We spent just one night here (unfortunately! Would LOVED to have stayed several) on our return from Santorini. When we arrived at the hotel, they were busy with a large group from Brazil, so we did have to wait appx. 30 minutes to check in---BUT they sent us to the bar with a comp drink, and voila! Upgraded to an amazing suite! It couldn't have been more perfect. The bathroom was huge, beautifully fitted out. The view was directly onto the Temple of Zeus and the Parthenon in the distance---we didn't want to clese the curatins at night, it was so gorgeous! We had a light dinner and drinks on the rooftop terrace, which is stunning---best rooftop with view I've been on! The pool area is lovely, and we sat outside at the pool early in the evening for a snack and a drink. We just wished we had planned to stay several days here. Perfect in every way! Service was excellent, bags brought to our room, taxi called and negotiated for us in the a.m. to the airport, and breakfast was OK--not great, but in view of the whole experience, a very minor blemish. I put 4 stars on "sleep quality" because the mattress was a bit soft.
