Nafplia Palace Hotel – Nafplion our review
July 20, 2012 § 1 Comment
After a short search on the internet I came across the Nafplia Palace. I thought it would be hard finding a hotel last minute, but since most hotel business’s are based in the islands, so in the end we had 3 hotels to choose from: The Amman Porto Heli, The Romanos in Costa Navarino and the Nafplia Palace. The first being not having opened yet to public and the Romanos being 4:30 hours away by car led to their elimination (as flying was out of the question) so the Nafplia Palace being only 1:30 from the capital made it all alot accessible.
In short: Our stay was all together great, the staff was very helpful, the rooms were slick and modern, the restaurant delicous.
We were given a room upgrade, which overlooked the bay and was next to the villa’s separate pool, the room was slick in a wooden parquet, the size was perfect for a couple and had a nice sized balcony, the bathroom was literally huge. It included: 2 wash basins, a large jacuzzi bathtub overlooking the bay and with a glass ceiling, and the shower could also be used as a sauna (we didnt use it, as being in the scorching 43 degrees outdoor, did the trick). The bed was wrapped in Frette sheets, and with a special foam mattress that was super confortable. All together perfect, if not for the hundreds of light switches, all with different commands, from opening doors, to one making the shaded curtains come down, the next the curtains of the terrace, some the lights in the bathroom, it was all very confusing as nothing was labelled. The rest was perfect.
The hotels restaurant was very good, even though it was quite pricey compared to usual greek restaurants, the quality was exceptional and my salmon was absolutely delicious. Do go to there around 20:20 so you dont miss out the beautiful sunset.
The hotel was also very helpful at suggesting were we should go for the day beach-wise and where should we dine into town.
All together a very relaxing weekend that couldn’t have been better.
