400 metres from the village of Plakias and within 25 metres of the shore, The Horizon is comfortable, quiet and a joy in which to stay. The rooms all face the sea and have balconies from which to enjoy the spectacular views of both ends of the delightful bay. Food wise they do only breakfast but thwy are so close... More

The location is great. It is not more than 5 min walking to the center. The view is amazing and, what is more important, they have excellent breakfast! Stayed there for one month, and experienced NO problem at all. If we come back, we will definitively consider staying there again.

We stayed in the Thalassa Apartments in Louisa Apartment. It was a spacious two bedroom with a large fabulous deck with amazing views. The owners we gruff and unaccommodating. When I checked in, the owner immediately told me that I was getting a good deal and had been upgraded because of a double booking. I knew this already as I... More

As other reviewers have noted Horizon Beach is clean, very modern with decent sized rooms, nice views from the balcony (some rooms have a huge terrace). The hotel is family owned and a personal touch is apparent. the location is good too - as it is an easy walk to town and a beach is just across the street -... More

We had a nice experience in this place. Although, in the beginning, they did not understand that we are a gay couple, we got a very nice room. The hotel is nicely apart of the „big town“, close enough but quiet for sleeping. Very nice breakfast. Nice beach just in front. We really recommend.

I don't know official classification, but I don´t know, why hotel has only 2 stars. It was really great and the view from our balcony... unforgettable, nice room, rich breakfest. Hotel was quiet, close to the fun area by walk (max. 10 min). Wonderful beaches everywhere, sure ideal with a car. Thanks for our lovely Plakias´memories.

My wife, two kids (ages 10 and 12), and I just returned from an amazing vacation to Crete. Our stay at this hotel added to the wonderful time we had. We prefer to stay in quiet areas, away from the bustling resorts, but within reasonable travel distances to sightseeing and adventure areas. Plakias, Greece and the Horizon Beach Hotel fit... More
