We stayed at Alianthos Garden one night in September. The location and the architecture of the building are very beautiful. We received a very warm welcome by the staff who have all been very kind and helpful. We had a side-view room, which was not very large, but clean and with comfortable beds. The sea-view room that we were also... More

Alianthos Garden in Plakias is the best hotel we experienced in many years. Staff is extremely friendly and helpfull; food is very good and changes every day; the property is build in a very nice and surprising way; very clean and also really close to the beach. In fact I could not think of any negative points. I would recommend... More

We just stayed here on our honeymoon. There was nothing overwhelmingly terrible about this place, but plenty of things worth warning others about. When we checked in, the receptionist insisted on holding our passports until we left. When we told her we were not comfortable with that arrangement, we had to have a 5-minute conversation about whether or not our... More

This was our fourth visit and one thing that has changed this year is the restaurant - there is now a new cooking station where meat is cooked in the evening and eggs/pancakes at breakfast. The selection and quality of food has improved - in particular we enjoyed the barbecue evening.

Charming hotel in Plakias, with good service and quality rooms. 80% german travelers, mostly families, more French speaking would have been appreciated (we are French). The pool is nice but sometimes not enough sunbeds.

Food menu changed every night and became the... More

Cleaner than clean throughout. Food superb. This was our 1st time on Half board. A great optional extra. BBQ on... More

Quiet time of year, October, and not too hot for us elderly types. Staff with a sense of humour, and a generally easy but efficient style. We preferred to enjoy the local tavernas, so we cannot comment on the food other than the excellent variety and quality of the breakfast buffet. The computers available was a nice touch although they... More

We stayed here on the recommendation of friends and were not disappointed. Apart from an initial problem with the AC, which was quickly rectified, we had a relaxing and enjoyable stay. We stayed in the main hotel, with an excellent sea view, I do think you need to check before you book as some room views were not as good.... More
