“nico is a boss”
Reviewed April 23, 2013

went mirage last year 2012 august the rooms was basic but what do want I would say get a safe ....its right on the strip near all best clubs and bars . The staff was welcoming and up for a laugh ..food was better than I thought it would be considering me and my mates had kfc on strip and chicken wing was still bleeding as if someone just pulled it of a live chicken out back......back on track drink prices was little expensive but in fairness they was like 85% alcohol so can't complain pool wasn't bad everyone in hotel was alright made few good friends had loads of good laughs.. they let you choose music at the bar no matter what it is so it was always dup-step/dnb for me lol but the thing what really made it a good time at mirage was Nico the funniest man I have ever met if your decent to him he's top man if you go and get on with Nico ask him bout the CUCMBER your in for a good time if you show them respect if I go back to Malia theres only one place to stay ......here !!!!!!!!!!!!

This hotel is not as bad as it is made out to be. The room is very basic. You have a bed, sink, fridge, lavatory and shower, but, when you are on a club 18-30 holiday and intend on partying while there, do you require luxury? The hotel bar does a great selection of food at reasonable prices. The staff are very friendly. We had no problems with our room. The made came every second day. We named her consula. The only problem I found with this hotel is the fact that it is right on the strip. The location is indeed excellent, but trying to get a sleep is a nightmare. It is literally in the back garden of a night club. I was staying at this establishment for 2 weeks. One night we decided not to go out as we had literally partied non stop, and trying to get to sleep with the noise was horrendous. Most other nights it was fine as I was intoxicated. If you are looking to party non stop, stay here. If you ain't, then please do stay else where. Overall, the hotel is pretty good!

After reading the reviews last year before i headed out to Malia i was really concerned we were going to have a rubbish time. If you are on a 18-30s holiday chances are you probably arent going to be sitting in your room much of the time so shouldnt expect the works! The rooms were very basic but were clean enough. They are very strict about stains/damage but we were just carefull with makeup ect and never got charged. However it might be a good idea to take a sheet with you instead of using theres, that way they cant charge you. The shower was pretty rubbish as you had to balance it up haha but it still done its job, our friends shower in the next room was find however so i guess its just luck. The Mirage is in an EXCELLENT location, you literally walk 30 seconds and you are on the strip, so no long walks home! overall i had an amazing time in Malia and would say the Mirage is perfect for your typical girls/lads holiday as long as you are fine with basic accommodation!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with built in air con! we had to pay for a fan that did not do the best of jobs!

well before going i read the reviews on here and it scared the living [--] out of me! but you know what as soon as i got there i was actually happy with the hotel. ok the rooms arent the biggest and there isnt much of a kitchenette but it was good. we didnt get fined anything cos we kept our room clean and didnt be stupid and get uv paint all over the room and bedding. we took our own pillow cases and top sheets and towels. it is a good idea to do that just incase you do get them stained its only your own stuff so they wont mind. they dont give you towels there you have to pay €20 deposit for them but you probs wont get it back. we did lose a glass somehow but most of the bars use the same glasses so we went and nicked one of them instead. the safe and aircon are actually worth it. but the air con doesnt work with the doors open. they do play music all night long but there is a shutter on the balcony door so we just shut that and the door and it blocks alot of the sound out. the reps were really not the best but oh well. we went to reflex chasers and union bar. got pretty much 3 drinks and shots and a fish bowl at most for €5 but we are girls and boys will not get the same deals but still its good. the alcohol isnt watered down out there its just cheaper alcohol so isnt as strong so get a triple :)

The hotel was amazing, also very clean. the strip was as soon as you walked out your door. the only thing that let me down was getting charged 30 euros for UV paint on the bed, i refused to pay this and they wouldn't give me my passport back. they will take your passport of you when you get there, if you don't want them to have it say no, 1 of my mates kept her own passport. Niko works behind the bar he is so friendly and lively, hes just amazing. anyone wanting to do the activities. DO THE SILENT DISCO! any one whos always up for a laugh you'll love it!!! the boys are crazy over there so girls watch out ;D!

Well it was on the strip as promised but with everything closing at 5am you can still grab a few hours kip. The fines are hefty but if you keep the stuff clean you will be ok... if your doing uv party and stuff take your own sheet and pillow case will save u 40 euro fine. Overall its a good place to be, Niko (night time bar man) is hilarious and makes the hotel an 18-30s resort to be fair because the reps are really crap compared to other 18-30s holidays iv been on. its a 24 hour bar and although more expensive than the bars on the strip its not too bad. All the drinks wherever you go are watered down but that's why you get 3 drinks and 2 shots for 5 euro. I recommend zoo bar and WKD bar for the best alcohol and then hit cloud 9 and banana club after for the clubs. Air con and safe is very cheap too and i highly recommend.

Overall not a bad hotel but would not return to Malia.

Room Tip: Top floor rooms are the best dont get people running up and down and banging on your doors.

Best week of my life so far their, 1 minute if that from the strip, 24 hour bar, great pool, great area, bedrooms are ok if you even need to use them. Niko is a legend and everyone gets on and has a laugh. Felt surreal and I was loving every minute. AUGUST 10TH - 17TH. 2 computers their both with me and my lots pictures as the background hopefully still there.

Room Tip: Rooms in the yellow building seemed to be alot nicer.
