7.1 Good
Pros: The layout, gardens and onsite facilities at the resort are great (and very clean). Although it was fully booked, we never had the sense that it was overcrowded. We had dinner one evening at the Sunset restaurant which was lovely and we would recommend. We left feeling more rested than when we arrived, which is mission accomplished!
Cons: Ikaros Beach Resort is marketed as a 5 star hotel and whilst it is lovely, there are little things that fall short of a 5 star experience. A couple of examples; not replenishing the toiletries when they'd run out, the mattress was quite thin and not particularly comfortable and despite being a recently renovated room, it was starting to show signs and wear and tear, so we didn't get the sense that they are maintaining the fixtures and furnishings. As a couple, we were 'upgraded' a family room which turned out to have more space but was far outdated compared with the photos shown on the website. We asked to be moved to a bungalow, per our booking and reception very kindly moved us. I don't want to be unfair to the hotel, because overall we had a lovely stay, but it fell short of the 5 star experience it's marketed as.
5.8 Okay
Cons: Value for money is off. We paid for a a five star luxury hotel, but it felt like a regular packaged deal hotel for the masses. No service on the beach, card tickets required for beach towels, etc.
7.5 Good
Pros: The food was really good , the location is very nice
Cons: The photos on booking is not matching the reality , the staff in the reception were not nice and not eager to help
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Nice view from the junior suite on the cliff, private beach, wonderful breakfast for suite guests, nice establishment in general, you are brought to your room by a golf kart so you will not need to carry your luggage. nice spa, spacious kids room, several restaurants.
Cons: reception staff could improve their attitude, super loud music at night, private pool was too cold, it never faces the sun. no sign of "private area" next to junior suites so you get random guests wandering around your private pool.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Hotel is based over a big territory and looks very well designed - it feels like it’s own little village / town. It was interesting to walk around the streets between bungalows and explore little cute places. Beautiful gardens , our room was good size and quite comfortable. Although we visited Ikarou Beach hotel in the end of the season (stayed there 2 weeks ago for 1 week), there were still good amount of restaurants and bars open and staff maintained high standards of service throughout - it definitely felt like we stayed at 5 star hotel. We have arrived quite late for our check in due to delayed flights, but hotel staff welcomed us with drinks and offered complementary cold snacks bar, which we found very thoughtful and nice . Out of dinner options (we decided to try few different restaurants during our stay) we would definitely recommend Veranda - fantastic dining experience and amazing food ! Would recommend to try their lobster risotto. Must also mention great service and beautiful design . Overall, we have really enjoyed our stay and it was good value for money - will recommend.
Cons: Clown by the kids / bar poop seemed a little creepy :D Also, would prefer to have bungalow with a bath, but we got one with the shower, may be should have specified and contact the hotel before we moved in.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Good facilities. Areas for kids and also for adults only.
Cons: Poor food options for vegans.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Very laid back. Once you are in, you feel you are home. No one actually bothers you and very helpful if you ask them.
Cons: The house cleaning rooms were right next to mine. They were making noises every morning and disturbed my sleep. But, they did a very good job of cleaning and no complaints.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Staff very friendly, polite and nice specially María from the main restaurant, Marzena from the bar, and Erika and Leonil from the Lefko restaurant! Bangaloo with sea view was just perfect located, where I could see the sun rise and set, and few steps from the relaxing pool for adults only (that was calm and really relaxing)! Room was very clean and nice decorated! Breakfast was very good and also the food in the main restaurant and Lefko Restaurant, where I had 3 times dinner because I loved the food!
Cons: Nothing!

Very helpful with all inquiries Very quiet and relaxing but short walk into town to where the action is. Close enough to shopping and nightlife. Great and reasonably priced food at the snackbar. Well worth the upgrade to a larger room on the 3rd floor.
Cons: Everything was just great

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Breakfast was exceptional Pyrgos omelette was excellent along with the fresh squeezed orange juice. The staff is super helpful full of suggestions for dinners and excursions
Cons: The town of Malia is a little too party town. Not a lot of charm it’s there but hard to find.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The room: just the right size with all necessary equipment, thorough cleaning every day was appreciated considering the sand (Though maybe there is no need to change bed sheets and towels everyday, there could be a card system saying please change or don't change the towels). Great swimming pool, lots of deckchairs, nice garden, right on the beach, far enough from the other hotels but close enough to many restaurants and city center. The owners were really helpful.
Cons: The plastic straws with the great fresh orange juice ;)

