Stayed 1 week in Porto Platanias Beach june 2016. Good standard on rooms. Good location on beach in very touristy Platanias. Platanias is litle Scandinavia, and high price level. Good quality on all inclusive food and drinks. Beach was good and clean. As many other places, people layed out their towels, to reserve sunbeds. Taxi from airport costs 40 euro.

Prior to our visit in October; I had read many reviews on this hotel and mindful too of the several reported negative comments. However, these were not justified when everything is balanced First impressions are very important - an excellent front and reception with friendly helpful & passionate reception staff. The bedrooms are typical for a hot country - large,...

We stayed here for 4 nights in October. It was really lovely. The staff were really friendly and helpful. The bar staff were fantastic! Our room was clean and well serviced. We did the all inclusive there and it was well worth it. The food (buffet) was filled with loads of variety (breakfast, lunch and dinner) Food variety would be...

This hotel was lovely it catered for everyone. It had an adult only area and pool but also had areas for families. Food was great and they catered for everyone again you could eat in the upstairs area which was quieter. Views were stunning and staff attentive. We had been sold this as a 4/5 star hotel which I would...

What a great hotel. The staff are lovely, especially the bar staff who really have to put up with a lot from some quite demanding older customers! I can imagine in peak season in the evening it can be ridiculously crowded as it was relatively busy at the one all inclusive bar by the pool. George, Manolis and the nice...

Well designed friendly hotel. They have squeezed a lot into the plot area. It's not as big as looks on the picture. Nice spread of pool areas. Food excellent and varied. Animation bit limited in scope . The wifi works well all around the hotel, impressed my kids. Don't make the most of being on the shore

Was lucky enough to have 3 days at this hotel. Had a fabulous one bedroom suite which was overlooking the beach and sea with a private pool. Sadly didn't have time to make use of it but I'll definitely be back when I have more time. The beach in front of the hotel is a lovely golden sand beach with...
