We stayed one week in Ideal Beach with friends. Our room was studio, just normal, nothing special. Not the beautiest one, but good for us, we only slept and took showers in our room. Everything worked, there were fridge, safety box, small tv (which we didn't use), hot water (took a little time to get that). If you want just stay in room whole holiday then our studio with terrace won't be your choice. From our terrace we saw a little piece of garden, neightbours balconys and the wall of main building. There were peaceful, but we weren't there in the middle of the high season. We heard about nothing noise.
Hotel area is clean, garden is well cared for, beautiful flowers, every day we saw somebody to take care of the garden. Also our room were clean, cleaning is (if I remember right) six times in week.
Hotel is next to the beach, lovely! Sunbeds in the beach cost some euros per day, in the pool area chairs were free. Nice and deep swimmingpool and own pool for children. Pool is ok to swim a little, maybe not if you want to swim a long way. For us it was really good! Service in restaurant was always happy, they smiled all the time and were very friendly. You just don't have to do more than lay in sunbed in the beach and ask waitress to bring you cold beer. Means that also in the beach is service.
We also got half board, breakfast and dinner (in the evening). Breakfast was very simple but ok, dinner was also simple, but always food was good! Greek evening (every wednesday?) was also nice, so many different foods (traditional), some dancers and music.
Ideal Beach located in the middle of Platanias village. So you don't need to walk far from hotel and you have everything. Even if the location is so centre, there was peaceful in hotel area. And also next to the hotel there is very nice restaurant Skoniako!
With me there were three other persons, age about 30 y, two couples. I could recommend this hotel for many different travellers. Maybe if you have honeymoon then you have to take at least dirrerent room or if you gonna mostly stay in room. But yes, hotel was nice, good choice!
