Got back a week ago from malia! Was the best week of my life and my stay at happy days was indeed very happy!! The only thing I would mention was the fact the room wasn't cleaned once and the bed sheets wasn't changed throughout the week. Other than that the pool area was brilliant, plenty of sun beds etc. Pool bar had delicious food at very good prices. Not to mention the staff who were just so friendly and welcoming!! Would go back tomorrow if I could! Happy days!!!

I stayed here for 7 nights with my friends, it was a good stay in the sense that it was just a place for us to sleep really, the staff were nice, however the barman little Chris was abit pervy, also you don't wanna get on the wrong side of the staff cos they will screw you over, they keep all your passports and will NOT give them back if you misbehave. Also the rooms are very basic, YOU do not get a bed sheet so make sure you take one! (Which you shouldn't have to) also you will be given a towel and it won't be changed all week which is pretty disgusting so you should probably bring your own, you also have to buy your own toilet roll. I know that it's self catering but it's not somewhere you would want to cook as there was ants on the worktops and they were crawling all inside my hand luggage! Our door handle also came off very easily and they would of charged us for it but I managed to fix it! Whatever you do, DON'T get dragged in to doing the BBQ, it's a waste of money and the food is vile, I didn't eat any of it! Plus it's really not good entertainment! The food at the hotel is really bad and would advise you go elsewhere! It's about 20 mins away from the strip, and about an hour from the beach. There was many bad qualities about the hotel but if your just going to get drunk and party, then it's a ok stay.

As a group of 4 girls staying in this hotel we was pretty worried after reading the reviews on the arrival to the hotel at late hours we was warmly greeted by the staff and shown to the room she had put us in a studio room instead of two different rooms that help a lot the room was clean but very basic but what you would expect for the price we did not have any towels or covers in the room but as it was late we asked in the morning and they was very nice an got us some they cleaned and changed are covers and towels ones in the week the pool area and the bar food was stranded little chris did try to make us pay for the BBQ and when we said no he wasn't very impressed but he was fine with us after some comments say he's a pervert him and big chris just had banter! Dimitri was lovely you just have to show him respect he has to stay up all night telling people to be quite as there is a three year old little boy living across from the hotel are room was at the top of reception were he sat all night after we got in 3 4 5 in the morning we would sit on are balcony and talk for abit he never ones told us to shut it! In all this hotel was good for the location who goes on holiday to maila to sit in the hotel anyway!

Just come back from Malia, stayed in this hotel and loved it! The staff were so helpful and will do anything to help you, they have a laugh with you and are always asking if your ok and if they can get you anything, big chris will give banter you've just got to be able to take it, little chris georgia and faye are really friendly. The prices in the bar are reasonable and the food is amazing only 2.90 for a fry up! The BBQ is worth going to as its the only proper meal your probably going to have the whole time your there and the drinking games are fun and they get everyone involved even on the karaoke. The maids came in twice the seven says we were there, but who wants a maid cleaning your room the morning after a night out. The place was clean and they're constantly cleaning up any mess that you make in the bar and by the pool. Its only 5 minute walk away from the strip which is a bonus. It's worth going to and the bad reviews are probably only because they did something wrong and are bitter about it!

Just arrived back from Malia after staying at the crappy days. It was terrible the rooms were beyond basic and were not cleaned in all the 7 days I was there. My passport was taken and held hostage by the cheating staff. You have to pay for everything in the hotel even a flipping straw.
You don't get a sheet to cover yourself in bed or even toilet paper and the bathroom is DIRTY!
The furniture was broken when we arrive and they pulled a fast one on me and my friends by charging us for the broken furniture by speaking in their own language and making you pay. Too many rules feels like your in a prison. The staff are rude and ignorant. All the things listed on their website is a LIE!

DON'T GO HERE IN A MILLION YEARS YOU CAN DO SO MUCH BETTER AND CHEAPER. THEY SHOULD BE IILEGAL!!!

Room Tip: Rooms on the south side are quieter
