If you are looking for a 5 Star destination with a 2 Star price, Oceanview Beach Hotel is worth looking into. Northern Greece is a popular destinations for those interested in following the Apostle Paul's footsteps and seeing the Philippi ruins.
The hotel is quaint in number of rooms but huge in amenities. It is a family operated property but you have to stay a couple of days to figure it out. The first telltale sign is the attention to detail from the cleanliness to the beautiful grounds to the fine food in the restaurant. If you start asking questions you find a hard working family with a great disposition for taking care of their guest even though there are some N.Y. genes in the family. New Yorkers can have a rough outer shell that you have to get through but if you do you will find gracious, big hearted people in this family. Being American is a bonus as they have created a great balance of Greek and American feel to everything. Other bonus is they speak excellent English. They don't treat you like family though, they treat you like royalty.
The property has every amenity you need with full service restaurant, inside bar, beach bar and at night they open the bar on the cliff overlooking the Aegean Sea. Greek beaches are public so the beach are can get crowded by the afternoon but there is plenty of beach to take a walk away and the water is as pretty as you can find anywhere. The hotel takes care of the beach property and does an immaculate job at keeping it cleaned up.
Highly recommended for romance, family, friends or solo destination.
