Avoid if you have children. It's ok for 18-30 age group but needs a re vamp. The hotel is located at the opposite end to the beach, I would reccomend hiring a quad to get you there as its a good 12 min walk to the beach.

This hotel is brilliant. Its perfect for people trying to get away for a lads holiday! You have to pay extra for air con/fans/fridge/safety box but to be honest you can expect that anywhere stay in Malia. The only thing you need is air-conditioning which is €50 per room. The prices for damages are expensive but at the end of the day if you damage something its your own fault! This hotel is quality and definitely worth staying in. its €40 to bring someone back to your room but you can avoid this and any next day awkwardness by using sun loungers down at the beach like everybody else!

Don't buy the rep package offered by Thomas Cook. They offer free entry to all the clubs, which already enjoy free entry so its just a massive rip off! Thats no reflection on the hotel though!

Room tip: Ask for a pool side room or one away from the road to avoid loud noises from the quad bikes!

Just come back from a trip to Malia with my best friend - it wasn't quite the hardcore party week most people went for, but it was a bloody good holiday!
When we pulled up to Malia Holidays our mouths dropped - we didn't realise we were right at the top of the strip and were disappointed - HOWEVER, do not let this put you off! During the day it's only as noisy as the pool is busy (which it wasn't, when we were there) and at night it can be noisy, but I'm sure most of you will cope or will be partying hard anyway!
The hotel is very traditional in decor - greek tiling and dark wood everywhere. It may not be to your taste but it's certainly very clean. Our beds were reasonably comfortable and there was plenty of storage - I'd advise asking for a balcony room as the terrace rooms are a tad too easily accessible from the pool!
The bar of the hotel (run by Eve) has all the cheap and cheerful day time snacks you need, with drinks a plenty! The pool is also very clean with plenty of sunbeds, although I'm sure it could get busier in peak season!!
The only complaint really is the breakfast - we didn't eat it most days due to oversleeping, and when we did it was very very basic and not all that appetising - go without and buy cereal in from the spar instead (literally opposite the hotel).
While you're there be sure to speak to your rep about escaping malia for a day - not just on the booze cruises and pub crawls, but to the local waterpark or maybe further-a-field - they have plenty to offer, but the reps at the hotel aren't that forthcoming with mentioning any of them!
All in all, Malia Holidays hotel is cheap and cheerful, but very much worth the price. Stay on the right side of Maria (the main lady!) and co and you'll have a great time, whether you're engrossed in a book by the pool, or necking as many shots as humanly possible!!!

Room tip: Balcony!!! All will be noisy to a certain degree, but you won't have wanderers if you're off the ground floor!

From reading the reviewa AFTER booking the hotel me and my firend were very sceptical... but we really couldnt have wished for a better pace to stay, we were weary about it being 2 star as well but the maids came every day!!! It was a wonderful place, family run and they are so friendly. Couldnt do enough for you. Yeah some people were realy told off and threated to be kicked out but wouldnt you if someone threatened your grandma in a drunken state!!! the family are lovely and me and my friend ar going bakck again this year, only under the condition we can get that hotel again!!! Location was excellent and the pool was fab. Staff really couldnt do enough to help!!!!! Uw ar MAILIA!!!!!!!! xx

Room tip: Have a pool view, was lovely, could see right down the strip!

Stayed here with my boyfriend for 1 week in august 2010. LOVED IT!!
Location is brilliant, right opposite a spar shop for easy access to nibbles, drinks etc. Located at the top of the strip which is great as you start off the night with food from food places close by then have a few drinks in pubs then onto the clubs at the bottom of the strip! Max 15 min walk to the bottom of the strip to the beach! Great!
Pool is great! Good size, always has the sun shining and pool bar offers good snacks, toasties, pizzas, burgers etc. drinks not badly priced either. Pool bar staff very friendly and helpful, full use of pool toilets and showers which was handy, especially on last day when you have a late flight back but don't have access to your room.
Room was basic and small but just what you'd expect in Greece. Room was clean and tidy, and cleaners cleaned room every day. Air con was extra charge but well worth the money. Terrace was small but enough room for two people, and you can't hear the hussle and bussle of the strip on the terrace or in your room which is great for a good nights sleep. Decorated basic styles but deffinately nothing wrong it.
We stayed B&B basis, breakfast was ok but only had this a few mornings as we preferred to get a full English for a few euro at local pubs/bars rather than have the continental offered by the complex.
I would deffinately recommend Malia holidays to people and would certainly go back and stay here again! Everything's on your doorstep but the noise won't keep you awake all night and the place is safe, clean and tidy and has 24hour security! Enjoy!!!
