“Wonderful beachside position”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

A wonderful position on a most glorious beach with clear blue sea. Some stunning sunsets if you have a west facing room. Staff were helpful and friendly. Food was below par for 5 stars. Sunbeds on 'private beach' should be free. A nice quiet place to unwind; though a car is recommended to explore a little further afield.

Room Tip: Choose west facing room in main hotel to view spectacular sunsets

Nice modern hotel with nice beach and nice views of the Olymp mountain... but thats all. Mind the fact, that you will stay in the real middle of nothing. The closect small village is approx. 4km far away so if you want to buy anything (except hotel bar and restaurant) you have to walk far away or rent a car. The beach is very nice, except of one strange thing, that you have to pay for the sunbed and umrella (in "private" hotel beach!!!). Rooms were nice, staff friendly. I have not noticed any problem with the food - we stayed at the end of high season, so there were rich selection of food (not very repetitive) and even with several culinary shows. 99% of the guests are speaking russian.

Problems:

- Not good location - the western side of Kassandra peninsula is empty.
- Smelling water (sulphur??)
- Terrible wifi connection
- Still broken lift to the upper hill
- You have to pay for the using of hotel beach
- Possible not rich variety of the food, when staying out of season.

Plus:

- Nice sunsets :-)

Stayed in September 2011 - Selected Nov. 2011 as the closest possible option.

We ware in hotel on 23.August 2012 and have a nice time there. Food was very good with vegetables, sweets and fruit variety. We want there by car and so we look all the beaches on Kassandra. Possidi Holidays beach is one from the nicest and spaciest of them. Clean also. Hotel stuff is frendly. Room 104 has litle smell, maybe some problem with suwer. Old TV but we did not mind it. Hotel have elevator that you use for climbing to the rooms on hill. Beautiful view is from the top of the hill. If we put ewerything together hotel stands for money we spent.

Room Tip: dont take room number 104.

The location of the hotel is fine.the stuff is very friendly.the rooms are ok....but someone faces a lot of problems during the vacation in the hotel...the water in the room was horrible and it was stinking,not even for hand washing.after complaining they tried and it was a little bit better.
the breakfast buffet had a lot of things,but they did taste awful.there was nothing that it was eatable.the breakfast was till 10:30,but at least twice,they were taking foods away from 10:15...
the pool was closing at 19:00 (sorry but at that time it is still "noon" in Greece).you had to pay deposit for the beach towels and you should keep them at least 2 days.you should pay for hotel's sunbeds on the beach....you had to pay a deposit for the safe box.the hotel is TOO expensive for what it is offering to the guest....

1.There is a mini bar, but empty;
2. You have to pay a deposit for towels and safe deposit box;
3. The food in the restaurant is horrible;
4. No room service after 10 am;
5. Terrible overall service;
6. The people that stay in the hotel are mainly very poor people from Bulgaria and Roumania or Russians;
7. Very uncomfortable beds;
8. No parking;
10. Poor internet connection;
11. You have to pay for sunbeds and umbrella at the beach;
12. Selfservice at the beach.

What can I say, this is not a 5 star hotel. You could have better hotel in this reagion for much lower rates and better service.

I come back to Possidi this summer and confirm that Possidi Holidays is perfect summer destination.

Most beautiful about this place is clear sea, beach with excellent conditions for relaxing vacation and very nice surroundings. Kassandra is very nice peace of earth with a lot of forests , green fields, long sandy beaches and view to Olympus that could give you sunsets in different colors every evening (depending on weather conditions).

Hotel beach is maintained well, it cost 7 € for umbrella and 2 sun beds, and hotel provides beach towels. It is very clean and not too much crowded except for weekend days when there you could find a lot of visitors. If you do not like to walk a long distance in shallow water to reach sea with depth suitable for swimming , this is good for you, 5 m from the coast water is deep and good for swimming.
This year I saw fishes that jump out from water when surface is calm and there is no crowd.
There is absolutely no undersea vegetation as far as average person could swim out and it is very convenient, also there was no ships, boats etc. to disturb swimmers.
Personal in Beach Bar and Poll Bar are very polite and helpful.

Our room was Family room in main building and it was big enough for four persons , our balcony was big and give us direct view to the beach , so it was like we are spending all day at the sea.
Cleaning and changing of sheets and towels are regular and detailed. All entertainment areas of hotel is very clean and one could notice everyday efforts to keep it in good condition.

Sidewalks are clean , planed and well elevated . For those who would like to avid bumps, jumps and stairs I have to say that this is perfect and all areas of hotel , bars , pool , beach and restaurant are easy accessible.

Regarding a restaurant and food I find it to be improved comparing to last year. Breakfast is good and you could find something for every taste. For dinner you could find tasty dishes with salads, different offer of meats and vegetables. I find that offer of fish for the dinner should be better. Sweet things , cakes and creams was very good and me and my children did enjoyed in it.

At last, but not least important , I have to say that Reception personal are polite and efficient. I have made reservation with some special requests and everything was fulfilled with no problem. Miss. Sofia who is handling reservations responds fast at e-mails and there was no problem to arrange our stay, she is also very kind and helpful at the desk.
What could be seen in Possidi Holidays is effort of all team to make guests stay comfortable and pleasant and me, my husband and our two kids really have a nice time.
