We spent 3 glorious weeks exploring Crete staying in rooms where ever we ended up, just going where the wind took us, It was mostly basic accommodation which is what we wanted but the last day we decided to have a bit of luxury, all we really wanted was a good shower with lots of hot water and a comfy...

We had a really relaxing week and the staff were really friendly and welcoming. Views are spectacular! The food was amazing and so were the cocktails! We also used the spa and had a massage which was also lovely. The room was really nice, clean and comfortable. Was a good time of year to come if you just want to... More

A lovely hotel in the middle of no where. Very friendly and helpful staff,always with a smile. We went in the end of October and were upgraded to a private villa with a private pool. The weather didn't permit the use of the pool but I can see how good it would be in the middle of summer. We went... More

We have just returned from our second visit to the Royal heights, what an amazing place from start to finish. The surroundings and views from the hotel are beautiful, rooms clean and good food. The staff, especially the evening waiters were extremely helpful, friendly and a real credit to the hotel. I cannot wait to visit again in the next... More

The Royal Heights Resort is the perfect hotel for a relaxed and reasonably luxurious vacation. Just keep in mind that it will either take you 25 - 30 minutes by foot — or 7 € for a taxi to get into town. About that town… We loved our stay at the Royal Heights. We went there at the end of... More

The resort for sure is very nice; the location, the view, the rooms, the service, all very nice. Outdoor pool very nice, but NOT heated, which I can understand, so only in summer warm. Some 1-2 km from town, not walking distance; if have car its fine. Breakfast was ok, but better to eat in town. Have nice Spa which... More

I read a lot of the reviews before we chose the Royal Heights resort and after having a holiday there, I can agree with most of the comments people have made. It was our first visit to Crete. The resort was high up the hillside, but people said it was a 20-25 minute walk down (true) but a pleasant walk... More

If you are looking for Greek sun and private relaxation this is the place for you. The apartments mainly have private pools and the best ones a view of the sea at the foot of the hill. Definitely far enough away from Malia itself to have no interaction with this 'busy' night time town but close enough to walk down... More

Just back from eleven nights at " The Royal Heights Resort" What an excellent experience. From the room to the food and the staff, everything was first class. The menu had so many choices steak to sea bass etc, we did not have enough nights to try everything. The view from the suite was stunning. The only draw back is... More

This was our first holiday together as a couple and we could not have asked for more. The hotel is set on a hill and far from the 'Blackpool' atmosphere of Malia town. It's clean, comfortable and at night the atmosphere is very romantic. The staff are mostly English and communication is no problem at all. It's peaceful and quiet... More
