First of all,the location of the hotel is excellent - close to the center, but far enough to be quiet. We have very nice room, with unobstructed sea view; clean and comfortable. Wifi was working quite well. The breakfast was almost same every day, but good choice of food. The owners were very kind and helpful, so we had nothing...

The hotel is not centrally located in plakias, but it is close enough, and at the same time it is in very quite location. The view from a sea view room in the second floor is absolutely amazing! Also the room and public areas are very clean. Not too keen for the welcoming from the woman owner, but we do...

The location is great. It is not more than 5 min walking to the center. The view is amazing and, what is more important, they have excellent breakfast! Stayed there for one month, and experienced NO problem at all. If we come back, we will definitively consider staying there again.

As other reviewers have noted Horizon Beach is clean, very modern with decent sized rooms, nice views from the balcony (some rooms have a huge terrace). The hotel is family owned and a personal touch is apparent. the location is good too - as it is an easy walk to town and a beach is just across the street -...

We had a nice experience in this place. Although, in the beginning, they did not understand that we are a gay couple, we got a very nice room. The hotel is nicely apart of the „big town“, close enough but quiet for sleeping. Very nice breakfast. Nice beach just in front. We really recommend.

I don't know official classification, but I don´t know, why hotel has only 2 stars. It was really great and the view from our balcony... unforgettable, nice room, rich breakfest. Hotel was quiet, close to the fun area by walk (max. 10 min). Wonderful beaches everywhere, sure ideal with a car. Thanks for our lovely Plakias´memories.
