Our location of choice and we have stayed many times. It is a quiet and convenient location, being right on the beach and about 20 minutes walk to the town down a straight beach road. As always, the welcome by Giorgia and Yannis is happy and friendly and the rooms are spotless. Whichever room you are in, the views - either to the beach or to the mountains are stunning. There is a restaurant and beach bar, the restaurant serves traditional home made food - delicious. We will return in September, which is a wonderful time in Crete, the sea is warmer and the weather great! However, I hardly like to recommend this resort for fear it will become too popular!! A couple of things to point out is that some of the beaches have nudist sections, so if you are offended by this you now know. Also the weather - the south of the island of Crete can be very, very windy. The Meltimi can blow for days. If you don't like the wind, don't come. It can make sunbathing impossible and even walking in a force 9 can be difficult!! However, young and old seem to survive and return every year.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Paligremnos is a family business at the southern end of Plakias' long beach road, where the sand is of finest grain and the sunset is most beautiful. Due to the surrounding mountains a rather comfortable micro-climate prevails the area, keeping away some rain clouds and allowing a fresh breeze when it is needed the most. ... more less
