Wow ! what a wonderful place to stay ! Maria & Manolis are wonderful ! We were dubious of the transfer time (took us 2 hours and 45 minutes on the big transfer coach with Olympic,( but we did have many drop off points along the way)) we'd already had a long day, and were glad to reach Irida at...

I have just returned from staying here for 2 weeks. Fantastic is a word that will sum up my stay, also peaceful & beautiful. The apartment's are kept impeccably clean, bedding & towels changed every other day. Everyone was very friendly. I would definitely recommend these apartments to anyone & everyone.....well done.

I have just returned from my second wonderful holiday at the Irida Studios, run by Manolis & Maria, booked via Olympic Holidays. From start to finish, it was faultless. I will definitely be returning in 2015.

Freshly decorated, well maintained. Any problems swiftly dealt with. 10 minutes from centre, 5 from beach and big supermarket. Very comfortable beds. Nice swimming pool. Room a little on small side and usual Greek studio rock hard towels. But recommended. Will return!

I would like to begin by saying that our weeks stay at the Irida Studios was the tonic we needed away from our busy and hectic lives. This little haven is positioned on the road side 5 mins from the town, nestled in olive trees. Our hosts offered a personal touch and made us feel welcome. We took advantage of... More

Stayed here for one week only. The owners are lovely people and make you very welcome. Lovely peaceful pool area, usually only about 6 people round the pool. Rooms are a bit small but they are very clean, the beds most comfortable that I have ever slept on, I think they had Tempur matresses. Nice powerful shower with a very... More

I think we stayed here at the same time as blowinfree, and I agree with the vast majority of what they said. The no-frill rooms are extremely clean, and the beds very comfortable, it's a good base for exploring this part of the island. It was perfect for our requirements.We had 2 apartments for my husband and myself and our... More

Having just returned from week in Plakias, staying at the Irida Apartments, I can only echo the fulsome praise and glowing compliments from the other reviewers regarding the Irida. The rooms are small, but comfortable, with a wet-room style shower room / WC and decent kitchen facilities. What really makes the Irida special, however, are the little touches -- the... More

Stayed her for a week in August. The fellow guests very quiet decent sorts of people. No music around the pool.How refreshing! The rooms are small,basic and well maintained. Cleaned well every day. Great location. Nearest shops and restaurants are minutes away down the road. Plakias itself is nice enough. Its starting to fray at the edges with new apartments... More
