Telis please help

You've helped in the past hope you can help again. I am looking to book Despotiko Hotel in Sithonia Halkidiki this summer in August. Do you know this hotel or have you heard any information about it so that you can pass it on to us.

Thank you.

Despotiko hotel is located at Tristinika area in Sithonia peninsula. I haven't stayed there, so I cannot comment on its amenities, but Tristinika beach is one of the best beaches in Halkidiki (hence, one of the best beaches in Greece). Thick sand and crystal clear water make this beach ideal for relaxed vacation. There are a couple of problems though:

- Tristinika is not a resort, so there are a few and scattered tavernas, bars etc. (Ethnik bar at its northernmost edge is by far the best). You will need a car to visit nearby villages such as Toroni, Porto Koufo or Neos Marmaras.

- Mosquitoes! Be prepared for battle, as the magnificent beach is part of an extended ecosystem, which also contains a lagoon and marshes, ideal breeding grounds for mosquitoes. Repellents are a must.
