“Very nice hotel!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

Very nice hotel, clean and excellent service! Very close to the most famous beaches and to the traditional village. It is a family hotel and the people are very friendly, polite and they offer you anything you request. They drive me and my friend to the beach or to the next village with the hotel mini van, which is very convenient for us because we didn't have car.

We will come back again for sure.

The hotel itself is not terrible...it is maybe between poor and average, but the overall experience brought down the grade. The room was relatively clean, but with a very bad smell coming from the bathroom. The light didn't work and there was no shower curtain (we got one after asking for it three times). The restaurant was not really clean...the dinner was quite ok, although you can choose from only 2-3 things, but the breakfast was extremely poor. The buffet is supposed to last for 2 hours, but toward the end there is almost no food left. The staff was pretty nice and polite but not serious...you usually have some young girl (a student maybe) running the restaurant and the reception all by herself. One afternoon we didn't even have water...the rest of the time we couldn't set the water temperature in the shower so we had hot/cold showers. The furniture was very old, including the joinery (the door was cracked).

All in all, wouldn't go there again even if you paid me.

I see people saying it is an excellent hotel...so either it was completely different when they were there (a different set of circumstances) or they have pretty low standards.

Very nice hotel!
Beautiful place, nice and large pool, kind and polite staff. I stayed there for a week, B&B format. The hotel is 1 km far from the sea, but it's no problem: the staff is always ready to take you to the beach ("officially" there are four transfers: at 10 a.m., 12, 14 and 16 p.m., but you can refer to the receptionist at any time and they'll get you there). Transfers to the beach are completely free. Don't forget to tell the driver when you wanna go back, he'll arrive to pick you up and get back to the hotel (if he forgets to come at the agreed time, simply refer to the beach staff and ask them to phone the hotel, they know all the phone numbers). Don't forget about 15% beach bar discount that you have, simply say that you stay at Giannikos. The hotel is situated near Paliouri village, it's not so far as mentioned in some reviews here - it takes max. 15 minutes to get to the central square of Paliouri on foot. But you can still ask for a free transfer at the hotel reception.
The staff is very friendly and ready to help. It's a family business, and they really try to make your stay comfortable. Kostas, one of the owners, is a good and friendly guy despite his serious look. Rooms are being cleaned daily.
The rooms are pretty comfortable, but there is nothing special and the furniture is a bit old and old-fashioned. If you prefer luxury - it's not your hotel. But if you come to enjoy travelling, excursions and the cleanest blue sea - it's the right choice! Every room has an air conditioner.
Breakfasts in the hotel are too "continental" and are always the same - cereals, eggs (fried or boiled), ham, cheese, bread, butter, sweet pastry, coffee or cacao. Nothing special. But I don't think that you'll find anything special concerning breakfasts in Europe.
Also you have a 10% discount in the tavern "Giannikos", it's in Paliuori (seafood in the tavern in really very tasty).
There are lots of mosquitos in the evening, so refer to the reception and they'll give you anti-mosquito wipes for body and anti-mosquito tablets for the room.
Summing up: this hotel is really a very good choice.

First the stuff is very nice and polite. If you travel often in Greece you will understand what I am,
In 7 days in all situation they help me with information what to do, where to go, problem with car owner come with me to help me etc. Rooms are very nice and everyday cleaning lady is passing and cleaning rooms. Food is perfect! We were on HB and all our dinners were different and most important food was fresh and very well prepare. We were going with car to beach. I recommend this hotel to all who want nice holiday!

Giannikos is a hotel where you can truly rest. Although some 500m from Xenia beach (you have to take a ride), the hotel compensates with polite and helpful staff, delicious food, clean and cosy rooms and toilets. It's the best choice for accomodation if you want to stay near one of the most beautiful beaches of Halkidiki.

quiet location, up on the road therefore needs car/bike to get to the village or the beach
nice pool and garden where much of what you have for breakfast is picked up,
room plain but practical with view either ot the pool or the garden
breakfast as any continental but marmelade is homemade as cakes etc
lunch/dinner not much of a choice but doesnt matter because all are homemade and delicious and if there was more then i would end up 20 stone
mrs stathoula, is really so kind and polite and lovely that makes you forget of anything you may have thought missing or not on the spot
thank you!

This hotel is average , the rooms are reasonable size and clean...the furniture is a little bit older but like in any average accommodation in GR right? :) the balcony is overlooking at the gardens that are all around the hotel that makes him pleasant , or at the pool , so sitting outside the room is very cozy at the evening . The pool is clean and ok .. About the food - don't expect too much choice - but what is offered is tasty . For dinner you can find vegetables,salads,meat,soup,fruit - so you wouldn't leave hungry...The breakfast is same every morning : ham,yellow cheese ,boiled eggs, bread , marmelades, sweet cake ,cornflakes,milk,juice,coffee and that is about it - but still you won't leave hungry from there :)
The location of the hotel is not suitable if you are not with the car there , because is a little bit far from the beaches .. it is about 1km from the nearest beach and that beach is very nice ... If you go with the car there you can see all the near beaches which offer beach bars, sandy and clean waters , relaxing atmosphere ...
All in all this hotel is viable if you go there till the end of june , after that the prices are very high for what they offer...

Room Tip: all of the rooms are similar
