We went in early May for a complete break away from it all and that is exactly what this accommodation provided. We had booked a rather grandly named Ambassador Villa (Room 305), essentially a two storey semi with its own pool (large) with high fencing providing some seclusion and privacy with a sea view on half board terms. It has... More

This nice hotel is located up on the hill of Malia with great views. We had booked a two bedroom villa with private pool and excellent views. The decoration of the villa is quite plain and modern, not necessary my first choice, but worked well. The villa has lot of natural light and terraces from both bedrooms with awesome sea... More

My Wife and I visited the Hotel Restaurant based on the recommendation of friends although we were not resident guests. Well hats off to their recommendation as we enjoyed what was probably the best meal in terms of quality, taste, presentation and value we have ever had on the Island of Crete, and that's saying something as we have had...

We stayed for ten days from the end of April. The staff knew it was our honeymoon so we had a complimentary bottle of wine in the room on arrival. We were bed and breakfast and the breakfast was excellent, a lot of choice and the options changed every day so you can't get bored, it also offers an amazing... More

Had the most wonderful holiday in royal heights. Beautiful room with an amazing view. All the staff were super friendly and always tried to make our stay the best it could be. Had a great spa too where we had a massage and took some time out from the heat of the sun. Didn't mind the walk down to town.... More

very good staff, the breakfast was really good. Everything is very clean, the pools are great and they have a big indoor playroom for the kids. Is away from the beach, but for this city is not a bad point. You can go by car to the beach and then go back to peace and calm in a civilized way.... More

Just what I wanted! A hotel in the mountain with easy access to the town. Hotel staff were lovely and welcoming, well knowledgeable. Rooms were cleaned everyday. Food was lovely. Would definatley be revisiting this hotel. Would suggest that if you want to see the island hire a car. The town is about a 20 minute walk from the hotel.... More

We were little disappointed when someone told us Malia is more of a teenager holiday noisy area especially in summer. But this was not the case in start of April and the resort is so well maintained and beautiful with great staff in all the areas, we can come here again and again. They made our stay super comfortable and... More

We went we my partner for the first week of may 2014, we really enjoyed our stay. The hotel is magnificent and the villa we had was very modern and comfortable with private swimming pool and great views over the sea and mountains. I would definitely recommend this hotel. I found the value very good for the price. We enjoyed... More
