We stayed in the Planos Bay hotel in May 2016 and had a fantastic week holiday. We made amazing friends which we are still in touch with and visit on regular occasions. The water park is a short 5 minute walk from the hotel along a footpath and is great fun. We went as a family of 3 with a 10 year old daughter who absolutely loved this place. We felt safe and so did all the other guests. The snack bar serves food all day and is brilliant, especially for the kids who can just go over and order throughout the day instead of dining in the restaurant at lunchtime. The pool area was clean and safe and the animation team were fantastic and got us all involved in the games and entertainment. They made us feel part of one big family and we are still in touch with most of the team from Summer 2016. Tommy was our Favourite and was so full of energy every day and night. There was a kids club but our daughter chose not to go as she had so much fun in the waterpark most days. The evening meals weren't the best if i'm honest and we did choose to eat out on quite a few evenings. This didn't spoil it though and honestly i wouldn't let this put you off going. There is plenty to do inside and outside the hotel and is perfect for families.More
Best Holiday Ever!
Travelled for one week, all inclusive. The room was one of those that had not yet been refurbished but it was clean, the bathroom was modern and spacious and overall it had everything we needed as the point of our holiday was to experience the pool, the beach, the water park, some excursions, not the room all week! The staff were some of the friendliest staff I have ever had the pleasure of meeting, nothing was too much trouble for them. The restaurant offered plenty of food options, even enough to keep fussy kids satisfied. The pool area was great, with entertainment for the kids and plenty of loungers. The evening entertainment was good, with opportunity for people to mix or enjoy their own company. It was only a short walk into the main town which had plenty of bars and restaurants and there were several places open in which to book excursions. Definitely recommend the trip to smugglers cove, it was breathtaking. Hands down the best holiday I've had and I'm an ex travel agent and usually very hard to please.More
We are young group who went to visit Planos Bay Hotel for a week it was a great stay, the staff are lovely we had a few issues getting up most mornings so we asked reception to give us a call on some mornings and they did this without hesitation so that we could not miss our coach for excursions on various days It is a very modern hotel with lovely Marble decor we often came back to the hotel 2am in the mornings the area has a lot to offer lots of lively bars with karaoke and everyone is very freindly I would highly recommendMore

We had great fun, pools were clean quite often (not everyday) Staff were friendly, the cleaners were abit rude. Food options are the same such as pasta, chicken ect.. however was good. Would recommend.More
I'm not going to moan and go on but myself and partner with our 2 year old daughter stayed here for a week and has put me off ever going to Greece again. The hotel was a disgrace, dirty, dingy and the food they offer up was plan nasty so we ate out most nights. The pool was dirty so spent the majority of our stay at the beach at another hotel. The waterpark was decent however hence the 1 star and the people there were nice. The town it's self is like a shanty town and unfinished. Avoid this place like the plague.More
