9.0 Excellent
Pros: Good chose, nice location and timing also convinient
Cons: No drinking water available in resort between meals. It could be easily sorted if add a tap with filtrated water next to bar area.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Excellent breakfast. Beautiful and unique location. Variety of activities and facilities to choose from. Choice of swimming pools and sunbed areas were fantastic. Wonderful massages from the Ladies in the SPA. Yoga studio superb!
Cons: Hard to find fault. If anything, as non all inclusive guests, having to pay for every drink separately at the pool bar and not being able to charge it to the room was a little tiresome.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The sea view was amazing. The room was spacious and the balcony as well. The room and the facilities were exactly as in the pictures. Friendly stuff.
Cons: The internet was very slow and sometimes we didn’t have connection at all. The tv as well but it is because of the location. We didn’t like the animateur’s sketches, we found it childish.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: The pools were great, enjoyed Kalypso dive center, the food was good. The balcony view to the water was great. Staff is friendly.
Cons: The bathroom smelled very bad it needed a deep clean as well. The door to the balcony was broken, the sink water was running all the time, we could hear the people in the room next to us, the beds were uncomfortable, we were not given a key to the safe. There was no WiFi in the room.
6.7 Good
Pros: The location is amazing! The beds are comfortable and the staff very accommodating. The rooms were clean.
Cons: The breakfast was subpar. I saw a member of staff drop serving tongs on the floor then pick them up and use them. The coffee comes out of an automatic coffee machine. The quality of the food was poor. No wifi in the rooms, only in 'public' areas. The nightly show was very loud and went late into the evening.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Massage. Ok but it was up a lot of steps Paid for an evening meal. Excellent value high quality buffet.
Cons: A lot of steps. Obviously couldn't be avoided because of the location but still....A lot of steps everywhere

Cons: No Wi-Fi in the room AT ALL. Old beds and matrasses (our backs hurt). Dirty old bathrooms. No sea handrails. Slippery stairs by the sea. No bottom. No lifeguards and lifebuoys. Water quality at the restaurant is awful. The same dishes every day.

Cons: A lot of things has to bee reenewed, bathroom was worn out.
Plakias Resorts - Plakias - Building

