Hotel Iria Mare Hotel 2 star

Navplion 210 60, Grèce Nafplio, Greece
Amy Adejokun Section editor

Looking down from above, the Iria Mare has a very unusual layout: Its immaculate white bungalows are arranged lengthwise on a strip of land surrounded by fields, making it feel a little isolated. This is, of course, good news for those looking for peace and relaxation as there is no noise here to disturb you. So, if you're looking for somewhere to spend a quiet holiday with long siestas and hours spent reading on the beach, this is the place for you. Otherwise, you had probably better look elsewhere.

    Location 5.5 /10

    The Iria Mare stands at the heart of the countryside, 30 minutes from the town of Nafplio and 106 mi from the nearest airport, in Athens.

    Accommodation 6.20 /10

    The guest rooms at the Iria Mare are basic and overlook either the gardens, the swimming pool or the surrounding mountains, and whilst some do have a kitchen, you'll need to make sure you have all the groceries you need as there is no mini -market on site. All of the guest rooms have air conditioning, installed in the middle of the room like a piece of furniture, whilst safe deposit boxes are available to hire at reception for around 2,5 pounds a day. All rooms also have a refrigerator and a television broadcasting various channels. The blue-tiled bathrooms, for their part, offer a pretty average level of comfort, and the rooms also have balconies, furnished with a couple of chairs, where you can enjoy the night air or admire the rural landscape around you.

    Overview 6.20 /10

    The Iria Mare consists of a main building and a row of 8 two storey bungalows. On one side there are parking spaces directly outside each bungalow and on the other you'll find a pretty, tree-lined walkway, very practical for those staying in the bungalows at the far end, which are a good distance from the swimming pool and other facilities. The entire complex was built in 1991 and renovated in 2006. The entertainment team arranges a variety of activities for holidaymakers, including evening entertainment, sketches and live theatre in café-like surroundings, with an independent group coming in to provide Greek folklore entertainment every Thursday night.

    Food and drink 6.20 /10

    The main restaurant is located on the other side of the road, on the beach, and whilst lunch is an à la carte affair, dinner is served as a buffet. With a capacity of 400 guests inside the restaurant and a further 600 on the large terrace, you're not going to be eating on top of each other, but there is certainly a lack of privacy. As for the buffet, don't expect to get a lot for your buck here when it comes time to feed 600 hungry guests. There is another restaurant in the main building that is open during the winter season, as well as three bars: the Scirocco - on the beach, the Levante - at the poolside, and the Maistros - in the main building.

    Beach 7.20 /10

    The beach at the Iria Mare lies on the other side of a very quiet road, though there is a small tunnel you can use to get there, and is quite a way from the bungalows located on the other side of the complex. Wide and 200m-long, it is particularly quiet as there are no other hotels in the surrounding area. Deck chairs and parasols are arranged on the large pebbles and you will need to bring sandals with you. The sea here is calm and clear, making it perfect for novices who fancy trying their hand at windsurfing or kayaking.

    To know

    The latest work done at the Iria Mare included the addition of a new group of bungalows, this time built on the sea-side of the complex. A swimming pool for the bungalows at the back is also planned, though a date has not yet been set.