Cons: Nothing
10.0 Excellent
Pros: If you come in the high season you find the Hotel 10min walk from center of Malia away. Far enough to have your peace and close enough to be quick in the Party Area if you like. I came at the very end of the season and everything was closed in the area between the main road and the beach what did not disturbed me at all. Toula and her husband Manos are very very friendly, welcoming and help you with everything. They offer some breakfast options and I choose the 6€ breakfast with scrumbled eggs, which was perfect for me. I ordered a fresh orange juice additional. A couple at the neighbour table had the Joghurt/fresh fruits breakfast, which looked amazing. The room was really nice. Toula and Manos gave me a free upgrade, because the hotel was not fully booked. Lucky me

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Although we were only staying in this accommodation for 3 nights of our trip we couldn’t have been made to feel more welcome.

Pros: The holidays spent herel were wonderful, the hotel, the location, the sea, the room, the room view, the meal in the beach bar - all was just great. Everything and every detail is clean and neat. The sea is crystal blue and shallow that makes it ideal for the kids. Special thanks to Loula and the team, who do all their best to make the stay in the hotel very cosy and comfortable.
Cons: I wish there were some hugs for towels in the bathroom and more shelves and drawers to keep clothes and other personal things in the room. But all that things have not spoiled the impressions of the holidays at all, just the details that could be improved

Featured amenities include express check-in, express check-out, and dry cleaning/laundry services.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: I had such a fab mini break at villa monte, 3 nights in a beautiful, clean, quiet and comfy room, with beautiful views of the sea. Facilities on offer were fantastic. I loved the very deep and warm pool. There was more than enough sunbeds around the pool with extras available within the gardens. Gardens that are kept to a high standard full of blooming flowers and freshly mowed grass. The breakfast spread was top quality, offering a full continental breakfast with a option to have a english breakfast upon request. provided with sachets of tea & coffee each day for free in the room along with a full clean. The hotel itself is run by a very attentive team who without hesitation would do anything to make your stay as peaceful and enjoyable as possible. Villa monte is far enough away that you dont feel that you are in the party town of malia, about a 15 minute brisk walk into centre of town. I feel so refreshed and relaxed after visiting I will certainly be back. I reccomend this hotel to single parties and families with young to adolescent children.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The customer service was fabulous... the staff and managers SO accommodating
Cons: The wasps around the pool kept us away during the day
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Very friendly staff, genuinely interested, very clean overall (eg nice smelling public toilet at pool area!) all was done with love, eg there were playthings for the kids at the pool and suncream, just that little bit extra, coffee and tea facilities Loved the minigolf, wifi worked very well
Cons: Nothing
7.5 Good
Cons: 40- 50 walk min far from the beach. Unless, people who really adore walking , a bike/car/moto are a must
10.0 Excellent

