As a young woman who is only used to five to four star hotels (quite snobby) I was still pleasantly happy to stay here. It is a perfect location to all the nightlife and... More

I went to Malia last week with my a few of my friends and I don't normally write reviews but thought I had to on this occasion. I'm not picky when it comes to standards but the room we were put in on the ground floor was awful, the toilet was broken, the shower leaked all over the floor and... More
