This is the third writing retreat I've held at Kavos Bay hotel. I've held writing retreats other places, but the atmosphere at Kavos Bay is unparalleled. Every room has a stunning view of the ocean, and the outdoor pavilion makes a great place to hold group discussions and writing activities. Most of the participants also took advantage of the opportunities to swim, jog, or do yoga during breaks. The combination of having an opportunity to work in such a focused way -- with no distraction from wandering tourists -- and to be able to fully relax and feel taken care of by Irene and her family meant that most of us were able to produce far more than we hoped for. And setting aside a few hours to walk to the temple and take in the sights left most participants feeling like they had been on vacation, even though we got so much work done. I will definitely come back!

Just back from third stay at Kavos Bay Seafront Hotel. Again we had a wonderful relaxing time at this peaceful location. It really is the peace and quiet that marks this place out as special for us. Looked after really well by all of the Krassas family, so we were able to make the most of Kavos Bay's great location overlooking the sea. A really good base for exploring this side of the Island - whether by car or on foot (some lovely walks right by the accommodation). Once again enjoyed the great food freshly prepared every evening. We had a really nice room that had seaviews (they all do!!) and the room was kept clean and fresh. We only wish we had been able to stay longer - we really didn't want to leave! Will definately try to have a longer stay next year.

Kavos Bay hotel is a very special place. You get a beatiful panorama view, greek culture, good food and the best atmosphere.
It is a place where you can be sure to relax and feel relaxed in the room, on the balcony or in the hotelareas.
You get a feeling of being part of a big happy greek family.
We're coming back for sure.

Deep in the greenest (I think) area of the island you can find the peaceful and cozy hotel Kavos Bay. The construction respects nature, and while in the terrace you feel like you are on the deck of the sea. From your room you hear the waves breaking on the sea-shore... Definitely not a hotel for people that like luxury, but for people that appreciate the best things in life, which are true, natural, not appreciated by the majority of people that others tell them how they should lead their lives... The breakfast is very generous, compared to the money you pay per night. The room we had was very nice. Big window, fridge, air-conditioning, clean sheets... The owners are friendly people who do what they can to help you. One of the owners gives you lifts if you have no other means of transportation... This is very generous indeed... The area around it is breathtaking... Just go and have a look for yourself... If you are one of the people out there that makes a difference in life, and likes nature and wants to discover things, this is the place for you...

Recently back from my second stay at Kavos Bay Seafront Hotel. This time Andrew came with me and he loved the place just as much as I do. We had a wonderful two weeks swimming, walking and just relaxing looking out across the bay, the views are just lovely - and yes enjoying the great food prepared by Anthoula. The best moussaka and stifado ever! Once again made to feel very welcome by everyone, plus the newcomer puppy "Sugar". We are both so glad to have found this quiet accomodation nestling among the pine trees in a lovely location.

Are we going back? Have already sent our dates for next year!

Did you know that Aegina was Greece's 1st capital? Did you know that the famous writer Nikos Kazatzakis lived in Aegina for 20 years, that except ancient ruins of Afaia, there are also ruins of Kolona and Ellanios Zeus? There are plenty of things to see around the island which is very green and has beaches for any desire. But all of these discoveries for that beautiful island, was made based from KAVOS BAY HOTEL, which is convenient for all directions to the island. Is a very quite hotel in a pine tree forest, with the a great view of Agia Marina village & port. They have a very an excellent value for money service, with breakfast, amazing coast for swimming and/or for fishing. I have been again to Aegina, but I haven't realize that is a beautiful island. This hotel is hosting in one of the best places of the island to see around the place. Apart from the hotel, they have a very a breakfast room with a great view to the sea, and a balcony that is facing to the sea & Agia marina village. As I am involved with astronomy as an amateur, this place is great for astrophtography. I took photos of milky way with Agia Marina's port and Ursa Major. I really will go back to Aegina soon, and certainly to see stay in Kavos Bay hotel.

We had booked for two rooms, for two days, and when we got there, took a long time with the taxi, and it was really out of the way. The hotel does not look like the pictures at all. The place is old and looks like it needs a lot of renovations. The bathrooms are so tiny, and in one of the rooms, it was disgusting. I won't mention what was in there, but it turned us off completely. The view from the patio probably was the only thing good about the place. We decided we couldn't stay there, so we quickly booked another hotel closer to town.

these people have a perfect location, so hopefully, for the price they charge anyone they should have it remodeled and cleaned up. Hopefully we can get our money back as we did not stay there.

We are sorry that you were dissapointed during your visit to Kavos Bay.
Although we do our very best to maintain our property and to offer quality service to our guests, sometimes, unexpected things happen, something can go wrong and as a result creates the bad experience.

We love our property and its beautiful nature surroundings and we too hope that soon we will be able to start small improvements and renovations. The fact that it has not been renovated till now, I can assure you has nothing to do with "lack of love". it's strictly due to the horrific
"economy crisis" that we and my country are going through during these last last five years now.

When Kavos Bay is renovated, we will send you an invitation to come visit us again "complimentary" this time, just to make up for your disappointment and to offer you the chance to see Kavos Bay as it really is.
