I'm struggling to find any way of describing Primavera beyond simply saying, 'thank you'. With it being a 5 minute walk from the strip we didn't have to stumble too far home after a night (or early morning) out, and its also right next to the beach and plenty of amazing restaurants. But my main thank you has to go to the staff at Primavera. Everyone from the cleaners right up to Nikos, the owner were fantastic and really made you feel at home on your holiday. I can't speak highly enough about Nikos and his wonderful family, nor the staff he employs to work there. He's such a friendly bloke, even when you bump into him outside of the hotel he's full of conversation and smiles. Seriously, I think I'm in love.

Primavera was perfect for us on our holiday- perfect location right by the beach and less than a 5 minute walk to the strip, clean and nice rooms, brilliant bar with Oscar's and really friendly and helpful staff. Nikos absolute legend, helpful with anything you could ask him and the reps are a great laugh too. Recommend primavera very strongly to anyone going to Malia!

We stayed here after being let down a week before our stay by another hotel with a huge problem with over-booking. As this was our second choice we didn't really expect much, but I can honestly say I see it as a lucky escape! Primavera was absolutely amazing, lovely managers Nikos and Maria cannot do enough for you and make you feel so welcome from the start.

Our room was the most amazing surprise, the pictures do not do it justice. We had a spacious bathroom, two bedrooms, kitchen area and glass balcony overlooking the pool, the perfect place to relax after a crazy night on the strip.

Location is perfect. 2 mins from the strip and from the beach aswell which is hard to find! It is also a safer location then other hotels further down the strip. Cannot recommend this place enough, can't think of one bad aspect of the hotel.

Less then 5minutes from the strip, cheap (and good) alcohol. Friendly, family owned, hotel with the funniest reps that you can have such a laugh with. Nokia is such an amazing guy and will get you sorted with any problems you may have - even lent me 20euros when I rinsed it all out on the strip.

For a group of girls on their 'girls holiday' this is just what we wanted. Although the website said check in from 4, we arrived a few hours prior to this and were shown straight to our rooms after our welcome drink. The staff were very friendly and welcoming and made us feel comfortable straight away. Food and drinks in the bar were very reasonably priced and the bar staff in the evening were great. The rooms actually look like the picture which we were surprised about based on some of the horror stories you here about hotels in Malia.

Overall a great holiday, the hotel was a great place to eat during the day, relax by the pool and start out evening out before heading to the strip. We were all really sad to be leaving. The location of the hotel is also great, at the beach end of the strip. You could easily walk to the other end of the strip within 15minutes or so.

Best hotel to stay in for the people who work there!!
Everyone friendly and such a laugh, didn't want to leave because of Kye, Nick, Hannah & Charlotte!!

Would definitely recommend using this hotel if you want a laugh though the day & night before going out!

Nikos & Maria are lovely and make you feel at home & safe! Not far away from the strip but not too close to get all the noise. Best Hotel we've stayed in for the staff and the Hotel itself.

Love all you guys from Holly, Georgina, Shannon & Beckie xx
