TUI SUNEO Hydrele Beach
Just as its name suggests, the Hydrele Beach Hotel is located right on the beach. Leafy trees and a roomy sun terrace surround the pool, while sun-coloured loungers and hammocks decorate the area.
Down on the sand-and-pebble beach, a bar keeps you topped up with cocktails while loungers and parasols provide a welcome break from the heat.
Buffet meals are served in the international restaurant, which also provides some beautiful views out to sea. Cocktails also come courtesy of the trio of bars. One’s by the beach, another’s by the pool and the final one has an evening piano soundtrack.
Overview of Pythagorion
Samos is an island of immaculate beaches, charming restaurants and lots of activities. When you head on a holiday to Samos, you’ll understand why it’s referred to as ‘the jewel of the Aegean Sea’.
Pythagorion is a relaxed town. The whitewashed houses look picture-perfect against the turquoise sea, while cosy tavernas and beautiful beaches provide the ideal coastal retreats.
With a stay at the TUI SUNEO Hydrele Beach, it’s also easy to explore the town’s rich history. The town’s named after the mathematician and philosopher Pythagoras who was born here more than 2,500 years ago, and a statue of him still stands in the harbour to this day.
Things to do in Pythagorion
The TUI SUNEO Hydrele Beach is located in the Potokaki neighbourhood of town. This means that seafront shops and tavernas are right on the doorstep.
Life revolves around the supersized beach. You can relax and enjoy some water sports here by day but, in the evening, it regularly doubles up as an entertainment venue.
The resort centre of Pythagorion is a half-hour walk away. If you feel like resting your legs, there’s a daily bus service that stops right outside the complex. In the centre of the resort, the harbour bars and restaurants steal the limelight. They’re great spots to watch the boats bob in the water and enjoy some traditional Greek cuisine.
On the outskirts of town, there’s an ancient sanctuary built to honour the goddess Hera and the Tunnel of Eupalinos, a giant underground aqueduct carved into the limestone rock.
The picturesque town of Pythagorion is the perfect island pick. One of the liveliest resorts on the island of Samos, Pythagorion is a delightful town for groups, families and couples alike.
