“SMALL AND FRIENDLY HOTEL IN GREAT LOCATION AWAY FROM HUSTLE AND BUSTLE”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2011

This was a great location on the East side of Plakias slightly out of town(5 mins to centre)
It has a lovely pool area at the rear of the property with a pool bar providing food (breakfast,lunch,dinner) and drink on request, at this time of year.The area was spotless and the pool checked everyday for leaves etc.They filled the pool for us when we arrived even though it was very cold and not many pools had been filled.The family run hotel is very small with only 10 rooms which are cleaned everyday and nothing was too much trouble for the friendly owners of the hotel.I would definately return here if in Plakias again.A lot of mini marts and supermarkets nearby.Lovely views of mountains surrounding Plakias though beach view restricted by the trees.Rep from Olympic was very helpful providing us with maps of the local area for walking(Sasha)The price was incredible from Olympic at this time of year.No extra for single room......

Room Tip: Room 6 on upper level would have the best views

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 October 2010

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here. Manoulis and his family were very friendly and welcoming. The apartments are basic, but more than adequate. They are situated on the main road into Plakias on the left hand side about 300m from the resort centre. There is some traffic noise and other noise from adjacent local businesses, but not obtrusive. Behind the apartments is a lovely raised pool terrace with sun loungers in an attractive garden setting with olive trees and other flowers. Plakias is an excellent (low key) resort from which to explore the surrounding area. Some excellent local beaches, very enjoyable walks and stunning scenery. Eating is straight forward with a good range of tavernas and supermarkets. My personal high lights was walking to Timios Stavros, a tiny chapel perched on a 400m mountain, and just visible from the apartments. Also, I would recommend Maria's taverna in Lefkoyia for her excellent omelette. This was recommended to me by a local resident and he wasn't wrong. I would also highly recommend Lance Chiltern's book, Walks in Plakias.