10.0 Excellent
Pros: The mini golf was an unexpected surprise and the kids loved it! The location was convenient for exploring many places.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: It was clean, beautiful garden and nice pool area. Located 10 minute walk from Malia old town. Staff was awesome! Extra credit for the good coffee!
Cons: Ants in the room. The breakfast was simple.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Thoughtful - that’s a word to describe this nice hotel. It was an impression that the managers tried to predict all wishes of their guests. There is an international team: General manager Koula who is a Greek (originally from Cyprus), a fantastic chef Olga (originally from Kiev, Ukraine), a wonderful cleaner Rosa (originally from Tbilisi,Georgia) and a barman Amanda who is English. Mare Monte means sea and mountains. It was built in mountains with sea view. So it would be better to have a car to get a beech because there is about 20 min walk. As alternative to sea there is a very nice swimming pool just near bar&restaurant area. I had a nice time in Mare Monte and hope to return there again and again!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Very calm and beautiful place, though Malia is very close, in 1km. Fresh air, picturesque view. Room is so light and cozy. We did yoga on the grass in front of our room, waching the sea, it was such a pleasure. Thank you!
Cretan Malia Park - Mália - Building
10
9.1 Excellent (928 reviews)
Overview Reviews
The Cretan Malia Park is a distinguished hotel situated in a peaceful location on the north coast of Crete. The activities and nightlife in Malia as well as the archeological site with the famous Minoan Palace are in walking distance. One of the unique characteristics of this hotel is its river pool-complete with an artificial beach meandering amongst the garden bungalows. Mature palm trees, laws and colorful gardens adjoin a sandy beach, surround the main building and bungalows. The Cretan Malia Park has plenty to offer for families, couples, or single travelers and its central location on the island makes it an ideal starting point for those wishing to explore the island.From the moment you encounter the 35 palm trees that frame the entrance to Cretan Malia Park, you know that youve entered one of the romantic hideaways in Greece. The style is refined, the pace casual: Wrap yourself in cool cottons and the finest linens, lose yourself in the award-winning gardens, and enjoy the exceptional cuisine. Discreet service, luxurious accommodation, two placid private beaches, and spectacular scenery conspire to create an unforgettable holiday.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Has everything you need for a relaxing holiday with the family. Good and plentiful food, friendly staff, and nice facilities.
Cons: Mealtime was a little hectic, with dozens of people trying to get space in the buffet line. Lots of kids means there’s not a lot of quiet space or time. Nightly entertainment seems like a perk until you want to go to sleep early, and someone is still singing “Take me home, country roads” in a Greek accent at 10 PM.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: It is a beautifully decorated hotel in an amazingly nice garden at the sea. Just to walk through the property gives you a great vacations feeling. The staff is very kind, helpful, cheerful. The food is very good as well. My favorite: the Cretan corner :-). We will be definitely back again! Thank you for making our stay so great!
9.6 Excellent
Pros: the design is stunning, especially for the price category. if you like your hotel to be visually pleasing, this one ticks all the boxes. we enjoyed the beach restaurant (incredible pizza!), the kids club and the lovely cooking class at mouries.
Cons: the pillows were hard making it difficult to sleep comfortably (would bring my own next time) and our aircon went on and off which was annoying at night. the coffee at breakfast really needs to be better, it tasted cheap and awful and definitely ruined the overall picture for me. we booked half board which means buffet food mornings and evenings. luckily you can also eat at the 2 a la carte restaurants (at a discounted rate) which i recommend over the buffet option. next time id book breakfast only and just eat à la carte or in town. the wines and coffee are way overpriced.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Extremely friendly staff, very beautiful garden and carefully groomed area. Newly renovated rooms, good food - very good price ratio at 120 Euro half pension per night for 2 adults!
Cons: Malia itself is not a very attractive place but the surroundings are and beautiful Agios Nikolaos is only a short ride away. We would not come here in the summer weeks as it will probably be too "dense" and noisy but the April/May period was just perfect!
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Very clean and spacious
Cons: I liked it all

The room was immaculately clean. The bed was very comfortable. The greeting was warm and nothing was too much trouble. The setting was outstanding it felt like a home from home. I would have no hesitation to recommend this hotel to anyone travelling to Malia.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We had a lst floor junior suite with a balcony on the front and one on the side, both with sea views. The bedroom had a comfy king sized bed and air con. The staff were very friendly and the poolside bar served meals and drinks at very reasonable prices, the bar stayed open till midnight. Bars, restaurants and small supermarket within 5 mins walk. Malia is well known as a lively resort with many clubs for the young ones on the strip, we were there first week in October and they were all closed. Restaurant owners and staff were very welcoming, always remembered you and would come out onto the street to give you a hug. Would definitely come back to both the Parthenis and Malia.
Cons: The pictures on your website were deceiving and the apartment wasn't like what we were expecting. The kitchen area consisted of a sink, fridge and 2 ring camping stove, the living area had a dressing table and 2 single beds but no seating and was cramped, (definitely not suitable for 4 people). Saying this, I soon put my disappointment to one side and made the most of it.
10.0 Excellent

Pros: Very good value for money, the hotel is in the heart of the resort, great location, with a lot of restaurants nearby. The hotel staff was very nice and friendly, the room had a lovely view of the pool and it was very clean. We had the breakfast and it was delicious, many different options and nice setting with the restaurant near the pool and surrounded by palm trees.
Cons: If I were to suggest improvement on something, it would be for the bathroom, compared to the room it looks a bit old. However I would not even consider this an inconvenient.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Very good service, friendly staff and amazing food!
6.0 Good
Pros: Reasonable space, perfectly pleasant hotel. Reasonable proximity to the Palace of Malia, which was the main reason for our one night stay.
Cons: The location - it was very much in the heart of a very British tourist area. We go on holiday to experience the local culture, but everything in the immediate vicinity of the hotel was very geared to British tourists - Red Lion and Molly Malone's across the road, Saltire Lounge a little further away. Old town was around 1km away and had restaurants more to our taste.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: It was very clean, the staff was friendly and the hotel is really close to the beach. The beach is great and also the sea was cristal clear. The hotel has a nice swimming pool where you can enjoy a glass of wine. We borrowed an umbrella for the beach from the hotel and also, there were plenty of other things you could use.
Cons: The bathroom didn’t have a draining system; after we used the shower, the floor got really wet.
10.0 Excellent

