Pros: Good chose, nice location and timing also convinient
Cons: No drinking water available in resort between meals. It could be easily sorted if add a tap with filtrated water next to bar area.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Excellent breakfast. Beautiful and unique location. Variety of activities and facilities to choose from. Choice of swimming pools and sunbed areas were fantastic. Wonderful massages from the Ladies in the SPA. Yoga studio superb!
Cons: Hard to find fault. If anything, as non all inclusive guests, having to pay for every drink separately at the pool bar and not being able to charge it to the room was a little tiresome.
9,6 Excellent
Pros: The sea view was amazing. The room was spacious and the balcony as well. The room and the facilities were exactly as in the pictures. Friendly stuff.
Cons: The internet was very slow and sometimes we didn’t have connection at all. The tv as well but it is because of the location. We didn’t like the animateur’s sketches, we found it childish.
8,3 Excellent
Pros: The pools were great, enjoyed Kalypso dive center, the food was good. The balcony view to the water was great. Staff is friendly.
Cons: The bathroom smelled very bad it needed a deep clean as well. The door to the balcony was broken, the sink water was running all the time, we could hear the people in the room next to us, the beds were uncomfortable, we were not given a key to the safe. There was no WiFi in the room.
6,7 Good
Pros: The location is amazing! The beds are comfortable and the staff very accommodating. The rooms were clean.
Cons: The breakfast was subpar. I saw a member of staff drop serving tongs on the floor then pick them up and use them. The coffee comes out of an automatic coffee machine. The quality of the food was poor. No wifi in the rooms, only in 'public' areas. The nightly show was very loud and went late into the evening.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Massage. Ok but it was up a lot of steps Paid for an evening meal. Excellent value high quality buffet.
Cons: A lot of steps. Obviously couldn't be avoided because of the location but still....A lot of steps everywhere

