The hotel is about a mile from the main strip, but bars are within that mile, so no dramas there! The food was not very nice in my experience and nor the pool there was to much cloride in it so it hurt your eyes, bar for that it was nice. The night shift man loannis was the best staff...

Me and my brother (both mid 30's) went for 5 nights all inclusive from 16th Sept to this small family run hotel in Malia. For the money we paid (£720 each) we wanted a minimum of 4 stars all inc. and despite being assured of this by lastminute.com representative, it was only when we confirmed the booking we found out...

Date of visit: 3/08/14 - 11/08/14 Group: 6 English Lads aged 25 - 35 Type: All inclusive holiday.

Nice hotel and relatively good location for the strip, but if you're a group of lads or ladies obviously looking to hit Malia hard, this is not the place...The manager is the biggest **** around...makes you pay for every little extra thing, extremely stingy with everything, especially the all inclusive so prepare to feel guilty for having the food and...

The hotel was very nice, great facilities etc. The food was also very nice, bit repetitive but so are many all inclusive hotels. The staff are hit and miss, we were in a group of 10 lads and in the same week there was a group of 12 girls staying here as well. I'm not sure if it was because...

We were a group of 5 'lads' on a 'lads' holiday. Upon arrival we had some good banter with Manos (the manager), who seemed like a nice chap, and who made it clear that it was a mixed-use place, i.e. that both families and party-goers both reside, and we should therefore be respectful. Fair enough. The long and short of...

So after reading a load of reviews my 4 mates and I were fully expecting to have a nightmare. Upon arrival Manos introduced himself and immediately made a joke about being the devil re-incarnate based on the reviews, to which we bluntly admitted to having read and shared a bit of a laugh. After chatting a bit more he knew...

Reading previous reviews everyone said the manager was awful and to never consider staying at this hotel. I dont understand what some people expect from hotels in these kinds of places?
