We've just returned from a week at the Aegean Aparthotel, everywhere is spotlessly clean, breakfasts are good with a varied selection, dining area lovely with pleasant staff. The pool bar serves up good food, and a good variety of drinks. The pool area is very pleasant with plenty of sunbeds/tables/parasoles. The staff and the two brothers that own it are pleasant and are either around the pool bar area or in reception and very sociable as is Aris the pug! The rooms are cleaned daily with towels/bedding changed mid-week, they are well furnished with a comfortable bed and the modern bathroom is lovely with THE best shower! Why 4 not 5? well we were allocated room 504 on the ground floor and it was SO COLD,to the point of feeling damp and it smelled fusty, i accept early season can be cool at night but this was a very cold room throughout the day, the sun doesn't get near this room, not even onto the terrace! A gesture of complimentary heating would have been nice but was told we'd have to pay We had plenty of warm bedding but couldn't sit in the room it was so cold..We couldn't move to another room as the hotel was full, had we had a room a few doors down or a balcony we would have given a 5.More
Hidden Gem in Kriopigi
We have thoroughly enjoyed our week stay at Hotel Aegean so far.
The owners are fun and friendly with good English.
The hotel itself is incredibly clean and the beds are nice and firm... Showers are a little cool but the weather is hot enough for that hehe.
The bar area and poolside is beautiful! Sun all through the day and plenty of sun beds to choose from.
Great service at the bar too, awesome cocktails and good selection of other beverages and small bites.
There has been different music every day too which is a plus :)
We felt so welcome and it's a great atmosphere. The guys make real effort and Greek night here was also very entertaining and fun to watch :)
They also went out of their way to make me a veggie burger for the barbeque since I don't eat pork (a big thank you!)
A place we'd certainly recommend at a not too dear price and a place we would come back to! :)
Robyn and Sam ( room 508 :p)More
We came to the Aegean on a last-minute cheap deal last September (slightly late review sorry) and we couldn't have asked for more for the money. The room was really cute and had everything we needed - we didn't spend much time around the pool as we came to Greece for the beautiful beaches and so we spent almost every day travelling to different towns on the bus. Yes there is a steep hill up to the main town but this didn't prove too much of a problem for us, and you must visit the Casablanca bar when you are there - Eddie and the Owner are a real asset. We did have breakfast included in our package here but I believe that it runs very early and we never made it up for it! Aris the Pug is so cute, but kept himself to himself apart from when we arrived when he greeted us in our room!! The owners made good friends with a lot of the guests, however will also just say hi and leave you to your own devices if that's how you operate - as do we. If you are looking for a holiday where you want to spend every day around the pool then I don't think this would be for you as the pool area is not massive, but for someone wanting nice, clean accommodation in nice walking distance of the nearest beach, shops and buses to other towns, this fits the bill perfectly. I would recommend this hotel for a stay in Kriopigi and Halkidiki in general :)More

Great basic hotel
After reading the reviews on the Aegean before we went, we were remaining open minded about what to expect, especially as we had picked up such a cheap package. There was absolutely no reason to be tentative, this hotel was fantastic.
The brothers who run the hotel, Sakis & Stellios are great, friendl & helpful. They are always on hand to help if you need them, I don't think they ever sleep!
The rooms were simply decorated and spotlessly cleaned everyday, as was the rest of the hotel.
The pool area was great, beautiful views, comfortable sun beds (although be careful they do get hot if you don't have a towel down!) & nice cold beer competitively priced. I quite enjoyed the eclectic background music & I didn't find it loud or over baring in the slightest.
We had B&B and found the breakfast to be sufficient to set us up for the day.
The hotel is on a hill which I wouldn't think is too challenging for anyone unless they have specific health issues.
The beach at the bottom of the hill was lovely & quiet, it's a shingle beach so won't be to everyone's taste but we followed the coast round to the left & there were various beaches with something for everyone.
Kriopigi is a lovely little village with plenty of nice bars & restaurants, which we will review separately. The people we met were so friendly & we would definitely visit again & would not want to stay anywhere other than the Aegean.
Also, just a cheeky note to recommend Sammy at Kayak Safari, as it was when we were reading the hotel reviews that we saw a recommendation for him. We will write him a review separately but it was a brilliant day out & well worth doing.More
