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

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
