7,1 Good
Pros: The layout, gardens and onsite facilities at the resort are great (and very clean). Although it was fully booked, we never had the sense that it was overcrowded. We had dinner one evening at the Sunset restaurant which was lovely and we would recommend. We left feeling more rested than when we arrived, which is mission accomplished!
Cons: Ikaros Beach Resort is marketed as a 5 star hotel and whilst it is lovely, there are little things that fall short of a 5 star experience. A couple of examples; not replenishing the toiletries when they'd run out, the mattress was quite thin and not particularly comfortable and despite being a recently renovated room, it was starting to show signs and wear and tear, so we didn't get the sense that they are maintaining the fixtures and furnishings. As a couple, we were 'upgraded' a family room which turned out to have more space but was far outdated compared with the photos shown on the website. We asked to be moved to a bungalow, per our booking and reception very kindly moved us. I don't want to be unfair to the hotel, because overall we had a lovely stay, but it fell short of the 5 star experience it's marketed as.
5,8 Okay
Cons: Value for money is off. We paid for a a five star luxury hotel, but it felt like a regular packaged deal hotel for the masses. No service on the beach, card tickets required for beach towels, etc.
7,5 Good
Pros: The food was really good , the location is very nice
Cons: The photos on booking is not matching the reality , the staff in the reception were not nice and not eager to help
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Nice view from the junior suite on the cliff, private beach, wonderful breakfast for suite guests, nice establishment in general, you are brought to your room by a golf kart so you will not need to carry your luggage. nice spa, spacious kids room, several restaurants.
Cons: reception staff could improve their attitude, super loud music at night, private pool was too cold, it never faces the sun. no sign of "private area" next to junior suites so you get random guests wandering around your private pool.
9,6 Excellent
Pros: Hotel is based over a big territory and looks very well designed - it feels like it’s own little village / town. It was interesting to walk around the streets between bungalows and explore little cute places. Beautiful gardens , our room was good size and quite comfortable. Although we visited Ikarou Beach hotel in the end of the season (stayed there 2 weeks ago for 1 week), there were still good amount of restaurants and bars open and staff maintained high standards of service throughout - it definitely felt like we stayed at 5 star hotel. We have arrived quite late for our check in due to delayed flights, but hotel staff welcomed us with drinks and offered complementary cold snacks bar, which we found very thoughtful and nice . Out of dinner options (we decided to try few different restaurants during our stay) we would definitely recommend Veranda - fantastic dining experience and amazing food ! Would recommend to try their lobster risotto. Must also mention great service and beautiful design . Overall, we have really enjoyed our stay and it was good value for money - will recommend.
Cons: Clown by the kids / bar poop seemed a little creepy :D Also, would prefer to have bungalow with a bath, but we got one with the shower, may be should have specified and contact the hotel before we moved in.
8,8 Excellent
Pros: Good facilities. Areas for kids and also for adults only.
Cons: Poor food options for vegans.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Very laid back. Once you are in, you feel you are home. No one actually bothers you and very helpful if you ask them.
Cons: The house cleaning rooms were right next to mine. They were making noises every morning and disturbed my sleep. But, they did a very good job of cleaning and no complaints.
9,6 Excellent
Pros: Staff very friendly, polite and nice specially María from the main restaurant, Marzena from the bar, and Erika and Leonil from the Lefko restaurant! Bangaloo with sea view was just perfect located, where I could see the sun rise and set, and few steps from the relaxing pool for adults only (that was calm and really relaxing)! Room was very clean and nice decorated! Breakfast was very good and also the food in the main restaurant and Lefko Restaurant, where I had 3 times dinner because I loved the food!
Cons: Nothing!

