    Very good

    The room was actually quite nice, swimming pool rather small but clean and well maintained. The beach, shops, parking and restaurants are just a few steps from the door, so great location. Personnel is friendly and helpful, though always in a passive way rather than active. Once you ask they will try their best to help, but problems are sometimes ignored until brought to their attention. But maybe this is a general Greek thing ;) For the rest great value for money: not to expect too much, but good for what it is.

    Minor point is the shower that has no water screen or wall around it, flooding the bathroom time and again. There is a drain but most of the water never gets there. Breakfast is quite basic, maybe at least some variation would be good. Also the airco was not very reliable, but this might have been due to regular electricity problems on the island.

    Great value for money, clean, next to the beach. All rooms have a/c and balcony.

    Some rooms don't have refrigerators, as advertised. Pool sometimes gets dirty and is not cleaned frequently enough. Some bathrooms don't have a separate shower and can thus get messy when showering.

    The strongest point of this hotel is that located a few steps from the sea.

    Cleanliness is an issue for this hotel, especially the smell. A small renovation will improve a lot the total image of the hotel.

    Good

    Great location, right on the beach and free sunbeds if you eat at the hotel (just an omelette or breakfast qualifies). Also pool available, with free sunbeds.

    All a bit tired and shabby, but for the price no real complaints. If you want tea/coffee you need to bring your own travel kettle, and ice bags/tray for the fridge.

    Spent 7 days in a double room with breakfast for 60 euros in August 2011. The best think is the location, right on the beach and in village's centre. Old hotel recently renovated with a very small pool. The breakfast was continental but very poor in terms of quality and variety. A really 2 stars hotel with all staff friendly but not well trained, they were all immigrants and simply did their best. There is also a snack bar at the ground floor serving food which I would not recommend but it is cheap. The food offered has nothing to do with Crete. The number 1 restaurant in the area is "Platia" at the center of the Myrthios village, 2 km. Out of Plakias with superb views over the bay. Do not miss it, it serves reall, home made Cretan food and has reasonable prices.
