Hotel staff made the experience special. The hotel staff made sur always to go the extra mile to accommodate requests or to make it pleasant. I wish their was better options food-wise when you don’t eat meet. The fish recipes were very similar with tomato or creamy sauce etc maybe some more basic recipes could be a plus. Other than this suggestion the rest was great. I would recommend very nice beach with beautiful sunset.

Our stay at High Beach exceeded our expectations! We stayed in the deluxe room, it was fresh, beautiful and very clean (like in the pictures). Hotel area is beautiful with wonderful greenery. The beach was superb (with deluxe room you have reserved sunbeds at the beach!). Some cocktails were included with AI at the beach bar wich was a nice surprise. I was happy with the food. There were several vegetarian and healthy options available every day. Like different salads, legumes, grains, appetizers. Also 10-15 types of different desserts + ice cream 😋. The staff was friendly and helpful. I honestly don't have any complaints. We loved our stay!

The hotel "High beach" is located in the village of Malia in Crete. We have already been here several times, but have not traveled abroad in recent years. And finally we are here! It's great to discover new places, but it's good to return to a tested hotel The hotel is completely renovated All furniture is new and very high quality. But I especially appreciate the wonderful mattresses, the pillow menu and the wonderful linens. For me, 3 main things are important: a good bed, good food and a good beach All these 3 things here in the hotel I can rate at the highest level. In the main restaurant is on a buffet The food is varied ,really homemade. But restaurant "Elia"is for gourmets. Most of the dishes are fish and seafood (you will never forget the cuttlefish in its own ink), but of course there is also excellent local lamb There are some very interesting local dishes. We tried "artichokes with snails", we highly recommend it to everyone. Large selection of wines The new bar "Romantic Balcony Bar" is open on a high terrace with a beautiful view of the sea. This bar serves elite drinks Finally, I'll talk about the beach. The beach belonging to the hotel is long and wide. The equipment on the beach is excellent. Opposite the beach is a small island, there is a church.Many people like to swim there. We like walking along the beach, we can walk for a long time on the soft sand This year we did not fail with the choice of the hotel. As always, the hotel High beach makes us happy.
