Five pools, three restaurants and design-led interiors are all part of the package at this brand-new hotel.
This hotel opened its doors for the first time in May 2015. You’ll find it in Kalives, in between the Kassandra and Sithonia peninsulas. It’s set right next to a beach, which means you can easily swap the pool for the sea.
Because the hotel is brand new, you can expect contemporary good looks. The family-sized bedrooms are ultra-modern, with a colour palette of white and light green.

Perfect family stay
I have to give this place 5 stars...perfect for a first family holiday.....all low rise with no obvious health and safety issues...great beds....food very good loads of choice, all well cooked...we paid for a suite with hot tub - well worth the £450 upgrade...use of baby club highly recommended, £50 for 6 x 2 hour sessions...girls who work there great...room beautiful kept very clean...cot provided is longer length with comfy mattress and bedding, again perfect no issues, baby slept as at home....take your own baby cutlery.... hotel looks like new....1 hour transfer, not worth private transfer as this is the only stop...no other charges hidden....didn't come across any on who mentioned a stomach bug...market on wed a bit sparse not sure if worth 30 Euro cost in taxi....literally my only moan would be that 2 bits of equipment in the playground, the car and seesaw are very slightly damaged, cost 100 euro to fix....staff also great...no sure what the earlier moaners are on about....good value at £200 a day for a suite and yeah it can't compete with the Ritz £900 a night..but it does an excellent job at what is designed for family holidays...no issues at all.....they also put a bottle of fizz in the room as it was our honeymoon....cheersMore
Not what we paid for - Private Pool Con
We have just arrived back from a weeks stay and although we had a nice relaxing week in the sun we do feel somewhat ripped off! As a youngish couple with no children some may think we were slightly mad to select a family resort but the main selling point for us was the private pool and 5 star rating. On arrival at around 14.00 the first thing we noticed was that there was no sun on our pool and terrace. What is the point of your own private area if there's no sun, we may as well have had a week in England (ok maybe a bit extreme). We paid over £400 for the upgrade at the time of booking and feel extremely ripped off. Whilst we had the sun all morning by 12 we had to lay on the very edge of the pool to catch the last rays. It is worth noting that the rooms are lovely though, fresh and bright. The resort has been designed very badly and this affects a lot of the private pool and swim up rooms. Thomson/TUI really need to explain this on their website. We complained and requesting to be moved but got the usual response that they were fully booked. There seemed to be a lot of empty rooms to us. The rep left us a note in our room to explain, he couldn't even speak with us face to face, we never heard from him again but then we didn't chase the complaint as we wanted to enjoy our holiday and not spend the week feeling stressed and chasing people. Luckily one of the pools nearby was pretty quiet most days, I suspect given the time of year, so we would spend the afternoons here. The pool areas are nice and yes the water is that cold it takes your breath away but once you're in and acclimatised they were lovely and refreshing in the 30 degree heat. There were always plenty of sunbeds, although not 5 star sun beds, in my experience these have always been cushioned, but nice enough. The bar staff did walk around on occasions and bring drinks which was lovely and made it feel more like a 5 star. We are not really beach people, thankfully as the beach is nothing to rave about, beach/swim shoes would be need for children as it's not the softest/cleanest underfoot. The water sports team were lovely and helpful offering a good variety, we did the parasailing and I can highly recommend this, even though I'm scared of heights. As for the rest of the resort, the staff were all lovely and it was very well maintained through out (2 days of grass cutting and hedge trimming was rather enjoying though, invest in quieter equipment!), the restaurants and food were defiantly not 5 star, amen to wear trousers does not make this a 5 star restaurant, a totally unnecessary rule at this resort. I am a bit of a foodie where as the other half just eats for fuel. Whilst I did in the whole always find something to eat we found lunchtime was better food so tended to eat well then. The evening meal in the main restaurant was mainly dry and tough, thank goodness for chips and Greek Salad. The atmosphere is not relaxing at all, it can be quite loud, we spent no more than 30 mins having our evening meal, its definitely a 'dine and dash' restaurant. Outside the resort there is nothing around so we hired a car for the day, there's a rental desk at the hotel which made it easy to arrange and the price was reasonable too. Halkidiki is a beautiful region, we found some gorgeous beaches and a lovely harbour where we had lunch. It was nice to take time eating and enjoying a meal. This probably sounds like we didn't have a nice week but we did as it's what you make of it. Would we go back, No not to Blue Lagoon but Yes to visiting Halkidiki again. More
OK so where to start??? Room lovely and clean, bed very comfortable. Cleaned daily and towels changed daily, bedding changed every alternate day. Food was fine, large variety so there was always something to find whether a hefty plate full :) or something light. The whole place was kept exceptionally clean both inside/outside areas. The best thing about this hotel is the staff - exceptional !!! couldn't do enough for you, always pleasant and polite, bar staff, restaurant staff, cleaning staff everyone and all work so hard. Love the fact there was never an issue with sunbeds either by the pools or on the beach no matter what time of day you went, there was always sunbeds available. Beach/pool towels provided which is great as this saves space in suitcase :) beach kept very clean, sea lovely and inviting. Really cannot understand why some people have rated this Hotel with 1 / 2 star, however there are some people who no matter what is done for them is never enough. There are no amenities outside the hotel apart from a couple of local bars within a 10/15 min walk and taxis are available should you want to go further afield. however this was mentioned in the location of the hotel description so we were aware of this before we went as I would imagine everyone is. We had a lovely 10 days here, would return and would definitely recommend :)More
September Family Sun....
