I visited Sentido Port Royal Villas & Spa for one week with my girlfriend and had a very nice holiday.
When we arrived, we were greeted by reception staff with drinks. The reception area is very quiet and clean.
We were taken to our room on an electric buddy/cart and was shown around the resort by a friendly driver. Our room was 'Sea View', however, I did wish i paid extra for an upgraded room as this room view was half blocked by the rooms in front of ours! Apart from that, room was very spacious, modern and had very good facilities including a flat screen TV. Room also came with complimentary Fruits and Wine.
On our second day, we decided to upgrade to All Inclusive from Half Board which i believe was 25 euros p/day p/person at the time. I felt this was very reasonable as I spent 25 euros for a couple of rounds of drinks at the pool! However, all inclusive did stop at 11PM. Bars had a menu which showed what drinks were included on All Inclusive, I found it was everything I expected and wasn't disappointed at all. Everything from soft drinks in glass bottles (coke, fanta, sprite etc), to House Wines, Beers, and a lot of other beverages. Bar staff were very friendly, however, the Reception bar was usually ran by one man, and a women helping, which was not enough for around 10PM as it got very busy and he's very much a perfectionist and took 5-10 minutes per customer, making the cocktail look perfect (not a bad thing, just a bit annoying waiting for 30 minutes for a drink!)
Only ate at the Main restaurant during our week, because the Al A Carte restaurant didn't look like there were much choice, and it was very quite (doesn't suggest its that good!), but the main restaurant was very good. High range of foods changing daily, with efficient waiters who got you a table as soon as possible (During peak times). Again, I felt the restaurant was also slightly understaffed as I found myself trying to get there attention for more drinks for quite long times.
One improvement that could be made is making other chargeable facilities included with All Inclusive, such as WiFi access (even if they just gave us a free hour p/day!), Water sports or the gym (which i paid £5 for entry).
Kolympia is an interesting resort with a lot of shops/restaurants (ones with pictures of food on menus bear in mind), and supermarkets. Beach was extremely close, 30 second walk from hotel resort, and had a lot of sun beds available, although very outdated compared to pool side sun beds.
Overall, I had a very pleasant stay, very recommended for couples, however due to the little things (all inclusive stops at 11, wifi not included etc), It wouldn't stop me from visiting another hotel instead. However, i really do recommend this hotel.
