TripAdvisor reviewers love this friendly, family-run hotel, which is just a short walk from the beach and bars.
This place is owned and run by 2 brothers. And they’ve made it a high scoring hotel on TripAdvisor. The deep pool is one reason, as is the restaurant, which hosts a barbecue night every week.
There’s a Blue Flag beach 15 minutes’ walk away. It’s a sand-and-pebble number with several tavernas and cafés. And if you don’t fancy the walk, there’s always the little shuttle train.

A relaxed, modern and immaculately clean hotel. The owners are friendly and always around either in reception or by the pool area happy to help. The hotel offers entertainment in the evening a couple of nights a week, a BBQ, local greek dancers and a quiz night. but it isn't forced up on you to take part. The hotel is ideal for a chilled out laid back break, sunbath all day and a couple of drinks in the bar in the evening,More

We stayed here last September for a week. First impressions were of a nice pleasant hotel on a steep hill. Checking in was ok but when we went to our room the bathroom light didnt work and the tv had no signal. The light was repaired but not the tv. The shower head blew on us and there was no hot water. The shower was repaired the next day and we were told that there was no hot water cause we were showering at the same time as everybody else. This wasnt true, it was because the hotel seems to run on solar energy and there had been no sun for three days, why not just tell us that instead of fobbing us off. The maids left our balcony door wide open on the 4th day however being on the top floor we were ok but the next day the front door was left open. The main problem for us was that the owner just stood down by the pool entertaining rather than helping people and if you are not the type of people who want to sit around and talk to him he didnt want to know. Having him staring up your balcony most of the day is creepy also not much point going to the rep cause he seemed to be his best friend and you couldn't speak to him on his own. The town is very small but there are nice restaurants and the larger neighbouring towns were a delight although the bus ride was an eye opener.More

good accommodation overall
Stayed here on a fairly cheap package with Thomson in September 2014, and hotel was a better standard than I was expecting for the price we paid. Room was large with spotlessly clean and new looking bathroom with very good shower, large balcony terrace with a glimpse of the sea, and small fridge and two beds. Breakfast was completely adequate and better than expected after reading a few reviews on here - scrambled egg, beans, fresh bread, cereal, cake, fruit, cheese, ham, greek yoghurt and fruit juice. Owners friendly and helpful. The 'hill' was not an issue in September, but maybe in the peak season when very hot it would have been a mission to walk to and from the beach. The beach was pretty quiet, nice clear water to swim in, and plenty of fish to see too. Lots of great Greek restaurants in Kriopigi (and a few british ones that we avoided) but the best is definitely Anthoulas Restaurant set back from the main road near the church - wonderful Greek food. Also went to Nikos several times and the food was excellent. Downsides were: music playing by the bar and pool from 10am until at least 10pm every day which did not allow for a peaceful sunbathe by the pool. This made us opt for the beach on some days. One day it was country music all day, and it was even turned up louder at one point. There are quite a lot of steps so can be a struggle with bags/suitcases on arrival and departure. There was a bit of the pool water drainage broken/missing by the sun loungers which should have been replaced (if it wasnt near the end of the season it probably would have been mended) and had to carefully avoid falling down it daily. Would consider staying here again mainly to be able to go swimming and snorkelling, and the package was cheap compared to other Greek resorts.More

Probably the best in the area
We are just back from a week at the Aegean Aparthotel and by the looks of it were there at the same time as the reviewer Gary B. My boyfriend and I booked two weeks before we went so it was a last minute deal for us and as is my way I read EVERY review on here before we went. The hotel itself is nice - everything was clean, tidy, lots of staff always about the place looking busy. Our room was cleaned every day and fresh sheets and towels once. It would have been nice to have the towels changed more often but that's pretty standard I suppose. Breakfast seems to have been a gripe for a few reviewers but we thought it was fine. It's not fine dining but then nor would you expect it to be for the price. Scrambled egg, sausages, boiled eggs, bread, cheese, ham, cereals and what I think might have been madeira cake plus juice tea and coffee. Certainly enough to set us up for the day. I would 100% agree with Gary B about the music and actually my partner and I only spent a few hours by the pool on our last day really and it marred our use of the balcony a bit. I was not aware there had been complaints about it and if there had then I agree the owners should have turned it down. We are both in our late 30s and there were younger couples there but I didn't see anyone who looked as though they were partying hard to the music! There is a little beach in Kriopigi and the hill was not a problem for us at all. There is not much down there and it was not the nicest beach we saw all week but it was peaceful. There are quite a few tavernas in the village and for the most part we avoided the ones on the main road as they were a bit more burger and chips than we were looking for. Based on reviews I saw on here we ventured off to the church to find the taverna there which was gorgeous, authentic Greek food, amazingly cheap and really pretty. Definitely worth a visit. The best place we went to for food was Bistrot which is a really lovely Italian which also does Greek dishes but be warned the portions are HUGE! This makes it good value if, like us, you share a greek salad and a main dish. The owners are fantastic and very attentive without being overbearing at all. We went with Thomson and did the Sandy Shores boat excursion which was I think about 40 Euros each and was worth it. We also arranged separately a kayak safari which I cannot rave enough about. I am not that fit and was worried this might test me but it is the best 50Euro you will spend. It was me and my partner and the guide Sammy who was great. We paddled virtually to the very top of the peninsular, stopping at several beaches along the way which we had to ourselves as they are only accessible from the sea. Sammy provided snorkelling gear which was a good move and he knew the best places to see different wildlife. I'll probably do him a separate review as he deserves it but I would strongly recommend doing that. I don't think we would go to this resort again really just because we have done it now and without a car there was not a huge amount locally. For anyone like us who just needs a week to unwind though, I would recommend it.More

Almost...but not quite good enough!
Just back from a pleasant week at Aegean Aparthotel. Great value for money, lovely rooms and breakfast was fine given the price we paid. Kriopigi itself is forgettable (a great place to sit at the side of a busy road and watch the traffic). Beaches are OK but the walk is not suited for anyone with mobility/health issues...Back to the hotel.........quiet location away from the main road with very informal staff...maybe a bit too informal. It would have been nice to see someone smartly dressed...all a bit too casual. Never the less everyone was helpful and polite. However our biggest problem, and it seemed to be everyone else's gripe too, was the 14 hours of music each day. 10:00 AM until midnight non stop music. Regular request to turn it down worked for half an hour or so then it was back! The majority of guests were 40 -60 years of age, not 18 - 30 and made us wonder if the music was for the bar staff or for the guests? Management were approached by several guests but the music just kept coming. Short sighted management couldn't see they were driving people away from the pool/bar and down to the beach where they were spending their money. Most people have personal music players and can choose what they listen to and when; stop imposing this on your guests. I'm sure everyone would have appreciated a little, suitable background music maybe 7:00 PM to 11:00PM at the bar bar. but this was just too much. Sorry ..almost ...but not quite good enough!More
