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

Pros: The pool here was really good, but few chairs so if it's busy May be hard to stay. Location is great, beach and town are very close. Lovely guy at the front desk. Price. Cons: weird red bed-cover, electricity turns off when key is removed, loud clientele (we had someone try to open our door at about midnight with... More

You can find a range of English speaking restaurants and bars in addition to the excellent hotel bar. It has a small pool is very clean good buffet... More

We stayed only one night in this hotel on a 5 day trip around Crete (which by the way is not long enough in beautiful Crete). We paid only 34 euro & couldn't believe the quality for the price. The hotel is right across from the beach with a restaurant overlooking the beach. The rooms were excellent quality, comfortable bed,... More

The Lamon Hotel is being updated and was probably the best hotel in Plakias a while back, so this year we gave it a go and found it spacious, clean and with very helpful staff and the room rate was very good value. The room overlooked the sea and was very comfortable..

We stayed here for 14 days and we absolutely loved it! It's a quite less touristy area but with all the amenities of a big tourist area. Plenty of shops, restaurants, activities, and the beach it literally right out the front door. Sunsets are spectacular and the pool is a nice size as is the restaurant. The food at the... More
