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 hotel is clean and secure, with the world greatest security guy mike, who can be stern and scary at first but is a little pussy cat... More

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.

There wasn't many parties, because season was already off, but we were happy about that :) Hotel is very close to the beach, only 5 minut walk, and there are very much restaurants, shops with souvenires etc. So we had lot of fun. Recepcionist Viki is super kind,... More

The hotel is in a great location in Malia. Good, clean and very welcoming. The receptionist (Vicky) greeted us when we arrived and gave us a good explanation of where everything is and what is worthwhile seeing (sites, food, pubs, transportation, etc). The hotel also opens a bar in the evening and the bartender is a great guy (Kosta). All... More

Our balcony was also nice. The room was clean and was nice considering how cheap our stay was. The hotel are very strict... More

This is a basic hotel which is clean and tidy. The receptionist (Vicky) was excellent - even offering my wife her hairdryer! Apparently they are refurbishing the hotel for next year - which I believe as they were assessed our room with an interior designer one evening. If so it will be an excellent choice if they get the pricing... More
