ive been home about 7 hours after staying here for a week and it was so good i had to write a review straight away. Booked through thomas cook for 18-30's as a last minute deal and wasn't to sure what to expect, upon arrival we was given shots (bonus). The staff at the hotel are loverly, couldn't ask for anyone nicer or caring, the hotel is a 5-10 minute walk from the strip, close enough to walk to but far enough to get a goods nights sleep. a 2 minute walk from the local shops. Hotel as 2 pools and 2 bars, one being 24 hours, food was nice and cheap and affordable also were drinks. Rooms were basic but were clean and cleaned 3 times a week whilst the bedding was changed twice and so were towels. Wifi is available at reception and the terrace outside. If you are going with club 18-30s, do not buy ANYTHING from the reps, its a rip off, you can get the deals on the strip for a fraction of the price and all the people that bought into it during my stay said it wasnt worth the money, the reps are only there to get money out of you but when me and my friends told them we didnt want to buy anything they were still pleasant through out our stay and always made conversation. Remember to check the damages list shown in your room, it will make you tip toe around the room to make sure you dont break anything as the fines are expensive. The hotel isnt massive and is based into blocks but making friends wasnt a problem and everyone was loverly. there is a back road to the strip that comes of the main road, do not walk down there alone if its 2 of you take the main road as muggings and assualts have happened down there before. other than that there was no faults at all with eltina, brilliant hotel possibly the best in malia.
