My boyfriend and I paid a cheap price for a room here back in July. It was basic, but clean. Short walk away from the old town, which was beautiful and a 15 minute walk down to the sea front. Very noisy throughout the night (think Jeremy Kyle, with bells on). Hoteliers were friendly - had a lot on their... More

Arrived in the room to find ants and flies which was disgusting. We had a broken mirror in our room so we had to use our phones to check ourselves out. For the whole duration of the holiday the "maids" only came into our rooms once, which they only came in to throw the garbage away. I heard from other... More

A very friendly place, from the first moment to the last, we met the most amazing people and had the most fantastic service. Good location, hotel was clean and up to brilliant standards. I couldn't fault this hotel in any way. I would like to thank everyone from the hotel for making my time special! Would recommend to anyone!

The staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are big and clean and tidy. The prices are reasonable. We found stores and market nearby, as well as parking for the car. Our stay was very pleasant. Highly recommended.

I will be completley honest about my opinion of Happy Day Studios. If you are going on a lads or a girls holiday to malia please take my advice and - do not stay at Happy Days. It was our first girls holiday, and after reading countless negative reviews on the hotel we were expecting the worst. The rest of... More
