We stayed as a couple for 3 nights. It was pricey but I think well worth it.
Firstly - great location. Easy access and parking, views, short walk to a great beach, lift down into town. I seems to divide the people but I liked the hotel's styling. The main building is like something from a '70s bond movie - the mountain top base with décor of a period Swedish sensibility. I expected the elevator into the cliff to open up on a monorail or missile silo! The room was of a modern era and lovely. They did need someone to look at the light/curtains controls though as it was excessively complex and will snare capables and is guaranteed to confound stupids. Stay with the display rather than memorise the sequence of switches.
The service was excellent from reception to waiting. We got upgraded to the private pool villa which was much appreciated. Breakfast was excellent and it was reassuring to frequently see the kitchen staff inspecting the array to ensure it was of good quality and well presented. Dinner was more moderate and seems to be a fusion of Greek and varied international hotel fare - at top end hotel prices.
The town is noisy with various 'musical' chimes and noisy nightlife. Despite the double glazing, you can still hear plenty of it. Don't come to Nafplio though if that's not want you want. One big surprise though was the bats skimming the pool at dusk. We really enjoyed our stay though and it is a great base to head out and see the various sites of antiquity within an hour's drive.
