Ranked #2 of 52 Hotels in Stalis
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 10 August 2014

Have just spent ten days in the latania appartments the staff are very friendly and welcoming the pool is a little on the small side and sunbeds have to be bagged early and to be honest if everyone wanted a day by the pool there would not be enough, but as we had pool days and beach days this was never a issue.

the maids are excellent and the appartments are cleaned every day

Air con is good value at 5e a day but be warned you cannot leave it on all day as your key activates the electricity and it goes off when you leave the room

Stalis has some lovely beaches and is very family orientated and the people are so friendly the restraunts around stalis offer great value for money. This was our 2nd year in stalis and we did notice that slowly the malia crowd are starting to move up the coast this was evident on the amount of quads about with youngsters being idiots on ! it would not supprise me that in maybe 2 to 3 years stalis and malia will be 1 long strip. Sad to say i dont think we will be going back again but if you want a nice family run hotel in a friendly area then i would not hesitate in recommending the latania apartments.

We have just returned from our 2nd stay at Latania and it was by far better than the first. We travelled as a group of 10 this year and were all in the same block towards the rear.
The rooms were all very well appointed and good value for money.
Facilities were again very good with no issues.
Manos and Tim were joined by Manos son and another barman who were always up for a laugh and very good company.
I would recommend the Bar-b-cue night on Mondays as the food was amazing and great value for 13euros.
Def be travelling again to Latania in the future, if anyone is travelling here and would like any advice as to trips or places to eat please feel free to drop me a line.

Room Tip: Ask before travelling. Tell Tim what you would like he will happily assist you.

stayed in the Latania from 27th June-11th July . Lovely hotel , Party of 16 adults and children.

Rooms were cleaned daily and the maids were so helpful and lovely.
Pool- was cleaned daily and there were pool toys for the children ( or adults to use).plenty of sun loungers , very relaxing .
one night of entertainment in the two weeks we were there BBQ night with Greek singing- 13E per person a brilliant night.
There is a mini library in the reception (plenty of books to chose from)
Bar-meals were lovely, freshly made to order and a good price , some good cocktail deals in happy hour!
The hotel grounds are so beautiful, the pictures really don't do it justice this is a beautiful place!

be aware that there is a part of the hotel called the annex that is down the road, not good if you have children who want to play due to the busy road.

during this stay we were in 3 rooms: first room was in the annex - very small not for a family of four but such a beautiful sea view.
second room was ground floor located near the pool - excellent room , would like this again when we return.
3rd room was in the rear of the building , beautiful view of the mountains and good size apartment .
All rooms had good facilities , two ring stove, kettle, microwave, utensils . All rooms were spotless.

There is a park for small children.

The local area is beautiful with plenty of shops that are open till very late at night, plenty of restaurants very good prices and local supermarkets next door.
we hired Quads out 120E for 12 days well worth it we went up the mountains , and across the island .

The only bad thing I can say is about the "BARKING DOG"!! this is not the owner of Latania's fault as it belongs to the shop next door but did wake us and keep us awake late in to the night. people who have stayed will know what I mean, the dog is also nasty so BEWARE when walking near it.

I would defiantly recommend this hotel and we will be booking to go again after next years holiday.

Room Tip: All rooms are nice . but be aware that the annex is down the road.

Great place to stay very clean, very friendly staff we arrived at midnight and we were made very welcome and given a complimentary drink from the bar. The location is fantastic right on the strip yet tucked up a side road just enough to be quiet and safe. Pool is lovely and the snack bar is great and reasonably priced. All in all a great base for a great holiday.

We left nearby Christiana beach because it was so poor, and Latania apartments only had one room left, however even so they managed to fit us in last minute and the room was a massive improvement from our previous hotel. The staff were amazingly helpful and friendly, the room was always cleaned and was furnished respectably.

The pool bar was very nice although a little pricey, but the bar tender was very nice and helpful. The free drink on arrival was also a very nice touch.

The apartment saved our holiday and made it much better, and I am glad we made the choice to move hotels to here.

Thank you very much for your help at short notice, and being so accommodating, I really recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the area. Value for money was also amazing and the prices were very agreeable.
