“Amazing week”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2013

We stayed in the Angela studios which is a sister hotel to mirage situated right next to it. It has the same pool area and bar. The pool area is great plenty sun beds. Bar us also really good they do great happy hour prices and a vodka slush you must try. The room we were in was great (room 8) had an amazing view from the balcony. Loads of room and basic cooking facilities (which we rarely used). The only downfall to room was the shower you had to hold it above your head. Maids were great they came every second day she even did our dishes bless her. You are only provided with one toilet roll so you will have to buy some. There is loads of cheap places to eat around. €2.90 for a breakfast in most places. The is a KFC and macsonalds situated near by. The hotel is in a great place it is situated right on the strip behind some of the clubs. Would advise going to bananas it's the best. The reps made the holiday (bret, Claire and billy) they were absolutely amazing there for anything you needed and were so welcoming. We booked most of the events with them and its well worth the money. Would recommend paint party and boat party they were unreal. Had such a laugh with the reps.They always had something planned. Deffo the best reps around. A lot of people were getting fined for their rooms but if you take care of it you won't have a problem. Nicco at the bar is hilarious. The beach is a 5-10 min walk and it's beautiful. €10 for subbed for the day. Met so many amazing people and made friends with a lot of people I will deffo keep in contact with. If I go back to malia there is only one place il stay. Oo a malia. See you all at the reunion :)

Had the best week ever! The pool area and bar area was perfect! The rooms were clean, tidy and just what you need! We were welcomed by 3 amazing reps! Brett, Rimmer and Billy! They made the holiday that little bit better! Playing drinking games and other activities all week! I would definitely recommend mirage studios, however the blonde women behind the reception desk is a money grabbing pest! Any little stains on your bed sheets results in a 15 euro fine which I think was totally unfair after me and 8 other friends spending thousands between us to stay there, that is my only fault! Other than that, it was the best hotel for us! Nicos behind the bar is class and will make your holiday that but better! Highly recommend!

Me and my friend stayed here 9th July for one week we are 21 and 22. We checked in easy enough you've got to pay for aircon and a safety deposit box. The rooms are basic, take your own bed sheets we did as you get charged for any marks on the sheets. You only get one toilet roll. If you run out you have to buy your own. Our fridge did not work the whole holiday!! The balcony door kept getting jammed and we had to keep asking staff to help us open it. The mirage Is right behind Malibu club. Expect no sleep if you stay here. The club 18-30 reps rip your eye balls out. Do not buy anything off them. We paid to see ChipMunk and didn't even get in the club. Because of the amount of people trying to get in the club. Food at the hotel is basic, if you like chips after chips then it's your place. It cost us €10 for two drinks at the hotel bar. Nico who works behind the bar is so funny, kept us amused all day and night with his hilarious stories. They took our passports off us when we checked in, please note they are not allowed to do this! Get them back straight away. Plenty of sunbeds in a morning, the beach is about a 20min walk its lovely. €10 for a sunbed all week. We found this hotel was full of 16-18 year olds we felt the oldest ones there. Sticky fingers the restaurant is 2mins away from the hotel it's lovely! Good food and cheap. Our transfer bus dropped us off at McDonald's and we had to walk to our hotel, and we got picked up from McDonald's going home. It's only a 10min walk from the Mirage. Once you check in you have the club 18-30 reps in your face even at stupid o'clock in the morning pressuring you to buy things! Say no! Don't feel pressured!! Waste of money, and they are too in your face! Rooms would be a little bit bigger especially the shower. Was the size of a cat litter tray. This hotel chargers you for every little things! Be careful look on the dressing table at the price list if you break or damage anything. Wouldn't really recommend this hotel or go back. Defo not work £500 per person for one week. If you want nice food go in to Stallis, few cocktail bars more laid back and relaxing. €10 in a taxi but nice walk we done both.

Do not listen to the reviews, if you go with a group of animals and wreck the place the obviously you will charged, don't piss off the staff and you will be fine.

Your in Malia so get over the fact that you will be sleeping very little if at all any. Right beside the strip which is good for getting home and heading out but bad for sleeping. Up to at least 8am everyday then by the time you try and sleep with all the door banging and loud music, they start playing music at the pool but you just have to battle through. Dominoes is right at the door and subway just across the road.

If you haven't been on a party holiday before then get ready for what seems to be amazing offers from every PR on the strip and greeted with the most water down drink you can think off. Your better having a massive pre-drink then head out about 1 or so.

Another mention about the reps, don't buy the whole package, it is such a waste of money. Only pick out certain things that you know you want to do and are up for doing. I would highly recommend the UV paint party, it was an unreal event.

One man you need to talk to is Nikkos. He makes the trip bearable when you are up to the unholy hours of the morning. Plenty of story's, you may want to ask about the cucumber story's and about the english lad of stole all the iPhones and money. So good. The rooms are basic and the shower goes everywhere but again what do you expect just enjoy the nights out.

Other advice, don't go anywhere near the rose sellers as they will have your money and phone out of your pocket in a flash. All the clubs where good, just try and bargain as much as you can to get good drink.

Have fun.

Room Tip: Accept the fact that you'd have a better time sleeping in a Chinese sweat shop

Went to malia with 2 of my friends beginning of june this year! It was amazing! We heard bad reviews about the mirage before we went but i dont know what any of them are on about! Best 18-30's hotel out there! Its bang on the strip so it was good getting to all the bars each night. The owners were really nice and a laugh! Made us feel welcome as soon as we arrived! The reps were amazing! Got along with them all as soon as we arrived, especially Jess... She's lovely! Miss them all so much! Are holiday wouldnt of been half as good without them! Food was pretty good ate there almost every night they had a good selection to choice from and the price was ok. If i ever go back to malia i will be staying at the mirage again! Dont really have anything bad to say about it really! Just take your own towels as the dont provide and make sure you buy toilet roll! BEST HOLIDAY EVER!

Room Tip: Bottom floor was better.

I have been on a few 18-30 holidays in Faliraki and Zante however Malia tops them all. When we got to our hotel we were delighted to find the location was in the middle of the strip behind all the bars and clubs! (no need for long walks or taxi's home). We were greeted by our rep for the week Brett who is an absolute legend and booked us on the Silent Disco, Paint Party, Booze Cruise and House Night all of which we would recommend! The other reps were so kind and helpful checking up on us throughout the week. Food and drinks at the hotel were of a good quality and reasonably priced compared to others in the resort. All I would say is bring your own bedsheets to avoid any fines at the end of the week! Great Holiday!

Went to mirage not really sure what to expect. The hotel rooms are completely basic and they have certain rules you have to abide by, I.e don't stain sheets etc.. to be honest though, room was completely fine for me, as I'm not a hard person to please. What makes the hotel is the staff, all lovely and friendly, Nico was hilarious and let me away with murder most nights! Total legend. The reps also were awesome, super friendly, very helpful and up for a good laugh every day. This hotel is perfect if you're just looking for a fun week in Malia, perfect location as it's bang on strip. Sticky fingers restaurant was also the dogs bollocks so would recommend it to everyone! Also the mirage has music booming all day long, and that's what gets you in the mood on your holiday. Best holiday I've been on hands down.
