Just back from a week here, very impressed with the place and the staff. Service levels amazing, facilities good, food very good. The staff really make the place - going above and beyond time and again. Special mention to the guys at the Deluxe pool (Sophia, Georgios, Eva and crew) - they were amazing throughout our trip. Also Tatiana and her team at the main buffet restaurant - consistently cheerful and offering excellent service. Would highly recommend this place.....we'll be back I'm sureMore
This was our first stay at the Ikos Oceania â but it definitely wonât be our last â we are already planning a return trip! I visited with my parents and we had a wonderful two week holiday. Since returning home a couple of weeks ago we have recommended the hotel to many of our friends ... and I still have a touch of post-holiday blues â¦ both good indications that we had an excellent time! Here are some of our main highlights: FANTASTIC STAFF The staff here really do stand out, for all the right reasons, everyone is so happy, helpful and friendly. Walking through the lobby every morning, it was so nice to be greeted by cheers of âkalimeraâ from all of the reception staff, it made for such a nice start to the day â very different to the grumbles I am usually confronted with in the morning! Every single member of staff I encountered, no matter what area of the hotel they worked in and at what level, seemed genuinely happy to be at Ikos Oceania and to engage with the guests. As well as being so pleasant, everybody works incredibly hard, some of the same members of staff we saw working morning, noon and night, day after day, but they still always had a smile for you. There were a few people in particular that really stood out to us, and helped to make our stay so memorable â¦ In Flavors Restaurant, Margarita â so warm and friendly, she really looked after us whenever we were in the âgrown-upsâ area. Maria at the main Aqua Pool â such a sweetheart! The very lovely Theo from the Fitness, Sports & Activities team - managed not to laugh at me when I almost fell over in one of his TRX classes - just a genuinely incredibly nice, encouraging and positive person whenever I saw him. CLEANLINESS, DESIGN & DECOR: The hotel is spotless, it is constantly being cleaned and everything inside looks brand new throughout, including the accommodation areas (we were in building 1). There are colourful landscaped gardens that were also always being tended to. The hotel is very cleverly designed, it somehow makes the most of its slightly hilly location, the reception is on the top floor and everything else flows out organically from the levels below. The dÃ©cor is divine, I was constantly admiring one piece of furniture or another. Every detail at the hotel has been thought through, even down to the staff uniforms, which reflected the taupe and blue colour scheme and the natural hues of the beach and sea around us. POOLS, BEACH & ACTIVITIES The pool areas are brilliant, when we visit again we think weâll station ourselves at the quiet pool by Provence restaurant, although I quite liked the noise and hustle of the families in the main pool area. We are quite early risers, and were usually amongst the first people down at the pool, but you could always find a sunbed at any time of the day. One of my main tests for a hotel is the sun loungers (strange I know), I have an aversion to hotels that have standard white plastic sun loungers with blue padded tops â bleurgh â but Ikos Oceania has lovely outdoor furniture, again in its signature taupe, with lovely squishy toppers, as comfy as a mattress. My mum isnât a fan of the beach (!), so I didnât get to spend much time down there, but I did go for a couple of walks and it was nice and clean. On our last night we also went to the beach party, there were little tea lights dotted everywhere and a really good live band, the beach was transformed from its daytime incarnation, and it looked so pretty. When we spoke to the general manager Savas â who was always walking around the site, talking to staff and guests, and overseeing that everything ran smoothly - he told us that the beach will be widened within a year; itâs great to know that investment like this is continually going back into the hotel. I would recommend to future guests that they get involved with whatâs on offer in terms of activities at the resort, just take an hour out of your day and do one of the many exercise classes on offer, or take a Greek lesson for example, youâll feel so much better for it. I personally believe that thereâs more to squeeze out of your holiday then just sunshine! The activities helped to give my day a bit of structure and it was good to break up what would otherwise have been a whole day on the sunbed. FOOD & DRINK: The catering was another high point. I am not usually a fan of big buffet restaurants, but the choice, availability and quality at the main restaurant Flavors, was amazing. Every evening the food was themed around a different cuisine, you could never get bored eating there. I am a very fussy vegetarian, but I was looked after very well, at each of the a la carte restaurants