Plakias Resorts - Plakias - Building

Overview Reviews
Located in Agios Vasileios, Plakias Resorts is by the sea, within a 15-minute drive of Plakias Beach and Kourtaliotiko Gorge. Featured amenities include a business center, a 24-hour front desk, and multilingual staff. For a surcharge, guests may use a roundtrip airport shuttle (available 24 hours) and a ferry terminal shuttle.
7,1 Good
Pros: Good location and well kept, with pleasant staff.
Cons: Paid extra for sea views but it’s not worth it. I ended up with a view of the building site opposite and told the sea was in the distance. ( which was true). While this building work is on going they need to re address the costs of the rooms and don’t market these as sea views. Save your money.
8,3 Excellent
Pros: the resort is modern and clean. Personnel is helpful and tried their best to help with the issues we had with the room and weather (below).
Cons: the rooms from the north side are facing construction yard with a lot of noise and dust (and the negative effect is amplified by the strong wind). These rooms shouldn't be rented or customers should we warned about this. Also, wind was very strong during our stay and we couldn't get proper sleep because of it. We asked to change the room and after 2 days we got replacement room on the other part of the resort that was better - brighter, calmer and not facing construction yard. Maybe it was bad luck but wind was unbearable (i.e. we couldn't eat on the terrace).
9,2 Excellent
Pros: The resort looks great, has two good sized pools and nice vegetation. The staff are very welcoming, helpful and kind. The beach is across the street and there is an area with free sunbeds and umbrellas for hotel residents. Our room was spacious and well furnished - we had an apartment, which included a well furnished kitchen and a washing machine. It is self catering but breakfast can be provided upon request.
Cons: The Plakias Bay was very windy while we were there (Northerly winds seem to particularly impact this Bay) - so much so that it made sitting on the beach unbearable after a while. What saved us was going to other nearby beaches - Souda Beach and Damnoni Beach in particular. The resort is not in Plakias itself, but in an area with lots of new construction in progress - it wasn't loud, it just looked a bit grim. The expectation is that all or most of those buildings will be finished by 2020 though.
9,2 Excellent
Pros: Great large, clean, modern new apartment. Building quality above Greek expectation. Staff were really helpfull and service minded. Cleaning was very good Large, nice and clean swimming pool
Cons: niets
8,0 Excellent
Pros: We enjoy being so close to the beach, even when it is windy! And if it is too bad, we can always find shelter in the garden! The balconies outside the apartments are also quite private and large enough that you can eat outside if you like.. We like the walk into town most evenings to choose a nice restaurant, or once in a while climbing uphill to Mirtos to look at the wonderful sunset accompanying a really good meal. Or just walking across the street to our local favourite! Going to Preveli for a day trip is a must, and we still have some planned walking excursions in the neighborhood to do. Since we have been in Plakias and the area before, we can relax and do exactly what we like - no rush! But for those who want some more action, there are gorges not too far away---- For us Plakias is perfect the way it is now!
Cons: Can't think of anything! Maybe the idea that there is much building activity going on, but that is of course very selfish. We only hope that it is the people of Plakias who will profit from this, and not some foreign investors!
10,0 Excellent
Pros: It's a beach hotel , close to the town Plakias, has 2 pools and a baby pool. Pretty good. Quiet.
Cons: The bed could be bigger.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Perfect location for our family of 8. We had our own swimming pool and the two children aged 3 and 5 could also swim in the pool for children between the two huge pools! And on top of it all, the sea was just across the road.
Cons: it could not have been any better!
8,8 Excellent
Pros: We were allocated a flat in the new build section above the main existing property- these are lovely and well furnished and have great terraces with views over the pool and to the sea. We'd definitely recommend staying in these flats, although they can be a little bit more exposed when the wind gets up. It's only a short (~10 minute) walk into Plakias town centre which is fairly quiet and peaceful and has a number of restaurants to eat in. Plakias beach itself is lovely and well worth spending the day there. Overall, we had a lovely time here and its a great location to use as a base to explore some of the excellent nearby beaches.
Cons: There is a lot of building work currently going on in and around the new sections of the resort and the noise from this did disrupt things on occasion. Unfortunately we were also there during a period of extended wind and this can also be pretty disruptive, with some extreme exfoliation on some of the beaches! Depending on the wind direction though, you can still find some more sheltered beaches in the area.
6,7 Good
Pros: Going out.
Cons: The electricity been cut off 3 days between 10:30am till 1:30pm. Arrived at 11pm which we missed a day....then asked to wait at reception for 3 hours for our transfer back to the airport.

10,0 Excellent
Pros: Proximity to beaches and restaurants . Friendly welcome , parking close to room . Fridge in the room had been turned on and was ice cold .
Cons: All good
9,6 Excellent
Pros: The people who are running the hotel are lovely, very warm and welcoming. The view from the room was excellent. The room itself was very clean and all the amenities were of excellent quality.
Cons: The breakfast variety as well as the overall quality of the items offered were disappointing really. The restaurant space where breakfast was served was lovely, but a bit 'standard' or dull. Unfortunately, the sheer volume of bees flying around and literally CONSTANTLY landing on our table, plates and food was detrimental to the overall breakfast experience. As a result, we only had breakfast once, although we stayed for 4 nights. I would recommend that the managers review the quality (e.g. better bread, juice, fried eggs!!!) and the variety of the breakfast, to match the quality of the facilities of the hotel (e.g. the rooms are of very high standard). Importantly, I would recommend that they review what they offer for breakfast and use mostly local Cretan food and drinks (e.g. kaltsounia). This would add a Cretan 'flavour' in the breakfast experience! Another way to add value could be by labelling the items on offer at the buffet so that people know what they are, and by offering gluten free or vegan options. All this could be complemented by adding some decoration with traditional Cretan artefacts (e.g. from traditional Cretan homes), or adding some light Cretan (acoustic) music in the background to improve the ambience of the environment.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Breakfast was great, and taken outside overlooking the sea. Fabulous. The staff couldn't have been nicer or more helpful/ This was our second stay and we will definitely be returning.
Cons: We found everything very satisfactory.
8,8 Excellent
Pros: Nice view from the terrace and good location for going to different beaches
Cons: I would advice to charge something more and do not charge for the safe.