9.0 Excellent (389 reviews)
C$ 128+
Overview Reviews
Located in Agios Vasileios, Plakias Resorts is by the sea, within a 15-minute drive of Plakias Beach and Kourtaliotiko Gorge. Featured amenities include a business center, a 24-hour front desk, and multilingual staff. For a surcharge, guests may use a roundtrip airport shuttle (available 24 hours) and a ferry terminal shuttle.
7.1 Good
Pros: Good location and well kept, with pleasant staff.
Cons: Paid extra for sea views but it’s not worth it. I ended up with a view of the building site opposite and told the sea was in the distance. ( which was true). While this building work is on going they need to re address the costs of the rooms and don’t market these as sea views. Save your money.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: the resort is modern and clean. Personnel is helpful and tried their best to help with the issues we had with the room and weather (below).
Cons: the rooms from the north side are facing construction yard with a lot of noise and dust (and the negative effect is amplified by the strong wind). These rooms shouldn't be rented or customers should we warned about this. Also, wind was very strong during our stay and we couldn't get proper sleep because of it. We asked to change the room and after 2 days we got replacement room on the other part of the resort that was better - brighter, calmer and not facing construction yard. Maybe it was bad luck but wind was unbearable (i.e. we couldn't eat on the terrace).
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The resort looks great, has two good sized pools and nice vegetation. The staff are very welcoming, helpful and kind. The beach is across the street and there is an area with free sunbeds and umbrellas for hotel residents. Our room was spacious and well furnished - we had an apartment, which included a well furnished kitchen and a washing machine. It is self catering but breakfast can be provided upon request.
Cons: The Plakias Bay was very windy while we were there (Northerly winds seem to particularly impact this Bay) - so much so that it made sitting on the beach unbearable after a while. What saved us was going to other nearby beaches - Souda Beach and Damnoni Beach in particular. The resort is not in Plakias itself, but in an area with lots of new construction in progress - it wasn't loud, it just looked a bit grim. The expectation is that all or most of those buildings will be finished by 2020 though.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Great large, clean, modern new apartment. Building quality above Greek expectation. Staff were really helpfull and service minded. Cleaning was very good Large, nice and clean swimming pool
Cons: niets
8.0 Excellent
Pros: We enjoy being so close to the beach, even when it is windy! And if it is too bad, we can always find shelter in the garden! The balconies outside the apartments are also quite private and large enough that you can eat outside if you like.. We like the walk into town most evenings to choose a nice restaurant, or once in a while climbing uphill to Mirtos to look at the wonderful sunset accompanying a really good meal. Or just walking across the street to our local favourite! Going to Preveli for a day trip is a must, and we still have some planned walking excursions in the neighborhood to do. Since we have been in Plakias and the area before, we can relax and do exactly what we like - no rush! But for those who want some more action, there are gorges not too far away---- For us Plakias is perfect the way it is now!
Cons: Can't think of anything! Maybe the idea that there is much building activity going on, but that is of course very selfish. We only hope that it is the people of Plakias who will profit from this, and not some foreign investors!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: It's a beach hotel , close to the town Plakias, has 2 pools and a baby pool. Pretty good. Quiet.
Cons: The bed could be bigger.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Perfect location for our family of 8. We had our own swimming pool and the two children aged 3 and 5 could also swim in the pool for children between the two huge pools! And on top of it all, the sea was just across the road.
Cons: it could not have been any better!
8.8 Excellent
Pros: We were allocated a flat in the new build section above the main existing property- these are lovely and well furnished and have great terraces with views over the pool and to the sea. We'd definitely recommend staying in these flats, although they can be a little bit more exposed when the wind gets up. It's only a short (~10 minute) walk into Plakias town centre which is fairly quiet and peaceful and has a number of restaurants to eat in. Plakias beach itself is lovely and well worth spending the day there. Overall, we had a lovely time here and its a great location to use as a base to explore some of the excellent nearby beaches.
Cons: There is a lot of building work currently going on in and around the new sections of the resort and the noise from this did disrupt things on occasion. Unfortunately we were also there during a period of extended wind and this can also be pretty disruptive, with some extreme exfoliation on some of the beaches! Depending on the wind direction though, you can still find some more sheltered beaches in the area.
6.7 Good
Pros: Going out.
Cons: The electricity been cut off 3 days between 10:30am till 1:30pm. Arrived at 11pm which we missed a day....then asked to wait at reception for 3 hours for our transfer back to the airport.

6.0 Good
Pros: Location, clean, great breakfast, very friendly staff.
Cons: Room was not ok for 4. 2 had to sleep in the living, which is fine, but we could not switch off the lights outside. No curtains. Way too light. Not made for sleeping in the living. Enough space, sleeping bed/sofa was good. But is was absolutely not comfortable with 4 as it was not made for sleeping.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: New and confortable
Cons: Breakfast
9.6 Excellent
Pros: At Belvedere everything was completely new, all the instalations: elevator, equipments, toilets, furnitures, building were perfects! The breakfast was correct. Evelokia is a person who managed very well, she did everything that was possible and understood my mobility problems. She is really a nice person. If we go to Plakias again, we’ll stay in this place! I recommend.
Cons: In the first night they accommodated us in another building called Sea View apartments, which we didn’t like because it was downgraded compared with our reservation and was not told us before the arrival. After our complains with some problems, they moved us to the correct place. It was stressed because we stayed only 2 nights.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Our apartment was located on the ground floor and was incredibly spacious and modern. We particularly enjoyed the swimming pool and day beds. The reception staff were friendly and helpful and there was a nice selection of local breakfast items served each day. Plakias beach and the restaurants are a few moments walk away. We were able to park our car right next to our apartment, which was convenient.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: We had a great time in Belvedere. It is in the centre of Plakias, just a few meters to the beach. Appartment was big and had amazing specius terrace, king size bed with excellent mattress. Extremely clean (thanks to the ladies in charge of cleaning). Big thanks to the woman who makes the breakfast which is great! Very friendly stuff especially Eleni!
Cons: The breakfast room was very hot
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The apartments are huge (if there's only two of you), very clean and tastefully furnished. The kitchen has everything you could want, including an oven, a hob and a freezer. The pool is not much used, so it is almost your own private space - and they have those double recliner bed-things. The staff were all very pleasant and helpful.
Cons: The breakfast was good - except for the coffee from the machine - but there could have been a wider selection. You need to know before you go that Belvedere Apartments are built behind and on top of a supermarket and that the views are of the neighbouring buildings before you see the sea or the mountains.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Very clean and new lodging. Loved the outdoor terrace with comfy furniture. The staff was very friendly and the breakfast plentiful and delicious. Location was excellent very close to Plakias beach. The linens were plush.
Cons: The bed was large but had the crack in the middle as often is case in Europe.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The place was beautiful, and suuuuper comfy. In front of the beach pretty much and we so many restaurants and cafes just a 5 min walk. We were there in low season and there was almost no tourist but it was a lovely warm day. we only stay for one night for my boyfriend birthday. the balcony is big, and the bed incredible comfy. the staff was very friendly.

