There’s certainly no shortage of pools at this beachside hotel – it’s got 14 of them.
This hotel feels like a Mediterranean village. Low-rise, terracotta buildings surround an amazing 13 pools. And restaurant-wise, there’s everything from a Greek taverna to an elegant Asian restaurant.
You’re a stone’s throw from the sandy beach, which has views to neighbouring Nissyros. And it’s a 5-minute drive to Kardamena’s restaurants and shops – the courtesy bus will take you there.

Not to my 5 star expectations
Be assured. This is not a bad hotel. In fact it's excellent. However it certainly isn't 5 star. It's missing something. In a place that grows oranges, there was no juice at breakfast. Just cordial The WiFi was weak and certainly didn't extend to your room The beach garden was scruffy and unmanaged The beer was poor, no green and unbearable. There were very few branded spirits The mini bar had no alcohol. And was only restocked with water daily The entertainment was poor. The singer couldn't sing and the show was inclusively for the kids Bar service was slow Notwithstanding. The food was great. The staff friendly and welcoming and the rooms were spotless. It just missed those significant touchesMore
Lovely relaxing stay
Atlantica Porto Bello Royal On arrival only one person on desk to check coach arrivals in. Left to find own room 12am with poorly detailed map we luckily bumped into a security guard who was very helpful . The staff all seemed well trained and seemed very helpful and efficient. Some of the points raised by other reviewers seemed to have been noted and acted on . The two weeks we were there the hotel was very peaceful and relaxing.The food is very good quality especially as it is all inclusive. They try to vary the menus and have various restaurants on site to please everyone. If you think it's not enough for you the local village kardamina has several restaurants to try. The restaurants on the complex are booked a day ahead at reception. Food is similar to main restaurant worth a try for a change of venue we liked the Greek taverna . The rooms are spotless and a good size for the standard of hotel. The animation team were great and would leave you be if that was your wish. I got the feeling they were refining their programme on an ongoing basis to improve it. There was no booming music unless they had something going on to encourage participation. The evening entertainment was was usually some music in the main lobby . The animation team also put on some entertainment on in the Amatitheatre outside the front of the hotel. We had a look but not really for us, they also had put a bar out there after a review had said there wasn't one. Nice! The pools are also spotless and setup so you could find a spot that suited your needs.(I liked the tree spot ...fair skinned) The airport is close so planes did fly directly over the hotel. We found it more interesting than disturbing and you really don't notice Our holiday heroes ! Animation Sabina For the water aerobics And what we called stretchy stretchy ? (Yoga) The restaurant. Captains Katrina and Dionisia The bars. A little Dynamo of energy who never slowed down or stopped in lobby was Kornelia. Pool bar Bearta and Maragrita. Ice cream parlour was Evangelina who was always happy In her job. Lovely hotel highly recommend this one!More

June2015 visit we didn't want to end,..
From the start we were greeted with friendly faces and a clean environment , checkin was a simple & smooth procedure with well spoken English staff happy to help, the porter took us and our bags to our room which was a good size, clean and well located. We found all the staff very happy to see us and recognised us all especially my 9 yr old son, we drank and enjoyed the company of the pool bar staff day and night, the beach bar team in the afternoons and enjoyed being waited on at the lobby bar by there team during the evenings whilst listening to various local acts perform an array of music throughout the week. The food and drink options were more than plentiful ignore any bad reports ! and common areas and rooms kept clean with staff seen working from 7 am till 7pm. I would like to thank everyone and I know I will be returning thanks to the atlantica group for a happy break.More
My partner and I had the most wonderful holiday here. We could not fault this hotel in the slightest, the staff were beyond friendly, food was beautiful, great facilities and most importantly a very very clean resort. As a Brit, this is not what we would class as 5* but as stated previously could not fault. All Thompson images are exactly what you see when you get there and more. With so many pools, restaurants and bars the resort never feels busy which is lovely. The staff are a massive credit to Porto Bello Royal and in some ways made the holiday for us. They all work incredibly hard. Would 100% visit this resort again and will be recommending to all friends and family.More
