KYMANI Boutique Hotel & Suites, hotel in Plakias

Boasting a seasonal outdoor swimming pool, shared lounge, garden and free WiFi, KYMANI Boutique Hotel & Suites is set in Plakias, 200 metres from Plakias. This 3-star hotel offers a concierge service....

Being at Crete for the ninth time I must say that I loved the hotel and everything in it. Although there was construction from the next hotel, on the moment I complained , we were given a better room in a quieter side. We really appreciated it and we are sure that as soon the construction will be completed it will be the best place on the south of Crete to reside. Close to the beach and all the great restaurants. Everywhere we went people were so friendly. We thank KYMANI for helping the experience be the best.

Lamon Hotel, hotel in Plakias

Located a few steps from the sandy beach of Plakias and a 5-minute walk from the village, Lamon Hotel offers a pool. It features a snack bar and air-conditioned accommodation with balcony.

The staff were great. Looked after us very well, extremely helpful. We had a late arrival flight, outside normal reception hours. This wasn't an issue, and they stored the key in a safe place, which we found on our arrival. The double room with ocean view was lovely, clean, and everything you needed. Showers are always hot when you need them. Cleaning staff cleaned our room every day while we was at breakfast and provided fresh towels. Plakias itself is lovely and there are lots of restaurants and shops. We eat out most nights. Spoilt for choose.

    The jewel in the crown is the most southerly lending library in Europe, most European languages held. Of course Plakias has a nice beach, good walking around; but it has been overdeveloped these last 30y, and looks set to continue.

    Take a side trip to visit Kourtaliotiko Gorge. There is a trail in the gorge, but we didn't have time for that. So we stopped along the road above and followed the path passed the Church of Saint Nicholas down to a beautiful view of the waterfall.

    Quiet place in November, but sea temperature was super nice. Supermarkets are open, as well as some restaurants. There was a lot of construction going on. Many tavernas close to attractions are closed, so take plenty of snacks.

    Plakias is a smallish town and very laid back and relaxing.

    Plakias is a smallish town and very laid back and relaxing. As we were half board we didn't try many of the bars/restaurants on offer. We were going to go on a boat trip but one of our daughters was ill so we had to abandon that idea. My other daughter and I did visit Kourtaliotiko Gorge and waterfall which was amazing and we made it to Souda beach on the last day which had lovely clear water. We had a car so we could travel around. I personally think that is an essential if you want to explore the area as it takes a while to drive anywhere as the roads are quite small and bendy!

    Great little suites right at the beach. Beautiful and clean with a small kitchenette and all utensils required. Our host met us a provided a wonderful welcome with a small bottle of Raki to enjoy on the beautiful balcony overlooking the sea. Breakfast was provided at the Blue Cafe next door. A wonderful breakfast omelette and eggs were served with good coffee! Lovely sandy beach with easy access and as a bonus a wheelchair access right into the water! We loved our stay and wish we could have stayed longer.

    The location was perfect, situated in a calm area with a mini beach literally 2 minutes away. The apartment size was ideal, but the absolute winner was the balcony, offering the opportunity to enjoy the views from sunrise to sunset, sunbathe, stargaze at clear night skies. Maria was the most caring host, available, responsive and thoughtful. It was very visible to us that Creta Spirit is the result of a labour of love. Would go back in a heartbeat

    The appartment is fantastic with a large terrace in the center of Plakias. It has large beds with comfortable mattresses. The shower room is also spacious compared to the default ones. The kitchen unit has pretty much everything you need. We also liked the proximity to the various beaches and got good hints from the nice host where to dine etc. Parking a car is not a problem and it is for free and there are supermarkets close by.

    Fabulous breakfast! Gorgeous pool! Spacious room. Everything about this hotel is very nice, clean and comfortable. Yesterday the mountains were resplendent, dressed up in black clouds and a rainbow, while the beach remained sunny. Amazing. The hotel is situated on the hillside with great views, but a short walk to the city center and beach. A lively place.I will return!

    We had a wonderful time during our stay at Cyano Hotel. We arrived very late (after hours of check-in) but the staff waited for us with a cold plate full of Greek snacks. During our stay, we felt very good and well taken care of. The hotel and our room were very clean. For sure we want to come back to this hotel in the future, we had an amazing time.

    I've stayed in this hotel several times before, in both the older and newer parts of the building, and I'd recommend both. The deluxe rooms are my favourite, and very luxurious. The owner is lovely, and very helpful with any questions we had during our stay. Location is perfect for exploring Plakias. 10/10 will definitely be back again.

    Incredible location. Kitchy, and seemingly past its heyday, but when you have the opportunity to swim in the incredible kalypso beach cove, does it really matter that the bar needs dusting and a coat of paint? I found the pirate theme kinda fun. The dinner was surprisingly good.
