"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.

Being two times in a row in the same hotel tells enough. The hotel is nice, a little outdated, relatively close to the beach (no crossing the main road). The hotel staff is nice and reachable. When I complained about two small issues in the room the repairman fixed them within 2 hours since the complaint has been made (while we were out for diner).
The hotel is approx. 500-600m away from the village centre which makes it very quiet. The nearest hotel beach area (Whites Beach) is wider and generally better than the Hanioti beach.
Note, however, that this beach is not operated by the hotel management. We were very disappointed this year by the obvious discrimination of hotel customers over the locals and management's friends in terms of umbrella reservations. All 30 front row umbrellas were always reserved on Greek's names all the time. Different Greek families would come and go under these umbrellas, but when hotel customers tried to get them they were rudely rejected.
Also, don't be fooled by internet-on-the-beach, since this internet is so weak and hard to connect that you should not try to loose time on it. Nowadays, providing internet even on the beach is a must and this beach only declaratively has it. It is unusable.
The same applies to the free internet in the hotel. It is also unusable. Instead, buy 5e internet card to get 60 (or 90) min of OK internet, and use it wisely.

Bit small rooms but very nice and comfy. A well located hotel. Giannis was an excellent host and his suggestions concerning restaurants were excellent. He booked us a place on his day off - very dedicated.
"Lovely spacious room with balcony overlooking sea."
Staff really friendly, food excellent and reasonably priced. Beach a walk down steep dirt road so hire a car. Excellent water sports club on beach and lovely restaurant next to it. Loved Saviri and Dyrades hotel.
In Halkidiki close to Thessaloniki, the peninsula of Kassandra features numerous villages and beaches. The Byzantine Watch Tower of Agios Pavlos or Mount Athos Monastery in Nea Phokea are notable attractions. The ruins of the Zeus temple in Kallithea or the temple of Poseidon in Posidi are a must for history fans. Wellness lovers enjoy the spa baths of Agia Paraskevi.
