Had to get this down while still fresh in the memory. been here for the last 4 years now not bad considering we try somewhere new every year, WHY ? The people at this hotel make you feel at home, the greek night brings the whole hotel together its a must for all, fantastic night if you don't try it you should not comment as you do not know what experience you are missing out on, fantastic reasonably priced food and entertainment for the full night. All of this is made possible by the hard working happy Manos and his staff (they are all stars). how a previous guest can say the staff aren't happy and have favourites is beyond me, everyone is made to feel welcome and treated the same once you've experienced the Latania hospitality you will be back.

I am currently on holiday at latania. Been coming to the same hotel for 5 years we have never had a problem. Everyone here at latania are very friendlyand helpful. Also great food and great service. The pool area isnt a huge pool but it is a great size for famaily's This year had been very busy at latania and there are only a certain amount of sun beds to fit in the pool area so people are still able to walk around with out being to cramped around the pool. I have noticed someone has commented about the sunbeds around pool and people coming down early morning to put down sunbeds.. i have noticed people including my self get up early around 6/7am to place a sunbed around the pool. People who come down at 10/11 am expect to get a sunbed for them self and there children by this time the sun beds have been taken and have people on them sunbathing, iv also seen people offer sunbeds to people who hasnt got one if there not being used no more. Bar manager MANOS is lovely and friendly who greet all new guest and welcome them to the hotel he is very helpful if there is any problems. He is always smiley happy person to be around always happy to see new faces always days goodnight to guest.Reception and manos are very helpful if anyone has any quearies or if there is any problems they get sorted straight away. Manos also does bbq on a monday night there is a great selection of foods that are specially cooked by him self or other bar workers. Great service and great monday night with music and dancing.

Have just returned from Latania on Saturday after a 2 week stay, this was a good hotel and we enjoyed our stay. There were a few issues we had though, the pool area was to small, and there were not enough sun beds for the amount of people staying at the hotel. The first week of the holiday was fine, and we was able to sit around the pool every day, but during the second week large groups started to arrive and for 3 days straight we were unable to sit around the pool as there were not enough beds or people were getting up at silly o’clock to reserve beds with towels and then not come to the pool until midday which was a little frustrating for us with children even though there are signs to say not to. One morning I decided to do the same and I arrived around the pool area at 7:00am to reserve a few beds but alot of the beds had already been taken so people must have been getting up at stupid times to put out their towels, which was not ideal. So I decided to speak with the owner and reception as it was not fair that the children wanted to spend the day by the pool but couldnt and we had to pay to go onto the beach instead, and they simply said there is nothing they can do about it which was very unhelpful, I believe they should have enforced the sign more.
Also before we arrived, I noticed a lot of reviews on Trip Adviser regarding the Pool and bar manager Manos making their holidays and being very helpful and friendly, but to be honest I have got to say I did not see this at all. He was very miserable through-out the whole holiday and not approachable at all, I put this down to the fact that we never attended his weekly BBQ on a Monday evening which is not worth the money at all. Also drinks and food are much cheaper outside the hotel which is a shame.

Room Tip: Attend the Hotels weekly BBQ and then you will be well looked after by Manos

Dear MRRNK
We would like to thank you for your comment and also we are very happy we’ve been the cause to write your first and only review on trip advisor page.

On that point I have to admit that you had one of the best room in the complex and nonetheless when you saw it you asked for a room change! This could be easy for us but next morning you changed your mind.

As it concern the matter with the pool please note that we have a BIG sign at the pool area in which is clearly mentioned : 1) DEAR VISITORS PLEASE DON’T LEAVE YOUR TOWELS ON THE SUNBEDS WHEN YOU ARE NOT IN THE POOL AREA
and also : 2) YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO RESERVE SUNBEDS .

This sign is respected at 95% during all summer season but also is a possibility someone to ignore it intentionally or unintentionally.

Pool area has about 45-50 sun beds and during all summer only few days are all, at the same time, occupied. You stayed here 2 weeks and this was an issue for 2 days.

As it concern the BBQ, a simple question only is coming on mind : how you can criticize something you never try ? How you can say “is not worth the money at all” if you never had it ??

Finally as it concern how friendly or helpful Manos is, we can ask thousands of our visitors all these years.

We look forward to welcoming you back to our Hotel.

Kind Regards

Thoroughly enjoyed our holiday at the Latania. The location was perfect being only a few steps from the beach, restaurants and bars of the resort although not noisy. Our apartment was nicely appointed, clean and comfortable and the staff were friendly.

Just got back from spending 10 days in stalis and staying at the latania apartments. The apartments were absolutely brilliant very big and spacious, spotlessly clean, and bar and pool area perfect. All the staff were lovely, very friendly and just really nice people. The apartments are In a fab location everything you need is right on your doorstep you couldn't ask for more. We met some really lovely people also staying at the latania and carnt wait to go back next year and hopefully meet back up with everyone again. Xx

Just returned from Crete and loved the whole holiday from the Island itself to the hotel. The Latania is well positioned for all the bars, restaurants and beaches. The accommodation is clean, bright and well equipped and is well looked after. If I could fault anything it would be that the pool is too small, but we went to the beach anyway and didn't find it to be a problem.

Room Tip: 314 was very good with views over the mountains

Truth is that many beatiful beaches are around Stalis area and worth a visit (for me, more than one :) )
