Review from a group of 20/21year old male gone to Malia for a 2week party holiday. the holiday was amazing and the hotel was good.
FIRST VIEW-when you first arrive the hotel actualy looks alot better than i expected it to and when you get inside it has a very old fashioned feel to it. the recptionist is friendly enough but will take your passport for the duration of the holiday (for damages, its like there power because they have them and u dont get them back till you are heading home).
ROOM- Small, clean and basic. beds ok comfort, toliet ok, shower cold at peak washing time approx 11pm-1am. when i did have a shower at 11am it was perfctly hot. no shower curtain so the bathroom does get soaked, be careful not to slip. AIR CON IS GREAT a must, got great sleeps because of it,infact my room mate was cold sometimes haha .having to buy a fridge is shocking but needed.
HOTEL/POOL- receptionist are nice usualy, if u are nice to them. so i just decided to be constantly freindly and stay in their good books. Safety deposit is at recption, i personly think its good like this and someone is always at recption so felt safe to use it (more charges tho). Pool is great, seems clean and 3m deep at deep end. Pool bar, family owned and people are lovley and friendly, just wat you need after a heavy hangover. i manily bought water (1euro), friend eat at the pool bar, extremely basic, i wouldnt eat there. Security at night- can be a bit scary but again i was nice and made 'friends'with them. yes.... 40euro to bring someone home ....MORE charges haha. security make sure ur quiet and sometimes follow you 2 room. they often had 2 let me in because my roommate was asleep and they were good about it. Cleaners- come in everyday for ur bins and i think every 3 days for towels, only had my bed changed and room cleaned once on a 2week holiday ... i was ok with this.
All in all, its a good hotel .. . just do not break anything or even hint at getting anything on ur sheets etc .. .its money money money money for them .. i would say thts the only bad thing
MALIA- EATING- personaly my fave was the UNION JACK or further down the strip .. THE BULL.. food v v good in both these places. HEAVEN is ok, good for fry up. Much further down the strip is a smoothie bar, think is a normal franchies u can get here but honestly made me feel so much better at times!!! get them!! mcdonalds,subway .. always there wen u need them..... pizza slice on the way home seemed like i couldnt say no.
MALIA- going out- DRINK BEFORE U GO OUT.... its all so good tho!! ZIG ZAG the best club
BARS- get ur deal get ur deals get ur deals!!! and ur holiday wont be that expensive (loft,wkd,brits)
GOOD [--] luck with the PR .. if you go u will know wat i mean
this holiday was the best holiday i have EVER been on, you will love it!! and malia holidays was part of the stories and fun
happy scottish boy!!!
