Located in plakis just opposite the beach. We had a standard room (after having a look at the budget room). Plakis is a small place halfway between authentic crete and tourist crete. 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..

Stayed with some friends were made very welcome and would return. Staff superb, nice small pool and right opposite the beach. Great base to explore Prevali Monastery and surrounding villages. Very popular resort for serious walkers.

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

The room rate does not include "extras" - We thought that the intention for breakfast but we found that to get the remote air conditioner is required to pay a 5 day per day!. However, it is important to note that the room rate was relatively low 30 euros a night (although we got the most basic room without a... More

Stayed here yesterday for one night. Excellent price - quality. The cafe is always busy and have some lovely ice creams. The swimming pool was a big plus for it was very windy on the beach. The breakfast was good as well. Will stay here again next year for sure!

Destiny brought us to Lamon hotel after a horrible experience at a neighbouring hotel. Since the first moment I knew that we were going to like it. Rooms are basic but clean and recently redecorated. A big plus is that Lamon hotel is located 10 meters away from the seafront and near supermarkets and other stores. Breakfast is good for... More

We have just returned from our second visit to Plakias and the Lamon Hotel. Since our last visit they have been busy with re-decoration and generally tidying up. This hotel is very basic but clean and reasonably priced. The staff are very friendly. If you are on a budget you can't go far wrong with the Lamon. Breakfast is buffet... More
