My friend and I booked this as a last minute holiday and on a tight budget so we weren't expecting much. Our first impression was good but the more we got to know the hotel and the staff the more we realised what a unique and special place it was!

Our room was basic but clean with stunning views across the mountains and ocean. The views from the pool bar were even more spectacular and the food was to die for, authentic, tasty, huge portions and reasonably priced. Always go for the special (especially the mousakka and its magical qualities).

It was the staff staff though who really made our holiday. The whole family were warm and welcoming. There was also Costa, the bar man (Robert De-Niro looky likey) he was a little grumpy at first but proved to be charming and hilarious. A really warm character and always willing to sit and drink into the early hours imparting his Greek philisophical knowledge. George, the owner, quietly monitored the goings on but was always there if you needed him, with amazing English and a wealth of interesting facts about the Greek language. Very funny but very dry.

The beach is a 5 minute walk from the pool bar and is a secluded paradise. Sun, sea, sand and donuts during the day and shooting stars on the moonlit evenings.

If you want to see the real Halkidikii while there I would reccomend hiring a car, we did so through the Thompson rep and got a great deal. Sithonia, the middle prong, is unspoilt and truly beautiful, great for a beach day. And why not pick up a watermelon from one of the many fresh fruit producers on the roadside?

Thesoloniki is the nearest city (2nd largest in Greece) it is a hip and busstling location where you must soak up the cafe culture whilst enjoying a frappe or two. You should also visit the nearby shopping centre (Cosmos) which is has all the latest shops and brands as well as a busstling food court with a wide range of food and drink on offer; fast food in Greece being much better than most of what I can cook at home!

Nea Modina is a beautful waterside village, perfect for a lazy sea food lunch with a caraffe of wine.

Nights are best spent either at the pool bar or in the nearby village (only a 15 minute walk away) which is frequented by locals on holiday rather than just British tourists. The BEST taverna there is called Anthulas and is like walking into a fairy tale.

If you fancy something a little more lively then visit Kalithea, a 5 minute drive from Kriopiggi. Lovely cosmopolitan italian restaurant with sea views and numerous bars and tavernas.

I would thoroughly reccomend this hotel to anyone who wants to get away from it all and experience authentic Greece.

My boyfriend and I stayed here in August. Having read all the good reviews, we booked a last minute deal and were really looking forward to it. Although we booked everything independently, we did pay for a Thomson coach to the resort. The coach dropped us off in the middle of the village and we were left standing like two strays, hoping a mini bus would come for us as the Rep had promised.

Eventually it did, and we were dropped off at reception. We were greeted by a British lady, who merely pointed the direction our rooms were in and then left us to it. We'd been placed in the basement, and had to make our way down the steps with our cases carefully as the light was broken there on that first night (I'd highly recommend a keyring torch - we made full use of ours!).

When we entered our room we found it to be clean, if basic (which we were expecting) but incredibly hot - the air conditioning unit wasn't working. We headed to the pool bar for some water and asked if we could possibly have another room (we didn't like being in the basement and our 'sea view' was mainly of some plants. We were told the hotel was full so it wasn't possible...which would have been fine, except the hotel appeared half empty all week. We then asked for help with the air conditioning and were given a new remote control, which had no effect. Returning to the pool bar again (there was no one on reception, aside from at check-in, all week) we explained this and George accompanied us, huffing and smoking, into our room (where he continued to smoke as he expressed confusion over why it wouldn't work). Eventually, he told us he was going to get his colleague, who would know what to do. We waited, and waited...no one came. Eventually, the pool bar closed so we couldn't even locate anyone to help. After waiting until gone midnight we attempted to sleep in a room that was incredibly hot and stuffy, and with the company of a mosquito that did not seem to mind the repellant at all.

We only got the air conditioning fixed the next day after taking the problem to the hotel's Thompson rep and did not at any point receieve an apology, or anything else. We found that the staff were like that the whole week - they spent most of their time in the pool bar, and did not seem to want to help with queries or problems. Not that we raised any after that first night.

The breakfast was adequate, changing on a daily pattern: eggs, oregano bread, cake in addition to the staples of cereal, bread, cheese, meat and vegetables. The squash like juice isn't that nice but was to be expected. The rooms were cleaned regularly.

The walk to the beach is a little perilous but only around ten minutes and the beach is entirely worth it. There are a few sunbeds/ umbrellas (available at 6 euro/ day) near the path to the hotel but we walked a little further down and set up camp under the shade of some pine trees. We basically had that stretch of the beach to ourselves and it was idyllic: quiet and beautiful. The shingle near the waterline can be a little hard on the feet but the water is beautifully clear, warm and filled with multi coloured fish. There are no amenities on that stretch of the beach but a 'donut man' comes round regularly, selling pastries (the chocolate donuts are delicious).

The pool bar has stunning views of the coastline and prices aren't too bad, but the village is cheaper and the tavernas there didn't get our orders wrong, like the hotel staff did. Also, whatever we asked for off the menu didn't seem to be available. Every time. So we'd ask what was an were inevitably given the option they wanted to serve. At no point were we given a lift to the village (which is quite a walk), despite making a real effort to be friendly, speak Greek and not cause any problems.

The only time George showed any real interest in us was when we were leaving and he told us he'd see us next year. Not likely! It's not a terrible hotel, expecially for the price of a last minute deal, but the service and accommodation leave a lot to be desired.

We stayed at Poseidon View Hotel in late September and the poor or terrible reviews are the closest to the real thing.

The managment of the hotel during our stay was so bad that we moved hotel after a few days along with at least 4 other couples.

The owner and some of his family who were staying at the allowed their children to run around unsupervised with the childrens main fun being in mistreating the cats and kittens.

The beach is only accessible for those willing to risk the steep steps and once on the beach there are no facilities close by.

The rooms are pretty grubby even by Greek standards and are need of a general refurbishment.

Breakfast was of very poor quality and main meals all came with chips covered in cheese and oregano.

If the hotel was run correctly and refurbished to some degree then it would be possible to ignore some of the short comings , however there are far better places to go in the Greek Islands then risk a week at this hotel.

The Poseidon is a family run medium-sized hotel situated at the lower end of Kriopigi and away from the town centre, which may not suit everybody as the walk up to town takes about 15 minutes. The Poseidon has an amazing large garden and plenty of trees surrounding the pool, all of which is kept meticulously clean every day by the hard-working staff, who are friendly and try to help in every way they can, though communicating can be a problem. The rooms are cleaned every day, with fresh bed linen and towels provided every 3rd day. The decor is simple, but comfortable and spacious and rooms have balconies facing and overlooking the sea - the view from the restaurant onto the bay is stunning. One can walk from the pool/restaurant area to the beach, which is a narrow stretch of beach only used by 2 or 3 hotels nearby and is therefore not too crowded. The water is crystal clear and picture perfect. The walk back up is admittedly a little steep, but manageable, except maybe for the elderly or those with mobility difficulty. George, the owner, and his wife speak perfect English and make you feel at home. Breakfast is continental with lots of luncheon sausage, feta, cheese, and much more and you can eat as much as you like. We had a lovely time at the end of the Kriopigi holiday season, when admittedly everything scales down in the town and around the peninsula. But the sea is unbeatable, pool was great, and we loved the table tennis! A good place to rest and recharge the batteries.
