4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I always judge how good a holiday is by how sad I am to leave. We didn't want to go home and are already planning to return. We stayed half board in a presidential 2 bed Vila, (with private pool) from the 13th of August for 2 weeks. As many other reviews have stated, the resort is peaceful and kept... More

Get a presidential suite, relax and chill poolside. If you need anything the staff are brilliant. There's plenty of supermarkets in the new town to stock up the fridge. Always eat in the old town if dining out. Kalesma, toto lotto, San Giorgio and petrinos are amazing. This is a great hotel and a lovely part of the world .... More

My wife, my two boys (aged 12 and 9) and I returned from a two week main summer break at the Royal Heights in Malia, Crete two days ago and we can highly recommend the place. It is probably the most tranquil and relaxing break we have ever had. Moreover it has everything as a family we could have needed.... More

I really don't want to encourage people to go here in case I spoil it for myself. The pool was brilliant no towels on beds, plenty for everyone. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Food was excellent with prices comparable to the restaurants in Old Malia. 20 minute walk down fairly steep hill isolates the hotel (Thank goodness)... More

It happened for someone to tell me check Royal Heights in Malia, you might find what you are looking for... To be honest this was my first visit in this Resort even though I know the area pretty well.. We were looking a place to accommodate and organise an event for a special day in the heart of summer. I... More

We spent a week in this excellent hotel and cannot recommend it enough. It was spotlessly clean with extremely welcoming staff and had a massive swimming pool. The restaurant was superb and consequently we ate there every night of our stay. We'd definitely return.

This was our third visit to this gem of a hotel. We stayed in villa 401 which has two bedrooms, a good sized pool and garden. It also benefits from not having steps up to the villa. The villa itself is well equipped with a good living area and two good sized bedrooms. We stayed half board and the food... More

Back for a second visit - 2 years after the last. Love this hotel - the peace and quiet and privacy. Stayed in a better villa this time with a sea view - and again a private pool and enjoyed it just as much. The only fault I can find is the same as the last time - dinner. Breakfast... More

Just back a few days ago from a Presidential Villa at the Royal Heights for 2 weeks, half board. First time to ever give 5 stars to a hotel and first time I have considered re-booking before we came home. GOOD POINTS: ACCOMMODATION was spotless and everything worked well with the air con and fridge being particularly effective / useful.... More
