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

I'm not exactly sure how this place qualifies as a resort or how it has just shy of 4 stars on some websites. This place is far up the hillside so getting around town is nearly impossible without renting a car. The Good: 20-25 minute walk down/up steep hill to restaurants and bars on the strip in downtown Malia. The... More

This was our second visit to the Royal Heights, we requested the same villa as our previous stay and once again we were completely thrilled with everything the hotel offers, it was a perfect relaxing holiday just what we needed. All the staff were friendly and efficient, we had no problems whatsoever and wouldn't hesitate in returning.

This is our second stay at the royal heights and it keeps getting better. From the moment we arrived annalise made us feel welcome as ever. The villas are luxurious and over beautiful views over malia. The old town below has numerous great restaurants and we can't wait to come back. A car is recommended due to location.

Great resort. Very friendly staff especially the receptionist. The road up to the hotel was exceptionally steep therefore would not recommend unless hire a car or use taxis. Beach in Stalis down the road very nice and Malia eye opener. Far enough away from Malia to cause any problems. Would go again if had opportunity. Very quiet and relaxing holiday.

All of the staff at the resort are so friendly and helpful which made our stay even more special. On our last... More

The best villa style hotel we've stayed in. We made constant use of the large villa private pool and rarely used the main pool (although also a good size well maintained). The pool and villa were cleaned thoroughly everyday by friendly staff. The food quality was great and there's lots of it! Restaurant staff always provided prompt, friendly service and... More

It really does amaze me how people can have a complete different experience in the same hotel. The review prior to this in my opinion does not give a true reflection of the hotel and it's staff, that's not to say the reviewer didn't have a poor experience but they were totally contrary to what my family have just enjoyed...
