this hotel is really good. went with eight other girls july 2008 and had a great time. the rooms are very nice: clean and with everything you need: beds, dresser, wardrobe, chairs, bedside tables, balcony, ensuite; a maid visited every other day or so. only bad thing was that it was bed and breakfast so we didnt have a fridge to keep water cold, but they sell it at the poolside bar for cheap, along with nice food which is also relatively cheap. we only got up for breakfast once and it was nooot worth it, but it didn't matter as we would always just eat some food likes chips or club sandwiches from the bar and then go out for dinner, wanted to concentrate on drinking rather than eating!

really close to the strip where there are brilliant clubs (coyotes!) and good restaurants too (went to sticky fingers nearly every night lol). there is also a supermarket so you can get alcohol for pre drinking and also snacks. yet it is not too close that you are disturbed by the noise. the beach is like a 15 minute walk away so not too bad if you really like the beach, but we only went once; the pool was good enough. there were always sun loungers free and lilos and inflatables to play with. the pool isnt massive but it was never too crowded.

the staff are friendly, except for the security guard who was a grump and one time came all the way up to our second floor room to tell us to shut up even though it was the room below us making all the noise, and he threatened to kick us out but i don't think he meant it. anyway, it wasnt a big deal, he's just grumpy, the other staff are great.

we got make up and fake tan etc on a couple of towels and pillow cases which we were worried they were going to charge us for but they didn't. there are safety deposit boxes available for a small charge (worth it) and you have to pay for air conditioning which was worth it in my opinion, though two of my friends didnt get it for their room and they said they were fine without it.

can't recommend this place enough! i had such a good holiday here.

What a holiday!! Loved every minute of it and didn't wanna come home! Marios, Koula and Kat are the best staff in the world. George is a legend lol! Malia is the place to be for summer 2006 and the Malia Dedalos is the place to stay! Check out club UK and help bar. Get down to Malibu beach to get the best tan ever and get on them Jet Ski's cuz there wicked! Miss that place so much and not even been back home a week yet lol! Defo my holiday place for next year!

Top Local Tips for Crete

Bus service Taking the bus to explore Crete is easy. The bus stop is just to the west of the church on the main road in Malia. The buses are frequent and economical and travel to all areas of Crete.

Avoid Thalios Travel for your trips! dont use them. the woman in the office was awful when we missed our trip to Water City due to the bus driving straight past us. we asked in another travel shop (Charlies on the other side of the road) and Mary in there was fantastic. the other woman then rang Mary and had a go at her saying we had changed our trip 4 times (we had only booked the night before and the ticket proved no changes had been made). Mary got us on the later bus even though the woman from Thalios even phoned Water City and said we hadnt paid for transport!!!! it clearly showed on our ticket we had, but it still meant 15 minutes of sorting out when we got to the park - needless to say, we didnt have to pay again in the end-rightly so!!! Trip well worth it, but took ages to get there so taxi worth the 40 euros even if only one way. Use Charlies Travel for your trips and it will be much easier and hassle free (we were only there 3 days so it took a bit of our valuable time up sorting out the problem,

Places to eat We found numerous places where you can get a good meal and reasonably priced. When you reach the end of the road leading from the Dedalos, if you turn left you are on the very busy main strip where you can get traditional English food in the many pubs and cafes. Right on the corner you will find the Union Jack where you can sit and watch the world go by. You will also find an excellent Mexican restaurant, Gringo's, where we dined a couple of times, plus Chinese and Indian (we didn't get round to trying these). If you turn right at the top of the road and carry on walking a little way, you will enter another world as you come to the old town towards the mountains and you will find some lovely authentic Greek restaurants including San Giorgio, a very pretty restaurant with traditional Greek music and dancing at the weekend and Petroni, across the road from San Giorgio, where we also had an excellent meal.All in all you are spoiled for choice when it comes to eating out!!
