Set back off the main track that runs the length of Mavrovouni Beach, this solid, modest, quiet, clean, well built, well maintained and well run, budget concious hotel is a must for a relaxing time at the magnificent - Mavrovouni Beach. The hotel is located between Gates A and B , at the Gytheion end of the beach, which means it is a very short drive to town for a night out or a fresh fish meal if one does not want to use the nearby, good taverna more than once. The beach is very close and there are several rows of sun shades and beach beds, together with a shower. All the rooms are fully equipped, spacious apartments ( ours comprised 3 rooms totalling 40+ square metres and two TVs ! ) with huge sea facing verandas, perfect for a glass of wine as the moon rises over the sea. The cooked to order - breakfast, which can be eaten in the pretty garden, is quite stunning and puts the meager fare at the nearby, more expensive and pretentious hotels to shame.
While we were there, a Dutch couple had visited the Palace Hotel first and then looked at all the other beach front hotels. They too chose the Diamond Palace. We were not surprised at all!
A very good base to use for tours around the Mani.More
