Village is very close to a Power Plant most likely burning coal. You can see the smoke coming especially at sunset and, depending on the wind direction, you can even smell it. It has 5 quite big smokestacks you cannot really pretend not to see while on the beach. They declare 5 stars but it is clearly NOT a 5... More

After our 50-years wedding anniversary we celebrated a one week all inclusive holiday with our 2 sons, daughter in law and 3 grandsons, age 19, 17 and15 yrs old. I can only give the best rate for hotel, food, facilities and foremost the friendliness of every member of the staff. In one word: GREAT!

We're currently staying at this hotel and we love it so far: - the food is amazing - very helpful and friendly staff - clean chambers (main building) 5 stars for the hotel. However, 2 stars for the beach and swimming pool area because most guests are reserving their seats even though the hotel policy forbids this. The life guards... More

We booked last minute and stayed at the Apollonia Resort & Spa for one week. Very nice hotel with all the amenities for families. Kids club, multiple pools, clean beach, nice grounds, excellent food and friendly staff. For the price charged you can't really expect much more. Mainly German and French speaking crowd while we were there. The only word... More

Very good and clean hotel. The service was good and the kindness of the people was very good. The diversity of food was also very good. A special ceremony for greek easter was also very nice to do with tasting of some local specialities. A place to go back definitely.
