We were taken good care of, the room was super and clean, and the location perfect. Our vacation this year is already booked, and we are going to stay at Sophia again. really... More

We stayed at Sofia Beach in mid August and thoroughly enjoyed it. The hotel and it's rooms are immaculately clean and the bedding and towels were changed daily. The resort is mostly populated by scandanavians which seems to give it a bit more class. The local restaurants were excellent with a really good atmosphere. We would particularly recommend Mylos Water... More

Just returned from Sophia Beach a couple of weeks ago and I have got to say it is in a perfect location right on the beach. We stayed there for two weeks in a two bedroom apartment that sleeps six but there were only four of us. The apartment itself was pretty big, clean as the maid comes every day... More

Just returned from a week in Platanias, and had a great time. The rooms in the sophia beach apartments were basic, but clean. I would advise anyone going there to put money aside for air conditioning though, as it gets very hot during the nights; this costs 45 euros a week. Outsice the apartments is a long path that leads... More

We came back from Sophia Beach last night after spending 2 weeks there. Nice resort and clean studios. We were pleased because we had a studio on the upper floor. We paid for the 2 weeks air conditioning because the temperature was very hot and we did need it. The price was in fact cheaper than we paidy last year... More

We used this site ourselves before booking and got exactly what we were looking for... It was a week of total relaxation in family run hotel which backs onto the beach as you can see from the photos posted. We were made to feel so welcome by everyone. Platania has lots of local restaurants and bars if you want to... More
