11 of us stayed at Real Palace for a week at the end of June/early July. The pool was always clean and well maintained, the bar was well priced drinks wise but food was a little expensive! Rooms were basic but were perfect for what we required. Wifi was free but a bit temperamental at times, probably due to demand.
Only downside we found was the safety deposit boxes, when recommended to purchase one, we did, but we found that our key opened everyone else's boxes too, meaning that it was not very secure at all. As a result we tried to get a refund on the money we paid, but when we asked Manos, one of the owners, he claimed that he had already paid tax on our payment so could not offer us a refund (It was 1am Greek Time!). Added to this the fact that if you do come to Malia, you'll realise hardly anyone pays taxes anyway! However apart from this everything was great at Real Palace, we managed without air con so if you're looking to save money, try the first night or so without air con! Finally, a few reviews on here say it's a long walk to the strip, it really isn't, I'd say 10-15 minutes to get to the main strip, nothing more.