Pros: Very clean and very well equiped studio

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Proximity to beaches and restaurants . Friendly welcome , parking close to room . Fridge in the room had been turned on and was ice cold .
Cons: All good
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The people who are running the hotel are lovely, very warm and welcoming. The view from the room was excellent. The room itself was very clean and all the amenities were of excellent quality.
Cons: The breakfast variety as well as the overall quality of the items offered were disappointing really. The restaurant space where breakfast was served was lovely, but a bit 'standard' or dull. Unfortunately, the sheer volume of bees flying around and literally CONSTANTLY landing on our table, plates and food was detrimental to the overall breakfast experience. As a result, we only had breakfast once, although we stayed for 4 nights. I would recommend that the managers review the quality (e.g. better bread, juice, fried eggs!!!) and the variety of the breakfast, to match the quality of the facilities of the hotel (e.g. the rooms are of very high standard). Importantly, I would recommend that they review what they offer for breakfast and use mostly local Cretan food and drinks (e.g. kaltsounia). This would add a Cretan 'flavour' in the breakfast experience! Another way to add value could be by labelling the items on offer at the buffet so that people know what they are, and by offering gluten free or vegan options. All this could be complemented by adding some decoration with traditional Cretan artefacts (e.g. from traditional Cretan homes), or adding some light Cretan (acoustic) music in the background to improve the ambience of the environment.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Breakfast was great, and taken outside overlooking the sea. Fabulous. The staff couldn't have been nicer or more helpful/ This was our second stay and we will definitely be returning.
Cons: We found everything very satisfactory.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Nice view from the terrace and good location for going to different beaches
Cons: I would advice to charge something more and do not charge for the safe.

9.1 Excellent
Pros: Well located, clean and friendly staff. Rooms are nice but being woken by ordinary conversation at 2am when the next door neighbors came home from the bar and talked for an hour was not nice. There is no sound insulation between rooms 3 and 4.
Cons: Loud neighbors and no sound insulation.
6.0 Good
Pros: Good location. Extremely clean. Nice bedroom with comfortable beds. Good modern bathroom. Good shower. Fair size balcony. Olga the receptionist was pleasant and helpful.
Cons: Noisy air condition. No insect screen on patio door. Breakfast room was lovely with views of the sea. BUT it would be nice to arrive in the morning for breakfast to laid up tables with more friendlier and more happy staff. Everything was on a do it yourself system. Standard of food and the selection provided for breakfast was poor. Essentially the whole breakfast experience needs an overhaul. For this reason we would not return.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff was incredible and the location is fantastic. Amazing breakfast buffet with beautiful ocean views.
Cons: Loved everything

Cons: Room was not renovated. Poor lighting. Entrance was in the lobby. Bathroom was really basic, shower drain was not working properly.

The staff is discrete and helpfull. Especially Olga, the receptionist, so nice to talk to and always with a smile on her face. We will surely return
Cons: The beds are a bit to hard for us.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: This is our second visit at Lamon Hotel with my fiancé. This place is absolutely perfect! Olga gave us an amazing room with view to the sea this time. She also has the best tips on where to go and what to visit. The area is perfect for hiking. The following day we enjoyed breakfast at the restaurant having this amazing view to the sea even here. The food was delicious with lots of pastry options, Greek yogurt with fruits, meat and different kind of cheese, fresh eggs and omelets, all were tasty. The hotel is super clean and our rooms were cleaned daily to a high standard. We would definitely stay here again. We felt so genuinely welcomed, as the staff were all very friendly. If you’re looking for a peaceful, romantic getaway this is definitely the place to be!!

