I stayed here 30th June 09 - 6th July 09 and we had no problems. Its in easy walking distance of the strip but far enough away so you can have a perfect nights sleep. Maria wasn't half as bad as people made her out to be! Me and my friend even lost our keys and she was happy enough... More

People who come onto this site and complain about the Malia strip have obviously not done their research. I came to Malia last year when I was 19 with 3 girl friends of the same age and we knew what it was going to be like. Maria was fine and we were well behaved so didn't have any problems with...

So, we booked this as a last-minute tanning and relaxation getaway. We have no interest in Malia style night-life we just wanted a cheap stay in the sun. Maria is fine if you are polite, yes she did say no visitors in her brief rules list, but we're not that type of girl anyway! Plus we both have boyfriends at... More

I read the reivews on here before I went, and they really worried me! So, with quite low expectations, we arrived at 12.30am to be greeted by maria who firmly lay down the ground rules before giving us our room keys. We headed up to our apartment to find clean, basic apartments, with everything you need from a basic hotel.... More
