Located over a private and beautiful beach , a little gem that at first I did not want to share with other people , so that it stays isolated and quiet , unlike other gigantic and noisy resorts ! But it would be unfair for the owners and the friendly and helpfull people who work there . Great suites with amazing view of the sea , a very good restaurant , perfect pools for parents and children and reasonable prices ! A perfect place to really relax !

This is my favorite hotel in Greece! I initially visited this hotel last summer, and returned, like many other visitors do (I found a couple that we hanged out last summer there!), this summer. It is quiet yet social and friendly, luxurious yet casual, has a great quality in services and a truly breathtaking landscape! It is deal for people like me looking for an escape away from crazy city rhythms; a real mediterranean hospitality experience. Looking forward to returning back there soon!

We stayed in Mare Dei hotel in September 2013 for 6 nights.
The phantasic view over the Ionian sea with privat sandy beach and the pool is perfect. You see the sea from the bed, while taking a shower, during the breakfast or having your evening beer on the huge balcony.
If you need a real real relaxation, it is a perfect place to stay. Being there "in low season" was really beautiful: warm water, and a feeling to have the whole location for your own.
The rooms are very big (the bed as well), the balcony is huge, and the whole location is sweet, like a small village.
The breakfast is nice, the food in the restaurant is tasty, but with a rather little choice and quite costy.
The hotel is located quite away from the touristic routes, hence the car is nesessary, as well as navigation system to find the hotel, the road to the hotel is quite bumpy, coming from Skafidia following the hotel signs is not advisable unless you drive land rover, try to find the road from Leventochouri.
We would defenitely recommend the hotel and hope to come back soon.

Room Tip: Book a room with sea view.

Beautiful isolated location on it's own private sandy beach......right stop there, that is the only positive I can state. We stayed for one night only as a stop over for the Killini ferry after touring around the Penelopesse. The hotel is extremely isolated, and there is nothing around, eg, no alternatives to eat, not even a local taverna for miles. It has a pool bar that shuts at 8:00pm and there is no bar in the evening. There is a poor dimly lit restaurant that offers limited Italian style menu. The service on the whole is non existent. At the pool bar, I placed my order for a drink, and I was presented with the check to sign......my husband stood next to me didn't even get asked what he wanted (the bar was empty at the time)! As the bar closed at 8:00 we went up to the restaurant and sat on the one and only sofa and asked if they had a cocktail menu. The cocktails were poor and took a long time to make (they clearly have no experience in this area). We then moved to the last well lit table in the restaurant area (other later diners were having to leave their seats and take their menus to the lights to read them!). I ordered an Ouzo and my husband ordered a bottle of wine. The waiter told me that I shouldn't drink the wine as I had already had a cocktail and was about to have an Ouzo and it was too much for me. He then told us that we had ordered too much food and to cancel something. My back was already up at this point being told what I could and couldn't eat or drink. Our starters arrived and were placed in front of us, and then our pasta mains arrived whilst we will still eating, and they were left on the end of the table and left to go cold. When we finished our starters our plates were removed and the mains were picked up from the end of the table and plonked in front of us. We sent the food back as it was now cold (and pretty bland too). After that, they completely ignored us. We told them that we were not going to pay for the mains and they called the manager. She wasn't apologetic at all.
In the morning, when we checked out the bill included the main courses which I stated I wasn't paying for, so the receptionist called the manager. She again, defended everything and said they had done nothing wrong. We also told her about the lack of service with examples, rude staff, the poor room facilities, the broken shower in the room etc. Again, she defended that nothing was wrong, the service was fine, the food was good, this is a four star hotel, our customers are very happy etc. When I repeated that I wasn't going to pay for the main courses she started shouting and threatened to call the Tourist Police! She only finally backed down when I asked her to explain why the two drinks orders at the pool bar were on different checks after she claimed that the pool bar person would not have only served one person? If she was right the drinks would have been served together and on the same check. She couldn't get out of that one.
I have to finish by saying this is not a cheap hotel. I have never stayed in a 4* hotel where the service has been so poor and I have made a complaint and been told I was wrong and treated in such an odious way.

This is a marvelous place to be, you actually feel part of the sea while looking at of the window of your comfortable room. You think that it was okey driving on the dirty road for some km, since the place will pay out. But the details are missing, cleaness is not so great and the unique setting for the home based breakfast is interrupted by just few many bugs. Perhaps if the price was not so high, one would settle with it.

We stayed in a suite for 5 days in august. The room was spacious, very clean and with a huge bathroom.
The view over the pool and beach was stunning. The hotel is built like a small village and even has a sandy beach if you dont prefer pools. The location is remote but very very beautiful and ideal to relax. However the road to the hotel is quite bumpy. The restaurant is a bit pricey but the food is lovely. On the downside, the staff was a bit all over the place sometimes but always kind so I'll let them off! We will be coming back!

Nice room with excellent view ,good staff and very nice beach ..The hotel services is not available, poor breakfast and the poolbar and the restaurant they not provide any service. many insect if you open the window from the bathroom. The area its very quite ithere its nothing else around and its so difficult to find the hotel in the night. My opinion is they must do try to make this hotel perfect because its very modern and nice ,perfect beach but all the other provision of servises its very poor

Dear Valued Guest,

First of all thank you very much for sharing your experience at Mare Dei Suites Hotel.

We are glad to read that you enjoyed our accommodation options with its stunning views, our staff and our beach. Positive comments are always a pleasure to receive and we have forwarded your impressions to all of our staff.

We are sorry to hear that our F&B services did not meet your expectations; we are continuously trying to improve our services so feel free to express your exact dissatisfaction by email to sales@maredei.gr
The hotel is indeed located in a unique spot combining the serenity of the nature with direct access to the beautiful beach and Ionian Sea views. Insects are part of the nature; and are something we cannot vanish in open air or avoiding by opening the window.

Despite this, we sincerely hope to have the opportunity and pleasure to welcome you again at Mare Dei Suites Hotel on your next stay.

Kind regards
Mare Dei Management