10.0 Excellent
Pros: This hotel was in the perfect location in Plakias with just a short walk to the restaurant and shops of Plakias and very close to the sea and beach. It had beautifully kept gardens and the interior was tastefully decorated with interesting artwork here and there. The breakfast was excellent with a very good variety of any kind of breakfast food. The staff were very polite and helpful.
Cons: Perhaps slightly noisy air-conditioning unit.
9.6 Excellent

Cons: The size of the room and the bathroom
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Wonderful hotel - lovely staff, super food, great location,
Cons: Our bathroom was rather cramped, with little space to shower
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The hotel was exceptionally well run and the staff extremely friendly and helpful. The beds including pillows exceptionally comfortable. A fridge in our room was most welcome too. There was a safety security box in the room for which there was a charge of 4 Euros per day for.
Cons: I booked a superior double room with a double bed. I also requested a sea view if possible but was informed a sea view was not possible. There was only one thing that disappointed me. The photo on line showed a balcony large enough to accommodate my yoga matt. Upon arrival at 11pm the receptionist explained that our room was a superior room plus she had "upgraded" our the room so we had a sea view. However the room she allocated us was tiny, only big enough to hold two single beds, had the tiniest of balconies and half a sea view. This was not a superior room and nor did it have a double bed. The room was changed to a slightly bigger room holding a double bed, plus a single bed with a sea view and again a tiny balcony. There are rooms with a spacious balcony but one has to book early and request specifically to get one of those. The pictures on line are somewhat misleading if this aspect is important to you.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Excellent choice and quality of food
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Great location and all staff very friendly Will definitely be back to this lovely resort
Cons: Orange juice was disappointing Man selling oranges opposite the hotel so cheap and could easily make freshly squeezed juice

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Centrally Located. Right in the Centre. Best, clean, balcony. I took the last room available. So I was on the first floor with the balcony facing the garden. I would suggest to take the second floor if available. All rooms seem to have balconies. Their is a parking lot for the clients, 20 steps away from the hotel steps. Very convenient. I recommend this sparkling clean hotel and well designed. The breakfast is served either in the back garden or in the interior restaurant. Breakfast is quite basic. For a vegan, tomatoes, cucumber, olives and bread and variety of jams. For non vegans cereals, toast, egg and bacon and cheese
Cons: Breakfast as a very small options for everyone. But their is a market across the street for more possible options.

Pros: Owners are very kind, and helpful. Location of the hotel is great, 5 min walk to the Ammoudi Beach and another 5 to the smaller -Ammoudaki Beach. There is restaurant in the hotel, and 2 beach bars - one on each beach, so you don’t have to go far for food and drinks supplies.
Cons: WiFi signal in the rooms should be improved.
5.8 Okay
Pros: Great location, very nice beach
Cons: the refrigerator was not working when we checked in and when i informed the manager his first reaction was that he is not a magicien and he cannot watch every guest to check somebody did something wrong and now it doesn't work!!! Quiet hotel, the price is too high as it old but the location is excellent!
5.4 Okay
Pros: peacefull position in walking distance from Ammoudi bay, 10 minutes driving from Plakias center.
Cons: they have two apartment, only one of them is worth to stay. the one we had had no day light exept a small window overlooking the mountain. Even in the bedroom the door to the small terrace had a wall in front of it. No light at all in the flat! moreover the airconditioning filters were not cleaned properly and we had to turn it off. We had no light in the apartment for some hours during the evening: they wanted to fixed it the day after but we had to insist to have someone solving the problem during the same evening.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Quiet area, close to the Ammoudi beach (3 min walk). Kind and friendly hosts. Cleaning lady is thorough, so the room was clean every day. The beds are comfortable. Parking is good under the trees.
Cons: Breakfast could be more varied. More vegetables and fruits.
7.9 Good
Pros: We really liked our stay at the Ammoudi hotel. The family atmosphere is very nice, the rooms are clean and we love the location.
7.9 Good
Pros: We had a little problem finding the place, we came from Klisidi beach direction and there was a very bad road and no signs. I called the owner and she very kindly gave me the directions. The road is well marked and good from the town Lefkogeia. It was our navigation's fault. The apartment was big and clean, the shower small, as it is usual in Greece, a lot of parking spaces. The owners were very nice, but only one girl speaks English well. We had breakfast and it was ok, it was served and I noticed that the couple that stayed there for a week also got some vegetables, but we didn't. We stayed there only for one night. :-) On our check out there was a problem because the money was taken from my bank account but not transferred to the owner's, so we had to wait for about half an hour, but it certainly wasn't their fault. All in all the stay was fine.
Cons: It would not be fair to say that there were things we didn't like. It is obvious that the family tries hard to please the guests. So I would certainly recommend everyone to stay there. There is a beach right there if you want to just relax, or you can go with a car visit some near by places.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Good hotel for family, in a quiet location with easy access to the beach. The staff was super friendly, always smiling. Excellent dinner with home made food. Plakias village is around 5 mins drive.

