Akrathos Beach Hotel
Ranked #6 of 10 Hotels in Ouranoupolis
Reviewed 18 May 2013

This resort is awesome, the place is fantastic. I would say that all inclusive buffett policy is destroying quality everywhere as well as in this place. Food is uneatable despite of excellent quality of all the rest. Wi-fi is not free and very slow. For the rest I don't think there's a better hotel in the area.

I stayed at this hotel a week in early June.
Once arrived in the region, we faced the landscape. A very surprising combination of mountain and sea road, all seasoned with palm trees and white and pink flowers

The hotel is about 135-140 km from Thessaloniki have a large parking lot wich is covered. Even though the hotel was full I never had no trouble finding a parking place.

At the reception we had met with some very kind lady, gave us the bracelets all distinction for all inclusive, room keys, a made a small presentation services for all inclusive and wished us a nice stay!

Accommodation: Family room was spacious enough with a double bed and a bunk bed for children. Was also a double room and a sofa bed! Wonderful view to the sea, the pool and to another resort. Impeccable housekeeping including linen and towel change.

Pool consists of two pools, one for children 0.70 m an one for adults - water was starting to 1,55 m and reached progressively at a depth of 1.70 m

Free sunbeds at the pool, but you must take your own towel. Lifeguard present every day.

At the pool bar serve free starting at 10 to 18 o'clock juices (apple, cherry, orange, fizzy like cola, sprite, fanta), beer, white wine or red, various teas and clear water. Between the hours of 11:00 to 12:30 and ice cream served starting at 15 different cakes.

Beach: Very easy access, a bridge built to cross the street. Wide beach with sand and a few rocks at the entrance (about 1m after it was sand). Small fishes could been seen everywhere. Free sun beds and umbrellas. Beach bar open from 10 am to 18 am with juice like coca cola, sprite or slot. The rest was extra and payable.

As entertainment, the beach boats were rented for 40 euros a day + gas boat (about another 50 euros if you wanted to get a little all day). You could visit the 6 islands deserted beaches where the water is quite different from the hotel, meaning that it was only fine sand without stones and turquoise input to drive you crazy. Or you can visit by boat Amouliani island, inhabited, where you can have lunch, Evening return. For this escapade does not require special permit for the boat, with just 3 minutes before starting training very easy to drive. In addition there were banana boats and scuba center.

Meals: Breakfast much the same every day: eggs (either mesh or different omelets), ham, cheese, sausages, puffs very good, butter, 5-6 kinds of jams, Finetti, tea, cocoa, milk, coffee, juice ... So eat well but after a week near the end of your stay you will feel tired of the same . It easy lunch, pasta, pizza, salads, meat, fruit ... and evening meal with 3-4 basic types, fruits, salads and desserts. At all meals you can serve juices, water, wine, beer, ouzo (well less alcohol at breakfast)

Animation programs for children throughout the day were only in German ... Children's obvious evening disco. For adults there was nothing organized. A once weekly Greek night, which comes with a band.

Ouranoupoli village is about 1.5 to 2 km from the hotel, arriving by car, the hotel bus (2 euros / person) or walk t.
In the opposite direction, the town is about 11 km ... Ierisou or something (is the second location of the hotel right after Nea Roda) where every Tuesday there is a deal where you can find olive farmers and good olive oil.

We were in hotel in sep. 2012 with 2 kids (1 and 4 years old).
We booked room in renovated part ,SV, ALL, in main building (the price was higher for renovated rooms). But, they give us room in old part with the excuse that the hotel is full and they can do nothing for us. Beds were small. If you are 1,9 m or higher, there are not beds for you. After 4 days, and contacting my travel agent for a few times, we got another room.
There is air conditioning in the room but if you arrive in September, you have to pay 3 euros per day.
Be careful, when you are thinking about this hotel. On Akrathos website you can see just renovated rooms. But reality is, that there are just 10 or 15 renovated rooms in main building. The rest are old rooms.
The worst thing was: food. The food was almost inedible. This is not all inclusive hotel. This is not light all inclusive.
For lunch: just boiled pasta with something or nothing, every day.
For other meals: Rice, pasta again, poor salads, uncooked beans, small parts of fish..
Fruits -just one sort of fruit every day: watermelon.
I was struck by a huge crowd in the restaurant every day, as in public kitchens or in a student canteen.
Drinks and ice-cream was in all inclusive just on pool bar (far away from beach). In beach bar you should pay everything.
If you go to pool bar from beach with idea to take ice-cream for yourself and kids - it is not possible! You can get just 2 ice creams, or you should go from beach to pool bar, again with one and four years old kids. Insane, isn't it?
Juices were not for kids, at all.
Beach was nice with free sunbeds and umbrella.
We are in Greece every year, and this is the worst hotel in the class of 3*/4* hotels. For lower price you can get good hotels with HB in Ouranopolis.
Never again!

