We read reviews that suggested we could have a bad time at this hotel, none of these were true in our experience! The hotel was amazing and I loved every minute. The guy behind the bar called Costa is an absolute legend! The owner Manos is a bit quiet but still very nice. The grounds are beautiful and the pool... More

The bad reviews and pictures don't give this place justice. The two main owners Costas (who usually works behind the bar) and Manos (who greets you on arrival and shows you to your room) were both friendly people. Reading all the previous reviews about the bad experiences and negativity about the owners could really put people off, but when we... More

The manager Manos is horrible his workers are garbage and his hotel unclean. The maids stole money and manos over charged us for everything. Do not stay here it is a dump. It is far from the strip and there are better hotels then this. Only good thing is Costa behind the bar

I went on holiday to Real Palace 21 June - 2 July. As we had read the bad reviews we were all nervous to come to the hotel and were all aware to be nice and friendly. As we arrived we were encouraged to buy air con and a safe but were not forced. Manos and Costas gave us a... More

Where do I start on a terrible week in malia... manos and costas are generally pleasant if you pay their overpriced charges and all in all what appears to be a nice fairly priced hotel in malia turns out rather costly for what you actually get on the first night manos greeted us and told us he has a bigger...

11 of us stayed at Real Palace for a week at the end of June/early July. The pool was always clean and well maintained, the bar was well priced drinks wise but food was a little expensive! Rooms were basic but were perfect for what we required. Wifi was free but a bit temperamental at times, probably due to demand.... More

No complaints at all. Stayed at the Real Palace for a week, and could not have wished for a better hotel. Rooms were ideal for myself and my friends. The food was good and cheap. Personally recommend the milkshakes, they were divine in the heat. Pool was well maintained and cool. Best quality of the hotel, and what made my... More

We had a bit of misfortune in our first hotel and was welcomed with open arms by Manos and Costas at Real Palace. I genuinely cannot say how much they did for us, cheap yet classy and the friendliness goes beyond what you'd expect. Good for all ages but cater very well for younger parties! Thanks guys, we may well... More

Went on holiday with 5 friends all 18. From the moment we got there to the day we left Costas and Manos made us feel so welcome. Even coming back in the early hours of the morning we were treated fairly and told politely to keep the noise down Food is good quality and the hotel is always clean. It... More
