“Great !!!!!”
Reviewed 29 March 2013

We stay a total of 14 nights and everything from the food, service, view from the room, was GREAT !! Very friendly and quite place to stay ! It is a very quite place located in the middle of a orange grove and olive trees over looking the bay. Everything was clean and well maintain, including the rooms, and the yard around the hotel.

We liked this place very much and this is be reflected by my ratings. The hotel is located on a hill, in the middle of an orchid; this makes it both quiet and beautiful at the same time.
The rooms are big and clean, with nice terraces and the swimming pool is very nice. You can also go down to the beach and if you walk 10 minutes you'll end up near the Sunken City.

The service was great and authentic. I highly recommend this place and we definitely want to go back sometime. Give it a try and I'm sure you'll love it.

Yialasi is a delightful family-run hotel, nestling amongst olive and orange groves on a slope overlooking the bay and old Epidavros. The gardens of the hotel are beautifully tended with flowers and fruits. A reasonably sized infinity pool overlooks the bay.

The rooms are very spacious, with large balconies overlooking the sea and mountains. Each room includes a small kitchenette with stove and fridge/freezer. Furnishing is simple but tasteful.

Breakfast is the highlight of day, with an astonishing array of fresh dishes, varied every morning. Fresh yoghurt, pomegranate picked from the garden, homemade jams, omelette, bruschetta, cake fresh from the oven, breads. The list goes on - and that was only the first morning!

We also ate at the hotel in the evening, and the food was equally fresh and delicious. Highly recommended, especially if you cannot be bothered to take the walk down the hill to the village.

The location is the only aspect which I give slightly less than full marks. It is in a beautiful setting and has outstanding views across the sea. However, it is a 5 minute drive or 30 minute walk into the village of Ancient Epidavros to where most of the shops and restaurants are. Some people may prefer to be closer - but I was glad of the need to burn off the calories from all the fantastic food! Athens is around an hour an half away - drive to City Parking on 23 Iera and get the metro into the centre.

My final comment goes to the hosts. The welcome was warm and genuine and we were made to feel very welcome. They achieved the right balance of being unobtrusive whilst friendly and attentive when needed.

If you're planning a trip to Greece you must stay here!

All guests have praised Yialasi so we were keen to see if we agree - and yes we do to 110%

We stayed in October 2012 four days at Yialasi and had fantastic time. Yialasi is much more than apartment house - you feel like coming to a friends place. The owner makes almost anything possible to make your stay memorable

What was excellent with our stay:
+ high room quality. As there were not many guests in mid october we were shown rooms both in the upper (new) and lower houses. The upper house is recently build of high standard materials. Only thing missing there was kitchen (which was available in older rooms). Terrace and the view was superb. However sunset goes on the other side of the peninsula since the view is towards east
+ Amazing breakfasts which were different each day. Many of the ingredients came from own garden. The sunrise, view, service and the quality ranks their breakfast very high on my list!
+ dinners - no menu available but explaining what is available and amending the menu based on requests. Price was the about the same what they themselves suggested in the restaurants down in village but after testing their kitchen first time for dinner we never went elsewhere
+ you see everywhere that this place is well looked after. Places are clean, garden flourishes, pool is great, small animals are there for kids to enjoy - it was like an oasis and most important you feel welcomed
+ beach 3 minutes walking distance away

If you are looking for a base for your holiday in Greece where you can do trips to nearby islands or historical sights while being 2 hour driving distance from Athens airport - search nomore its yialasi!

The place and the scenery are fantastic. The rooms are simple but spacious. Floors are cleaned every day. The whole surroundings are taken good care of. The property as well as the customers are treated with love. You could feel that for instance when having breakfast. It's not only varying a bit every day but it's also designed to respect for Greek tradition. You could feel that the owners really enjoyed to serve they customers.

It started with a very professional booking experience. The rooms are relatively basic but have what you need. The view however is amazing. The pool is pristine and you can order and be served snacks and drinks at the pool. The breakfasts are very homely with fantastic fresh ingredients. It's a standard breakfast but you can ask for customizations. We were a group of 5 with 2 kids and we all loved it every time. We did not have many lunch and dinner meals but the ones we did were great. The owners were very accommodating and respectfully friendly but not intrusive. We were not expecting much from an accomodation perspective from our visit to Epdavros but Hotel Yialasi definitely over delivered. Definitely the place to stay if you are in the area and certainly a consideration as a destination even if you were not going to Epidavros.

This place is fantastic. The website does not gives it justice. It is an oasis of peace and beauty for all senses. The rooms are beautiful and clean with plenty of space to relax. The food is delicious and plentiful. The surrounding stunning. The position for sightseeing spot on. The service impeccable. Costas and Panagiota go out of their way to make you feel at home. We could only stay two nights as we had booked in Monemvassia but we will be back at the end of our holiday or next year for a much longer stay!
