It was an absolutely wonderful and relaxing experience. Our suite was so beautiful, spacious and well designed, and our patio offered an out-of-this-world view of the sunset. The hotel staff was extraordinary -cheerful, friendly, and extremely kind and accommodating. All meals were delicious, rich breakfast and delightful lunch and dinner options. The real gem is the private beach and mud...

Enjoyed the hotel rooms and service. The sandy beach was great. The restaurant could offer a wider variety of choices but the quality was excellent at a rather high price. Very clean and quiet rooms offering great sea view and isolation.

This place rocked! It is located on the southwest coast of Greece, on the Peloponnese Peninsula. It took us 3.5 hours to drive here from Athens, and it was so worth it. The hotel is located off of a 1 km long dirt road, which is so awesome, because it is remote enough to be completely relaxing, but still only...

Let me start by saying that there are many things about this lovely little corner of "out of the way" that deserve the highest rating. The private beach is to die for - perfect sea swimming, beautiful white sand, sunbeds and umbrellas for maximum comfort. It is just about 1/2 hour's drive from Ancient Olympia, which is an incredible archaeological...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Mare Dei Suites Hotel is located in the beautiful Southern region of Peloponnese near the village of Skafidia and town of Pyrgos in the Elis region. The hotel has an eye-catching setting of nature offering a panorama of the Ionian Sea, the sea of the ancient Greek Gods, a fact to which it owes its name. The hotel overlooks a magical little bay while harmonically resting on a naturally green hillside. On the golden sandy beach our guests will come across by natural springs and beautiful rock formations as well as natural argyle. Most of our rooms enjoy unimpeded views of the daily journey of the Sun and the Moon until they disappear into the deep waters of the Ionian Sea. All that while listening to the soothing sound of the soft waves and the salty breeze touching the skin.In Mare Dei Suites Hotel each spot will give you the feeling of relaxation and quietness. A golden beach with your private sunbed, our beautiful swimming pools, the pool bar, the well-cared garden with herbs and flowers, our Traditional Mediterranean restaurant, our Spa Center and a conference room which can be transformed to one’s needs. ... more   less
