Another 'great food' option in the wonderful Plakias but this comes with a twist if you are bird watcher......duringour visit we watched the cormorants on the rocks in the bay and two beautiful kingfishers hunting on the rocks closer to the Taverna. Great at sunset...lovely sound of the sea and the bay.

After two weeks of sampling the tavernas in plakias we found GIO-MA to be the best. The food was excellent it was really fresh and beautifully cooked and presented. The situation and the view must be the best on the island and the staff were very attentive and took the time to explain the meals. As a result we hah... More

The room was wonderful, with renovated furniture of very good quality. The bathroom was excellent, very modern and very clean. The view from the room was the best in Plakias! The rooms were clean, tidy, while the price was very reasonable.

Basic rooms. So basic that the door to our room didn't quite fit and rattled all night. The rooms above us were noisy too the slightest noise amplified by the room design. Take earplugs. Not sure whether the rooms were supposed to be cleaned daily, randomly, or every other day. There are better options in Plakias.

This review concerns the rooms, not the apartments for Gio Ma. We arrived late in the afternoon in Plakias and had noted that this accommodation provider was listed in Lonely Planet, we figured we could get a decent room at a decent price. Wrong! The room we were offered and accepted was above the restaurant, on the sea front. Our... More

Four of us ate here, having read the reviews on Tripadvisor. We ordered a plate of appetizers which was delicious but enormous. The mains were pasticchio, rabbit stifado, chicken and grilled prawns with garlic and chilli, which were all wonderful. Needless to say we were delighted with the food and would definitely go back if in the area. Service was... More

When we informed our friends that we will spend our vacations in Plakias, they insisted to book Gio-Ma for our accommodation. And they were right!!!! Amazing, genuine Cretan hospitality by Mrs Anna, spacious rooms cleaned on a daily basis, fully equipped kitchenette, wifi services and an amazing view from our balcony overlooking Plakias bay!!! Gio-Ma is a real gem and... More
