We arrived at this hotel at 6 am after a delayed flight. There were no reception staff and the keys were left in the door. Another couple with children prefered our room to theirs and moved in leaving us in another room. A poor start.
The rooms are basic but clean. The beds firm but not uncomfortable. The bathroom was ok but the shower was small and difficult to use without flooding the floor. Plenty of hot water though. The appartments were very poorly equiped. No coffee makers, bread knives, wine glasses,soap, shampoo tea towels etc. Just a two ring hob , kettle , fridge and very limited crockery.
The bar and pool area were clean and well maintained, the bar staff were friendly and there were plenty of sunbeds.
Malia in early April is closed. The waterfront is dead and looks like a cross between the tackiest pars of Blackpool and a buiding site. Area aroun the church is better but nowhere as nice as Chania or Agios Nicolias(Sp?).
The whole Thomas Cook experiecn is tiring the flights re at times to give maximum sleep deprivation and leve you tackling the M60 or M25 at the worst times of day.
The holiday though was on offer at a very low price so not bad value for money
