We have been there from May 26 to June 2, 2015. The place is clean, nice and staff is great. Elena, Maria and the other members make you feel home. The position is really great if you wan to relax. Near the archaeological site and 20min walk distance to Malia center is a perfect place to enjoy the Greek culture,... More

Stayed in July 2014 with friends and our children 3 and 6 y.o. Food Ok - i personally liked better than in Egypt 4"". What they call a "sandy beach" is actually a place where you can't access water b/c huge and sharp stones. You need to walk about 3 mins from the hotel along the seashore to get to... More

Really sorry to be a bummer here, but I guess we had higher expectations for this place. There was no view from our room... only the sewer stench. The food was okay, staff was friendly and property is located on Sun Beach in Malia- towards the eastern edge. The animation team is terribly annoying and loud, I'm no fan of... More

Good hotel, more suitable for young people. The hotel is nice and have the main facilities. The beach is just a few minutes away. The best thing is the animation team, really friendly and easy-going. they try really hard to entertain you and to make your holidays special.

If you want to explore the Island but you limited by your small kid - this hotel is for you. Nce beach nearby (5 min to the left along beachside) excellent food for 3+ star hotel and fair room with balcony. Rent a car and explore the island with family in between!

Actually not bad hotel, but it doesnt worth 4stars, on the web it is only 3. Room service might clean your room while you are inside, unless you tell them do it later. Staff is friendly, except one tall guy, who tried food directly from the common dishes, without using any plate. As we knew later that guy was the... More

First off I must point out that we hadn't booked to stay at this hotel, as with all the other groups of young people we had been turned away from the hotel we were originally booked to stay at, Meropi Hotel. We were a group of 5 18 year old British females looking for a lively holiday. Unfortunately Malia Bay... More
