On my recent tip to Pieria organized by the Chamber of Pieria, myself along with my fellow travel bloggers from Travel Bloggers Greece had the pleasure of staying in the Mediterranean Village hotel.
As soon as we arrived at the hotel the doormen took our luggage and we headed to the spacious reception area. We received a friendly welcome from the reception team and were quickly given our room keys. The doormen then drove each of us to our rooms and carried our luggage.
My room was allocated on the first floor. It was very spacious and bright and had all the modern amenities needed to make my stay comfortable like an air – condition, a LCD TV, free wi-fi, a safe and a double wardrobe.
My double bed was incredibly comfortable with crisp white sheets and fluffy dawn pillows. It was exactly what I needed after a full day exploring the attractions of the area.
The bathroom was well stocked with a wide choice of toiletries, fluffy bath robes, towels slippers and a bathtub perfect for soaking.
A welcome gift of local products courtesy of the Chamber of Pieria was waiting for me in my room which was a very nice gesture.
As soon as settled into the room I opened the doors and found myself in my private balcony with an amazing view of the sea and the hotel’s private beach. There was a table and two chairs in the balcony perfect for relaxing and enjoying the view. Even if it was March I couldn’t resist so I immediately headed to the beach.
The private beach stretches for 650 m and has powdery golden sand. During the summer months there are 4 beach bars , sun beds, umbrellas and inflated sea toys for children. Although it was still winter when we visited we had a great time walking on the beach, taking photos and collecting some marvelous sea shells that the beach was full with.
The majestic Olympus mountain with the white snowy peaks that overlooks the golden sandy beach make the view incredibly dramatic and very peaceful at the same time.
The hotel has a lot of facilities like playground for children, a mini market, many outdoor pools, an indoor swimming pool, a gym, a spa with sauna, steam room, whirlpool and a lot of massages and treatments.
There are a lot of dining options as well. “Paprika”, a Greek restaurant with live music in the summer, “Asterias” which is a fish bar, “Souvlaki” with Greek traditional specialties, “Erato” the main restaurant that serves breakfast and dinner, “Dolce Crema” for desserts, “Captain’s” a lounge bar and “Ammos” an all day bar. Each restaurant has its own menu, decor and style.
Every morning there was an expansive breakfast buffet with anything you can imagine. A wide choice of breads, cakes, pastries, traditional pies, cereals, nuts, dried fruits, jams, fresh fruits and vegetables, yogurt, cream cheese, juices, milk, cheese and hams. Also there was a choice of cooked breakfast with fried eggs, scrabbled eggs, beans, sausages, bacon and pan cakes. I am sure I have left a lot out since there were too many.
All the people working at the hotel were very helpful and polite, they made us feel at home.
Mediterranean Village is a 5 star hotel perfect for families and for holidays all year round. My stay there was an absolute delight and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a luxurious hotel in an incredible location.
My stay at the Mediterranean Village was complimentary as part of my press trip to Pieria organized by the Chamber of Pieria. As always opinions are my own.
