Had a fantastic holiday at this hotel. We travelled 2 adults and an 8 year old at the end of August. Our room was modern, small, comfy beds, towels/room cleaned every day and you couldn't hear your neighbours. The main pool was good - salt became a little bit of problem towards the end as it aggravated my sons eyes an eczema (but didn't spoil anything).
Food was lovely with plenty of choice in the main restaurant. We visited the Italian Restaurant twice and the Greek Restaurant 3 times - you must try the gyros pittas they are to die for. The beach bar served snacks at lunch time which were ok (we only liked the toasties). We found plenty of choice for breakfast (my partners favourite) and my son loved the pancakes which were made fresh in front of you.
The Beach is lovely, sandy and the sea is very clear. The pedaloes are an added bonus and we must have used these 5/6 times over the 11 days we were there. The best feature for us was the water park which has approx 8 slides - my son loved these. The water park is literally less than 5 minutes walk from the hotel and we went most days and stayed a couple of hours (it is too small to spend a full day there). There was always sun chairs available and you never had to queue very long for a ride.
The reason why I have not given 5 stars is mainly due to the lack of entertainment on an evening. I have never been to a hotel where the majority of guests just sit and play cards. The theatre at the back of the hotel is mainly geared for very young children - we went twice but it was not our cup of tea. There are a couple of TV's in the reception/bar area but these were only showing German channels.
We walked a couple of times into Kardamena which took quite a while (approx 45 mins) - this is worth a visit with a good selection of bars & restaurants. We had a few drinks in the Cross Roads Bar & Stone Roses Bar. Reception will also call you a taxi (9 euros each way) or there is a bus (which we did not use).
Highly recommend and thank you Atlantica Porto Bello Beach for a fabulous holiday.