6,7 Good
Pros: A spacious apartment in a quiet part of Malia.
Cons: Well, where to start ... while booking this hotel expectations were high due to other reviews and lovely pics. We arrived in the evening and met the host at the pool bar with noisy music. Luckily the music wasn't heard in the room, though the host responded bit arrogant while when we shared our concern that the music may be bit too loud. Not the best start of the stay. The room ... the hotel looks very nice, one could say luxurious from the outside, but what a surprise once you enter the room. There is a spacious room with kitchenette, table with chairs and two beds. The table was rather small for 4 persons and felt IKEA like (nothing against IKEA, but not matching the price level / expectation), the kitchenette and the silver/cooking-ware felt shabby, just a few (too little) sockets to charge all the electronic toys yourself and kids carry along these days. Another surprise was caused by the A/C unit, it was bit noisy inside, but no issue, but the trouble at the room 210 was mainly caused by the external unit that was producing a low frequency humm preventing your sleep being perfect as you expect it while on vacation. The bathroom was not too bad, bit dark and the shower corner missed the curtain (designed curtain-less) with sloping floor to sink the water - unfortunately after taking a shower the whole bathroom was wet. Once we left the towels on the floor expecting the staff provide clean ones, what a surprise to come back and find the dirty towels laying on the floor, we were explained that they are changing towels every other day (in a hotel - seriously?) and were given clean ones. Still, should you find towels on the floor will you not change these anyway? The breakfast was kind of ok, but please note that they are serving until 10:30, so hurry up!
8,8 Excellent
Pros: Great place, great staff and fantastic location
9,2 Excellent

8,3 Excellent
Pros: Nice pool. Nice room. Very comfortable mattress. Clean. Lovely atmosphere. Good Location. Very good experience. Very good value for money. My kids enjoyed it a lot. We had very good time there.
Cons: Breakfast is OK. Don't expect anything super. It is good but not excellent. Rooms look OK but not 100% like in the picture.
9,6 Excellent
Pros: The place we stayed at was modern and contemporary which was nice and the lighting in the room was really nice. The view outside of our room was just of mountains which was gorgeous and the breakfast was good, so much feta!
Cons: There was an issue with the shower, hot water ran out very quickly, we didn't raise this with staff though because we didn't spend much time at the hotel.

8,8 Excellent
Pros: Has everything you need for a relaxing holiday with the family. Good and plentiful food, friendly staff, and nice facilities.
Cons: Mealtime was a little hectic, with dozens of people trying to get space in the buffet line. Lots of kids means there’s not a lot of quiet space or time. Nightly entertainment seems like a perk until you want to go to sleep early, and someone is still singing “Take me home, country roads” in a Greek accent at 10 PM.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: It is a beautifully decorated hotel in an amazingly nice garden at the sea. Just to walk through the property gives you a great vacations feeling. The staff is very kind, helpful, cheerful. The food is very good as well. My favorite: the Cretan corner :-). We will be definitely back again! Thank you for making our stay so great!
9,6 Excellent
Pros: the design is stunning, especially for the price category. if you like your hotel to be visually pleasing, this one ticks all the boxes. we enjoyed the beach restaurant (incredible pizza!), the kids club and the lovely cooking class at mouries.
Cons: the pillows were hard making it difficult to sleep comfortably (would bring my own next time) and our aircon went on and off which was annoying at night. the coffee at breakfast really needs to be better, it tasted cheap and awful and definitely ruined the overall picture for me. we booked half board which means buffet food mornings and evenings. luckily you can also eat at the 2 a la carte restaurants (at a discounted rate) which i recommend over the buffet option. next time id book breakfast only and just eat à la carte or in town. the wines and coffee are way overpriced.
8,8 Excellent
Pros: Extremely friendly staff, very beautiful garden and carefully groomed area. Newly renovated rooms, good food - very good price ratio at 120 Euro half pension per night for 2 adults!
Cons: Malia itself is not a very attractive place but the surroundings are and beautiful Agios Nikolaos is only a short ride away. We would not come here in the summer weeks as it will probably be too "dense" and noisy but the April/May period was just perfect!
9,6 Excellent

The people at the hotel are very nice The breakfast in perfect, and in the room there is a kitchen so you can make your own diner as well...
Cons: Everything was great, except for one night the hotel hosted a big party, for 2,000 people in the garden, the music and the fireworks was so loud, as if it was in our room, and it didn't end even after midnight.. we didn't know anything about it from the hotel, and it was surprising. The bed and the pillow is not so comfortable.

5,8 Okay
Pros: Peace and quiet and the views are fantastic. Reception staff lovely.
Cons: Not very clean, very tired furniture in the bar area, bar staff quite rude, very dirty around the eating areas, broken furniture, rooms dated and quite dirty. Beds in rooms need updating and the bathroom mirrors were pealing, no overhead shower. Really disappointed as my last stay was amazing 4 years ago. Needs a full clean & overhaul definitely not 5* It’s a shame as this was once a gorgeous hotel.

