We had a great time in this nice hotel! Had a room with the sea view and it was amazing! Very clean, obviously underwent a reconstruction not long ago. Very friendly and caring staff, breakfast with variety of fresh fruit and oranges to squeeze your own fresh juice included! A/C was included but we never used it, opening the windows was just fine. Agios Nicolaos beach is just down from the hotel, very nice, shallow water, not too crowded, net for beach volleyball and sometimes waves big enough to surf! Arkasa village is just a short walk away, lots of tavernas, don't miss watching the sunset from Stema bar! The windsurfing paradise in Afiartis is just a 10 minute drive over the hill. Karpathos offers many beautifull beaches, mountain villages, friendly people and most of all isn't spoiled by massive crowds of tourists. It's also very clean, you won't see any garbage anywhere and you can even fill waterbottles with springwater from the tap by the road in many places.

Great and excellent place to have some rest in Karpathos! Service and rooms are perfect. Lovely support from Despina, at the reception. Me, Martina & Elia were very happy and ready to come back for sure! Thanks for everything.

We’ve stayed there for a week and I must say it’s one of the best hotels I’ve been to in Greece. The apartments were very nice and clean. Good air condition in every room. It’s very close from the beach, like 100m. The only disadvantages were poor WiFi signal and breakfasts. We were off season, so the hotel restaurant wasn’t working and breakfasts were served by really close beach restaurant with a wonderful see view. Well, it was their only advantage. The food was bad with almost no variety. However, I strongly recommend this hotel!

Appartment has 2 big rooms separated with the door, sea view, 2x AC, fully equiped kitchen. The equipment looks pretty new, everithing is very clean, towels changing every day. The bed in bedroom is spacious, but a little hard. In the other room which is also a kitchen and a living room are 2 sofas which can be extended into beds, but this is a very unconfortable hard bed where is impossible to sleep the whole week for an adult person. I dont understand why they put 2 sofas in that room instead of 1 real bed. Regarding m2 the app is big enough for 5 people, but only two can sleep well. Location is nice, 100m from beautiful beach where you can find beach bar, volleyball playground, sunbeds and umbrellas. They also serve breakfast at this beach bar. The breakfast was really a disappointment, every day the same 5 things. Old bread, boiled eggs, plastic cheese, salami, butter. Wifi worked well at the appartment and also at the lobby and pool. The pool is very beautiful, not many people there.

Perfect since the approach, small but not too much, quite and calm, studios perfectly fitting for 2 adults and a child. Maybe also for more. Pool, if you want the perfect end of the day. A sunset you'll never forget. No useless services, the necessary ones in a perfect way. A Place to be. A vous mes amis.

We stayed at the hotel in end of August to beginning of September. The hotel is only 2 minutes walk from the beach something very convenient but also walking distance from supermarkets and car rentals. It has a large and also very clean swimming pool and the rooms are very spacious modern and clean. Staff was very helpful with everything and pleasant taking time to answer all our informational questions. Big thanks to Elias the manager for everything! Highly recommended and we will be back!

This place was not for us. Had the air of a down at heel motel. To be fair, they did refund all our money, when they only had to refund 50%. They definitely meant well, but the whole place had a very tired, creaky feel. The room was clean, but smelt extremely sweet, like intense pear drops. It had air con pipes dangling through the window and wonkey lampshades that had seen better days. The kitchen had a huge number of very dark cupboards, but virtually nothing in any of them. The bed was huge, but rock hard and again surrounded by huge dark cupboards. It’s located on the windy side of the island and the surroundings are pretty barren. The photos of the hotel are very, very flattering and in my view bound to lead to more disappointed clients in the future.

We stayed at the Royal Resort Hotel for 6 nights in early September. The rooms are spacious, clean, and have more than enough storage space. The bathroom is big and modern. The rooms also contain a kitchenette with enough cooking utensils and decent size fridge. The view from our rooms (3 in total) was amazing and the pool was perfect. One of the things we valued the most was the customer service the owners provided. Elias, Sophia, and Adreas made us feel like family. They did everytbing they could to make our stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. Elias went to the extent of helping us find accomodation elsewhere when we decided to stay longer in Karpathos and Royal Beach Resort was fully booked. We ended up returning to Royal Beach Resort for 3 more nights 4 days later as the hotel we moved to in the city had lower standards. This resort is walking distance to a beautiful beach as well as 2 mini markets. There are some very nice tavernas close by too. A car is needed to go to the city and to visit all the other magnificent beaches in Karpathos. If we return to Karpothos we will definately stay here again. Big thankyou to Elias, Sofia, Adreas, and the reaming staff.

For visitors, who like to stay in a quiet place with nice rooms its the ideal place. Very nice staff, big pool and a nice beach nearby. Sunsets are great, motorbike rental is nearby and parking no problem at all. I will definitely come back. Arkassa is perfect to explore the Island with a bike or car, petrol station just outside town very cosy to fill your tank in the morning and travel all day long.

We were there in four. The rooms are very nice and big. The hotel is new and swimming pool is luxurious. Down the beach is very beautiful as well. The owners are speaking a very good English (they lived in the US). In summary, everything just perfect. I also find Arkassa a perfect place for the windsurfing people, who are practicing in Chicken/Gun bay (few kilometres away)
