“EXCELLENT ALL ROUND”
Reviewed June 27, 2010

Basic apartment, but enough for us. Very clean and quiet with superb mountain back-drop. Owners/ staff very good and very friendly. Site supermarket well stocked and priced. Pool and pool area excellent with plenty of loungers. Nicos on the bar (son) is very good and very friendly and can't do enough to help (except extra pillows - see mother!!). We would recommend this hotel to everyone. Only drawback is that it could be a little closer to the beach (10 mins) which is a slog in very the hot weather with which we were blessed. No problems at all.

We travelled as a couple and met our daughter and her husband and two young children there.Had a great time. The staff were great and the rooms were clean but completely inadequate for cooking as we were supposed to be self catering. Only had a frying pan and a funny jug.They are losing out on a lot of money they could be making for snacks. We always like to eat at the facility that we have used during the day ie the swimming pool but omelettes swimming in oil and fully cremated fish fingers that no one should have sent from the kitchen sent us out of the hotel on daily quest for food.
In all a great holiday with good people at the hotel within a fair walk of all facilities, they just need to sort their catering out.

The staff at this hotel are fantastic, they make feel so welcome, nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are adequate in size and cleaned daily. The pool area is very well kept. The hotel location is good, many restaurants within 10mins walk, beach about 15 mins. There was a good atmosphere at the hotel, but adequatly quite for the children late on. I would reccomend this hotel to anyone who wishes to have a good relaxing holiday. The only negative is the showers, they are a bit on the small side.

We stayed at the Plessas Palace for 2 weeks in May 2010. The room was very basic typical greek. Linen and towels changed at least 3 times a week If you are B&B you have to pay extra for a fridge. Safety deposit 15e and aircon 45e per week.( hairdryer in your room.)

The pool and bar /snacks were excellent, plenty of sunbeds. Buffet breakfast 4e good value. The greek family were very welcoming and went out of there way to make sure you had a good holiday. Supermarket on site was good not over priced 6litre pack of water 1.70e.

The Plessas Palace was a good location for restaurants just a short stroll. The beach was about a 10 minute walk good selection of bars restaurants to choice from on the beach. Plenty of lovely walks to do and the scenery is beautiful. There is a good bus service into Zante bus almost stops outside Plessas palace. We hired a small car for 3 days for 60e.

Alykannas is a very laid back resort no night clubs, perfect for a nice peaceful/romantic holiday.

And that's how you should view Plessas Palace.

We booked based on the costs of 10 days and our expectations of PLessas Palace was set by the price of the accommodation. It was so cheap there's no way we would have expected 5 star luxury but for what it is, it is a very good place to stay. It's certainly somewhere we wouldn't mind staying at again if funds were short.

Our use of hotels is nothing more than somewhere to sleep, the rest of the time we're off exploring. We never ate at the hotel, used the bar perhaps twice but the entire experience of Plessas Palace was enjoyable.

If you're on a budget, want a quieter environment rather than in the middle of a town, then Plessas Palace is an ideal, centrally located spot from which to explore the entire island.

Oh! THe local shops are expensive for buying produce but if you've hired a car or motorbike, head off to Zante and near the airport there's a Lidl. Cheap everything good for stocking up on booze, foods etc.

This hotel is ok it's nothing special thou. When we arrived we was taken to our room by pigi the owner/manager seemed like a nice guy. Room was ok was not the cleanest but I have seen worse. We did have a Miskitos nest in our bathroom that we had to sort out ourself but was not really to bothered about that. Cleaners are very loud in the morning and you can here them shouting from other end of building. Drinks at hotel are very expensive. And there is a older lady with glasses who seems to be very selective when she understands english. I.E you can ask her for a spare towl or the quickest way to the beach and she will play dumb. But say you ask to use Internet or pool table ect she knows exacly how much money to ask you for and very quick to tell you your time is up. Me and my partner also noticed that the hotel owners pigi ect were very quick to drop what they were doing to help big tippers and regulars. Even if that ment serving them first even thou there could be 3/4 of younwaiting to be served. As for location thou that was great. Littrally few min walk from everthing. There is a great hotel by the beach that also offers watersports called the valias hotel I would more reccomend staying there. The owners of that hotel George and katarina are the nicest people you could ever meet. But for this hotel i would say is ok. Room size is good. Room veiw is great. Few splated bugs on walls but nothing to bad. Bathroom little small but hey it's greece what do you expect. Also one more thing if you are traveling back to the airport by taxi then I would recomend NOT using pigi hotel taxi service as he is very expencive. Call a private one and this will probably save you about 15 euro. Goodlook

Lovely stay last 2 weeks. very clean hotel,pool area cleaned every morning along with rooms daily.new linen and towels also.Shower small,but adequate.Beds a bit hard tho.Any problems were dealt with straightaway by nicos or denis(even took us into alykes and back-thanks).As for alykanas itself-very nice,except for the constant pestering by touts trying to get you to eat at their restaurant (big minus for me).If you do eat out visit the Romanza and The Apollo.One to avoid being theGrecco(wife and i had upset stomachs). Beware of the mosquitos,they seem to ignore the repellents.If a sports fan visit spikes in alykes,run by an aussie,great atmosphere.Will visit again, especially the beach safe and clean
