Nice rooms, fantastic location, even better front desk service. Good pool-bar, good pool. Possible room-service (although we didn't use it) Possible massage (didn't use that either) Very friendly greeting we got when we arrived. The Bell-boy was extremly serviceminded and refused a tip. Great place

This hotel I will return to. Had 12 good days there, and everyone who worked there Vae very nice, so one feels at home there. Brothers Sgourakis created a nice atmosphere everywhere in the hotel and they are good conductors of each seating area, a delight to watch them at work.

Loved our holiday. Stayed two years in a row and we would go back again. The rooms are a bit old but the atmosphere is so great that nobody cares! The best restaurant of platanias is next door and just a one minute walk from the pool. (Kyano) The food by the pool is good and tasteful

We have switched to Santa Elena after a rather poor experience in Kissamos. We found the hotel clean, greatly located with a beach and a really huge pool. Rooms are not luxurious but nice and clean with everything you might need (maybe wine opener would be a nice addition). The service is very gentle and outgoing. The restaurant is better...

Nice hotel in the end of the Platanias next to the lovely beach. Lovely garden and pools, but it was very cold water in both of the pools. Not luxuary apartments, but all that we needed.
