I visited the resort with my family this month, The rooms were nice, comfortable and the room service always pleasant. The cleaning staff always made sure to tidy up and clean to a very high standard. This I really appreciated. The resort has a variety of daily activities, including yoga, pilates, water sports, ping pong matches etc. Alexander from the animation team especially was so sweet and open to talk to, I enjoyed our interactions. The beach is steps away and the water nice and clear. The hotel gym was simple with enough equipment for getting in a daily workout, though could use a little improvement for some of the machines. I too enjoyed nice walks/runs along the beach. The buffet was heavily international influenced, where I'd have preferred more traditional Greek cuisine. All in all a relaxing week well spend

Stayed at the hotel last week. It's a large resort style hotel located across from a small beach. Rooms were modestly furnished but absolutely spotless. Indeed, I noticed the cleaner thoroughly cleaning the windows in my room, which was a first. Stayed half board and food was very good, with a good variety of cuisine on offer. Breakfast was excellent too and staff were very efficient, incredibly friendly and very happy to help. The hotel was full, so access to sunbeds was a problem on some days and pools were busy too. Not a 5 star hotel in terms of look and feel but staff were great. Good for families as well.

I first stayed at Porto Platanias for one week. Then is became two weeks. Then it became three weeks … ! Whilst the building and facilities are excellent, it is the people who really make Porto Platanias so delightful - the Reception and Guest Relations team, the Hermes bar manager; the restaurant staff. Always so welcoming (I get hugged to death on my arrival!), and always ready to help, no matter how busy they may be. I love them all! I'll be back next year! Ron Linton

We visited Porto Platanias hotel earlier this month. Very nice rooms with big balconies and bathrooms with marble. It was great with five different pools to choose from. The staff were friendly. You could ask for help at the reception and they helped you. In the diningroom they were also friendly and helpful. We loved the food & drinks at the poolbar! Great thanks to all the young people at the ”Animation team” who were irreplaceable! What would we have done without Nedimira and her friends at the minidisco?! They were just perfect with the children and all the children loved them! Minidisco was the highpoint of the nights for my daughter! We loved Porto Platanias hotel and we are looking forward to visit you again!

Our first visit to Porto Platanias Beach Resort and Spa was before our son was born and now we came back with a 3 year old. As returning guests, we were given a spa voucher and a bottle of wine, which was a nice touch. In general, we've had a great time, we absolutely love Crete and will be back for sure. The location is great, beachfront, with all the shops, restaurants etc nearby. We got a very nice room (511) with a partial sea view. No noise there, a kitchenette, both important when you're travelling with a child. We were all inclusive and the food was tasty, however the choice was a bit limited. I think what really makes this hotel great is the staff. Special thank you goes to Anastasia at the reception, she's a real star. So helpful and always with a smile on her face. She made our stay lovely. The restaurant staff was also great. We had our favourite corner from the previous stay and they always did their best to sit us there. They were all very nice, too. There's a small playground for children and a small pool next to it. Good if you have a toddler that can't sit still for five seconds. Can't really comment on drinks, but the red wine was good. The whole hotel is clean, including the rooms. Having said that, there is some room for improvements, the most important the wifi. Literally, we couldn't use it almost at all. It was so bad that we had to switch it off and use our own data. Like other people mentioned, there were times when we had to ask for our coffee three times in the morning before being served. We could see that the staff were trying their best, maybe it was because breakfasts got really busy at times. You can get snacks during the day in the bar near the pool. Some ice cream, fruits and pastries, together with drinks. However, in the evening you can only get the drinks from there. The snacks and the ice cream are reserved for late arrivals. Now, try to explain to a 3 year old that there's no ice cream for him, even though he had some earlier. I guess it's something we wouldn't even notice if it wasn't for our son. Altogether, we had a wonderful time. We enjoyed our stay very much. Crete is the most beautiful island. Renting a car is a must, there are so many places worth visiting. We've already been to Crete three times and next year won't be any different. I can't imagine a better place for us to stay then Porto Platanias Beach Resort. It felt good to be back and we'll see you again next year!

Dear katherina123 , First of all, we would like to thank you for honoring us with your continuous visit in our hotel to spend your vacations and for your excellent review in Trip Advisor! We are very happy that we have managed to satisfy most of your expectations and more specifically our staff attitude and service,restaurant , our central location, the room cleanliness and facilities! However,we would like to apologize for the disappointments that you encountered regarding the Wi fi during your stay with us. This problem probably occurred because many people use the Internet at the same time which does not affect the signal but the speed. We are sorry for this inconvenience and we will check about this issue thoroughly with our It team. Moreover, on behalf of our management we would like also to apologize for not meeting your expectations in regards to the food variety and the all inclusive program Nevertheless , we would like to demonstrate that even though our sweet corner for AI is until 17:00 there is always our mini market which is until 20:00 with a variety of drinks, snacks, ice creams and local products for both adults and kids. We are endeavor to go above and beyond to ensure our guests have a memorable experience. Its not surprise that Anastasia took such wonderful care of you and made you feel so valued. She is important member of our team! Once more, we would like to thank you for your beautiful feedback and we are already looking forward to accommodate you again soon in our Resort and in our beautiful island! Our warm Regards Grammatopoulou Alexia Public Relations Porto Platanias hotels & resorts
