    I am a frequent guest in the Halkidiki region. Specifically for the hotel Athos Palace is an old hotel, without wifi, the floors in the rooms are unclean and stink on the urine, the food is average, the staff, unlike the previous one, is more kind. Beach sunbaths are charged while the only pearl is the sand beach at the Pallini Hotel which is the only reason for visiting tourists. Overall rating weak ...

    The room was a bit small for 3 adults. There was a big double bed and a very small couch (not so comfortable). The TV was small-old with poor picture quallity.

    Breakfast and dinner were delicious.The Staff was extremely polite and helpfull.The pool was very big and clean as well.

    The food at the restaurant was good but same every day, without variations and new dishes.

    We liked very much the pool area, the kids pool area and the sandy beach on the right side of the hotel. The beach in front of the hotel was ok but the entry into the water was with rocks.

    Tv and basic cable was aweful. Didn't have got water for the first 2 days. Wi-Fi was terrible and extremely slow. Whenever I was able to connect in the lobby IT didn't last long and it didn't reach any rooms which sucks because online it says it's Wi-Fi accessible which was pretty disappointing. Other then that it was a lot of fun and clean.

    Everything was comfortable and the pool was a very good size for adults.

    For the size of this hotel the number of elevators is just to small. On peak times on breakfast and dinner you end up waiting well more than 10 minutes; I would rather have no internet than to have access but no internet. Internet was disaster; The food could be changed more, since after couple of days it is quite repetitive (we stayed 9 nights); The sunbeds need to be updated.

    The staff was very good, they greet you all the time, very friendly; The location is great both near the sea and close to some small but great towns. We were with car so we visited few of them. We would recommend Afythos and Haniotis (I believe the exact spelling of the names is different).

    DON`T BOOK THIS HOTEL!!! The worst, overpriced, old, bad food, hotel I ever seen! My opinion is that this hotel is overpriced more than 2 times. In the visitor`s review book in the recepton you can see only negative feedback! In the room don`t have WiFi. They said only at the reception, but this was the worst WiFi I ever use - so slow that you can use it only for chat - can`t browse websites. We have dinner and breakfast included for 7 days - every day the food was the same and not delicious. In Greece you can eat so much fresh fish, but in their restaurant have only one IMPORTED CHEAP FROZEN FISH! Nothing for drink included - you need to pay 2 euro for water!!! The restaurant is small for all guests - very crowded and hot! Sometimes need more than 10 minutes to take food, because so much people around the food. Have only 2 tables for 6 persons, the other are for 2 or 4 persons. In the restaurant don`t have smoking area. You can`t smoke cigarettes with the coffee, because they don`t allow to take coffee with you outside the restaurant. Umbrella at the beach in front the hotel cost 7,50 euro! If you want iron - they can`t provide it. They give you price list for ironing - 1 t-shirt - 3 euro! 2 times they forget to give us towels for bath - we asked them why and they said to us that don`t have clean towels now... ?! The reception, the restaurant and rooms are very old and need to be renovated! The air condition system is more than 20 years - I saw for the first time so old air condition system. The location is not so good - you have beach in front the hotel, but if you want to go to Kalithea - you need to walk about 2,5km. Everything around the hotel is overpriced abut 2 times - restaurants, bars, shops, markets/all of them are own by the hotel/.

    I like the view of the room and the beach in front of the hotel. Nothing else.

    The elevators didn't function properly. The breakfast room was chaotic. It was impossible to find lounge chairs at the beach and pool, because guests put towels on them to reserve them from the night before. Parking was difficult and limited.

    The view was amazing. The service and food at the Trattoria were excellent!

    The room has not been cleaned on a daily basis, but when it was cleaned there were still things that must be cleaned better. The food was bad and is causing flu. The tratoria onsite has poor menu as well. One should pay additional fee for the sunbeds on the beach Elevators do not work properly. Poor wifi

    Location close to the beach, but away from shops and restaurants The beach is good

    Families should avoid this place during May. I think there was a some sort of spring break, so the place was filled with student age visitors, who were very noisy. I could also smell pot in the corridor of my room. On the day we left, someone had turned the with fire extinguisher in the corridor, so we panicked wondering if the hotel was on fire! The beach was not that great, while pool was overcrowded.

    Variety of food, bargain value for money.

    Staff was not capable to give qualified service. They were not kind, and not helpful starting from reception to any level. You are surrounded with bodyguards who you do not undersatnd whether they are hotel staff or not . There is only one reason to stay there it is their location I would not recommend for this you may find may in the same place.

    Hotel is dirty and not maintained. Food is not clean. Kitchen and restaurants are dirty. Staff are indifferent and overworked so they don't care about servicing clients. Overall, very disappointed and not worth the 4-star rating.

    The hotel is quite big, on a large plot with some facilities that are however very old and not maintained. It is a beach-front hotel however the beach is not very clean and with many rocks.

    Room was on top floor, extremely hot with no A/C in the room. The elevators where not working (only 2 out of the 4 available seemed to worked and that was random). The bed was 80cm width and the television was an obsolete small CRT. I have been to 30 euros/night studios and slept much more comfortable (at least they had airconditioning, which is a joke for a 4 star hotel)

    View from the room and location of the property. The buffet food was average compared to other hotels in Halkidiki in the same price range.
