Facing the Libyan Ocean on the south side of Crete, we have discovered a little paradise called Plakias and Plakias Bay Hotel. Just back in Scandinavia after our sixth stay at the hotel over the past 10 years, we have again experienced all the tranquillity and hospitality we could hope for. Due to a late fight into Chania, we arrived... More

We (2 adults and one 2-year old daughter) were at Plakias Bay hotel the last week of May 2013. The hotel and rooms are good quality for the price (low season prices). Room with enough space, good mattresses, good bathroom and nice balcony. Breakfast is ok, nothing special but different choices. We had lunch a couple of time and fish... More

Came back yesterday after a wonderful week in Plakias. Plakias Bay hotel has the best location in Plakias, at the south end of the bay, with wonderful views of the bay and the town of Plakias itself. A bit of a walk to the center of Plakias (20 minutes?), but the beach is only one minute away. Four out of... More

Things seem to have changed from the experiences of many reviews posted here. Perhaps things have changed at the Plakias bay Hotel. We found the owner, no sign of his wife, very unfriendly, no welcome on arrival and no thanks upon leaving after ten days, don't even know his name. His sons were helpful but not pro-active. Room very basic,... More

The hotel is at the southern end of the Plakias beach and is very quiet. Nudists use this end of the beach but not early in the year. We stayed at the Plakias Bay Hotel between 17th - 24th April (2012). We were part of a group of 16 on a flower and bird watching holiday. Our primary need was... More

Clean and reasonably friendly, in a good position near to the beach. No shower surround (remove loo roll before showering), no basin plug, poor storage facilities, no mats on stone floor in bedroom, uncomfortable bed, no hot water in morning (only tepid). Choose only if you like things basic.

Plakias Bay Hotel: I surely cannot say that the rooms are fantastic but good enough for a couple of days. Expecially if you spend most of the time out! The owner is very friendly and the position is very good with a fantastic view on the gulf. The village is not so far, and easily reachable with a 10 min... More

We went to Rethymnon to a friend's wedding and then spent two nights here to get away from it all. The hotel is situated very near the sea, 10 minute walk from the main town of Plakias where there are lots of restaurants. Low key town - no discos, just families enjoying the view. The hotel doesn't have much in... More
