Pallini Beach Hotel
Travel Blogs from Kassandra
... from our apartment we have a great beach, nice for swimming. The water is admittedly cool by Muscat standards but even I have had a good long swim. The area is very nice, good beaches, lots of restaurants and bars but obviously aimed a families rather than the 'young' crowd. Interestingly lots of Bulgarian and Rumanian cars here and I would agree a better choice than the Black Sea. The prices are 'European' though and twice as much as we paid in ...
... of badly pronounced in Russian and Arabic. I spoke Arabic in Turkey and Russian in Bulgaria, it was good for shopping.
Bulgaria has beautiful countryside but I found the towns depressing, all those rotting concrete blocks of apartments and every pavement broken and derelict. The government must be both corrupt and incompetent and it's a tough burden for the population. There has been a massive brain drain, it's the ...
... time at the gym and spa then by night we enjoyed our drink at the elegantly decorated lobby.
We decided that it was worthwhile to return and enjoy all this with sunny weather too and get a chance to enjoy the sea too!Final Realization: To people who love or need a small outing and change of scenery, weather is never an obstacle but maybe an ally and opportunity of a different sort of experiences!

... and a bit of german! He brought us to the Sani resort even though he didnt need to go there, and told us: Money-problem call me! We still are surprised by all the good people in the world and after the trip we decided to share all the positivity even more!!:) In Sani resort we found a cheap camping. The resort is a fancy place for mostly russian people, but the sea is just amazing. We met Despina, after i think ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Pallini Beach Hotel Kassandra
Ok, it was my fault, i booked this holiday online without checking any reviews first. Big, Huge mistake. It was awful. Really.
I stayed at this hotel for a week and believe me it was not a good idea.
Not a 4 star hotel
We had a nice holiday in Chalkidiki but we had a few problems in this Hotel.
We stayed two weeks in the bungalows Ira Village and we found out that the staff was not very friendly and not very helpful.
The food was good and also the beach.
Our room was not really clean and we had some problems with the toilet were we didn't get the excepted help for a four star hotel.
Additionally we didn't get clean towels.
Hotel is ok but hasn't got the standard of a four star hotel.
this was the first holiday my boyfriend and i took together and his first time abroad. we had a fantastic time. we booked it as a late deal and were given one of the beach bungalows meant for 4 people. the views were brilliant, the sea was absolutely crystal clear. we found the staff in the beach bar to be very friendly drinks were quite expensive but then we were drinking cocktails all the time!!!my boyfriend had his birthday while we were there so i ordered a bottle of champagne to be brought to the bungalow on the morning. the staff were very helpful about this and made a great fuss of him when we went into breakfast. we had two regular waiters a guy and a girl unfortunately i can't remember thier names now but they were so nice and friendly. toward the end of our holiday we discovered the nearby hanioti which we loved the bars were lively without being too loud and we met some wonderful people. it's well worth hiring a car as the next penninsula along is very very beautiful. we also took a trip to thessaloniki but the temperature was well into the 40's and we didn't enjoy it much at all. all in all we had an absolutely wonderful holiday and would definately go back.
i just came back from this so-called 4 star hotel and was not too impressed. i was surprised that the hotel didn't provide beach towels (they suggested we buy them from their shop at 25E each) and that we had to pay for the use of sunbeds and umbrellas - 3E for a bed and 2.50 for an umbrella! i also had a bad experience at the beach bar, the drinks were a complete rip-off and the staff totally ignored me for ages (there were no other customers waiting) as they were watching football, then they didn't have the ingredients for the cocktail i ordered (a manhattan) and they put hardly any alcohol in my drink saying that it would be too strong (because i am female?)! i found the fish taverna on the beach quite unappealing too as i kept trying to order food from the menu but was repeatedly told it was unavailable, these included sardines, a green salad and lamb-hardly unusual items. food in the main restaurant was buffet style every night, it was ok but at a 4 star hotel i would expect an a la carte alternative (included in the price) to be available at least every other day. many people complained about the food but i found it quite acceptable, some greek food but it mostly caters for the many german and russian guests that stay there. the actual bedrooms were fine and have the added bonus of a sea view, i would have liked to have been able to use the fridge though, but it was locked and i would have to pay to open it. the staff are ok but i get the feeling they arent paid much and are exploited a little by the hotel, the boy collecting money for the sunbeds works a 9 hour shift everyday with no breaks unless the beach is not busy. the beach is nice and the sea clean but i would highly recommend choosing a different hotel to this - Athos palace next door is very nice as is the sani beach resort. the next penninsula is also very beautiful and deserves a visit
Lovely relaxing holiday
having just spent a week at the pallini hotel in Aug 04 I could not fault it, we stayed in the bungalows,so close to the beech, food was good, stafff pleasent and helpful. a great holiday and would certainly go back.
I have just come back from a 2 week holiday at Hotel Pallini Beach which is in a 5 star perfect position right next to the beach. the reception is dully lit up and doesnt consist of a clock so you can never now what time it is. when i ask for change or for my key the roll there eyes and give the impression that they cant be botherd. the lifts take about 5 min to come down to you and are verry grotty inside i was stuck in the lifts 3 times when i went. the maids do an excelent job keeping the hotel neet my room was beutiful and well looked after and my view was stunning. the pool was verry dangerous the stairs leeding into it were rusting and moved. there were alot of broken tiles and the water was salt water not chlorine making it unhygenic and not verry clear , i used to swim in the sister hotel Athos Palace whos pool was verry nice and modern. the beach was well looked after and the sea was as clear as glass, i even sore wild dolphins the the beach bar mare was verry well run and i would like to take this oppertunity to say that the watersports were excelent and worth trying. The food in the hotel resturant was dire it was the worst i have ever had and it made me ill every night .the breakfast was the same everyday and the evening meal was all mainly fish but i have to admit there were the odd super things like the Chiniease night. the desserts were always the same evry night the resturant was badly air conditiond which made you sticky whilst you ate . so me and my family always sat outside where the service was always excelent my waiter costus was great and verry freindly . but the food was lovley in the pool bar downstairs . the games room didnt have enough games in it , the entertainment at night was awful , and i was bored to death all holiday . this hotel is an ideal place for couples old and young and for young children (1-11) but for ages (12-18) it is sooooooooooooooooooooo boring. over all i would give this hotel *** not ****
It was fantastic!!!
I had stayed at Pallini Beach Hotel in August this year and I myself thought it was brilliant. The entertainment could of been improved a bit. The food was delicious-and the waiters there were very friendly too. I would love to come back and visit again in a few years time to see some Greek people I had met that worked there.
Pallini Beach is close to perfect
Pallini Beach Hotel has everything you would need, all in one place: A beatuful beach, close to town, close to a big city (@45 minute drive from the airport). Perfect beach bar, sunsets, sunrises. A decent taverna with nightly music, a great-size pool, a snack bar, a mini-mart - and much more. Also available: Pool (billiards), miniature golf, video games and inernet access cafe. It even has a movie theater on the premises. Bars and nightclubs within walking distance. Love the place and try to go back at least every two years - best time to go: Summer!
