Clean and functional, small rooms, mostly good, friendly staff, good position with a pool next door if you don't like the stoney beach. The Hotel needs new room linen, sheets and towels should not be frayed! The interesting corner jacuzzi bath/shower curtain doesn't work, screen needed. Food is good quality but mostly cold - warm, perhaps the heated serving unit...

Just returned from this hotel and could not be happier with our choice. We paid extra for a sea view but it was well worth it. It is situated in a great location, just across the road from the beach. The staff, from the reception to the dining area and the cleaners were all wonderful and very pleasant. We got...

We have just returned after staying for 2 weeks b/b at this lovely hotel. The rooms have been modernised and are kept spotlessly clean. The staff on reception are very friendly and helpful. We woudn't hesitate to recommend the Alianthos Beach Hotel, and look forward to returning ourselves.

Stumbled across this place after getting 10% off from hiring a sunbed. We had Carbonara - I think they thought they were feeding all the visitors to the beach that day, because they weren't stingy with portion size & it wasn't short of the dearer ingredients ! Thus we went back for an evening meal. Fully welcomed into the restaurant,...

We have eat here for 5 years and each year the standard keeps slipping. This year we had the buffet which was absolutely horrible. It was cold at 7.30 in the evening. Fortunately the deserts was Really good as you cannot go wrong with Greek yoghurt and fruit and sweet cakes. We also felt rushed because the complimentary raki was...

I have not stayed at The Alianthos Beach.. but have eaten there very many times over recent years. The main feature of the restaurant is a very wide ranging buffet.. come back for top ups.. for 9 Euros.. excellent value for money. There is also a good a la carte menu. Obviously the buffet is immediately available while a la...

We just spent 4 nights at the apartments which belong to the hotel. It had a view of the sea, great bathroom, big balcony and fantastic wifi. The beds were very hard but the place is great value nonetheless. Highlight: the staff were wonderful - great advice about secret beaches etc.

My husband and I stayed here for a part of our honeymoon! The staff, from the receptionist, servers, chefs, maids and family members were wonderful. Specially the receptionists they were so eager to help us with almost everything; luggage to our room, what do do in the area and other locations, even suggested listening to live performance by some local...
