Beautiful view of PelionPosted Sep 16, 2016
Pros: The staff were helpful and friendly, but not in-your-face. The location was lovely. The restaurant served local food prepared more creatively.
Cons: The carpets needed cleaning. Local herbal teas at breakfast would be better than Liptons.
Location: The Condos House in Anakasia with the walls of its entire 2nd floor painted by Theophilos is the reason we were there. Makrinitsa also lovely.
We were at the Xenia Palace in mid-September and there weren't many other guests, but the hotel was well and professionally staffed. Breakfast was quite good, although not the best ever: coffee and tea were mediocre, although Greek coffee could be obtained from the bar. We had a lovely big room with a balcony overlooking the pool and the slopes down to Volos, but the pool was too cold to swim in comfortably.

Not much charmePosted May 5, 2015
The hotel is a large complex from the 60s without much charme. But there is a stunning view from the restaurant and from many rooms. I was there on May 1st and the pool was still empty .... That's sad. Rooms are clean but not so large. I would rate it more as a 3 stars.

Nice, family oriented hotel, with great view.Posted Aug 5, 2014
We stayed for two nights where we enjoyed the high quality of service and the facilities. The pool is nice and enjoyed sitting under the umbrellas. There were mainly families with kids giving a friendly atmosphere. The food is better at the veranda and at the nearby village, while the hotel has nice breakfast. High quality Greek resort for family vacations in a very nιice area of Greece. The stuff was very helpful and facilitated our needs. The only negative point, they should offer to bring the luggage to the room upon arrival and have transport service to Volos.

"Would like to go back", "not in winter as we do not ski", "therefore April/May would be better for us".

High in class and locationPosted Sep 23, 2010 on Hotels
We spent one night in Xenia Palace. Before this we had one night in 4 star hotel in Athens and it was really, really bad. That made me think the whole 4-star concept in Greece - what if all hotels are like that? Well luckily I was proven wrong by Xenia Palace Portaria. I can't point a single bad thing about the hotel. We had one complaint though, but the reception handeled the matter so well that I think I don't even mention here as the problem was swiftly corrected. Location of the hotel is beautiful! Although you have to drive quite a while from Volos to get there as the serpentine roads take a long time to drive. They are in really good shape though and with the roadside full of restaurants and cafes I see no point in going to Volos? A really memorable stay and I'd sure come again!