8.3 Excellent
Pros: The staff make the hotel. They were really great The swimming pool is really nice to swim in
Cons: The most important thing is safety and the balcony closes with just a hook—very easy to jimmy open with a bent hook via the open slatted shutters My room was ground floor and on the road so I just didn’t feel safe. When I asked about this I was just told the area is safe. But A woman was recently raped and murdered in another safe area on Crete so I don’t think it is okay to have a door that does not securely lock Other than that the hotel is fine—although my bathroom was very jaded

Cons: The bathroom shower - has it was over the spa with no shower curtain or shower screen, the floor would be flooded with water. We asked for extra towels to soak up the water but this was not ideal. Also we could not adjust the hot water which was way too hot. I therefore could not wash my hair. Kelly tried to help us but we still could not lower the temperature. Also, the room had no kettle or mugs so we could make a cup of tea. Next time we will ask for these items.

6.7 Good
Pros: Great location, very comfortable beds, coffee machine in the room. Friendly hosts. Close to tavernas and cafes for breakfast, dinner etc. Close to the sea.
Cons: Small room, small balcony. The bathroom was a wet room which is okay but it means that when you shower you either drench the room or become attached to the shower curtain. Okay for a night or so but would recommend staying in one of the larger rooms facing the sea if you were staying for longer.

