“Yiannis Manos”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

4 lads away for a week of partying in Malia. The hotel has a great pool and bar area, with all sorts of food being served throughout the day. Malia itself is a fantastic party place. A trip to star beach (20 mins on the quads) is a MUST! All day pool and foam parties and watersports etc. Only bad thing about the hotel was that they were very strict on charging 25 euros to bring someone back to your room (they also have to fill out insurance papers on the spot which is annoying). All in all, Yiannos Manos is a great place to get some sleep and relax during the day. I would be happy to stay there again in the future.

I was skeptical about going to Malia as it has a bit of a reputation for drunken teenagers, however it was a cheap week away! We chose Yiannis Manos Apartments and out of all the places to stay I'm glad we stayed here as it suited us. The rooms were basic but clean had 2 decent sized pools and the food wasn't amazing but for the price, was enjoyable for a quick lunch or breakfast. This hotel isn't right on the main strip which was good but the main strip was about a 10 minute walk away so it wasn't too out in the sticks. If you are after a quick break and don't want to get caught up in the clubbing scene too much then this place is what you're after.

Me and my boyfriend went for 2 weeks I was a bit wary about the hotel as we got it really cheap but when we arrived it was well maintained and very clean we were ground floor which was good nice sized rooms very basic but we eat out all the time anyways every other day maid came and cleaned got fresh towels and sheets bathroom small but did its job. Yiannis was a really nice guy. Some food at hotel nice others not so good but that could be down to preference. Not as cheap as places on strip but still reasonable. Large swimming pool nice and cleaned every night george the security guard is not at all scary he is really nice but admittedly does look scary the hotel is about 15 mins walk from strip which seems ages through day when hot but 4pm its a nice walk and when drunk it seems really quick we went to malia begining oct so pretty quiet will definately go back to malia and this hotel but maybe 2 weeks earlier dont want it too busy but a little busier would of been nice

me and my partner have just returned from 1 weeks stay here , although the strip was closed for the season there was still plenty to do . the hotel and staff was great, we had a studio for two people which could do with extra utensils in them ( no kettle!) so we improvised and bought a small pan ! the room was small but clean and the shower was tiny but did its job , the pool area and bar was immaculate and beautifully kept, all our meals purchased there were lovely and we had no complaints . the walk into malia takes 10 mins with stalis the next town taking 45 mins which was a lovely walk taking in the old shops , gift shops, bars and cafes . the locals were lovely and very friendly. take care when you get in a taxi and always ask how much before you get in , average tarriff is 7-10 euros. we will definately be returning here but out of season when its much quieter !!!!! thankyou yiannis manos

Such a brilliant week! as 2 17 year old girls, it was perfect.
When we first arrived, the staff were all very friendly and helpful to us.
We went straight to the pool where there were loads of sun loungers, and the pool bar and restaurant is also great.
As we went in the summer, the hotel mainly catered for 18-30's, there were drinking games and with happy hour, where the drinks were cheap.
Everyone made you feel really welcome.
The rooms were of a good size, and had everything you needed for self- catering.
Beds were fine, a bit uncomfy.
There was a really nice security Guard that made sure everything was safe at night whilst you were out, all the other staff were also very young and gave you advice on where the best places were to go!
The hotel is the perfect location as it is about 10 minutes away from the strip but when you're walking there drunk you don't notice you have been walking for long. Also, on the way to the main strip there are loads of bars... our favourite was Havanna!
all round Perfect holiday for our first Girls holiday! we also made loads of friends :) Definitely going back there.
OOOH AHH MALIA!

I had a great time at Yiannis Manos, the room we stayed in was a studio the only down side to the room was the toilet. Our toilet leaked every time we flushed it, we went and told reception and they had this sorted within an hour. Also we had a chair broken outside of our room which wasn't us but we still had to pay as someone swapped it! The bar staff were great and every time we went into reception they said hello which was nice. We went to the water city and on the booze cruise, i would recommend pre drinking before going on the booze cruise! Also we went out on the Malia strip at night and my friend left her bag on the chair she was near and within seconds it had disappeared so keep your things with you at all times! The bag had our room key in so we had to have our locks changed and had to wait until around 9 o clock for reception to open. KEEP YOUR BAGS WITH YOU! Also George isn't as scary as everyone says hes got such a soft side haha! All in all i would stay here again :)
