We went half board as we didnt want to spend a lot on eating out but the food was cheap and poor quality. We ended up eating out everyday as we couldn't eat there anymore it got unbearble. Some of the staff were rude and the area has nothing to do. The rooms were spacious but looked tired and outdated. Not too clean either. Wifi didnt work as well. 2/5 place for me.Not terrible but not great.

We stayed here for 10 days in august-september 2019. The hotel was a dissapointment. No hot water in the showers before dinnertime when everybody gets in the room, i had to shower my 1 year old in cold water almost everyday. The room is old, with old furniture, the bathroom is very out of date simply just not for a 4 star hotel. ( For ex: the toilet makes a very loud noise when you flush) The rooms are cleaned every day, but you have to ask for clean sheats or towels. The walls are very thin so you can hear everything from the neighbours The food is so and so. For a hotel that pretends to have an all inclusive service i think the food Is basic and you don't have too many choices if you want to eat for ex.: meat. The positive side is, that i liked the beach - its pretty close to the hotel, sandy and you can find every day free sunbeds and they have a pool that is kid friendly- i mean only the kids use it it is that small 😊 You have to go with car to a nearby place that has more shops or night life in it. All in one a three star experience at best, but you can make it better if you come here with friends like we did 😊

We stayed in August / September 2019. Our transfer from the Thessaloniki airport took 2 hours, we went the long way around as two other people needed to be dropped off to a different resort. We didn’t mind that much. Upon arrival the hotel and especially the swimming, lit up with colour changing lights looked amazing. The receptionist was waiting in the door of the hotel to check us in. All very nice indeed. He checked us in, took the tourist tax and gave us our all in inclusive wrist bands and room keys. We had two room keys for each room. He then explained that the all inclusive only included draught lager, soft drinks (cola and lemonade, not bottled water was 2 euros a bottle) Brandy, Ouzo and coffee / tea. No other spirits, no fresh juices, no other beers or lagers other than Zorbas which is 3.6 % vol. So that was hell on earth. No gin, No Whiskey. The brandy was weak and as for the ouzo, one of us ended up buying it in the local supermarket because the one they served in the hotel did not have the same level of alcohol, if indeed any at all. Wine was included, a white, a red and a rose, all of which were undrinkable and tasted like vinegar. The swimming pool was nice but on closer inspection, from the water, we could see the top line of tiles were filthy and had a green mould incrusted on them and hundreds of guests had carved their names into this green mould substance. The water turned peoples white swimming costumes and tee shirts yellow and even put a greenish tinge into one of the guests hair. The food was not the best but most of found something to eat that was OK and on occasion really very nice. However, several members of our party of ten are vegetarians and they lived off pasta, tomato sauce and a very bland grated cheese. By the end of the week all of were sick of the food and we eat out in a local restaurant called Spaghetti, which I highly recommend, as we had a lovely meal, in a beautiful setting for not very much all at. The food in the hotel was not Greek in the slightest but was aimed at the eastern European and Russian guests that filled the hotel, fair enough perhaps. Sadly, even though they were given food they knew, they did not like or want it either, preferring to have experienced Greek food in Greece, obviously. Although we were two room keys only one worked and we had to change it three times before giving up and sticking to one key. Our fellow party members all had the same experience. One of our party decided to play a trick on another of us and asked for a key to another person’s room, reception gave her a master key to all the hotels rooms and so she could have fleeced the entire place. Not only that, they thought it was her room and didn’t check. Whilst she was only playing a joke on one of us, it says a lot for the security of the place. Breakfast started at 8.00 and finished at 09.30. There was tomatoes, cucumber, slices of edam and gouda cheese, pork luncheon meat, ham and a salami on one counter. Three pastries, filo pastry with a filling, a creamy substance, a meat substance and one stuffed with spinach. There were mini frankfurters and a fried mini salami sausage on alternate days. Fried eggs with hard yolks, beans, boiled eggs and French toast on another counter. Bread, which you could slice yourself, or sliced bread for toasting in the toaster which was a normal two slice domestic toaster. There was only one of them too. A selection of honey, jam and chocolate hazelnut spread. Fresh fruit and yogurt. Coffee came from a vending machine, press the button and put the cup underneath the nozzle. Actually the coffee was not bad at all and it was good coffee either. The orange juice was a first for me, the machine clearly stated three items and had three dispensing nozzles. Orange Juice, water and Apple juice. I opted for orange juice. As it tuned out it was orange squash, hence the water option in the middle. The apple juice was apple squash too. I was not the guest fooled by this on the first morning and several guests laughed watching me fill a glass with orange concentrate before realising my error. They had done the same they told on their first day. I ended up with two very strong glasses of orange squash, not a nice breakfast experience. Lunch was at 12.00pm until 2.30pm. As with breakfast and indeed dinner there was the option to sit inside the restaurant or outside at the side of it. Not at the outside bar area however, which as adjacent to it too. Lunch came with the same first counter option without the cheese and meats, those being replaced with lettuce and onions. On the whole the food was dull and lacked seasoning, but most days I found something I liked and enjoyed for what it was. I found nothing I would have chosen to eat in an a la cart restaurant, however. The asparagus soup was brown and had frothy yellowy bits of crud floating in it so I was not brave enough to try it despite having very good holiday health insurance. What was not entirely eaten for dinner found it’s way into the breakfast offer next day. Hence we had vinegary mushrooms one morning! Fish was sometimes served and not everyone enjoyed having to remove the bones, as some dishes contained quite a lot, although others none at all. It potluck really. Dishes had a tendency to change during the sitting, so what started off as a tray of chicken roll later became a tray of something completely different. There were lots complaints about the food all round. The staff were all without exception, very nice and polite and helpful. In fact they were the hotels saving grace. They did stick to the hotels rules however about not allowing the guests to eat or drink anything not purchased from the hotel. A bottle of 70cl whiskey costing 70 euros! We did not buy any. We did buy wine and beer from the supermarket Kalethea however but only once! There was entertainment on one night only, every other Thursday in fact. This is a Greek night. No, there was no Greek food served in the restaurant on Greek night! Hotel guests had to reserve a table by buying as bottle of spirits, starting at 70 euros and climbing steeply. Many had so our party was split in two, one group crammed around a small table in the corner and the other group outside across the road on the beach side terrace watching the sea and chatting and not having the Greek night at all. Although there a was point when two Greek dancers followed by a chain of guests, children and their parents, came out from the hotel and danced along the road, around a lamppost and back into the hotel again. Not all our group had working air conditioning in their rooms and the televisions were not tuned in so were completely pointless. There was no tea or coffee facility in the room either and the shower was cold, although at times became slightly tepid. There was never any hot water. The maids changed the beds every day. When I say changed the beds, I mean they stripped them and left a pile of sheets and blankets on them for us to make up the beds. The beds were comfortable in my room, but others in our party had a different kind of bed and they were not at comfortable. Wifi did not always reach the rooms, in fact it only once during the time we were there. Each guest had to have an individual wifi code and they kept on cutting out and a new one was then required. I did not use any wifi but the younger members of our party were driven mad by this. There was no night life in the area, so this was a very quiet holiday indeed. The beach is nice but stoney in places. Lots of sun loungers available so no problem with having one for the day, in fact there always empty sun loungers available both around the pool and on the beach. Over all, I would Say the hotel is tired and needs updating. As this is not at all an all-in-inclusive they should not advertise and sell it as such. This is a nice place for a young family who do not drink alcohol and are happy to retire early with the kids worn out from swimming all day. I would not recommend this hotel or this resort otherwise. In fact, I cannot in all good conscience recommend this hotel at to anyone and I would never stay there again.

