“good location, really friendly”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

Although I went with my boyfriend this is a great family hotel with really friendly and efficient service, clean rooms and a great location: right across the road from the beach with a local supermarket right next door. Although our flight was delayed so we didn't arrive until 1am, Manos from the bar was there to greet us with a smile on his face. There was a BBQ for the final of the football world cup with delicious food and a great atmosphere with two TVs being placed in the bar / pool area so that everyone had a good view. Our maid was also really friendly, coming in to clean our room every day. The kitchenettes were also good - 2 hobs, cutlery, plates, bowls, utensils... everything you need. A short walk up to the main road and along takes you to the bus stop, where buses go every 15 minutes in the day time. I would really recommend staying here.

Stayed here for 14 days in june/july. Apartments were fantastic. Staff lovely, especially manos :) food and drinks purchased from the bar were lovely. The maid was fantastic, she gave us clean towels every day for 14 days! Nothing bad to say about latania at all. Would definitely go back. (The dog that lives above the shop next door was a nightmare) barking early morning and late at night. People that have been to latania will understand. Please keep your children away from the dog as it almost had a chunk out my partners arm.

Stayed at latania 30th June to 7th July
Very Good location very close to the beach, supermarkets, local shops and restaurants (Amici and Anatolia were my favs)
Rooms are good size but a little basic but you get what you pay for they were cleaned everyday towels and bedding changed every other day
Pool area clean and tidy nice pool bar showing all major sports
We stayed in a sea view room which was in a building separate from the main building
But only a 30 sec walk away from the pool/bar etc
Overall a pleasant and comfortable stay and I would recommend this apartment to friends and family.

Just arrived home from a fantastic stay at latania! The staff are so friendly and helpful! Manos behind the bar is especially brilliant! All the rooms are spotless, we had room for 2 nights which was tucked away but a huge spacious room. They then moved us to what we think is the best room in the place with a gorgeous balcony over the pool- room 208 . We had the BBQ which is every Saturday night and the food was faultless with great entertainment. It is right on the main strip of stalis which has so many shops bars and restaurants you need a month there to try them all! And there are also two gorgeous beaches to choose from right on your doorstep! Best bar for us for nemos which is about a ten min walk when you turn left on the main strip. If you are looking for a relaxing holiday either with friends, family or as a couple this is perfect! Will definitely be returning!!

This was a great little place to stay!! It was a fab location from Beach Road, where or the main restaurants and amenities can be found, just round the corner basically! A supermarket 2mins from the apartments! It was kept extremely clean and all the staff were very helpful and friendly!! We loved the pool area where we always found a place for sunbathing and the child we were with loved the size/depth of the pool also! :) The bar was so handy and had all the main sports events shown (great as the World Cup and Wimbledon were on when we were there!) They has some good offers on at cocktail hours!! :) Thr loaction of our apartment was superb! It was also great value for money and had everything we would need! Air conditioning was extra but was reasonable at 5 euros per day and also VERY good!!! We also had the opportunity for a late check out which was fab as our flight was so late again this was at a small cost but worth it in our opinion :) We would defintely recommend and go bacj again! We felt very safe as 2 girls with a 12yr old boy with us :)

Room Tip: The room at the corner of the hotel with the balcony overlooking the pool is where we stayed and it...

Just returned from a fab holiday in Stalis and the Latania was a good choice of accommodation. It's ideally situation in the centre of town, opposite the beach. Lots of great bars and restaurants nearby- especially Anatolia! The only down side is that 1 block is located a couple of minutes walk from the rest of the complex. The Latania website does explain this but the tour operator does not (so this is more the fault of the tour operator than the hotel but it is a slight inconvenience). Unless you need to be in and out of your room every 2 minutes this isn't really a problem and these rooms are quieter. Manos and the rest of the staff are very friendly and helpful and the pool bar has plenty of choice for snacks and drinks. A continental breakfast is included with the B&B choice and there is plenty. The Greek bbq night is worth trying- lots of delicious food! The swimming pool is a good size with lots of sun loungers and umbrellas and the pool is cleaned each morning. It does gather a few dead bugs and leaves during the day, as would any outdoor pool, and it would be even better if these were cleaned mid- afternoon. The cleaners do a great job cleaning the room each day and certainly work hard. I didn't like it that balcony doors were left open to let cool air in as I think this makes the rooms less secure (even though it would be difficult to climb on the balcony it wouldn't be impossible) but hopefully this practice will change. These are the only negatives and they are only minor things. I certainly would hope to visit Stalis again and would definitely like to stay at Latania. Thanks to all the Latania staff for a great holiday!
