The Malia beach is a nice hotel right at the beach. The beach is sandy in general, but there are a lot of rocks when you go into the water. We are not in the main building, but in a building next to it. The room is a bit old, but everything is clean. The food is good with a... More

Buffet quite good and rich selection Rooms are worn down, but clean. Hotel is directly at the beach Sufficient free beach chairs with umbrellas are available at the pool for free. 5€ for beach chairs directly at the beach but pool is very close to the beach anyway! Staff is friendly & helpful.

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.
