The hotel overall was great! The hotel is clean and well kept. The staff are helpful and very friendly. In a good location in terms of local shopping, Malia & Potamos beach also close. The all inclusive range of food and drink we could not fault. In a quiet and private location

How far is this hotel from the clubs and nightlife?
Sorry can’t help regarding room but would say that if you not happy with room ask to move .. we did and got a much better room and they were very helpful. Trips we went into town and booked from there because we got a better deal .. Greek evening was great .. unlimited wine good food and great dancing .. think the trips ranged from £25-40 each but definitely shop around don’t just do through Jet2 at the hotel .. hope this helps have a good holiday

Dear Guest, Annex rooms are part of Solimar Ruby Hotel but located approx 70 meters far from the main hotel building . Therefore the annex rooms have more "attractive" price. As about the All Inclusive programm, Annex rooms and Double rooms have exactly the same all inclusive package, and most of our guests like it a lot according to their feedback and their reviews you can see at the social media .!!!!! The Solimar Ruby Royal correct mentioned above from Dominica , is a specific section of the hotel, much more expensive which consists of Junior Suites and have some extra all inclusive options than the standard Dbl or annex rooms. Please apply to your travel agency which can provide you the complete description and services of our hotel , or apply at the hotels reception for all needed information. Looking forward to welcoming you to our hotel. Best regrds . Giorgos Chroniaris Hotel Manager.
