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.

We stayed here for two weeks. The second week was the first of the school holidays. As such there were a lot more kids than the first. As stated below, this was far from a problem. Children of all ages got on brilliantly and played really well in the pool. That said, there is not a lot else for them to do other than one pool table and some did look rather bored particularly in the evenings. If you want to go for a relaxing holiday as a couple then I'd suggest you go during term-time. We stayed in Room 101 on the ground floor, so no view but this was a very large room being on the corner. Comfortable bed and excellent shower. Extra pillows provided on request. Far from the music round the pool being "booming" as a previous review stated, it was a suitable volume during the day and turned down around 11-30pm. The cleanliness was the best we have ever known in any hotel we have stayed in. All staff who work here are a credit to the two guys who run the place. We found all staff including them to be friendly and amiable. Breakfast was fine and never a scrum. Yes, you may have to wait 30 seconds for a toaster but the food on offer was fine and perfectly acceptable by European standards. I think the owners are missing a trick with the bar prices. The drinks and food were amongst the most expensive we saw while away and on speaking with other guests it was clear that it would be used a lot more if the costs were more reasonable. Whilst we liked the hotel, I have to say we were rather disappointed with Kriopigi itself. Rather than a Greek village, it is essentially a small town on a very busy through road and nothing like any of the islands we have stayed on. The road could be quite dangerous to cross and we saw several near misses during our time there. For this reason alone we will not be returning here, no fault of the hotel itself.More
The two brothers that own the hotel were very helpful and could not of done anymore to make our stay a great one. the staff were fantasic always willing to help no matter how small it was. The hotel was very clean and you could always see a member of staff cleaning, the pool area was spotless. Our room was very clean with a sea view and a good view over the pool bar and surrounding area. The walk up to Kriopigi is steep and takes about 10 mins but there is a good selection of bars and restaurants, the shops are ok with most of them selling tourist goods. The walk to the beech is down a steep hill and takes about 15-20 mins and about 30 mins to walk back, the beech is a large strip of sand wit two beech bars along it.More
For us this hotel is definitely underrated, for the price we paid in the school holidays we couldn't fault our stay. The hotel is on a steep hill but after a few times it gets easier i think! the hill back from the beach isn't as fun tho and i would recommend the train, if it comes! The owners were lovely and the bar staff couldn't do enough for us, make sure you go to the Greek night, lots of fun and some daft dancing. The room is basic, but the shower is lovely and the fridge keeps things cold as expected! Our towels were only changed once during our stay but no major issue. The maids did come early and some mornings we were still asleep so this probably didn't help matters. We took some plastic cups and plates with us, would recommend this especially if you are buying lunch to eat back to the hotel. The pool area was clean and tidy, the staff didn't stop cleaning! bar prices were similar to the resort centre so not a problem there, the pizza was particularly nice as well as Rosa's mojto. Most beds had large leather cushions which were very comfy, however it is worth taking an extra towel or t shirt with you as they are long and most towels didn't cover the full bed and in the sun they did get hot! There was lots of wasps around, we think due to the area, a few people did get stung so take some medication with you just in case. While there we did 2 trips, a boat trip with and to Athos both orgainsed by the rep Luke. Athos was beautiful and is worth a trip a little bit more going on and some lovely restaurants and cocktail bars. The village/town of Kriopigi was perfect for us and just enough restaurants to try during our stay. We recommend Hagiati- Athena Taverna, this amazing family run restaurant was amazing and fantastic value for money, the bistro was great along with restaurant in the old town- however try and avoid the weekends here. For cocktails we loved Ostria - the ice balls in particular had us entertained for hours! If you have booked here, enjoy! We did - a chilled week away, good food, nice people and beautiful beaches!More
Excellent as always!
Our 6th time here and still love the Aegean. Fantastic staff, clean rooms, great pool, atmosphere very friendly. Stelios & Sakis are excellent hosts and will do anything to make your stay here as enjoyable and comfortable as possible. Big thank you again to the lovely Rose & Frankie two amazing, very hard working members of staff. The biggest love is for Aris he is the real boss haha!! Looking forward to our next visit.More
Finally stopped laughing at some of the reviews on here!!! I wonder what people did before wifi and the advent of the English breakfast abroad. Hotel is absolutely spotless and staff, including the brothers, are very friendly and helpful. Pool bar is pricy but I never saw anybody forcing people to use it. It is also clearly advertised as an aparthotel and not self catering apartment hence there being no cooking facilities. Simple if you read and understand these things. Kriopigi has enough places to eat and drink and the beach and sea are both stunning. Great place to relax and unwind in comfortable and clean surroundings even with my kids😁More
