Reviewed 10 August 2010

Just got home from one of the best holidays we have experienced, a very well kept, clean, friendly and well located home. We say home because that is exactly where you stay in Maria.s home.
The reason for us booking this was the small amount of rooms and the close relationship you get from a small and cosy complex. Maria is the best host we have ever experienced, she even took my wife shopping in the next village for an hour in her car! You dont get that from big overcrowded hotels.
Maria's mum and dad also live with her and always spoke to you when they saw you, Anna the cleaning lady is very cheerful and greated you every morning. Learn a bit of Greek, make the effort and you won't go wrong.
Rooms and gardens are spotlessly clean, anything you want you only have to ask and the evenings around the bar with the close nit guests are brilliant. Admitted you do have to get the right type of people staying at the same time to make your holiday but don't go disregarding this hotel due to other reviews, after all that is their opinion! The sad thing is Maria is not in the brochures for next year but in a way this is good as only having 10 rooms it was getting difficult to get in when you wanted as very popular.
Maria.... Thanks for a great time and love to all...

we have just come back from the cleopatra,and felt we had to write a review about the place, and especially maria and her familly, as we had such a fantastic holiday.firstly the place is spotlessly clean,well run.and in an ideal position, it is only a 10 minute stroll into the square of hanioti or onto the beach. as regards to the reviews about the dogs barking at night this has now been sorted as maria went to see the owners and they have moved the dogs. hanioti itself is ideal as you have a busy square with plenty going on,or around the outside you have plenty of quieter bars and restaurants. all the restaurants we ate at were really good, and i can reccomend hanioti's melathron (maria,s brothers) ,stones, the roof garden, and the italian restaurant on the square who's name escapes me,but is only 20 yards from melathron. and finally a big thank you to maria and her familly for the welcome we had from the day we arrived to the final goodbye,maria was there everyday from 8 am until whatever time you wanted to stay up till, and as well as running the bar she was also cutting the grass, cleaning the pool and all other jobs that needed doing, but if you needed anything you only had to ask. we will look forward to returning to maria's in th future.

We stayed here in June 2010, we enjoyed our stay very much, the rooms and complex are very clean. Maria (the owner) is lovely and very helpful. There was one drawback and that was the lack of food and snacks, Maria didn't do breakfast and the choice on the menu was toasties or chips. I dont like to cook when i'm on holiday and it was a 10/15 minute walk to the square so really i had no choice although we went out for dinner every evening. Other than that excellent holiday and very peaceful

We picked these studios largely because of the previous reviews, which all seem to be excellent. The property IS in a lovely location - a 10 minute walk from the town and beach, with beautiful views to the mountains if you have a balcony to the rear. (Previous reviewers have mentioned noisy dogs ..... they are still there!) The apartments are lacking a few things that you would expect when self-catering. There are no laundry facilities; kitchen facilities are very limited; the apartments are fairly small. Worst of all, there is nowhere comfortable to sit, just plastic patio chairs. To be fair, the place is spotless. The hardworking cleaner is there every day. She keeps the place spick and span - and always has a smile and friendly kalimera for the guests. Which is more than can be said for Maria! From what we witnessed, she spends the day sat smoking and drinking with a group of her friends around the bar area and it was quite intimidating to walk past them at times, let alone venture to the bar for a drink. I can see that some people would be comfortable there, especially smokers who may feel alienated elsewhere, but we were less than impressed with Maria's attitude, which at best was polite but indifferent - and at times was quite surly (unless the Thomson rep was around!). Overall, we had no reason to complain about anything in particular, we were just disappointed with a seemingly disinterested owner. If this wouldn't bother you, I would recommend the Cleopatra for it's location and cleanliness. Hanioti itself is a friendly little town - nice and quiet in May! And if you hire a car, it's a good base to go on to visit most of Kassandra and Sithonia.

First the positives.
Great location close to all the bars and restaurant. Basic but clean 2 star accommodation.

The negatives.
Very noisy road. Bar expensive. Small pool. Rude owner.

Insufficient towels just 1 bath and 1 hand.
My husband and I were ill with a stomach bug and when we asked for clean towels the cleaner shouted down to Maria who in turn shouted up to us in front of all the other guests that the towels ere changed twice a week and they had been changed on Thursday (It was Sunday and we were going home the next day). Very unprofessional and in flexible. Wouldn't go back.
