We went to Aegina 25 years ago on honeymoon, so we decided to return for our 25th wedding anniversary.
Aegina is not as well known as other Greek islands and trying to Google a package holiday there was difficult but fortunately Expedia were offering exactly what we wanted, so we booked the hotel and flight with them.
The hotel we had was called hotel Rachel it is owned and run by John & Maria a brother & sister Team, they made our stay very enjoyable and made us feel very welcomed and at home they were very friendly no matter what time of day or night we knew that if we needed anything they would do their best to accommodate us and the other guests.
John & Maria also gave us a lovely platter of ham, cheese, fruit and nuts and a bottle of wine to celebrate our anniversary as a gift which we did not expect but we were touched that they remembered.
The breakfast provided has too many things to list here but everyone’s needs were catered for. The rooms were clean and tidy and came with a private balcony, shower & toilet unit and the bed linen was changed daily.
The hotel is literally a 2 minute walk to the beach which is exquisite and has restaurants lining the beach so you could have lunch & dinner on the beach and only have a 2 minute walk back to the hotel.
Aegina is a beautiful island and we would highly recommend anyone thinking of travelling to Aegina to stay at hotel Rachel.

Maria and John are always there: to advise, help, offer a frappe, change a bulb in the room or just to chat. It makes all the difference.
Hotel is small, the rooms and showers are basic, the balconies are spacious, location is perfect, right on the beach. And all the restaurants and shops, as many as there are, are within 5 min walk.
30 min hike up to the Temple provides the necessary physical activity and some "food for the soul".
Very affordable, as well as everything in Aegina -Marina, especially in September.

The hotel is perfectly located - right next to the best beach on the island. There are also plenty of nice restaurants and shops around.
The room was small and could use some renovating but the balcony was really large and thanks to it the room felt bigger. And considering the low price, air conditioning and free wi-fi we really couldn't complain.
We loved the breakfasts - they was a lot to choose from and everything was delicious, especially the home-made jam of several kinds.
But what was really outstanding - was the hospitality of the owners - Maria and John. Maria and John really made us feel at home and welcome. They were so kind and so responsive to our every need, we have never seen such attitude before. Just one example - when we mentioned that we wanted to buy some fruit, John soon brought a big tray to our room - full of different kinds of fruit, vegetables, ham, cheese, etc. - all sliced and nicely served. And he insisted that everything he brought was on the house (!), so we did not pay anything for it all! That was really impressive.
We will have very warm memories of our stay at Rachel hotel.

For our first holidays in Greece, we decided to go Aegina, we did not plan or booked a hotel in advance but by a chance we found the Hotel Rachel which is a place we were exactly looking for : quality and good price, the owners are extremely nice and helpful (Maria and Yannis). Moreover the rooms are getting cleaned every morning and for the breakfast you have multiple choice and the last but not least it is about 2min to the beach !
