Reviewed July 24, 2013

We had a very nice stay in Bacchus - the room was bright and spacious, the bathroom had a jacuzzi tub, the dinner service was good albeit a bit slow and the breakfast was decent. They also had a nicely lit pool and outdoor area and the staff were friendly.
A little bit outside the town of Olympia but not too difficult to get to if you are travelling by car, bus, etc.

Great location. Nice pool. Nice restaurant. Good food and reasonable prices. Helpful and friendly staff. We only stayed one night, but would definitely stay again. We were in the family room and found it a bit small for the four of us (adult kids). Next time we would book two double rooms.

Stayed here one night with family of four. Room has cabin feel, across the street from the hotel, your room door opens to the street, room with kitchen appliances and plates. But be careful, this hotel is 45min walk to city of Olympia. It is located in ancient pissa....and it is a very very small village. I like the hotel a lot but I would have preferred to stay in Olympia.

We stayed 2 days in that hotel. Great location, in the mountain away from the crowds. The pool was overlooking hills, the food was excellent, the room was spacious and clean, and the people were very nice. Highly recommend this place near Ancient Olympia.

If you are visiting Olympia in Greece, drive a few minutes down the rad and stay at this outstanding little inn. It sits on a ridge with a beautiful view and is inn a very cute and typical Greek village. Our room was beautifully done and the beds were soooo comfortable (not typical in Europe:) The pool has the great view and is right at the restaurant which was very fun. The breakfast was delicious- I think my kids talked about the croissants for days after!

Rarely in your travels will you have the confluence of all the things you seek -- a small, intimate family hotel/restaurant; a beautiful country setting near a world class site; great home cooked meals served steps from your room; very affordable rates; and family hosts who exude friendliness, hospitality and genuine care for your welfare.  But that's exactly what you will find at The Bacchus Pension and Taverna, just a few minutes from Ancient Olympia.  We stayed here for three nights and wished we had scheduled more -- not just because there is so much to do in the area, but because The Bacchus is what everyone seeks in their travels -- the perfect place to end a busy day with a wonderful family as your hosts.

Orthodox eastern sunday. Looking for a place for lunch. Went to Bacchus near Olympia.
The whole family of the proprietor, perhaps 25 persons, was having traditional Greek easter-lunch in the restaurant: sorry, we are closed.
When they saw our disappointment we were invited to share their lunch: large pieces of bbq-ed lamb, salad, tzatziki and a kind of pasta-cake. Red wine, water, and afterwards 3 pieces of the most delicious home-made patisserie.
All food great quality and absolutely fresh.
When we had finished this wonderful lunch we asked for the bill. The chef gave it some consideration and decided we were not allowed to pay anything....... hungry guests on easter!
Verdict: very nice place, simple but great food, wonderful people. ( and what we saw of the prices: low!)
