Attended a wedding at this hotel. Staff very friendly and responsive. Very nice private beach and poolside area. Buffet style meals, with a la carte available but for a premium price. Buffet was ok but not great. Poor WIFI reception on property. Overall good value for price

Stayed at this hotel for 13 days with my girlfriend in August 2016. We received a very genuine welcome from the lovely Maria at reception upon arrival. The Hotel Porfi Beach is very beautiful, the various plants and trees surrounding the buildings create wonderful surroundings.

The room is not bad. The pluses - comfortable bed, a TV with many international channels, a small cooler/refrigerator, and an air conditioning unit. The minuses - only one power socket available, the shower has no door/guard so the bathroom gets very wet and messy, full of mosquitoes at night.

The hotel has a nice pool, with a full pool bar service and friendly staff, especially Katerina. There is also a towel service which is very useful.

Further down some steps is the hotel's own beach. There is a volley ball net set up, and various deck chairs/loungers. This part of the beach is very nice, but we only used it the once, as the beaches in Nikiti are nice, but this is good if you don't want to make the trip to the town.

The food at the hotel varied from basic to very good. The breakfast buffet had good options which varied from fresh bread, cereals, coffee and juices, to hot dishes like scrambled eggs, sausages, pastries etc. During the day, the pool bar provides full drinks options, but only a few limited food choices like a toasted sandwich or a cheese plate.
The afternoon and evenings the a la carte restaurant was open, the food here was almost always very very good and the waitress Anna was very friendly and helpful. We had many lunches and dinners from this restaurant, and we were happy every time. There was also a buffet dinner option in the other restaurant, but we did not use that so cannot comment. Highly recommend the mix grill from the restaurant, all the meat in Greece is very good quality.

Overall, the experience was very good, but there were a few things which would prevent me from coming back. There was a very bad sewage smell, and we encountered it every single day, sometimes we would smell it in the evenings also, it was very strong and off putting. There are very many mosquitoes in this region at night, which I found very irritating (this is obviously not the hotel's fault, but it did take away from our enjoyment and from previous visits to some of the Greek islands we did not expect problems with mosquitoes).

The hotel is about 6 km from Nikiti beach/town, and this part of Halkidiki is popular with holiday makers who drive here, if you don't have a car then you are really restricted in getting to Nikiti from the hotel. There is not a path on the main road, and the taxi services are not reliable and have very low availability. This was quite frustrating as there were several times when we could simply not get a taxi to collect us at the hotel.

Would recommend Hotel Porfi beach for families, or someone who is looking for a quiet holiday, but be aware there is not so much to do in the local area.

Tip - ensure you go on the Kayaking trip in nearby Vourvourou, by far the best tourist activity in the area.

Pluses: Hotel location, pool, personnel kindness from pool bar, very good a la carte restaurant

Minuses: very old refurbishments in the room (tiles, A.C., water installations), a lot of mosquitoes, reception personnel not too helpful (I reserved ground floor, they explained me that is different from "garden", regarding extension of the trip..), not a very nice beach but payable sunbeds

In July 2015 I was in this hotel with my family, for 10 nights. Location is great too. I can't believe that lunch needs to be paid. We were in the room near the pool, the keys that make electricity are making noise.. Food was not bad but there's no healthy things (almost). In 5th night there was, well, marriage, party, I don't know what, at the pool. Music was SO loud and I wasn't be able to sleep for 1 hour. My child got injured because of the sea hedgehog.
I'll recommend this hotel but you should not stay more than 10 days.

Room Tip: Rooms as far as possible from the restaurant
