Our second stay at this hotel lived up to its promise. This time the room was a little smaller and even though we were told all rooms with an Acropolis view were booked out, you could still see part of it through our window.
This time we tried the indoor spa and it was fantastic. The pool is a decent size, there are four steam/therapy/sauna rooms, foot spas and the ambience is beautiful.
I had a facial by the fabulous Maria who was one of the most pleasant people I have ever met.
We had one small problem with security mistreating my husband and spoke to the manager about it who was very prompt and helpful.
No tea or coffee in our room but housekeeping were very quick to bring an iron and adapter which we forgot to take.
The blinds are fantastic - the room was pitch black at 9am.
Will stay again!
