“Great time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

Stayed there during a field trip with a large group, and again during field work with 2 people. Both cases they were very friendly and the hotel was quite functional. Good continental breakfast! Good bar! Good dinner options if you don't feel like going far. The pool is beautiful, and it's within walking distance to a beach. The family running it is very friendly and outgoing. I would definitely recommend staying here.

Room Tip: There are two areas for rooms: in the main building and in an exterior building right there. The ind...

We selected Saron hotel to spend 1 night before taking off on a sailboat to tour the Cyclades (October 2012). We were familiar with the Saron hotel as we stayed here 1 night in 2009. Upon arrival at the hotel we noticed that 1 of our bags (containing a laptop computer!) had been left behind on the public transport (bus) from the Airport to the hotel. The friendly hotel staff went to great lengths to trace the local bus driver and retrieve our lost luggage. After tracking down the bus driver they convinced him to return our possessions which involved a 2 hour drive by car. Upon arrival at the Saron hotel, the bus driver refused a finder’s fee and we couldn’t even compensate the fuel costs as he felt it was his duty to return our bag.
Our basic rooms with TV, bathroom, and ocean view were clean. The beds were a little hard, but this didn’t keep us from a good night of sleep. The hotel pool was well maintained. The (wifi) internet access and free print service was ideal to get our marine weather updates. The hotel lobby has the atmosphere of a living room and drinks are available using an honor-based system. Breakfast was included and the costs for our stay were very, very reasonable. We highly recommend Hotel Saron.

My Mom and Dad sold this hotel in the early 80's to the current owners. I was only a pre-teen when I live there. Best place on earth.

Sounio was a paradise back then and the beach was to die for. I love this part of the world and greatly miss it. I plan on visiting this summer since this is my childhood place.

Poseidon's temple is also nice to see, but you can accomplish that in a couple of hours.

Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights in June, whilst waiting to transport a vehicle to Cyprus on the ferry at Lavrio. Overpriced for what it offered. Rooms basic and in dire need of decoration. The son of the family who run it was friendly enough, but the others were not very sociable.

You are better going to the campsite accross the road. Much frendlier and better facilities!

ould not reccommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Do NOT stay here

Wanted to see Temple of Poseidon at sunrise/sunset. Not a lot of choices of moderately priced hotels in the area. As such for one night it was OK. Did not have problems with bed bugs as reported by others. April so did not use pol but was a reasonable size. Breakfast was OK.

I stayed here for one night in Aug 2010, for a nearby wedding. Unfortunately, this was a huge mistake!

The rooms were filthy (including linen, showers and towels), and I think I bought back some bed bugs in my luggage. The shower was a drip hose behind the toilet, and the toilet flush was not immediately obvious.... which meant that I had to search around the toilet with my bare hands to find the flush. Yuck.

I think its a family run hotel, which has let its standards slip. If you so go to this area, I would advise you to spend some money and stay at the more expensive hotels. Its worth it in the long run. It has cost me 200 pounds to exterminate the bed bugs from my house. So far.

On the plus side, the location is stunning and beaches are beautiful. So if you must stay there, go straight to the beach!
