Just returned from a 10 night holiday, this is our second visit and each time we visit we love it more. We always hire a 1 bed villa with a private pool & kitchen, we stayed half board so the kitchen is useful for light lunches and the use of the fridge freezer. All of the facilities at the resort...

Me and my partner come here for our honey moon. I booked the place on lost cost holidays that then went bust and I was told they hadn't paid for my hotel yet. The staff here couldn't have been more helpful they held my reservation well I chased the bank for my money back. They done everything the possibly could...

We visited this resort in October 2015 and I wrote a very positive review at the time. It's rare for us to visit the same resort twice - and we had very high expectations after the last visit - but I'm pleased to say we were not disappointed. The resort is very well run and maintained by friendly, welcoming, helpful...

This hotel is high in the hills behind Malia, so is peaceful and relaxing, but within easy reach of the centre of town, shops, restaurants and beaches. The villa's have private gardens with pools, this was perfect for us as a family with older children. There is also a main pool area, but we tended to stay at our own...

On the hills above Malia is this fine hotel located, bit of a warning for the excess road to it is an adventure, goiing up, narrow so be careful When you've arrived you will find an easygoiing hotel with large garden around the pool. Pool is not heated so April swimmers are the daredevils! Also indoors a very large gym...

Stayed mid August in a villa with private pool. Everything was fantastic, evening meal was varied and quality with brilliant service. A hire car is a must or do as we did and use the local taxi service, ask for Manos true gent will show you the best sites. Very quiet at night but you are only a 5 min...

Firstly I would like to mention that the reservation staff were fantastic! I had originally booked my holiday through Lowcost holidays which recently went into administration, and found out that my accommodation had NOT been paid by the company. On contacting the hotel, this was confirmed and they were really sympathetic and reassuring. Athina Kagiaftaki was the person who I...

Room is great but the indoor pool is not heated and also the breakfast is very bad, no variety, and not tasty at all. Must have a car to get out of the hotel. Staff is very kind. great view from the balcony

We have been 9 nights in a villa with private pool. From the first until the last day everything was perfect. We booked halfboard, thanks to the chefs who prepare the good food. We guess the portion are a bit to big, but maybe some customers like it like this. A special thanks to Katarina and Adonis, it was a...
