I have stayed at the Royal Heights on two occasions, both times I have thoroughly enjoyed myself. When we arrived the receptionists were very welcoming (Julia and Anneliese) The pools are amazing as is the view. Lovely food. Great atmosphere. Staff really are extremely informative and helpful. Great rooms, modern, clean and well maintained. Will definitely be going back and... More

October break for 4 nights. When we arrived I could've sworn there was no one else in the place but at night the restaurant was full! This place was fantastic. The apartments are quiet, clean, well equipped (even Jacuzzi) & well serviced. You are quite high up so a great view of the whole of Malia but NO hustle &... More

A beautiful apartment with stunning views and a wonderful private pool! Although the address is listed as Malia, don't be put off-this place is high up in the mountains and a million miles away from the image that the 'Malia' name is usually associated with. There is an excellent restaurant and spa in the hotel facility as well as another... More

Special thanks to George, Thanassis & Eleftheria and all the other staff for making our stay a special one. Transforms from a wedding venue (c. 600-800 guests!) at weekends into an intimate resort the rest of the time - but done so skillfully you hardly notice. The high quality staff means that a great resort becomes a fantastic holiday.

Decided to book this as a real treat as would not usually spend this time of money, visiting family in Crete. I was so glad I did, I loved every minute. Staff friendly, accomodation spotless, meals good, however recommend swopping dinner for a lunch on occation, so that you can venture out and enjoy the local tavernas. Breakfast can be... More

We visited the Royal Heights Resort in Malia and the setup was perfect. There was a deserted brand new soft play area for our son to play in and we could eat breakfast just the other side of a glass screen adjoining it. In the evenings there was even a staff member in the soft play area so he had... More

We stayed at the villa with private pool... Such beautiful views with your own pool and quietness. You are definitely away from Malia town centre, so if you want to go into town for dinner, you must either hike up and down a hill for 20 minutes each way or hire a car/scooter.. We hired a scooter for 4 days... More

We stayed in this hotel at the end of the season. The hotel had received excellent reviews some of which we had full agreement with. The hotel is set in a prime position away from Malia with sea views. The rooms are large, furnished to an ok standard with an acceptable bathroom. We stayed in one of the luxury rooms.... More
