Troulakis Village is located in the hill above the entrance to the about half a kilometre long road in Platanias where you can buy swimming equipment, t-shirts of different kind of quality, liters with olive oil, tons of spices etc. etc..
The Hotel is absolutely OK. Almost new, I believe it was opened in 2006. So the hotel area and rooms were very nice and clean. Actually, the maintenance and cleaning personnel is among the best we have seen down by the Mediterranean. A big plus for that.
A big L-shaped swimming pool was good to have for a morning swim. There is a poolbar next to the swimming pool and also a small hotel restaurant above the pool selling small, expensive, but good snacks. A little minimarked is also at the place, selling basic items like butter, bread.
For us middle aged people it was absolutely positive to find the kindergarten factor very low. But this was in the middle of september. It is probably different in july / august.
For some strange reason one of the buildings were lying in shadow all day long. It was the building with the balcony direction pointing at the pool.
The size of the rooms were perfect, not a ballroom, not a tiny little bucket room.
The best thing about the hotel is its location. Almost no disturbing noise in the area, and at the same time close distance to restaurants, shopping and the beach. Another thing, at our experience we have found out that when we have some distance to the beach at night, and also stay up in the hill, the problems with the mosquitoes is low.
This hotel is recommended!
