We stayed here at the end of June/start of July in a party of 4. The outside of the hotel and the reception areas look really impressive. The rooms however are a mixed bag. My girlfriend and myself were allocated a very nice room with a great sea view and were very happy, the other couple that we were with had to change rooms twice as their allocated rooms were at the very bottom on the hotel and were not good. The decoration was old and shabby and the air conditioning did not work. However the hotel staff were very helpful however and would not rest until they were satisfied.
The pool areas were great, we particularly loved the top pool with wooden sunbeds and close to the bar! All the drinks seemed to be great quality, the beer especially was excellent, we have been on many all inclusive holidays in the past and have found the beer to be watered down, but that was not the case here.
The food was good and was plentiful, however after around 4 days it started to get a little boring, which you would expect, but again you could not knock the quality of the food or the service.
During our stay, there didn't seem to be many British people staying in the hotel as we believe it was out of the school season, there were large groups of mainly Russians and Germans. This may be different however during the school holidays.
Hersonissos is quite a walk from the hotel. The main problem being that on the way back you have to climb a large hill. Either in the scorching heat of the day or after you have had one too many in the town this can be tiring. A taxi however is only 7 euros so its pretty cheap!
Koutouloufari is a small village to the rear of the hotel and was only around a 5 minute walk away. There are a few bars and some great restaurants there, so its well worth the visit.
All in all, we would return to Hersonissos, but i don't think we would return to The Imperial, it was a very nice hotel, but for the money we paid i think that there are better hotels for price.
