Hotel building, room and facilities are relatively good. Well outside noise insulated rooms, efficient air conditioning. Nothing to point out really maybe except little small bathroom. No problems with safe parking. Internet was always working without problems, staying online was absolutely fine! Pool was spacious however shallow area for small kids is too small. A plus point is that there... More

Absolutely loved this hotel. Staff are very helpful and very friendly. Rooms fairly basic, but do the job fine. Water provided and rooms cleaned every day. All in good condition, pool is the best we saw in Malia and hotel is extremely quiet, plus we had free transfers, very impressed with it!

We are a family of 4 and found this hotel was great particularly loved the sun beds and the pool! Our rooms we're lovely and comfy and very clean and daily serviced. Breakfast was good and fresh - would have been nice to have freshly squeezed orange juice and I recommend taking our English tea 😀 but that is just... More

We spent a week here and enjoyed every minute. The hotel itself was clean and well kept. All of the staff were friendly and helpful and did all they could to make us feel welcome. A quiet hotel both during the day and the evenings. Perfect for relaxing or a family holiday with young children. We took a 5 year... More

We stopped over at this hotel en-route to Santorini. Really good staff & pool....our 2-bed apartment had a great view & good facilities. The beds though were rock hard & the air conditioning a bit iffy !

The hotel and the service is very good. The hotel is located 1 km from the old town of Malia with nice traditional Greek tavernas and restaurants. We stayed for 14 days and are very happy to recommend this hotel to others that want a nice and quite hotel with or without family.

The hotel staff are so friendly and provided a great service. The surroundings and views are amazing, for a hotel so close to malia I was... More

The hotel is in an excellent position, a quiet area but very close to everything. It is about 5-10 mins walk to The Strip, 5-10 mins walk to the Old Town and about 10-15 Mins walk to Stalis. The room was very clean, free bottled water provided every day and a free airport transfer (which our travel agents didn't tell... More

This is a lovely hotel. We went as a group of lads and I must stress it's not really a hotel for groups, even though we had an amazing time. They did try to send us to a 18-25 hotel but we refused to leave. They just asked us to keep the noise down and stuff. The good points were... More
