We had a great stay here. Lovely view and location. Beautiful swimming pool and garden. Staff is very firiendly and the location upon the hill near old Malia is perfect for visiting Malia, the beaches and other places in the area. The hotel has a nice gym as well.
I highly recommend this hotel. Upon our arrival into Greece, the awareness of the year 2020’s unprecedented viral impact is apparent. The people of Greece are doing all they can to protect both themselves and the tourists. Our whole experience, at both airport and hotel have made my family feel safe, secure and comfortable as all done in a friendly way.
The Royal Heights Resort have accepted the COVID-19 crisis and have focused on making their customers feel both safe and comfortable. The hotel is clean and the staff are very friendly and pleasant. My family and I felt welcome, extremely safe, and well take care of.
The surroundings are beautiful set high above Malia with beautiful aspects of both the sea, the Cretan countryside, and the high ground of Crete. The views in one word are ‘Stunning’.
The room was clean, comfortable, and very large for my family of four. The balcony overlooked the very clean pool and sea and the views are fantastic. The room caters for everything. The pool has fountains , a waterfall effect and the area well cared for.
My wife had her Birthday here and the hotel surprised us with a delicious cake. The quality of food and drink are excellent, with the service to match. We were half board and the choice of food is wide and varied, from traditional Greek to more contemporary tastes and of course, something in between. The staff were very helpful in catering to our expectations with Artemis, Stavros, and the rest of team doing whatever they can to make you feel welcome.
For breakfast with Covid in mind, the staff would serve and cater to your request ensuring minimum contact. We had a lovely surprise with Galaktaboureko placed on our table at breakfast..something delicious that went well with the coffee. The whole food and beverage team at the hotel are fantastic.
From our before our arrival, Maria at the receptionist team was in contact with us to ensure our needs were taken care of. We had a warm welcome upon arrival from Athina and Maria and were given a cool welcome drink.
Overall, The service was personal, the hotel clean , and the experience will not be forgotten. Very highly recommended.
Our 3rd stay here but probably our last.
The Ambassador villa 406 that we stayed in is looking tired and dated now considering the not inconsiderable cost.
Basically, nothing has been renewed or updated in the 12 years since this place was built.
The same can be said of the bar/restaurant areas, damaged seats and that tired look that only a bit of investment can correct.
Great breakfast still, despite the Covid measures.
We took a look at quite a few hotels on the island during this stay to get a feel for what was on offer and just feel that this place is getting left behind which is a crying shame given it's enviable location.
A few USB sockets, a modern TV with HDMI port, kitchen/bathroom refurb and bedroom doors that can be closed fully without the might of Hercules is all that is needed.
Oh and seal up the 20mm gap under the main door that allows unwanted creatures easy access, along with the damaged insect screens to the patio doors.
