The other reviews capture very well the qualities of staying here, and they are all correct. There is more: the gardening and planting greatly added to the feel and is clearly a long-term activity, making here quite an oasis. For me as a solo traveller and needing time for myself it was absolutely ideal, and being close to the end... More

Okay, so first of all we didn't book this hotel as a package, we sort of stumbled upon it accidentally after having to leave our first hotel because it was totally unclean. We booked this hotel on booking.com upon arriving in Malia, and it's safe to say we couldn't have picked a better place! Upon check-in we were greeted by... More

A very nice hotel which a runs a family. All of them and the stuff are so warm and gently. Service is very good , the hotel is clean and the food delicious. The garden is also amazing. It 's an oasis in the centre of Malia. Highly recommended.
