The description of the hotel given when we booked was spot on; basic room with tiny kitchenette and bathroom. The kitchen facilities weren't brilliant but like most people going to malia we either just snacked in our room (with food bought from the supermarket 50 metres from hotel..ideal!) or we ate out. Bathroom was a bit dodgy, the door didn't lock and the shower ran luke warm and quite weak...not that it mattered to us particularly.
I would say the hotel is the ideal location in malia, about a 4/5 minute walk to the strip at most...but once you're at the hotel, you can't hear the music or anything so providing people in the hotel aren't too bad...a good night's sleep is easily achievable! There is also a road directly opposite the hotel that will lead you to the beach in about 2 minutes...this is a quieter stretch of beach but has a nice bar/cafe and music playing and the guy working there is very friendly!
The bar attached to the hotel and pool is a really good place to start the night before heading to the strip, guys behind the bar really friendly and even came out with us on our last night!
Everyone staying in the hotel seemed to be about 18-24...we met some really good people there...and the security guard was pretty chilled about them being in our room at night and stuff although he is careful only to let hotel guests into the grounds. Some people have written that the security guard and hotel staff were rude and not helpful etc...i would have to disagree and say that in general they were polite and relaxed...always said hello when we went through reception and that.
Great week, would definitely go back to malia and stay here again.
