If you are looking for a stay with a gym then it has to be here. New equipment, plenty of it and aircon. Follow it with the best capacino on the island by the pool and wonderful views and a swim. I haven't stayed at the hotel, this review is for the gym only. You can go for the day... More

short version: Ideal for a chilled holiday around the pool, stay in a villa to get the most out of this as I think the experience is very different in a room but be aware that the trade-off of staying here is that there is very little in town except people chugging fishbowls and getting VD (play safe kids!) -...

We are currently in a 2 bed Presidential Villa - 4 adults - WIFI has been superb not once collapsed and has been super high speed (free) In all honesty I think this is a place to stay if you are in a villa rather than a standard room. ALL Villas have heir own pool and are a very decent... More

Really lovely villa 401 When we arrived it felt a bit exposed being on the corner however there were so few people passing by it never bothered us at all. The villa is very modern and was spotlessly clean. There is air conditioning and a hot water booster if you need it. The shower however didn't have a wall hanger... More

I read a lot of good reviews for this place, boy was I surprised when I got here. I'm guessing that maybe most of the reviews are for the villas because the standard accommodation is decidedly underwhelming. The good: *The staff are excellent all round, Anthony in the restaurant, Sonia@breakfast, Athena and many others *The swimming pool *The gym *The... More

This was our 3rd visit to the Royal Heights and we are already planning our next visit. As returning guests the only change from our previous stays was new staff, although still several of the original ones were still there ( and remembered us which is always a nice touch ). Please see below: Good points: * Staff were superb,... More

The hotel is very far from shore and can not be reached on foot . Breakfast is bad . The food is not fresh and delicious . I ordered a suite and gave it to someone else by mistake . I was given a regular room instead , without any compensation

I always judge how good a holiday is by how sad I am to leave. We didn't want to go home and are already planning to return. We stayed half board in a presidential 2 bed Vila, (with private pool) from the 13th of August for 2 weeks. As many other reviews have stated, the resort is peaceful and kept... More

Get a presidential suite, relax and chill poolside. If you need anything the staff are brilliant. There's plenty of supermarkets in the new town to stock up the fridge. Always eat in the old town if dining out. Kalesma, toto lotto, San Giorgio and petrinos are amazing. This is a great hotel and a lovely part of the world .... More
