We stayed here 3 days at the end of April 2017. Everything was perfect. The staff was friendly and they offered us a room with a beautiful view over the sea and village. I don't know how it is at summer time but in spring everything is very quiet and peaceful. Don't expect a luxurieus resort: (fortunately) the rooms are basic which gives the hotel a charming atmosphere. The rooms are very clean and everything you need is there. A nice surprise was the breakfast which was more than what I expected in a basic Greek hotel and which you can take in the garden outside. If there is something to complain it is about the WiFi which was a bit unstable but who cares on vacation?

The price was very moderate:162 Euro's for 3 nights per room.

The hotel doesn't have a swimming pool but you find the beach across the street. Costs for 2 beds and an umbrella were 5 Euros but in this time of the year most chairs are for free. The village is at a nice 15 minutes walk along the sea. It has many nice restaurants where you can enjoy a lovely dinner at the seaside.

Stayed: April 2017, travelled with family

Plakias Bay Hotel is located at the eastern end of the beach road just a minute's walk from the best part of Plakias beach (which is also the clothes optional section). Rooms are basic but clean and comfortable. The owners and staff are delightful and the restaurant, open 3 nights a week when we stayed, is excellent. Highly recommended for value-for money. It is one kilometre walk to the main part of town, which is a bit tiring on a hot day.

My husband and I like authentic, non resort style hotels and Plakias Bay Hotel is just that. They offer all rooms with balconies of the ocean and town, wifi and air conditioning; no TV's. We booked for 2 nights and stayed for 9! Meals are offered on the terrace with views of the beach. Clean, comfortable rooms and friendly helpful staff; good breakfast buffet and delicious dinners all in a quiet, relaxing setting. Short walk to the beautiful beach, restaurants down the road or in town- at the end of the bay. Mainly Northern European and British tourists. Bathrooms are a little too small but we made do just fine.

We just drove to town with no real plans and saw the hotel shining like a beacon at the very end of the beach road. We were looking for somethung quiet but close enough to town...travelling with a two year old. They had a room for us that had a killer view of the bay and surrounding mountians. I personally liked the simplicity of the hotel, it captured the essence of crete, a simple island. Super easy to access other beaches from the hotel. Full huge breakfast included and also a restaurant serving dinner (maybe lunch too?). Nice staff and family running the place. Definitely plan on staying again.

Room Tip: Face the sea!!!

This family run hotel overlooks the quiet end of Plakias Bay. We also went or walks in the countryside right next to the hotel.
The weather for our stay was unseasonably chilly but we were provided with "the warmest room", extra blankets, and shown how to switch from air-conditioning to heating.
The breakfast was excellent with both hot and cold options, and when the weather warmed up we ate outside with views of the sea and mountains.
Nothing seemed to be too much trouble to the staff, and during the chilly weather a massive log fire was lit in the lounge which was both cheery and cosy.
"Mother" produced delicious soups, the highlight being "Easter lamb with herbs"
If we return to Crete, this is where we would choose to stay.

Room Tip: If the weather is cold, ask for a south facing room, otherwise choose a bay view (south West)