Room Tip: Renovated rooms are in main building.

We were at the hotel in mid-June 2012, with children age 2 and 4 years. Nice resort with beautiful garden of olive and palm trees. Rooms are small but clean. Swimming pool was also clean, where we spent most of the time. The food was good. You can always find something that suits you, especially during dinner. The only thing is the choice of fruit was limited. Good thing was the large parking lot with sun protection. Bad thing - that at nearby there is nothing else but a couple of hotels. The nearest place is about 2 miles, but when you are with small children you can not move away from a lot. The hotel also has a small playground for children. Overall a pleasant stay in a pleasant family hotel. All recommendations ... ;-)

We stayed with a 17 month old baby at Akrathos hotel for 12 days in the beginning of September. We arrived and checked in at 8.00 AM which was sooner that we expected. Stuff was really nice and friendly. Room was clean and with a sea view. We slept like a babies. We had a baby cot, but there was no mattress! Garden is very nice, with a large number of olive trees, palms and flowers. All dishes are more or less the same taste. There were five or six kind of salads (rise and vegetables, tomato and cucumber, pasta salads...) nothing special. Olives are excellent! The dinner is more versatile than lunch. Cakes and sweets tasted OK, but there were only three kinds of fruit after lunch but only one kind at the time (watermelon, peaches and apples). For my husband food was very good, but for me no. We drank mostly draft beer which was light, but OK. Soft drinks are terrible! Beach is OK, sea is very clean, and there is no big waves (good for small children). On the beach there is a small playground for kids. Beach towels are for rent (deposit 10 euro per towel and rent is 0,50 euro/day). Pool is OK, with the beautiful sea view. There is a small children area where kids can spent some time. Disco for kids from 8.30 to 9.00 PM. Free internet connection was bad (available only in the lobby), but you can always buy certain amount of online time and in such case connection is OK. Private parking in shades available.
And, at the end, we had a nice holiday. We recommend this hotel for families with small children. No doubt, It was worth the money we paid for.

Room Tip: Ask for Dimitra or Costadina buildings. Certainly not ground floor, first and second are OK.

HI
just come back from the hotel,never did revew for a hotel, but this is bad.
waste of money,the rooms are good, I had twin room because my kids are 12 and 15.
The pool is average, around cleen,but the water to chemichal and blury,too dip for women 1.60m.
Staff not frendly, only the Bulgarians staff are smiling, the rest greeks are like you stole something from them, not frendly at all.
The beach not bad, too many stones, the wather,nice and cleen.
Main problem the all inclusive doesnt Apply on the beach, caffe espresso or capuchino you have to pay, ace creems you pay, never happened to me, this people are far away from the idea All inclusive, take your money and go this is their target, and give peanuts.
The Food WOW discuisting,every day the same trash,and salads,all day hungry,and pay for staff around, on the 3rd day my wife who never complane for food, she said to me <If I go in the restorant I will be sick in my guts, and true, this is terrible, some of the food left from lunch was served again in the evening same smell same trash.Clever some times they put some extra staff inside to look defferent.Desserts watermelon mainly,the rest is funny stuff prepared from the breakfast leftovers.No fresh Fish or Chicken or proper meat,only funny cooked food.
Never come back in this place, and in greece.

Room Tip: higher floors,to avoid bugs coming under the door.

The only good things during our vacation in Akrathos Beach Hotel were the weather and the see. All the rest should definitely be avoided.
We made the reservations and the payment a month before our arrival, neveetheless when we arrived the receptionists were very surprised to see that we are actually 4 instead of 3 (although our voucher clearly stated that we are 4!). We received a room with 3 beds with the excuse that the hotel is full and they can do nothing for our first night. After contacting the travel agency, spending a lot of money on roaming mobile fees, we received the confirmation that eventually the next day we may get a room for 4! This was just the beginning. In the evening we had the "pleasure" to enjoy the "lovely" food - boiled pasta with nothing, boiled pasta with butter, boiled pasta with poor tomato sauce and some fish in a lot of grease that was not eatable at all. The drinks were the same quality - juices were made out dissolvable powders (like "Steps"), the cola was some local brand named Cola Up (only chemicals and not even a resemblance to the real Coca Cola taste), the same was with the other non-alcoholic beverages. You can imagine the quality of the beer, ouzo and zipouro - these were the only alcoholic drinks. If you would like to drink a normal drink you had to pay. The breakfast on the next morning was not different - fried sliced of bread, fried eggs, boiled eggs, a kind of salami we are giving to the dogs here, sweets and two types of cereals (thanks God the kids were able to eat something!). This was served every day - the same food! When we complained about the poor quality of the food we were told that this is what we paid for! We paid for:
1. Awful food
2. Unpolite staff
3. Lack of animators for the kids
4. Not working free internet
5. poor hotel management
