A short summary for those who don't want to read the whole thing: the hotel is lovely, located nearby a lively centre. The beach is a little bit further than said. No noise complaints whatsoever, the people are super friendly and the one-room apartments are big enough for two people. The matresses are a little hard and the shower is... More

First impressions were good, clean and friendly staff! Photos are a little misleading, we all definitely expected a lot more! Location was not suitable for a family holiday especially as malias strip is round the corner. Beaches located near by were very disappointing mainly due to the strength of the waves- very hard to swim in. The town next to... More

Very basic. Shower soaked the room - great for the mosquitoes. Very few people there. The worst was the state of the mattresses. See photos. Disgusting!!. Would not recommend. They need to burn all the mattresses and get fresh ones before allowing people to stay there.

Great hotel with amazing service and greek hospitality. We stayed for a few nights in July and had a really fun time- the hotel is located just a few minutes walking distance from the beach, all the good restaurants and all the bars/clubs on beach road. Although the hotel is so close to all the restaurants/bars/clubs, it is still very... More

We had a lovely time at Golden Bay, Malia, although we visited the place at a very quiet period (April). The owner and staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were very comforable and clean and the whole atmosphere was very beautiful and romantic with the swimming pool and the lovely gardens. I would certainly recommend it for couples... More
