We stayed at the Melia at the end of our honeymoon for 2 nights before heading back home. It was quite a ride from the airport, but easy and not too bad in a taxi. The hotel set it up for us, so that took away a huge headache of navigating transportation. They even had a taxi waiting for us at 3am when we needed to head back to the airport. The hotel was in a good location, easy walk to the main attractions. We were there in October, and it was pretty sketchy at night because there were what looked like swat teams on the corners of every street, so I would recommend to use the rooftop restaurant after dark instead of wandering. The rooftop view of the acropolis was awesome. We didnt have a chance to use the pool or the spa, but both looked amazing. The restaurant was very overcrowded (i'm sure the other guests had the same concerns we did), and there were only two servers working. Just be sure to grab a drink at the bar before you sit down and you'll be fine waiting, just take in the view! Overall we had a comfortable stay. We would definitely stay here again.
