Nice, small and quiet place. Good appartment. Helpful crew. The resturant was among 3 best of 12 resturants we visited at Platanias. Cleaning was top service. The internet was not so good in the apparment but in all other areas ok. A hotel we want to visit again.

The hotel room was both beautiful and practical, cleaners always did a fantastic job and the air conditioning was a god send! The hotel is a good size, not too crowded even when fully booked and they allow loungers to be taken... More

This is a relatively easy hotel to describe. Its small, cozy and has very nice rooms. It has a pool that may be to small for all the guests at the hotel. The beach is easily accessable, its about 60 meters from the local pool area. The bar/resturant provides tasty food and beverages for a reasonable price. We have included... More

OK appartement hotel. Small, quiet (not street side rooms) and close to the beach. Good service except at the front desk (closed most of the day). Had to pay extra, cash only, for the safe box, and the person there put the money right in his pocket. Not uncommon practise in Greece, I realized. Excellent food at the pool restaurant... More

What more do you need? Great staff both in the hotel and the restaurant, try the gigantic and tasty stuffed burger!! Only thing is that the breakfast was little... Poor, tasty but poor. Clean room, quiet and cosy.
