“A beach hotel without a beach.”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

We visited Poseidon Palace hotel last July, for a relaxing weekend.
The rooms were pretty nice, large and clean.
The surrounding areas were well maintained, having a nice pool and its pool bar, where you could relax and enjoy your day.
The breakfast was rather poor and the beach actually didn't exist, there is just one platform where you can dive from.
All these compared to an average price of 60 euros for a double room, make the specific hotel worth its money,

I have chosen that hotel because of the nice pics on the website, but I should have read more carefully the negative recommentations.. Definitly I was very disappointed. Its no 5star and would get maybe a 3star rating. There is no beach, but you could go swimming in the sea if you walk over stones and ugly smelling seaweed. The room with balcony and the pool were nice, but the Wlan, which was really important for me, was not working in my room and pool area. In the restaurant area the Wlan was ok.  Also much more terrible was, that the aircon was defect. After my complains to the manager's doughter she came with a technician who pushed a few times against the switchboard - but...  no success. After a while they have fixed it somehow. The next morning the Wlan was working, but due to the really bad connection it was useless.. I used it again in the breakfastroom.
 There was also a very strong smell from the gully, but when I complained again, nothing happened. Due to the situation that the doughter was unfriendly and rude to me, I tried to find a solution and I fixed it by myself, because the smell was really too bad and I did not want to have more discussions. I want to spend a nice holiday and not to justify always about problems with the room.
The restaurant was quite ok and the staff there was very friendly. Also the pool bar staff was helpful and very friendly.
 I will definitly not come back again and would not recommend it to my friends... A better management, better facility maintenance and customer friendlier attitude of some people here to the customers, who bring their money could make the hotel really a nice jewel.
It's a pity!

Went in June of this year with my partner. Hotel is nice but I wouldnt rate it higher than a 3*. Rooms were apartment-like. The holder for the shower head was broken and was short which made it hard to stand in the bath and have a shower. Breakfast was a buffet which meant any hot food wasn't very hot and and cold food mostly consisted of breads. On the plus side, the pool and pool area were fabulous. Food and drink were completely overpriced. The sea looked lovely but it is unfortunate that there was no bit of a strand. Staff were accommodating but their english was limited except for the reception staff who we had to refer to if we needed anything for our room or to eat/drink. The hotel is far from every amenity except for the bus stop into Patras which itself was a 3 hour bus journey from Athens. Overall, it was an ok stay.
