“Basic but all you need!”
Reviewed 19 August 2013

We stayed at the Village Oasis Area, Malia for 2 weeks from July 2nd - 16th. Group of 5 lads between 2 rooms. As with everyone we were nervous about all the reviews (massive charges, terrible security etc.) but arrived there + were massively surprised!
When we first arrived, all paid for air con + safe; came to about 45 euros per person but it is well needed. Rooms get way to hot and unbreable without it. Also the 18-30 rep was quick to come to our room to sell their trips however he really wasn't pushy at all. We paid for one trip (silent disco) which was 25 euro each and well worth it!
Hotel is only a 5-10 minute walk from the top of the strip and its located ideally. Hotels on the strip just seemed far too lively all of the time so was quite nice to be able to get back to a quieter part to go to sleep. The promo people on the strip can get really annoying but at the end of the day they're just doing their jobs. We found the best places to go on a night were Banana club, Zig Zag + Candy Club (all free entry).
Due to the majority of us having girlfriends (and one lad just failing to pull) we never had to experience the security much on a night, however we were told straight away on arrival that it was 25 euro to bring a lass back, but if we tried to sneak them in (which would be impossible due to CCTV EVERYWHERE) and got caught, it was 50 euro. Also when pre-drinking, some nights security was round asking us to turn music off by 11:00pm, however other nights would not appear and we would be un-interruped until going out at about 2:00am.
Finally, coming to the end of the holiday we were majorly worried about extra charges, due to us smashing a couple of glasses + having tattoo ink + pen ink all over some bed sheets. Some how, when we came to checking out we were not charged anything whatsoever!
From our experience, the hotel was everything we needed/expected for a lads holiday and had no trouble whatsoever!
Would definitely recommend.

Me and 4 other friends stayed here for our first holiday away from 25th June for 2weeks. We all had the most amazing time ever, the hotel staff are all very welcoming and friendly. Rooms are basic but are really clean, maid comes in every second day to clean and changes bed sheets about every 4 days. Pool area very good music playing all day with a great atmosphere! Food and drink very good and good priced. Reps were amazing, we done all the events and would highly recommend them! About a short 5 mins to the strip and shops even closer for buying food etc. would highly recommend this hotel and go back again!! :)

Room Tip: book in main hotel with pool view

Where to start, first of all we got shown to our apartment, the security guard then tried to turn on the light and the lights in the bedroom area didnt work, when he left we then discovered that the room was infested with ants everywhere. The next thing was for a 18 to 30 holiday music has to be off by 10, there is also no hot water so we had cold showers everyday. The maids dont even clean the rooms they just empty the bin. Then when half of my mates left we were charged 50 euro for keeping their bags in our room to make sure they were safe. Second week we woke up to thousands of ants on our balcony. Every day of the holiday we were told to turn the music off at 10 when its ment to be a party resort. The final day was an absoloute disgrace and shows what a dump the hotel is. When leaving we were told we were getting charged for a broken balcony chair that wasnt even meant to be there in the first place. There was four chairs for the four people in the room and then an extra broken chair which didnt match the rest and sat broken in the corner of the balcony. We were then made to pay 40 euro for the chair(which costs 6 euro out the local shop) or we werent getting our passports back. The chair didnt even belong to the hotel but still made us pay for it. The prices they charge for damages is outrageous and this is honestly the worst hotel I have stayed in. The place is a complete disgrace and I wouldnt recommend this hotel to anyone as all the bad reviews are correct.

Stayed here with a group of 6 of us from the 19th-26th July, and some of us were worried from other bad reviews, but it was honestly the most amazing week of our lives! The hotel was basic, but clean and we had everything we needed. Staff are like one big family and you begin to feel like part of it so quickly! Pool area is lovely, bar open 24/7 and music played nearly all the time, so there's always a good atmosphere. Need to pay for air con per room which is 80euros + 30 for a safe, but buy them together and its 80, recommend not to keep air con on during the night because we all came home ill and with sore throats :( The PRs on the strip (which is a short walk from the hotel) can get annoying, but they are all really friendly, so be nice to them and they'll be nice to you - plus they get you cheap deals that get you f***ed sooo quickly. We bought some of the events from the reps - they do sell them to you as you arrive but they're not really pushy and let us go out when we wanted to! everyone is so welcoming and as long as you don't expect 5 star luxury you'll be absolutely fine :) security guards are nice guys, so just respect them and they'll be cool with you..they rotate around the different blocks of rooms but it does cost 25euros to bring someone home with you! Will be definitely coming back to Malia, and especially back to this hotel, we didn't want to leave!

Stayed here with 3 other lads from June 25th till July 3rd.
I read the bad reviews and was gutted thinking i paid for a rubbish hotel. We also read about these crazy fines, but honestly they dont take the mick, if you break something you will get charged so just dont break anything and your fine (we took pics of everything just encase).
Staff are awesome, awesome tunes blasting out all day at the main hotel as well. We all had a great time, strip is 5 mins walk away. Would recommend to anyone!

Already planning on going back this year :)

came here with 2 of my mates, had a sick time! we was worried about getting charged as we read all the reviews on here & because 1 girl urinated on my mates bed haha but everything was cool & we didnt get charged. Security guard is safe! good banter but if you bring a bird/boy back to your room you'll have to go in stealth mode (thats if your in the studios) we was in the AREA part of the hotel and we didnt need to sneak anyone in, only 1 time my mate got charged £25 as he had no key so he had to put himself in the hole. Hotel bar is a good place to meet people before going out on the strip, we met so many great people man, seriously good times! they have games on there a couple of nights before hitting the strip with the reps. The reps, we didnt buy the trips off them but in the end we HAD TO, because we met so many mates & all of them were doing the rep trip, night things so we had to geg on. SO i'll say go for it, it's not all bad but f it. We got a I Love House night (MENTAL), Skepta Gig (went off, met him & raved with him afterwards in bar one), White Party (crap) & Boat Party for €85 which all our holiday mates paid €100 - 200 4 lol dumb but they got a paint party & spring break with it. Hotel bar is pretty expensive but it's alright i suppose, we only went there to talk to the birds before going out so you can break the ice, so it's pretty good strategy i suppose. strip is 2 minutes away, really close but the beach is like 20 mins away but adding PR's hassling you every minute make that 30 minutes lol,I brought €600 & that got me through a week.

Room Tip: Book in January - march

A very clean hotel with very friendly staff have loved my stay here and would recomend to anyone.
Food is also very good and the breakfast especially the bacon is really nice.

The reps are really fun to be around and the trips are worth the money especially the paint party.
