The hotel is on the beach. It's a family business. Also, the hotel is very clean. Everything it's ok. Nothing to complain about. It's perfect for a trip in Malia, Crete. I will probably come back next year. You must go in September because then it's the Tourist Festival which is really entertaining and funny. And also really gooooood food.

Just spent two weeks at La Playa apts and we loved it! Location is fabulous , apts and pool / bar area very clean and well kept. The family who run it are very friendly and welcoming.

Negative points: - Old hotel and needs a makeover - our room had a very small bathroom. No shower curtain so the water was going everywhere - usually no hot water in the mornings - the kitchenette is very poor and old, cooking is inconvenient. A room for 2 is literally provided with 2 forks, 2 knives,... No dish washing...

We reserved a room for 7 days, but when we get here they don't have a room for us. They made us move two times during our stay. Totally ruined our holiday. And the owner was very rude. Shouted at us that we must move. Cause he was so greedy taking people in when the hotel was full. Don't come...

The staff was really rude.in the middle of our holiday here they moved us in a different room without even tell us personally or apologising . There was no atmosphere at the bar/pool at all. You can't use the pool after 7 pm because "it's being cleaned" Food was uncooked and customer service ridiculous. 50 euros charge for 7 days...
