We've been at Caretta Beach Hotel from the 2nd of August to the 16th of August and the impression has been immediately positive. Our room - studio apartment- was quite big, comfortable and daily cleaned, with a kitchenette a terrace where we could have breakfast every morning. There was also a restaurant where we ate for three nights. Barbara e... More

If you are looking for a complete quiet and relaxation this is the place for you. Away of any main roads, noise and mass tourism here you can enjoy. The premisses are very clean and well kept and the sea is two steps away. The beach is far from the best on the island but still you can enjoy the... More

We ate at the resort a few times and were very impressed with the delicious food, greek salads, souvlaki and the best beef stifado I have had thus far on our... More

My partner and I stayed at Caretta Beach for 5 days and had a wonderful time. All of the staff, especially Barbara and Thea, were so welcoming and kind. Upon arrival I informed Barbara of my gluten allergy and she was able to accomodate me, adjusting dishes as necessary to make sure I always had a full, happy tummy. She... More

My wife, daughter and I stayed here for two weeks in August and the first thing I would say is that the people working here are the most considerate and genuine people, for whom nothing was too much trouble. Its a very quiet resort, with a hotel quite close by, on either side. But it's a rural beachside setting and... More

We stayed there last summer (we came from Lithuania, the owners organized us a taxi to and from the hotel) and were more then happy about everything, especially location and restaurant food. Owners were just fantastic. It is a really wonderful small family hotel. Barbara cooked every day for our one year baby boy and we enjoyed all the meal.... More

We have been 1 week in this hotel very close to Platanias. The staff is very kind and always for help and suggestions. Rooms are ok. The hotel has direct access to the beach, where you can get 1 umbrella and 2 beds for 2.5 €. Also, the location of the hotel is very convenient since it is easy to... More
