We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights after moving from another hotel. The one bedroomed suite we stayed in 710 was ideal looking over the sea with our 2 daughters aged 11 and 14. The room was spotless and modern and cleaned daily. The hotel is conveniently situated so that you able to walk to restaurants, bars and shops... More

This is a newly refurbished hotel. The apartments are modern and have most of what you need (airconditioned). We had an apartment with one bedroom, living room with kitchenette and bathroom. Ok size for 3 people. Two balconies, one from the bedroom and one from the living room. No big issue, but as it is no dish washer it should... More

A nice and newly renovated hotel on the Beach with all new facilities and a great location to shops and other restaurants. We stayed as the hotel had just reopened and the staff had a very good attitude and made our stay even better. It was slightly expensive though, especially as they charge heavily for using the seperate pool chairs... More

Me and my 9 year old child spent 2 weeks in Santa Helena in Platanias in July 2014. Pool area: There was lack of sun beds and umbrellas by the pool area. Reserving sunbeds was not permitted - in principle - but in practice they all were always reserved at the latest by 9 AM. There were less than 20... More