We traveled first week of September, it's actually the second time we have been here. You cannot fault the staff here, they are in the main very accommodating, friendly and great with kids. Last year, everything seemed fresh and new, however this year it seemed a little...used. Although a new bar had opened near the beach which was great to escape the 'singing'. It was also the second time we booked with a private pool, the main reason we booked this hotel....all inclusive but the benefit of your own space, ideal with the security of the kids napping at midday - this time a disaster and a total waste of money - this isn't down to the staff but rather the design, so hopefully this review will help people considering this option to check before they book. Last year, we booked a private pool which had the orientation facing the sea, this position meant sun from early morning until 6:00 p.m - all day basicially, great for the kids and meant the pool was warmer as a result. This year....we used the pool once.....once! It was absolutely freezing, the pool was east facing, so by midday the sun was completely gone...you couldn't sit on the sun lounges as it was cold or go in the pool. We went in and the kids cried and their jaws chattering.....waste of money. All of the benefits we experienced the previous year were gone. We asked if we could move or pay for an upgrade but was fully booked apparently....not sure I believed that. This was a huge disappointment as it was the main reason we booked here again. Had we known we would have booked elsewhere. However, the kids still enjoyed the holiday. The food is okay....enough choice. I had had better and to others points it's not a 5 star...definitely not this year as parts of it (seating) could do with recovers. As I say, staff are great and I'm sure those people that got a room / pool facing toward the sea were made up! Unfortunately whilst we enjoyed the holiday it fell short of our expectations and a second time will not become a third.More
First All Inclusive Experience
I could write an essay on the ins and outs of our one week stay, but here is a shorter versions of reasons you may, or may not want to stay at this hotel:- Good points:- 1. Very family friendly, as a parent you can feel comfortable here. 2. The range of buffet food is extensive, and will cater to most tastes, child section with low level products is a nice touch 3. The quality of accommodation and cleaning is excellent. 4. Very close to the beach. 5. No traffic, the staff drive around the site in electric golf buggies. 6. Staff are very friendly and helpful Bad Points:- 1. As the food is pre-prepared and kept warm for the buffet, it stews and turns to mush, good for stews, not good for fish, or chips. 2. I drank one 'inclusive' cocktail. It was probably the worst drink I have ever tasted so did not repeat the experience. If you like your drink cheap and strong this will not be a problem. 3. Paid 12 euro for three bottles of local Alfa beer, a bit confusing why I had to pay for a 'local' product, and four euro is quite pricey for a beer in Greece. 4. The pre-book only onsite 'restaurants' green and grill, and taverna are disappointing, the food is much the same as the main buffet. 5. There is really nothing within walking distance of the hotel, if you want to experience Greek culture/life, this is not the holiday for you. Overall I probably would not stay at this hotel/resort again as I know Greece has lots more to offer than the all inclusive experience, but that does not mean this is a bad AI resort, far from it, I am sure it rates highly amongst what is locally available. I would definitely recommend you visit Nea Moudania (taxi from hotel) to eat out and try to do a trip to Ouranopolis for a Mount Athos cruise (about 90 minutes by car) if you can. Please also remember that Greece is still experiencing economic crisis, be polite to the staff and tip well.More
