My boyfriend and I paid a cheap price for a room here back in July. It was basic, but clean. Short walk away from the old town, which was beautiful and a 15 minute walk down to the sea front. Very noisy throughout the night (think Jeremy Kyle, with bells on). Hoteliers were friendly - had a lot on their plate with rude and aggressive holiday makers, who they tried to keep calm and quiet. Not a peaceful getaway, but being near the Malia strip it's what you expect.

Me and my cousin came here at the end of September. Staff were all friendly, rooms were clean. Only thing that was not so good was we never got clean towels. But we just hand washed ours. As it is a self catering hotel. Food is good in the hotel, drinks are good. Its about a 5 min 10 min walk to the strip. Its a good family run business. When we were there people that were staying in the hotel say they always come back to this hotel. Me and my cousin has just booked to go again and stay in this hotel for the end of August as when we came it was end of season and we are looking forward to go back to stay here and see everyone again. Lovely hotel, lovely people and close to everything and get what you pay for. Don't let other reviews put you off.

I no Greece rather well and understand their laid back approach. Me and my partner booked a last minute cheap holiday and that's what we got.. I had visions of the inbertweeners movie in my head when they pulled up to the hotel. The room was clean and basic it wasn't up to a high standard but it was clean which was the main thing. The food and drinks were rather expensive and they would have got more money out of us if they were cheaper. We had to get out the rooms for 11 or they were going to charge us €15 to stay in the room which I didn't understand when we were the last guests of the season. It didn't bother us much as our transfer was 3ish but there were other guests that had to get out and hang around till later that night. The family were typical Greek and very helpful in giving us ideas on what to do as a lot of places were closed with the time of year we went. However if you are a party bunch of friends who need a basic room with a bed to stay in at the end of the night it's perfect but no "sleepovers" with anyone you bring back as you will get charged if they catch you... Take in account wifi, air-con and safety deposit boxes do have a extra charge.

Arrived in the room to find ants and flies which was disgusting. We had a broken mirror in our room so we had to use our phones to check ourselves out. For the whole duration of the holiday the "maids" only came into our rooms once, which they only came in to throw the garbage away. I heard from other guest in the hotel that the maids stole some of there money so WATCH OUT! You will have to pay for wifi, aircon and safety box. My wifi in the hotel never went past two bars and it was so so slow. The aircon was well needed but thought its very expensive. You will need to have a safety box and put all your valuables there because the staff are all dodgy. They are very hostile and you will only get respected if you spend loads of money in the hotel. The food and drinks was very high priced, would recommend to the restaurant across the road. What ever you do DONT get involved with the BBQ, its 25 euros and the BBQ was awful. YOU CANT GET A REFUND! The staff are very rude and all they cared was making money from us. They will do anything they can to fine you so be careful! At the end of the week we were fined a total of 100 euros which was DISGUSTING! We didn't really have any other choice but to give the money. Honestly, we should had only been fined for the blood in the sheets which wasn't our fault ;). The only good thing about the hotel is the location, its about 15 minute walk to the strip and it was surrounded with shops. I would not recommend this hotel as the staff were too rude and the hotel was very disgusting. Staying at this hotel ruin my holiday, Malia is an amazing place for a group holiday with your friends.
Malia enjoys a typically beautiful Mediterranean climate with long, hot summers and mild winters. June to September are the most popular times to go on Crete holidays because of the ideal sunny weather; at their peak temperatures can reach 40° Celsius, which is perfect for working on your tan!
Spring is fresh and lovely, with colourful bursts of wild flowers scattered across the countryside while autumn is pleasantly peaceful. In the winter the weather in Crete can be wet and sometimes cooler with occasional rain showers.
