After reading reviews online, our group of 7 girls (17-18) were a little anxious about our stay at the studios, however on arrival we were greeted by Yolanda who was very welcoming and were shown our rooms. Yolanda was always happy to help with any questions or requests, as were the daughters that helped out in the pool bar.
The snacks served in the bar were cheap, tasty and would fill you until you went for an evening meal - also, the milkshakes that are served are amazing!! The pool area was always clean and you were able to either listen to the music chosen by George and Yolanda or you could ask to plug your iPod in and play your own music!
Our rooms were petite but had everything we needed and more; the kitchenette had a fridge with small freezer space, 2 cooking rings, a kettle, toaster and cutlery (pans, plates, forks etc). The bathroom was typically Greek, small but again has everything you need!
While staying here, I and my roommate managed to break a shower head but it was replaced without fee as we were told it was an old one so this was a pleasant suprise as we had read a review saying all breakages had to be paid for! The beds were comfortable and the rooms were cleaned every 2/3 days and the maid was always very friendly! Overall the apartments were clean, comfortable and very inviting
Malia strip is about a 10/15 minute walk away once you know how to get to it, which makes it very easy to get to but far enough away to have a peaceful rest during the day. I would DEFINITELY recommend the studio owners bar 'Brits Bar'. George is a lovely man who will welcome you with open arms, giving people who stay at his studios and respect them deals on drinks! He was always smiley and welcoming towards us and made our holiday brilliant!!
We are hoping to return next summer to Newcastle Studios, fantastic accommodation!