9,1 Excellent
Pros: Well located, clean and friendly staff. Rooms are nice but being woken by ordinary conversation at 2am when the next door neighbors came home from the bar and talked for an hour was not nice. There is no sound insulation between rooms 3 and 4.
Cons: Loud neighbors and no sound insulation.
6,0 Good
Pros: Good location. Extremely clean. Nice bedroom with comfortable beds. Good modern bathroom. Good shower. Fair size balcony. Olga the receptionist was pleasant and helpful.
Cons: Noisy air condition. No insect screen on patio door. Breakfast room was lovely with views of the sea. BUT it would be nice to arrive in the morning for breakfast to laid up tables with more friendlier and more happy staff. Everything was on a do it yourself system. Standard of food and the selection provided for breakfast was poor. Essentially the whole breakfast experience needs an overhaul. For this reason we would not return.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: The staff was incredible and the location is fantastic. Amazing breakfast buffet with beautiful ocean views.
Cons: Loved everything

The staff is discrete and helpfull. Especially Olga, the receptionist, so nice to talk to and always with a smile on her face. We will surely return
Cons: The beds are a bit to hard for us.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: This is our second visit at Lamon Hotel with my fiancé. This place is absolutely perfect! Olga gave us an amazing room with view to the sea this time. She also has the best tips on where to go and what to visit. The area is perfect for hiking. The following day we enjoyed breakfast at the restaurant having this amazing view to the sea even here. The food was delicious with lots of pastry options, Greek yogurt with fruits, meat and different kind of cheese, fresh eggs and omelets, all were tasty. The hotel is super clean and our rooms were cleaned daily to a high standard. We would definitely stay here again. We felt so genuinely welcomed, as the staff were all very friendly. If you’re looking for a peaceful, romantic getaway this is definitely the place to be!!

10,0 Excellent
Pros: This hotel was in the perfect location in Plakias with just a short walk to the restaurant and shops of Plakias and very close to the sea and beach. It had beautifully kept gardens and the interior was tastefully decorated with interesting artwork here and there. The breakfast was excellent with a very good variety of any kind of breakfast food. The staff were very polite and helpful.
Cons: Perhaps slightly noisy air-conditioning unit.
9,6 Excellent
Pros: The staff was very very helpful and the food exceeded our expectations
Cons: The size of the room and the bathroom
8,8 Excellent
Pros: Wonderful hotel - lovely staff, super food, great location,
Cons: Our bathroom was rather cramped, with little space to shower
9,6 Excellent
Pros: The hotel was exceptionally well run and the staff extremely friendly and helpful. The beds including pillows exceptionally comfortable. A fridge in our room was most welcome too. There was a safety security box in the room for which there was a charge of 4 Euros per day for.
Cons: I booked a superior double room with a double bed. I also requested a sea view if possible but was informed a sea view was not possible. There was only one thing that disappointed me. The photo on line showed a balcony large enough to accommodate my yoga matt. Upon arrival at 11pm the receptionist explained that our room was a superior room plus she had "upgraded" our the room so we had a sea view. However the room she allocated us was tiny, only big enough to hold two single beds, had the tiniest of balconies and half a sea view. This was not a superior room and nor did it have a double bed. The room was changed to a slightly bigger room holding a double bed, plus a single bed with a sea view and again a tiny balcony. There are rooms with a spacious balcony but one has to book early and request specifically to get one of those. The pictures on line are somewhat misleading if this aspect is important to you.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Excellent choice and quality of food
9,6 Excellent
Pros: Great location and all staff very friendly Will definitely be back to this lovely resort
Cons: Orange juice was disappointing Man selling oranges opposite the hotel so cheap and could easily make freshly squeezed juice

Pros: Nice people, nice rooms, nice breakfast! Eyerthing was perfect, nothing more to say! :)
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Centrally Located. Right in the Centre. Best, clean, balcony. I took the last room available. So I was on the first floor with the balcony facing the garden. I would suggest to take the second floor if available. All rooms seem to have balconies. Their is a parking lot for the clients, 20 steps away from the hotel steps. Very convenient. I recommend this sparkling clean hotel and well designed. The breakfast is served either in the back garden or in the interior restaurant. Breakfast is quite basic. For a vegan, tomatoes, cucumber, olives and bread and variety of jams. For non vegans cereals, toast, egg and bacon and cheese
Cons: Breakfast as a very small options for everyone. But their is a market across the street for more possible options.

