We were 2 families with 6 toddlers, not easy at all to find a good place to suits for a all week... To be honest, I reserved this vacation with lots of doubts and fears as our little daughter (4 years old) allergic in a life-threatening level to nuts and peanuts. My skepticism gone the moment I met Manolis the... More

We just returned from a relaxing vacation at Athina palace. To be honest, it's not really 5 star hotel regarding the room facilities etz. But -frankly, the overall ambience makes the place to be spacial and most welcoming and gives a good feeling of a real relaxation. The restaurant is great and most of the stuff are great hosts.

Just stayed at Athina Palace for one week at the start of august and had a great time. Really pleased with the hotel and facilities. We're a family of 4 and although we were well self contained there were plenty of things for kids and grown ups to do. Food, especially variety was excellent. There were only a few English... More

Perfect honey moon with my husband. Personal from hotel were very sympathic, food delicious (with a lot of choice with the buffet) and drinks (the Mojito cocktail is very delicious - better than in Paris - made by Giannis and Emmanouela on the bar), I advise you to taste it.

Fantastic stay at Athina Palace. Had a problem with our first room as balcony was tiny and completely overlooked by next door. Also had very noisy air conditioning unit which made it hard to sleep. But asked to change rooms and Fanny at guest relations was fantastic and moved us to an amazing room (333) which had a huge balcony... More

Fabulous! A great resort for a week's stay. Keeping a 15 year old teenage boy happy minus the X-Box is quite something. We pushed the boat out and booked the so called VIP suite. Room 806. Definitely the "wow" factor. We ate in the Al a Carte restaurant which is well worth it every night. Fantastic service from Debby, Manolis... More

Me and my wife were looking for a week away with nice views and a chance to chill by the pool. Mission accomplished! The views from our room and the lovely 'relax pool' were exactly as you'd expect them to be and even though we went during the school holidays, the pool was, on the whole, quiet and relaxing! The...

My Dad booked this hotel for a special family holiday to celebrate his and my Mum's 30th wedding anniversary, there were 6 of us in total. The hotel was clean, tidy and organised and the staff at the Reception were very helpful and accommodating. They even provided my Mum and Dad with a bottle of champagne to celebrate their anniversary.... More

This was the only resort which had a few vacancies left. I can now see why. Extra bed - was broken. Room - definitely NOT 5 stars - old and noisy toilets, no shelves in the shower small "double" bed, and they call it "superior". I am 3 month pregnant, with 2 small kids and they let us climb 200...
