Hotel Porto Plakias
Ranked #15 of 24 Hotels in Plakias
Reviewed September 21, 2013

we were very satisfied, the hotel has big rooms (with air conditionair, refrigerator, terasse), was clean. For breakfast (bufet - good choice) you had to go to the next hotel Myrits (one minute from Porto hotel). Five minutes to the hotel restaurant Kri-kri which is situated in the centre of the village. The weather was very hot (for mid-September), about 29 degrees each day with very warm evenings. Any time again.

Very good hotel, situated in a quiet location, but only a few minutes walk away from the beautiful bay at Plakias and the shops, restaurants, bars etc.

Would recommend rooms on the 3rd floor, as these give the better views - Room 304 does provide views of the sea (even though not advertised as a sea view), and also panoramic views of the surrounding hills/mountains.

Although the hotel does have a swimming pool and pool bar on the roof terrace, residents may also use the lovely pool at the Myrtis Hotel next door, which is where breakfast is also served.

Although the Hotel Porto Plakias does not have a restaurant in the building, it is linked to the Kri- Kri restaurant/taverna which overlooks the stunning bay at Plakias, and where the food is first class, and service excellent, and which is only situated less than 5 minutes away.

Would highly recommend both the Hotel Porto Plakias and the Kri-Kri Restaurant/Taverna - the staff are very efficient, friendly and professional.

Room Tip: Rooms on the 3rd floor (top floor)will provide more panoramic views (some with sea views) - lower fl...

A nice hotel but not 4 stars.

The bedrooms have a high specification but the views from them are not great (with the ground floor particularly overlooked.

The best feature is the extensive (building-wide) roof terrace with pool (though this is smaller than the photos suggest). Both are quiet and not overlooked. The pool bar is never open.

The hotel is very convemient for the centre.

Room Tip: Higher floors are less overlooked. Rooms at the far-end to reception get the sun later.

This hotel may claim to be 4 star plus, but don't think for one minute that you're getting 4 star UK standards.

The website shows very creative work with a wide angle lens. The hotel is actually crammed in on all sides, and the "Sea View" offered from the South facing rooms consists of glimpses over the rooftops and between the "work in progress" constructions beside the hotel.

The Roof Terrace is very spacious, with reasonable views, but when it comes to the pool, the wide angle lens comes into play again. The pool is about 3 strokes long, and would be crowded with more than half a dozen people in it.

The rooms are spacious and well furnished, but we found the beds were only made up on alternate days. Lack of a simple shower curtain means you can't have a shower without soaking the bathroom floor, and although the bathroom has a floor drain, your feet are in a pool of water when you use the loo!

The hotel reception is pleasant enough, and the staff are friendly and helpful, all in keeping with a 4 star claim. The breakfast however, served next door in the plastic, soulless and generally inadequate surroundings of the Myrthis leaves a lot to be desired. It is a mystery why someone would offer 4 star B&B accomodation, with no catering facility other than a bar in the building.

For those opting for Half Board, dinner is served in the Kri Kri tavern on the seafront 100 metres or so away. As Kri Kri is one of many very reasonably priced tavernas on the seafront, but certainly not the best, there would seem to be no merit in booking half board.

The surrounding area has stunning scenery and it is easy to find a patch of beach, or out of season a whole beach, to yourself. In terms of other hotels in Plakias, Porto Plakias may well be the best of a bad bunch, but it could so easily have been so much better.

i think that this hotel is the best in plakias

i absolutely agree with the previous report.
The room was clean nice decorated with a reasonable price. It was above my expectations.

The place of plakias is wonderful, a lot of fantastic beaches to select in the area and nice places to eat.

I recommend mirthios village for food because of the terrific view especially during the sunset.

Just be careful with the breakfast. If you are late you might not find a variety of good to eat.
