Before travelling to Malia we read the reviews on this hotel and got really worried about the location and staff. We got there and received a warm welcoming from the manager, the room was lovely and tidy with a pool view!! The pool is huge and very clean. We had no problems what so ever at this hotel. The cleaner... More

If you are well behaved you will have no problems at the real palace. The staff are very friendly and bend over backwards to help you. We were met by Manos at 12 pm after being transferred from a dump in Stalis;that was a good sign. The room was spotless albeit a bit basic, no kettle. However there is an... More

Having decided last minute to get away, my mate had suggested we head to Malia. Not knowing what to expect, we chose the Real Palace. It turned out to be one of the best holidays i have ever been on!! The staff were all fantastic, and quite entertaining at times. The food at the poolside bar was excellent, and the... More

It was a bit out of the way from everything and quite scary to get home to at night as it is pitch black near enough with not may lights. Also the food and drinks at the hotel was quite pricey! The Staff however completely ruined... More

We booked a holiday for end of June/July at this hotel. When we arrived we were told that it was fully booked and that we would have to be moved to another block down the road. It was about 5-6 minutes walk away and had no pool. Infact it wasn't even a hotel, more like a residential block. We felt... More

My boyfriend and I have just returned from here, the hotel is gorgeous, really really clean. The staff consists of husband, wife and brother - all are lovely people - Kosta is hilarious. As it is a family run hotel, they take pride in everything, always asking how you/food/drink/room are. I read the reviews before we went and was a... More
