My friend and I booked a last minute holiday to Malia, booking the Socrates Hotel. We did very minimal research so didn’t have high expectations. However, when we arrived we were pleasantly surprised with how lovely the hotel were. The rooms were cleaned daily, towels were swapped for fresh ones and bottles of water were left each day. The staff are all so friendly! Marlena on reception was super helpful with suggestions for where to eat, visit and booking excursions. The hotel was lovely and quiet, but only a short walk away from the night life if that’s what you’re looking for. The only down side was the hotel bar being closed, but it’s totally understandable due to the current pandemic. Will definitely be back next year!!
Brilliant location close to beach, restaurants & shops. Friendly & helpful staff, great hotel with a lovely pool area. We had a lovely holiday last year and have booked to go again this year. We had a 2 bed apartment which was lovely with a spacious balcony. The hotel was also kept spotlessly clean.
If you are looking for a friendly clean well appointed and situated hotel in Malia near the beach and town, this is it. Could not fault the staff, very friendly and always able to offer advice on places to visit. We stayed five nights but could have stayed longer. Room was very nice, good bed air conditioning worked well and clean. Pool was lovely and kept cleaned, could not fault our stay for the money