I would have no hesitation to recommend this hotel to anyone travelling to Malia.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: We had a lst floor junior suite with a balcony on the front and one on the side, both with sea views. The bedroom had a comfy king sized bed and air con. The staff were very friendly and the poolside bar served meals and drinks at very reasonable prices, the bar stayed open till midnight. Bars, restaurants and small supermarket within 5 mins walk. Malia is well known as a lively resort with many clubs for the young ones on the strip, we were there first week in October and they were all closed. Restaurant owners and staff were very welcoming, always remembered you and would come out onto the street to give you a hug. Would definitely come back to both the Parthenis and Malia.
Cons: The pictures on your website were deceiving and the apartment wasn't like what we were expecting. The kitchen area consisted of a sink, fridge and 2 ring camping stove, the living area had a dressing table and 2 single beds but no seating and was cramped, (definitely not suitable for 4 people). Saying this, I soon put my disappointment to one side and made the most of it.

6,0 Good
Pros: Reasonable space, perfectly pleasant hotel. Reasonable proximity to the Palace of Malia, which was the main reason for our one night stay.
Cons: The location - it was very much in the heart of a very British tourist area. We go on holiday to experience the local culture, but everything in the immediate vicinity of the hotel was very geared to British tourists - Red Lion and Molly Malone's across the road, Saltire Lounge a little further away. Old town was around 1km away and had restaurants more to our taste.

8,8 Excellent
Pros: Excellent location, suitable for walking and also for running. The hotel is close to beaches, local shops, taverns, restaurants, gift greek shops. Malia's old town is very picturesque with a pleasant atmosphere. Many car rentals/quad bikes. We appreciated the free double-sided transfer. Room – spacious, clean, beautiful views (second floor, pool/garden, very recommended). Fine cleaning service, fresh towels and two small bottles of water every day. Pool – nice & clean, deep. Quiet pool area. Breakfast – tried only once but quite sufficient who do not require special diets. Relaxing garden, privacy, hammock. Many supermarkets in short walking distance (Ria, Stefi market). Super Market Xalkiadakis is 1 km from the hotel, offering fresh fruits, lactose-free & gluten-free products and some organic food. Enjoyed delicious dining in Avli & Drossia restaurant, various taverns to visit. During the whole stay, we were taken care of by a wonderful receptionist Sofia, who has always been smiling, professional and willing to help. Thanks to you we enjoyed the stay very much. Ευχαριστώ
Cons: Hard bed mattresses (fixed by thin foam toppers). Big thanks to Sofia!!! The hotel is relatively quiet, although it took a while to get used to the constant sound of cicadas. The neighboring hotel/resort played loud music until midnight a few evenings (August). Closing the shower door is sometimes a challenge. Wi-Fi could be improved. Furniture is somewhat older but it is sufficient. Impossibility to lock the main door. A 13-inch laptop can not fit into the safety deposit box. The last fact does not apply to the Socrates hotel directly, but it is always sad to see on the beautiful islands like Crete that waste is still not sorted especially plastic.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: I liked the level of the professionalism of the staff, their care for the guests. The breakfast was excellent with a big choice of what to eat and drink. The quality was excellent. All products are fresh and tasty. The location is excellent from my point of view as it is a bit far from the noisy main street but a 5 minutes walk to the restaurants and shops.
Cons: I could not realize how hot water is provided as when the day was not too hot the water in the morning was not comfortable for the shower, even not warm... The rest was OK.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: The hospitality is incredible! Thanks to the staff you can't see any inconveniences. If I will come back to Crete I for sure book Socrates hotel again.

10,0 Excellent
Pros: The best aspect about this accommodation place is the warm, friendly, helpful family who run the business at their best and their great efforts to make you feel the most comfortable. The apartment is of good size, well disposed and very clean. They own the restaurant of the place where the food and service are really great, too. The value for money is good, too. The slight distance from the main busy resort is a plus, in this case. The short walking distance to a quiet beach is a plus, too.
10,0 Excellent
