Booked as a last minute break. Hotel is 4 stars. We asked for garden view, we actually got to view the sea 😍. We booked half board. Breakfast was plentiful, Dinner lots of choice every night, although could of been hotter, most nights food was only lukewarm. Staff very friendly. Guests on the other hand seemed to think as they were on holiday they did not need to socially distance. Room was cleaned daily, had kettle in room which was a bonus. I would recommend hiring a car this way you get to see nicer beaches than the one by the hotel, although only a short stroll away. Definitely come back again.
I have been visiting the area for many years. This is truly the best hotel I have ever stayed. The staff are absolutely amazing and extremely friendly. They couldn't do enough to make us feel at home. The rooms are very clean and the cleaning / housekeeping team have kept the standards to the best. Anna at her team were awesome. We asked for extra towels and they brought them to us in minutes. Every morning we were greeting with smiles from all the hotel staff. Mr Nikos and Mrs Ioanna at the buffet bar provided us with fresh fruit, food, and drinks. To all the staff at the hotel, a big THANK YOU for making our stay so enjoyable. Def, see you next year.

It is our second year in Philoxenia. We really enjoyed everything - the beach, the food and the service. We liked it so much that even extended our stay by 2 more nights. We have been in challenging circumstances more than once and the Philoxenia team and especially the general manager helped us a lot. The biggest asset of the hotel is the staff - they are always happy to help and have a smile on their face regardless of the circumstances. Philoxenia team I thank you for everything from the bottom of my heart. We hope that you will stay healthy and safe and we will see you again next year. With appreciation and best wishes, Slaveja, Ema and Ivan from Sofia.
If you are looking for a clean, well run, friendly hotel to relax, unwind and not do much, this is certainly one to consider. We visited for a week at the end of October. From check-in to check-out it is difficult to find fault with the staff. All were friendly, helpful and anxious to make the stay as good as possible. The rooms and in fact all of the facilities were very clean. The staff worked hard to keep the site tidy, even down to the almost constant presence of a net to fish insects, etc. out of the swimming pool. The rooms were kept very clean. It is one of the few hotels that I have been to where the shower enclosure did not leak anywhere. As it was the end of the season, the hotel was far from full, so our very positive experience was helped because the facilities were not full by any means. There was no problem getting a seat at the bar or next to the pool. This might not be true in the summer One of the drawbacks of going when we did was many of the local shops, bars etc. were closed or at least on short hours. One particular person to mention ws Nikos in the Well-being centre (fitness suite). He was welcoming, friendly and had a great sense of humour. We enjoyed the sauna and hammam (steam room) which we visited most days. The fitness room looked small, but it seemed to be used a few times. Eleni was also excellent giving accurate and helpful advice on places to see locally and how to use the bus service. The other major attraction of the hotel is that it is truly a very short walk (150m) to the beach. Again, at the end of the season the beach was quiet. We had a room in "D-Block". Our room did not overlook the pool so we were not allowed to use it. This was not a problem for us as the main pool was fine. With the beach so close by we had no real need for it. As we went "all inclusive" WiFi was a part of the package and it worked well for us. The food was good with a reasonable choice. If I was to make one minor comment it would be that the food is not kept hot, but very warm. It is therefore worth taking small portions and filling up. Some of the soups were very good. If I want another holiday of this type in the future, this hotel would be high on my list. It helps that we also like cats as there are a number of local felines anxious to beg food.…
