“Spacious Apartment”
Reviewed January 6, 2014

We stayed at the Oasis for two weeks. Our apartment, No 1 (at back, no safety deposit box and WIFI is to be paid for) was spacious with long, private balcony, and reasonably quiet, considering this hotel is located between two roads; the front road being busy, noisy, and next to a gas station. The location is outside of the village, a twenty minute walk downhill and therefore not suitable for anyone with walking or respiratory problems. A taxi back from the village is 5 Euro; the Taxi Rank is in the village square. The pool was clean and the gardens were well maintained. The small "taverna" attached can be inviting because of the location of the Oasis, but poor value and the home cooking and was not of the standard which we have enjoyed in over 35 years of visiting Greece. Nor was the hospitality; service was brisk, curt and business like. If your flight is a late night one, be aware there is no hospitality room and you will be expected to be out of your room by midday. Plakias, the surrounding area and coastline are beautiful and all worth visiting and exploring. A part of Crete we are glad we found.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are quieter and enjoy afternoon/evening sun.

Many thanks to Maria & Nikos for such a lovely holiday, in their spotlessly clean hotel. They clearly work very hard to take care of guests' needs and nothing was too much trouble. Beautiful views from our balcony of the White Mountains. Lovely walks into the village, to beaches and into the hills. Good home cooking waiting when we returned. Very good value for money. Lynne & Chris Walsh.

Fantastic hosts offering good food, clean apartments and friendly banter. Our first time in Crete and would definately return. I can see why so many have such high regards of Nikos and Maria. Nothing is too much bother for them to encertain a fantastic holiday for all who stay there. Thankyou. Mark and Wendy Brooks.

We have been visiting Nikos & Maria for the past 9 years and feel like extended family when we visit. Very welcoming and helpful if you want to know a good place of interest/beach to visit. Everything you want to know about local services available: dive centres, boat trips, donkey trekking, car hire and Maria can also recommend a good masseur for afterwards!.The food is of good quality traditional freshly made Cretan and Mediterranean cuisine must try Maria's Shrimp Saganaki or Chicken in the Oven with honey & basil. We can't wait to be back in our family favourite holiday paradise. We have made so many friends in Crete over the years some fellow tourists but many are locals. Yamas & kales diakopes

Very friendly staff but if they can they don't miss the occasion to earn some money on the tourists. My and my partner have got a very small room. There was no place to turn around. Towels and bedclothes are changed only 3 times per week. Very poor breakfast. The hotel is situated outside the city (20 minutes walk distance) between two roads which doesn't make it a quiet place. But there was a kind of family and intimate atmosphere in that small hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms on the north side are quieter and sunnier.

We stayed at Oasis Hotel twice within 3 years. Nikos and Maria are extremely friendly hosts. Great rooms for a family of four, with kitchen facilities. Our kids loved the swimming pool making full use of it. The beach, Damnoni beach, is a 5-10 minute walk from Oasis. Walking to Plakias is ten minute walk. And the the rooms are economically priced. Well recommended.

Oasis is a very nice hotel run by Maria and Nikos. Two very warm and frendly people. They are always there to help you for example to plan a trip.
The rooms are very clean. Tiny but room enough for a hotel room ;-)
We would recommend this hotel to everyone.
