    Breakfast, which was an extra charge of 7 euros. Basic elements were there, but not presented in an attractive manner. Hot food doesn’t stay hot as it isn’t covered, 1 type of cheese, bread is haphazardly pre-sliced and arranged. Had read a review that coffee was bad, but found it to be average tasting, but ok. Nice breakfast room with outside seating. Most guests seem to eat here because it’s a short walk to town and not awful, but average. It wouldn’t take a lot for hotel to revamp. One can always opt out of breakfast. 5 euro cash every time you wish to use a beach towel is irritating. Place a debit on the hotel room until it is returned. The front desk isn’t consistenlt staffed. This was never a problem for me. There is a no. to call for assistance if needed.

    Ocean view, spacious balcony, short walk to middle of town, free parking, quiet, value, elevator (3 level hotel). Great maid service. Cabinet in hallway with basic supplies if needed (TT, soap, shampoo). Ample breakfast hours. Great AC. I would definitely stay here again.

    The breakfast on offer at €6.00 per person is very good value but not a good variety on a daily basis. Could do with a change of produce offered.

    The room was a very good size with a very good balcony with a spectacular sea view. It comes with en-suite bathroom with fitted shower. Regular change of towels and bedding.

    Great hotel, great location for complete relaxation. We had a sea view which was amazing as no busy road in front. Breakfast was lovely, great selection, owners very friendly and welcoming.

    Please add a bread knife and a couple of wine glasses to the kitchen cupboard.

    I love the location and my view of sea and mountains. I have a balcony and a nicely equipped studio. I've extended my stay, in spite if poor weather, from 3 to 7 nights.

    As the only Brits in the place we weren't too excited about the German habit of smoking at the breakfast table, seemed like everyone except us was smoking. Room was very clean on arrival but the housekeeping was sloppy - the bathroom surfaces were never cleaned all week and if we hadn't got to them, the glasses and teacups were left untouched. Not meaning to be spoiled brats but the lack of care felt very end of season.

    Good location a five minute walk from the edge of town. Beds comfortable. Wonderful views out to sea and very little traffic on the road so room was quiet. Breakfast buffet was fine and coffee was very good. Overall a nice hotel.

    Beach over the road is a bit rocky in the sea. Good for snorkeling though when you get out far enough.

    Great location, facilities and view. Situated a 5 Min stroll from town it is in a nice quiet area with beautiful views over the sea. WiFi is good. Room was great. Many free things in the hotel (books, games, postcards, etc.)

    If you stay for a longer period,it's desirable more dairy products and vegetables for breakfast.

    Everything. Location is excellent - edge of the village, quiet, relax. But close to the taverns. Clean. Friendly staff. We traveled by car to different south beaches and to the north of Crete. But the beach of Plakias is by walking. Highly recommended.

    Wifi was a bit choppy at times, but we were on the very edge of the property.

    This place is a perfect getaway from the crowds of Plakias, yet it's only a 5 min walk into town. It was peaceful and idyllic with a "private" beach right outside the steps. This location is perfect to fully relax and unwind, couldn't recommend it more!

    Nice place to stay if you travel on car over south Crete. There are good parking - very close to the rooms. The hotel is a little away from Plakias, but it's about 5 minutes on you feet and 1 minute on car.
