Myself and 14 of my friends travelled to Malia for a pretty crazy holiday! We had just left 6th year (Scottish school!) and we were looking for an amazing holiday and an amazing hotel. When my friends and I first arrived at the hotel it was about 10pm at night and the hotel was covered with lovely lights around the pools and around the restaurant and bar area. It was really lovely for a Malia hotel! The rooms were clean, but pretty basic, but it's Malia and it's really all you need! You do have to pay for Air Con, but trust me...if you and a friend split it then I would definitely get it! It was amazing to walk into your room after a day by the pool and your room is lovely and cold haha!
The walk to the strip is about a 10-15 minute walk away and there is quite a strange Grecian graveyard on the way to and from the strip, but as long as you travel in groups more than two you will be fine...it's honestly not as bad as it sounds haha!
The people who worked in the hotel were lovely! So kind and so funny, and they were always up for a good time, even at 5am in the morning!
For a lot of people, the overall security is a big thing (well it was for me and my parents sanity haha). The security guards were lovely and they learned who were staying at the hotel and who weren't very quickly. This has it's pros and cons, as you felt safe in their hands but after a certain time you couldn't bring anyone back to the hotel. We had other friends staying in another hotel and they were a bit weird about them being there after we had came back from the strip. However, during the day the hotel were more than happy to let them come to our hotel to enjoy the pools and the bars!
There is security deposit boxes in the hotel reception and there is always someone attending the reception area during the day, at night the reception area is locked and looked over by the security guards.
Overall, my holiday was amazing and the hotel really did make it that extra bit special! Apparently it's the second best hotel in Malia...but I would give it the number one spot! Enjoy!!!
