Didn't stay here but it was recommended as a good place for a late drink. IT IS !! Had possibly one of the best Margaritas - ever. The bar was full but NOT noisy. A great place to chill and enjoy a drink (or two) in a nice location

I booked this hotel for 2 nights after checking many positive reviews, and actually wanted to stay longer at the end! We lost direction to get to the hotel by car from Highway as there was no clear sign of "Platanias", but managed to find it. All staff were very friendly, and the room was unbelievably spacious.

Service at this hotel was excellent. It is a family run business and they obviously worked hard. Accommodation's were basic but comfortable and clean. Pool area was nice. Restaurant and Bar were good although we liked to try a new place evey night. Crete wasn't really for us so we won't be returning, but the staff at Axos really were... More
