Having booked specific rooms, with full sea view, 10 months in advance we were not given them on arrival, we had paid a deposit directly at the hotel and a receipt was given stating room numbers. I spoke to the owner who was very arrogant and expected us to just accept things for what they were. We were offered alternative... More

Booked one night on-line as there was a music night organised to help raise funds for the seafront tavernas who were adversely affected by a fire on May 10. Our 1st floor room had been recently redecorated and was clean, airy and comfortable. Also not expensive. Vicky on reception was very friendly and helpful, and we ended up booking a... More

urrently we returned, two pairs spend a weekend at the hotel in Plakias. Despite the fear was great, because the hotel is two stars, a big surprise was the hotel accommodation throughout. We got two different rooms, the triple room, which turned to the sea, the pool and street, the room was a table with chairs, a double bed-very comfortable,... More

I have found lots better places for the same price in Crete. I would not come there again. Nothing bad to say and nothing good. In Plakias also nothing special. Commercial place with many people......

The hotel was in a great location, on the beach road across from the beach with it's own taverna and sea front pool. The lady on reception Vicky could not have... More

For the last few years We have been going to Plakias every summer and we always stay at this lovely hotel. The rooms are nice and clean, the staff are very helpful and friendly. The hotel is right by the beach, with excellent central location by the shops and restaurants.

The hotel is on the sea front road like most of the hotels and restaurants of a certain age. Car parking was no problem and we were lucky to find a spot opposite the hotel entrance; although as the pebbly beach at this spot is only about 20 feet wide I had visions of waking in the morning to find...

I was travelling with my 17-year old daugther, and the staff , all males, only had one thing on their mind, and this was to get to know her intimately. This is not the sort of behaviour I expect from a the staff of a hotel, especially if they are more than twice her age. So - if you are... More
