“Good Standard of Accomodation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

We booked 2 days before departure - a last minute decision to get away for half term. We had originally looked to go to the Hotel Alkion next door, but when we went to book, it was no longer available, so decided on here. The apartment's are spotlessly clean, and 'Gabbie' the host is very pleasant. The hotel seems to deal mostly with a couple of German tour operators, but we got ours was through Low Cost Holidays UK. I think we were the only English people staying at the time, but that didn't bother us. The rooms are huge and very well sound proofed; although the place was quiet at the end of May, you could not hear much noise around the hotel at all.
Kriopigi is on a steep hill, with the Gi Ga Mar Hotel about half way up. The views from our apartment of the sea and mountains were probably one of the best we've had.

Kriopigi is very quiet at the end of May. We understand that the season doesn't start properly until 1st June. So there is no little train running to take you up from the beach. The beach is quite narrow, with some sunbeds, but no umbrellas, although you do get shade from the trees later in the afternoon. There was only one small beach unit selling drinks, and that only started mid way through our week. Perhaps they do more after 1st June. All the taverna's, bars and shops are on the main road, about 800m to 1k up from the beach. There are about 7 or 8 taverna's, a couple of bars and two supermarkets. This was ok for us for 1 week, but I think you would have to travel further afield if you stayed for longer. Having said that, we ate out at a different taverna each night, and didn't have a bad meal. Taverna Nikos needs special mention though - we thought his place was the most authentic Greek food of them all...!

Altogether a nice resort, and Gi Ga Mar was in a good location. Not sure its somewhere we'd rush back to though, as even for us, it seemed just too quiet, as at times, it felt like we were the only tourists in the resort!!!

Room Tip: Get a room on the first floor if possible, as you'll then have amazing views of the sea! Also...
