OK room - but VERY cold, even it was 28 celcius degrees outside. We had to use the aircon as heater. Almost no sun on the balcony - just aprox. half an hour late afternoon. Our view from our room was a view to a container. The dining table was a low coffe table, where there was no room for... More

We were lucky with the weather, only 1 cloudy day, 1 day the temperature reached 36. Sofia apartments are a friendly place to stay. The apartments are set close to the beach and you are on the edge of town but they are very peaceful and there were no nights of disturbed sleep. You can eat at the Sofia which... More

Just having the holiday blues come down from a fantastic stay at Sofia Beach in Plantanias... The location of Sofia Beach was amazing, a few steps away from the pool and you are on the beach, which was lovely, a few steps away from the front reception and you are on the main restaurant road with lots of shops and...

The hotel is in a fabulous location, one minute of a pleasant walk through the floral garden to the lovely beach. The rooms are basic, and are somewhat comfortable - i.e. well equiped with kitchen utensils, chairs, table and wardrobe. But the beds and sofa bed are awful and were very difficult to sleep on. The room had a horrible... More

Had a lovely week at Sofia Beach Apartments in Platanias. Was a bit concerned before we went that the resort would be too busy, but it turned out to be lovely. Very family orientated, lots to do and plenty to see., If you want to get away from the noise and bustle in the evenings (the road does get very... More

We stayed for one week, after being referred this location by friends, and it was perfect. The studios were basic but clean and when we needed anything extra (i.e. toilet roll) it was with us within a minute! Sofia and Victor are lovely and very welcoming. Unfortunately I was very ill at the end of our holiday and Victor called... More

I have just returned from a week at these apartments and was not dissappointed. From the moment we arrived, how about this, you've just spent 4 hrs on a plane and then on a coach. So the last thing you want to do is queue at a reception, Not here, Sophia took us all to our apartments (ours was upstairs)... More

Great place to stay, all the staff are fantastic with Victor the barman the ace in the pack. His English isn't the best but he's such a funny guy and will do anything to help. The apartments are basic and could do with a bit of a refurb but they are clean and have a fridge and a cooker if... More

platanias is busy with lots to do - fantastic weather but the best beaches are at agia marina 5 minutes along the coast. Sofia shares the pool with Ideal Apartments next door, all scandinavian. They steal all the sun loungers - even at 6 AM you'd be lucky to find a free one, I kid you not! Complained but nothing... More
