“What A Celebration!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

In August we returnea for our 13th visit to the New Aegli Hotel.This time we celebrated our Golden Wedding there and what a celebration we had.Kyriakos,the manager,organised a wonderful meal for us on the terrace overlooking the beautiful bay on a night of Greek dancing.Christine,one of the receptionists,danced especially for us and the pianist,Tzitzis Lefteris,played our favourite.music.
Kyriakos and his father Spyros arranged for the cook to make us a beautiful cake and presented us with champagne.Thank you for a wonderful,magical evening,

The New Aegli is a luxurious,modern hotel with panoramic views over the bay.The sandy beach is only a few metres away and the sea is lovely and clear.

The rooms have been updated and are spacious with huge balconies.All rooms have air conditioning,satellite tv,safe,telephone and free wifi.

The restaurant on the terrace is excellent and the traditonal Greek food is delicious.

All the staff are so friendly and helpful-they made our holiday special.

This hotel is okay for budget travelling. It´s outdated furniture but functional.

It has large patio to sit outside, small pool area at the side of the hotel, tiny parking area for the car and rooms with a breathtaking seaview. You cross the road from the hotel and you´re right at the beach. People working at the hotel are nice and polite.

The hotel room is very basic. You have your small TV, air-conditioning unit, empty fridge and a phone. The bigger room we´d has king size bed with Coco mat top mattress over a cheaper mattress making the bed comfortable. The bathroom has basic things inside with a bathtub. On the balcony you can find white plastic chairs and light a table. The room was spotlessly clean but not so much on the cover of the bed as seen on the picture.

The breakfast is absolutely one of the worst I´ve ever had with green egg omelets and weird tasteless food options. Not to even mentioning that trays on the breakfast table were empty and we´re eating there one hour after breakfast was opened in the morning.

So, all in all, don´t eat here but spend your whole day on the beach and sleep well after checking bed linen and towels. It´s a place for a cheap over night place to stay but not for a whole week holiday.

We would like to thank you for your time to posting this review and for your overall good words. However, the dates of arrival and the types of room someone chooses, standard or another type, affect the impression. Breakfast at this time of the year, with only 3-4 rooms booked is difficult to meet the usual standards and the great variety it usually has.
There are several room types and all of them have airconditioning, fridge with refrigerator, safety box, satellite TV, hairdresser etc. Only in several balconies there are plastic chairs, which will be all replaced next year.
For 2014 we have scheduled an extensive renovation of the reception area and the older furniture, changing reception’s place, in order to offer even better sea views from everywhere.
We would like to thank you for your time and we hope to welcome you again some another time in the future!

This hotel offers the budget traveller what he wants. A picturesque scenery right across on beautiful organised beach with descent rooms. Inside the rooms nice beds with coco-mat top matress guarantee a good nice sleep.
The bathroom was obviously rennovated but the towels were very thin and the shower head was leaking. A small LCD TV on top of an old empty fridge that was making some noise during the night and had to be turned off..The room was relatively clean but tue duvet was dirty.
The lobby area had a fantastic view but the furniture were outdated and old. The parking lot convenient but small for the hotel size. Beautiful garden in front of the hotel and a pool with great view but relatively small.
The breakfast was a big dissappointement... Green omelate (!), in general food that wasn't that tasty and coming with small selection. Also the it was replenished in a very slow pace. In general if the prices are kept low is a good choice. Notice also that is not inside the town of Poros. The good thing in that is that the area around it is not so crowded and you have the beach at your feet. Poros center is 20min walking from the hotel.

Room Tip: Choose rooms with sea view and prefer the higher floors-less noise and more privacy.

Thank you for your valuable feed back and your comments regarding our hotel.
As we mentioned on the same review above, breakfast is difficult to be so enriched when only 3-4 rooms are occupied at this time of the year. Concerning the furniture in the main lobby, this will be radically changed this autumn. We will even change the place of the reception in order to provide magnificent unhindered views to the beach from everywhere in the hotel.
We would like to thank you and we hope to welcome you some another time in the future!

The hotel is very clean and comfortable. The room was big and had a lovely view over the Askeli beach and the pine tree forest. The hotel inside is very modern and up to the standards. Its restaurant/cafeteria overlooks an extraordinary panoramic view which starts from the edge of Poros town, the beautiful gulf and the opposite coast all the way to the Askeli town. The Askeli beach which is just opposite the hotel is a lovely sandy organised beach with toilets and a small canteen. The hotel provides car parking space; driving to the Poros town is only 2 mins. Breakfast buffet was good too. If you prefer comfort than being in the middle of the town then this hotel is strongly recommended.

We were in the middle of quite a lot of work on our boat, and we needed a good shore base, so that we could enjoy a good holiday as well as get the boat in order. The New Aegli Hotel at Askeli on Poros Island, offered both a good hotel and a lovely beach resort. All this turned out to be more than true, and we really enjoyed our stay there. Some of the best 'good points' were that the hotel was well-kept, very clean and surprisingly good value. Askeli itself has a lovely sandy beach and a pleasant outlook. Askeli does need a shop though - there is only a small kiosk, which was in 'end of season' mode, like many of the tavernas. All in all, though, a jolly good break.
