A pleasant hotel operated by a nice couple. A great pool area with a great view and clean rooms. Well maintained facilities. 5-7 min's walk to the beach, but at the same time adequate distance from the more noisy party areas. Location and access require you to be mobile and not to have any issues with walking stairs or steep...

This family run family hotel, is one of the greatest hotels ive been to in my life. The staff and owners of the hotel, is so open and welcoming. Its a quiet place for relaxing and not far from the nearest restaurant, nor the city center. The pool is not that big, but its really clean and is heated. Would...

We stayed on the villa second time and enjoyed every moment. On the pool there was fantastic view over the platanias area, especially the sunsets were spectacular. Villa was very peaceful and comfortable. It was still very close to the centre and hill restaurants. Thumbs up for the owners, Silvia and George you were so helpful and very friendly !

The room (single room) is spacious with two beds, and an extra bed, a small kitchen with the necessary stuff. The view is spectacular and the pool is very nice. The owners are really helpful - for instance we mentioned that we like football and they got us tickets to see Platanias FC vs Olympiakos, the last game of the...

Having read a lot of good reviews of this hotel, it turned out to be bit of a disappointment . Our apartment was rather spacious, with two balconies, but very simple furnished, and the bathroom was tiny, flooding the floor every time we took a shower. Both balconies were overlooking and very close to the neighbouring balconies, so not a...

Friendly greeting from the owner as we arrived which made us feel welcome. Rooms were basic but the whole place was very clean and we had fresh towels and linen daily. Very modern pool and bar/reception area were great. Snacks served were first class. The apartments themselves are halfway between the old village and the main resort. We preferred the...
