Nothing can beat this hotel's location—much objected to by environmentalists and archaeologists—on the beach at the foot of the peninsula whose lofty prow holds the Temple of Poseidon, above the very harbor where ancient ships once navigated. All guest rooms have balconies, most have sea views, and a few gaze up at the temple. The restaurant, from where you can enjoy the sunset, serves Continental and Greek cuisine and fresh fish. It's a just a 15-minute uphill
walk to the ancient temple.