Unfortunately, the hotel does not offer far four star services. The rooms have old furniture, with an unpleasant smell. For a good cleaning you have to give some money to the carers, which is absolutely abnormal for four-star services. The beach is incredibly narrow and you have to go elsewhere to enjoy the beach. In addition, children simply do not have what to do outside the very small pool, which is strangely located near the bar. Hot water does not exist. Unfortunately I do not recommend this hotel to anyone and it is advisable to keep an eye on the reviews before giving a bit of money.

We stayed here last night. The photos are utterly misleading; the positive reviews very suspicious, but I have a limited grip of Latvian and Bulgarian. We arrived expecting a reasonably pretty, clean seaside hotel. What we found was absolutely disgusting. Possidi and the surround area is pretty grim. There is graffiti and rubbish everywhere. Properties by the beach are surrounded by broken chain-linked fences enclosing residential housing blocks. The hotel was no better. As we walked in, the place was swarming with topless middle-aged balding men sporting beer bellies. The wives, cigarettes hanging from their mouths, and the many many children were everywhere. We couldn’t see them all of course; many were obscured by the dirty clothing handing from the balconies. Imagine a large gathering of Tony Soprano and Barney Rubble’s extended family (in swim wear) and you have the picture. At reception, we received an embarrassed and half-hearted welcome. The poor staff kindly upgraded us to a sea-view, presumably so we could watch Tony and Barney build a sand castle out of the gravel that was sold to us as a beach. The room was dated and strewn with the cheapest furniture. Imagine student accommodation, and add some bodily fluids on both the sheets and the walls. When showering, you simultaneously avoided touching the shower curtains while watching your shower water run down the plug-hole, only to emerge from a hole in the bathroom floor, presumably mixed with whatever Tony and Barney used to scrub those hairy bellies in the neighbouring room. One perk was that food was included, but by the time we made it to the school canteen, someone was scraping the the communal tray for scraps and the main offering was boiled tinned carrots and undiluted cordial. The gym, which my partner tried to use, had a running machine, but it was broken so she spent her time doing lunges while pondering where it had all gone so wrong. Coffee is free. And up the beach is Possidi Cape, which is worth a swim. That is, until the fisherman ruins the setting sun by frantically waiving you out of the sea because he wants to toss his line. Absolutely dreadful. You’ve been warned. Avoid like the plague. And if not, at least avoid the plug-hole in room room 508 (its the door to the right of the broken cabinet with a pad-lock and chain).
