Leaving my review for the taverna because it does not have it's own review site. The taverna is at the rear of the apartments/hotel and faces the sea at the side of Ammoudi beach. It is a very nice setting to enjoy either a drink or a meal, the outside terrace is small but clean and there are sunbeds for... More

this is what it is.... Very clean and comfortable apartments above a family run taverna which is on the beach. Free sunbeds just steps from the taverna on the promenade where you can dip in and out of the sea. The taverna is visited by many local families which we have always found to be very friendly. Just returned from... More

Nice hotel, however very crowded and no privacy at all. Local snack bar and public area for local people, so no space really for hotel guests. We had a superior room with side seaview. Balcony above scooter parking and 10 meters to tennis court next door. We expected a more private and peaceful hotel, with 2 weeks booked we decided... More

Polydoros has the best location in Agios Nikolaos. I know it for sure because I have stayed in the only other resort that it is by the waves just beside this one (the cost was 6 times more and the beach was really tiny). At Polydoros the waves are only 10 meters distance from our rooms and 3 meters from... More

What a welcome surprise after Athens and Iraklio, to find such a nice new property at a good price! 6 rooms in this family-owned property, done up nicely both inside and out. The verandas over the bay step down to a private access to the water, and are cooled by the breeze as well as lovely shade plantings. It's a... More

We stayed in the Polydoros over New Year with my two teenage daughters staying in two apartment rooms. Compared to other hotels we found along the coast, this is a rare gem. Its small, family owned and right on the water adjacent to one of three beaches in the town but with its own semi-private frontage. You can swim directly... More

My partner and I arrived at this hotel, and the owner and his mother gave us the warmest welcome ever! Lovely people! We had a large marble bathroom, and the rest of the accommodation was very spacious, if the beds are a little too hard for me - however my other half slept like a log!! Nice balcony overlooking the... More

We have stayed in this property before, we liked it so much we booked again for this year and again for next year. The apartments are roomy, with coffee maker, kettle, microwave, TV, good bathroom, lovely balconies especially the one at the front with a full sea view. The owners are friendly. The food in the small snack bar is... More

What an absolute gem...in a brilliant position right on the water. Far enough out of town to feel secluded , but in reality an easy walk of 30 mins along the waterfront. If your'e staying in Ag. Nik....dont go anywhere else. The family who own and run hotel are delightful, helpful and the breakfast is fantastic.
