We stayed in the Grecotel Cape Sounio in May, just a few days after it had opened for the season.
The hotel is beautifully located across the temple of Poseidon. To eat breakfast in the morning with a view of the temple and the sea is just breathtaking. The people who designed this hotel, really know their stuff: an abundance of plants and flowers, all rooms are bungalows/villas placed against the hill side so you get a lot of privacy, the architecture is stunning, designed to make the hotel fit in with the environment, as if it has been there for as long as the Sounio temple itself.
We were travelling with our 2 children, active boys aged 3 and 4, and were a bit worried that they wouldn't fit in in such a luxury hotel. Needless to say we were very wrong. Everyone in the hotel staff did their utmost best to make our stay as comfortable as possible. From guest relations manager to maitre d'hotel to pool boy, they do everything they can to make you feel welcome and at home.
To sum it up: if you are looking for a luxury vacation with a relaxed atmosphere, Grecotel Cape Sounio is your hotel!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- One of the most famous archaeological sites of Greece is the Temple of Poseidon in Sounio, south-east of Athens. The Grecotel Cape Sounio literally clings to the side of a pine-clad hillside with panoramic views over this ancient monument. Behind the hotel is the Sounio National Park and below the hotel are two bays (one sandy and the other is shingle) which are approached via tunnels under the road (ancient river path). The buildings are set in an amphitheatre shape allowing exhilarating views of the Temple of Poseidon and the sea from most guestrooms and public areas. ... more less
