Apollonion Resort & Spa  


The Apollonian Resort & Spa is stylish, tranquil and close to a sandy beach.

The Apollonian Resort & Spa is set in the countryside outside of Lixouri, so it’s really quiet. What’s more, it’s just 5 minutes’ walk from sandy Xi Beach.

Avant-garde sculptures spot the hotel and the bedrooms are all boutique chic. To top things off, TripAdvisor reviewers crowned it the best hotel in Lixouri for 2014.

Excellant !

The Apollonion is a superb modern hotel in a quiet setting with easy walk to the sandy beach. We stayed for one week in July with teenage daughter and her friend. Good size rooms, lovely pool, good restaurant with great food. Above all, the staff in all departments were helpful and certainly gave service with a smile! Xi beach is just a 5 min walk and we enjoyed turning right and going along the the beach bar which played modern music ( I sound old!) but very reasonable prices for snacks n drinks with a beautiful view of the bay. Water sports for hire too. Only slight gripe is that the evening entertainment was a little tame and didn't excite our older teenagers so worth getting a ferry across to Argostili for evening out. Thompson reps also very helpful and we had two good excursions, one round the island and one on a boat with crazy greek captain who moored us off the beach and we had to jump off and wade to shore for the the bbq, great fun. Also nice mix of nationalities at the hotel, not dominated by Brits or others. Great relaxing holiday, we shall return ; )More

On arrival we were warmly welcomed and throughout our two week stay all the staff were fantastic! Polite, helpful and friendly. The rooms were spacious, modern and clean, we were also forutnate enough to have a fnatastic view over the pool and on to the sea in the distance. Food at breakfast and dinner was great and the food on offer at 'La Pergola' during the day was awesome! I was dissapointed with the amount of kids at the hotel when Thomsons market the hotel towards couples, but I suppose it can't be helped druing the summer holidays. The building looks great, but without it's fantastic staff it's just a building. I can't commend them enough. I look forward to returning sometime in the futrue.More

Beautiful Hotel

Really nice hotel, we stayed here for 15 days in september 2013. We had a great time, very clean hotel. Good food, very nice resort (including museum and cinema). Rooms are big and we had good beds, nice bathroom. Wifi is free on the complete complex, also on the rooms. Only problem is that it was a little slow during the day (too much traffic). The hotel is near the beach (5 minutes - walking). The surroundings of the hotel are not very special. It takes 10 minutes to drive (car/taxi) to the main street of Lixouri city,More

A lovely, relaxing holiday.

We had a wonderful time at the Apollonion hotel. We stayed there for 11 nights in mid August and were pleased with overall experience. The room was lovely and well kept - made up daily to look welcoming after a long day at the beach or pool. Air con was excellent, cooling the room down almost instantaneously. Comfortable beds and the electronic blind outside the balcony door was a great idea to get a proper black out blind effect. An empty Mini fridge was excellent to store bottles of water bought locally in. Staff were amazing, front desk welcoming and informative. Restaurant staff worked tirelessly morning and evening, same staff every day (11 nights holiday!) and the maître d was always very smiley and tried to find the best seats available in the restaurant. The food was fantastic, every night there was the same refreshing salad selection but the rest was varied and very tasty. Lots of choice at breakfast too. The pool and grounds were very well kept and beautiful. Plenty of sun beds which were comfortable and most had a good amount of shade all day as they were speared out enough to move the sun beds as necessary. Just out of the hotel and left down the road is a lovely beach - 5 min walk away. Lovely red sand, a beautiful, clear shallow sea and some clay rocks that you can moisten in the sea and rub all over you like you would at a spa. Great for your skin! There are also a selection of tavernas serving some lovely local cuisine and a little shop where we bought our bottles of water to store in our mini fridge. The gem of the holiday was an amazing taverna called Antonello's at Xi. It is situated between the hotel and the beach and serves the best local food at very reasonable prices. We ate there 3 times and would have more if we had discovered it sooner! We also went on a day trip around the island through the holiday company 'Thomson'. We booked the premiere discovery and were not disappointed. We saw all of the highlights of the island and enjoyed a very tasty lunch and coffee stop too. Very worthwhile. All in all a fantastic holiday, with beautiful weather, accommodation, food and relaxation. We would definitely recommend it.More
