Plakias / Re: Major building work underway at far end!!
« Last post by Daniel on June 12, 2019, 05:01:25 PM »
Main bits came on the back of a low loader.
Today they are fitting the covered sitting area at the front.
Looks fairly permanent to me ?

Yes I remember that. It didn't really get built. just ended up a pile of wood. What about this one though?

Didn't they start building one somewhere near there about 15 years ago? And pulled down again very quickly

Plakias / Major building work underway at far end!!
« Last post by Daniel on June 11, 2019, 04:39:09 PM »
A new beach bar under construction about 75 yards from the Palagremos beach bar, and towards the far ends so will be giving the existing bar a bit of competition !!
Looks like it will be finished and open by week end and it is directly opposite the Plakias Suites accommodation so may be something to do with that set up ?

( sorry for the sensational headline, but had to get your attention)

Hi its Mick & Linda from Liverpool

Looking forward to Plakias this year our 15th in a row usual two weeks flying from Manchester for 2 weeks staying at the Alianthos for the first time cant wait.
Looking forward to meeting up with many familiar faces  and spending time with Angelos at Costas's, Joe at Joes bar, Pavlos at Kyma not to mention Mikey at Cozy's not forgetting the wonderful owners of Apollo I suspect not much has changed since last year.
Meeting up with Nick & Mary from Bristol as usual looking forward to catching up with them

Holiday Companies / Re: Olympic 2019

Sad to say I wont be going to Plakias again next year as well as many of my friends.  Missed this year as the cost of the transfer makes for an expensive holiday. Still on the plus side I have found another Greek Island ( Kalymnos) where Olympic include transfers.  Every cloud etc etc…

Plakias / Re: Car hire

Good to use a Plakias firm. However this year we are again hiring a VW Polo from Autoway at exactly the same price you quote. Absolutely everything insured with zero excess. Used them (and Polos) for 10+ years and find Autoway  super reliable and super helpful. Autoway head office at Rethymnon but have hire car facilities at both airports.

Holiday Companies / Re: Olympic 2019

For those Olympic clients who are already thinking about 2020, I have been told that they will have no charter flights to anywhere next year, instead exclusively using third party carriers such as easyJet, Thomas Cook, Tui, etc. This means that no holidays will have a transfer included, although for resorts within a reasonable distance of an airport a coach transfer will be an optional extra.

The only options for Plakias will be to make your own arrangements (taxi or bus) or pay Olympic's exorbitant charge for a taxi. So those lucky Manchester clients who had a taxi transfer at Olympic's expense this year will be in the same boat as those from Gatwick next year. Olympic is offering a decent choice of airports and fly to Heraklion 5 days of the week.
