Hotels with pools in Athens 

Athens Hilton Hotel – City center

The number one hotel in this list of hotels with pools in Athens should be the Hilton. It is located in the heart of the city. The Hilton has a shallow separate children’s pool surrounded by a grass area and in the big pool, there is a separate lane for the kids to swim. There is a very good team of lifeguards around the pools. The pool offers a good variety of family-friendly healthy snack choices in the pool bar. Towels are provided. Hilton hosts  Sunday Family Lunches too. These are held in the Byzantino restaurant. You can find out more about the pool and the Sunday Family Lunch in my review here.

Balux – Glyfada Athenian Riviera

For hotels with pools in Athens, Balux is not really located in the city center but on the Athenian Riviera. The premium Balux pool and beach club offer a full day out for the family. The pool is located next to the beach so plenty of opportunity for combined sand and water play. I find this pool very convenient with kids because the entrance to the beach and pool includes a towel, chair, umbrella and all the other facilities such as changing rooms, lockers and parking.

Civitel Attik Rooms and Apartments 

The pool of Civitel Attik in the suburb of Marousi in North Athens is open to both hotel guests and visitors (with entrance fee). The pool is small but deep. There is no separate children’s pool but the grass area around the pool makes it a pleasant place to play and splash with your little ones. The hotel is a reasonably priced solution if you find yourself in the Northern part of Athens.

Divani Caravel

The rooftop swimming pool on top of the Divani Caravel hotel in the center of Athens offers an amazing view on both the Acropolis and the Lycabettus Hill. The pool is not suitable for babies and toddlers. Unlike other hotel pools in Athens, the Divani Caravel pool is open for it’s guests all year round.

Divani Apollon Palace & Thalasso

The outdoor swimming pools at the Divani Apollon Palace & Thalasso in Kavouri on the Athens Riviera are open for both hotel guests and visitors (with an entrance fee). The outdoor pool looks more like a small water park and I believe it is one of the nicest in Athens. There are two outdoor pools, one is filled with seawater. There are a children’s section and jacuzzi s. The pool area is connected to the hotel’s private beach by an underground tunnel in case you want to swim in the sea too. (If you are a visitor, note that there are different entrance prices for the pool and the beach) During the hot summer, I found it very helpful to park in the underground hotel parking to avoid a very hot car at the end of the day. The grass area at the private beach is great for babies.

Plaza Resort Hotel

Set on Anavyssos Beach, this 5 star hotel features a large outdoor pool on the pebbled beach that overlooks the sea. The pool has a shallow part but no special children’s section. There are also water sports, a mini soccer pitch and a playground. Plaza is not cheap but very good if you want to combine the pool and beach. There is no separate kiddie pool but my young children manage fine in the big one. The water at the beach is very clean and clear and there are water sports and lifeguards. I love this beach because it gives me an island feel and a true holiday vibe.

Semiramis Hotel

In case that you decided to stay outside of the city center, there are several high quality hotels with pools in the suburbs of Athens. However, non are quite as visually stimulating as the neon pink Semiramis hotel in Kifissia (in the north of Athens). This hip design hotel is laden with contemporary artwork. The coloured pool is small and shallow but good for cooling off during the hot summer. Your k ids will love the colourful curvy shaped swimming pool and parents will enjoy the Miami-style glamour and the sunbathing decks. Click here for more information and to book your stay.

Somewhere Boutique Hotel

The pool of Somewhere boutique hotel in the beautiful seaside town of Vouliagmeni (in the south of Athens) is another stylish shallow pool that is suitable for small children. I loved day time lounging in the sun on the luxurious white sun-beds here. At night, I had dinner in Bistro Lutetia next to the pool. A very good restaurant that offers a special children’s menu and high chairs are available. Click here for more information and to book your stay.