Cons: WiFi signal in the rooms should be improved.
5,8 Okay
Pros: Great location, very nice beach
Cons: the refrigerator was not working when we checked in and when i informed the manager his first reaction was that he is not a magicien and he cannot watch every guest to check somebody did something wrong and now it doesn't work!!! Quiet hotel, the price is too high as it old but the location is excellent!
5,4 Okay
Pros: peacefull position in walking distance from Ammoudi bay, 10 minutes driving from Plakias center.
Cons: they have two apartment, only one of them is worth to stay. the one we had had no day light exept a small window overlooking the mountain. Even in the bedroom the door to the small terrace had a wall in front of it. No light at all in the flat! moreover the airconditioning filters were not cleaned properly and we had to turn it off. We had no light in the apartment for some hours during the evening: they wanted to fixed it the day after but we had to insist to have someone solving the problem during the same evening.
9,6 Excellent
Pros: Quiet area, close to the Ammoudi beach (3 min walk). Kind and friendly hosts. Cleaning lady is thorough, so the room was clean every day. The beds are comfortable. Parking is good under the trees.
Cons: Breakfast could be more varied. More vegetables and fruits.
7,9 Good
Pros: We really liked our stay at the Ammoudi hotel. The family atmosphere is very nice, the rooms are clean and we love the location.
7,9 Good
Pros: We had a little problem finding the place, we came from Klisidi beach direction and there was a very bad road and no signs. I called the owner and she very kindly gave me the directions. The road is well marked and good from the town Lefkogeia. It was our navigation's fault. The apartment was big and clean, the shower small, as it is usual in Greece, a lot of parking spaces. The owners were very nice, but only one girl speaks English well. We had breakfast and it was ok, it was served and I noticed that the couple that stayed there for a week also got some vegetables, but we didn't. We stayed there only for one night. :-) On our check out there was a problem because the money was taken from my bank account but not transferred to the owner's, so we had to wait for about half an hour, but it certainly wasn't their fault. All in all the stay was fine.
Cons: It would not be fair to say that there were things we didn't like. It is obvious that the family tries hard to please the guests. So I would certainly recommend everyone to stay there. There is a beach right there if you want to just relax, or you can go with a car visit some near by places.
8,3 Excellent
Pros: Good hotel for family, in a quiet location with easy access to the beach. The staff was super friendly, always smiling. Excellent dinner with home made food. Plakias village is around 5 mins drive.

Cons: Nothing. All good.
8,3 Excellent
Pros: The staff make the hotel. They were really great The swimming pool is really nice to swim in
Cons: The most important thing is safety and the balcony closes with just a hook—very easy to jimmy open with a bent hook via the open slatted shutters My room was ground floor and on the road so I just didn’t feel safe. When I asked about this I was just told the area is safe. But A woman was recently raped and murdered in another safe area on Crete so I don’t think it is okay to have a door that does not securely lock Other than that the hotel is fine—although my bathroom was very jaded

Pros: Great everything
6,7 Good
Pros: Great location, very comfortable beds, coffee machine in the room. Friendly hosts. Close to tavernas and cafes for breakfast, dinner etc. Close to the sea.
Cons: Small room, small balcony. The bathroom was a wet room which is okay but it means that when you shower you either drench the room or become attached to the shower curtain. Okay for a night or so but would recommend staying in one of the larger rooms facing the sea if you were staying for longer.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Perfect location on the beachfront, close to all restaurants, shops, bus stop, etc. Parking always available in front on the street or elle there are a couple of lots nearby. Very kind staff and great value.

