Very quite place! The sofa of the beds are not confortable.
The breakfast was good and the location was close to the beach. It had a nice atmosphere and pool. The first room we were given had water damage near the bathroom and had a very musty / mold smell. The second room we were given didn't have functioning airconditioning though the staff insisted that the room temperature air it blew out was actually "air conditioning".
Good location in quiet area. Stuff very kind. Special thanks to Dean and Kristina
I enjoyed every single moment!
Nice accomodation, very confortable. Very convinient for families with young children and people who likes peaceful atmospehere. Nice staff who were always at our service. There is a risk of your unsatisifaction when you get there, as not all rooms are same. Some of them are very nice ( nice view of the pool area , close to restorant , two separate room in each suite), but some of them does not worth 30 % of their price. ( one room suite, basement located, without sunshine troughout all day). So be carefull if possible call there and put attention to particular room you want. On more think is that we discovered that you can get better rates for this hotel if you call them directly as some other peple done who we met at the hotel, especialy for the hotel dinner which cost 27 eur per person per day through booking.com, and 15 eur in hotel. For the price of accomodation same.
The location just beside the beach with two swimming pools is wonderful. Green garden with palm trees. The restaurant/bar was clean and had good choices for drinks and food. The outdoor terrace was a very nice place to spend a romantic evening. On our arrival they greated us with a glas of Sekt. The airconditioning in the room didn't work properly. We had to wait 3 minutes from the moment we turned it on, for it to start blowing cold air. The acoustics to adjacent rooms was not the best, we could hear every laugh from our neighbors. The hotel is situated at the beach whereas the village on a hill. The road from the hotel to the village was quite steep and it required a lot of strength.
The only things which were positive about this hotel was the location in terms of closeness to the sea as well a pretty nice pool area (at least to look at). The reception seemed nice as well, but other than that everything else disappointed. More on this in the dislike section i didn't like 95% of the things i saw and experienced so please take these things into consideration when entertaining the option to visit this hotel: 2. Terrible Beach (the beach was full with corrals and Sea urchins making it impossible to enter and exit the water freely). 2. Staff was very impolite and slow to service even most basic requests (10-20min waiting time for a coffee or beer is unaceptable). 3. Rooms were way below acceptebel levels for the kinds of prices they are requesting, we payed 150eur for a seaside view room which actually had a parking lot view. (if price was 50eur, its fine). 4. Internet is available in 40% of the hotel (no access in studios, inside the rooms (only on Balcony),...
it's pretty good but they wanted us to pay for 2 nights when we left after 5 days instead of staying for 7 days. Also no mattress cover and hard to get extra pillows.
Friendly staff, attention to detail, relaxing, lovely setting It would be very nice to have tea/coffee served at table for breakfast (as previously) and not from a machine
The only thing we liked in the hotel was the wonderful view to the sea and the terrace. It was also situated in a very quiet place. It was mentioned in website that the studio is situated only 500 meters away from the main building. But actually when we get there it turned out that the studios are situated more than 3 km away from the hotel and the only way to get there is by car. The other dissaponting thing was that the studios are only 1 start, that fact was not mentioned anywhere. The guest are misled that they are paying for 4 stars studios. The parking lot is also quite small - for 19 rooms in the building there is only 4 parking places. In the village we could not find even one sign, which to lead to hotel, so we spend more one hour to look for hotel.Finally, the price for the studios definitely does not corresponds to the quality.
the beach the kichen
beautiful garden, swimming pool; nice sandy beach poor noise isolation in the rooms; little greek specialities in the buffee
Their private beach and very clear beach In three nights staying they didnt change our towels at all. We know that the 4 stars hotel they change it daily basis
big parking area, friendly staff, amazing beach, excellent service maybe bigger swimming pool
friendly and helpfull staff, clean beach, nice food, interesting events
nothing really the hotel's web site does not give a fair picture, rooms are small and not comfortable.
eveything no parking
The services were very good, hotel staff was very nice, I liked the pool is small, but very clean. The only problem was parking, but this was a problem anywere in Greece.
