Amy Adejokun Section editor

The Meliton Hotel is part of the Porto Carras Grand Resort which includes four hotels, a casino, an 18-hole golf course and a marina. This estate of titanic dimensions is particularly recommended for families: the children are free to run around while the grown-ups take part in various activities. Although its dimensions make it look like a tourist factory, the space and the way that the activities are organised is intelligently thought out, in order to avoid crowding.

    Location 3.0 /10

    The Meliton, standing within the Porto Carras estate, is located 80 mi from Thessaloniki, hence a 1 hour 20 minute drive from the airport. It is not far from the village of Marmaras, which consists of boutiques and restaurants. It is accessible by land or sea. A taxi-boat, which belongs to the hotel, takes care of the trip (until 1:00 am, £1.80 a trip).

    Accommodation 7.95 /10

    The access to the rooms isn't the easiest thing ever. They are organised around long corridors which look like a maze. However, the double standard room is a wonderful reward when you emerge from the maze. It is spacious enough for you not to feel cramped. The bed is actually as large as a king size bed. The decoration is simple but tasteful. The quality level goes down when you enter the bathroom though, especially when you compare it to the facilities available in the main room. There are English, German and Greek channels. The rooms, all with little balconies, open on to three different views: the garden, the marina or the bay. The last two are the prettiest.

    Overview 7.20 /10

    The Meliton was built in the 1970's but was completely restored in 2003. Just like the nearby Sithonia hotel, you will find all sorts of boutiques in the reception hall such as a jewellery shop or even a grocery shop. The hairdressing salon and spa are located underground.
    The hotel is part of the Porto Carras complex. It also has another 18-hole golf course stretching over 190 acres, tennis courts and football pitches. A horse-riding centre is available close-by. It has a good reputation and an international competition is organised at the end of September.
    As for swimming, two lagoon-shaped pools are available, as well as a paddling pool for children. You have a choice of salted or fresh water! Children have also not been forgotten. There is a kids club which holds a playground with a slide, swings and other facilities.
    The hotel has a water sports activity centre with all the usual activities: windsurfing, jet skiing, etc. The marina can host 325 sailing boats. It is actually possible to hire a boat for a few days or weeks.

    Food and drink 7.20 /10

    The Meliton has four restaurants including three à la carte. The Athos is the main restaurant where half-boarders can help themselves to a buffet: breakfast and dinner. It offers a pretty view of the marina and the garden with the swimming pool. You can have your meals on the pretty terrace. The buffet is quite varied; and for breakfast, you will find a choice of sweet specialities (cakes, pastries, jams) and savoury ones (potatoes, bacon, scrambled eggs, cheeses), without forgetting the selection of fruit. The coffee from the menu is an American coffee, if you like espresso you will be charged extra. Finally, you can dine à la carte at the Crystal, opposite the marina.

    Beach 6.95 /10

    Roughly 330 ft from the hotel - you have to walk through the gardens - the main beach with parasols and deckchairs stretches over several metres. Another special VIP beach is reserved for Porto Carras's important guests. 25 private beaches (no deckchairs or parasols) can be found beyond the marina. They are accessible on foot or with the small shuttle available to the hotel's guests. Its relatively remote location adds a pleasant feeling of peacefulness to this huge complex.

    To know

    If you wish to go to the airport, a hotel shuttle can take you there.
    Anyone under 23 cannot enter the casino.
    The Porto Carras estate is located inland. The resort's vineyards stretch out over 1,174 acres. Red and white wine are produced. The wine is now beginning to have a good reputation in Greece.
