The peculiarity of the Peloponnese hospitality industry is that there are not many hotels on the peninsula. At the same time, they are scattered, similar to large resort towns with rich infrastructure. Among them, those who offer a full range of services for family travelers hold the palm.
Honestly, it is here that you have the opportunity to appreciate a vacation with children in Greece in all its glory.
Good five-star complexes coexist harmoniously with cute home hotels, which have not even reached 3 stars. Five-star hotels of the most popular Greek chains are based on the coast. Resorts that have managed to earn 4 stars compete with them in terms of service level. They are united by location and cuisine – on the first line of the coast and the all-inclusive food format.
Large networkers focus on the serious water sector: the territories are equipped with a network of pools, often with water slides, and sometimes whole water parks . Each resort provides free Internet access, but often the speed is so slow that it does not allow sending photos and videos to relatives. More powerful wi-fi – for a fee.
Do not hope to spend your holidays in an economy format, the price tags bite in a European way. Even the rare three-star resorts are not going to give up.

The club version of the previous resort is its network “brother”, which means that the territory is one for two .

Grecotel Casa Marron 4 *
This hotel with children, located in the town of Lakopetra by the sea, makes it especially convenient to spend your holidays. Parents can enjoy the holidays while the child is busy with their own business – the children will definitely bring home the amazing beauty of clay crafts, the baggage of new songs and winning diplomas in all kinds of funny competitions. Once a week – watching cartoons under the starry sky.
The “all-inclusive” food format allows you to enjoy the original Greek cuisine and the best practices of European chefs. A special meal is provided for a small child, in his menu there are mashed vegetables, fruit cocktails, light puree soups.
Accommodation is offered in one of the main buildings; lovers of a quieter environment may prefer a bungalow. There is imported sand on the shore, so there are not many pebbles. A gentle entry into the sea is another contribution to the piggy bank of advantages. You still need to get to a serious depth, so swimming here is comfortable with a one-year-old baby.
Grecotel Olympia Riviera and Aqua Park 5*
The network complex is very calm and quite expensive, judging by the information from the catalogs of tour operators. Grecotel has chosen a cozy place on the 1st line on the coast of Kallini for him . 45 minutes drive from the air harbor, the road does not have time to tire.
5 stars are read in every detail , although you can’t tell in appearance – they are simple and already slightly shabby. However, the “filling” is decent. These are superior rooms with exclusive cosmetics, teapots in the premises, and a beach bag with accessories as a gift.
The main asset is the beach : children can safely run in the water two dozen meters from the shore, there are almost no waves. It gives a real pleasure from the seaside holiday, it is not without reason that it was awarded the “Blue Flag”. In winter, a heated indoor pool saves you.
You can count on quality service, you will not be disappointed. Employees are extremely polite, courteous, anticipate every desire. They are greeted with drinks, a buggy is brought to the place of residence.
Freshly squeezed juices, porridge, yoghurts for breakfast. We always have the ripest fruits and amazing desserts, amazing spring rolls, ice cream for every taste … And, of course, seafood. You can endlessly list the gastronomic map. And how wonderful it is to dine on the veranda overlooking the golden sunset!
We recommend the complex to those who love silence and avoid noisy parties . A fragrant eucalyptus grove stretches just outside the perimeter. Just a kilometer away there is a village with several taverns and tiny shops.
Grecotel Ilia Palms 4*
Ilia Palms has charming features and excellent opportunities for a great time, sharing the area with the previous Olympia Riviera. A four-star hotel in the Peloponnese for families with a child is practically the best option . There are many arguments.
It has its own water park with an excellent children’s sector, consisting of play areas and water slides of various sizes. Trams run all over the territory, the kids do not spend a day not to ride them.
In the restaurant there are high chairs for babies up to 3 years old. Dinner for kids starts earlier than for adults – another great service. Free access to microwave and blender. They will definitely bring a cot to the room, and if necessary, they will send a nanny. You can also rent a stroller. It is not a problem to leave the child in the mini-club, he will be fed, entertained and even put to bed. In the evening – an incendiary disco, which is not missed by any young guest, and then funny contests.
There were also disadvantages. So, a staircase with many steps leads to the beach , it can seem tiring, especially the descent. But the sea conquers at first sight: clean, transparent, plays in the sun with azure colors.
Grecotel Olympia Oasis 5*
The list of hotels for children was supplemented by Oasis a couple of decades ago. And this is really an oasis – tranquility and unrestrained fun, quiet walks along green alleys and entertainment in a water park with a scattering of water slides. The resort shares the territory with Ilia Palms, so they have the same infrastructure. A pine grove with asphalt paths is good for walking.
Just over 300 rooms of various configurations promise comfort. Budget tourists choose “standards”, but even they have slippers, bathrobes, a kettle, and do not require additional payment for anything.
In all water sectors, and there are plenty of them here, including the lazy river, the safety of young children and adolescents is guarded by lifeguards.
When choosing a tour, it is worth considering that the hotel is located in a mountainous area, due to the peculiarities of the landscape, it is not suitable for people with disabilities.
Residents of not all premises can count on everything, the system applies only to bungalows. The rest are content with half board, which means that drinks for lunch and dinner are paid. Nearby there is a village, where a couple of shops with groceries have settled, the prices are pleasing.
