First of all, I'd like to salute the very, very helpful, professional and friendly staff of this hotel. This year was the third time we stayed here, and the young lady who attended us spoke a very fluent English. Not only was the breakfast "well provided" again, but since there weren't any large groups staying (which is what this hotel mainly lives off), the waiter made us some fresh orange juice, and behaved like we were his personal guests. We couldn't judge any other meals since there weren't any (due to the time of year, and those meals then being cooked only for groups), but we had some very good ones in another hotel, a bit further. When schools are staying there, they can be noisy, but there you need some luck, and we weren't overly bothered either time. Again, we had rooms that looked out over the bay, with its magnificent sunrise. Being lodged "feet in the sea" (if it weren't for being on the first floor) is quite a nice experience too. The trip (by car) from the main street down to the parking of the hotel has always been an adventure, and will always be, but once you're accustomed to driving in Greece, this maneuver is a cinch. And there's always someone there to help you out. The village itself is a pitiful example of the effects of mass tourism on otherwise nice spots: hotels, hotels and hotels, and restaurants, and cafés... very little, if anything, is left of the original fishermen's village, save the fishermen themselves maintaining their boats. From Tolon you can visit very easily Ancient Corinth, Mykines, Tiryns, Epidavros, even Monemvasia and Gytheio, and, of course, Nafplio, modern Greece's first capital.
