“Will go back next year”
Reviewed August 22, 2009

Stayed a week at sani asterias with my wife and 14 months old daughter in a junior suite with a view on the marina. It was simply the best holiday I had in my lifetime. You can feel that the greek/american manager does an amazing job at running this hotel. All the staff (I really mean all - from the gardener to the beach waiters, waiters, receptionists, spa consultants and baby seaters) were amazingly friendly, smiling, relaxed whilst being super-efficient and dedicated to make it the best holiday we had. The beach, although not as beautiful as in more exotic destinations, is super-clean and very toddler-friendly with great space between the lounges. The nursery staff was very good to our daughter and they have UK qualifications. The receptionists were all doubling as baby-seaters and all did a great job so my wife and I could enjoy dinner and drinks in the evening. The food is absolutely amazing (and I am picky, being french and a seasoned London and Paris restaurant gastronomist). The breakfast buffet is just one of the most amazing buffet I have seen in world hotels, palaces or other 5 star resorts. It does put a smile to your face in the morning which is such a great way to start one's day. The restaurant (Waterfall) is also very good with michelin-starred trained cooks and was a true highlight in our holiday - the most pleasant dinner experience with a view on the swimming-pool lit by night, the marina, the sunset and a pianist playing in the background. Just stunning ! The bar is also great as well and the barman does a great job with mojitos, capirinhas and cosmopolitans. The spa and gym is another 5 star hotel just 5 min from the suites and is a great experience. I had a full body massage, used the steamroom, sauna, gym, in-door swimming pool, heated beds several times. Very friendly staff over there as well. Overall, I am just surprised that anyone could have had a bad experience, there as the staff is just extremely friendly, attentive and very qualified. Oh and the room service was a life-saver when it came to feeding our daughter or when we just wanted to stay in at lunch time or for dinner. After a whole week, we still hadnt tried the whole menu (very rare for a room service menu). I have nothing to add but that we will be going back next year. Simply the best.

Being a well seasoned traveller I know the golden rule is never to eat in the hotel.

Well this definitely does not apply at the Asterias Suites in the Sani resort. Quite simply it is the best hotel food in any family resort in Europe. That`s breakfast, lunch and especially dinner. And true to their word they will cook anything not on the menu, which is again a very rare thing on holiday.

The other reviews paint an honest picture so I wont rave about the friendly attentive staff, immaculate grounds, spotless rooms, well spaced sunbeds, beautiful swimming pool , quiet air con in the bedroom, knowledgable cocktail staff and gently sloping seabed.

There is a good selection of restaurants around the marina and the resort is totally geared up for families. Perhaps couples looking for a quiet break should avoid peak times during school holidays.

Finally I should point out the main reason that we would come back is the hotel manager. He seemed to be everywhere from sunrise to sunset making sure that everything was perfect, befriending all the guests in a manner that made you want to pack him into your suitcase and take hime home with you!

We were looking for an exclusive luxury European hotel right on the beach, with excellent food and where our 4 year old son would be well looked after.
Sani Asterias Suites delivered on all the above.
Location - Literally right on beach, which is sandy, private, clean and leads to a very child friendly sea ie stays shallow for meters and then very gently gets deeper so also good for swimming.
Food - All food in hotel great, but of particular note is the Water Restaurant, which is excellent. The willingness of the chef to allow you to go off menu is extraordinary in a restaurant of this quality and was much appreciated by my wife.
Childcare - There is a kids club - we didn't use it, but fellow guests said it was very good. We used baby sitters, who were excellent.
Marina - Not as excellent as hotel, but good for a change with a mixture of restaurants and bars. Japanese and Italian absolutely fine. Shops that my wife enjoyed and a decent supermarket.
Staff - The real icing on the cake. The Manager Kevin is a great manager and a great guy, both he and his staff make all guests feel very special.

When we arrived at the resort we were welcomed by the staff and at reception it was confirmed that they were giving us a free upgrade from a junior suite overlooking marina to a junior suite with oceran view for which we were grateful. Initial impressions were great as one of the staff went through all the facilities within the hotel and resort whilst we enjoyed a cold drink at the bar overlooking the beautiful marina.

We were then shown the room ( room 49 - please note) all i can say that my girlfriend and I were totally disaapointed. we had booked a room with open living room and very spacious balcony ( specifeid on website) and this had a separate pokey room with a small cramped balcony - alan partridge would have felt at home! the Air Con was not working properly either.

We decided that we would be much happier in the room we had booked with more space and looking over the marina. we went back to reception and asked them for this. The upshot was they could not do this as no.49 was the only room available.

We ended up spending the first 24 hours not unpacking and moving into no.36 the next day which had a beach view with the correct space internally and on the balcony

We were also disppaointed that the manager had confirmed to us on the first morning that "once you have moved rooms you would be just as happy as all the other guests" - this only rubber stamped that thay had tried to palm us off in the first place and that he concurred with us that we should nopt be happy with no.49. he also said to us that when no.36 was ready he would come and find us on the beach / pool. By 4.15pm no-one had come to find us and i was concerned. I went to reception and they gave me the key but did not shown me to the room - they indicated where it was and i went to find it. When i entered it was quite clear that he may have been embarrassed to show me as it was fantastic and just precisely what we we had expected.

Uutside this the hotel was fabulous but alas this left a sour taste in our mouths - i would recomend the hotel to anyone but for goodnes sake if you get offered a free upgrade be careful and rememeber no.49!!!

We said to our Travel Councellor send us somewhere for 7 days of doing nothing in the sun and a shortish flight from London. So less than an hour from Thessalonica we enjoyed a very content week at Sani resort. The layout, standards of service, cleanliness, personal care, facilities and accomodation are all excellent. The manager manages by walk-about. It is becoming crowded in July, so will probably return in May or September.

I recently had the pleasure in staying at the Sani Asterias Suites in Halkidiki and although i have satyed in many 5* star hotels over the years this hotel surpassed all of my experience and expectations. The hotel offered beauifully appointed accommodation and set within stunning gardens and enjoying magnificant sea views. The food in the hotel was outstanding and the hotel is situated on the edge of the Marina within walking distance of wonderful restaurants all enjoying views over the marina. But for me the most outstanding quality of this hotel was the incredible efficiency, politeness and helpfullness of all of the staff. Nothing was too much trouble and every need was met. I could not recommend this hotel high enough and will definately be re-visiting.

We chose to stay at the Sani Asterias Suites because we were looking for a holiday that would provide us the opportunity to totally chill out in luxury surroundings. We absolutely loved our suite and just being able to open the patio doors and step onto the beach was fantastic. The beach was lovely and clean with clear waters and rarely overcrowed. The service throughout the resort from the start to the end of our holiday was first class always someone on hand if needed but completely unobstrusive.
If you are after relaxation in gorgeous surroundings then this is the place to go....we will definately go again and hopefully very soon!!!
