“Room was good, but...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2011

Front desk staff were a bit rude which one may find normal in a large hotel in Greece but I didn't think it was right.

For a hotel that to my understanding was advertised as an all inclusive hotel, you sure had to pay for a lot of things.For one the internet was not free, you had to leave your room to walk to the main reception desk to pay for however long you wanted to be online for, then go to a somewhat outdated computer that froze half the time to find out that your euro and change was gone in a couple of page uploads! Don't get me wrong I'm not one to care about internet usually but we happened to be coordinating with a hotel and a flight for our next destinations and needed to have internet during our stay here.

Food was all you can eat breakfast and dinner which was great but there wasn't a lot of variety throughout the length of our stay. In fact every day they served the same items which became a bit boring. You had to pay for any beverages you wanted including water!!

Location was not the greatest for anybody who is looking for nightlife but for anyone else (family with young kids, more mature couples, someone looking for relaxation, etc) this location is one of the better ones.

They have their own beach which was well kept. You have to pay to use the hotel's umbrellas but we had our own and chose to use a nice area very close by for free. I would suggest getting there at an early time because it gets quite busy later on in the day. About 200 meters away along the beach one can find a water sports tent set up with boats and other various crafts that you can rent. Watch out for jellyfish! Some big ones (size of a soccer ball) were spotted when we rented a pedal boat. If you are into private beaches with not a lot of access to the public this whole part of the peninsula is the place for you.

Room was pretty good with its own balcony and didn't take long to cool down with the Air Conditioning. It was located close to all the main amenities and I feel bad for whoever stayed on the upper side of the hotel because they had to walk a bit on an overpass bridge to get to the hotel's pool, breakfast/dinner area and private beach.

Finally the owners of the hotel are very arrogant people. The wife especially created quite a scene when she saw a mother pick up some food during the dinner and went outside the restaurant area nearby to feed her child that was more interested in running with the other kids. Not only did she use foul language in greek in front of a crowd consisting of families but she also began to chase the mother to take the food from her. I understand there are rules in place to prevent visitors from taking food back to their rooms in an all you can eat restaurant but common sense dictates that a different course of action should have been taken in this scenario...

Liked best: Beach
Liked least: Hotel

Room Tip: Ask to be in the complex closest to the beach

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2009

I went to chalkidiki after many years. Last years i preferred to go to hotels which offer two lunches at day, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. So i chose lagomandra after searching in the internet. Although i realized that in the area of Sarti there were very beautiful small hotels or rooms that have sea view and i adored them. About this hotel now, i can say that was something more that i expecting. At the internet was looked not so good as it was in reality. I was booked a room with sea view but you could see the sea in the backround very little. Only from the third floor you would have a good option of the sea. Also there was a road after the hotel , something that i didn't know. From the pictures was looked like a small road , but it was the main road.These two there are the disadvantages. But i knew that after the small road that i thought, there was other rooms also that were closer to the sea but don't have sea view, only garden view. That' s why i chose the rooms before the road. Still i prefer these rooms because the others were very very quite. The room inside was very good and have also view in the pool which is quite big. I am happy that chose this hotel because in the area around was the best for his price with things to do at night. Drink something in the pool,or they organized greek nights or latin nights. It was the first time that i met so so friendly staff , especialy at the restaurant. There was a very good climate among the guys that worked there, always with a smile in there mouth and very helpful with all the people. Be carefull the morning with the women that clean the rooms.You must definately put outside the door the card do not disturb , because two times they came inside in about 9p.m and we were in the room. They go out of course immediately. The last thing that you must definately know is that the hotel is full of famillies with little children or younger.I do not recomend this hotel in young people or couples for the reason that they will listen all the time babies that crying especially in the restaurant! The was a variety in the food.But generally there is a quite good hotel for having a relaxing vacation.
