Very friendly owners and staff! Room was nice and set back from the noise of the strip so could sleep easily at night! Location was spot on, bar next door... and the beach was no more than a few steps away! Can only think of positives - no negatives!

The hotel has a large bar next door (Oscars) which was great for pre drinking and meeting others in the hotel. Its very social mainly groups of ages 18-25 staying. Located at the...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Iris beach is a family-run hotel located on the main beach road of Malia where all the bars and clubs are, but not so close to be disturbed by the music and the noise and 50 mtrs from the main lovely sandy beach of Malia. There is a nice swimming pool surrounded by lovely gardens and a nice and cozy bar with swinging chairs around it. Next door is Oscars bar, open all day and all night serving nice food and lovely cocktails at night! Rooms are nice with air-con, safe box, kitchen and nice balconies. In the night it's safe with security guard looking after the place. I would recommend it for couples who want a peaceful holiday by the beach or people who want to enjoy Malia's nightlife! ... more   less
