“Relax vacation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2012

We were second time in Possidi Holidays. The most beautiful thing is the beach. I have traveled all Kassandra beaches and Possidi has the most beautiful one.
This is not definitely a five star hotel and you should be prepared for that. But it has all you need for calm vacation. Food is OK. It taste good, the one thing is missing in the breakfast no fruit.The dinner is good and you will not be hungry.
This time we were in the main building looking in the backyard. The room was wonderful.
Last year we were in the room upstairs on the hill and it was OK also. But this year the tourist who were in that room complained on bugs in the rooms.
I would definitely recommend this hotel for familiar people with children.

This is not a five star hotel. It pretends to be but couldn't be further from that. The rooms are worn out and musky, the mattresses are old and uncomfortable, the staff is indifferent, unhelpful, rude and clueless.

Worst of all though is that this hotel does not even offer the basics such as...clean water. The water in the shower smelled strongly of sewage. Not a hint of sewage but full on strong, rancid, unmistakable smell of raw sewage! So foul was the smell that it took over the whole room and even though we where in a dire need of a good shower, we dared not wash with this water in fear of contracting God knows what. This problem has been mentioned in reviews before, but when I had read them prior to visiting the hotel I had dismissed them as being perhaps too picky and difficult. If only I had taken that review under more consideration.

What was even worse was the receptionist's respond to such a problem. After displaying an indifferent and rude attitude when confronted with this issue, and failing to provide us with another room which would not have this problem, she stated that she believed this is a non issue since no one else in the hotel had complained about that and that it was our problem. When I asked to see the manager, the receptionist said that there was not any at the hotel ( no wonder !) and that she was in charge despite only being in charge of bookings. I have never- in- hotels over Greece and around the world - experienced such rude and impolite service as this one.

I would never stay in this hotel again, even if someone offered me a free stay. It is apparent that who ever is running this hotel ( the Head of Bookings perhaps since there was no manager to be found?) does not care for quality and hospitable services. They pretend to offer 5 star amenities but in reality this is a badly kept hotel that does not seem to care about its visitors. Even to get one star the hotel must at least offer clean water!! Never again!

We stayed at a very nice building separate from the main hotel. The rooms were very clean and quiet. The beach was so close and also had a great view from our balcony. The food was fine too. We had a great time!

We went there for four nights and get a main building room , very spacious, with carpet on the floor and a very nice bathroom. The fridge was broke, we tell them and we received a brand new one. All resort was very clean and well attended. The food was good and tasty but not a great variety. Even if you want to pay for a lunch there was just few dishes. Drinks was not cheap 4-5 euro for a beer or a coffee, 2 sunbeds with umbrella was 7 euro per day , but free at the pool. It is a good place for relaxing and to discovery Kassandra places. Best price/quality raport .

We have just enjoyed our 5th stay at Possidi Holidays since 2004. This is a family owned hotel located 1 hour south of the Thessaloniki Airport in the peninsula of Kassandra in the region of Chalkidiki. The grounds, pool area, beach area and rooms are maintained by a loyal staff that have been present for over 8 years. There are exceptional hiking and reasonable car rental excursion opportunities, in addition to tour company sponsored daily excursions to local sights. The family's own winery provides a special local touch to meals of fresh local seafood, vegetables and olives. The Staff can communicate in English, however, be forewarned, that there are no English tv channels or newspapers. The buffet breakfasts and dinners are fresh and more than enough. Definitively a strong recommendation if you truly want to "get away" to the clear waters of the Agean and great northern Greek culture and cuisine. Wi-fi is available.

Giving this hotel 5 stars is an insult to all decent 3+ stars hotels. It is in fact a budget-quality one, the corners are cut everywhere.

The good:
- beach in front of the hotel and the sea are very nice
- some of hilltop rooms have an excellent sea view

The bad:
- for several days, tap water in all parts of the hotel had a strong sweage smell. We dared to use it only for quick showers.
- the rooms are extremely basic, with cheap and worn hostel-like furniture
- the matresses on the beds were completely worn out, with springs sticking out all over the place
- the food choice was very limited, and most meals tasted terribly. After a couple of days, they completely stopped serving fresh fruits, we had to quarrel with staff to get any.
- breakfast leftovers were routinely served for dinner, and vice-versa
- the porter was very unpleasant and angry all the time
- there is no Internet access in the rooms, and it worked quite poorly at the reception and at the pool
- the elevator for the hiltop area broke down several times during our stay
- the garden-facing rooms in the main building are extremely noisy in the evenings, due to loud speakers in the children theatre

If not for possibly contaminated water, this hotel might be a good choice if you get it for a very very low price. However, because of health concerns, avoid it at all costs.

Room Tip: - Rooms on the garden side of the ground floor of the main building are dark and noisy, right next t...

Yes, the sea and the beach are wonderful: yet, you have to pay daily for using sunbeds and umbrellas and trust me, in the end of May the beach was everything else but clean.
The worse thing was the food. It was of very low quality, with cooked meats that we would never buy unless starving, small choice of salads and fruits, rarely fish again of bad quality, the menu is never diverse, for a week every second day you'll have the same food. Moreover: you'll have to pay for your bottle of water. To our surprise, for the first two days of our stay we had "fixed menu", i.e. no choice of food, as there were not enough tourists in the hotel for buffet in the end of May. Instead we had a three-course menu that was chosen by the restaurant manager and tasted like nothing. When we asked if we could order something else, they said there are some tavernas in the nearby villages. The taverna in the hotel was also closed in the evenings, eventhough everywhere it was written that it works also at night. Imagine that we had payed for these meals in advance, and we couldn't eat any of it.
Furthermore - forget about using decent internet, no internet in the rooms even if you wish to pay for it, the wi-fi in the lobby was almost not working, so you have to go to the pool outside and pray there will be good coverage. When we complained, they said they knew of the problem and advised us to just wait when it stops working and it will come back in a while...
Otherwise the hotel itself is not bed, but would never say it is a 5-star hotel.
Would not go back unless to see the beautiful area there...which you can see also in other parts of Chalkidiki, with better hotel conditions.
