I had visited here for 2 weeks with my wife and 2 kids. Had a excellent time. The staff were excellent very polite and helpful. The bar staff were very nice to name a few, petros, fotis and giorgio. Giorgio and petros especially were great, they always provided a great service with a smile and were really good with my kids. Everyday they would warm up fresh milk for my baby which was very helpful. From my experience best customer service I have received while on vacation thanks to Giorgio. Would definitely come here again. 5 stars to the staff for an amazing holiday experience.

The food to start is shocking always cold, full of oil and the staff are really poor at understanding dietry requirements. Most nights all we could eat is overcooked veg and chips. The a le carte italian was shocking as well got a pizza with no cheese and vegetables which was pretty much dry bread with some raw veg on. Again the dietry requirements went right out the window, bringing two veggies we are with bacon bruchetta after arguing that they understand what that means.

All inclusice drinks are cheap and they stop serving at 12pm so you have to pay after if you want a drink. So not really allinclusive. Also the bar man in reception needs binning. You dont get any drinks in your room not even 1 bottle of water.

The rooms was a mess about the first night they didnt have any rooms for us so got put in a villa - which was waaaay better then the room we got moved too. The beds arent even double so you just fall down the middle of two single beds. They dont clean you room properly just whip over with a mop and tidy the bed. There was rarely any hot water. Bugs everywhere woodlice, mozzys, giant ants the lot.

Not a clue how theyve got away with that rating, its similar to a 2 star all inclusive in san antonio which hasnt been done up since the 80s just with a better view.

Dear Amy H,
Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts on the Kresten Royal Villas & Spa.
Firstly, we would like to inform you that food comes at the buffet on 90-92°C and we offer a big variety. However, taste is a matter of personal preference and most of the reviews we get for our food quality are very positive.
All inclusive is valid until 00:00 and this is really All-inclusive! We always kindly ask guests not to take their drinks in their rooms and we are glad that they respect this!
What comes as a surprise though, is to receive your comments about the personnel as we are very confident about our staff. We know that all of them are trying their best in order to provide a friendly and professional service to every guest.
Once again thank you for your review and we hope to welcome you again in our hotel.

I recently stayed at the Kresten Royal for 7 nights and I will definitely not be returning.
When we first arrived there was a group of 6 of us. The reception staff were easily flustered and the simple process took an inordinate amount of time. They also insist on keeping your passport overnight to take down details. Completely unnecessary but by this point I was too tired to complain.
After a long flight there was no options to get any food at midnight apart from a soggy barely edible cheese and ham wrap.
The rooms are basic and spartan. The beds are hard and not very comfy which a scratchy cheap bed cover laid over the top. The shower head was slightly broken to the pressure wasn’t great as most of the water leaked out.
Take your own beach towels as there is a €10 (refundable) deposit payable per towel that are paper thin and frayed. This also goes for the towels provided in the rooms.
The food reminds me of school lunches but with more choice. It’s edible but lukewarm. We only went to the Italian a la Carte which is essentially a set menu mainly consisting of pizza.
The staff are indifferent and having experienced the hospitality of the Far East it leaves a lot to be desired. The bartender in the reception area (Giorgios) is exceptionally rude and for someone who works in the hospitality industry lacks basic manners.
The only redeeming qualities of this establishment are that it’s clean, close proximity to tourist areas (€10 to Rodos and €13 to Faliraki) and there are lots of sun loungers so you don’t have to do a 6am sprint.
Don’t stay at this hotel unless you like a 3* resort for 5* prices.

Firstly, we would like to inform you that we replaced all beach and pool towels in March 2018 and they are freshly and new.
