Really enjoyed our two week stay at Hanioti village. The rooms are very good with nice balconies and free aircon which was great. They are serviced every day by two friendly cleaners. Breakfast is lovely. you can sit inside or outside and there is a good selection food and drinks.Fried eggs and scrambled eggs are alternated each day with bacon ,sausage, hard boiled eggs , tomatoes, cheese, ham, olives,croissants, fresh bread (toaster) peaches, yoghurt, tea and coffee machine, juices all of which you serve youself. There is a nice pool and jacuzzi with sunbeds and umbrellas, plus a bar.. The service is great and very friendly making you feel welcome and at home. A six or seven minute walk takes you to the lovely beach where you can hire sunbeds orbuy a beach umbrella and use your own gear. Hanioti centre is a 20 minute walk but there are bars and restaurants after 10 minutes. We enjoyed Erodios restaurant ( the nearest ] and Nick's bar, but there are lots of restaurants and they are all very nice. Congratulations on having such a great hotel and providing us with a wonderful holiday. Loved it.…
Just back from a ten night break in Hanioti, Halkidiki, Greece. The hotel is lovely, the staff make it five stars. We had excellent service throughout our stay. We would have preferred a ground floor room, but sadly these were all taken during our period of occupation. My gripes would be pricey drinks (this is subjective- some people would disagree) expensive add-on facilities (surcharges for spa and gymnasium use) and steps. It was 54 steps from our room, on the first floor, to breakfast - 27 there and 27 back. We had a nice, relaxing break though and felt a little fitter at the end of it. If you have mobility issues, then a ground floor room is a must, but there will still be steps. N.B. Step free access, throughout Greece, was at a premium. If your idea of a holiday is to "chill" then this is an ideal accommodation. Its a short walk, or a quick taxi journey into Hanioti - maps may have this as Chanioti. The beach is a ten minute stroll and the sea is beautiful - clear, blue and warm (at least it was in June) with plenty of access. Its a longer walk, still achievable, into Pefkochori, or a longer taxi journey, or one stop on the bus. The bus stop is a five minute walk - but beware, in the heat of the day this can be a trek. Buses go to Paliouri one way and all the way to Thessaloniki the other. A timetable is displayed in the bus shelter, which gives a guide - if someone else is waiting then you haven't missed it! We found the local buses to be clean, comfortable and reliable, but you have to be patient regarding timings. Hey, we were on holiday, so if the bus is ten minutes late it was nothing to stress about. Supermarkets are located on the main road - take some water if you're walking there and back in the heat - at both Hanioti and Pefkochori. Corner shops and minimarkets are prolific in both places. There's a bakery at both places, on the main road, with the Pefkochori one open 24 hours. You certainly won't starve here! Talking of food, we stayed bed and breakfast. Breakfast was lovely, with a range of diets catered for. Greek bakery delicacies, full English style, continental.....all these are catered for. Delicious coffee and juices. The pool and spa/gym are open daily. The pool and surrounding sunbeds (see photo) are free, the spa and gym are accessible at an extra cost. We thought the pool was excellent, but beware if you have children or are not a strong swimmer because the "deep end" is deep! We saw this as a plus, not a minus and we swam daily. Reception can help with arrangements like car hire, trips through holiday reps, taxis and walking directions. ALL staff were superb, throughout our stay and make it the five star review. Thank you to everyone for really caring about us enjoying our stay. If you want lively, action, then you need to be closer to the resort centre. If you want a nice relaxing holiday, then Hanioti Village Resort ticks all the boxes. Recommended…
Fabulous family-run hotel, so welcoming and spotlessly clean. Bill and his team worked so hard and nothing was too much. Stayed B&B, and breakfast was perfect. Great, friendly bar with bar meals. 10 minute stroll to the nearest beach and 20 minutes to the centre of the wonderful village with its tavernas, square, shops and beach. Excellent value and highly recommended.
Fantastic helpful and courteous staff . Spotless rooms . Free aircon Pool area lovely with plenty of sunbeds and umbrella's , although we did go in early June . Buffet breakfast with a varied choice , so something for everyone and no limit on the amount you could eat . Really good lunch time menu at very reasonable prices . Did not have an evening meal in the hotel , so can't comment . Hanioti village centre is 15 minutes walk away so ate out every night . Overall the hotel was extremely good value for money and we had excellent holiday and would highly recommend it.
Lovely hotel, brilliant staff. Lovely room. Spotlessly clean. Cannot fault it. Staff very helpfull. Pool and jacuzzi spot on. The breakfast was very good eat as much as you like. Would love to stay here in future.
