Fodor's Expert Review Four Seasons Luxury Suites

Vlichos Beach, Vlichos, Hydra, 18040, Greece

No, this is not one of the famous chain's hotels but rather a tiny hotel inspired by the magical colors of the four seasons (the Sun Suite is the cream of the crop) sweetly set in an atmospheric, fully renovated 150-year-old stone mansion. The location is a 35-minute walk from the port, or 5 minutes via water taxi or boat, right next to the pebbled Vlichos Beach (also called Plakes Vlichou in Greek). Rooms are uncluttered, with functional, solid furniture and kitchenettes, satellite flat-screen TVs, Wi-Fi, and other amenities. A plus is the hotel's beachfront restaurant, renowned throughout the island for its refined seafood. Ask for the hotel's private boat to pick you up from the port upon arrival (and departure) at only €3 per trip.
