If you are looking for a complete quiet and relaxation this is the place for you. Away of any main roads, noise and mass tourism here you can enjoy. The premisses are very clean and well kept and the sea is two steps away. The beach is far from the best on the island but still you can enjoy the...

My husband and I just wrapped up a great 5 days at Caretta Beach. The resort is small but lovely and immaculately maintained. Barbara and Thea were excellent hosts. We ate at the resort a few times and were very impressed with the delicious food, greek salads, souvlaki and the best beef stifado I have had thus far on our...

My partner and I stayed at Caretta Beach for 5 days and had a wonderful time. All of the staff, especially Barbara and Thea, were so welcoming and kind. Upon arrival I informed Barbara of my gluten allergy and she was able to accomodate me, adjusting dishes as necessary to make sure I always had a full, happy tummy. She...

My wife, daughter and I stayed here for two weeks in August and the first thing I would say is that the people working here are the most considerate and genuine people, for whom nothing was too much trouble. Its a very quiet resort, with a hotel quite close by, on either side. But it's a rural beachside setting and...

We stayed there last summer (we came from Lithuania, the owners organized us a taxi to and from the hotel) and were more then happy about everything, especially location and restaurant food. Owners were just fantastic. It is a really wonderful small family hotel. Barbara cooked every day for our one year baby boy and we enjoyed all the meal....

We have been 1 week in this hotel very close to Platanias. The staff is very kind and always for help and suggestions. Rooms are ok. The hotel has direct access to the beach, where you can get 1 umbrella and 2 beds for 2.5 €. Also, the location of the hotel is very convenient since it is easy to...

Very friendly and attentive staff, fantastic/picturesque location, couldn't ask for more. Room was small/basic, but had everything we needed & really only treated as a place to crash at night anyway. My daughter was over the moon to have seen a turtle on the beach - even though it was an injured one being re-released after treatment.

“Rooms in front building have view of Med Sea; I do not think room in back buildings really do. By booking early we got CENTER TOP; a most amazing view of pool/beach/sea.”

“Staff will give you a set of keys and a "key for electricity" and tell you mustn't detach any of them. But if you want to keep the air con on, while you are away, simply detach that "key for electricity" and lock the door. Keep the shutters closed in the heat, OK this obscures the lovely view, but really makes a difference. Hotels helps in arranging taxis, booking cars, but honestly there are some crazy drivers in Greece - speeding and driving right next to the boot of the other car. Our taxis almost got invloved in an accident... Yes, we were with two small kids, but that detail wouldn't make the driver drive more carefully. No entertainment for kids (no slides, nothing)”