I gave this hotel 4 stars. I wavered between 3 and 4, and would have given it 3 and a half if I could, but as I couldn't, I rounded up, rather than down. There are some niggles, but many good points too. I'll try to fairly address them all. In August 2021, the Hanioti Village Resort was having to cope with Covid-19 restrictions, so they had to make changes which made the holiday less relaxing than it otherwise would be. I don't blame them for that of course, it's out of their hands. But still, there could be improvements. For example, at Breakfast, you have to queue up outside (in the heat) as only one family at a time are allowed in. Then the staff ask what you want (there's a decent selection of hot and cold), and they serve it up. You then take your food to the outdoor veranda (covered) or gardens to eat. In normal times, you'd eat inside, but alas, this year it wasn't possible. The problem is, there was four of us, and the veranda is set up with tables for two. So we usually went to the gardens, but that's in the blaze of the sun, and on cheap plastic table and chairs. You try to place the table in the shade of the hedge or palm tree, but the sun moves, and you're quickly in the hot sun. The lunch menu at the bar was really nice, and service was great. However, there are only two small tables on the decking area by the pool, each with only three seats. That's not enough. We had to eat on our beds some days. That's okay, but not ideal. The pool is nice enough, and there's a jacuzzi part which you need to ask to turn on. The jacuzzi water seemed to have a bit of a film on anda few dead bugs. They had an ice cream freezer but that wasn't working. That would have been great. There are enough beds around the pools (get up early when us Brits are there, about 7.30am for a good choice), but they're so uncomfortable. One side is entirely in the shade with massive umbrellas, one side is entirely in the sun with no umbrellas, and the third side is shaded by palm trees. That was where we preferred. Our room was a superior double. It had been recently refurbished to a good standard, but I'm not sure 'superior' describes it. It was nice though, but good lord, it needed more storage (room 201). There was ONE small drawer on top of a small fridge. There was hardly any shelving, and the 'pool view' was entirely obscured by a large bush. You could ask for your room to be cleaned and towels replaced. Sometimes though it was cleaned without me asking, so I was a bit confused! The shower was the best I've ever had. Hot and powerful. The pillows were rock hard and thick, so sleeping on your front wasn't an option. Our daughters had room 305, and that wasn't refurbished, but we preferred it, as it was bigger and had much more storage. The hotel is next to a main road, so at first the road noise was noticable, but as the days passed, we stopped noticing it, and it didn't bother us. Hanioti only is a 15 walk away, and beach only 5 minutes. The staff work really hard (they are understaffed which doesn't help I'm sure). The daytime barman seems to do absolutely everything. He's a treasure, and makes a mean Mojito and latte. He did a pool party one day, where he made Mojitos in the jacuzzi, and we all chilled out in the sunshine. That was our favourite day for sure! The nightime barman was called Billy. A laid back, sardonic character who went to great lengths to try to get us a taxi on a couple of nights, whilst also juggling bar responsibilities. A good egg. The grounds are pretty and well maintained, and the buildings neat and tidy. Aircon in the rooms was free (amazingly), and could be left on when you left the room. Bliss! Smoking was permitted around the pool. Come on Greece, catch up. Who wants smoke covering you when you're sunbathing? Drinks were quite pricey. If I order a Sprite, I want the a whole, unopened, new bottle, not a slim glass, half filled with ice, and then topped up from an already opened bottle of Sprite. Two glasses of Malibu and Pineapple were €13, and the glasses as mentioned, were slim. The fresh orange and milkshakes were lovely. Some of these issues (e.g. Covid-19 rules) have been forced on the hotel and they can't help it. Some issues (e.g. road noise) they can't do anything about. But some things (crap sunbeds, lack of parasols, price of drinks, plastic tables, lack of pool view from room 201), they could address, and I hope they will. If they do, the Hanioti Village Resort will be the better for it.…
Staff extremely helpful and flexible. Nice pool and surroundings. Room was perfect for the basic needs: clean, tidy, comfortable (perhaps the pillow was too soft). Breakfast is table service, they only had one or two members of staff, so some patience is required. Would highly recommend this place!
Staff really friendly and helpful, especially Christina in reception. Wedding was 1 hour away, arranged taxis to pick-up point. Rooms very comfortable. Centre a bit away, pity there is no shuttle bus.
We had a nice stay at this hotel, room was a little dated but ok, breakfast was good but evening meal was not good, I would recommend staying b&b as we ate out a few times, the pool is good and no need to get up early to reserve a bed there is always some available, the staff are really good and helpful, overall a nice place to stay
I and my wife stayed at the Junior Suit which is equipped with jacuzzi bath tub. The room was spacious, clean and well furnished. Housekeeping changed our towels on a daily basis. The receptionist was really helpful and kind. The breakfast was rich and varied (one of the best buffet-type I have ever had). Definitely a place to visit again!
