When we arrived after the two hour coach journey, we went to reception to find it empty and no-one there to welcome us! Eventually we found the owner, who could barely speak any English and just grunted at us! When showing us...

The hotel was in the perfect location, right next to the beach and just at the bottom of the strip! It's a family owned business so the atmosphere was really warm and relaxed.

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
