Brilliant base for exploring around the area, close to Agios Nikolaos, Knossos, Elounda and Plaka, for a connection to Spinalonga, the island of tears. Food, you don't go hungry! Stayed on a half board basis, which suited us fine, flexible in meal times, buffet breakfast, with greek yoghurt and honey, fresh breads, fruit and cereals, backed up with cheese and... More

From the moment we arrived until the day we left the service was outstanding. Having arrived at the hotel from Chania, (some 2 to 3 hour drive) and a long journey from the UK, we were greeted by Koula who not only attended to our every need but upgraded our room to a 1 bed apartment. We hadn't eaten since... More

Stayed here in June last year. A group of 9 Lads aged 20-23. Chose this hotel as it was relatively cheap and reviews were excellent. Most other hotels in Malia looked like dumps and cost an arm and a leg for some reason. Also it meant we didn't have to deal with the annoying 18-30 reps in most hotels. Rooms... More

Birds chirping, bells from distant goats climbing a mountain, the scent of mandarin trees, friendly and knowledgeable staff, lovely food. The rooms were very clean, the usage of space was cleverly maximised. AC works as heater as well. Both sea and mountain views, very quiet and pleasant. Staff was Greek and British, very friendly - I felt like I was... More

We booked this holiday, last minute, as a quick break away, just for some R & R! We were so pleasantly surprised! Beautiful Sea View Studio Apartment. As it was very cold when we first arrived, our hostess Koula, immediately gave us the key and instructions on how to use the heater, which was invaluable for the first few days!... More

We booked this late last year for a cheap family holiday to Crete. My expectations were not high due to the bargain price, but it was clear from the beginning that everyone who worked here cared about this place. It is a brilliant find and I would highly recommend a stay if your thinking of booking. It is a short... More

We stayed as a family of three from 30th March through to April 8th. I cannot praise this hotel highly enough. I write as a person with over thirty years' hospitality experience I know what I am looking for. We stayed during the off peak time in Crete however from the day we arrived to the day of departure we... More