Stratos hotel is excellent! The room was spacious and spotless clean with a nice and modern décor. The breakfast was delicious with many choices. They have the cleanest pool I have ever seen. Staff was superb and wireless had a very good speed! I recommend Stratos Hotel 100% and I will definitely be back! Thank you for everything!
we like the friendly staff,the location and the comort no
The staff was friendly and helpful. There were lots of pigeons in the court yard that were flying around and they were also bathing in the swimming pool which did not seem very hygienic. As a result we did not use the pool. There was also a smell coming from the bathroom during the whole stay.
swimming pool noise levels
Convenient for all the tavernas and bars, very good beach but an uphill walk back. Anastasia and Stella really look after their guests, you couldn't find better staff, they went out of their way to help us with bus timetables, drew maps of areas of interest, and were very friendly. Anastasia also picked us up and dropped us off at the airport, making it the easiest tranfer I've ever experienced. If you book the Stratos Hotel you will not regret it - SUPERB. No it was very good.
Pigeons, many pigeons all over the roof and around the pool.
Hotel staff (Stella and fellow) deserve 10+ (A+) . Hotel cleaning: everyday, Towels changed every 2/3 days, Distance from bus station: 200 m, Distance from village center: 100/150 meters, Distance from the beach: max. 10 minutes by foot. Distince from the beach, but this is a common problem for (almost) all hotels from Afitos.
I loved the proximity to the beach, the cleanliness of the rooms, and the tranquil atmosphere. I really loved that you weren't piping music to the beach. I loved the water, swimming, and then coming back to a clean, comfortable room to relax. The food was not very good at the outdoor restaurant and the shower needs a shower curtain. I also did not understand why the beach is not always all-inclusive of the room price (we had to pay to be there and were told that only deluxe type rooms had full access to the beach).
Pleasant and clean hotel with great food beutiful beech
The room was very comfortable and situated near a green park and near the sea, the food was rich in asortiments. There was no activity after the dinner and you have to pay to stay at the beach.
Relaxing atmosphere, good buffet breakfast with big variety, plenty of swimming pools so they were not overcrowded. The umbrella and sunbed charges at the beach were not acceptable for such a five star hotel. Also, although it mentions that parking is available, the parking is available only for owned cars and not for rented ones. Finally, in our bedroom there was only one thin white curtain and unfortunately everyday we were waking up very early from the sunlight. They should have had two sets of curtains.
Outdoor pools are very good; the breakfast and dinner are very quality; Hotel staff is unprofessional except in the spa and bell desk; working time of the sauna is short; they need to improve the gym; the entrance in the sea should be clean from the stones;
Location, hotel staff I should clarify:There 2 location, one is far from the sea and another is very far from sea (over the road). One restaurant was closed and it was in use only one, not enough for all the people. Due to that, the location was very crowded, the waiters service slowed. It is definitely not a 5 stars hotel!
Beutifully placed hotel with low appartments , in the green next to the white beach. The hotel staff were excellent especially the guys driving the golf carts made all the guests feel special. The reasturant for dinner was always very crouded . I beleive it needs another restaurant.
It is a very confortable hotel for family situated in a nice place.
Great combination of nature with luxury. Excellent organization, beautifull space No
everythink iz ok
Services and facilities in general were of high standard, especially the food. My room was impeccable.
The location was great and the hotel grounds were very nice. The room furniture was very old looking and outdated. Food was OK. Buffet style. The beach was nice. We did not use the beach chairs at all since the fee is $10 and for a family of 6 it's not worth spending that much money. We did go to the beach but just to swim. The hotel pools have salt water as well. Old looking furniture. Outdated rooms. Poor TV Chanel selection. Horrible Internet/WiFi. Average food.
The environment is very nice, very careful preserved, the rooms are also nice, the position of the hotel is also good, near to many beaches of Chalkidiki and to the "cosmopolitan" Kalithea. There was a problem with internet. They don t have internet in rooms, as they advertise, plus the wireless of the reception didn t operate at all. It s unbelievable a 5stars hotel not to provide u internet access in our times. Also I think is overpriced for what it offer to you. The restaurant 's boufet it was very big but I don t believe that it was respectively tasteful.
The staff were really helpful and friendly, the rooms were basic but clean, nice pool area and balcony. No lift!
The atmosphere of the whole hotel is fantastic - the pool area looks nice and it is quiet, which means you can really enjoy your stay. The staff is very helpful and kind. Also, the beaches near the hotel are really great and Afytos is probably the best place on Kassandra (small and with old traditional houses). The hotel rooms do not have nets on windows (and there are a lot of mosquitoes in Greece). The choice of food for breakfast could be better.