Thalassa House Apartments - Plakias - Building

9,6 Excellent
Pros: Fantastic modern apartment. Very spacious. Close to the village amenities and beaches. Lovely friendly staff.
Cons: We were in the ground floor apartment. High hedge spoiled a fantastic view. Needs keeping cut to half the hight.
8,3 Excellent
Pros: Great location and wonderful views from terrace. Lady who cleans the rooms is lovely, very helpful and friendly. Apartment is large and spacious and short walk from the bars and tavernas in Plakias, very close to a nice beach.
Cons: No real dislikes other than kitchen could do with a few more utensils /pans etc. We ate out every night but would struggle if you wanted to cook a meal in. A decent breadboard and knife would have been useful!
9,2 Excellent
Pros: We were self-catering. The apartment was spacious and well-equipped (except for the kitchen where items were a bit random). The washing machine was a great plus. The sun loungers, the grassy lawn in front of the property were excellent! The furnishing was very modern and functional, the beds comfortable and clean.
Cons: As we were six people there should have been at least six of each (plates, cups, bowls ...). There was no dish rack to dry dishes (with six people you cannot simply stack everything onto a pile). We got the impression that the floors were not properly cleaned, just a quick brush over. The 'third' bedroom had only a small window which would have benefited from some kind of insect screen so that it would have been possible to sleep by an open window without fear of unwelcome visitors. The cleaner seems to have thrown out a plastic bag which contained some dirty washing - just carelessness.

Pros: Nice place with view! Big enough and very clean rooms!
Cons: In one of the two rooms the mattresses weren’t comfortable
8,8 Excellent
Pros: Close to cafes, restaurants and shops. Beaches across the road. Free parking beside the hotel. Good size room with beach view.
7,5 Good
Pros: The room was spotlessly clean and looked as if it had barely been used. All kitchen equipment looked new. There was a lovely view of the sea just over the road and the location was quiet although very central, above a restaurant and near to shops and cafes. Parking was easy at a reserved area at the side of the hotel. The staff were very friendly.
Cons: The room was small with a lot of space occupied by a very large, family-sized wardrobe. There was nowhere to put a suitcase (other than on the floor) - no surfaces to use for writing, playing cards, or just for putting things. The only table space (apart from the little table on the small balcony) was 30 x 50 cms. The kitchenette, which was advertised as fully equipped, was inadequate with nowhere to prepare food, no draining area and very little cooking equipment, consisting of a large saucepan and frying pan (too large to be used together on the tiny camping cooker) and minimal cutlery. No tea-towel, breadknife, cooking spatula, chopping board etc. There was a safety issue as the single electric socket for kettle and cooker was situated very close to the sink and water taps. We were on the second floor with several steps to walk up carrying suitcases. Instructions for the air conditioner would have been helpful.

Pros: everything was perfect - had a very nice stay
7,9 Good
Pros: It is a nice hotel with well equipped and very clean room right next to the beach. The parking is safe. Everything is close (restaurants, shops, and sandy beach). The owner is very kind, it is a pity that the hired staff is not very professional. The sea-view rooms has beautiful view to the beach. The other side... well nice view to the hills but we could not enjoy it because of the constant wind from the gorge.
Cons: We had a little confusion because of some system issue with our booking (we booked with breakfast but actually this hotel does not offer buffet breakfast. You can order a'la carte breakfast only for extra price). Not the fault of the hotel but unfortunately the staff did not handle it properly. One of them had no solution only told that "sorry, it is system fault". The next day the other colleague told she will speak with the manager but did not do. Fortunately when we checked out the owner had been at the reception and solved it kindly (thank you:). Other issue is the wind... If you want to use the balcony choose the sea view! The mountain side may need a glass wall to cover the wind.

10,0 Excellent
Pros: This is a fantastic little find in a unique south coast setting on Crete. In a very scenic location overlooking a lovely pebble beach, with a sand swimming beach just a couple of minutes walk away in the next little bay, for a quiet get away place to stay this couldn't be better. The facilities were comfortable and lovely, light, clean, modern and beautifully designed in a seascape style overlooking the gardens and sea. Adjacent is their little tavern just by the water. They didn't do evening meals (wide range of dishes are available at a great tarverna just an easy walk along in the next bay) but breakfast is unbelievable with fabulous food that just kept on coming! Excellent value and a memorable place to stay.
Cons: Wind came up very strongly when we were there making it somewhat breezy to sit outside for an evening beer. But nevertheless had a lovely swim and by morning it was calming down.
8,8 Excellent
Pros: Great breakfast, close to the beach, quiet place for people looking to escape busy resorts. You need a car to get here, but you need one to visit Crete anyways.
Cons: A bit too noisy at times due to small kids in other rooms.

