Lovely family who run the hotel. great people. Did so much for the thirty six of us who were there. Gave us a great BBQ. Would well recommend anyone looking to stay in Crete. Good value and food and drink by the pool. It's definitely five stars from me.

To much noise from the street side, the tv and air condition is not in the standar, near to town you can walk there, it is clean and as long there is someone of the employees in they try to help you in what ever you need, but if you want to check in before 8:00 you have to wait...

We are a young couple from Russia, came for vacation to Malia. As for our plans we'd like to travel all around Crete thats why we were searching for a hotel to sleep and a rest. Finally staying at Ambrosia we were completely satisfied. We can add that they did even more than we expected. Nice clear and clean room,...

If you ever find yourself stranded in Malia, cause you left it to late to book any of the other mainstream clubbing destinations or you just want to push the boat out a bit, Ambrosia Hotel is a nice, well-priced establishment. It's no Hilton by any stretch of the imagination but it's pleasant, with running hot water, clean towels, decent...

Stayed 3 nights at the ambrosia. The owners were very friendly. The hotel met our needs. The position of the hotel in malia was adequate as we like walking and was near the beach. The traffic was noisy we should of asked for a room at the rear of the hotel. The old man enjoyed drinking the beer at the...

Stayed in the 4 bed apartment for a week with friends. Location is great 5mins from a nice beach and 10mins walk from the main bars. Restaurants are on the door although the centre offers better value. Is not a hotel filled with young people, there are a few but there is a nice mix. Pros - Price, cleanness, friendly...

Only stayed here for 3 nights then rented a villa in the countryside but we were back all the time at the bar for excellent cheap food and drinks, not to mention the free wifi! The owner Kostas and his wife Maria were so welcoming and friendly and was always nice to chat to them. The pool is perfect, location...

Very very friendly and nice owners!! We have rather basic room (not studio) but very good for the money paid. Pool area is clean and looks really very nice with sitting area and small bar. Location is very good! Pleasant sand beach is only 3-5 min from the hotel. Center of Malia in 10 min by walk - it is...

I stayed here in late july 2013 and initially booked in one night and ended up staying for three! The hotel is run by husband and wife Kostos and Maria whose kindness towards us was really lovely.
