The resort is equipped with 260 rooms, 79 bungalows and 4 suites including an Imperial Suite with its own pool.
Guests can choose from three separate beaches, 2 swimming pools (indoor heated with waterfall and outdoor), 4 tennis and 2 football courts and a special area (Mini Club) with activities for children.
There is also a diving center and watersports center, 4 restaurants, 3 bars, an outdoor amphitheater, a conference room for 500 people and a marina for boats.
The Barceló Hydra Beach Resort is located within walking distance to archaeological sites such as the ancient theater of Epidaurus that hosts the Greek Festival, Mycenae, Tiryns, Nafplion, Argos and dozens of others.
The resort offers accommodation with many packages at competitive prices that include All Inclusive, Half Board and B&B.
“We are confident that our hotel will become a magnet for tourists from around the world who wish to experience authentic Greece,” the resort’s general manager said.