6.0 Good
Pros: Location, clean, great breakfast, very friendly staff.
Cons: Room was not ok for 4. 2 had to sleep in the living, which is fine, but we could not switch off the lights outside. No curtains. Way too light. Not made for sleeping in the living. Enough space, sleeping bed/sofa was good. But is was absolutely not comfortable with 4 as it was not made for sleeping.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: New and confortable
Cons: Breakfast
9.6 Excellent
Pros: At Belvedere everything was completely new, all the instalations: elevator, equipments, toilets, furnitures, building were perfects! The breakfast was correct. Evelokia is a person who managed very well, she did everything that was possible and understood my mobility problems. She is really a nice person. If we go to Plakias again, we’ll stay in this place! I recommend.
Cons: In the first night they accommodated us in another building called Sea View apartments, which we didn’t like because it was downgraded compared with our reservation and was not told us before the arrival. After our complains with some problems, they moved us to the correct place. It was stressed because we stayed only 2 nights.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Our apartment was located on the ground floor and was incredibly spacious and modern. We particularly enjoyed the swimming pool and day beds. The reception staff were friendly and helpful and there was a nice selection of local breakfast items served each day. Plakias beach and the restaurants are a few moments walk away. We were able to park our car right next to our apartment, which was convenient.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: We had a great time in Belvedere. It is in the centre of Plakias, just a few meters to the beach. Appartment was big and had amazing specius terrace, king size bed with excellent mattress. Extremely clean (thanks to the ladies in charge of cleaning). Big thanks to the woman who makes the breakfast which is great! Very friendly stuff especially Eleni!
Cons: The breakfast room was very hot
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The apartments are huge (if there's only two of you), very clean and tastefully furnished. The kitchen has everything you could want, including an oven, a hob and a freezer. The pool is not much used, so it is almost your own private space - and they have those double recliner bed-things. The staff were all very pleasant and helpful.
Cons: The breakfast was good - except for the coffee from the machine - but there could have been a wider selection. You need to know before you go that Belvedere Apartments are built behind and on top of a supermarket and that the views are of the neighbouring buildings before you see the sea or the mountains.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Very clean and new lodging. Loved the outdoor terrace with comfy furniture. The staff was very friendly and the breakfast plentiful and delicious. Location was excellent very close to Plakias beach. The linens were plush.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: The place was beautiful, and suuuuper comfy. In front of the beach pretty much and we so many restaurants and cafes just a 5 min walk.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Proximity to beaches and restaurants . Friendly welcome , parking close to room . Fridge in the room had been turned on and was ice cold .
Cons: All good
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The people who are running the hotel are lovely, very warm and welcoming. The view from the room was excellent. The room itself was very clean and all the amenities were of excellent quality.
Cons: The breakfast variety as well as the overall quality of the items offered were disappointing really. The restaurant space where breakfast was served was lovely, but a bit 'standard' or dull. Unfortunately, the sheer volume of bees flying around and literally CONSTANTLY landing on our table, plates and food was detrimental to the overall breakfast experience. As a result, we only had breakfast once, although we stayed for 4 nights. I would recommend that the managers review the quality (e.g. better bread, juice, fried eggs!!!) and the variety of the breakfast, to match the quality of the facilities of the hotel (e.g. the rooms are of very high standard). Importantly, I would recommend that they review what they offer for breakfast and use mostly local Cretan food and drinks (e.g. kaltsounia). This would add a Cretan 'flavour' in the breakfast experience! Another way to add value could be by labelling the items on offer at the buffet so that people know what they are, and by offering gluten free or vegan options. All this could be complemented by adding some decoration with traditional Cretan artefacts (e.g. from traditional Cretan homes), or adding some light Cretan (acoustic) music in the background to improve the ambience of the environment.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Breakfast was great, and taken outside overlooking the sea. Fabulous. The staff couldn't have been nicer or more helpful/ This was our second stay and we will definitely be returning.
Cons: We found everything very satisfactory.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Nice view from the terrace and good location for going to different beaches

6.0 Good
Pros: Good location. Extremely clean. Nice bedroom with comfortable beds. Good modern bathroom. Good shower. Fair size balcony. Olga the receptionist was pleasant and helpful.
Cons: Noisy air condition. No insect screen on patio door. Breakfast room was lovely with views of the sea. BUT it would be nice to arrive in the morning for breakfast to laid up tables with more friendlier and more happy staff. Everything was on a do it yourself system. Standard of food and the selection provided for breakfast was poor. Essentially the whole breakfast experience needs an overhaul. For this reason we would not return.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: This is our second visit at Lamon Hotel with my fiancé. This place is absolutely perfect! Olga gave us an amazing room with view to the sea this time. She also has the best tips on where to go and what to visit. The area is perfect for hiking. The following day we enjoyed breakfast at the restaurant having this amazing view to the sea even here. The food was delicious with lots of pastry options, Greek yogurt with fruits, meat and different kind of cheese, fresh eggs and omelets, all were tasty. The hotel is super clean and our rooms were cleaned daily to a high standard. We would definitely stay here again. We felt so genuinely welcomed, as the staff were all very friendly. If you’re looking for a peaceful, romantic getaway this is definitely the place to be!!

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Centrally Located. Right in the Centre. Best, clean, balcony. I took the last room available. So I was on the first floor with the balcony facing the garden. I would suggest to take the second floor if available. All rooms seem to have balconies. Their is a parking lot for the clients, 20 steps away from the hotel steps. Very convenient. I recommend this sparkling clean hotel and well designed. The breakfast is served either in the back garden or in the interior restaurant. Breakfast is quite basic. For a vegan, tomatoes, cucumber, olives and bread and variety of jams. For non vegans cereals, toast, egg and bacon and cheese
Cons: Breakfast as a very small options for everyone. But their is a market across the street for more possible options.
