Happy days is a shamble of a hotel. The management and staff are absolutely horrible and unpleasant to be around. They throw around ridiculous fines and are incredibly unwelcoming. In one instance they tried to fine my friends for damage to a moped which is of course incredibly fair however there was no real damage at all. When we asked... More

I stayed here for 2 weeks with 2 friends from 1st-15th July this year. The hotel is very clean and well kept. All the family, especially Georgia, Chris and Faye made us feel really welcome and they can certainly show you how to have a good time! And will always help you out if you need anything. Nothing is too... More

Me and my two friends stayed here for our first girls holiday away. We were slightly worried at first due to the reviews on here, but the hotel proved every bad review completely wrong. The staff are lovely and respect you if you respect them. I agree that Dimitris (the security guard) can be abit off and rude, but he... More

Group of six of us stayed here when we went on a lads holiday to Malia in June. The only reason I've not given Happy Days 5-stars is because of the charge for air-con & the charge for wifi. The staff were really welcoming and friendly to all of us. If you show them respect then they show you respect... More

Me and a friend stayed here in July and it was amazing. The rooms are clean, a good size and they have what you need. The apartments are run by a family who look after you and are really nice. Georgie behind the bar is so nice and she'll make you any cocktail you want, Fay is lovely and her... More

Before I start; if a 24 year old Russian girl named Anna, who studied Finance at Uni, and stayed in a different hotel for 2 weeks with her friend Kate, reads this, please message me on here. Me and 9 others stayed here for 8 nights, I found it was run a bit like a prison, would definitely not recommend... More

Arrived early june 2014. I went into my room to find one of the staff, spencer, wiping poo all over the curtains whilst screaming something about his girlfriend. We were absolutely shocked and immediately went back to reception desk where the staff hurled abuse at us in Greek. I could make out the Greek to be insults about "pocket w****nking"... More

One of the best hotels I have stayed in. Any of these bad reviews have either been from people who didn't respect the staffs very few rules, or have never been on holiday. First off, most hotels i've stayed in don't allow you to drink or eat your own things around the pool. The staff try their hardest to make... More
