Menia Beach hotel has a friendly atmophere, the service is more than good and the facilities is enough to have a plesant holiday in Creete! Rooms are OK, but a little small or at least not the best lay-out (a little impractical). The pool area is well kept, nice and clean. The hotel has little or no traffic noise, and... More

The Menia Beach hotel is perfectly located in the center of Platanias. It's only 1 minute to a sandy beach with a very clear water. The hotel also has 3 pools for kids and adults. Even it's windy outside, the pool is surrounded by the hotel buildings, so it's always a pleasant atmosphere inside. The room is rather big with... More

We stayed a week in September when the temperatures are nicer, the crowds smaller, and the water still warm. Everything about the hotel was pleasant and sometimes surprisingly so. A great deal of thought has apparently gone into how to best cater for guests. Our room was spacious and practical with good beds with firm mattresses, a good bathroom and... More

This area of Crete is very popular with Scandanavian visitors who are prepared to pay about 25-50% more than visitoors who travel to the south of this wonderful island. That said the hotel rooms were large enough to move around in comfort with very good en suite facilities and were kept clean with working air con and a TV with... More

The rooms are extremely spacious and were cleaned often and to a good standard. We had a self catering apartment however we found it was quite difficult to cook as no pots were provided and there wasn't an oven. There were two big pools which were very clean and great fun! The apartments with a view of the pool/sea are... More

I have just returned from a week in Platanias, staying at the Menia Beach Hotel. It was a beautiful setting, with the beach only feet from the hotel.the pool was always busy but not overcrowded and after a few days I discovered roof top lounge areas - perfect for sun bathing, especially as I had travelled alone!

We stayed for one week. This is a family friendly hotel with two large pools next to the ocean. The rooms, grounds and beach were clean. We booked online following reviews and we're not disappointed. Owner's family and staff were helpful and friendly. They looked after all of our requests. Restaurant food was average. They made more of an effort... More
