we booked this hotel as late deal at a very low price (and so did not expect much!). We are a couple in our mid twenties, and although we knew this was an 18-30s holiday we only wanted a break away. upon arrival we felt the reps where a bit of a let down, but once we where walked through the hotel grounds to our room we where pleasantly surprised by the Eltina! The hotel is brilliantly maintained, with 2 well kept pools, nice gardens and the buildings themselves are immaculate (especially compared to other hotels we have seen on our visit to Malia)! the room was tidy with good facilities (as we did alot of our own cooking) and within walking distance of central Malia and the beach. The Old Town is a must on a visit to Malia! The staff at the Eltina really made our holiday for us and we couldnt have asked for more. We would definately come back again and would recommend to anyone! Thank you Eltina!
