Nice place, really good spent money.
We had a great times in entire country, hotel was smashing good.
Nice personnel and good meal are a must and you can find such things in this hotel.
No worries about rooms, clean and fine.
Worth of that money

Me and my friend spent two weeks in this lovely hotel. We really enjoyed our stay, location of the hotel was excellent, it was just in centre of Malia next to the nice sandy beach. Staff of the hotel was very friendly, Mr. Manolis at reception, Mr. Kosmas in restaurant, everyone was trying to take care of us. Even manager of the hotel takes care about his clients which is really rare. And food in the restaurant was just amazing, one night seafood night, then barbecue, greek cuisine. I cannot say even one bad word. We will definitely come back and recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms in deluxe building are just on the beach

Our holiday at the High Beach resort in Malia, Crete was enjoyable, although there were a few set backs. On a positive note, the food was of a decent standard with fair choice. Moreover, the staff were generally pleasant, in particular the managerial and restaurant staff and Tony the bar man; who made our stay!! However, as a group of young British girls, in a majority German hotel, we did experience some problems. These problems took the form of an incredibly unpleasant woman, manning the housekeeping staff. Although, our rooms were not immaculate they were fairly tidy with little issue for complaint. However,this member of staff took it upon herself to reprimand us and invade our privacy by taking photographs whilst we slept. Furthermore, the security guard, whom we nick-named Winston (see title) was unnecessary violent with little provocation. Following a night out, a group of friends who kindly walked us back were attacked physically without need; this was uncalled for as prior to the attack no words of explanation or argument were exchanged. Overall, although we enjoyed our stay, this hotel is not suitable for young British people, as often we felt we were treated of a lower standard to the other guests, who were generally families. We would have freely given this hotel a four star rating had these issues not occurred. However, other hotel guests keep an eye out for Tony, he is fab!!
