We stayed at the Palatino Hotel in September 2015 and the room was definitely a 2 star, I have stayed in better hostels, for which I paid well over half the price. The pool, sunbeds and café/bar area are fine. The people are very friendly. When we arrived we asked if there was a safe in the room, to which... More

Stayed at the Palatino again for a week in September, it is a perfect place to stay in Lixouri, I have always found all of the staff to be friendly and helpful. Special mentions to Irini and Marina. The rooms are basic, but comfortable, and very clean, our towels were changed every day. Pool area is large and never feels... More

This Hotel was really welcoming and very friendly. The breakfast was a very excellent choice that i really enjoyed. The hotel was very clean and very very friendly. It was just a 5 min walk from centre which was full of great little restaurants and a ferry that went every half an hour to Agastoli. All in all i would... More

I spent 7 nights at this hotel and found it very friendly and relaxing. Staff are great and the breakfast are very nice with a great choice. It is on the outskirts of the town but it's only a 10 minute walk in to town, however it's also up hill all the way back to the Hotel, which if you... More

I travelled with my 2 children (aged 7 & 9) and we stayed in a studio. Other family members in the main hotel. As a cheap holiday we knew it was going to be basic and yes the studios do need updating! But everything was clean and functional. We found the hotel staff to be very helpful. They work very...

Having read all the previous reviews i find it hard to see why the Palatino is rated so highly. It has some good points like the elevated position which gives wonderful views across the bay. The pool scene is good as there is a plentiful amount of sunbeds which are always available. The food and drink at the pool bar... More

After reading all the reviews about this hotel as a family of 5 we decided to try it out as a cheaper alternative to our normal holidays in 4 and 5 star accomodation. Reading the other reviews I feel like we stayed at a different hotel. Not many of the staff even smiled at us let alone made us feel... More

Spent two weeks with my family in a studio. Having read other reviews I am led to believe the rooms upstairs must be different. We had no safe, room very dated with some loose electric sockets. Self catering facilities located outside toilet door and behind two cupboard doors. Impossible to prepare snack etc. Fortunately for us we didn't need to,... More

Rooms are comfortable and air con and safes are provided free of charge. The pool area is lovely and the bar provides very reasonably priced food and drinks. The hotel... More

My friend and I spent a week here. We weren't sure what to expect but we were very pleasantly surprised! The hotel is family run and they all work very hard. Maria who ran the pool bar was lovely and everyone was very friendly. The bedrooms were clean with a balcony, fridge and safe. Air con is free. Bathroom is... More
