Hotel Saron
Ranked #3 of 3 Hotels in Sounio
Reviewed 7 March 2016

This is a small hotel located between the village of Lavrion (5kms) and Cape Sounion (5kms) where the famous Poseidon temple is located. Is also close to Athens airport just 30 mins ride and also close to Athens. There is a public bus service but you will better of to hire a car during your stay. The hotel has own pool and is just about 100 meters from a sandy beach. The staff is friendly and the owner Giannis is a great character. The rooms are clean and well cared for. Is a little hotel where one can enjoy a relaxed time close to Athens.

Room Tip: Best time to visit May to mid July and September to end October

Everything was pretty bad here. Rooms are about what you get at a youth hostel. The place is loud, walls and doors are paper thin, you can hear everything your neighbors are up to. Beds are uncomfortable. Elevator is up a flight of stairs so it's hard to get your bags in. It's also very expensive for what you get. Look elsewhere if you can, or go back to Athens to wait for your ferry, it's not that far. Not sure why anyone would ever stay here if you have a choice.

P.S. I can't figure out what was with the huge stuffed animals on the pool table. Maybe if they took them off people might hang out downstairs and have a drink or two.

Very family atmosphere.. The owner is very involved helping in every way possible... Rooms are simple, comfortable and the wifi works well. Pool was a good size and the restaurant tailored to our taste in food, even making us rice instead of chips when it wasn't even on the menu! It's definitely not a 2 star hotel!

I first visited The Saron, Sounio, when I was starting a fiction teaching business on the Isle of Kythnos which is reached from Lavrio port, a 15 minute drive from the upmarket resort that is Sounio. It was recommended by a Kythnos travel agent and apart from anything else is a bargain compared with most expensive Sounio hotels. It has a lovely spacious and friendly feel about it and the manager and her daughter both of whom speak good English are very warm and welcoming. There is a young night shift assistant, in his late 20s who is exceptionally helpful and courteous and will help you with taxis and ferry times etc. Add to that a beautiful pool and a superb buffet breakfast included in the price and you couldn't do better. I send all of my students there if they need to overnight before catching the Kythnos boat next day. They all love their stay at The Saron and as far as I'm concerned it's a godsend.

Room Tip: All rooms acceptable and never any noise problems

Family run hotel and a nice feel in that. Very friendly and helpful staff. Lavrion has no hotels so this one picks up the trade and I think they hold the price on that - general feeling was that its as overpriced. Clean, but decor somewhat 70's and needing some refurbishing the shower needs to be splay isolated so water can't get on the floor. Free wifi, but couldn't get it to work in my room. Basic continental breakfast - be nicer to have orange juice and not orange squash.
Big pool, unfortunately didn't get the time to swim.

Our plan was to have a last, meaningful day, before boarding our plane home late in the evening. The Saron enabled us to do so in trumps, and I highly recommend the experience. We arrived at Sounio latish on a very hot evening and made use of the 22-metre long pool straight away. It is a superb facility, well maintained. There is no big planted garden but enough sun loungers, etc if you need them and shade.
Room and toilet/shower were small but clean, recently refurbished, I think, and shower worked with good preassure. Bed was queen sized and very comfortable for our taste. Air conditioning and fridge (some noise there) worked well, and balcony was ideal for eating our supper (fruit).
Next morning (6am) we went to the nearby beach (5min walk) and saw the sun rise in perfect, clean and calm waters. Beautiful.
Breakfast was buffet type and had a good range of food. Bread fresh, mini tyropita, yoghur and honey....
We asked about check out time and they were very accommodating, allowing us to leave room at 3pm.
Went to visit the temple of Poseidon (3km away) and spent there 2.30 hours - a most extraordinary spot and were lucky to talk to some of the workers there who explained a number of interesting facts. The cafeteria has tremendous views. The ticket to temple allows you to visit am and sunset! we did not know - useful to do...
Back in the hotel we swam in the pool (too hot to be in the sea at that time) for another 2 hours - relaxing etc. We showered in room, packed... and went back to terrace for lunch which was very reasonable in price (29 euros) for two people: greek salad, fried squid, pork steak with fries, taramosalata and wine.
The nice city of Lavria is 5 mins away by car (excellent for nice cafes and market etc), and the airport is 30 mins away, by a good road. I totally recommend Sounio and the Saron for a last day in Greece.
By the way, less than half the price of the "posher" hotels by Sounio temple proper which don't have a pool. I frankly rate the pool super highly, and the friendly, unobtrusive family who runs the hotel

Room Tip: Almost beachfront!

Stayed there during a field trip with a large group, and again during field work with 2 people. Both cases they were very friendly and the hotel was quite functional. Good continental breakfast! Good bar! Good dinner options if you don't feel like going far. The pool is beautiful, and it's within walking distance to a beach. The family running it is very friendly and outgoing. I would definitely recommend staying here.
