Hotel was quiet nice, very small pool area. Food seemed to be nice but a shame not really any traditional greek meals on offer. Hotel was full of Germans, who seemed to take priority. TV channels basically all in German, only 2 channels were English and that was a random news channel or an Asian culture channel. Rooms were standard, nothing special but not awful. The door to open the room was like a reubix cube trying to get in, not sure if it was just our room but it was very annoying. Staff were ok. Overall felt out of place being English but the hotel is standard, shame about the size of the pool area and types of meals. They were good with covid rules though, you had to wear gloves and masks when getting food from the buffett. Hand sanitiser on all tables. And very airy with windows and doors open to circulate air. The area is quiet nice, typical strip of shops and resturants. Beach is nice. Took a bus ride to rethymno old town, was nice and worth a visit. Only cost €3.60 for return ticket which you can buy in shop opposit. Over all it was a nice holiday, just a shame to feel out of place in the hotel.

Dear guests, Thank you for reviewing our hotel. I am though obliged to comment on some of your review points. Priority in a specific nationality in Nefeli Hotel is out of the question. I am really sorry that you felt this way but it is totally inaccurate. English speaking guests have 4 english speaking channels and not 2 "random" ones in the room TVs. Our rooms are really beautifully decorated and they have the standard size of a 4 star hotel. Actually, every year, we are redecorating parts of the hotel even if sometimes they do not need to be redecorated. But, having many many repeaters from several countries, it is nice that they see always something new when they visit us. The room doors are totally new and I cannot understand why it was so difficult for you. Maybe you are not used to electronic locks. Our staff is really trying to make all guests feel like home and it seems that we are doing a good job according to the comments from our guests. Moreover, I am proud of our cousine-gastronomy as we are mostly using local ingredients and we offer our guests original cretan and greek cousine. You have to keep in mind that greek gastronomy is not only moussaka and gyros. Concering the use of the word "shame" about the pool and the meals, I do not wish to comment on it. I leave it for my other guests. Thank you very much

We recently spent two weeks at this hotel and were very happy with all aspects. Yes, the majority of the guests seemed to be German but we were not made to feel second-rate at all. The staff on reception were very helpful with any queries we had. The dining room staff, too, were lovely and friendly. We were certainly impressed with the meals and the range of food available at the buffet both for breakfast and for the evening meal. Our room was spacious and comfortable.

Firstly they tried to "upgrade" us to a slummy apartment-we were dragging our suitcases from one room to another. The room was horrible, old and only a downgrade from what we had paid. They only cater for german guests- not one channel in english or greek to watch- thought its ok, we have wifi- another failure -didnt work in the rooms at all, so once in your room nothing to do. The staff were rude and obnoxious lying through their teeth. Wanted to leave and they wanted a cancellation fee- I said you are not catering to our needs and feel unwelcome. they took so long to reply that there was nowhere else to stay and we were stuck there. We git sick from air conditioning too. We came to platanes for sentimental reasons being my dads hometown but this hotel left a very bitter taste. I would not recommend it to anyone. They are liars and cheats trying to swindle people. To top it off you can only change pool towels every 2 days after paying a deposit for them. Room does not get serviced on sundays as they do not want to pay staff penalty rates. Thisis not even 2 star service!

Very good hotel near the beach. New renovation rooms, well furnished and clean. The food was amazing - we had breakfast and dinner. There is a lot of parking space behind the hotel. The animation is good. There is a supermarket next to the hotel if you need something to buy.
