“Lovely apartments,could be anywhere...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2009

Stayed at the Drossia Palms with my daughter (other daughter lives in Malia).
I'd been to Malia before but stayed with my daughter, so I wasn't quite sure what to expect (being used to half board hotels!!). BUT I was extremely impressed with everything about the Drossia Palms. From arriving (after a 5 hour delay) it was like walking into a little bit of paradise. You walk through a narrow alley, which leads into a palmed bar (24hour) and swimming pool area.
Gregory was very welcoming - we were a bit wrecked.
The room was lovely and clean - quite a small kitchenette area (but whio wants to cook). The maid service was probably better than I thought it would be. The bar and pool in the day time was kept very clean. Though we did do end of May beginning of June.
Night - despite the closeness to the main street we heard no noise, though the apartments are further away from the main noiser bars.
If you are going to Malia try the Baan Thai - lovely restaurant just past The Venue - first class food.