6.7 Good
Pros: A spacious apartment in a quiet part of Malia.
Cons: Well, where to start ... while booking this hotel expectations were high due to other reviews and lovely pics. We arrived in the evening and met the host at the pool bar with noisy music. Luckily the music wasn't heard in the room, though the host responded bit arrogant while when we shared our concern that the music may be bit too loud. Not the best start of the stay. The room ... the hotel looks very nice, one could say luxurious from the outside, but what a surprise once you enter the room. There is a spacious room with kitchenette, table with chairs and two beds. The table was rather small for 4 persons and felt IKEA like (nothing against IKEA, but not matching the price level / expectation), the kitchenette and the silver/cooking-ware felt shabby, just a few (too little) sockets to charge all the electronic toys yourself and kids carry along these days. Another surprise was caused by the A/C unit, it was bit noisy inside, but no issue, but the trouble at the room 210 was mainly caused by the external unit that was producing a low frequency humm preventing your sleep being perfect as you expect it while on vacation. The bathroom was not too bad, bit dark and the shower corner missed the curtain (designed curtain-less) with sloping floor to sink the water - unfortunately after taking a shower the whole bathroom was wet. Once we left the towels on the floor expecting the staff provide clean ones, what a surprise to come back and find the dirty towels laying on the floor, we were explained that they are changing towels every other day (in a hotel - seriously?) and were given clean ones. Still, should you find towels on the floor will you not change these anyway? The breakfast was kind of ok, but please note that they are serving until 10:30, so hurry up!

8.8 Excellent
Pros: You couldn't fault it for the money. We used it as a one night stop between Chania and Elounda. It was clean, spacious and all set up ready for us. We love old town Malia, so a perfect find for a cheap holiday imbedded in the old town. Thank you!

9.6 Excellent
Pros: Property was lovely. Very impressed and hosts were fantastic. Friendly. No request too much trouble. Organised weekly party for guests and made sure you felt welcome.
Cons: No toaster or microwave in apartment
9.6 Excellent
Pros: I booked Kings Village but was staying in fact in Sarpidon Apartments that belongs to the same complex. On our 3-week journey on Crete and Peloponnese this was of top quality (at the end of September). The spacious apartment was new and spotlessly clean and modern with a large common area towards the pool area. The beds were most comfortable that I have ever had in Greece! The staff was really friendly and the area clean and well-kept. The pool was good though not particularly large and the area behind it had short comfortable grass with sunbeds and umbrellas on it. Location is in Malia old town with just small traffic around on narrow streets. Short walk to city center and ca. 1.5 km to the sandy beach.
Cons: We came by car and there are just few parking spaces nearby. The streets are narrow and there are cars parked on the edges. Take a small car if you drive here and be careful - we scratched our rental car in a tight street corner! (Fortunately we had an excess insurance).

Pros: Hosts are open-minded with a big heart and service at top-level. The rooms are lovely decorated so you feel welcome from the first moment on. Air Condition is possible but will be charged extra. The rooms are cleaned every two days, new towels included, new linen every 4 days. They are absolute clean. The house is close to the city just a 20-min walk away and close to the beach at about 400 m or just 5 min by bike. The rooms on the back of the building have a small paradise (i love to call it so) which is sun-protected by sun-shade and net. You have a table, chairs, a hammock and a bunch of different flowers and cool wind. In the front there is small pool good to cool down or a hot tub/jacuzzi which is free to use by date arrangement with the owners. The Breakfast is great and tasty, you choose 7 items out of 15 and Iliana will server it to the room. The Owners are superhelpful with tips for restaurants, sightseeings or where to shop. Iliana and Ioannis are the key to a relaxed holiday with an absolute low-level-stress-strategy called: a smile a keeps all sorrows away! We love to return next year cause there a lot of things to see. Viva Crete
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Olympus studios are perfectly located, only few min walk to the beautiful sand beach, 15 min walk to the town centre. The clubs are near, if you are interested for that kind of vacation but you can't hear the music in you studio and that is great :). Hosts are superwarm and allways ready to help.
