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...

We found this hotel after a disappointing, although short, experience at the Vasia resort and spa in Sissi. We booked through hotels.com and arrived at the hotel 45 minutes after. Unfortunately, they had only 3 rooms available, and 2 were booked a few seconds before us, so they couldn't stand by our booking. But, Evelina, who was at the reception,... More

A big thank you to all the staff at this lovely 5 star hotel I can not express how warm the welcome was that we received from all the staff at this hotel from start to finish they could not do enough for us. We stayed in a two bedroom villa no: 402 from the 26 Aug - 9 th... More

After booking a trip to Malia with a few of my close friends we thought it would be nice to splash out on something a bit more classy and really enjoy the experience. What we got was definitely not that. Where do we begin? The staff were initially very helpful with our pre holiday enquiries with some helpful responses to... More

We have just returned from a truly memorable holiday at Royal Heights Resort. From my initial contact with Annaleise via email I felt that we would have an excellent holiday - we were not disappointed! Upon our arrival on 15th July we were greeted by the lovely Evelina. She is a really beautiful person and her greeting made us feel... More

We where 4 people sharing the presidential suite. Its a small apartment with private swimming pool. The staff are very friendly and helpful at the reception. The apartment was great. The only thing that i did not like was the showers. There were 2 showers there. The downstairs shower was small and you did make the whole bathroom wet, including... More

We really enjoyed our 10 night stay with our twin 6 year olds. The villa was excellent with a very spacious clean pool and a small but well kept garden with table and chairs and sun loungers. We didn't spend much time at the main pool as we didn't need to. The restaurant food is good but not spectacular (... More

Myself, my new husband and 4 year old son stayed here for 11 nights and had our wedding at the hotel. It is just perfect and each and every one of the staff were amazing, we were treated like royalty. We had 16 friends and their 3 children all staying at the same time and each and every one said...
