“An Oasis near Patras”
Reviewed 3 August 2012

There are 3 connected/related Poseidon properties - Hotel, Palace, and the Apartments. The palace and apartments share a common pool, restaurant, lobby, etc. All the apartment rooms are closer to the pool and the ocean and all are overlooking both the pool and the ocean. Some of the Palace hotel rooms have good views but just from the balcony. The Hotel is a separate property also with a pool and beach access. Large pool at the Palace/Apartments, Smaller pool at the Hotel. We were promised a sea view room at the palace for 3 (my wife and 11 year old daughter + me). When we arrived we were given a parking lot view with a balcony. The balcony had view of the ocean if you lean over the rail. They had a small uncomfortable rollaway for my daughter. When I complained they suggested I move to the apartments for another $10 Euro. This was true triple room with 2 single beds pushed together and a third next to it. Also a small kitchenette with a fridge but no utensils, plates, etc. Nice view with a balcony. I wanted to use the kitchen and take advantage of all the local roadside watermelons, tomatoes, cucumbers, fruit, etc. I therefore had to go buy a knife, plates, forks, glasses, soap, etc. Tip for those that complained about the air conditioner... I could not get mine working and finally the girl at the desk mentioned that my sliding glass door to balcony needed to be shut and locked for the AC to work. That did the trick. The pool is very nice with a convenient bar. During the afternoon many local guys and girls seem to come to the pools at the Hotel and Palace/Apartments to lounge and cool off in the pool. We enjoyed this and felt part more integrated into the local scene. There are no towels for the pool. Most people seemed to have brought their own beach/pool towel. This seems to be common in Greece. Parking is partially covered and convenient. As people mentioned the "beach" is really just the edge of the water with a few round rocks and a little seaweed. They have a floating platform to walk out on so you can jump in the ocean and be deep enough to be over the seaweed. It is a fantastic large calm bay so you can swim out as far as you want. The pool deck next to the ocean is a fantastic place to watch the sun set over the ocean. They have a large lawn on the edge of the bay with lawn chairs. The pool closed at 7:30 which frustrating since it is light until 8:00 and plenty warm. The included buffet Breakfast is OK with a fairly large selection of food. The food is good at the hotel and very reasonable. We ate there several times for convenience but preferred to go to the local Tavernas where the locals eat. The small town of Kaminia does not have much to offer in the way of food or anything else but there are a string of small towns on the beach nearby with nightlife and Taverna dining right on the beach. There are a couple of world class “international” sandy beaches (eg rows of beach chairs, umbrellas, snack bar, etc. ) about 18-20km from the hotel.

We visited Poseidon Palace hotel last July, for a relaxing weekend.
The rooms were pretty nice, large and clean.
The surrounding areas were well maintained, having a nice pool and its pool bar, where you could relax and enjoy your day.
The breakfast was rather poor and the beach actually didn't exist, there is just one platform where you can dive from.
All these compared to an average price of 60 euros for a double room, make the specific hotel worth its money,

I have chosen that hotel because of the nice pics on the website, but I should have read more carefully the negative recommentations.. Definitly I was very disappointed. Its no 5star and would get maybe a 3star rating. There is no beach, but you could go swimming in the sea if you walk over stones and ugly smelling seaweed. The room with balcony and the pool were nice, but the Wlan, which was really important for me, was not working in my room and pool area. In the restaurant area the Wlan was ok.  Also much more terrible was, that the aircon was defect. After my complains to the manager's doughter she came with a technician who pushed a few times against the switchboard - but...  no success. After a while they have fixed it somehow. The next morning the Wlan was working, but due to the really bad connection it was useless.. I used it again in the breakfastroom.
 There was also a very strong smell from the gully, but when I complained again, nothing happened. Due to the situation that the doughter was unfriendly and rude to me, I tried to find a solution and I fixed it by myself, because the smell was really too bad and I did not want to have more discussions. I want to spend a nice holiday and not to justify always about problems with the room.
The restaurant was quite ok and the staff there was very friendly. Also the pool bar staff was helpful and very friendly.
 I will definitly not come back again and would not recommend it to my friends... A better management, better facility maintenance and customer friendlier attitude of some people here to the customers, who bring their money could make the hotel really a nice jewel.
It's a pity!

Went in June of this year with my partner. Hotel is nice but I wouldnt rate it higher than a 3*. Rooms were apartment-like. The holder for the shower head was broken and was short which made it hard to stand in the bath and have a shower. Breakfast was a buffet which meant any hot food wasn't very hot and and cold food mostly consisted of breads. On the plus side, the pool and pool area were fabulous. Food and drink were completely overpriced. The sea looked lovely but it is unfortunate that there was no bit of a strand. Staff were accommodating but their english was limited except for the reception staff who we had to refer to if we needed anything for our room or to eat/drink. The hotel is far from every amenity except for the bus stop into Patras which itself was a 3 hour bus journey from Athens. Overall, it was an ok stay.
