“Holidays saved!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012 via mobile

We have switched to Santa Elena after a rather poor experience in Kissamos. We found the hotel clean, greatly located with a beach and a really huge pool. Rooms are not luxurious but nice and clean with everything you might need (maybe wine opener would be a nice addition). The service is very gentle and outgoing. The restaurant is better than most of the Platanias establishments, with decent food, generous free desserts and likeable staff. Great place for families with kids with a small pool and a playground. Recommended!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2011

Nice hotel in the end of the Platanias next to the lovely beach. Lovely garden and pools, but it was very cold water in both of the pools. Not luxuary apartments, but all that we needed.

Room Tip: Not with balcony next to the noisy road.
