We are a family with two children age 4 and baby 10 months. We booked this hotel since it is recommended for families - there is a kitchenette, playground and also there is a half board included - we thought "this is just we are looking for". We were given a room in C block, ground floor. This C block is the only one that have so call "sea view" - you can just guess where is the sea, since there is a bushy trees in front of your room which additionaly makes you feel as you are in some kind of basement full of mosquitoes. The kitchenette is so dirty that even if you will not use it, you will get sick each time you look at it! So, the first thing you need to do in 4 star hotel (if you are with small kids and need to prepare milk or some food) is to clean the kitchenette! Do not expect the staff will do that, because they wan't. After 5 days of our insisting we were given another room, the same block, first floor. It was not as we were in the basement, however the disgusting kitchenette was waiting for us again. The bathroom is so small, that two of us could not bath the baby! If you are a family, you also need to ask for additional chairs on the terrace. The wire for drying towels is also awfuly dirty! What was clean in this hotel is the swimming pool and the area around the pool. There is a bar on the pool where you can have a lunch - I ordered spaghetti for my older kid and I could tell you they was from the main restaurant from the previous day! Then, I ordered grilled squids and were given fried and so fatty we coudn't eat them! The food in the restaurant (half board included) was ok - soups, different kind of meat, fish, salads; breakfast was also just fine; all 10 days poor choise of fruits; Just be aware of this - you need to choose right time for your breakfat or dinner, since it may happen you will find almost nothing to eat or the worst choise at the ending time. The staff is average. When it's about the beach - there is a hill you need to cross, about 10 mins walk to the beach - there is Molos beach bar "a greek one" which is nice and always crowded; sparkling water is 6 eur, a coke 4,5 eur; near Molos is the "beach bar" where a man comes to you to pick 6 eur and offer you frape or water. You can put your own umbrellas if you prefer, there is enough place which is not the case at Molos beach.There is a fine gravel on both of the beaches, so if you like sand you will need to go to Paliouri at Xenia beach at the end of Kassandra.
Hanioti village becames a flea market in the evening; there are russian titles everywhere - as you are in some chineese - russian town where you can smell gyros on the street.
The Greeks didn't do serious investment in Kassandra since 90's...(holes in the road, no pavement,etc.). To summarize - not worth for money.
