“great value at a beach hotel”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

Menia is a large hotel right on the beach that also has a very large pool. Our room was a decent size and is a good location in Platanias.
Restaurants and shops abound on either side of the road, so you have plenty of good options around. The service was helpful. Our room rate was amazing given for the 3 nights- I think it was 90 Euro for the 3. We did have a hard time finding it though when driving as it is off the main road.

We were very satisfied with our 1`st stay at menia Beach Hotel,and I can tell,that they are working very hard to "wind in the sand on the beach"(the beaches been "eaten up" by the sea as it is here in Denmark )and if you go a few meters to the right(where the stones lay out in the water),you have very good sandy beach buttom!! and good for snorkling around the stones where there`s lot of smaller fish...and it is NOT true,that there are free sunbeds other places along the beach in Platanias,it must have been your lucky day(have been in Platanias 23 times)..lovely family hotel and also for couples,very nice personell and Georges or Petra will help you with anything !!..and just in front of the hotel,theres a small supermarked with all you need incl. morning bread,so you just have to walk a few meters to do your daily shopping..if you need a car to take a drive out in the open..just ask the reception and your car will be ready for when you need it..so we will be back some other day for sure..!!

Room Tip: rooms with sea view.. also if you love the sound of the sea at night and mornings ,-)

The beach was disapointing. The staff was ok. We are not that happy with the cleaning, the table and chairs outside had to be washed before use and the floor felt like it had not been cleand for weeks..

We had som bad experience with the poolbar/restaurant and therfor we did not go back to eat.

The pool is great, the sunbeds are ok , but all in all we are not coming back to this hotel

We stayed at Menia for 5 days. The location of the hotel was central. Generally the hotel was clean and the staff were friendly. The beach in front of the hotel was very disappointing compared to the other beaches along the same side of the hotel. I found it unacceptable that there is a charge for the use of umbrellas and sunbeds for hotel residents whereas on the other beaches in Platanias there is absolutely no charge even if you are not a resident.
I had telephoned the manager the previous day we arrived to ask whether beach towels were given and he said yes. However on arrival, we found out that although beach towels are given...he conveniently omitted to tell me that there is a charge for their use.
Hotel is good as a base to visit other areas.
Chania is beautiful, I wouldn't stay at the hotel again.
