Apollonion Resort & Spa  

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

The Apollonion 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.

Lovely, relaxing, quiet family holiday

Have just spent one week at the Apollonion Resort and Spa with two children 11 and 13. The hotel is spotlessly clean, the rooms are lovely and spacious, the food is very nice, and the staff are very friendly, efficient and hardworking. We visited the restaurant for breakfast and dinner at various different times during service while we were there and never found it too busy, there was never a queue, the staff were always courteous and friendly. The food was good with a selection of traditional Greek food each night plus a couple of theme nights during the week including a Greek night, Pasta night and BBQ night. The bar was lovely with prices typical for a hotel bar I suppose however there was a pre and post dinner cocktail half price offer every night as well as happy hour from 4.00 - 6.00 every day. Contrary to other reviews check out time is mid-day which we found very generous. We liked the fact there was a dress code for the lobby and restaurant, it wasn't strict. We liked that the pool closed at 6.00, most people took this time to change for dinner. We liked the fact the hotel was in a very quiet area, if you want a livelier holiday do your research and go somewhere like Lassi. The Apollonion was exactly what we wanted from our holiday. Xi Beach is a 5-10 minute stroll from the hotel, most days we took the advice from the other reviews, turned left and waded out around the headland to the quieter part of the beach, but we did also go to the busier side and tried a jet bike and sea cycle. We travelled with Thomson and Nick and Jane were very helpful, especially with cheap car hire and a perfect beach recommendation, Petani Beach, well worth the effort. The transfer on the first day consisted of a coach, ferry and then mini bus which was a little arduous after a whole day of travel but it is soon forgotten.More

Julian T,

Very comfortable but overcrowded

Excellent rooms, friendly and kind personnel, bad internet service, moderate breakfast due to very large population in a rather short time of service. You must leave the room at 11:00, one hour earlier than all the other hotels worldwide.More

Beautiful hotel and island

The hotel is simply beautiful! We stayed in one of the little 4person villas with swim up pool. Lovely room and loved having our own little pool, we didn't even use the main pool because of this. Food nice and reasonably good selection, staff friendly too. Not much going on at the hotel and no where outside of the hotel either, just a couple of beach bars. Would recommend getting a taxi to the nearest town or doing an excursion with your tour operator. Spa was excellent one of the best whole body massages I've ever had! More

Lovely hotel

We adore this island and wanted to stay somewhere highly recommended with no possibility of being disappointed. The hotel is lovely - we had a swim up duplex suite which was great for our family of four. This comes highly recommended as it means you have more privacy and peace and quite by the pool if needed. However, the main pool area was lovely too. The food was very good but it would have been nice to have somewhere with waiter service and al cart rather than buffet morning and night. This would have made it a true 5* hotel. Everywhere was very clean and the maid service was brilliant. In fact all the staff were really lovely and very helpful. The happy hour was very well received and pool service great - it would have been nice if there were more staff for this though. Also the wifi is terrible apart from in the reception area - I'm sure this could be easily sorted out. XI beach is very nice but we hired a boat from Carol's husband at the taverner on the left as you walk down to the beach, and discovered fabulous empty beaches and had lots of fun on the boat. Overall a wonderful break and although not rated a five I would have happily given it 4.5 if it wasn't for the wifi, lack of waiters and no al Carte. More


Not what I expected...

I booked this hotel because it had high ratings. But in my opinion far away from 5 star hotel.. Lets start with rooms.. room was clean. I missed the coffe/tea machine which is usual in most 5 stars hotels. Everything else was spot on. Pool area... where on earth did you see to close the pool at 6pm? Sorry, that is a first no go. The sunbeds were for my taste very uncomfortable. Food: Breakfast was ok.. I missed more fresh fruits ( banana, pinnapple, melon...) Dinner.. I hadnt had such a bad food for a long long time. For a 5 star Hotel is this a total no go. Every single day spaghetti, pasta, french fries... sorry but dont you see that 90% of your guest are overweighted? There should be more meat from grill, vegetables.. last year I was on karpathos. We had japanies night, mexican night.. every day something different. A lot of different meat from grill every day, fish.. all you can wish. But in this hotel nothing like that. Disaster Stuff was friendly there is nothing to say. Next was dinner dress code... why you have dress code at reception if you dont look at it at dinner. People are dressed if they were coming from the pool. I havent seen such thing at others 5 star hotels. Sorry but for my a big big no go. The hotel location.... 8km from the nearest town. At the hotel nothing to do. You cant even go for a walk because there is nothing. Fortunately we had a car. Overall i would give 3.5 stars nothing more. Sorry More
