Where to stay in Spetses

The majority of the nicest villas and hotels are located in the old harbour and new harbour, which is called Dapia.

In these two places, you will find old, wonderful and renovated mansions but also small apartments and studios.

There are some settlements that you can book outside the main town, but you might feel a little bit isolated and the options are not so many.

Best Hotels in Spetses Island

1. Poseidonion Grand Hotel – Dapia

Poseidonion Grand Hotel Spetses

No list of the best hotels in Spetses can start without Poseidonion Grand Hotel.

It is a truly iconic place, and it feels like you are staying at a traditional old mansion!

The breakfast is delicious, and I strongly recommend getting an SPA treatment, as all staff members are very professional and know their job!

All members of staff are very professional and helpful.

Location-wise, the willingness of the staff to guide around the island and the feeling of the place make this hotel quite special!

Also, this hotel was one place, where The “Lost Daughter” with Olivia Colman, Jessie Buckley, Dakota Johnson, Ed Harris was filmed! We know that because when we visited the island in September 2020 we saw the crew members and cameras. Unfortunately, we didn’t spot any of the main Holywood actors!

It is a pleasant surprise in the centre of Spetses, especially entering the hotel and smelling all flowers.

The hotel was impeccably clean, and so is the fantastic swimming pool. Personally, I think Armata’s biggest asset, though, is its people with their warm and happy personalities and their eagerness to assist their guests.

Last but not least, it provides an exceptional breakfast as most of them are homemade with a great variety of pies, handmade jams (the fig is perfect!) and a variety of cheeses. More Information Here!
