I booked this hotel for 2 nights after checking many positive reviews, and actually wanted to stay longer at the end!
We lost direction to get to the hotel by car from Highway as there was no clear sign of "Platanias", but managed to find it. All staff were very friendly, and the room was unbelievably spacious. The bed room was separate room from Kitchen/Living room, and it had very spacious balcony. Our rooms were spotlessly clean, and beds were very comfortable.
Our stay was B&B basis, and breakfast was more than enough. There were variety of choices from cold and hot meals with some Greek spcialities.
There were plenty of restaurants and shops around the hotel, and you can buy soap/shampoo from them (only hand soap was provided in the room).
If you are noise-sensitive person, we suggest you to book a room away from Hotel bar/neighboring bars.
Only one negative point was that no wifi was available in room (available only bar/reception area as is mentioned in their website).
Overall, it was one of the best three star hotels in my life.
