I went to Aegina for a romantic getaway to propose to my girlfriend. I had no plans as I did not know what to expect but it was a Greek Island, how could you go wrong .right? But without the help of the hotel staff going out of their way to accomodate, it would have gone wrong. Aegina is great because it is so close to Athens, what the point of flying ALL the way to Greece just to sit in a boat for another six hours just to go to an island. Aigia Marina is the best place on Aegina and Hotel Rachel is the best hotel in Aigia Marina so the decision was easy. The hotel is simple, cozy, and the best part is it is the BEST value for your money, you will get an authentic feel for Island living. We had a tv, frig, AC, and a nice balcony with a WONDERFUL view! Hotel Rachel is close to EVERYTHING! The beach is behind you, the shopping is in front of you, and all the cafes and restaurants are right next to you. No matter how great your hotel room is, PLEASE don't spend your time locked up in there, Aigia Marina has so much to offer! I only went to my room to sleep and shower, everyday, all day I was out and about. Hotel Rachel has a great breakfast and the perfect cafe to hang out in at any time during the rest of the day. Also, if you ever forget anything, their store has everything you need from sunscreen and shorts to souveniers and chair and umbrella rentals cheaper than anyone else on the beach. They arranged to drive me to ancient ruins, St Nektarios Monestary, and suggested GREAT night life hot spots. They know everyone and everything on the Island. Their kindness and hospitality was better then any hotel I've stayed at in the US. You don't go to a Greek Island to be treated as a business executive but rather a member of the family and that is exactly what Hotel Rachel does. I would definitely stay there again and have already planned on it. Special thanks to Maria and Gianni for making my stay so memorable and special.
