Had a fab time at this resort. Wanted a last minute cheap getaway and I couldn't honestly fault this place. We booked through Olympic Holidays and read all reviews on tripadvisor and wasn't disappointed at all. I would imagine that people in their late 40's as am I would be worried about going as Malia has a reputation for young party people. However, we found the resort a good mixture and not as many young people. We couldn't fault Yiannis Manos at all. The room that we were allocated (201) was very clean with the linen smelling nice and fresh and for once the beds were very comfortable. The room was very basic with minimum utensils, but that didn't bother us as we knew we would be eating out all the time although there were enough plates, cutlery, cups & glasses for breakfast on the terrace overlooking the beautiful pool. The cleaner came in every other day with clean towels and to empty bins, sweep & mop. The bedding was changed mid week and as we were only there for 1 week that wasn't a problem. There is a list in the rooms of charges if you cause damages. I for one think this is very reasonable, if they had to cover the cost for every breakage the complex would not be in business and I'm sure there is quite a lot in the 'mad season'. You can eat on the complex as Aris the chef does excellent food or there are many tavernas for you to choose from, all very reasonably priced. The complex is about a 10-15 min walk from the main strip which some people did say was far to walk however, if it was closer you would hear more noise from the strip, also it was a good way to walk of your evening meal. You could also get a taxi near McDonalds for around €6-7. Illianna was a great host behind the bar together with Manos & Stephanos with their cheeky banter, especially Illianna who had a smile for every person that was served. She worked long hours 7 days a week and still managed to laugh and joke with all the guests. Elaina who works on reception was very helpful also as we had problems getting connected to the Wi-Fi but she got it sorted for us and finally George the night watchman who sat outside all night near the gates making sure there was no trouble from unwanted guest's and that the complex was safe and secure. I wouldn't hesitate to go back to Yiannis Manos and would recommend anyone thinking of going to Malia to check this complex out first!
