“Great location..very hospitable”
Reviewed 28 August 2014 via mobile

We stayed for 4 nights.Markos and his wife did their best to make our stay pleasant.Both of them very polite and hospitable.

The room size was ok equipped with kitchenette and a fridge. The bathroom was big.There is a daily cleaning service.
The breakfast is plentiful and freshly prepared.

The location of the hotel is very good.Five minutes walk from the centre of Plakias while all popular beaches (Preveli, Damnoni, Megalo and Mikro Ammoudi, Schinaria etc) are easily accessible by car.

Recommended even for longer stays.

Year 7 at Stella in Plakias for us.

As mentioned on previous reviews (including my own), staying at Stella is always a joy.

Markos and Evi look after you so well, the breakfast is very good and the rooms are spotlessly clean.

Barring a disaster we will be there again in 2014-can't wait!

Stayed at the Stella Studios in early October this year. The staff (Marcus & Evi) where great hosts who looked after us well and provided us with a freshly purchased breakfast each morning. The rooms were clean and simply furnished with a lovely balcony overlooking the peaceful resort of Plakias. The hotel is surrounded by friendly beaches and small tavernas with cheap but high quality food. Would recommend to anyone and will definitely be returning next year.

Room Tip: The front facing rooms overlooking the sea front.

I really can't fault this accomodation. The rooms are cleaned daily, Markos and his wife are very helpful. Any problems with the room were sorted out the same day.
It's in a quiet but easily accessible location, plenty of space to park hire cars. It's a very short walk to the nearest supermarket or taverna. Likewise it's just a short walk to the beach.
Free wi-fi internet, safe, and air conditioning.
Small patio area to sit and socialise with a beer or a coffee.
10/10.

At the end of another absolutely fabulous holiday in plakias in August 2012.

Staying at Stella, you got so well looked after. Rooms are comfortable, so clean and changed regularly. Markos and his wife Evie make a great breakfast for around 3€ extra which really sets you up for the day.

For the asking price of under €40€ a night, you can't really go wrong!

This is our sixth stay at Stella and barring a disaster, we will return in 2013.

Just returned from our 14th year in succession stay at Stella Pension. This is a wonderful small and quiet well run establishment kept unbelievably clean by Markos and Evi - two of the kindest people imaginable - both with a superb sense of humour. Rooms have full self catering facilities, air conditioning and wifi. They are serviced every day with frequent sheet and towel changes. A really filling breakfast is also served (optional). We cannot imagine staying anywhere else in Plakias or indeed anywhere else in Crete and it is the main reason for our coming back for so many years to this wonderful village. Our 14 years in succession has been surpassed by many fellow guests who we meet year after year. Situated slightly back from the main street it is quiet (thankfully no pool) but within only a few minutes walking distance of tavernas, bars and the sea. Ample parking for those with hire cars.

Room Tip: Little difference but some people may prefer the upstairs rooms. Ground floor rooms good access for...

Just come back from another amazing holiday in Plakias with a fantastic stay with Markos and Evie at the Stella Appartments.

Clean rooms, generous breakfasts, with Markos quick to make sure everthing was as it should be.

Genuine bargain in one of the best resorts in the whole of the island.
