hi steve.a nice place to relax and not very far from athens is www.plaza-resort.com in anavisos village.also www.clubmed.com the international hotel chain holds two properties in attica not again very far from athens-the athenian club med in marathonas area and the mare nostrum club med in vravrona area.these hotels shouldn't cost you too much and they are resort type by the sea.if you want something closer to athens but more expensive,gas has suggest you very beautiful hotels of excellent standards.

You could stay in Varkiza - I'm sure there are a few hotels there. Good beach, plenty of tavernas, bars, cafes etc. and regular buses to the city centre. On an average day, it should take about half an hour to get to Glyfada (seaside posh suburb with good shopping & dining), 1.5 hours to get to the centre. Less in a taxi.
