    Godt men ikke prangene

    Hotellet ligger lidt langt ude fra Platanias, men helt perfekt hvis man gerne vil have fred og ro. Der kører busser hvert 20'ende minut ind til byen og det koster kun 1,80 Euro pr person. Hotellet er lidt slidt. Pools'ene er desværre iskolde. Morgenmaden er ok - men bestemt heller ikke mere end det. Synes ikke det er et 4 stjernet hotel, men nok nærmere et 3+
