Great hotel, lots of unique common spaces, good design and food. The only thing is that it’s in the middle of nowhere, so it’s good to have a car.

6/10 Good

Overall good hotel but not 5 star level. Room: a/c not working so they kindly offered another one. Pool: not good if you don’t have kids, too busy and loud. Suggest adults only hotel if solo. Other pool is just for private use of certain rooms. Website shows a better hotel pool. Beach: fantastic area, only con is need to wake up early to reserve a sunbed, else they taken from early on. Restaurant: Cretan one amazing, Italian one very disappointing ( it worth it) Gym: ok only via booking and max 4 people. Get fully booked quickly and people don’t show up. Location: only ok if you want to stay at the resort 24/7. Else, suggest choosing a different one. Too far from Heraklion which is not as nice as Chania. Malia is not the best area.

Great stay for Malia, Crete
Great hotel with all the amenities. The ping pong table is a hit. Rooms showing its age. Food in the a la cart restaurant is good. Buffet restaurant food has lots of variety, but after a week of the exact same selection for breakfast, it get tired.

8/10 Very Good

A great hotel for families with an extremely friendly staff. Everything was amazing in the hotel except for the air conditioning in the rooms. The temperature is set at 23 degree Celsius and can’t be lowered. For those who are used to chilly temperatures to be able to sleep, you will have some trouble to sleep during the warm nights.

A home away from home
Amazing hotel. Everything from the check in process with a delicious welcome drink, to a beautiful landscaped garden design and pristine beach makes this hotel stand out. You feel like you are a part of a community: everyone is very friendly and eager to make you feel at home. It’s a perfect place to escape from the outside word and engage in meditation, yoga or just chill on the beach sipping a nice cocktail crafter by Dimitris and his boys at the Beach shack. Both a la carte restaurants are outstanding. I recommend booking a garden view bungalow for the most private and secluded experience. They are a member of Design Hotels, so you will want to take some clues on how to decorate your house ;) One thing I’d say they can improve: please stop charging for water at the hotel. Some guests may feel annoyed having to pay for it given the room rates.
