The location at the Eastern edge of town, and one block removed from the water, provided an excellent location for relaxation. The hotel has an abundance of amenities for your entire party's desires. There are games, play areas, computers, and the like for children. The staff definitely went out of their way to see that our desires were met. Constant,... More

We have stayed in Plakias 4 times, the last ocassion staying at the Alianthus Gardens and, should we return, it will definitely be to this hotel. We stayed half board in Sept 2015 and, on arrival, were delighted to be offered an apartment rather than the double we had booked. I found this the most comfortable place we've stayed at... More

I had a trip round Crete in June 2015 with my daughter. Alianthos Garden was the best hotel we stayed. Fantastic view to the sea and to the mountains, the beach on the other side of the road. The hotel was very clean, the interior was beautiful and comfortable. The food was excellent and the staff was friendly and helpful.... More

We had been travelling round Crete for 3 weeks to try to visit lots of different areas. The South of Crete has lots of excellent walking so we chose Plakias as our base. We choose a garden view room and the room we were allocated was at the back of the hotel with no sun but this did not really... More

We have been staying at the Alianthos Gardens for many years and the experience improves every year. The hotel is spotlessly clean, the staff are friendly and very helpful. Lovely pools including one for small children with a small play area too. And the beach is only 2 minutes walk away. This year the food was even better with much... More

We had a super time. The hotel was fantastic, the staff were so friendly and the food was wonderful. A week just wasn't long enough and we can't wait to go back! The hotel was next to the beach and there was a handy local bus and boat trips every day to the wonderful Palm Beach.

Alianthos Garden is a beautiful hotel with nice staff. The food was delicious. Rooms are small but clean and modern. Pool is small but beach is just acroos a street. Plakias is lovely village with clean water and sand.

In the beautiful bay of Plakias, this hotel offers everything you need. Good rest, nice pool area, top breakfast buffet (delicious and plentiful) and last but not least, a very nice staff: efficient and friendly to the right point (you never they're overdoing it), most of all the waiter-manager who made us feel warmly welcomed.
