“A very happy stay”
Reviewed October 16, 2011

We stayed for only 6 nights during a 3 week tour of central Crete but will return for a longer stay next time. Our apartment was so well appointed it had everything we needed and more.

We had visited Plakias twice before just for the day from Chania and couldn't work out why we liked it so much - our photos showed a rather scruffy beach and not very beautiful buildings but there was an atmosphere about it we loved. The famous Plakias wind blew strongly for the whole 6 days this trip, but we found it only invigorating and loved the place even more.

This year we had time to explore the surrounding area and discovered many little beaches and coves to swim in, each with its own character, beautiful mountains, history, interesting monasteries and people who made time to speak to you, even at the end of a busy season. Cities like Chania, beautiful as they are, seemed a little harsh and rushed by comparison.

The owner Manolis made us feel welcome and was very patient answering our questions. Our apartment was spacious, quiet and cleaned by a young lady who was both thorough and sensitive to our needs. We could see the mountains from our balcony and a little strip of the beach but the studios at the front have the ultimate seaview and facing south, are a great place to top up tans.

And all this at a reasonable price.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front have seaviews, those to the side, part mountain + a little of the beach

have just returned from another visit to the Morpheas apartment in Plakias. Spotlessly clean with wonderful views and welcoming owners. Definitely recommended.

Room Tip: the rooms at the front have wonderful sea views.

We travelled to Crete to celebrate our tenth anniversary with our seven year old boys, as well as lots of friends and family. Olga welcomed us with wine and fruit in honour of the occasion and we spent a glorious 11 nights in Plakias. The room service is excellent and everything is kept spotless. The washing machine was a huge boon when travelling with kids and needing to wash beach towels. The south coast of Crete is glorious, with beautiful beaches and incredible landscapes. The tavernas in Plakias serve superb fresh seafood, but you can also eat in the apartments (or on the balcony), as there is a huge fridge and full cooking facilities. We had a wonderful time and will soon make plans to return.

Room Tip: The apartments have a bedroom and a lounge with a separate mezzanine floor that serves as a bedroom...

We have been travelling to Crete en famille for over 5 years now. We discovered Plakias and its fantastic nearby beaches Amoudi, Damoni from the beginning but this was our first time staying in Plakias. We arrived in the afternoon with no accommodation booked and quickly settled into a nearby taverna overlooking the sea. We had a leisurely lunch and then leaving our bags with the waiters, we set off to explore our options for accommodation. With an 11 year old and a 13 year old our priority was a double bed (for us( and a separate room for the kids. As soon as we found Morpheus we were hooked. A large apartment with washing machine, fully equipped cooker with oven. The owners were really lovely and the apartment was cleaned every day. We had the best holiday ever and can't wait to return.

This was our 3rd visit in a row to these excellent appartments. Having stayed in several other establishments in Plakias over 15 years we prefer these centrally located, clean and spacious rooms. Our favourite sea facing self catering "studio" is everything we need with daily towel replacement and good wifi connection we have everything we need. The furnishings and equipment are modern and of a high standard. Unlike several other establishments the booking made is always available on arrival. Olga her Mum and Manolis are friendy, professional and welcoming. Can't ask for more
