Our favourite rooms

If you’re travelling with a tiny baby (not a speedy crawler) or swim-confident kids, book a Two-Bedroom Bungalow with a private pool. These are the resort’s most stylish stays, with gleaming white walls and linens, brightened with colourful glass lamps and furnished with local finds. Junior Suites comfortably fit a family of four in an open-plan bedroom and living room, and Junior Suite Sea Front 236 offers a cosy set up (kids on extra beds, parents in the double bed), but its large enough for little ones to run around in, with a balcony, and a separate bath tub and shower. Superior Sea View 115B has romantic blue views of layered sea and sky from the balcony, yet it’s large enough to sleep Mum, Dad and a baby.


The main seawater pool is surrounded by sprigs of herbs and flowerbeds alongside rows of sunloungers; it's unsupervised, but juniors are welcome, and parents can keep watch from the swim-up bar. Very little ones can paddle in the petite, shallow children’s pool a few steps away (with parents keeping watch). The indoor-outdoor spa pool is a serene, child-free space.


Eagles Spa is a low-lit space composed of glass and sandstone, where a calmly trickling waterfall feature greets you, and therapists do wonders with Elemis and Apivita products. Facials; exotic wraps and scrubs infused with coconut or frangipani; mani-pedis and massages are carried out in three treatment rooms; however, you can be pampered under a pavilion on the beach or in your villa. You can also recline in the steam bath or sauna, swim in the indoor-outdoor spa pool, or sling mud – in the best possible fashion – in a rhassoul chamber. For deep pampering, opt for a day package or lengthy spa ritual. The small fitness centre has TechnoGym equipment and personal trainers on request, and free yoga, pilates and aqua aerobics classes are held frequently.

Packing tips

The hotel has a trove of baby essentials if you start to run low.


Public areas are wheelchair accessible and prams can be trundled about with ease.


Dogs stay free (up to 5kgs), but are not allowed in restaurants or bars. See more pet-friendly hotels in Halkidiki.


Baby cots can be added to all rooms (excluding the Standard Room and Junior Suite Sea Front with Jacuzzi categories) free, and children stay free on twin beds, rollaway beds and sofabeds.


Family heirlooms dating back four generations dot Eagles Palace’s lobby, and many of its dedicated staff have worked for la famiglia in charge for 10 years and counting, which is probably why this resort feels so homey and welcoming despite its large size. Parents will be cracking open the Ouzo on learning that little Smiths’ activities are legion; with pools, aquatic adventuring, sandcastles, and action-packed clubs, adults can eke out a good chunk of alone time here. However, beach barbecues, excursions to local villages and spacious family bungalows with private pools foster quality time too. Add high-end Hellenic service and intriguing takes on Grecian cuisine – feta croquettes with orange sauce, octopus and tomato skioufichta pasta and sea-fresh scallops in lemon pureé – and you have a sophisticated stay with a knack for entertaining smalls.


The private beach – with soft golden sands stroked by unruffled aquamarine waters – is the star of this resort. If sunbathing’s too sedate pick your aquatic adventures in the watersports pavilion, or play in the two sociable swimming pools. Take to the tennis court as a family, or leave little ones to be entertained in the bright and lively kids clubs, which will allow parents a little time to be buffed and scrubbed in a couples treatment room at the spa.


The resort sources ingredients from very local suppliers where possible.

Food and Drink

Top Table

Spend a languid evening on Kamares’ sea-facing terrace if dining as a twosome. Washi’s chefs put on a performance in the open kitchen, so try to get a front-row seat for the family. Kids can be let loose in the gardens afterwards.

Hotel restaurant

Excellent ingredients are sourced from local farms and growers, and four eateries ensure the luxury of choice. Kamares is for grown-up fine dining; quality produce (lobster, wagyu beef) is served up alongside flavour-packed Grecian dishes (petoura pasta in a feta cream sauce; lamb with red trahana (powdered yoghurt), sprinkled with local herbs and lime). Armyra offers jazzed-up Greek favourites, such as goat’s cheese and feta croquettes, orzo pasta and very fresh fish, Melathron has a buffet spread, championing a different international cuisine each day; and sea-facing Washi’s fragrant Asian dishes are served in the resort’s gardens. Head to Eagles Café for coffee, light snacks and sticky-sweet pastries.

