Have just returned from a week's AI holiday at the Solimar Ruby. I really don't understand the reviews from the Brits on here. We were a party of six and trust me, we are very English and can be very loud! We were made to feel extremely welcome by all the staff, especially Anna and the rest of the bar... More

Made to feel very uncomfortable by bar staff especially , as they would deliberately ignore us and make jokes about us in Polish to other guests ( I know as speak basic... More

Booked this hotel for me and a friend and we were the only English people there. This wouldn't off been a problem but after ordering drinks on arrival before the bar closed we were told that 'it's not that kind of hotel' insinuating that because we were in our 20's and chatted outside to a few other English people that...

Regret the decision of staying in this hotel. The staff were extremely helpful and the rooms were very spacious and the pool was a good size with sun beds available throughout the day. 5-10 minute walk from strip so a good distance however food offered was not so good, only seemed to be fresh at the beginning of the week...

I've recently just come home from an amazing girls holiday in Malia and a delightful stay in this hotel. When we arrived at this hotel we were told our rooms were double booked for three days, however instead of allowing us to get annoyed the hotel kindly paid for us to stay in a 5 star hotel on the beach...

Me and 3 other friends came here for weeks holiday. The hotel is very clean and tidy with very friendly and helpful staff apart from the rude maids who often threw a few of our make-up products in the bin. There was a few other teenage groups who we made friends with and there was a great atmosphere around the... More

I ended up staying here after a monumental cock up from Olympic Holidays/ Holiday Gems landing us in a hotel that didn't even exist and this was all they could offer at short notice turning up in Malia. My friend and I aged 23 and 24 stayed here for a week from 16th June. On first impressions the hotel seemed... More
