We had a super time. The hotel was fantastic, the staff were so friendly and the food was wonderful. A week just wasn't long enough and we can't wait to go back! The hotel was next to the beach and there was a handy local bus and boat trips every day to the wonderful Palm Beach.

In the beautiful bay of Plakias, this hotel offers everything you need. Good rest, nice pool area, top breakfast buffet (delicious and plentiful) and last but not least, a very nice staff: efficient and friendly to the right point (you never they're overdoing it), most of all the waiter-manager who made us feel warmly welcomed.

We had a great time at this very well run, clean and attractive hotel - definitely top of the range in Plakias. The staff are very friendly and welcoming and the buffet breakfast and diners are excellent. The pool is attractive and relaxing, although not a "swimmers" pool as it is very shallow at one end. The hotel is well...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The sunshine of the mind Time is still. The clouds of daily routine have faded away. The sun is shining in your mind. Holidays. It is not just a break for you; it is a reward, a generous gift to yourself and your family. You have been waiting a whole year for these days, you have worked for them, you have earned them. But when they arrive, they always seem so few. Well then, let's make them unforgettable. If you are just looking for any hotel in Crete, then you are going to have to deal with a whole lot of choices, good and bad. But if you are looking for a beautiful, quiet, authentic and hospitable family hotel in Crete, combining comfortable and quality accommodation with a fascinating journey in Cretan tradition, history and nature, then the decision becomes much easier. It is not by chance that over 90% of our guests say that they would choose Alianthos Garden Hotel for their holidays again. And it is not by chance that over 30% of them do so, for many consecutive years. This is our reward, our gift. Alianthos Garden Hotel is located in the peaceful and beautiful Plakias, in Southern Crete, in front of the immense and mystical Libyan Sea. Everything here is made for holidays, even the "architecture" of the natural scenery. It is like God has specifically designed this place for the clearing of the mind and the relaxation of the soul. But it is not just its location in the heart of Plakias that makes Alianthos Garden Hotel one of the most beautiful hotels in Crete. Above all, it is the kindness, the hospitality and the open heart of our people. After all, this is Crete: an open heart. All of us at Alianthos Garden Hotel welcome you, with the promise that we will do our best to take the past year "off your shoulders" and give you strength and beautiful memories for the next one. ... more   less
