This is a delightful hotel which combines straightforward, modern comfort with traditional warmth and friendliness. It is set in the beautiful and unspoiled village of Platanias, which has easy access to good beaches and a small number of very pleasant tavernas, and is an extremely relaxing and pleasant place to stay. The owners are particularly hospitable and helpful, and the hotel has a lovely ambience - its decor and features reflecting local crafts and traditions. The leisurely breakfast on the hotel's terrace, surrounded by flowers and birdsong, makes a very uplifting start to the day. We have now visited the Hotel Des Roses for three consecutive summers and continue to find it a haven of friendly tranquility and excellent service.
