We have just arrived back from the Cretan Malia Park so I thought I would share our experiences with you while they are still fresh.
We stayed all inclusive for the first time and felt compelled to eat and drink as mush as possible to get our monies worth, regulars to this hotel tended to be half board so make your own mind up what your best option is financially.
The food was very nice and so much choice at every sitting, including breakfast, if you want chocolate sponge and custard for breakfast it was there. Every style to suit every taste, we could not fault it, simply outstanding.
The staff on the whole were friendly, especially at the lobby bar. Overall we felt we were noticed and not just another punter who would disappear after a week. On one occasion we made a comment about something and out of the blue it was resolved to our entire satisfaction, they did not have to do this and to be honest they had to go out of their way to achieve this outcome.
We had a ground floor apartment / bungalow overlooking the pool, it was really nice and if we fancied the beech for a few hours it was literally 1 minutes walk from that location. The apartment was small but so what we were only in it to sleep. The beds have those annoying liquid proof covers on so take it off or you will be very hot during the night. The air con was effective and quiet.
The entertainment team or animation team were a friendly bunch and did all they could with the resources available. It was disappointing that we did not see any top rate acts flown in from the UK like other Thomson people at other hotels got to see. Maybe we were unlucky that week or perhaps that hotel just does not get them at all!!
This is definitely the holiday for you if you want peace and quiet, the very high majority of the guests were retired and German and kept themselves to themselves.
So to summarise the food, cleanliness, friendliness were great, the entertainment somewhat basic but delivered with great enthusiasm from a fantastic animation team.
We booked an adults only holiday with Thomson's for some peace and quiet and were surprised at the number of babies and children who were there. This did not turn out to be a problem for us but if you are by the pool and 6 children are splashing and screaming about it might be for you!!
