Just came back from Malia 13th-21st August. 5 girls on a lad's holiday! Absolutely magic! Sceptical about this hotel after reading such terrible reviews but would go back to the hotel without a doubt!
The owner is the woman (only scary if you're not on her good side, lovely if you're nice back), Lucky for us the rooms two floors above reception was really nice, good sized balcony, kitchenette etc. Bathrooms are a bit of a disgusting hole to be honest, showers have no doors or curtains so the bathroom turns into a swimming pool after one shower.
The Reps came up to sell us the whole package. Not knowing much about Malia and where/what to do we decided to go for it and shell out 200 Euros each. I would recommend this because they take you out so you can see a good idea of where to go, if you decide one night not to go with them or to leave after the first bar then don't stay with them!
The bar staff are brilliant! Basically if you are up for a laugh then you get free drinks. If you have a sour face and are a miserable grump then you pay.
One bonus is not having to get up early to get seats by the pool, 75% of the hotel are bedded all day so there is always sun loungers!
All in all magic hotel, magic place, would recommend to anyone looking for a smashin time.
