DO NOT STAY HERE HOLIDAY FROM HELL 2014

We arrived at 4:30 am due to flight delays to be asked why we were late and kept the owner up she needed to sleep, they took our passports away and kept them and told us we could have them back when we left or paid 50 euros deposit in case we damaged any property( Keeping your passport is against British Law ) When we got to our room beds were unmade only 1 pillow per bed 1 sheet per bed and 3 dirty single beds with very thin matresses, In the morning we went to breakfast for a cooked breakfast to be given microwaved beans 1 rasher bacon 1 sausage 1 slice toast and coffee for 6 euros each was told food was cooked fresh.All meals we saw guests eat you could here the ping of a microwave heating food up, on Tuesday the special of the day was spaghetti bolognase which we tried again microwaved and then it was the special until we left 5 days later as no one else was eating it. The staff were very unhelpful and very confrontational if you dared to ask or complain about something. In each room was a list of fines that had to be paid if you damaged or God forbid stain with anything (lipstick makeup juice drinks or whatever) We were made to feel unwelcome at all times and the bar staff very rude, we had a Greek night and although they set up bar b cues to cook the food no one saw them used again the microwave was used, there were party games afterwards and they were just made to humiliate the guests with over the top drinks, The towels in the room were never changed for the whole week and only one toilet roll was supplied.When checking out whilst you went to collect your passports a member of staff inspected your room and if they found any thing wrong you had to pay a fine otherwise they kept your passport until you or a member of your party paid .In the brochure we read it was a family hotel that could be a little noisy but it is far from that most guests are young and they were drunk noisy and fighting every night we were there .IF YOU ARE A FAMILY DO NOT GO THERE. Also some guests let some friends stay overnight in their room and were woken early hours to be told to leave or pay a 50 euro fine for each person staying there and this was carried out by shouting so waking all the other guests. My wife and I wear very scared on many occasions as we thought fights would break out on many times AVOID AT ALL COSTS

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.
