I have just returned from staying here for 2 weeks. Fantastic is a word that will sum up my stay, also peaceful & beautiful. The apartment's are kept impeccably clean, bedding & towels changed every other day. Everyone was very friendly. I would definitely recommend these apartments to anyone & everyone.....well done.

I have just returned from my second wonderful holiday at the Irida Studios, run by Manolis & Maria, booked via Olympic Holidays. From start to finish, it was faultless. I will definitely be returning in 2015.

Freshly decorated, well maintained. Any problems swiftly dealt with. 10 minutes from centre, 5 from beach and big supermarket. Very comfortable beds. Nice swimming pool. Room a little on small side and usual Greek studio rock hard towels. But recommended. Will return!

Having just returned from week in Plakias, staying at the Irida Apartments, I can only echo the fulsome praise and glowing compliments from the other reviewers regarding the Irida. The rooms are small, but comfortable, with a wet-room style shower room / WC and decent kitchen facilities. What really makes the Irida special, however, are the little touches -- the... More
