My wife and I found the Drossia Palms quite by accident several years ago. We have been going to Malia for the best part of twenty years, when 4 years ago our regular hotel let us down so we opted for the Drossia Palms thinking it was the one on the corner. When the transfer bus drove past the hotel we expected to be dropped off at my heart sank. We stopped 100m further down the road got off and followed the tour rep filled with trepidation. At the end of a short alley way was a beautifully layed out hotel with pool area and reception.
We fell in love with it straight away, this was before we found out that the rooms were clean comfortable and with optional A/C. The manager Manos and his lovely wife Froso go out of their way to ensure you stay is as good as can be, and Antonio the bar man is an absalute legend. His bar manner is second to none and if you are sat on your own he will ensure that doesn`t last long. Try his speciality cocktail "dogs bollocks" it`s GERT LUSH.
We have stayed three times now and already booked for 2012. Overall an excellent hotel located 200m from the beach well run and very friendly. And if you get the chance try the hotel BBQ and quiz night.
