The hotel is a well run family business which is welcoming from the moment you arrive to the day you leave. The staff are there to cater every need in which you want. Would highly recommend the place .

Ignore the bad reviews if your a young group looking to have fun in malia. The rooms may be basic but there's nothing that bad about them. Georgia and Faye who run the hotel are great hosts who help make you have a great stay. Fun atmosphere during the day at the pool. Happy hour at the bar is a... More

Hi All, Hope all is well. If it is... Don't stay here! You will regret every second in the room and any interaction with the staff (bar the maids). The guy who owns the place is a massive sleeze all he does is perve at the ladies and if he doesn't like you he will leave you standing at the... More

Not so happy days. Me and four other lads booked this hotel in January and went out there for 10 nights. When we arrived at 04:00 and we were told the hotel was overbooked for the night and we were booked into another hotel a 10 minute drive (so the hotel got off to a pretty bad start). So we... More

Booked for a cheap holiday with my girlfriend and you get what you pay for. Firstly, don't believe the location that tripadvisor gives, it is further away from the strip and beach than shown; about 10 minutes more. From hotel to beach took about 20 minutes, the return took about 30 (uphill, not steep) but that is providing you ignore... More

A lot of rules changed by them as... More

me and my two best friends came here for 11 night girly holiday in August 2012 and thought booking 'happy days' would be at least happy but no. there's more rules than a prison! awful staff, accept one lady, can't remember her name but she only liked us because we bought her cocktails a few times. Rooms were disgusting &... More
