The hotel is superb, and right next to a fabulous sandy beach with a clothes optional section. Although the hotel is not top of the range, it does what it does very well indeed. The food is delicious, and very varied from day to day, and the welcome is genuine and very friendly. The only minor criticism is that there... More

We spent 1 night in this hotel while driving around in Crete. We got a renovated room with a balcony facing the sea for a very good price. The room was clean and spacious and the bathroom even had a massage bathtub. Parking is available. The location is excellent. The staff were very friendly. Best quality of wifi network! Breakfast...

Plakias is unfortunately a long drive from the airport. With other drop offs it took nearly three hours to get there at 3am in the morning. Bear this in mind if taking children. Fortunately I wasn't. It is a great hotel in a lovely friendly resort. Great beaches for surfing and snorkeling etc. Plenty of good eateries and bars to... More

Best hotel I've stayed at in Greece. Wide selection of food for all meals (buffet). Nice surroundings and also many locations of interest within a short driving distance. Also possible to walk to a couple of villages for a lunch with a marvellous view.

The front desk lady that welcomed us was friendly. The room was the last one for 1 night! The air condition was not working and the room was hot. We asked them to fix it, but they couldn't find a technician, so we asked them to place at least a ventilator and get a discount (something that they should propose... More

This was a small friendly hotel with nice staff. The breakfast was very good. The owner really encouraged me to stay there for dinner but I decided to go down the street instead. The room was fine and we could use the pool at the next door hotel if we wanted to but I preferred the ocean. Good experience overall.
