“room with a view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2007

A lovely place to stay, especially if you get a room at the front looking over the sea. Although it is right in the centre of the village it is still peaceful.

The rooms are average size, but to a very high standard. The owners Olga and Manolis take a real pride in their property and it shows.

Have stayed here in 2005 and June 2007. Mrs Olga keeps a very clean establishment.
We were fortunate to get a room at the front with fantastic views over the sea, however the power lines are a little distracting at first.
Rooms have twin beds, common throughout Crete, a small kitchenette, we only made our own breakfast every morning and very clean bathroom. There is also satellite TV however most in Greek except for the odd movie in English.The rooms are serviced every day, and the place is that clean you could eat of the floor.
If you are driving there is a car park at the side, very handy as Plakias gets busy, especially on Sundays when the locals come to swim, eat and drink coffee.
The added bonus of Morpheas is that one of the supermarkets is right underneath, very handy for a cold beer!
Would gladly recommend Morpheas, its not the cheapest in Plakias but it is clean, comfortable and very well located.

We stayed at the morpheas apartments in june 2006 in a family size apartment. This had a mezzanene floor where a child can sleep, which absolutely pleased our boy The apartments are spotless and though we didn't have a direct sea views, our terrace was big ,with side views of the sea and beautiful views of the gorge behind Plakias. Sheets and towels changed daily. We found these apartments by chance and were delighted with the comfort . Manolis and his family are very pleasant and run the supermarket next door, we found their manner very gentle and friendly and would highly recommend these apartments

This is a fantastic small family run place that is really great for couples or families.

The rooms at the front all have amazing views of the sea and harbour. All rooms are quiet, well appointed and comfortable. There is a small kitchenette if you wish to do any cooking. Maid service is daily – they change the towels even if you don’t want them too -- LOL

There are also a number of larger apartments to the rear with views of the mountains

Located only 15 meters (45 feet) from the sea and 200 meters from the harbour it is an ideal place to chill out and enjoy your holiday.

The owners are very friendly, helpful and welcoming.

Room rates are very good and it is worth discussing the rates with them.

Their website is not the best and the photos are poor and do not do justice.

When we read reviews we often wonder what the expectations of the authors are. So, to help you…we are frequent travellers and have been all over the world and stayed in some of the best hotels – our standards and expectations are high. We expect to get what we pay for.

Room rates are very good at 37euro for a double up to 73euro for an apartment that sleeps 4. It is worth discussing the rates with them.
