Though I am used to inform a lot before booking a holiday, this small and so well looked after hotel exceeded my expectations. The taste of the family who ownes the hotel shows in every detail : from the patio and its beautiful tropical plants, to the dining near the charming azure blue pool , the gardens with their abundance of plants and flowers, even the design of the lights in the dining room, everything gives a feeling of peace and refinement.
I was offered the choice of room and allowed to even visit them before making a decision : this is some kind of a service!The first one had sea and pool view, small but well arranged with a flat screen TV and a lovely balcony.Only the bathroom was really tiny. The second one was overlooking the patio,litterally "in the trees"...Because of that special atmosphere, clients feel gifted enough to take the bother to dress for diner and behave nicely. Breakfast offers all the variety possible, the staff is extremly efficient.
Diner is a special moment, the chef showing real creative and generous.The barman is an artist and the owners would even come to you as to make sure you are all right.Not to forget a real Internet corner with free access and plenty of...working... computers.Plakias is a great place but can be quite windy at times.Forget that long boring beach and head to the coves in the direction of Souda. Lots of fantastic tavernas, especially Gio-Ma, on the water .All together a wonderful holiday...
