This is the second visit to this wonderful place. We choose a 2 bed villa (401) with its own pool and garden which the children love. We were a little concerned in the run up to the holiday with the Greece/euro issue, but we had frequent communications from the hotel explaining all was ok, which it was. Staff are excellent,...

Just coming the end of a 12 night family holiday (two boys aged 10 & 16) staying in one of the deluxe suites. The hotel is in a lovely location - a two minute drive uphill from Malia old town. The pool area has fantastic views looking out over Malia as far as Stalis and is never very busy. The... More

Completely faultless in all aspects. The two bedroom Presidential Villa is equipped very well with excellent private pools. They are cleaned daily to a high standard by a team of very friendly staff. The HB option is good value for money and both breakfast and evening meal caters for all tastes. I would highly recommend this hotel. We are hoping... More

My husband & I stayed at Royal Heights for 10 wonderful days. We had a 1 bedroom villa with a pool. The villa was spotlessly clean with lovely views of the coast. We hired a quad bike to get around the area as its to hot to walk up & down the hill all the time.food & service was first... More

Panoramic view of the Malia Bay up to the nice traditional Sissi village. Very nice food, the prices are o.k., nice first floor cafe to enjoy pretty almost anything you can think of. Nice clean rooms. Access a little complicated but this is Crete!!!

Having traveled extensively at five star hotels, you would do well to beat the fantastic value. The staff have all been at the hotel a long time and really do make every effort to ensure you have a great break. Honestly some of the best service I have ever encountered. My daughter was well looked after, the food is great... More

Just an amazing hotel. Where else can you get your own pool and villa, but with HB accommodation? Staff are always smiling, happy to help and will go the extra mile. From breakfast to evening staff and food are amazing. Accommodation is spotlessly clean, and nothing is too much trouble if you want extra bits & pieces. We have stayed... More

Once again stayed at the Royal Heights whilst visiting family both in Crete and family from elsewhere in UK. Same as before, food wonderful, whether you go half board or just have a meal because you dont want to venture out. Very reasonably priced, presentation amazing and always with a friendly smile. Love all the staff who can never do... More

The Royal Heights Resort was fantastic - one of the best hotels at which we have stayed. The staff was very courteous, and the room was very luxurious (would recommend the villa!). When we go back to Crete, we will stay again.
