4 of 5 stars Reviewed 5 weeks ago

While the rooms are just ok and food is good rather than great, the friendly and well-humoured staff makes this a great place to stay. Also well kept garden details, some positive entertainment and good location adds to a recommendable total impression!

We stayed one week in Ideal Beach with friends. Our room was studio, just normal, nothing special. Not the beautiest one, but good for us, we only slept and took showers in our room. Everything worked, there were fridge, safety box, small tv (which we didn't use), hot water (took a little time to get that). If you want just... More

The hotel is located right next to the beach, and there`s a swimmingpool shared with the hotel just next door. There`s also a bar/restaurant on location. The reception is... More

We spent 6 days at Ideal Beach resorts main building (hotel room). The hotel area is very clean and tidy and is located on the beach. Sadly the rooms at the main building are very noisy. All the noises from the corridor comes through the door. That dont really bother so much at daytime, but at night times its really... More

The hotel is right at the beach, the center of Platanias, shopping and i could go on. Pool area very nice - You have to... More

Very nice green area around the apartments. Our apartment was a bit worn and dull inside, needs refreshment. Had to pay 11 eur extra per night for aircondition. Very hard beds

The hotel has everything that you will ask for, great service, good food and the beach and the pool right in front of you. The "cleaningladies" was extremely good, they did their job perfect and played around with the kids a bit. The hotel had a clown on Wednesdays that our son did appreciate very much and it was for...
