Family arrived last summer looking for our garden view room. They didn't have one available so they offered us a no view room, which we didn't' care for. This was not acceptable to them, so they billed us anyway. Owner wrote letters and threatened us with a lawsuit- all for $200., so we paid the fee Funny thing was, owner... More

We stayed at the Philoxenia hotel for the 2nd year running. Perfect family hotel. So relaxing and the staff are wonderful and so friendly and helpful. Anyone going away on a family holiday to Malia should stay at this hotel. Will be going back next year.

We stayed in Philoxenia in Seprember 7-14, 2014. We love everything! The atmosphere was great. Welcoming staff, very tasty breakfasts and especially dinners (good variaty of dishes), rather comfortable rooms. The only minus was that rooms differ from the pictures on booking.com and other sites (but any way they are good). The hotel is situated in 4 minutes near the... More

We had a drink at the bar of the hotel.The atmosphere was great and the staff welcoming.But I was disappointed of the poor quality that the cocktails had for such an expensive price and also without an accompanying such as chips.But we had a great time.

The best part of the hotel was a very nice receptionist!!! She should get a bonus for a good work! Bartenders: also nice. Location: great, close to the beach and night life. Food: very boring, very little choice, cold food, never on time…. Breakfast starts at 7.30am, I had to wait until 8am. If you come a bit later -... More

As a group of six girls we chose to pay slightly more and stay in one of the 'nicer' hotels on Malia strip; we were disappointed and regret staying in this hotel. The staff were rude from the moment of arrival, rooms were all mixed up with another group of holiday makers, whom were forced to move and vacate the... More

PhiloxeniaHotel, Owner at Philoxenia Hotel Malia, responded to this review

Dear Guests, For the correct and realistic idea is also necessary to read below : 1) Upon arrival, reviewers have been informed that the hotel is a Family Hotel and they have to behave their selves when they will be at the Hotel, outside of Philoxenia they can do whatever they want. Young visitors from UK unfortunately are not used... More

We booked this hotel with high hopes as it seemed one of the better hotels located close to the strip. The hotel itself was not to bad as for the price and area we did not expect the Ritz. Upon arrival we was given our room key and the staff requested that we give them our passport numbers but did... More
