This family run family hotel, is one of the greatest hotels ive been to in my life. The staff and owners of the hotel, is so open and welcoming. Its a quiet place for relaxing and not far from the nearest restaurant, nor the city center. The pool is not that big, but its really clean and is heated. Would... More

We stayed on the villa second time and enjoyed every moment. On the pool there was fantastic view over the platanias area, especially the sunsets were spectacular. Villa was very peaceful and comfortable. It was still very close to the centre and hill restaurants. Thumbs up for the owners, Silvia and George you were so helpful and very friendly !

The hotel situated spot on in Platanias close to the old town and the best restaurants. Quiet and relaxing surroundings and close to nice walking trails.Hotel itself is clean and well managed with a nice pool with creat view over town. The management has a personal friendly approch so you feel like home. We recommend it with pleasure.

The room (single room) is spacious with two beds, and an extra bed, a small kitchen with the necessary stuff. The view is spectacular and the pool is very nice. The owners are really helpful - for instance we mentioned that we like football and they got us tickets to see Platanias FC vs Olympiakos, the last game of the... More

Having read a lot of good reviews of this hotel, it turned out to be bit of a disappointment . Our apartment was rather spacious, with two balconies, but very simple furnished, and the bathroom was tiny, flooding the floor every time we took a shower. Both balconies were overlooking and very close to the neighbouring balconies, so not a... More

Friendly greeting from the owner as we arrived which made us feel welcome. Rooms were basic but the whole place was very clean and we had fresh towels and linen daily. Very modern pool and bar/reception area were great. Snacks served were first class. The apartments themselves are halfway between the old village and the main resort. We preferred the... More

The hotel is really nice. The standard isn't to modern, but it's really clean and the pool is great. The location is perfect. It's really close to both beach and center of the town, but still a little bit away from it all, in the hillside between the old city and the center. Really calm area. But the best thing... More
