Hotel Porfi Beach
Ranked #4 of 10 Hotels in Nikiti
Reviewed September 17, 2010

I stayed at this hotel for a week. I didn't expect too much because of the low rate, but what a wonderful surprise! The hotel is situated in a very well preserved pine tree forest right on the beach. During our stay it was very hot, almost 40 degrees Celsius, so the shade provided by the trees was a relief. The rooms are big and modern, we had a maisonette style family room for up to 4 persons. Our only inconvenient was that the TV had only one English speaking channel...the rest were in German, Russian and Greek languages. The service was very good and friendly starting with the reception staff to the restaurants. Despite the fact that it was peak season, the hotel didn't look full...perhaps because of the rumours about dangerous mosquitoes, lack of gas at the stations and the Greek financial crisis. I have to say that I've seen just a few mosquitoes (I used repellent in the room) and no problem with gas...just the price @ around 1,50 euros/liter.
Breakfast it's diverse, with fresh pies, cheese and hot selection. I would suggest more fresh vegetables and real coffee (not the instant coffee that was served every day).
The pool it's medium size and very good kept.
The beach it's very nice, with fine sand. You must pay for the chair and umbrella 3 euros/person which I think it's a fair price. Chairs and umbrellas at the pool are free. As you enter in the sea, it's a small portion with rocks, but after that it's only fine sand and the water it's gorgeous (green shades, very clean). Just on the right side of the hotel, as you walk on a narrow portion of beach, it's the most luxurious hotel in Halkidiki: The Danai.
It was one minor inconvenient: because of the warm water, the sea was full of big jellyfish (a not dangerous species).
We only eat twice at lunch in the hotel. The prices were low, not higher that the ones from the neibouring taverns.
I will highly recommend a car rental for trips to the fishing village of Vorvourou, Nikiti and to deserted beaches around Sithonia peninsula. Sithonia it's far more greener and relaxed than Kassandra, with mountains covered by pine forests...great place for relaxation. And you must stop on the way to buy local products: fruits, olives, honey.

ROOMS - OLD! Beds are not very comfortable, so don't count on good night sleep. Also, extremely loud air conditioner makes it impossible to fall a sleep.
LOCATION - It is located 3 km from Nikiti, so there is no restaurants, super markets, beaches around it. What can I say except I hope you have a car :))
PERSONNEL - extremely rude! Also, I hope you don't like to drink coffee in the morning because you will have to wait for at least 20 minutes to get one. Of course, for 3.5 euro.
BEACH - is small and it's not easy to get to the water. You will also have to rent sunbeds for 6 euro (2 sun bads and sunshade).

For all tourists tempted by the pictures posted on the INTERNET(web site of the hotel or others): Avoid this hotel!
Too expensive for the offered services and the beach quality!
No refrigerator(just a cooler that doesn't work properly)
The bathroom has also problems - it is not clean and it may not everything work properly
The restaurant of the hotel: to be avoided!
It is located far away(not in walking distance) from everything(other beach, supermarket, restaurants, etc)
The attitude of the personnel is extremely arrogant!
The beach is small and there is a real barrier of rocks between you and the water!
It is also unjustified expensive(3 Eur /sun chair, 2 Eur/0,5 ml water, 4 Eur/ beer etc)
Conclusion: Avoid if possible!

I'm studying in Thessaloniki and my mom came to visit me for some days. We both needed calm tranquility resting... the hotel was just perfect for that! We got a supreme room, even if i just booked a normal double room. The people there were amazing and really nice, polite and friendly. All the hotel is really clean, flowers everywhere and birds... what to say? Perfect swimmingpool, perfect beach, perfect sleeping, perfect breakfast...

- : maybe the buffet, if u eat it every day u are bored at the end..., if u want to go out and have parties, in may, there are not a lot attractions, but we just wanted to enjoy the pool... :)

We will go again!!

I’ve never met such a lousy and incorrect attitude so far. Our reservation was made and fully paid in march and when we arrived to the hotel we realized that there is no place for us. All rooms were occupied, they sold our room to other people at bigger rate. No matter that we were pretty tired form a long drive and had a kid with us. We were transferred to horrible stinking bungalow instead. It was situated in an unattractive area remote at about 3 km. from Porfi beach and there was no breakfast included. We returned back to Porfi beach, so they found us a better place, it was the same category hotel at least.. However it was our first and the last visit to Greece in general.

I didn't like the attitude of the Porfi Beach Hotel's personal. They have cancelled our reservation half a day before our arrival, even if one day before the cancelling we talked two times by phone and they have confirmed us that the reservation is ok. So we arrived there from a long trip where we found out that they have no available rooms. The manager refused to talk with us, even if this is one of his duties, mentioning that he can do nothing as they have no rooms. It is a 4 stars hotel and their attitude is not the proper one.
