My wife and I returned for our third stay. This was the best so far, despite the difficult and uncertain times facing the local people. The staff were amazing from the moment we arrived. Our recently refurbished room on the 4 floor was beautifully appointed with a wonderful sea view from the balcony. Our every need was catered for, promptly and with a smile.
We love the atmosphere of the hotel, in particular the candles throughout the hotel at night.
The recently added gastronomic dinner option was an experience not to be missed; not cheap, but good value.
We wish we had stayed longer. We will be returning as soon as possible to one of my favourite hotels in the world.
The hotel is located in a bay area. Amazing view of sea and mountain. Staff is very helpful and efficient. Hotel has many facilities for everyone to enjoy: from Tennis to swimming to children's activities etc. The area around the hotel is very nice, clean and high-end suburb of Athens. 10 minutes from the shopping area in Glyfada by cab(10 euro) and 25 minutes from downtown Athens by cab (30 euro). Lots of restaurants and café shops around the area.
Overall this is a great hotel in a fantastic location, 5 mins walk from lake and restaurants and 10 mins walk from the beach. My wife and I had a very pleasant stay.
However, the dinner offering was quite poor, there are much better options within a 5 minute walk so my advice is don't book half board. Also if you’re a vegetarian, they need at least 24 hours’ notice to prepare something for you other than Spaghetti.
Beautiful hotel and setting, and service from Xenia in So Oriental was fantastic. I would not stay longer than a couple of nights if u was to return as the menus are limited (pretty much the same in each place), the service could be vastly improved and not a lot of entertainment at night. Pool was great but other areas needed done up but as pre summer season this may be forthcoming. View and beach also good. Temple of Poseidon is within walking distance and a short taxi ride away is Lavrion which has a few shops, bars and restaurants. Room was lovely and comfortable, products provided in the room were fantastic!
Grecotel Cape Sounio is more than a resort-it is an experience. Like the Temple of Poseidon, in plain view from all the …More
It was so good we stayed an extra night !
Only a 5 minute walk to the beach and local restaurants. The rooms were small, but had everything required, a fridge, air conditioning, TV, balcony and were cleaned everyday.
There is a lovely little pool area with very comfortable beds and bean bags.
Breakfast was quite basic, a cold buffet with a couple of hot elements, bacon and fried eggs, but it was tasty and enough to set you up until lunch.
The staff were really accommodating and friendly. I e-mailed prior to our stay to inquire about the best way to get to the hotel from the airport. A bus runs 24 hours and was only 5 euros, it couldn't have been easier !
I will definitely be returning !
Although best known for its historical and archaeological sites, Athens is also blessed with lovely beaches on the Aegean Sea. Travelers can experience majestic views of the water and still remain within convenient reach of the famous historical sites of Athens, such as the Acropolis and the Parthenon. The historic port city of Piraeus is also nearby.
