If you have small kids, ask the hotel to be close to the reception since there are many stairs in this hotel. There is a shuttle to get to the beach...

We visited as a couple. The all inclusive deal was ok, not more...food at the pool during the day was very uninspiring and we failed to understand what the fuss is all about. Our room was with sea view so it was very nice, also very close to the reception and the main pool, as opposed to other cheaper rooms....

Fabulous weather for the whole week we stayed at the Athina Palace 7-14 Oct. Family of 3. I booked a seaview upgraded room via Monarch (£880 ) and prior to arrival I emailed guest relations to request if possible a room near to Relax pool/reception. We had room 204 which was just perfect (and only 50 steps to the pool)....

As the title says, this hotel is not 5 star. However, it's a fantastic hotel. The setting is spectacular. Admittedly, the room needs updating but it's still of a good standard. The hotel, as previously mentioned in other reviews, is massive with a lot of walking dependent on where your room is. We were in 730 & had a small...
