Pros: + The room was clean at first + Despite the loud noises in the evening/at night the location is good Cons: - During the week the room became dirtier and dirtier, especially the floor - Hotel owner makes excuses so he can charge you for nothing - No dishwashing liquid or dish brush (the cleanliness of kitchen utensils is...

From the beginnig till the end the service was awesome! The owner and his wife were charming, careing and lovely. They made our holiday with their personality and service. Our room was very clean and the staff did take care of us. I can truly recommend Platanes Apartments for everyone! Great value for money :)

Room was very bad and dirty. Bed was really bad because the madres was thin, stiff and covered with old sweat and even some blood stains. Room was also really noisy during nights because the bar next door was playing music really loud untill 4am. Pool looked so dirty that we even didn't want to go in there. George the... More

I would like to say that the hotel was nice but the people who work there where even better. The lad that ran the pub was very funny and kind. George made sure we were well taken care of. There was also a very pretty yet kind hearted receptionist that did what ever was possible to indure our stay. The... More

I thoroughly recommend this place. The apartments are clean and comfortable and the owner and staff charming. The apartments are near a wide sandy beach and the village as a whole was friendly and welcoming. Excellent value for money and ten out of ten for atmosphere.

My husband and myself had been to Platanes before but had not stayed at these apartments. We had a room right by the pool which admittedly needed a clean(the pool not the room) when we first arrived but George (the owner) soon got onto it. We found the barman Paul quite rude at first but once we got to know... More

I rarely book a holiday without checking tripadvisor, how I wish I had before deciding on the Platanes Apartments as everything the previous reviewer had said was true. However after the collapse of XL I was keen to find an alternative trip at short notice. The apartments are at the back of a bar that plays loud music, the pool... More

Where should I begin? On arrival in the early hours of the morning there was no one to meet us and we had to fumbling in the dark to find our room and then trying to get electricity to work. The apartments are next to BP garage with the fumes from the pumps. The reception/bar area is scruffy, seat covers... More
