“Great base for travel around mainland--but rent your own car!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2011

We were miserable our first day here, because it was a Sunday and we were stranded. The resort is kinda in the middle of nowhere...we were really bored until the next morning when we arranged for a car to be delivered for us from Napflion. Once we had the car, it was FANTASTIC! We drove all over-Napflion, Tolo, Mycenae, Corinth, Iberia, and more. The hotel was deserted other than one single American traveller and a French tour group. Very quiet, but we were there in the off season....so we knew it would be like that. and we loved it!

There are day trips that leave from Tolo and Nafplio (Tolo is closer) to visit other islands.
Tolo and Nafplio are both really neat towns, Nafplio being the bigger of the two. It is easy to spend a day in Nafplio...there is plenty to do for a day or two.


**BEST FOOD IN GREECE**
Tolo has the best restaurant in greece though...It was across from the beach and looked like a wine patio outside. It was AWESOME. we went there several times but I cannot for the life of me remember the name...

Dont eat at the resort, the food is overpriced and awful.

We had a blast traveling around the country from Iria. We then went to Athens and to Santorini, but we loved beginning our honeymoon in Iria. But, take my advice--GET YOUR OWN CAR!!

We were on an RCI Timeshare exchange.

It was a three day Easter escape trip (Half Board Basis).
The hotel is a typical summer resort hotel, about 25km away from Nafplion, with no opportunities to occupy the children within the hotel.
Room attendants appeared and serviced the room only a day prior our departure.
The receptionist upon check in, proved to be unaware of the restaurant opeing hours.
Cleaningless of the room: by lifting the bed matress (a box type bed) one could easily see a lot of dust hidden underneath..
Breakfast: only the very basic elements, butter, honey, jam, two kinds of cereal, bread and cake in slice, slices of processed cheese and wannabe ham. No orange juice, just fruit cocktail in carafes.
The was a coffee station with filtered coffee, hot water warm/cold milk.
There was also the alternative of instant coffee, hot cjhocolate and one selection of tea bags.
The meals (dinner with the exception of Easter which was lunch) were okayish, although they supposed to be celebrative, due to Easter, at least this is was it was advertized through the TA.

To conclude: the service was not up to the four star standards.

The best hotel I stayed at during my EF tour of Greece and italy. Though we were only there for a night, what I saw was great. It had a great restaurant and was very private.

We checked in the evening. The view of the sunset on the was spectacular. There is nothing close by but we were only there for one night. Although the rooms are large with a living area and separate bedroom, the beds were very hard and uncomfortable. Our meals in the restaurant were not good and the breakfast was sparse. The hotel could use a little updating, but other than that was okay. It seemed to be clean.

Stayed in the 800 block of rooms... far from beach... food and room better than others. But be careful with your valuables.

My passport, ID, and ca$h must have fallen between the beds, and although it is my responsibility and the hotel did say they conducted a search... alas a dishonest employee did not turn it in so I had to make a hasty trip to the embassy in Athens at much expense to get a new passsport. They are gone forever and the Euros too.
