Situated on a road about a 10 minute walk out of town, this wonderful hotel/apartment complex is possibly the quietest place I have stayed in years. At night you can hear a pin drop or even the buzzing sound of a passing mosquito.

Most recent traveler reviews:
Traveled as a couple. Nice hotel good prices and good location, about 200 m from beach.
Rooms were spaceous and clean. Good view from mount Olympos. Nice bathroom. Pool area is nice, sunbeds are ok.
Breakfast was not very various. A lot of tavernas around the center.
The owner was helpful but very skimp and always watching you. It can be annoying.
First my story:
Me and my family (4 adults and 1 child) reserved since February 2014 at Hotel Zeus Platamonas, 2 double rooms including the difference asked for the child. We received a good price, as we were in early booking period. In August when we arrived, at check in, the owner asked us to pay once again the difference for the child. The sum was not big, but the way how he acted and his behavior when we stated that we are not willing to pay any difference as is already included in the room price ("if you don't like it, leave!") was really making us feeling uncomfortable. We checked in and postpone the problem later on to the check out moment.
As we were together with other friend families which were also asked to pay additional costs, at check out, we decided to not pay anything more than the agreed reservation. You can't imagine how the owner received our decision. He was really angry and he started to insult us. I traveled in many places in Europe using many accommodations from 2 to 5 stars hotels but what happened in this hotel was really beyond any imagination. I went in Greece to have a relaxing and recharging vacation and I found a hotel owner with no customer focus insulting directing me, my family and my friends destroying me all the good mood. I will not step in that hotel never again and never recommend it to anybody again (based on my recommendation prio to my accommodation, 2 colleagues and their families went this year to zeus hotel).
Now the review:
- Big rooms with AC, LCD, fridge, functional shower
- Pretty nice pool area
- Free wi-fi access
- The rooms are not looking as in the marketing pictures
- Breakfast with basic options and not always fresh(e.g. the eggs were sometime reused next day)
- Bathroom and floor not clean enough at the arrival
- Payment is always asked to be cash, even on internet is stated that credit cards are accepted.
- Owner with inadequate attitude regarding customers. He expressed in 2 occasions that he is always having troubles with romanians and called us gipsis
I`ve just came from Platamonas, Zeus Hotel. My room was exactly the same as one from internet photos. Everything was perfectly clean, with lot of towels every day. Hotel is in peaceful area surrounded with greenery but a few minutes walking from a nice sandy beach. Day temperatures was about 33 C, but nights was quite refreshing with about 20 C. Stuff was perfectly complaisant, and the Boss always around ready to chat and see if he can help in any way. Yes, I will come again. Vesna
Our stay in this hotel was a real pleasure. Extremely friendly staff and welcoming owners (they rrecommended us a fish restaurant in Platamonas and it was a really good choice).
The hotel has a great location. To get to the beach you need to walk 5-15 minutes depending on the area you prefer. The hotel is located between Platamonas and Nei Pori. Nei Pori is excellent for going to the beach (sandy) and Platamonas for going out in the evenings. For both directions we used car but they are also in walking distance( a little bit long though).
The room we had was spacious, with a balcony, new furniture, comfortable bed without footboard, nice modern shower, air conditioner,TV LCD, fridge, phone and hair dryer. The beds and pillows were really comfortable. Also the WI-FI was pretty good but on the 3rd floor was low. Warm water was always present for a shower, no matter the hour. Towels and sheets were changed every day.
There are 2 pools, very clean: one for babies and a normal one. All the mothers complained about the water from the small one because was much colder than the water from the normal one. The parking lot is pretty big, with many places.
The breakfast is basic and repetitive but pretty much contains everything you might want - fried and hard boiled eggs, small frankfurters, tomatoes, olives, savory pastries, Greek yoghurt, jams, cheese, butter, cornflakes, watermelon, grapes. You can drink juice, milk, tee, coffee, cappucino. There is nothing wrong with this, but we like diversity and some food diversity would be great. Maybe some traditional food to be served...
A minus is that when we checked out, the owner asked us to pay his bank tax for the prepayment that we made (1.5 e). Is not such a big amount but wasn’t nice this gesture.
If we`ll come back to Greece and choose this region, we will stay at Zeus hotel for sure! Best regards!
We spent the weekend at Hotel Zeus because of a family event nearby. The owner and his family of staff were friendly and helpful. The room was spacious, quite newly built and clean. The bathroom was basic but very usable and warm water was always present for a shower. TV, fridge, aircon, phone and hair dryer. The balcony was a lovely addition.
Hardly seafront property but close enough to the amenities of Neoi Poroi and not far from Platamonas. Neoi Poroi isn't the classiest of resorts, rather concrete, sand and families. But Platamomas is much more of a Greek traditional resort and close enough.
The breakfast was a simple fresh selection (the croissants were a bit of a failure but not a problem). There is a pool and a bar, but we didn't take advantage of them.
We had an early start to get away and the owner got up especially to make sure everything was okay.
Nice hotel with good location
Good value for the money
Spacious rooms with basic equipment
A lot of parking spaces
Moderate prices at the hotel bar
Large beach nearby with a lot of greek tavernas
We spent a nice week there. We've got a good location (close to the beach), clean pool, good room and peaceful place to have a rest. Mr. Antonis and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Thank you Zeus!
Our stay in this hotel was a real pleasure. Extremely friendly staff, welcoming owners, the hotel is with great location. Very clean, towels and sheets was changed every day.
Highly recommended! The owner Mr Antonis was extremely kind and helpful. He did everything to make our stay perfect! We went as a guests, but we will return as a friends!!!
After more than 20 years of extensive international travel this hotel was really the most bad experience ever. Totally worn out. Photo's on the internet (Nice bathrooms with flowers) doesn't match the real looks at all, they're just fake. Breakfast was very bad. We were promised a room with balcony but got a room without and with insufficiënt airco. Elevator doesn't exist anymore (doors sealed). We arrived 2 hours after checking in time but room was not ready. We didn't got water at least even when the manager said " give me some time I will bring you some Drink". But the best is yet to come. We told immediately to leave the next day (we paid one night in advance) although we booked it for 3 nights. " it's okay the manager said". After 2 days we experienced our creditcard was charged for one other night ( and even more). We phoned the Hotel ( really thinking it was a mistake) but the manager hung up twice after telling this was the Hotel Policy ( which was 30%, which we had paid already! fair enough). We have informed MasterCard/Visacard about this ulltimate fraud. Our advice. DON'T STAY HERE
We stayed at the Hotel for 3 weeks in July 2014 and these are holidays we`ll never forget!!! .A perfect hotel for a family holiday , located between two resort towns Neo Pori and Platamonas. The place is fantastic! Large sandy beach with views of Mount Olympus. The sea is warm and clean. In the hotel There is everything you need: a swimming pool, Wi-Fi, comfortable rooms and very good service and a very friendly atmosphere!!! The Owner of the hotel - Mr. Antonis is so much careful for all his guests! Not far from the hotel you can enjoy deliciuos food in taverns where you can eat the best sea food or try national cuisine. If We have a chance, we`ll come back to Greece and choose The best hotel in Pieria - ZEUS!!!
