We just spent 4 nights at the apartments which belong to the hotel. It had a view of the sea, great bathroom, big balcony and fantastic wifi. The beds were very hard but the place is great value nonetheless. Highlight: the staff were wonderful - great advice about secret beaches etc.

My husband and I stayed here for a part of our honeymoon! The staff, from the receptionist, servers, chefs, maids and family members were wonderful. Specially the receptionists they were so eager to help us with almost everything; luggage to our room, what do do in the area and other locations, even suggested listening to live performance by some local...

A really nice and friendly hotel with nice food. But the room quality varies Majorly from room to room, ask for a better room, if you do not like the one you got. Otherwise nothing to complain about. A really nice hotel.

Great place on the corner across from the beach. Rooms were ok, nothing special but clean and useful. You get to use the pool at the Garden hotel next door which is great. The thing that sets this hotel apart from others we have stayed at is the front desk service. Can't say enough about Daphne at the front desk,... More

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