a very clean and comfy stay indeed - staff were very friendly and food was good- room was lovely They had a wedding on the Saturday night that went on till 3am - very very loud and right nect to our room - i thought that was out of order as if you are paying for a hotel youdont expect them to have a wedding at the venue that completely disrupts your nights sleep - they should give youdiscounted rates if they having a massive funtion
During my stay at Petrino Hotel I enjoyed the food. Petrino Suites, even though being a very nice place to spend a holiday break had poor airconditioning system, which spoiled the holiday at the end.
We liked best the grounds and the swimming pool, breakfast was fine, the food at the tavern was fine too, slightly higher priced than elsewhere The bathroom fittings needed attending to and there was a leak outside the bathroom, generally the room maintenance perhaps needs attention
nice suites,hotel stuff was friendly but not well organized they gave us wrong suite after that they changed it but after half hour (it was 3 p.m), new room wasn’t well cleaned, there was nobody at reception at all Saturday evening, we couldn't order dinner or anything else and had to go to city, we were waiting 45 minutes in the morning to somebody came to reception to pay a bill, finally we've paid to "somebody" from hotel who don't speak English and gave us not bill but piece of paper with amount, there was one wrong bill from "pool bar", "room with private pool" is hard to say - pool is big bathtub (3x4 m), "private garden" you share with neighbor suites, there was wedding at all Saturday night with noisy music, no "bathrobes",
perfect facilities was a little noisy because the hotel location is to far to the main road
Petrino Suites is perfect. One of the best restaurant in the area with a beautiful environment. Our room was very romantic with a nice private veranda looking at the pool. Congratulations to all of the staff, they were just perfect.
We really liked the swiming pool surounded by the green garden We didn't like the presence of flies in the garden. We also didn't like the fact that the food on the breakfast table was not available all the time and we sometimes craved about bacon or eggs(otherwise the food was excellent).
Good service, very friendly.
Everything was ideal for peaceful family holidays
Big room, enough for a family with 4 persons. Clean . The hotel seems to be a small village with different houses. Good brekfast A little bit far from the see
The hotel is big, specially good for families with small children, a really great staff, and what we liked the most it has excellent beach. We travelled with a six months old baby and had nice and relaxed holiday. Even though the food is good the menu could be more varied, especially regarding dinner.The prices of drinks are unreasonably high.
Range of food available on the buffet, Style of hotel Prices were very expensive and no details about what food was being served in the restaurant.
The location of the resort is simply amazing. I stayed six nights and I could not get enough of the facilities. I was particularly impressed by the nearby marina area which is part of the resort. The food was very good. The room cleaning service could be faster. Some days, the room was not cleaned until after 2 p.m. Drinks at the restaurant were expensive and so were snacks at the beach and pool bars. Most of the staff did not speak Greek.
Lots of eastern european staff that my russian wife could talk to. Hertz car hire point. Good beaches with plenty of space even at peak times Not too sure about the cooking -but there are restaurants for the fastididous albeit at a small surchage. Price quoted by Internet 300 euros less than I actually paid.
we enjoyed meeting all the international staff and learning about them and their countries. we didnt like having to make reservations for our dinners. we like to eat when we get hungry.
Great place for holiday
The staff were delightful and very helpful, the resort was well planned, the facilities provided were good, the resort was well maintained The area around the hotel is pretty grim and a car is an essential requirement if you want to venture beyond the resort itself. We were the last guests to leave (NOv 1st) and the availability of a a variety of foods diminished considerably as the week progressed.
it was honestly great stay, hotel is beautiful in a calm place , perfect for relax and the countryside is amazing, we would louve to come back next year for holidays for sure!!!!
The garden and the sea view is nice. The breakfast buffet was very poor. The restaurant staff closes the buffet at 10:00am Greek time, and they always argue with guests who object to this. The hotel manager is very unfriendly, and they don't respect their guests. The Internet is very expensive. The pool was not clean. There were wasps and mosquitoes around the pool and in the room. The beach is only accessible by 160+ steep stairs. There is no entertainment or activities in the hotel. The hotel is 2km far from Afitos, and the road is dark and unsafe. This is not a 4-star hotel, and it has no service and no value for money.
The quiet attention of the very pleasant staff, the wonderful location, view and setting of the hotel. Just a perfect short break location and really child friendly. I have been coming for 6 years and the quality and service remain consistently top class.
fantastic see view, big terrace, nice design of the hotel and the room, good location
I liked everything about the hotel.
the atmosfair,and the silance
Position, view, breakfast, cleanliness, beach. Bar staff not polite. Nobody on the premises at night, when fire alarm started and nobody was there to stop it. Noisy wedding party Saturday night prevented us from sleep.
