We have just returned from a weeks break here, we found the staff nothing but helpful, friendly and attentive. The food was always good. Some reviews on here complained of the all inclusive bar being one bar for the day and one for the evening, but we didn't find this a problem. We could always get a sunbed. We upgraded...

Me and my sister just got back from Porto Platanias and we had the absolute best time! Read other reviews and I think you get out of a holiday what you put in. We made sure we had the best time even though we recognise it was low season. It's in an excellent location; we went on a boat out...

I took my mum to this resort for a four night relaxing getaway. The entire resort had a nice lay out and was very clean. All staff were friendly and helpful, there are plenty of bars spread over the complex but be aware that the all inclusive wristband only works at certain bars at certain times. Our room was spacious...

Stayed for 4 nights, 5 days as part of a girls holiday away. Rooms were very clean and tidy. Went half board, food was nice, each evening was a different theme. Lovely hotel to stay in, central to shops ans bars and well thought of by locals when we told them where we were staying.
