“Astir Palace Beach Resort”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

I was here in 2012 may, it was warm already! Great beach great service and they have Chef Nobu Matsuhisa Japanese restaurant right on hotel grounds, same as Nobu. The complex is almost 100 acres and the resort includes three hotels Arion, a Luxury Collection Resort & Spa, The Westin Athens and W Athens. I stayed in a bungalow right on the beach, there is a car rental there and easy to drive back to Athens. Each hotel has 3-5 restaurants from Japanese Italian to Greek, this hotel lies on a beautiful peninsula. Location rooms and service are perfect!

Room Tip: Stay in a bungalow

Nice hotel with a lovely view of the ocean! It was a pity I was visiting in October for a conference, as the weather was a bit chilly, and not ideal for enjoying a swim in the pool or the ocean. Staff were very helpful and accommodated my requirements for a room with WiFi. Rooms were both clean, modern and decorated very well.

My husband and I have stayed at the Westin Athens Hotel for a weekend (2012) and I wish it was for more! The hotel is located in a unique setting just in front of the sea and the private balcony of our room offered a captivating view. The room was very spacious, with stylish decoration, clean and well equipped. The near-by spa facilities of the Arion Resort & Spa hotel (in a 2- minute walking distance) gave us the opportunity to relax in an very elegant environment; We enjoyed a wonderful dinner at the beautiful Matsuhisa Athens restaurant (don't miss the Black Cod Yuzu Miso dish!. A dinner could turn quite expensive in this restaurant but there are offers you can take). The staff of the hotel was very kind and helpful. Overall, it was a great experience I can't wait to live all over again the next time I have the chance!

We were in Astir Palace in october 2012 for 2 nights. I have to say that Westin brings the quality like always....
Older building, but nice rooms, beautiful and modern bathroom..

Roomservice is fast and very nice.

In the morning when we ate the breakfast , what is really rich,we met with the same guy who came with the roomservice the day before. He recognised us and he was really friendly.

The pool area was amazing even in october:-)

We had beautiful 2 days!

My daughter and I were there for 3 nights after a cruise on the SEA CLOUD (fabulous). October is not "season," so it was very quiet, which was great. However the corporate feel of the hotel was like any large chain hotel--cold and stark. The room was lovely overlooking the bay, we were on the club level and travel with our own food, so I can't comment on restaurants, etc. We would not go back, in fact we took the free shuttle (great) back to the city so we could go to our favorite vegan/vegetarian restaurant AVOCADO and do some shopping. Something I would always remember to do when going to a "resort" hotel is ask what is on their social calendar--not for me necessarily but for other guests. On Sunday there were 30 screaming kids enjoying a birthday party on the lawn underneath our balcony. They were also in the pool--no adult segregated pool--so we didn't go to the pool till late in the day.
