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

Stayed one week in August with 2 teenagers.
Stayed in 2 rooms which although not luxurious were clean and fairly spacious.
Friendly staff who spoke good English.
Food although not as much choice as other 5* places we've been to was very tasty and we never struggled to find something we liked.
Plenty of lovely cocktails to work our way through all included in the price!
Layout of the place did not really suit us as it's on so many different levels with lots of steps and it was a long walk anywhere especially in the heat.
Sun bed situation was a nightmare as there simply aren't enough to go round and we had to get up at 7am to get beds together- not what you want when you're on holiday. There is plenty of room for more.
Water park across the road is worth a visit for a day.
Evening entertainment quite good and it's a nice little walk to the amphitheater but in the daytime as it's so spaced out you didn't get to know what was going on as you didn't see any of the staff so there wasn't a lot of atmosphere and the kids were quite bored.
Wifi is terrible unless in the lobby.
Overall a pleasant week but nothing outstanding.More

Rooms nice and clean, good view from balcony. Maid service very kind and trustworthy.
Food was lovely, such good variety (put on 10 pounds in a week as I wanted to try it all). Love the variety of restaurants at no extra cost on all inclusive- a touch of luxury to this hotel. Would recommend booking the special restaurant for a romantic night or for a family night too! If you do not get a chance, the main buffet food is just as nice!
Beach was stunning and nice and private.
Drinks were incredible, as part of the all inclusive there was such good variety and definitely got my money's worth
Bar staff were great, would make you up any kind of concoction you would like.
So many pools to choose from and so much bathing space, beautifully scenic throughout. Biggest downfall of this hotel was that the pools were saltwater. Genuinely more salty than the sea, horrible in your eyes... Would recommend sunbathing round pools or beach and then swimming in sea.
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here, the staff were incredibly friendly and there was very little reason to leave the hotel of a night as there was plenty of atmosphere across the bars.
As far as I'm aware bars shut between 12-1 sometime so if you like to party later than that then it's only a 10 minute taxi to the strip which the hotel can arrange.
Would recommend for the area.More
Great views,great value

Family Holiday May 2016
Two adults, 18 year old & 7 year old. Booked a garden room but upgraded once there to a poolside room. So worth the extra money. Open the door of the room and straight in the pool.
Fabulous weather, staff, food. Clean complex. Lovely beach. Free half hour pedalo and other water activities available. Plenty of snack bars and restaurants, good food & drinks. Visited local water park (careful of the childrens area, that bucket of freezing cold water comes down with some force and knocked our lad flying, couldn't get him back in). Did a evening trip to the mountains (missed the sunset, which was the whole point) but a lovely meal and evening out!
Would go again but so many other places to see! More
