Porto Rio Hotel: The best summer vacation destination is in Rio

Porto Rio Hotel: An impressive luxury hotel complex in Rio that offers everything you could want for your vacation in the summer of 2022. Is there a better word than summer? For us no.. and that’s because it includes the best company, a beautiful trip, a fun excursion, diving in the water, relaxation and carelessness. All this and much more, one can find two and a half hours from the center of Athens and just a few seconds from the sea: at the Porto Rio Hotel.

It is a seaside resort in the area of ​​Rio, just outside the city of Patras, which combines the blue of the sea and the green of nature, resembling a real paradise on earth! With more than 20 years of experience in tourism and hospitality, the Porto Rio Hotel , built on a green area of ​​35 acres, with its very good prices and infrastructure , its highly qualified staff and its high quality facilities , is all year round the best destination for families, friends and couples in love.

Its close distance from Athens and easy  access  by road (at a time when ferry ticket prices have skyrocketed), makes Porto Rio the perfect choice for a holiday of a few or several days. Leaving behind the stress of everyday life and the hazy landscape of the capital, we can enjoy a carefree and relaxed… long weekend or even a few weeks (leave permitting of course).

As tenants of Porto Rio, we can choose between three types of accommodation, depending on our needs. The Central Building-hotel offers luxury and comforts of a four-star hotel through lux suites, spacious and fully equipped standard double or triple rooms. There is also the “Porto Rio Village”, the three-star “village” of the complex with its beautifully decorated bungalows and finally, the ” Achaios ” complex which  operates exclusively in the spring and summer season, ideal for families. It is worth mentioning that the  large and spacious common areas of the hotel, ensure to those who wish to do so the necessary distance from other residents, while observing all hygiene rules , Porto Rio  guarantees a safe and healthy environment.

One of the many reasons that we will definitely visit the hotel this summer is its all inclusive facilities and services . For the lovers of the sea, right in front of the hotel, there is the fully organized, private beach . There, we enjoy the sun, absorbing the necessary vitamin D or even better, vitamin SEA.  The Porto Rio Hotel also has  two seawater swimming pools, -whose purity is guaranteed by frequent checks-, equipped with umbrellas and comfortable sunbeds suitable for sunbathing and relaxing. Beach or pool… all free !

At Rio lounge bar , Poolbar and Kaibar we will enjoy a cool mixed juice, a cold beer or even a spicy cocktail. Mediterranean and international cuisine  Thea and Thalassa restaurants ,the first à la carte and the second with a menu, offer all day meals: breakfast, lunch and dinner, including many gluten free and vegetarian options. In fact, at the breakfast buffet there is a “Greek Corner” with products from local producers, including honey, fruit and cheese. The name of the restaurants, not by chance, as we can enjoy our food with a panoramic view of the bridge of Rio Antirio and the background of Klokova and Varasova, the twin mountain peaks of Aetolia, with our gaze making an intermediate stop in the sparkling waters of Patraikos Gulf.

We take a break from everyday life, but does our body want to stay active? No problem! Porto Rio has modern sports facilities, from  a tennis court  (with the possibility of teaching) to  beach volleyball courts and a fully equipped gym with the possibility of being guided by a personal trainer. For children there is a specially designed mini club  with daily activities and  a playground where they can play safely . And for us older ones, who still love games, there is a casino in the Porto Rio area  with a variety of different games and a high level of customer service in a warm and friendly environment. This experience fully combines the cosmopolitan atmosphere of international casinos with unsurpassed Greek hospitality.

After intense sports or long hours of sunbathing, we will be transferred to Pemtousia Spa Beauty Fitness , which offers hydromassage, sauna and hammam services, yoga sessions, facial and body care, hair salon and manicure-pedicure for moments of absolute relaxation. In this area we also find the hotel’s third outdoor swimming pool.

The location of the hotel is also suitable for activities in the surrounding area, such as diving, paragliding, kite surfing in – famous for this sport – Drepano, as well as horse riding in the nearby equestrian club. The most nature lovers can try the experience of bird tourism in the Kalogera Lagoon and the more adventurous rafting in the Evinos river and kayaking in the Ladonas and Erimanthos rivers.

The Porto Rio Hotel , in addition to being a center for relaxation and recreation, can also be a hub for excursions. The beach town of Rio , 10 minutes away on foot, rewards us with its green landscape, nice beach, good tavernas and busy cafes. In less than 15 minutes, we reach the beautiful Nafpaktos , one of the oldest Greek cities and a very beautiful location. A little further down is the highly romantic Galaxidi , which is impossible to miss especially if you are traveling with your partner. Also, the hotel, due to its privileged location, makes it easy to access important attractions, such as the Castle of Rio , the Lighthouse of Drepano , thearchaeological museum and conservatory of Patras, the archaeological site of Olympia and Delphi and the Monastery of Agia Lavra. And for those traveling to the hotel by means of transport, Porto Rio has taken care of that too.. it offers the possibility to rent a car to discover all these enchanting destinations. {https://www-athensvoice-gr}
