It is rare to get a beautiful setting and very, very good food combined with genuinely high quality service. Special mention to the many staff who made it so much fun for our multi-generation family group of 21 people! Katerina at Guest Relations; Fotina at Flavors - a legend, making our huge group (sometimes together, sometimes in small groups) had a brilliant experience at every meal; Dimitris 1 and Dimitris 2, Anastasia, Chrysa, Christos and Thomas all at Flavors were delightful, always happy to help and to keep our rosé topped up!; Matilda, Christina, Elena and Maria from Helios and the beach were endlessly kind and helped organise drinks and seating regularly for our large group; Angelino at Frescos was great Soritos at the main pool also great; Jenni at Pilates was so welcoming to our little niece Daisy who joined in several days. And lastly DJ Lazarus for the final night White Disco which topped off a hilarious week. Thanks all.…
A wonderful 10 days with our large family, we were very well looked after and have made some fantastic memories. The watersports team were incredible, a big thank you to Theodor and Spyros in particular for all their help with fly boarding and waterskiing, and for putting on an amazing boat trip.
We stayed at Ikos Olivia in June and it was fabulous. The food and customer service is impeccable, led by an incredible manager, Katerina Micheli. She greeted us and all the guests around the pool daily, making sure everyone was happy and catered for. We look forward to returning soon
Superb place. Spotlessly clean due to constant army of workers cleaning it. Food exceptionally well made and presented. We didn’t think all inclusive at this level existed tbh. Scenery outstanding. The real kicker is the service intensity though. Constant array of smiling faces looking to take care of whatever you need at that time. Service manager Katerina led by shining example and got the balance of checking in enough but not too much to be annoying - just perfect! Too many individual names to mention exhaustively, but I’ll try. Shout outs to Androniki. Elena. Mathilda. Elisavert. Maria. Stelianna. Anna Maria. Olga. Nicholas. Julia. Nico the tennis coach and all the crew at the amazing water sports facility. Can’t wait to go back there.
We stayed a week at Ikos Olivia, and it was perfect.We chose the deluxe collection and it was a wonderfully pampering experience. The rooms, the landscaping, the beach and pools were all truly beautiful. The food, wine and cocktails were excellent and everything fully included. The water sports was fun and the staff all across was fabulous. The WhatsApp service (by the sweet and efficient Despina and Stephanie) was super convenient and helpful. Super recommend.
This was our first all inclusive holiday and im glad we chose the Ikos brand to do this with. Its got a reputation as a high end version of the all inclusive experience and we were very impressed. The Olivia is situated around 1hr drive from Thessaloniki airport. We used the airport transfers which arrived with nice clean cars. The resort itself was perfect for our 7 and 2 year olds, compact enough so that we were not walking far to get from place to place, but large enough not to seem cramped. We had a 1 bed bungalow. I think this would be a touch small if you have older children but worked well for us. From the moment we go there i could tell this was a luxury all inclusive, everything from branded drinks to all the restaurants, to basic water sports and kids clubs were included. Not only included but everything was of a high standard We tried out all the restaurants (make sure you book well in advance) and they all had their good dishes. Don't go and expect michelin star food but have realistic standards of good restaurant food. The facilities were very nice, 2 large pools plus smaller ones including a splash pool. Very clean and while busy never felt over the top, no running to secure a sun bed. The beach itself was ok, quite shallow water and a lot of stones. Water sports options were available. Some free like the pedalos and kayaks. The best thing about Ikos though was the service. Every member of staff was polite, friendly and helpful. This made the holiday for us. The staff are a credit to the brand All in all, a lovely break. Olivia is one for those with younger kids but i hear the other Ikos resorts are probably better for older ones. I am thinking of booking one already for next year!…

Ikos goes the extra mile beyond any other resort I have been to in ensuring you enjoy your visit. The resort and its facilities s impeccably maintained. All the restaurants are delicious and the service is immediate, diligent and delightful. We always have a great time there and I love the fact that there are no hidden charges added to your bill at the end. In order to maintain the atmosphere and quality, ikos must ensure that they don't overfill the resort. The number of people at the resort meant there were no queues at the buffet, it was easy to reserve a place at any restaurant at a time that was suitable and there was space by the pool. If they ensure this remains the case then I will keep on returning every year!
Fabulous 10 days with a group of 17 – we were looked after so well. Had a particularly amazing time with the watersports – waterskiing with Theodor and flyboarding with Spyros. All amazing fun! Thank you so much!
Incredible trip, amazingly looked after by everyone especially Chrisos and his team down at the water sports. Special mention to Spyros & Theodor for their service and being patient with a very large group, with the fly boarding, water skiing and various boat trips!
