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

Me and my 4 friends (male aged 21) stayed here in August 2010. We felt it was good for our purpose of having the all inclusive drinks but not the best hotel ever. The rooms were very clean and cleaned daily. The staff were generally very helpful and the pool bar staff were very friendly. However the food was terrible.... More

The hotel was clean, welcoming and well managed,. The staff were without exception very friendly and helpful. The food was very good for all inclusive but I would have liked the choice of going half board and used the tavernas a bit more. The guy at Malia cars just down the road was cheap and very helpful with advice for... More

We were transferred to the Malia Bay hotel after our initial hotel was overbooked. We had a lovely room with beautiful views of the sea. The staff went above and beyond to ensure that we had a nice stay from a gently hello in the morning to the entertainment in the evening. We especially appreciated the advice from Emi one... More
