Our small charming family-run hotel Alianthos Beach Hotel is located in Plakias, a lovely traditional village in the south coast of Crete, famous for its beautiful beaches and the amazing countryside area: gorges, small rivers, olive and orange groves and beautiful mountains around. Our hotel has been a favourite for tourists for more than 25 years, offering a cosy, relaxing and truly memorable holiday and perfectly combines the traditional Cretan style with modern comfort and convenience. It is famous for its ideal position, on the sea-front road of the village overlooking the crystal waters of the amazing sandy beach, the breath-taking view to the Plakias bay and the Libyan Sea, the hospitality and the high-quality accommodation and services. All of which combined with reasonable prices makes our hotel very attractive to our guests. We invite you to our hotel to experience the cretan hospitality, to share the culture and the history of our place, to explore the friendly villages of south Crete, to enjoy the beautiful sea, the bustling cities with nightlife and shopping and the holiday activities such as sea sports, trekking, countryside and mountain walks.