- position, very close to the beach - very clean - friendly staff - good breakfast - nice pool
Great view from a suit, spacious rooms, clean. Friendly staff. Comparable in quality with Sani Beach Club, though in 30 min drive from Sani Resort. Walking distance to Athytos old town, where there are plenty of taverns and nice views too. One of the best places in Khalkidiki! Nothing really, besides going to the beach via a stip stairs will be challenging for older people and young kids.
Nice hotel, friendly stuff and very comfortable and well cleaned rooms with nice decoration. The suite had two beds instead of one king size bed and the internet connection mostly didn't work.
A five star hotel provides its guest with a kitchen that operates after 2100 hrs that enables guests to eat. If not, it is NOT a five star hotel!!!! The opening hours of the kitchen needs to be improved as well the quality of food offered in the poolbar/restuarant, if not, the hotel can not continue to be advertised as a five star hotel.
The pool and beach combination was great. The hotel is fairly smal and the grounds are easy to navigate and use. The menu at the beach bar was very limited and not representative of the greek cusine and definately not suited to a five star hotel rating. The dinner menu was just as limited and lacked flavor and freshness.
Very good pool and beach side facilities Over priced bar meals and drinks
Comfort and beach Services
Close to beach, friendly staff, clean rooms, good food & drinks, nice views (especially sunsets) Not a 5 star hotel at all. People at reception should lear to walk the talk and not just pretend they are customers oriented.
design of bulidings, of the site, room, inlcuding bathroom. Many many things . But you say that I am not allowed to complain . So, what could be something I didn't like which is no also a complaint ? If could more specific, I will be able to answer this question. Anyway, I recommend this hotel in 2-3 years from now. For now, they seem to me as a beginers . Beautiful site, not asa much beautiful service and organization.
We liked the beach and the facilities there;new furniture in the entire hotel and our big terrace. There is no wireless internet in the entire hotel as it mentioned in Booking.com-only in the lobby of the hotel.We didn't understand if sauna and fitness room were existing in the hotel.
fitness romm or bycicle way on description hotel write we have wireless internet,and in reality it was not :)
Some of the best things at this hotel were the excellent rooms, the very nice pool, a beautifull beach and the very friendly staff members. Some other reviews I read say that the staff members try too much or that even sometimes they are not friendly. What I have to say is i) trying too much is never bad and ii) the visitor also needs to be friendly to the staff as they are human - what you give is what you'll get if you know what I mean. the price was good but I did not stay during high season. Based on the prices I saw for July - August I could say it's a bit overpriced but it's definitely a super deal for May - June - September.
Great Value for Money ,friendly stuff all around. One of the best places to relax
Nice beach Better stuf ,no rude reception and waiters,better furniture
Great Value for Money
The beach,animation team, and the room ventilation in the elevators
The second time we have stayed there - first time two years ago. The beach and sea is perfect. Small towns nearby good for shopping and restaurants. This time the other guests were predominantly Russians and Macedonians, rather than Western European. Something of a culture shock! Also local traders have become extremely expensive; fruit is at least 5 times proper local market prices, and fish restaurants are charging 60Euro per kilo for fish. There may be a financial crisis in Greece but this was outrageous.
Very very noizy. Mosquitos everywhere. No internet in rooms.
the hotel's beach the food
The room is perfect, with a panoramic sea view. The beach is clean and the water is beautiful.The hotel is not far of Kalitheea and Afytos.There are a lot of tavernas and shops for souvenirs in Kalitheea.If you are by car, you can also go to Petralona cave, which is aprox 45km from the hotel. The breakfast is not diversified, you have the same dishes every morning and you have to ''hunt'' the vegetables, as you can't find them all the time.The indoor pool with the dome is a joke - it's closed during day, it's small, it smells weird inside.The outdoor pool is not cleaned every day and it has a lot of sand on the pool bottom and dead bees. The sunbeds are not very comfortable as they dont have any cushion and you have to pay 7.5eur for a sunbed with umbrella on the hotel private beach.
It was only one night, but it’s enough to feel the positive energy and the good hotel operation! Check in was fast and friendly, bell boy escorted us to the room, (our beautiful room with big bathtub), Beach was clean, cocktails were refreshing and dinner in Akrogiali Tavern with fresh fish and good wine was the best closure of the evening!! Thank you all very much and we promise that our next holiday is with you again!!
The beach was excellent with crystal clear water , the variety and quality of food available for evening meals was also execllent.
