6/10 Good

The owners were friendly and helpful, and it was cheap. However, the fact that A/C was NOT included was well hidden in the list of conditions. While Expedia listed the place as "having A/C", you actually have to pay 6-8 Euros extra to actually "use" the A/C. I think it is important for potential future customers to know that yes, the place is cheap and the owners are nice, don't be surprised that you will have to pay extra for A/C.

Amazing hotel :)
Ou studio economy room was amazing. We were pleasantly surprised that the little kitchen included a sink, refrigerator, stove, pot and a pan. The family who ran the hotel was incredibly friendly and always wanting to help out in any way possible. Location seas amazing. Only an 18 minute walk away from the beach.

The most friendly staff and the most homely stay.
Myself and a friend stayed at the Ibiscus Hotel in Malia for 6 nights. This is the first ever review I have made about a hotel, and I truly believe it deserves a brilliant rating. This was our first holiday abroad without a parental presence and, as you can imagine, we were a bit nervous. However as soon as we found the manager of the hotel, we instantly felt so much more relaxed. He quickly and helpfully took us through the important details of our stay, informed us about the AC, and that we were able to ask them for any help. During our stay we both wanted to try hiking through the Samaria Gorge (about five hours from Malia by coach) the manager and his wife were able to set us up with our excursion tickets and advice on the trip within 20 minutes of us enquiring. Every time we came back to the hotel after a day of exploring they welcomed us warmly and on occasion we engaged with them about how we are getting on. The environment at Ibiscus Hotel really did enhance our experience in Malia and the staff really do care about you having a brilliant time while you are there. During the day it was peaceful, with music playing in the main area with the pool and a beautiful view of the mountains all around. On our last night at the hotel it was a little bit emotional for me and my friend to say goodbye to the staff, that in itself highlighted how wonderful we had felt during our stay. If I ever come back to the same area, without a doubt or second thought I would stay here again.

Séjour crétois à petit prix
L'accueil est excellent. Les 2 frères sont hyper accueillants et sympathiques. Le coin piscine est agréable, y prendre un petit déjeuner crétois l'incite. Les chambres ne donnent pas sur la route, ce qui est un avantage. Par contre, les chambres sont mal isolées, et c'est difficile à supporter si des voisins sont bruyants. Sinon , c'est un coin agréable pour un petit prix

8/10 Very good

La struttura era semplice ed essenziale ma pulita; i proprietari (due fratelli) sono straordinariamente gentili e ci hanno fornito molte informazioni su quanto avremmo potuto vedere nei dintorni. La posizione della struttura è molto buona (un po' difficile da trovare...), in zona tranquilla ma vicina al centro, comodissima per raggiungere Malia Vecchia e con facilità di parcheggio. Sono soddisfatto della scelta fatta, se non si cerca il lusso la struttura è vecchiotta ma ottima. Lo consiglio

Accueil excellent ! Les chambres sont malheureusement mal insonorisées, ce qui gêne considérablement le repos nocturne.
