The room itself was very clean and consisted of a little kitchenette (with toaster, kettle and electric hob as well as...

The hotel was clean and simple, perfect for a self-catering party holiday. The staff in the bar couldn't do enough to help you and make your stay perfect. The drinks weren't too expensive in comparison the rest of Malia which had strict minimum drink prices of around 5 Euros per drink. The only negatives would be the simplicity of the...

Excellent location, walking distance of the old town & 20 minutes to the beach. Nice pool and just far enough from the strip to be peaceful. Lovely friendly and hard working owners and staff. We had some wonderful meals and nice days out. Highly recommended. Malia was much nicer than I thought it would be.
