Deluxe double room sleeps up to three with twin beds, armchair-bed and a terrace with a garden view. With bathrobes, a daily maid service, free Wi-Fi and LAN internet connection, with guests using their own equipment.
Myself and my two children visited this hotel . At first I thought it may be a little remote and quiet but it turned out to be the place where we could all truly be together . This hotel is spotlessly clean and well run . The staff are friendly and helpful . The pool opens at 10 and shuts at 6 pm . I personally would have liked a little longer by the pool to enjoy the sun going down .
Watch out if travelling with Thomson .... They very much promote the sun cruise but don't warn you that you could end up for half a day of the trip on xi beach ( the beach that is a 7 minute walk from hotel ) .
Would like to thank the hotel and its staff for a wonderful holiday More
Lovely relaxing hotel
Our whole family 10 of us spent 14 nights at the Apollonion from Aug 12-25th this year it was a fantastic hotel in every way. The cleanliness, food and comfort and staff were great. The outside area was always kept very clean and tidy. There was happy hour every day from 4 til 6 which meant all drinks were half price( great bonus.)
If we had any gripe at all it was the swimming pool closing at 6 o'clock it just seemed a bit early especially if you had been out for the day and needed a cool down in the pool.More
The Apollonion resort is clean,friendly and very well run hotel,the only issue with the room we had was the balcony which was too small and didn't get the sun , room 257,the food was fine but not fantastic but the staff were excellent .the only issue was the pool hours didn't open until 10am and closed at 6 pm ,xi beach is only a 5 minute walk and is excellent for swimming and water sports, baywatch beach bar has great food and fantastic cocktails and the staff are really friendly especially the young blonde girl who served us most of the time ,More

Fantastic Relaxing Holiday.e
Firstly, many thanks to all the staff at the hotel and spa for making this a fantastic and relaxing holiday.
We booked 10 nights through Thomson however upgraded to a suite maisonette which gave us our own jacuzzi, terrace, sunbeds and shared pool with another six suites -- so pleased we did this as it made our holiday and gave us that added relaxation we were looking for.. Speaking to others all rooms were to a high standard.
First time we have booked through Thomson and I found all the reps at our hotel and the airport very helpful and at hand to answer any questions we had..
The transfer to the hotel took approx one and a half hours incorporating a ferry trip which broke up the journey.. You are requied to leave the coach and board the ferry taking your own luggage so keep this in mind for elderley or young travellers. A coach is then waiting to take you to the hotel.
Restaurant was well managed and we found the food to be of an excellent standard both at breakfast and dinner. Buffet style however minimal ques.
We did not use the main pool however there always appeared to be sunbeds available even when we went to breakfast at 9am so not the usual hastle of people getting up early to reserve them..
We found the other eatery and main bar to be of high standard and enjoyed the discounts on the drinks between 4pm and 6pm - great to try the cocktails on offer.
The Spa was also very well managed and we both enjoyed a lovely massage however wished we had used the facilities earlier than we did - treat yourself its well worth it...
Entertainment was relaxed and consisted of music in the bar and the offer of the outdoor cinema which we used twice and enjoyed it...No animation team at this hotel which is what we wanted hence why you feel so relaxed..
Some things to be aware of -
Wifi is over subscribed and you will not always be able to connect - mornings or late at night appeared to be better. Not a major issue for us.
English TV consisted of just news channels - at times it would have been good to have some additional choice if required.
No tea or coffee facilities in your room - bring your travel kettle if this is important to you.
Majority of our holiday was spent very local using the facilities of the hotel and nearby beach however we did go on one excursion through Thomson which was the 'Sun Cruise'.. A fun day aboard a boat, swimming in the sea, various water activities and a BBQ on the beach while relaxing in the sun.
Nearby Xi beach offered great watersports which were good fun and reasonably priced.. For smaller children there was a number of infltables in the sea to play on.
A couple of tavernas offering food and drink at all times were available and we often used these when we had a walk after dinner...
As others have said Lixouri is a taxi or bus ride away which gives you some alternative tavernas and cafes to try.. The ice cream parlour called 'I scream' is excellent and offers a great choice, all home made on the premises.. We went over the ferry to Argostoli twice on our stay and ate there one night as we wanted to do some shopping.. - some great restaurants especially in the main square.
If you are looking for a relaxing holiday, using the hotel facilities and nearby beach with the odd excursion this is a great place to stay..
Thanks again to all the staff.More

Really beautiful hotel!
This hotel is really quite beautiful, extremely clean, roomy, quiet and in a stunning location. The beach is a 5-10 minute walk away and there is a small village shop near by to get snacks and water etc. If you wanted to go 'shopping' or visit restaurants then there is a bus which goes to the nearest town and runs a few times a day (only in the summer months I think). There isn't much entertainment in an evening at the hotel although there is an outdoor cinema and you can also walk down to the bars on the beach. The staff are very friendly and professional. The Wi-Fi at the hotel was rubbish and would never let you log on because 'too many people were logged in', but this really is the only bad thing about this hotel. Would recommend this hotel and the island to anyone!More
