There is nothing quite like the Astir Palace in Vouliagmeni. This hotel has history in my family. My brother and his family stayed there for 9 months after evacuating from Beirut 35 years ago, and my husband and I stayed on our honeymoon shortly after that. We've gone back every time we visit Greece, about once a year. Sometimes the food isn't so great, and sometimes the service is a bit off or the internet is tricky to figure out, but we are always greeted by the friendly staff at the door and the front desk in the nicest way, and can't wait to get there. The landscaping and architecture are five star, and the scent of the pines on a hot summer day is intoxicating. The views are to die for, and the beach bungalows nestled in the hillside are some of the prettiest rooms ever in any hotel. We've tried many of the bungalows; I like being as high up on the hill as possible where the views of the sunset through the trees is extraordinary. Be sure to go next door to Ithaki for dinner (the food and views are fabulous, although the prices are high), or try some of the new places nearby - friends have said they are great. There also are lots of restaurants in Vouliagmeni well worth exploring, and transportation to Athens is easy. When you spend a day in Athens touring, it feels like heaven to return to the Astir!
