“You won't get better than this in Greece for the money you pay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2010

We have visited Nostos a number of times over the last few years, despite our golden rule of never going anywhere twice. I confess we return to Greece to visit family every year, but without doubt this has been the best value hotel that we have found in all the years we have been visiting. Our family actually live an hours drive from this hotel, testiment to the quality and service that that you experience when staying here. (Trust me, an hours drive on the greek roads with a 6 month old is no fun)

The hotel is immaculate, the rooms and public areas are cleaned daily, the gardens are well kept and the pool area is well stocked with sun beds. The bar is well priced with a reasonable range of food. The staff are friendly and helpful, but not intrusive. The rooms have improved almost every year that we have visited. There is an indoor pool just incase the weather lets you down, a gym and games areas, all fitted out to a high standard. Looking back at some of the negative comments, all I can say is this is not a 5 star hotel, it doesn't pretent to be and you don't pay anywhere near 5 star rates. It is, in my view at the top end of the 3 star range, creeping into 4 star and well worth a visit if a relaxing, trouble free holiday is what you are looking for.

We will continue to use this hotel in the future

We stayed at the Nostos last week, and what a fantasic Hotel, it has had its rooms, refubished over the winter, Rooms are 1st Class, fridge, hairdryers, flatscreen TV, air con (extra cost). We had a seaview with balcony, a truely wonderful hotel, Helen, Family and staff look after you so well and nothing is too much trouble. The Nostos is so clean, sheets are changed twice a week, towels three times. Wednesday Night is Fish Meza which we throughly enjoyed, and Sunday BBQ eat as much as you like which was delicious. Breakfast is basic but if you want cooked breakfast that is no problem, but costs extra. We found that the meals and drinks were very good and cost less than restaurants outside.

Would recommend the restaurants in Afitos about 20 min walk, but well worth the walk. Kaletha is OK, but Afitos is much nicer.

The Beds are fantasic, can't remember the last time I slept so well, and not waking up with any aches or pains.

Wonderful Swimming pool, sunloungers and sunshades enough for all who stay, although there are still the usual people who have the need to put their towels out each day. There is also an indoor pool, Gym, TV Lounge, and internet connection 1 euro per hour.

Overall our holiday was excellent and would definately recommend you take your holiday there.

Thank you Helen , Family & Staff for a wonderful Holiday. Jane and John

We stayed at the Nostos first week in october great week ,staff , food ,weather great. Regards not being child friendly if you go in Term time you cant expect the hotel to be full of children they should be in school surley!! We found the rooms great and did not need fly spray or plugs.Yes the rooms do need a bit of an upgrade but that did not deter from great facilities and great service.Thank you Helen ,Makis and family for a great holiday and the help given my husband who uses a wheelchair.You are certainly people friendly see you next year.

Everything was superb. The staff were sublime and were very friendly and welcoming throughout our stay! My friend and I particularly enjoyed the food, especially the awesome all you can eat bbq! We have travelled in quite a few different places in the vacinity of Greece and we usually stay at three star hotels, but this one was well up there with the best ones and we were suprised it was only a three star! The area of Halkidiki was beautiful and this hotel was in a nice location to all the enjoyable places on the peninsula. We were on a budjet and staying at the Nostos really helped us to keep within that as the food and drink was cheap and good quality compared to a lot of the resturants nearby. As i could say, it was floorless!

We have just returned from 2 fantastic weeks completely regenerated and ready for work again. I have looked at some of the more recent reviews and think some things should be put in perspective. The steps to the beach can only be seen as a bonus. With all the other hotels on the cliff you have no choice but to walk in to Kalathia and down a steep and some times busy road to the beach. The fact that the hotel cut a path and put steps down to the beach is amazing customer service. I have included a picture of the Steps as I think it is a lovely walk down to the beach, you can always use the road to come back. Having a fridge in a small and friendly hotel is a welcome surprise but is obviously for snacks and drinks, to attempt to prepare full family meals in the room is inappropriate and I dare say unhygienic. The food and drink prices at the Nostos are among the best value in the area. The food is the best you can get in any hotel, restaurant or home in Halkidiki. The Fish meza and barbeque nights were great value and nice way to end the holiday as they were always before a flight day. The cleanliness of the hotel has been mentioned in every review and I will just agree here. I found the staff friendly and very attentive to the guests needs with out being intrusive. I agree this hotel does not have the facilities of larger hotels for the younger child and teenager and so don't not attract many families. But this is a small and friendly hotel and the lack of teenagers is an attraction for me not a minus. The sort of guest this hotel attracts are normally couples with out children and most have something to add to the holiday. Although no raves went on there was always plenty of laughter at the bar and plenty of smiles in the restaurant and pool. I can thoroughly recommend it. We had a week in Dubai in June and it wasn’t a scratch on this holiday as regards to fun and relaxation.

Rooms were clean and adequate, although the shower rooms definitely need updating with new tiles and shower rails, which were rusty. Could do with renewing towels as they were grey not white. Take fly spray,swatter and plug in bug killers,as there are lots of little flies in the bathrooms/bedrooms.Although the hotel provide a fridge and kettle,we were asked not to eat in the rooms as it is a hotel not self catering! knowing full well other people staying in the hotel were eating food they had prepared in their rooms on their balconies overlooking the pool and bar. We were the only people with children in the hotel apart from the owners, so felt this was not a family friendly approach.Barbecue night was good value for money, plenty to eat but lacked any atmosphere from the owners! No music or interaction. The beach acessed from the hotel is dissapointing after the long walk down via the 200 plus steep rickety steps with little fencing! is full of litter. Hotel location was ok, just a five minute walk to Kalithea with plenty of places to eat and drink and shop or a 20 minute walk 5 minute taxi ride (5 euros) to Afitos which was more tradtional greek village but eating out was cheaper.Haris is a good night out and quite cheap, always get a free carafe of wine or glass of ouzo and sometimes pudding! Book you car hire before you go as it is generally quite expensive, the our Tour operator Thomsons was the highest! we managed to do a cash deal with National in Kalithea for 150 euros for 7 days with full insurance. Any trips like the market or boat trip you are better doing off your own back as the organised trips with Thomsons are so expensive or often cancelled. In our opinion, this hotel is more suited to couples and more mature holidaymakers
