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

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

We booked in at the Philoxenia arriving at 11pm on a Thursday night. We arrived to see that the staff of this family run hotel were waiting up, ready with... More

I'm not doubt that Philoxenia hotel is the best hotel in Malia. Perfectly located hotel is near major street and sea. So cozy, clean rooms with fantastic view! We were 4 and had so much fun here! I'd love to come back to this hotel someday!

2nd time at this hotel and again it was brilliant! It is by no means the ritz, which I think some wrongly expect on here, but it is great for holidays with friends!

The taxi dropped me off at this hotel as most others in Malia are currently closed. The people were so friendly and helpful and gave me one of their newly renovated rooms, with TV, air con, shampoo and conditioner. The pool is amazing and the beer at the bar was good too.

The beach is a five minute walk. The... More
