We spent a week here and enjoyed every minute. The hotel itself was clean and well kept. All of the staff were friendly and helpful and did all they could to make us feel welcome. A quiet hotel both during the day and the evenings. Perfect for relaxing or a family holiday with young children. We took a 5 year... More

We stopped over at this hotel en-route to Santorini. Really good staff & pool....our 2-bed apartment had a great view & good facilities. The beds though were rock hard & the air conditioning a bit iffy !

The hotel and the service is very good. The hotel is located 1 km from the old town of Malia with nice traditional Greek tavernas and restaurants. We stayed for 14 days and are very happy to recommend this hotel to others that want a nice and quite hotel with or without family.

We were looking for a partying/ sightseeing holiday but a relaxing,quiet, location to stay and found this hotel to be perfect. The strip is only a short walk and on quad bikes even quicker. The hotel staff are so friendly and provided a great service. The surroundings and views are amazing, for a hotel so close to malia I was... More

The hotel is in an excellent position, a quiet area but very close to everything. It is about 5-10 mins walk to The Strip, 5-10 mins walk to the Old Town and about 10-15 Mins walk to Stalis. The room was very clean, free bottled water provided every day and a free airport transfer (which our travel agents didn't tell... More

This is a lovely hotel. We went as a group of lads and I must stress it's not really a hotel for groups, even though we had an amazing time. They did try to send us to a 18-25 hotel but we refused to leave. They just asked us to keep the noise down and stuff. The good points were... More

This has been our third visit to this wonderful place. We were introduced by some friends a few years back and have returned 3 times in 4 years. It is so quiet and just off the main Malia to Stalis Road, so is easy to get to both places. The hotel is run by the owners son and daughter and... More

Hotel was clean, rooms cleaned daily and bottled water left in the fridge. 5 min walk to the super market. Daily breakfast buffet lovely. Toddler play... More

Very nice modern hotel. Very clean and quiet around the pool - comfy sunbeds! Only complaint is that beds were really hard - we like a firm bed but found these to be too hard for us. Staff really nice and nothing too much trouble. Tried to book for next year but full up on the dates we want. Maybe... More
