  • Very Good and highly recommended place tk learn about this marvelous creatures that share this world with us. The staff is really generous and kind in giving a tour and informing you of how this turtles get help, and how they are affected by humanity, this kind of people are the ones we need more on earth, because they are conscious of the struggle that this animals go through and they are always there to help them. It is a really great place, thanks to what I have experienced today now I want to help like them.
  • Great place to learn about the turtles and their struggles with the humanity. The staff is always kind enough to give you a tour and introduce you some of their turtles. I highly recommend everyone to visit this place and donate to help them do their amazing work. They have some pretty awesome t-shirts too!
  • Call before you go and they do their best to give you a tour and introduce some of the turtles even if it's not visiting times. We were very impressed with the hard work and volunteering for such a good cause.We will definitely visit again when we are back in Athens.
  • Fantastic place for kids and adults. A lot of lessons to be learned, in leaving with our ecosystem in harmony. Have visited many times and will again in the future. Turtles are rescued and then returned to the sea so you can see different ones almost every time.
  • These people do an amazing job rescuing en treating injured sea-turtles. The caretakers give a small tour through the facility and tell background story of every turtle.

Where to stay in Athens

If you come to Athens for its ancient history, stay in Plaka, a lively neighborhood located within walking distance of the city's major archaeological sites. Although relatively expensive, hotels in this part of town offer spacious rooms, private swimming pools, and rooftop cocktail bars. For less expensive but equally comfortable lodgings, consider boutique hotels and family-run inns in the quiet residential neighborhoods just a short drive south of Plaka. Good rooms fill up early in the season, so plan ahead and book in advance.
