“Luxury flats for sure!”
Reviewed 9 July 2012

This brand new (2011) facility in the quiet small south Cretan town of Plakias is just great. We had 2 bedroom flat for a whole week. No less than 3 balconys and a roof terrace. The standard of the flat was excellent, and kept very clean for the entire stay. Three swimmingpools with very comfortable free sun-beds just outside the flat. A long and nice beach is just 3 minutes away and the town centre 10 minutes walk. In town there was a good selection of tavernas and shops. The place was very windy during our stay (last week of June 2012), but that was (almost) just a benefit with the high temperatures. The resort has a minimum service available (you can order breakfast and some snacks, drinks), but as a self-service facility this is just great!

We arrived quite late at night as we had stopped off for something to eat on the way from Chania airport.

There was a really polite young man, Adrian, there to see us to our apartment - he even carried the bags in for us.

We were allocated a 1 bed apartment all on one level which was perfect for us as we are getting on a bit and were grateful not to have internal stairs.

The apartment was well laid out and very well equiped. There were a few minor wrinkles, like needing a brighter bulb in the bathroom and an extra blanket at night. But nothing that couldn't easily be resolved by simply asking. There was a proper oven and 4 ring hob. Electric kettle, coffee maker, sandwich toaster and enough crockery, glasses & cutlery for 6 people. No washing machine or dishwasher though there appears to be the space to have them in the bathroom and kitchen area. However, there is a laundry service which operates on a 24 hour turnaround but we didn't use it and I didn't enquire how much this service was.

The apartment was cleaned every day which is neither here nor there for us. But I appreciate some people want someone else to make their bed whilst they are on holiday.

The development is very new and sits away from the small town of Plakias across the road from the beach. I would say it was a 10-15 min flat stroll into town. Quite possibly it would suit infirm but enquire if you wish to take a wheel chair. There is a way into the development via a properly constructed concrete sloped pathway which should in turn give access to ground floor apartments.

There is a small childrens (toddlers) pool. A mid sized pool of one depth. And a large pool of one depth. These were natural pools not treated with harsh chemicals and were always very clean. The pools "close" at 7pm.

The grounds are planted up and well maintained. There's even grass which is watered nightly. And I kid you not, a man with a lawn mower!

We have stayed in Plakias before so we knew the area would suit us for our 10 days stay. And the stroll back to our apartment merely allowed our dinner to go down before bed.

All the staff spoke to us in a friendly way and not because they felt they had to. We would definately stay here again.

Room Tip: Don't think you can select and there are many differing layouts of apartment so this advice not...

We stayed for 4 nights at the resort and I must admit we had great time. It's a brand new resort, located just in front of the sea a little outside the village of plakias. Very spacious rooms with nice decoration and two swimming pools in front of the bungalows. Quiet place, with beautiful beach in front. Our two kids enjoyed the pool all day. Very recommended for family vacations. The only negative that I can mention is the lack of room service, but it's not a hotel so it's fair enough.
