Went with a group of eight girls all seemed well until we got to the room, the 'three bedroom room' was tiny, two single beds with a rubbish camp bed poked in the corner which broke repeatedly and the wooden slats fell out so was very hard to sleep on. Only had hot water for around one hour per day... More

I'd visited Real Palace many times on my previous stays in Malia to use their swimming pool, but this was the first time I'd stayed there. Location - It's up in the old village of Malia, on the same road as Happy Days, but further along that road (approx 500 metres) as you head out of town. Consequently it's a... More

I've worked and holidayed in Malia for 11 years and I've stayed in the Real Palace for two years. Manos and his family are fantastic. They speak very good English, make great food and will give you great advice. The Real Palace is out of the way for Malia and therefore good if you're a little older than the normal... More

I recently visited Malia with my 3 friends. We were unfortunate enough to stay in this hotel from 22nd August - 29th August 2014.

On our first day I... More

I have just returned home after spending a wonderful week at Real Palace. I have to admit I was a bit wary having read some if the reviews before I left, being a woman of 48 travelling alone. Believe me my concerns were completely unfounded! I had a great time! Manos and Costas were so friendly and helpful. They work... More