Pros: Proximity to beaches and restaurants . Friendly welcome , parking close to room . Fridge in the room had been turned on and was ice cold .
Cons: All good
9,6 Excellent
Pros: The people who are running the hotel are lovely, very warm and welcoming. The view from the room was excellent. The room itself was very clean and all the amenities were of excellent quality.
Cons: The breakfast variety as well as the overall quality of the items offered were disappointing really. The restaurant space where breakfast was served was lovely, but a bit 'standard' or dull. Unfortunately, the sheer volume of bees flying around and literally CONSTANTLY landing on our table, plates and food was detrimental to the overall breakfast experience. As a result, we only had breakfast once, although we stayed for 4 nights. I would recommend that the managers review the quality (e.g. better bread, juice, fried eggs!!!) and the variety of the breakfast, to match the quality of the facilities of the hotel (e.g. the rooms are of very high standard). Importantly, I would recommend that they review what they offer for breakfast and use mostly local Cretan food and drinks (e.g. kaltsounia). This would add a Cretan 'flavour' in the breakfast experience! Another way to add value could be by labelling the items on offer at the buffet so that people know what they are, and by offering gluten free or vegan options. All this could be complemented by adding some decoration with traditional Cretan artefacts (e.g. from traditional Cretan homes), or adding some light Cretan (acoustic) music in the background to improve the ambience of the environment.

Pros: Breakfast was great, and taken outside overlooking the sea. Fabulous. The staff couldn't have been nicer or more helpful/ This was our second stay and we will definitely be returning.

Pros: Well located, clean and friendly staff. Rooms are nice but being woken by ordinary conversation at 2am when the next door neighbors came home from the bar and talked for an hour was not nice. There is no sound insulation between rooms 3 and 4.
Cons: Loud neighbors and no sound insulation.
6,0 Good
Pros: Good location. Extremely clean. Nice bedroom with comfortable beds. Good modern bathroom. Good shower. Fair size balcony. Olga the receptionist was pleasant and helpful.
Cons: Noisy air condition. No insect screen on patio door. Breakfast room was lovely with views of the sea. BUT it would be nice to arrive in the morning for breakfast to laid up tables with more friendlier and more happy staff. Everything was on a do it yourself system. Standard of food and the selection provided for breakfast was poor. Essentially the whole breakfast experience needs an overhaul. For this reason we would not return.

Pros: This is our second visit at Lamon Hotel with my fiancé. This place is absolutely perfect! Olga gave us an amazing room with view to the sea this time. She also has the best tips on where to go and what to visit. The area is perfect for hiking. The following day we enjoyed breakfast at the restaurant having this amazing view to the sea even here. The food was delicious with lots of pastry options, Greek yogurt with fruits, meat and different kind of cheese, fresh eggs and omelets, all were tasty. The hotel is super clean and our rooms were cleaned daily to a high standard. We would definitely stay here again. We felt so genuinely welcomed, as the staff were all very friendly. If you’re looking for a peaceful, romantic getaway this is definitely the place to be!!

Pros: Centrally Located. Right in the Centre. Best, clean, balcony. I took the last room available. So I was on the first floor with the balcony facing the garden. I would suggest to take the second floor if available. All rooms seem to have balconies. Their is a parking lot for the clients, 20 steps away from the hotel steps. Very convenient. I recommend this sparkling clean hotel and well designed. The breakfast is served either in the back garden or in the interior restaurant. Breakfast is quite basic. For a vegan, tomatoes, cucumber, olives and bread and variety of jams. For non vegans cereals, toast, egg and bacon and cheese
Cons: Breakfast as a very small options for everyone. But their is a market across the street for more possible options.
