Don't get me wrong, the apartments are nice but they are not stunning. Not for the amount of praise it gets around. The rooms as such are big but not very fancy, the pool is quite small and the beach next to the hotel is nice but nothing compared to some others around. The breakfast though is very very good...

It had a mini market on site and is 100 meters from the resort strip of Platanias. There was a bed room with a double bed and... More

Placed on the beach, on the very best area of Platanias with lovely scenery i was by far dissapointed when i walked into our flat. Although all 3 rooms (living, bed and bath) were big the furnishing is below average, old fashioned and basic. I could also see that rooms weren't clean properly. Duvet cover was veeery dirty and we... More
