Actually, we looked for a hotel in Olympia and were not quite satisfied with what we found there. Then came the thought: Why not staying in a beautiful beach resort to relax after visiting the excavations? And we found this piece of Garden Eden - and loved it. Location and setting: The hotel is located in a small, scenic cove... More

The hotel is placed in a beautiful but remote part of Greece and a car is needed if you want to visit other locations. We really enjoyed our stay there and the staff was really helpful all the time. The rooms were very spacious and up to date. The restaurant served delicious food and the breakfast was of good standard.... More

The setting is amazing. The hotel landscaping is lovely. The rooms are clean and spacious. The beach front and pool are excellent. But ... the hotel clearly needs better management. Most importantly the evening dinner service is understaffed and chaotic which upset many guests when we where there. They also have a silly bandwidth limitation on internet access. I'd like... More

It is indeed a lovely hotel with very large rooms and balconies located at an amazing place with almost a private beach. It is ideal for families with kids but also for romantic escapes. The beach is sandy and the sea is lovely. 95% of the people on the beach are from the 26-rooms hotel only so it feels like... More

Beautiful location, very clean, and great private beach. Very safe for children as shallow, sandy beach extensive. Food is fine at breakfast. Lots of choice inc egg and bacon pie to die for. Very peaceful. Only 24 rooms and never felt crowded. Good signs for hotel but don't try and find it in the dark as lots of turns down... More

Rooms are great, especially those with the stunning sea view. They are spacious, modern and clean, nice amenities and bathroom. Pool was very nice, and so was the beach. Service was attentive and kind. Breakfast and food were very decent. Overall a very pleasant vacation experience.

Stunning sea views and the hotel architecture suits them nicely. The beach is nice and secluded. Breakfast and dinner are decent. Staff are really trying but seem unprofessional. Facilities only just functional: weak wifi signal, weak shower water pressure, the water temperature of the pool increasing during the day under the sun to a disagreeable almost hot degree. The manager/owner... More

I cannot praise this beautiful hotel enough. On our long tour around the Peloponnese, we knew that we would need accommodation near Ancient Olympia and I searched the Internet. The Mare Dei Suites came up and I thought that the photos looked wonderful. It did however look quite big from one photograph which we didn't want, but the other photos... More

We stayed here recently with family. It turned out to be a great family hotel with lovely beach and pool. The staff was all friendly and welcoming. It is, as other reviewers have noted, in the middle of nowhere. Watch for the signs and call them if you get lost. The property is nicely laid out and lovely. The desk... More
