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

All kept very clean, staff very friendly and always a personal word, every evening buffet (you have to like that) but surroundings and taste of the food are excellent, great wines ! Would definately stay here again

We stayed at a block near the main hotel, so things were pretty quiet as we wanted for a couple of days to relax! Food was great, so was the breakfast. Pool times were short but I guess that's everywhere now. Only thing we didn't like that much was that the bikes were old school, something that means that no... More

We stayed here in August 2013 for the third time. We had one night in a room in a block separate from the main hotel and with no view. We were then moved to the main block overlooking the pool and sea. This was a good room; we did have problems with the air conditioning but this was sorted. We... More

Just returned from Plakias, this hotel exceeded all my expectations of any Greek standards of workmanship, previously experienced. Everything was finished beautifully , all the plumbing worked, they even have a filtered drinking water system. The decor and grounds were stunning with some beautiful artwork throughout. The staff were all fluent in many languages, and very helpful and knowledgeable, readily... More

Officially a 4 star (which means little) but friendly staff, clean comfy rooms with excellent Coco-mat beds, air conditioning. Very nice pool and just 50m to beach. Breakfast buffet was fine with range of cold continental breakfast plus eggs and sometimes bacon. Coffee was poor - never mind! The hotel is used by predominately German travel companies. Bar prices are... More

We booked for 4 nights but extended it to 7. Hard to fault really. The service is friendly. The rooms comfortable with shower and refridgerator. The buffet breakfast is fine, the buffet dinners adequate and definately good value. At this price you are not paying for a large room and gourmet food. We were helped with walking itineries, and twice... More

My husband was working in Istanbul and then Munich for 3 weeks, and we had one week to spend together, just vacationing, with our 4 year old daughter. We chose the island of Crete, and also Plakias because we wanted to 'get away from it all.' We found Alianthos Garden on trip advisor. What a wonderful stay we had! The... More

My wife and I arrived to Alianthos Garden on Sunday Sept 2nd just after midday. It was about a 90 minute drive from Chania Int'l Airport (CHQ). We were amazed with the property as we were driving up the main road. Beautiful beaches, quiet and peaceful surroundings. We checked in promptly and were given a room, not exactly the view... More
