Fodor's Expert Review Grecotel Cape Sounio

Km 67, Athens–Sounion avenue , Sounion, Attica, 19500, Greece Fodor's Choice

One of the most elaborate hotels in Greece perches amid the verdant pine forest of Sounion National Park with stunning views of the Temple of Poseidon from bungalows and villas, all arranged in tiers along a hill. Floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors open onto nicely landscaped terraces, many facing southeast toward the temple; some have private pools. The octagonal glass-walled spa and fitness center overlooks 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 six other dining options on-site). Children are in luck with a full array of delightful morning and afternoon activities and mini-adventures at the Grecoland park.
