Well situated, on the beach and next to center. Suberb breakfast at Olive Tree. Would recommend the sea view room, specious with great view. Near very good restaurants, Pirgos, Cugini, Almera. Rent a car and investigate the island.

Hotel in on the border with Platanias. Especially nice and service minded staff. Nice location by the beach. The Olive Tree restaurant down by the beach. Nice and well secured rooms. Recommended but try to avoid the rooms facing the road.

We stayed in Oct 17 for a few days. The hotel is in the beach, the far end of the strip. Stella was excellent and most helpful. Fine big clean room with views onto the beach. A pool and bar if you don't want to walk to beach. The beach is nicer further up but a short walk. incredibly value out of the high season.

Perfect hotel for families, as you can watch your kids from your balcony, while they play or swim, excellent taverna under the stars, quite and friendly neighbors, usually scandinave, a real relaxing holiday in a new and modern hotel

Just came back from the Rania beach hotel and it was the best holiday so far! Everything was close to the hotel, beach, restaurants, shops etc. Our studio had an ocean view, balcony next to the Olive Tree restaurant, but we didn't mind. Restaurant had a nice lunch and dinner and we ate there few times. We didn't have breakfast bought beforehand but if You wanted to buy it, You should order it day before from the Olive Tree restaurant and it costed about 10euros. Also the hotel's pool bar had a little snack/lunch. The hotel room had almost everything, towels, hairdryer, little shampoos, slips and bathrobes, beach/pool towels, ok kichenette, aircon, free wifi and the welcoming basket with fruits and wine. Only minuses were hard beds and the shower, little small and the handle was little broken. Not a five star room, but very clean and nice for 3+ star hotel. Staff was also welcoming and kind, and the hotel was most of all vefy quiet. Not so suitable maybe for families (had a small kids pool, but the main pool was over 2 meters deep at the deepest), but very nice for people who like it quiet. The centre of Platanias was nearby if you wanted to see more nightlife. We were overall very satisfied and will definitely consider coming back here and recommed this hotel!
