Set on a hill back off from the main road. Peaceful waking up hearing the birds in the morning
Top floor part pool / sea side view. Plenty of green outlook
Great beaches around Halkidiki peninsula
There are plenty of places to eat go up the hilly road and turn right.
The hotel brothers that owned the place were a little grumpy to be fair and often watching guests. Probably bored had nothing better to do
The hotel set on a hillside so no good if you are not fit and able to be fair
The wifi was hit and miss unless you sat in the lobby
Overall, decent hotel, clean and peaceful setting. Bit of a walk to the beach down the road, but that's ok if your fit and healthy. Hire a car and check out the surrounding beaches around the peninsula to view the lovely beaches. I would recommend for couples, definitely not for party goersMore

We stayed here for the last week of the season and were allocated the room directly over the bar. It was a nice room with a lovely en suite shower room , but my goodness, it was noisy! Aside from the bar users ( the first night being the worst until 2am), the swing door that the staff use to access behind the bar sounded like a bouncing ball every time it was swung open backwards and forwards. Also, the automated bar shutter being operated at 7.30am and anything up to 2am the next morning for opening and closing really disturbed our sleep :-(
The breakfast was very mediocre with very little choice.
The food from the pool bar was very tasty when we ate there for lunch when we couldn't get out due to the rain!
On the sunny days other guests persisted in getting up early to reserve sun beds which spoils it for everyone else but maybe the hotel could provide a few more and introduce a policy of no sun bed reservation as many hotels do now.
As for Krioplgi itself, we travelled here 10 years ago but found the town shabbier now and had we been staying for longer than a week we would have struggled to find the variety of tavernas etc we like to experience for our evening meal.
(The photo of the hotel on this site is misleading as it shows it right on the beach; it is not, and in reality is about a 10 minute walk downhill)More

Good budget hotel
Check in quick and easy, no passports required for retention. Look at the Thompson board to the right of the tv on the wall opposite reception for info, will prob tell you more than the welcome meeting. Reception not manned for the rest of our hol, you'll have more luck at the pool bar (not professional), and from talking to other guests the hotel is not locked or again manned at night so security is an issue. Excellent sized room, we were on the ground floor, long and narrow but no flood problems as were experienced by some other rooms in the exceptional storms that occurred on our break.
Not suitable for those with mobility issues, no lifts, hotel over several floors.
I like a firm mattress but this was beyond uncomfortable,hard mattress with springs digging in my back. Left me with back pain that took a week home to recover from, pillows equally uncomfortable, lumpy, I'm sorry to say. Another thing is that you can't turn the lights off from the bed(s), we had 3 singles in our room, wall switches cannot be reached from the beds - suggestion - side lamps. Also a strange way of presenting a room, top sheets folded on top of the bed with the towels on arrival. First time I have ever had to make our bed(s) on arrival.
Hair dryer in bathroom did not work but not a problem because I always take my own. Don't expect complimentary shower gels etc., there's none, also our sink was very slow to drain, I blame Greek plumbing.
Loads of hangers and a fair sized wardrobe, good drawer space too.
First time I've ever been abroad and not been able to get Sky news on the TV or some British channels- as we had a few storms we unfortunately spent some time watching TV.
Previous reviews already commented on hotel position, hill etc. so no added comments.
Safe deposit in room at 15 Euros for 1 week, 25 for 2. Fridge provided and air con tho we didn't need to use that.
Because rooms form a 'L' shape around the pool/garden/bar area it can get very noisy. Also in high season I wouldn't expect to get a lounger. 41 rooms, accommodating on average 2 people and only 40 loungers - you can do the maths.More

Holiday was booked through Thompson's and we flew out of Bristol. Transfer time to the hotel was 1 hour 10 mins and we were the first drop.
Greeted at the hotel by Stakis and Stellios in the reception area where we checked in and was given room 507. Front door near hotel entrance so not too far to take cases ideal.
Room was clean with a nice balcony and view of the pool and countryside. Could have done with a couple of glasses in room and an extra bin apart from that very nice. We bounced a couple of glasses from the bar. WiFi in our room was OK but we where close to the reception also OK in the Bar area.
Pool and bar area was nice and the staff (Frank and Rosie) marvellous. We spent the first day and a half there. Pint of Mythos 2.5 euros and ouzo 2 euros. However this area was spoilt by a few other residents who started to put there towels on the sunbeds. This is OK if you are going to use the sun bed but in some cases they did not use the bed all day. I would say that in the grass area they could do with some more parasols as this was the most exposed area. We went to the beach every day after that.
The beach was lovely 6 euros for 2 x sunbeds a parasol, table with coffee and water thrown in a bargain. No body behind us no one in front just the sea like a mill pond. The Sun bed owner had a cafe and a camping site so we eat lunch there a couple of days the portions where large and nice food. No menu you just have to ask. There is a land train that will take you down and bring you back to the hotel. We walked down the hill in the morning about 10 mins and got the train back in evening 1 euro each.
At night we went to eat in the main strip about a 5 min walk up hill. Plenty of places to eat but would struggle if I was there for a fortnight. Found the food to be of excellent quality and did not have a bad meal. For drinks it was Casablancaâs great staff and atmosphere. The first night we went back to the hotel for a drink but the next morning I overheard another resident talking to another and moaning about the noise at 00:30. We went to Casablanca after that although the owners of the hotel didn't tell us to be quite. On Wednesday night they hold a Greek night 12.50 euros with BBQ and dancers really good night and great value.
The breakfast in the hotel is adequate which will cover most tastes. Plenty of coffee and some hot food and toast what more do you want.
We went on one trip the turtle island boat trip. Had a great day.
Really enjoyed are chilled out holiday and hospitality was brilliant at the hotel . Will definitely be going back. Next time will be hiring a car to explore the area.More
Fabulous hotel. Clean comfortable.
The brothers that own it are very friendly and Liverpool football club mad.
A must for all lovers of relaxing Greek holidays.
We visited for a week and had a wonderful relaxing time. Hotel on a hill and beach even further downhill but you're on holiday in Greece so what's the rush??
All in all a 10 out of 10 holiday all round. More
