“great beach holiday”
Reviewed July 23, 2012

This apartment block is at one end of the strip at Plakias on the south of the Island of Crete. It has it's own taverna downstairs - and is 30 meters from the beach. The rooms are basic, and for a two star hotel really fine. There is air-conditioning included in the price, and the rooms are cleaned every day.
I really liked the vibe here, very laid-back, so easy to get to the beach, and there is a cafe as well, super for anyone wanting to totally chill.
This part of Crete is subject to strong winds, the first 3 days of our week there were windy but didn't keep us off the beach - the remaining four were beautiful, hot and very relaxing.
I just really liked this place.

Room Tip: we didn't have a sea view, but we had a moon view, so it was fine

When we were the first time in Paligremnos Studios we knew as soon as we arrived we had made the best decision possible. We were received with sympathy and warmth and we knew at once that we would spend there relaxing and most enjoyable holidays. The hotel is situated directly at the beach. The lovely bright studios are very clean, with cooking facilities, fitted out with everything we needed. There are ample spare towels and bedding. From the indivual terraces we had a fabulous view across the sea. The apartments are very quiet. The excellent Greek tavern with its well-kept garden of Paligremnos hotel is frequented by the people at the beach in the daytime, but is very quiet at night. There is easy access at a short walk to Plakias village to public transport, shops, well stocked supermarkets and restaurants. We spent repeatedly most pleasant holidays in the Paligremnos Studios, always delighted with this beautiful location, and we recommend it warmly.

Can not highly recommend this place high enough. As a party of 6 we have come here twice a year for the last 17 years and have already booked to go back again.

Great food, hospitality and excellent service, they make you feel like part of the family, the food is the best greek food i have ever tasted and the thursday night greeks special night is something i look forward to all year to throw my plate!

Do go, you will have the most fantastic time - we always do

We always stay with Georgia at the Paligremnos. Beach view apartments/studios are in the most idyllic of settings. Sun sets are gorgeous. Studios are basic clean and well maintained. Price includes air con - which is a real bonus. Beach less than 2 mins away. Area beach front is flat and makes for easy walking into the town. We just love the whole ambience of Plakias - not overly touristy and the meals wherever one goes are authentic and tasty with always the added touch of an end of meal Raki. The restaurant below the rooms receives daily deliveries of fruit and veg so everything is fresh and tasty. Go and experience this place. You will not regret it!

Room Tip: Ring Georgia - go to the webside

2008 we were first time in Crete. I asked a young lovely lady where to go and she answered "Plakias".... And from the first moment we saw - outside of the village - this smal hotel Paligremnos with its genuine and cozy taverne below - all managed by one big family - we fell in love with this place. Why? Because

The wonderful bay has its end at the hotel by a smal mountain: that means NO traffic.
The hotel has appartments with a smal kitchin to make your own breakfast.
The Tavern below offers wonderful food for reasonable prizes and if you want to walk into the narrow village it´s also not too "touristic".
3km up the mountain you have wonderful view all over the bay and Plakias with excellent restaurants.
The beach has umbrellas and beds to rent also for reasonable prizes.
And the Hotel Paligremnos - managed by the lovely Geargia backing with Maria who keeps the house clean is calm, clean and has also reasonable prizes.
Only to come here private you need a rental car from the airport although you can reach everything here by foot.
I never return to a place normally: But here I am fourth time coming from Vienna (Austria) and that means a lot.

We have stayed in many different apartments and studios in Plakias but the Paligremnos is our long standing favourite. The rooms are simple but spotless, the family owners are friendly, hospitable and always go out of there way to help you with anything. We like the rooms at the front of the taverna which have a fantastic view of the bay, but I think we have stayed in nearly every room and they are all good. The restaurant is also exellent in terms of quality home cooking and value for money, offering a discount for residents. They have a great bazooki night on a Thursday, but it does not last til the early hours, so residents are not disturbed by rowdy crowds. There is plenty of club style nightlife just down the road in the town centre. The beach appeals to naturists and families and there is also a bar on the beach with ample sunbeds for all. My husband and I have been coming here for over ten years and hope to for many more.
