“Fantastic Location, Great Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

Our group of 40 travelers stayed here for two nights and it was no doubt a highlight of our Europe tour. It was so nice to relax after touring Athens. This hotel is right on Askeli Beach and is only about a 10 minute walk from town. We rented ATV's one day and explored the enire island, found hidden beaches, and went into town.
The staff was alright. Some were less than welcoming (kind of expected with our large group) but others were very nice.
Be sure to eat at Panorama Restaurant just a few doors down from this hotel.

Room Tip: Make sure to be on oceanfront side

We absolutely loved the New Aegli. First of all, it’s recently renovated, so it looks pretty much brand new. It is situated right on what is considered the best beach on Poros, so you walk out the front door, and right across the street, you are on the beach. The staff is friendly, the rooms extremely nice, and the restaurant is decent (rather limited menu). We did have a better meal at the port one evening, but the tzatziki at the New Aegli was the best of anywhere we had in our week in Greece (and we ate a LOT of tzatziki). My wife’s moussaka was also the best she had on our trip. A half liter of wine in the restaurant is only three Euro and the beer is rather cheap as well. It is about a 25 minute walk from where the ferries dock, but I’d recommend a taxi (four Euro). The bus runs hourly and is about one Euro and 50 cents, I believe. The price for the New Aegli is great, so it’s a fantastic value. From what we saw, this is probably the best hotel on the island. We were VERY sad to leave.

Very nice hotel ran by a very nice family!

Upon our arrival we were notified that our room was unavailable due to, a child of the previous occupant getting sick, and having to stay another night. The staff informed us that there were no other rooms available and that they would be giving us a room at their other hotel. They transported us to the other hotel and back again the next morning. And they did not charge us for that first night stay.

The hotel looks over a very nice beach and the sea. Access to the beach is just down 2 sets of stairs. It is far enough from the noise and traffic of the city center, but it's close enough that a cab ride is only €3.50.

Our room was very clean and had an incredible view from the balcony.

My only complaint would be the very slow internet in the room.

I will definitely return to New Aegli Hotel.

Booked a 3 nights stay with the kids. The hotel is very clean, the beds are very comfortable, the location is great, at 1.3 km from the port, and with a 1 km sand beach just across the road. The breakfast was basic continental breakfast, and the pool and beach sandwiches are ok.
Patience is important as the staff are limited in number, and must handle lots of matters at the same time. Will definitely come back. We also got at checkout a nice bottle of wine and a bottle of olive oil complimentary of the GM.

Room Tip: Do not book a room over the pool, a bit noisy during the day

My husband and I spent 11 days in June at this hotel - cant fault a thing! The location is fab with all rooms sea facing. We were on the 3rd floor overlooking Askelli Beach. If you are a guest at this hotel you are entitled to a discount on the daily hire of sunbeds on the beach too. When you check in you will be issed with a card to show on the beach to get this discount. While we were there the hotel bought really comfortable pads for the beach sunbeds. Only thing I would say is that they need to invest in more and these were always the first to go (even in the early morning).

We are both beach lovers and really liked the fact that you have space around you on the beach. However, I am not sure if this would be the case in the high season. Back to the hotel though, if you are considering Askelli as your resort, then my opion would be this hotel is the best choice.

The beds all have cocomat matresses which are the most comfortable bed that we have slept on. We were B&B and did not eat in the hotel in the evenings although I believe the foods was nice but we prefer to try different restaurants each night. The breakfast was nice but I think a bit more choice would have been good however, what was provided was always freash and adequate.

Overall, we would thoroughly recomment this hotel and visiting Poros. We plan to return again and will definately be booking The New Aegli.

Room Tip: High floors for breathtaking views over the bay.

Our second stay at the New Aegli. A lot of refurbishment done over the off-season. The Reception/Bar/Restaurant area much more user friendly now!
And the food in the restaurant very acceptable now.One day we had Octopus cooked in
sweet red wine with rice - it was lovely!
New work going on the sea front , so soon there will be a nice waterfront brasserie to use..........
