5 of us - 2 adults 3 children (19,17 and 15 yo) spent 1 week here. Staff were incredibly welcoming and friendly. The hotel was modern and very well maintained, rooms clean and functional, bar friendly, pool fabulous and not the usual fight for loungers in the morning.Free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel. Food menu changed every night and became the... More

Our 6th time in Plakias and 4th time in Alianthos Garden. Each time we visit we feel as if we have come home! Staff so friendly and welcoming. Beds are more comfy than the one at home (Co Co Mat). 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

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
