“Best hotel in malia!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014 via mobile

2nd time at this hotel and again it was brilliant! It is by no means the ritz, which I think some wrongly expect on here, but it is great for holidays with friends! The hotel is clean and secure, with the world greatest security guy mike, who can be stern and scary at first but is a little pussy cat at heart! He loves the old '50 euro fine' threat which I was actually punished with, but he is only trying to keep the place civilised! I have visited resorts such as magaluf and Ayia napa and hotels there are no where near the standard of philoxienia! The staff are also very friendly and welcoming, making your holiday even more enjoyable!

Stayed July 2013, traveled with friends

The taxi dropped me off at this hotel as most others in Malia are currently closed. The people were so friendly and helpful and gave me one of their newly renovated rooms, with TV, air con, shampoo and conditioner. The pool is amazing and the beer at the bar was good too.

Me and my three friends stayed at Philoxenia Hotel from the 23rd-30th August last year. The hotel was PERFECT. The bar was great because of the best barmen ever Kostah and Nas, they really made the holiday for us. The hotel is basically on the strip and over the road from mcdonalds!!! The beach is a five minute walk. The rooms were cleaned every other day which was just right! In all a perfect hotel for a perfect holiday! For the price this hotel is deffinatley worth it!!!!

I stayed in Philoxenia from 31st July 2012 for a week, with three other girls, when we checked in we were supposed to be staying in 2 different rooms but they weren't ready so we were given a 4 bed for the first couple of days which was on the ground floor and was absolutely lovely, very clean and the air con was great. when we eventually got moved me and one of my friends had a 3 bedroom apartment, on the top floor of one block, the balcony was absolutely huge so was good for having pre drinks with people who we met in the hotel (sometimes we were told to turn the music down of a miserable man can't actually remember who he was), only downside was our air con was dodgy, but nothing we couldnt not live with for a week, my other friends apartments was only a 2 bed but was spacious enough and their air con was really good one night after somehow staying there i woke up shivering from being cold it was that good.

The day time round the pool was class, music playing constant and had such a lively atmosphere, the bar men and woman were so friendly and held drinking games later in the day, cheap prices for drinks too, also had a few meals in the hotel, for being in greece their full english was lovely.

The best part of the hotel was the location, couldnt have been better, wasn't completely on the strip but was literally the tiniest walk up the street and left and your at the first bar.

Would really recommend anyone to stay here wouldnt go anywhere else if I was to return to Malia, best hotel I've stayed in when on a 18-30 holiday.
