My wife, two kids (ages 10 and 12), and I just returned from an amazing vacation to Crete. Our stay at this hotel added to the wonderful time we had. We prefer to stay in quiet areas, away from the bustling resorts, but within reasonable travel distances to sightseeing and adventure areas. Plakias, Greece and the Horizon Beach Hotel fit... More

When we arrived and asked for a double room for 2 nights the owner said the only room available was a three bed room with a big balcony, which was, of course, more expensive than a double room. Shortly after we had checked in he received a booking through "booking.com" for our room for the following night. He then informed... More

Decent hotel, nice hotel atmosphere, nice breakfast, excellent sea view, the only real negative points is that they should clean up the room more carefully and that the hotel staff should be a little bit more friendly. I would definitely stay again in this hotel.

If you stay at this hotel, make sure you ask for a room on the top level. My husband and I had one of these rooms and the view was spectacular. In terms of the room, it was pretty large with a good size balcony. However, the floor seemed a little dirty. The shower was pretty small and the towels... More

Having been to Plakias before, I went there without booking a hotel. I checked out a few, walked up to Horizon Beach, checked the available room, really liked it and stayed. The room is in the annex and is in fact a studio with a big balcony with great views. It all looked very new. You have to walk stairs... More

We were pleasantly surprised by this hotel. The bed was on the hard side but confy and the room was a good size. Definitely splurge for the A/C here - it's pretty humid. Nice to have the fridge and kettle. Had a nice side-view of the sea with a big deck, with table and chairs. Bathroom was nicely finished -... More
