Air con worked fine, free safe provided, couldn't... More

Nice hotel with 2 nice pools, close to the beach, so every dag we could choose between staying by the pools or at the beach. Menia is almost right between Platanias and Agia Marina, quite sentral, with many small and big shops along the mail street.... More

Hotel was clean and nice. Reception dude was friendly and helpful. Beach was good when you walked a couple of meters sideways. Peaceful hotel area and good location. Free safetybox. Bus stops and shopping places were close. Also the pool area was nice. Hotel dog was cute :D TV didn't work.

This was our second time at Menia Beach Hotel and it felt like coming back to home. We have never before stayed in the same hotel twice but we really couldn’t think any other option for this summer than returning to Menia. The main reason for that is the staff at Menia, they are absolutely great, very friendly and fun!... More
