs or mussels or mayonaise to your bean salads.
You could serve those animal foods as an additive your guests can freely choose from.
Please label your dishes as vegan if appropriate and make as much dishes vegan-friendly as possible. This will cost you nothing and will make your service so much better.More
One of the best hotels I've stayed in!
Stayed here last week with my boyfriend and loved it. Probably the best hotel I've ever stayed in. The staff were amazing and definitely a credit to the hotel, they were always smiling and welcoming and really couldn't do enough for you.
Food variety was excellent and of top quality in all the restaurants the Italian was probably our favourite because of the made to order pasta and the view of sitting over the pool. The Greek restaurant on the beach was excellent too we really couldn't believe the range of foods to choose from. Also the ice cream parlour was amazing! We had about 10 vanilla and baileys milkshakes a day- couldn't get enough of them!
We loved that the pools were so quiet there was never a struggle to get a sun bed and a few days we had the pool to ourselves! Also the cleanliness of the pools and the hotel in general was top standard. The staff must work all hours to have the hotel looking so clean!
We went to the beach a couple of times but don't really like the beach- more of a pool person! That being said it had many sunbeds and umbrellas available also pedalos provided for free which was a nice touch, with many more water sports to choose from. We also visited the water park next door which was only 12 euros each and a really good day out.
All in all an excellent 5* hotel, wouldn't hesitate to come back and would 100% recommend as we had an amazing holiday. Thank you Porto Bello Royal.More
Second relaxing visit
Just finished two lovely enjoyably weeks at this hotel.
Second visit .they have made some changes for the better since our last stay.
Check in was smooth even though we arrived late due a delayed flight taken straight to our rooms .all very clean and a good size.
A few little maintenance issues which I only mention because the speed at which they were sorted out
The reception team were friendly smiling and always helpful.
The restaurant are very smooth run .overseen by a group of managers who keep on top of things.
The main restaurant is a help yourself buffet style.
Always found something of interest .
They've now moved the Greek and Mediterranean restaurant to the beach area .much better to have lunch overlooking the sea.
We just chilled this time so didn't get involved in any of the activities.but the animation team left you alone after trying to get you to join in.
The management is very much hand on and always seem to be keeping a eye out To keep things tip top.
This is one we would definitely give another Try
I'm sure there are more in depth reviews.
but in short
Well looked after.
Nothing bad to report.
A great all inclusive hotel for the price.
Oh and fantastic wifi.
Perhaps a cheeky little break their next year?

Perfect in every way!!
This hotel and our holiday were both absolutely perfect. The hotel, pools, grounds, rooms, crockery, cutlery, glasses etc were spotlessly clean. The staff were so friendly and helpful. The food and drinks (especially the cocktails) were fabulous - so much choice and very good quality too.Our room and view (659 - Junior Suite with balcony and seaview) was just the best and well worth the small amount to upgrade.
The beach was gorgeous - sandy and crystal clear water.
Our holiday could not have been any more perfect so thank you to all at the Atlantica Porto Bello Royal who made that possible.More

The best holiday I have had. 14 large pools. Having a terrace in front of pool felt like my own swim up room. Staff excellent. Definitely going back.
