What a delightful hotel! We stayed here for a week in July and it was great. makis is committed to ensuring that all his guests have a good holiday and although initially I thought our assigned room was small it was actually pefect. Very cool and also had air conditioning. Being able to use the facilities of the 5 Star... More

We have just returned from our 2 week stay at the Athina through Thomas Cook. For £550 for a fortnight including flights in July it's hard to fault! We loved the holiday, and Makis was a very welcoming host. He remembers everyone's names and his family are also charming (special mention for his lovely Mum!). When we arrived, we were... More

We stayed for a week as a part of a package holiday courtesy of the nice people at Easyjet. Its slightly out of Sami and to be honest, if you are driving its a little difficult to find and not well signposted. The hotel is clean with a large breakfast room, two terraces and a bar. The rooms that we... More

Friendly, polite and cooperative but in the same time old hotel, mix and match, terrible bathrooms, no safety (windows do not close) poor breakfast. The owner also owns the next door 'five star; hotel and when he sees that you are not happy with Athina, proposes a 'bargain' price and sends you to the next door one. Athina is good,... More

Athina Beach is about as good as it gets for the money. It's smart, clean, comfortable and well-equipped plus the views across the Ionian are first class. As a bonus you can use the pools at the neighbouring – and much more expensive – Ionian Emerald for free. But what you'll really notice is the length owner Makis goes to... More

I had the pleasure to spend my 1st trip to this beautiful island at this hotel. It's a lovely and genuine family ran place. Markis and his family really made our stay great. Nothing was never too much to ask and he made a real effort to remember our names and introduce guests to one another. The hotel is situated... More

The breakfasts were perfectly adequate and the room was comfortable. Makis , family and staff are very sociable and the hospitality was wonderful. An added bonus was the ability to use the... More

I am 26 yo and traveled with my girlfriend. I was slightly cautious after booking athina beach on good-value a last-minute deal. After out transfer (by taxi~30 minutes - which the hotel organised for us - alot cheaper than it would have been) we arrived.
