A lovely hotel, in a scenic location with a view of the mountains. The rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. The hotel staff were very friendly and approachable, very nice people who know their guests on first name basis. It is a nice retreat and is within 10 minute walking distance to the nice beach. This hotel is away from the toy town of Malia, which is full 16-19 year old party goers on quad bikes. The one thing that let this hotel down was again these exceptionally loud young ones, who were resident and took to shouting every night between 3am-5am.

I personally did not enjoy the Malia area as it was too touristy and lots of heavy partying area.
However, I would definitely recommend this hotel as it was one of the best in the Malia area if you are staying there.

It was just a beginning of the season when we arrived so it was still quiet. But everything was prepared: pool, bar, music. The hotel is a little bit far away from the sea but since we enjoy walking 20-30mins weren't too much for us. I am really happy with the hotel, would definetely recomend it for everyone!
Crete’s top party resort, Malia lies 37 kilometres from Heraklion. Developed in the 1980s, it is popular with a young British crowd, its main draw the neon-lit strip of late-night discos, English-style pubs, and fast food kiosks. Hotels and apartments overlook the two-kilometre-long sand beach, offering water sports and bungee jumping. The Star Beach water park in Chersonissos is also nearby. Daily excursion boats run to Ayios Nikolaos.
