Diplomats' Holidays
Ranked #2 of 2 Hotels in Chorto
Reviewed July 11, 2014

My husband and I stayed for 9 nights in June 14. The Diplomats is stunning. Rooms lovely and big (we had sea view studio and had everything we needed), fab bathroom, pool area so relaxing and calm clean beach and really lovely tavernas in the village. Cant wait to go back next year. So good we are taking 6 of our friends. We normally go exploring but no need as everything we need is there. Thank you for a calm and truly relaxing holiday Maria

We have been holidaying with friends for 30 years, and in 2002 we found the Diplomats', and have been going back every year since. Our stay has now extended to 3 weeks. Maria and her daughters Tina and Sissy, work hard to ensure their guest requirements are more than catered for. The Diplomats is situated in the beautiful area of Pelion, and within walking distance of the small village of Chorto, where you can by supplies etc. other lovely villages with their shady squares, or lovely beaches are within easy reach by car. All the apartments are individually designed, in a unique setting. The sea views are spectacular, with steps down to the beach and the crystal clear water. The apartments and studios are clean and comfortable with air conditioning if require. The Diplomats Taverna is near the waters edge and swimming pool, serving wonderfully prepared Greek delights. Flights are direct to Volos which is not too far away, but we choose to travel to Thessaloniki, which is a long but easy and pleasant journey passing Mt Olympus on the way. Can't wait for our next 3 weeks in June/July and again meeting up with the locals and other regular visitors to this beautiful place.

We stayed at the Diplomats in June 2013 for 2 very lovely weeks and really didn't want to leave. We first became aware of these apartments 12 years earlier when we stayed at the Panorama Milina around the bay and hired a little boat and sailed past the Diplomats and I really have no idea why it took us 12 years to go and stay there! We have been to many places in Greece over the years and I have to say that this has got to be one of the most beautiful situations imaginable. For us it had everything we needed, well appointed apartments (plug socket near a mirror and a shower curtain!) as well as amazing sea viwes from the balcony where we used to sit and watch the fishing boats come across the bay at night. Maria's on site Taverna run by her and her 2 daughters and their friend was in a perfect setting right overlooking the sea and I just loved the fact that from there or the pool you could walk down some steps on to the little pebbly beach and straight into the calm clear sea for a swim.
I can't rate this property highly enough and although it is situated on quite a steep hill the benefits of the views from all angles more than made up for the walk back to the room. You can walk into town in around 20 mins and we hired a car for a week and went off to explore the mountain villages of the Pelion which are all lovely. Loved it so much we want to go back this year.

Room Tip: Ask for an 'upper room as not all the ground floor rooms have a full sea view

Nice surrounding but the rooms are right up to the hill and you need a car to go to the beach.
There's no breakfast facilities and you also need a car to go to the local market to buy food.
So, if you seek for a secluded place and you don’t mind “stiff hill” it’s a nice place to be. I was there with my baby and unfortunately there wasn’t a way to go to the beach by the stroller, I had to go by the car which is not really the ideal kind of vacation for me (driving all the time). I would be nice if I was told about it by the lady I spoke on the phone in order to book the room.............

Room Tip: Try rooms that are close to the beach

no place like it: the quiet, the water, the sky, the sunset, the people, maria, the olives, the feta, all of it: simply divine!!!
i can only wish i had two more months to stay in this resort with its ancient olive groves, the beautiful people, the silent nights, the starry skies, the crystal clear agean sea the walking treks along the sea in the morning, the bakery in Milina, the coffee in the restaurant porch, and most of all, feeling so much at home!!!!!

Room Tip: ask for direct view to the sea

This was our fifth visit to the beautiful area of The Pelion in Greece. We first discovered Pelion over 10 years ago and very little has changed. We have stayed in various places in Pelion but first saw Diplomats on our first visit when we were staying at Lafkos. We vowed we would come back and stay. Unfortunately we have not been able to get booked in until this visit when we booked ourselves instead of with a tour company. The hotel consists of lots of varying accommodation down the hillside to the beautiful sea and every apartment is different. We were lucky to get apartment with large terrace overlooking the sea and wonderful sunsets. The owners are lovely and very welcoming. There are some very steep slopes/steps in the hotel so be prepared for a hike either down to sea/restuarant or back to car park at top but its worth it. Our apartment consisted of a largish room incorporating small kitchen area with sink, 2 ring hob, and full size fridge, bed and table and chairs with separate shower room and toilet and was traditional greek style with pine furniture and small tv. We also had a large private terrace with table, chairs and a sunbed. Some of the terraces are not so private. Parking is plentiful which is good as a car is definitely needed, as the hotel is a 20 minute downhill/uphill back walk into Chorto where there is just a few tavernas and small supermarkets. The majority of tavernas are in the next village on in Milina. Equipment in the apartment could have been better and we had no kettle or frying pan, just one very large saucepan and one smaller one. As it was the end of the season perhaps it was better equipped in the beginning. However, we did our own thing for breakfast and eat out every evening and had some lunches in the hotel restaurant which again has amazing views. The swimming pool is also lovely, very quiet and peaceful with ancient olive trees providing plenty of shade, All in all a wonderful relaxing place. A pity we only had one week this time. We love the whole of Pelion and have in our various visits been everywhere we could reach by car and sometimes by boat but consider that Chorto/Milina area is the best. The tavernas are great, fresh meat, fresh vegetable and best of all fresh home cooked real chips! A 3 course meal including house wine cost between 25 and 35 Euros per couple. The swimming is better than anywhere else we've ever been (and we've travelled all over the world). There is snorkelling but this is not as good as the red sea area but the water is really crystal clear and warm. Beaches vary so you do need swimming shoes on but once in the sea bottom is usually sandy. The hotel is about 1 hour 30 minutes easy drive from Volos airport. Wish I could spend a month at Diplomats!

For my family is the second time at Diplomats Hotel. Everything is great, the location, the hospitality, the view, the accomodation, the small beach, the cats and most of all, beautiful tavern just above the sea. The food is excellent - all meals are homemade.
Strongly recommended for those who want a quiet, peaceful, charming and relaxing holiday!