The resort’s all-day dining allows for flexible mealtimes, with a crowd-pleasing menu of simple snacks, from ham and cheese toasties, to sophisticated seafood dishes, which you can eat by the pool, on the beach or in-villa. Melathron’s lavish buffet and Armyra’s laid-back beach barbecues are our picks for dining en famille. All restaurants (except Kamares) have a kids menu with health-conscious dishes (velouté vegetable soup, fish croquettes and rainbow rice with seasonal veggies). Get a sugar rush at Eagles Café, where ice-creams, milkshakes and smoothies make a decadent menu. Highchairs are available in Melathron, and in all restaurants but Kamares, colouring books will divert little Smiths between courses, and restaurant staff are happy to heat up milk and baby food. While little Smiths are warmly welcomed, staff may not appreciate over-excited tots running wild in the dining areas. 

Hotel bar

Eagles Club has an open-air terrace and a buzzy the indoor bar if you want to socialise. Wines are a speciality and cocktails tend towards the classics, with live music to accompany. For mid-swim refreshments, paddle over to Armyra’s swim-up bar; or hit Ammos Beach Bar, where fresh-fruit-laced cocktails are served on the sands. Sample fine Greek and international wines at a tasting in Vinum cellar; paired snacks reflect where each wine hails from: bruschetta to enhance European bouquets, paprika-sprinkled kabobs with Middle Eastern labels, and seafood tacos with US vintages.

Last orders

A Grecian breakfast buffet is laid out in Melathron from 7am–10.30am, followed by an evening buffet from 7.30pm–10.30pm. Take lunch in Armyra (1pm–5pm), or Eagles Café (9am–5pm), then dine in Washi or Kamares (both open from 8pm–11pm).

Room service

Four kinds of breakfast (7am–12 noon); soups, salads, pastas, fresh seafood and meat dishes (12 noon–11pm); and cold plates, such as crêpes, salads, cheese and charcuterie platters, and fruit plates (all-day long), can be delivered to your suite.

Thessaloniki ‘Macedonia’ Airport is the closest international hub, a 90-minute drive from the hotel. Budget airlines Ryanair and Easyjet fly frequently from the UK, and flights from the US and Asia connect via Munich and Frankfurt, or Istanbul. Transfers can be arranged through the resort.


A car will help for easy exploration of the rural surrounds. On-site parking is free. From the airport follow the A25 to Agiou Oros Road to reach the hotel; the path is surrounded by dense foliage, so keep an eye out for the car park. There’s an Avis car-hire booth at the airport.

Worth getting out of bed for

Halkidiki of legend was a battleground for giants, but frazzled parents will be pleased to hear that it’s calmed down somewhat throughout the ages. The foliage-strewn surrounds are as serene as the monks in Mount Athos’ monasteries and there’s little need to leave the resort unless you want to. Much of your time will be spent playing on and splashing about by its Blue Flag, golden sandy beach. It’s safe for children, with calm waters, but unsupervised; towels and day-beds are free, and parasol tables have a built-in buzzer for drinks service. Snorkelling and scuba sessions (including a Bubblemaker programme for over-8s) can be arranged at the on-site Padi dive centre, too. Hire a small self-rowed boat or a skipper-tended yacht from the watersports pavilion to glide along the coast past Mount Athos, cleave the aquamarine waters of the Sithonia Peninsula or sail to beach-blessed Vourvourou and Ammouliani islands; the family who own the hotel are sailing enthusiasts, so can point you in the right direction if needed. Biking trips (14km, 20km or 32km) take in the Xerxes Canal, surrounding peaks and the beach at Komitsa.  Hiking and biking may be a bit too full on for little Smiths, but Ouranoupolis village – a five-minute drive south from the hotel – has Byzantine monuments and pretty beaches. Eye up some icons in Prosphoriou Castle, and the mosaics and archaeological intrigues of Zigou Monastery; or head inland to Stagira, the birthplace of Aristotle, where kids can play with prisms, compasses and nifty interactive experiments in the science park dedicated to the great philosopher (+30 (0)2377 021130). Ierissos Village is a 15-minute drive away, where ancient Serbian monastery Hilandar has intact colourful frescoes and the cultural centre shows 3D movies on a 50-square-metre screen. The resort can arrange excursions to Platanorema Farm (+30 (0)2372 300386) for horse riding, archery and a climbing wall. Or kids can feed and pet the resident donkeys, ponies and rabbits.

The hotel can arrange a day trip to Petralona Cave ( The stalagmite and stalactite-strung caverns may be a little scary for wee Smiths, but older kids may find it mesmerising.

The hotel's Artist in Residence Programme showcases the best Grecian talent. While kids are playing in the club, parents should sneak away and snoop around.
