A little gem

Review of Hotel Possidon
4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 1 Jul 2012
Along with a number of friends we have been visiting Aegina for a number of years. It is a great place to unwind, if you are looking for an action packed holiday then Aegina is not for you, if you want to unwind and enjoy a laid back pace at a very reasonable prices then give Aegina some consideration.
Agia Marina is pretty seaside resort with a safe sandy bay. It is surrounded by a number of bars, restarants and shops.
We have always stayed at the Possidon hotel, it is run by Thomas with the help of his "mumma" . The rooms are basic but with a room fridge. good showers, hair drier and air con. Excellent value. Mumma cooks a good breakfast which is included in room rate, on offer are eggs, bacon and tomatoes or a couple of boiled eggs with lovely fresh bread and slices of her home made cake.
We have some favorite haunts, mainly the beach bar run by Pavlos and his lovely wife Julia. Enjoy the view of the bay with a prawn saganaki or an excellant greek salad washed down with a nice carafe of wine or a mykonas beer, all at reasonable prices.
After the beach, stop off for an ice cream or coffee with a complimentry concoction of chocolate infused metaxa - wonderful.
My preference for evening meal was always Marina's Banana Bar where her "special" was always delicious and only 8 euros. Anything from roast lamb, kleftico or moussaka on offer, always homemade and always delicious.
More or less next door is Obsessions bar where Dimitri will serve you a generous cocktail.
The main town is worth a visit for a good fish dinner in lovely surroundings.

My Family and numerous friend have been visiting Agia Marina since 1995. It is a hidden gem with lovely friendly people in abundance. Thomas and his lovely family have always made us very welcome and it is always a pleasure staying with them and we now look on them as friends and look forward to our anual trip. We have had lots of fun there celebrating birthdays etc and keep in touch through Facebook throughout the year.

It is only a small resort and most tourists that you meet are repeat guests as they too have found it a very friendly island. Although we always intend to go island hopping whilst there we usually land up doing nothing other than going to the beach each day, the sea is very shallow so it's ideal for children to play in. It is just steps from the cafe/bar where Pablos and his family serve the most wonderful lunches and make us so welcome. There are so many restaurants to choose from in the evenings but our crowd love to eat at Marina's Banana Restaurant followed by more than a few drinks with Dimitri at Obsessions

Room tip: Corner rooms have a double balcony : Front rooms face the road so can be a bit noisier if motorbikes go by : Back rooms are quieter : Ask for a room with a refrigerator although I think most have them now

last year i visit the hotel.the room has been recently renovated.the bedroom and the bathroom was in good condition has recenlty change.
the problem was that the the second day the towels and the sheets were dirty but they just change (return)way and put the same...i think that they have to be more carefull with the cleaning of the room...
aalso,when i call, they told me that the room has everything but when i go there i see that there was not refrigarator which i think is the most important thing in the summer time...downstair they have a small bar and i buy everyday i bottle of watter.
the owners were very friendly and they made anything in order to be more comfortable.
however, the price 55euro (if i remember right)that i has pay are not same with the original paper of the room that was say 45euro....(sth like that).
also,there was very very close a road with many shops and the sea was close and the room was very quite.
the breakfast was very poor and doesn;t havve many choices.also, i think is important to have a reception and not to be in the bar area.
i think if they made some changes they have the bases to be a comfortable run family hotel!
