we went in july 2012 for 2 weeks and we had a good holiday but the room was a tip. we were put in a room which was dangerous enough to get to when sober nevermind with a few drinks! when we arrived, there were hairs all over the floor. definitely hadn't been cleaned. the floor wasnt cleaned for the whole 2 weeks we were there. we had ants crawling through the wall all over the worktop and all over the floor! it was meant to be 'self catering' but we had one pot, a pasta drainer and no utensils! the 1st 3 nights we got told off for sitting on the balcony chatting and playing music after 11 when we weren't even loud. was ridiculous! you have to walk to your room in complete silence or you are told to be quiet! the security man with dark hair is a right perv! the hotel is a good 30 min walk from the beach. the bar staff were nice 1st week but not so nice 2nd! the manager is fine aslong as u don't break anything and you stay on his good side! wouldn't recommend malia for 2 weeks- bit repetitive, but good for one week. request a room above the reception as they are nicer than rooms in the further away buildings. definitely recommend the silent disco in candy for a gd night out!
