It was a lovely hotel, honestly nothing bad to say

Posted Aug 23, 2017
Pros: Breakfasts and dinners were good as you could help yourself to a wide selection of buffet food and the hotel was spotlessly clean with good service.
Cons: I cannot think of anything to improve the hotel.
Location: This hotel was within 5 minutes of a wonderful beach which had watersports. There is a bus stop near by but we hired a car which was great.
It was a wonderful hotel, one of the best places we have ever stayed at as a family of five. We stayed in one of the maisonettes and they were fabulous as they had their own pool which linked to a larger one and it was great to have a second bathroom for our teenagers to share upstairs.

Really great relaxing break

Posted Aug 5, 2017
Pros: Pool, tranquility, breakfast and a very nice massage which was complementary.
Cons: Dinner was pretty disappointing.
Location: Location is great away from the madding crowd! Beach 5 mins away. Laxouri is well worth a visit.
We had a great time relaxing at this hotel. Getting there isnt well publicised so we arranges a taxi (through the hotel) which we negotiated a cost of €80 (each way) before we left the UK. If we had researched a little better, we would have found there was a ferry to Laxouri then a taxi to the hotel (my advice-do this) for half the price. On arrival, staff were great, cold drinks were given at the reception, bags were taken and we were shown to our room. Really nice, clean, spacious room bottle of wine and a bowl of fruit to welcome us in. Ventured down to the pool, no problems throughout finding loungers always loads to choose from every day, no need to lay towels out. Pool was a great relaxing treat, quiet and tranquille. We stayed half board, breakfast far and away the best meal the hotel offered, wide ranging selection of any style of breakfast, including a quality full English. Dinner, in our view was dissapointing. Evening entertainment was sparse but did cater for everyones tastes, again a little disappointing bar staff were friendly. We ventured out to the beach which had some nice bars and views, this served as a leg stretch and break with a little more activity and noise. Small mini market offered a nice range of drinks and snack should you wish to stay on you veranda for a night cap. Return to the airport was a breeze using the ferry. All in all, we had a great break at a beautiful hotel, I would recommend this hotel for a relaxing break.

Not quite five star but excellent value for money

Posted Oct 17, 2016
Pros: Staff great, outdoor cinema, always plenty of sun beds.
Cons: Expensive drinks
Location: Beach about five mins walk.
nice modern hotel with everything you would expect. Not really five star but when you compare prices it's very competitive (although wine and drinks typically overpriced!). Outdoor cinema a nice touch though.

Great hotel can't fault it

Posted Aug 19, 2016
Just got back from a two week stay. The hotel is very well run the staff are amazing. The rooms are cleaned daily. Wifi isn't great in the rooms. The restaurant has a great variety of Food great breakfast lots to choose from. The evening food pasta, different meats loads of salads which I loved. Shame there wasn't more fish dishes as I don't eat meat but veggie option was good. The cocktails are great especially the expresso martinis after dinner. We went down to xi beach most days. Baywatch did the best burgers and salads. Also fish bones is to the left of the beach have to walk through the water very authentic food lots of fresh fish. Two weeks was too long for us 10 days would be fine. The food repeats it's self in the restaurant. Did the Thomson boat trip which was great fun went to some lovely beaches. The Greek people can't do enough for you.

Our second stay - even better than the first time!

Posted Jul 25, 2016
Pros: Everything. Fantastic location on a quiet peninsula on the island, just 3 minutes walk from the beach. Fantastic facilities, staff & food and drink.
Cons: Non-alcoholic drinks don't count as part of happy hour (not great for my wife who doesn't drink). Room wasn't always 100% spotless after cleaning.
Location: Xi beach (3 mins walk) is fantastic...one of the best swimming beaches we have discovered in the Med. Water sports plus shallow & safe swimming.
We stayed for 10 days with our 8 year old daughter in mid-July 2016. We had previously stayed at the hotel for 7 days in 2014 at the same time of year. Having holidayed in a different country/resort last year, our daughter was adamant that we return to the Apollonion as we had had such a wonderful holiday two years ago. It was the first time that my wife or I had returned to a hotel/resort and the Hotel Apollonion was every bit as good as we remembered. This visit, we were upgraded from a family deluxe to a suite which we actually didn't want. When we went to reception to ask if there was a possibility of being down-graded again, they were so understanding and had us moved within two hours. This sort of helpfulness and customer service permeates every aspect of the hotel staff. The battery in our hire care went flat one morning - the maintenance team (completely of their own accord) sprang into action and eventually phoned the local rent-a-car place to bring round some jump leads. Within 3 minutes, the car was up and running again. Absolutely brilliant. The food in the buffet for breakfast and dinner is great - huge choice and always something for everyone; the view from the rooms (we were in 327) is stunning; the rooms are well appointed and stylish; the outdoor pool and sunbeds are just right; and the cocktail of the day was sampled religiously! Superb holiday and we will definitely return to the Hotel Apollonion for a third time at some point in the future.

Good food at the hotel

Posted Jul 14, 2016
Pros: Location, food, most of the personnel
Cons: Towels fro swimming pool should be handed out rather that collected from reception! That was a bit unfair and not reflecting a proper 5 star hotel!
Location: All good and nicely located
Hotel pretty good, and located near main town of Lixouri and the port to Argostolion

thank you very much for your comments. Sorry about the discomfort of the pool towels but it turns out to be the only way to control this service. We had it free and available in the room before but at the end of the season more than 1000 towels were missing.

Very good resort

Posted Jul 12, 2016
Pros: Staff, Cleanliness, grounds.
Cons: The double bed in our room was two singles pushed together, not ideal.
Location: A very quiet resort and area, as the whole island is. A car is not essential as the beach is only 300m but is advisable if you wan to see the island.
We had a fantastic stay at the Appolonion Resort & Spar. The staff are extremely polite coupled with the overall cleanliness of the resort makes for a very relaxing holiday. The upkeep of the resort should also be mentioned as it a credit to the and owners.

Thank you very much for the time taken to write your review. All our beds in the hotel rooms are single. In the case of a double bed request, we always put immediately another matrass on top of the 2 singles. This information is included in the guest services directory. You only had to dial 0. Please do not hesitate to ask us on anything that worries you next time you are at the Apollonion.

Well kept hotel with excellent service and food

Posted Sep 24, 2015
Pros: Food and service but also little touches like complimentary wine and fresh fruit on arrival
Location: It is situated on the west side of the island on the peninsula. From the airport it is a 30 mins drive plus a 30 mins ferry ride to get there
We had a fabulous weeks stay at this hotel in September and we found it very good value and hard to beat on service and food. The rooms were spotless and very comfortable? The pool area was always very clean and never too busy to find a bed for sunbathing. The nearby beach was slightly disappointing though as it was just a thin strip of sand with lots of sun beds and I prefer something a bit quieter. Saying that however the sea and sand where very clean. It is advisable to hire a car, as the hotel is quite remote and it is worth exploring the island. We like the Petonai beach which was a drive down a hillside but well worth it. All in all though I wouldn't hesitate in returning to this hotel as the standard was high in all aspects.
