Highs + Lows

  • Staying in a hotel over that is 100 years old is totally amazing. The building, which was recently renovated, was pristine.

  • The service was unreal – I have never encountered a more friendly and helpful staff (especially because I don’t think I saw more than 10 people working at the hotel!).

  • The untouched island of Spetses is the perfect place for a hotel like the Poseidonion Grand Hotel, I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect setting.

  • The food served at the hotel is exactly what you would want – classic, simple, and delicious.

  • The facilities were so unexpected for such a small and historic hotel – the boutique had the best stuff in town, the spa was beautiful and relaxed and the staff was great, the two pools were serene, and the various lounging areas were so well designed!
