The Plaza (Best Western) is great hotel in the ‘new’ town, centrally located within easy reach of the beaches, good bars and restaurants, mini markets and shops, Mandraki harbour and is about a 10 minute walk to the Old town. The large pool area with jacuzzi is lovely, has the sun all day and has a great bar serving food and playing contemporary sounds. The hotel provides pool towels. The open bar at the front of the hotel is also reasonably priced, fun, and the staff at both were great (special thanks to Anestis, Dimitri and Kostas). Breakfast was very good, with plenty of choice and a man making fresh Omelettes, Crepes etc. Coffee/Tea juice etc. is available from a machine. This time I was room 308 overlooking the road with partial sea-view and larger balcony than the pool-view rooms. Smoking not allowed on balcony. The TV channels are basically non-existent, but they did put on MotoGP in the main bar. What a great afternoon that was (hic!).
Check-out: after a day at the pool/beach you may use the bathroom downstairs that belongs to the hotel sauna if you require it.
Transfer pick up: if your transfer is ‘post office’ be aware this means it’s a coach so you must drag bags down to the main road (where all the big coaches stop).
It’s an easy walk to the beaches. NB. All have a stony entrance into the sea so take/buy aqua shoes and with a bit of a shelf you’ll soon be out of your depth, but it’s so buoyant you can just bob about with little effort. Wonderful!
There are a couple of mini-markets left out of the hotel and also Mandilara the pedestrianised area.
There are some excellent restaurants (with good red wine!) on Leontos Street, which is off 28 Oktovriou Street. Kerasma remains my favourite. less
