Ampelia Hotel
Reviewed March 3, 2014

Sorry for the incredibly late review. My family and I stayed at The Ampelia Studios for two weeks in July 2013. It's a small, beautiful complex, perfect for couples both young and older and families. The studios were very spacious and spotlessly clean. Hosts Poppy and Pandelis were absolutely brilliant! They were so helpful, chatty and passionate about delivering an amazing experience to their guests. The pool area has such a chilled out and relaxing atmosphere. The bar/snack bar area is a great place to have a break from the sun and grab some of their delicious and great value for money food and snacks. With just a ten minute walk from Hanioti town with all it's restaurants, bars and shops and a fifteen minute walk to the beach, the location of Ampelia Studios is perfect. It's always great to hire a car and get out and about as we discovered a fantastic, fairly secluded beach a few miles down the road.
Was such a fantastic holiday, especially thanks to Poppy and Pandelis, really can't praise them enough for all their hard work and enthusiasm in what they do. Will DEFINITELY stay here again if I visit Hanioti in the future.

Stayed here in July 2013, beautiful pool area, close to resort, had a great holiday. Poppy was really nice, food here at lunch was very good. Hanioti was nice, but the beach was too crowded for us, no quiet area to walk to.

Stayed here for 2 weeks in September 2013 and it was the most relaxing holiday we have had even with a 3 year old!! We met some absolutely fabulous people which made the holiday even better, we would all end up meeting in the bar after we had been for our evening meals and had some right laughs. Poppy and Pandelis are excellent hosts and will tell you all the best places to go. We got the bus to Afitos which we thought was beautiful, very Greek which i found Hanioti square lacked, for us it was quite commercialized where we thought it would be typical Greek. It certainly wouldnt put us off going again as we are thinking of going back this year to this hotel, the only thing we would do would be to hire a car. Plenty of sunbeds and even when the hotel was full it never felt crowded or packed, bar snacks really nice too especially the wraps. Rooms were cleaned with new linen and towels quite often. We were on the ground floor which didnt bother us in the slightest nice large patio area where we would eat our greek salad we made ourselves, large supermarket on main road where we bought all our salad and fruit. Overall a little Gem of a place and cannot wait to go back for some more sun and relaxation......if only the people we met would be there again :)

Myself and my other half stayed here the first week in September and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Poppy and Pantelis are brilliant hosts. Always around to help and to have a good laugh with...or to laugh at my boyfriends lobster sun burn!
There was always space around the pool, lovely relaxed and friendly atmosphere, good bar food and drinks - try the wraps and milkshakes!
Rooms were basic as expected, but had everything we needed and were always very clean.
Restaurants we enjoyed were La Romantica and Pallinis.
If we were to visit hanioti again we would definitely stay here.

Ok, I wasn't going to write a review, but what with the New Year and another holiday to book...I thought...what the hey!
We stayed with Pandelis(Pan-d-lease) and Poppy the last two weeks of September 2013. Do not be misled, you will be staying with two of the nicest people you could ever wish to meet anywhere on this big planet! Hospitality and relaxation are guaranteed. The apartments are immaculate and the cleaning team are absolute angels.
A short walk to town with lots of good eateries and bars. But as with any good hosts ask for recommendations, P & P know what is what in town. Exploring the area is really easy by local bus, we loved Afitos and Xenia Beach, but again, P & P will also give you recommendations of places worth a visit.
PLEASE, keep this resort a secret - it's too nice to let any old riff raff know about it.
Hiya to Ron(G&T) & Lynn, Mark & Margaret, Simon, Vicky & Oliver plus everyone else we got to know around the pool. You also made our stay so enjoyable.
Will be happy to answer any further questions or queries.
Happy Travels

Lovely, roomy apartments, with everything you could need including excellent showers (take your own hairdryer though ladies), kept spotlessly clean. Poppy and Pandelis were the perfect hosts, giving a fabulous welcome, advice on where to go and what to do, and nothing was too much trouble for them. The pool and surrounding grounds, like the apartments, were clean and immaculate. The apartments were set on a quiet lane with a gentle10 minute downhill stroll taking you to the main road. Crossing the road takes you to the edge of Hanioti town with lots of good tavernas, some bars and many shops - something to keep everyone entertained after a busy day relaxing by the pool, or sightseeing. We hired a car for a few days, and found some beaches that Poppy and Pandelis recommended, the best of which in our opinion, were on the opposite side of the island. A trip off the peninsula to the caves, stopping at Nea Moudania on the way there was a very enjoyable day out as well. There is a good bus service on the main road at the bottom of the lane, which runs along the coast stopping at all the little vilage and also by some lovely beaches.
Would highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking to chill out, with the bustling town area a relaxing 15 minute walk away. A perfect place to go and we will be going back soon (not so boring for us Pandelis, PAOK going well in the Europa cup - maybe if we finish as well as we started, our teams could be drawn together in the knock out stages?). Look forward to seeing you both again

Just returned from a two week stay at the Ampelia studios and would like to add to the many other good reports on Tripadvisor. We were there for the last two weeks of the season and were very lucky with the weather being glorious. The studios are spacious enough with everything needed for a good holiday. We even cooked and ate in a couple of times and found the cooking facilities no problem. The two lasses that cleaned the rooms every day were smiley and discrete and left the place immaculate.
On the odd occasion that we stayed "poolside" we enjoyed the very tasty and freshly cooked wraps and toasties washed down with lovely iced glasses of Mythos from the pool bar.
Hanioti itself has a great range of restaurants with varied menus and was lively enough without being raucous. Worth the 15 minute walk from the apartment!
If your stay is more than a week, I would recommend hiring a car and getting out and about. We toured Kassandria and Sithonia and found some lovely spots off the beaten track. We also thoroughly enjoyed the pirate boat trip to Athos even though it was a bit crowded!!
Halkidiki is a lovely part of Greece and the Ampelia studios make for a very comfortable stay. Highly recommended!
