Loads of places to eat but we are retired and Malia is a young people's resort, other than boat trip which was good and happy train to mountain village also good.

They have recently improved the appearance of the main street, but it remains a chaotic party town with little flair. Good for folks loving night life and cost conscious travellers. Only 30 minutes from the airport by taxi which is good.

We have stayed at in Malia a few times but I honestly don't think we will go back. We will definitely go back to Crete but a different location.

The hotel is well managed, the staff work hard and do a good job. The town is at the end of a long driveway out of the hotel, with local shops and a few restaurants and bars. It's 1km away from the main part of Malia with the clubs so is in a peaceful location. On the whole a lovely holiday, mainly due to the lovely relaxing day times and I would consider a repeat visit.<br />

The Malia "strip" for us as 50 somethings was awful so we stayed away. The Beach Road leading to Stalis was much more to our taste apart from the constant Quad bikes and 2 stroke fumes. The closer to Stalis the better it became. Malia old town was quiet and we had a great meal and hospitality in one of the many taverns.

Malia has a reputation as a party resort and attracts the lad drinking culture. I stay in the old town of Malia which is beautiful and peaceful. You can have both in Malia. The nightlife down 'The strip' kicks off after midnight and can easily be avoided. I find Malia safe and the locals are lovely and welcoming.

Malia itself is very lively, shops and bars, busy with the young teens and families. A lot of traffic, especially quad bikes and driving is not for the faint hearted! However, the Socrates Hotel is a bit away from there and although there was a road behind the hotel, it was so quiet and we slept well. As we are of the more mature holiday makers, our two daughters went horse riding in the mountains and had a wonderful if not hair-raising time. They also enjoyed the beach. We ate in some lovely tavernas and restaurants and we were always greeted with smiles. There is lots to do boat trips etc. We found the Socrates to be a lovely family hotel, which as our son said, ticked all our boxes.

We were in the quieter area of Malia in a peaceful hotel, however Malia itself is more for the young and partygoers - quad bikes being the favourite - but I have to say we didn't experience any bad behaviour or drunkenness. My daughter and daughter in law did a horse ride in the mountains not for the faint hearted I understand. Our son hired a car and we went to the mountains and visited lovely tavernas. We only used a taxi once and that was expensive but otherwise food quite reasonably priced. There were lots of other activities ie: boat excursions etc.

The hotel is actually located in Stalis which is away from Malia itself, Stalis is a lovely town offering many restaurants, bars and shops but the hotel is about a 10 minute walk so far enough away not to disturb the peace but close enough if you want it. We would recommend the restaurant Lambros which sits facing the sea and also has a small children's play area and Yoghurtlandia which is a lovely frozen yoghurt bar in town. The waterpark in Hersonissos is only 20 minutes away and is worth a day out for families, the kids had a great day out here and tickets can be bought locally or in advance using companies such as Viator. For this I would recommend booking an inclusive package that includes a meal whilst your there, it just makes life easier! The beach in Stalis is lovely, it isn't always calm as the welcome breeze comes in from that direction but still is a lovely beach. It has many bars that offer free sunbeds if you buy a drink or food from them and also has water sports to offer. You will also find very large doughnuts and fresh fruit being sold throughout the day along the beach. Great place for the kids too.

Close enough to the night life and restaurants. Some clubs a little expensive but that is to be expected with a resort like this.

Beaches

The stretch of beach runs for over 5kms and is divided into six sections which are all lined with bars and restaurants. Glozanie Beach has a great choice of watersports and the Potomas Beach is popular with the locals.

Nearby Attractions

Malia's old town is a maze of cobbled streets and medieval churches which are perfect to wander around. However for those that wish to explore the nearby area, Heraklion is just a 45 minute drive away where there is a Venetian harbour, fortress and lighthouse to explore. Additionally visitors can take boat trips from the harbour to nearby resorts.

Quick Facts

Heraklion Airport is approximately 38 km away - transfer time about 45 minutes.
