      Hi Debbie, thanks for taking a look. There is a beautiful hotel in Mykonos, Greece called the Grace Mykonos. If you book for three nights you get the 4th free and in low season you can negotiate better prices anywhere in Greece. The rooms are all luxury rooms but the best part is the view from the hotel. In Athens there is a 3 star hotel called Piraeus Dream Hotel and the prices range from 35 euros per day and up. Its situated in the business district near the metro station and there are many great attractions nearby.http://www.venere.com/hotels/athens/hotel-piraeus-...

      I would love to stay at that undersea hotel in Fiji! I wrote a hub about unusual restaurants recently, in which one of them included an underwater restaurant. Now I know of two cool underwater places that perhaps I would be able to visit one day. :-)

      Voted up and awesome!

      OMG-Yay for the tropical hotels! My favorite is the one in Bora Bora. I guess I will have to save and take the 'once in a lifetime' trip there. What an experience that ANY of these would bring. Thanks for sharing. Thumbs up / I / U and shared.
