    love the Ambrosia Hotel

    This is the second time I have stayed at the Ambrosia Hotel in Malia, Crete and was offered a mountain view which is the best side as sea view is a little obscured by buildings and can be a little noisy with transfer buses and quads. I love staying at this hotel, Maria and Kostas are very accommodating and will do their very best to make sure your stay is comfortable at all times. They speak a little in several languages so communication is excellent for anyone that stays at The Ambrosia Hotel. If you prefer to stay by the pool, Maria & Phillip are on hand all the time for meals and drinks and will even bring them to your sunbeds which are free. If you prefer to sit at the bar there is never a dull moment as their is always laughs with the conversation. The beach is a short walk from the hotel, the sand & sea is beautiful and you can walk a good way into the sea. If you like nightclubs then there is Beach Road which is a strip of clubs. There are lots of restaurants locally to eat and all are in a short walking distance.

    Pros: Maria and Kostas are very accommodating and will do their very best to make sure your stay is comfortable at all times.

    Cons: Nothing I love this place as it is

    Location: Short distance from the beach, restaurants, bars, car and quad hire, excursions & shops

    5/5 Excellent

    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

    Remote, peaceful but still close to strip & beach

    This hotel is a nice family run place and the staff are always accommodating & friendly. We stayed here for 10 days and ate at the pool bar a few times, the food is good and cheap. Shout out to Phil for the figs!

    Stayed 10 nights in Aug 2018


    • Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities

    Aucune isolation, claquement des portes, odeur peu agréable dans la salle de bain, coupure d'eau. L'hôtel mérite une sacrée rénovation. C'était tellement insupportable que après la deuxième nuit, nous avons chercher un autre hôtel. Je ne recommande pas du tout cet hôtel pour les familles.

    allez ailleurs si possible

    Chambre sur la rue très bruyante, pas de personnel à la réception, ni lors de mon appel téléphonique pour avoir de l'aide pour trouver l'hôtel (très mal indiqué dans une jungle d'hébergements), ni à mon arrivée (il a fallu que je cherche dans les couloirs alors que le réceptionniste se reposait près de la piscine !!!!). Salle de bain en état pitoyable, chasse d'eau qui se remplit sans arrêt et finit par déborder, digne d'une caricature. Vaut à peine les 25 euros payés. Seul bon point, le petit déjeuner face à la piscine, ....à payer en supplément, comme la clim.

    • Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

    Hotel bien situé mais insalubre.

    Nous sommes arrivés la nuit. Personne pour nous recevoir. La chambre ne correspondait pas à ce que nous avions reservé. Ce qu’on peut appelé «salle de bain » etait tout simplement horrible. Elle etait sale, pleine de moisissures sur les murs, avec une fenetre qui ne ferme pas et donne sur le balcon de quelqu’un d’autre. Affreux. La climatisation est en supplement de 7 euros par jour : ce n’est pas specifié. Le coffre est en supplement à 10 euros. La piscine n’est pas propre bien qu’elle soit agreable puisque personne n’y va. Ne prennez pas cet hotel pour esperer vous y detendre. La literie est de tres mauvaise qualité et vous dormez dans de tous petits lits. La seule chose positive c’est qu’il est situé pas tres loin de la ville de malia.
