We stayed at Latania 31/7 -14/8.We arrived early hours of the morning and were greeted by the famous Manos.Very friendly and helped us with our bags to our room.The room was very clean and facing the mountains,lovely view.Nice and quiet so never ant trouble sleeping.The maid came in everyday ,except one.The towels and bedding were changed regularly.Bins emptied every day.the maids were really friendly and worked very hard.
Next morning we had a lovely breakfast by the pool which is just a nice size for the complex.We ate at the pool bar a number of times over our stay and found it reasonable and very good food.Dan my eleven yr olds favourite was what we now call a 'Manos vanilla milkshake'.
We do tend to be out and about a lot but never found Manos to be rude at all.Manos and George work so hard and George joins in the fun around the pool with everyone.I think from previous reviews that Manos is been misunderstood.There are people who have been going to these apartments for 6-7-8 yrs+ ,they are not just customers they are now his friends,customers kids are friends on facebook with George.We never found the 'rudeness' other people have spoken about .We always had our first evening drink at the pool bar and usually a few night caps but didn't spend all our time there.
The BBQ night is raelly good,food was fab and lovely atmosphere.It was also tremendously good value considering the quantity and quality of the food.
Tim on reception was an absolute gem,always helpful ,nothing was too much trouble.
The 1 Bed apartment was large enough for 5.The only place (apart from a 2 bed) that we have all been able to hang up our clothes.We each had a proper bed...no put me ups here.So never had trouble getting a great nights sleep.
The apartments are ideally located with restaurants and bars whichever way you walk along the beach rd.We found the beach to the left hand side was wider with smaller waves so better for swimming and little ones.Dwyers do a great deal with sunbed,umbrella ,toastie and fruit for 3Euro.
We ate at some fabulous restaurants with our top 4 being Jannis,Minos,Karerina's and Maria's Golden Beach.
You have to go and visit the crepe man!!!
Best bars were,Dwyers(great live music everynight),Pegasus(hostess there is such a laugh),Rovers Return(quizzes etc,occasional live music)and by no means last The Red Lion,some fab nights in there with great staff(especially Iliana)Cheeky Monkey is great for a chill is rope swing chairs and very reasonable drinks.
Chippy's is really good for Good Food fast!!!
We loved every minute of our holiday at Latania and because of the fantastic atmosphere around the pool spent far more time at the pool than on previous holidays.We found we'd go out in the day but we would always try and get back for the last few hours round the pool.We met some lovely families around the pool and there was always a good mix of ages too.
We would definately recommend The Latania and would definately go back.
Thankyou for a fantastic holiday Tim,Manos,George and all the wonderful staff.We will definately see you again....hopefully really soon.<3
