"It was a beautiful hotel and right on the beach."
Location was not brilliant as hotel was located next to a very busy road. Not many places near by as mostly closed due to the end of season or closed as they have gone bust. We were also disappointed with our second week as they changed the eating arrangements. Normally would have 2 restaurants to deal with both hotels, but in the second week, we all had to eat in one restaurant, which became very busy and noisy, so this did put us off. I also want to pay tribute to the bar staff who work so hard and are very professional and take pride in their job.

I stayed in a standard room and the best thing about it was the balcony. The sea was less than a hundred metres away and the view of the the islands was spectacular. The room was very comfortable though the TV was an old model. But who goes to Ouranoupoli to watch TV? Water pressure in the sink was low but the shower was glorious. The restaurant was hit and miss. The Saturday night Byzantine Buffet was great but otherwise the food was not always great. I went in May and hence off-peak and so the hotel was quiet. I recommend this hotel. The staff were friendly and spoke English. The town is gorgeous too.I will definitely go back!
This is a beautiful very small and very quiet fishing village/port. The hotel is small, seems to be family run. It is right on the edge of the harbour/beach. The staff are very friendly. The room was very clean. The only two small issues were that the shower wasn't amazing (some leaks and the shower head was too low, I am 6ft 4, but it still worked fine) and the balcony we had didn't face the sea. Not expensive, good value overall. It is about 90mins drive from Thessaloniki airport and easy to find.
I recommend to hire a car and go exploring - there are at least 80 beaches on Sithonia. We really liked a beach called Zografos which is in a small cove with cliffs each side, it is about 15mins drive south along the coast road from the hotel.
It is a nicely maintained, quiet hotel and ideal for families.We stayed in an apartment for 4 and it was lovely. All have balconies and all look over the sea so there is no overlooking other guests balconies. The staff were very friendly and helpful. You definitely need a car to get anywhere although there is one beach close by which is great for kids. One point though. We did not see or hear one English person there for the whole week. Mainly Romanian, Albanian and Greek. All very civilized though.
Part of Central Macedonia and resembling a hand with three fingers, the Halkidiki peninsula in northern Greece draws visitors for its beach resorts and villages. Party animals head to Kalithea beach for entertainment, romantic travelers to Karydi, and families to Sarti beach. The Cave of Petralona and the nearby Anthropological Museum are a must for history fans.
