Looking for a hotel in Halkidiki region, I bumped into Eagles Palace Hotel. I carefully went through most reviews and I got hooked up.
Hotel is located in the third "finger" of Halkidiki peninsula, a good two hours drive from Thessaloniki, but the surroundings, the beach and the sea are totally worth it.
As you step into the hotel, you are immediately made to feel at home. Giorgia from reception is really a nice lady, very helpful, showing us the room, explaining the facilities and the program for the coming days.
We were upgraded to a junior seaview suite with a nice little terrace equipped with sunbeds, coffee table and chairs where we could have our morning coffee. From the complementary water, Nespresso and greek wine, it starts off really great.
And it gets better.
The service in this resort is outstanding!
Gardens, pool and beach area are spotless!
Breakfast is rich and basically nothing is missing!
Open buffet dinner, is every night a different theme and I literally couldn't decide what to try first. Food is amazing.
I was especially surprised by the degustation menu with Hotel's Chef and Greek Master of Wines Lazarakis! A Fine Dining Menu accompanied by a blind tasting of Greek vs. French wines! Rarely have I found a dinner so much entertaining! Thank you Giorgia for telling me not to miss this event ;-)
All the restaurants in this resort serve amazing food and I can't stress enough: a 5 star service!
You can have lunch at Armyra Restaurant by the beach or have a snack or sandwich brought to you right at the beach.
Every day the housekeeping lady brings you the next day program along with a small "treat" :-)
A visit in the Ouranoupolis village is absolutely a must! There are countless cafes, restaurants and shops where you could get souvenirs like olive oil, honey, spices from the Mount Athos or other knick-knacks to remember your holiday by.
Speaking about Athos, you should absolutely take the boattrip organised by the hotel where your guide a lovely Austrian lady will tell you all you need to know about Mount Athos and the odd life of monks in that land. Before returning to the hotel a dive in the turquoise waters of Drenia Islands - absolutely not to miss.
At the end I may or may not returned home at least 2 kilograms more ;-) even though there's Aquagym and a small but well equipped gym.
Especially for the ladies: do not leave without trying their Spa services. Can't praise it enough.
Overall, I would say this is a 5 star resort, with a 5 star service.
Yes, expensive but totally worth every single euro spent!
Georgia from the Front Desk, Olga from Guest Relations, Nikos from the Armyra and Kamares Restaurant, Thank You all for making our holidays unforgettable.
