If you're on a budget this is a great little place to stay. It is a very basic apartment but well worth it. We had a top floor apartment with balcony which is lovely for breakfast in the sunshine. The room itself was very clean and consisted of a little kitchenette (with toaster, kettle and electric hob as well as... More

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... More

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.

Where do I start here... We arrived a week ago and stayed in room 125 which is a low pool level room which was incredibly spotless. We enjoyed breakfast on our terrace each morning as we bought coffee from home and bought fabulous croissants from the bakers 3 doors down and also they make amazing Greek pastries and filled baguettes...
