Amy Adejokun Section editor

As its name suggests, you rarely come across such a large facility in mainland Greece! The site of the Grand Resort Lagonissi takes up an entire peninsula. The hotel covers approximately 74 acres. The quality of its infrastructure and its high reputation for service has earned it the distinction of one of "The Leading Hotels of the World". Open since 1963, but completely rebuilt in 2001, it regularly conducts renovations in order to keep its infrastructure in top condition. Another plus: the hotel is frequented by international celebrities like Meryl Streep, Aerosmith, Leonardo DiCaprio, Mel Gibson, and Bon Jovi.

    Location 3.0 /10

    The resort is just under 14 miles from Athens Airport, a half an hour's drive. The centre of Athens is 28 miles away, while the port of Piraeus is 37 miles away.

    Accommodation 7.20 /10

    There are lots of different guest room categories here. They all have their specific characteristics: a garden location, a view of the sea, a location right on the beach, a shared or private pool, etc. Some even have gysms. To sum things up, we'll simply say that there are guest rooms, cabanas, suites, and villas. However, the decor is quite similar. The theme consists of various shades of beige and wooden floors for most. The basic category guest rooms are 25m². The room is nice but appears small as it is heavily furnished: a lounge area, a desk, and a table. There's nothing lacking when it comes to amenities: large TVs, room service, air-conditioning, and free Internet access. However, it's a shame the bathrooms are so small. The suites offer much larger bathrooms as well as separate toilets.

    Overview 8.70 /10

    Its location on a secluded peninsula guarantees that the Grand Resort Lagonissi doesn't have any irritating neighbours! The establishment is simply massive: it covers some 74 acres. It has been designed like a huge Greek village with whitewashed limestone buildings. Its stone walkways, dotted here and there with well-tended lawns that are well maintained even in the heat, give it a charming character. The architect had the bright idea of positioning all of the hotel structures to face the sea. And there's no lack of leisure options here: land sports, water sports, swimming pools, kids club, spa... There is even an outdoor cinema and a wedding chapel! The resort offers a pleasant holiday setting, as long as you're a fan of huge complexes...

    Food and drink 7.70 /10

    If you like variety in your dining, you will not be disappointed! After all, the Grand Resort Lagonissi has ten restaurants and bars! And, of course, each has its own decor and its own cuisine. Guests can start the day at the Aphrodite where breakfast is served in buffet style. After that, it's a tough choice. First, there's the Ouzeri Aegeon where guests can feast on Greek-style seafood. Italian food lovers should head over to the Captain's House Restaurant. Fans of Cretan specialties can enjoy their meal by the seashore at the Galazia Akti. Mediterranean cuisine is served at the Mediterraneo. And you could even treat yourself to Polynesian dishes or sushi at the Kohylia, which also has a bar. By the way, while we are at it, you can also go out for drinks at the Lobby Lounge Bar by the Piscina, which features a snack menu, or at Veghera The Club.

    Spa 8.2 /10

    The ThalaSpa Chenot is a real spa just as we like. The candle flames seem to dance to the soft background music. It is the perfect place to relax and unwind. The various rooms are decorated simply. Dim lights add to the peaceful atmosphere. Keep in mind that you can't get an outdoor message at the spa because all the rooms are located indoors. The care and treatment menu has the classic options but also offers detoxification cures for weight loss. The beauty salon caters to both men and women. And gym enthusiasts will appreciate the gym with its breathtaking view of the sea.

    Beach 6.70 /10

    The Peninsula Grand Resort Lagonissi is lucky to have a number of beaches. Considering the size of the establishment, this ensures that guests don't ever feel crowded. Everyone can enjoy one of the different beaches. The beaches' blue flags testify to their quality, and they are all equipped with plenty of deckchairs and parasols. Everyone's privacy is respected thanks to the size of the area provided for the equipment. The water is beautiful, but the sand is slightly coarse. Water sports enthusiasts can play to their heart's content. There are even two water sports centres!

      The Stanley hotel is located on Karaiskaki Square, a few feet from the subway station bearing the same name. But do not expect great luxury. The air conditioning does not work very well and the windows fail to filter the incessant noise of the town, both day and night.

      Open since the 30s, the King George proudly sports the "Luxury Collection Hotel" label. This elegant establishment enjoys an exceptional location in the Plaka area. Unfortunately, it does not have much to offer in terms of facilities, but it is comfortable nevertheless. The hotel decor gives pride of place to various tones of beige which blend perfectly with the wooden furniture. The King George carries out regular renovations in order to keep the hotel at its best. The latest renovation work took place in 2013.

      The Electra Palace Athens is a pleasant hotel with charm. It is one of the best hotels in the Greek capital. The facilities are comfortable and the service level is very respectable. Its greatest attraction is its view over the Acropolis, under a mile's walk away. Its location in the Plaka district is also an asset - the moment you step outside of the hotel you are instantly immersed in the Greek atmosphere of the city.

      The NJV Athens Plaza is a comfortable hotel with a certain charm. Its facilities are well laid out and decorated, even though the standard guest rooms aren't to everyone's taste. Its lack of facilities is compensated by its agreement with a nearby club. Clearly the location at the heart of Athens is one of its main assets.

      Like many of the establishments in the Hilton hotel group, the Hilton Athens is very much focused on business clients.

The main building's architecture is not particularly appealing from the outside but it contains a wealth of surprises inside.

      Open since the 1960s, the Arion Resort & Spa is named after the legendary poet. Its infrastructures were updated by architect Manolis Vourekas five years after its opening. At the time, it welcomed many famous guests, such as Nelson Mandela, Frank Sinatra, Jane Fonda, Jackie Onassis and Tony Blair. In 2004, the P. Masourides Company architecture firm and the Hirsch Bedner Associates interior design company carried out some major renovations. Their goal was to retain the establishment's classic style all while adding a touch of modernity. After it was re-opened in 2006, the Arion was welcomed into the Starwood Luxury Collection family. Today it belongs to the huge Astir Palace complex, like the Westin Athens and, in 2016, the W. The grounds extend over 74 acres on a private peninsula.
