We stayed here for 11 nights and were extremely impressed having chosen a sea view studio. No issues with the wi-fi. The family are very helpful and friendly, the standard of cleaning is exemplary, sheets were changed three times during our stay ! The complimentary Raki and wine was also a thoughtful surprise and much appreciated. The location is ideal,... More

We stayed for 4 days with our 2 babies and we were totally satisfied of the hospitality of the owners the services and the prices. The room was clean and well made, just a few metres from the beach. Totally recommended for quiet family vacation. Thanks for everything.

My wife and I have been going to Plakias for the last 24 years and have stayed at most of the hotels and studios, sometimes twice a year. This was one of the most pleasant stays so far. Manolis was the most welcoming, friendly, persons you could wish to meet. On arrival fresh fruit was waiting in the room, also... More

Nice tidy hotel right by the beach- welcome raki on arrival. The room was small but had everything you would want - shutter windows kept it nice a dark. The beds were quite comfy too although still a little hard for my liking. Plakias was also lovely- quite seaside town with a lovely view. Wish we'd stopped longer.

Basicly it's rental studio apartments, kept clean by a very friendly housekeeper, who can speak very little english. The beach, bakeries, and restaurants are literally just a few steps from the house. It might get loud sometimes (traffic) if u had ur door open. But it's usually warm when u visit crete, so u want to close the door and... More

We were just going to Plakias for the weekend and this place was just what we needed. Clean and very reasonable price, we had the sea view room and loved waking up to the sound of the waves. It is a good basic room.

The apartment was well equipped, the owner is nice and friendly. The hotel is in front of the sea, near the center of Plakias. The coast is windy, but you can find (ask the owner!!) some beaches with no wind (or just a bit).

Manolis & his wife are totally charming and little plates of delicious freshly cooked cakes and the most fantastic fruit were to be found in the room or handed over the balcony constantly. Not forgetting the home made Raki on the return from the restaurant! We were 4 in a one bedroom apartment. You could practically walk onto the beach... More
