Hotel's Favorite
This was one of the best hotels I have stayed in so far. It offers everything you expect from a 5-stars hotel. I could list here so many great things that the hotel has offered, but I might miss some of them.. Let me try: The rooms are perfectly well-kept, bed linen, air conditioning... The view is stupendous. The location offers multiple swimming pools (for toddlers, one for both adults and small kids, another with infinite view to the ocean...) , while having a 10 meters distance private beach. Last, but not least: people. Every single person working in this hotel were absolutely amazing. From the waitresses to staff members, as well as the entertainment team could make us with a very positive energy, having fun and laughs. Osaid, Mirana, davide, Tere from a pink wave did a FANTASTIC job by entertaining the kids while parents could have some wine to relax, but as well involving parents on multiple activities like a crazy music quiz, entertaining all the audience. I'll definitely return to the hotel.

the staff is super friendly, and always willing to help. When we arrived our room was not ready, but they did everything to solve it as soon as possible. The only thing is that we asked for a room with a sea view, but they gave us a room with a view of a restaurant. When we said this at the front desk we were told that our travel agency booked ocean front and not ocean view. didn't know there's a difference... The price is the same as expensive though, didn't make sense at all. The cleaning girls always went out of their way to leave us a room not only clean but with towels in the shapes of elephants, swans and other animals. The Spa was also a good choice. The 3 girls who took care of me were very nice (Maria T. Eva, and I think the 3rd one is called Anja).

Was a bit dubious about booking a family holiday to Malia and am happy to say that I nothing to worry about. Although not quite in Malia, it was close enough if you wanted a night out. The hotel is set in beautiful surroundings and has a choice of pools to relaxing around, it has its own beach with free sunbeds. The beach is beautiful, clean and sandy with crystal clear waters. The array of food available throughout the day is spectacular and staff are always on hand offer friendly information if you are unfamiliar with any if the dishes. All in all, an excellent place to stay!

I dont normally write reviews, but always read them before I book a holiday so felt here goes. Came home yesterday from a 10 day stay at the hotel, two adults and two children age 9 and 11. I had booked a two bedroomed premium family room and looking at the pictures of the room on the website it looked very spacious. We arrived late and were given a tiny room across from the car park that was so small there was barely any room to open the cases in the floor space, this was not the 5 star experience I had paid for. I didnt feel that there was adequate space for the four of us, so contacted reception to ask if we could move rooms. They were lovely about it and we were offered a much bigger room( the room I thought I had booked) at no extra charge. The room was spacious and clean, although I would have much preferred proper cups to drink out of in the room rather than paper ones, paper cups dont say 5 star to me. Pool areas lovely and clean, although the pool hogging towel putter outers need to be shamed, we found there were plenty of sun beds for all. The absence of British tourists was a nice change and gave the place a much more cosmopolitan feel, which we loved. Food was amazing and plentiful and missing it already now we are home, the puddings especially. The lovely thing was there was no "kids area" like in some hotels, where they assume that all children just want to eat chicken nuggets and chips. One of our children is a fussy eater, but she loved the food and tried lots of new foods that were on offer. The customer service was exceptional at the hotel, the staff couldnt do enough for you and were so polite and friendly, would put UK hotels to shame. All in all a lovely break and we really enjoyed every minute.

I have just returned with my teenage son and husband. We nearly never booked with all The airport issues and every changing covid, but am so glad we did! What a gem of a place! Totally agree with other reviews, we were Bed and breakfast, loads of choice and lots of cheap eateries and supermarkets to support the other meal times. Ensure you go as far down the high street as you can, don’t just stay on the doorstep, turn right out of the hotel and eat by the sea every night, turn left And becomes more sparsely populated with tavernas. The high street as no pavement and can be busy at times with coaches and quads, it’s not a major problem just be mindful if with small children. The beach is literally outside your door, stunning views and always a sunlounger! Peak holidays season and still getting a bed by the main pool ( there are 6) at 9.30am on our way to breakfast! Excellent animation team, not In your face but there if you want it! I am already looking to go back next year which is very unusual to go back to a place twice, but it ticked all of our many boxes! And may even stay for 3 weeks!

We have been coming back to this hotel for several years now, and are always happy to come back! We really appreciate the warm welcome and friendly staff, who go out of their way to accommodate any requests. The hotel is split into several smaller areas and beaches, and so never feels overcrowded. The food is great with a large variety for breakfast and dinner, and you can have a more limited selection for lunch near the beach.
