We stayed at the Axos last year and had a wonderful family holiday, the staff were absolutely fantastic nothing was a bother. The family run business is right in the centre of Plantanias and a 2-3 minute work to the beach. The hotel provided a traditional Greek breakfast which we thought was lovely and we would sit int he onstreet bar watching life go by for far to long. the road outside the hotel is busy, but i think all Greek roads are and it was never a problem. the rooms were really modern design and spotless and had a fridge, hob, kettle, etc.
The hotel is on direct bus routes to all the main attractions, we had a hire car for the 2 weeks but rarely used it. The local restaurants are so close and these come to life in the evening (but don't worry no nightclubs or rowdy scene in this resort. We could have eaten in every restaurant but 2 weeks was'nt enough and besides each one had such charm and the Greek food was perfect, they all supplied fruit, cake and ouzo or Raki to wash the meal done at no extra charge.
Sometimes the beach can get windy, but thats what the pools for and you can generally get a sunbed. But wonder done to the beach in the evening and watch the sunset never once feeling worried.
Would we go back? Yes like a shot 100%.