there was a whole page of vegetarian options for me to choose from. We really loved going to the French restaurant Provence for breakfast, it had such a calm ambience. Ouzo also opens for breakfast, and so we enjoyed mixing up our dining options. As well as breakfast, lunch and dinner, snacks were available at both Provence and Ouzo in between main meal times, so whenever you felt like, you could always find something to eat. In the evening at the a la carte restaurants you were also presented with a small pre starter/ amuse bouche â again another thoughtful touch. We each had a different favourite restaurant, mine was Ouzo, as in the evenings the setting was beautiful and the vegetarian options were many and varied. My Mum favoured Provence and my dad Anaya. Fusco was also great, and came a very close second place for all of us. The wine list was extensive and the local wines were very nice. The staff were wonderful at each restaurant too. The drinks throughout the resort were from recognisable brands, none of us ever went thirsty as the staff were super attentive â¦ and after testing various cocktails for research purposes, I can say that the Expresso Martinis and Mai Taiâs are particularly good! I also liked the sparkling wine. Even in your room the mini bar is topped up daily, and another sign of quality to me is that the hotel uses Absolut vodka, rather than Smirnoff â its little differences like this which elevate Ikos Oceania and make it so special. IN SUMMARY â¦ There really isnât anything worth mentioning to fault this hotel, it is an unlimited all-inclusive resort of the highest standard. As my dad doesnât enjoy long flights, itâs great that Thessaloniki airport is only 3 hours from London, and as soon as you arrive at Ikos Oceania youâll be treated like a VIP. I usually struggle to switch off from work, but even I instantly started to relax. One suggestion I do have is that the hotel website could perhaps benefit from having some extra content. Visually the site is very appealing, but the information in many of the sections is quite top line, and when I was trying to find out more about what was available at the hotel in advance of us going, I couldnât really find what I was looking for. This was a very special holiday for us and I look forward to returning again soon for another unforgettable stay.More
We visited the Ikos Oceania for a week in July. We enjoyed it very much it is a beautiful resort, staff are great food is great we visited all the restaurants on site and we found the Asian to be our favorite overall. The buffet is also very very good. We had a junior suite in building one right at the end on the top floor which suited us as we were away from everything. If I have one moan about the resort it is the fact that they have deluxe areas which have its own pool they have their own lounge and a separate area on the beach, I dont agree with this as I think an all inclusive resort should include every part of the resort for everyone. If you dont like lots of children you wont like the Oceania as their are loads of them. Overall We had a great time and would certainly recommend it to anyone especially those with children.More

This was our first stay here and I am sure it will not be our last. The hotel, rooms, and amenities are very well kept, albeit there are a few birds nests around which create some mess but I guess they can't help that. The food is excellent in all the restaurants and the staff are all very friendly and cannot do enough for you. I favourite evening restaurant was the greek restaurant. The manager Theo is a great guy. Unfortunately this was also the only restaurant we had poor service at lunchtime, but maybe the staff were having a bad day? We would like to mention Tatiana at the desk who was fantastic and also all the staff at the luxury pool who really could not do enough. Their attention was sublime. We unfortunately had to use the in house doctor on 2 occasions. There was no queeing or need to make appointments and they were all excellent. Thank you very much Ikos for a great holidayMore
From start to finish this holiday was wonderful. We had a standard sea view room with the most comfortable bed and pillows we have ever experienced in a hotel. Food was excellent. Service was excellent. Entertainment was good. The nearby town is a working town and the problems with the Greek economy were very evident there but worth a visit to see the working port and the lovely church. I broke my phone charger whilst at the Oceania and was able to by a good quality replacement in the town. WiFi in the hotel was excellent, worked well enough to actually stream video in the room and by the pool. Spotlessly clean and the customer service in all areas that was simply second to none. The only negative was that the sea view was had paid extra for was actually a view of the horizon over the top of the roof of the building in front of us. We liked the location of the room within the complex though. We have never returned to a hotel for a second time for holiday purposes but this one I'm sure we will return too simply because it ticked every box and more. More
