Icandy must be the best hotel in the area, if you're looking for a chill out holiday daytime and a party night time this is the place for you. It is a 5 min walk to the main strip, but if you are looking for an early night you can't hear the music from the bars.
Everywhere is spotless, not even a piece of dust out of place. We stayed in a studio room, which we basically got what we paid for, it was small but had everything we needed and more to be honest again absolutely spotless. The Air Con was amazing.. the only thing that we found was the shower struggled to warm up.
The food was all really fresh and tasty (literally they grow their potatoes in fields around them for jacket spuds etc).. not only that they had really good prices.
That all said, the highlight of the entire hotel are the owners, Georgina is the nicest person in the entire world, she makes you feel like you have known her for 20 years and not 7 days.. she has a great relationship with all the customers and the reps.
Again a big shout out to the owners and a big thanks for them for helping us enjoy our holiday.

Room Tip: Rooms that face the pool look like they are the better ones as they look over the fields towards the...

I would 100% recommend the iCandy Apartments to anyone looking to have a party holiday in Malia. The rooms are clean, comfortable but basic. Generally the bar is open 24hrs and also serves a good selection of food, perfect for curing that hangover in the morning (or maybe afternoon).
We came as a group of three lads early in the season but George and Georgina, the owners, made us feel right at home. The hotel is just a 5min walk to some of Malia's main bars. The only little disappointment were the showers, which were often cold.
I have never met such a friendly bunch of people than I did at iCandy. A great holiday.

This was my first visit to the Fanourakis Apartments and i hope it won't be my last. It is a 2 mins walk from the Malia night life. The apartments are in a fantastic position, clean, tidy, basic though everything you need. Now for the family, they are something special. By the end of your stay, you feel like you are a member of the family more than a holiday maker. The pool is large and kept really clean. I loved it.

Room Tip: Upper floors have great views over the distant hills.

We came to icandy on the 19th of July till the 30th on a girls holiday,I couldn't recommend a better place to stay,Georgia and George the owners were one in a million!!! The nicest owners of a hotel iv ever met,it's a very well family run business.The hotel rooms got cleaned everyday by the maid,and there was a 24hour bar! As for malia I would go back any day! I had the best time of my life,didn't get much sleep but was so worth it getting in at 8oclock the next day most days then getting up to sunbathe at 12! The best club in malia is definitely cloud 9! Make sure u don't go out till around half 1 because the best bars don't open till 1ish,we usually Pre drank at our hotel after we've been to sticky fingers for our meal,then got ready and went out reoccurring for 11 nights!! The pictures dont do much justice either,its so much nicer,the only thing i could fault is the shower in put room wasnt the best,but georgia said ahe would get it fixed,so it should be ok now! highly recommend going to stay here!Have fun :p

6 girls for 11 nights at Icandy Fanourkis was incredible, never experienced something as amazing as Malia! The pictures do nothing for the hotel, it looks 100x better in person and very modern. Georgia and George (the owners) were absolutely amazing and would do anything for you at anytime with a 24 hour bar which was great! It's a 2 minute walk to the strip, malia is absolutely amazing and was definitely a holiday to remember! The pool is gorgeous, the food is very cheap and the drinks were also a good price. We went out for a meal every night, then pre drinked at the hotel bar before hitting the strip. The hotel was very clean and the staff were amazing! Everything is walking distance, cloud 9, bar b and candy club were also the best clubs. The hotel is in a perfect area, not to close to the big clubs so you are able to sleep at night. There was no trouble, very relaxing throughout the day with music playing and it's suitable for any type of people but I definitely recommend this hotel to party people. The hotel rooms were very spacious and clean, however the old women (georgias mother-in-law) is crazy and forever shouting at everyone (do not touch her flowers). We loved malia and fanourkis, we would come back anytime! Thankyou to Georgia and George, we miss you already!!!xxxx

Came here for a week in July and I am so glad I chose the fanourakis apartments its a two minute walk form the strip! The owners Georgina and george are brilliant and really helpful and there is someone at the hotel 24/7 and also they look after your room key so you dont loose it when going out! the rooms are clean but very basic but you get what you pay for.
I would highly recommend it!!!!!!
