We just arrived from one week holiday in Menia. We had a lovely week enjoying the cosy atmosphere and really friendly staff. The food in the restaurant was good and the staff also there so nice and friendly. We attended also the Creek show & barbecue dinner on Monday and enjoyed every second. We were travelling with children and got a nice apartment next to the pool. We normally went to the beach just front of the restaurant and it was so easy to come and go to our apartment if we needed to pick up something. Free Wi-Fi was reached by our apartment too which was appreciated by the teenagers :)
We didn't find any complaints and we'll definitely come again! Aivan ihastuttava hotelli!

We were very satisfied with Menia in every way. The location is excellent: close to center of Platanias but still very quiet, no traffic, supermarket with fresh bread every morning and the seaview was wonderful. The room was clean and well-equipped, free Wi-Fi, and the sight from the balcony to the pools and the sea was very beatiful. The pool area was very nice and the food in the outdoor restaurant was tasty. The staff was friendly and service was excellent. We have nothing to complain. We can really recommend this hotel. Suosittelemme lämmöllä Meniaa rauhallisesta lomasta pitäville!

Nice rooms, good swimmingpoolarea, with a lot of sunbeds and playground for the kids. The staff of the hotel are very friendly and helpful.

Menia Hotel and resturant is the best place i've ever been to! I've been there twice, and i really enjoyed it! Really good service at the hotel, and the resturant was fantastic! Great food, and the people there was really nice. I hope me and my family can come back there soon!
I've been to other hotels and resturants in greece before, but no one can beat this place!

Room Tip: I would recomend a room high up. And that is pointing to the sea. It's really beautiful.

Menia is beautifully placed at the bach outside Platanias. The restaurant lies in the end of the 2 pools and almost on the bach. The restaurant have a meny with all from snack-food to dinner. Very good food to nice prices. The personal on the hotel and restaurant is very nice and you feel that you are very welcome. Every morning the owner and his family say hallo and ask you how you are and wish you a great day, nice. The rooms are nice with all that you need for a holliday. Aercondision is free and rooms have cithchen with fridge and possibillities to cook food. The cleaning is very good, 6 days a week. Outside the hotel you have a small supermarket with all that you need and frech bred every morning.
