Grecotel Cape Sounio Review

One of the most luxurious hotels in Greece, this showpiece—looking a bit like a Greek temple left over from a spectacular Cecil B. DeMille movie set—perches amid the verdant pine forest of Sounion National Park: the stunning bay view includes a picture-perfect castle-fort and the Temple of Sounion itself. Accommodations here range from bungalows to villas and all are built as in amphitheater seating, to embrace the coast and maximize sea vistas. Floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors open onto walk-on terraces, many facing southeast toward the Temple of Poseidon; some have private pools. If you don't want to leave the comfort of your bungalow or villa, just order from the 24-hour room service menu, but few can resist the restaurant's front-row terrace over the bay. The octagonal glass-wall spa and fitness center overlook the sea, and on the two bays below the hotel is a private beach, with water-sports rentals available. On tap in the Cavo Colones restaurant is a fine menu with great Cretan and organic dishes (with three other dining options on site). Children are in luck with a full array of delightful morning and afternoon activities and mini-adventures.
