Slight issue with being fined a lot for dirty towels. Other than that the hotel staff were alright, the reps were good and was an ideal location for the nightlife. Quite cheap, drink prices aren't amazing but are ok during happy hour. would probably return.

I went to malia for a girls holiday in august and stayed here for 1 week. first thing that i loved was the location, it was around the corner from the strip with hundreds of clubs and bars, a short walk to the bigger supermarkets and only a 10 minute stroll down to the beach. the other hotel residents were...

The hotel is great for what it is. It's a basic hotel; bed shower sink toilet balcony and chairs. Just what we wanted and expected considering the price. Yes one of us had to give our passport in which I was concerned about, but to be fair to the owners this is their livelihood and not every drunken 18-30 year... More

By far the worst place I have ever stayed. I would of rather slept on a cardboard box covered in rats. The woman who runs the hotel is an absolute joke and wants to just fine you for everything. I swear if I didn't speak for a whole week she would still fine me for being loud. The security guard... More

Stayed here for 2 weeks (Sept 2014), group of 3 couples. A mix up of bookings left us without a kitchen which was disappointing. Not having a fridge was a bit of a nightmare in such hot weather. Rooms are basic but clean. Beds are on the hard side and pillows are stone. Small bathroom mirror and not very bright... More

Read the other reviews and think they are a little harsh. This is a good hotel for the price and I felt it did what I needed it to. The hotel is clean and rooms were basic but had everything we needed. Pool area was again clean, plenty of sun loungers and a good pool that was cleaned daily. The... More

Beds only made not changed. Management rude. Food was sparce, if you are willing to wait. Fighting in corridors most nights until 5am in the morning. Empty water bottle in pool when arrived, there for the duration of our stay (1 week). Refused to give passport back until day of departure which is against EU Rules. Hotels in vicinity with... More

Stayed at this property for one week in late August this year and would not recommend it. Firstly the bed sheets were not changed the whole week we were there, they just made the beds. Secondly the cleaning of the room consisted of only the bins being emptied, the floors or balcony was never brushed. Thirdly the "continental breakfast" is... More

After booking this deal only a few days before flying out we only payed under £300 for us both!! After reading the trip adviser reviews It seemed this hotel was a bit of a mixed bag. When we arrived it was late at night and we were all rushed into the hotel to read out list of lots of rules... More
