The Imperial Palace certainly lives up to its name. A beautiful hotel and location with all the facilities you would expect. What makes it exceptional are the staff. From the maids to the restaurant staff nothing was to much trouble . I'd like to express a special thank you to Anna on reception, she had a smile from the day... More

The hotel architecture and the furniture are very nice. Beautiful gardens on the way to the pool and the private beach. The staff is nice as well and knowledgable about the available attractions in the surroundings. However the location of the power outlet in the rooms are not well studied, the supply of soap, shower gel and shampoo was not... More

It is a real 5 star hotel situated on a hill with a perfect view to the sea. It is at 5-10minutes walking distance from the center of the town. The rooms are large, well furnished and clean. The service is perfect. The breakfast is very good. The hotel has a nice garden and a good swimming pool, as well... More

We were here for 3 nights and had a suite in the old palace. The room was bare, comfortable but not worthy of its history or of 5 stars, and it so could be with some love and care. It is disappointing but the service was good friendly and attentive but really the hotel has become run down and needs... More

We have recently stayed in one of the Imperial Suites and had a wonderful time. The staff are attentive, without being intrusive, a rare skill. This is a five star hotel and food and drink is priced similarly to other five star hotels worldwide, definitely not inexpensive but as expected. The beach and pool area are a treat, accessed down...

Stunningly beautiful hotel and surroundings. Elegant, sumptuous, impeccable service. Had a room with a small balcony in the center of the hotel for a week. Traffic noise was significant, but the view made up for it. Breakfast was full and situated on a beautiful terrace. The walk down to the the pool and beach was gorgeous, but challenging. A golf...

We booked a room with a sea view, absolutely beautiful. However, we found the traffic noise intolerable. The staff very quickly found us an alternative room which we found very satisfactory. All staff very helpful and polite. Access to the lovely pool and beach area is challenging. Bar prices hideous. Breakfast on the terrace with the view is delightful. Good... More
