I stayed at this hotel for a week. I didn't expect too much because of the low rate, but what a wonderful surprise! The hotel is situated in a very well preserved pine tree forest right on the beach. During our stay it was very hot, almost 40 degrees Celsius, so the shade provided by the trees was a relief. The rooms are big and modern, we had a maisonette style family room for up to 4 persons. Our only inconvenient was that the TV had only one English speaking channel...the rest were in German, Russian and Greek languages. The service was very good and friendly starting with the reception staff to the restaurants. Despite the fact that it was peak season, the hotel didn't look full...perhaps because of the rumours about dangerous mosquitoes, lack of gas at the stations and the Greek financial crisis. I have to say that I've seen just a few mosquitoes (I used repellent in the room) and no problem with gas...just the price @ around 1,50 euros/liter.
Breakfast it's diverse, with fresh pies, cheese and hot selection. I would suggest more fresh vegetables and real coffee (not the instant coffee that was served every day).
The pool it's medium size and very good kept.
The beach it's very nice, with fine sand. You must pay for the chair and umbrella 3 euros/person which I think it's a fair price. Chairs and umbrellas at the pool are free. As you enter in the sea, it's a small portion with rocks, but after that it's only fine sand and the water it's gorgeous (green shades, very clean). Just on the right side of the hotel, as you walk on a narrow portion of beach, it's the most luxurious hotel in Halkidiki: The Danai.
It was one minor inconvenient: because of the warm water, the sea was full of big jellyfish (a not dangerous species).
We only eat twice at lunch in the hotel. The prices were low, not higher that the ones from the neibouring taverns.
I will highly recommend a car rental for trips to the fishing village of Vorvourou, Nikiti and to deserted beaches around Sithonia peninsula. Sithonia it's far more greener and relaxed than Kassandra, with mountains covered by pine forests...great place for relaxation. And you must stop on the way to buy local products: fruits, olives, honey.
