me and 6 friends went to malia last month for our first holiday away together and it was everything i expected and more! first of all on the coach we were worried when we saw the state of some of the hotels we dropped off at, but when we arrived at the yiannis manos it was a sigh of relief..
our ages went between 20 and 32 and the hotel catered for all of us.. for the money we paid we were surprised at how clean the rooms were kept, the maids changed our sheets every two days and we were given fresh towels.. the hotel has two pools, there are no signs up but it looked like one was a more quiet and chilled out pool and the other was more lively, there were a couple of families in the hotel at the same time as us but they were really friendly and we got along with them all.. the staff in the hotel were great, they looked after us well, one day our tap got stuck and there was a man there within minutes and he fixed it straight away for us without fuss.
the hotel at night was a really nice place to be, the bar had happy hour on where the drinks were alot cheaper then clubs on the strip and you can actually taste the alcohol in them unlike most places. i recommend the fishbowls, many nights the staff played games with us at the bar with them and they did the trick! :p
security at the hotel was very serious but the man did his job very well, he didnt miss a trick, if you speak to him first you realise he is very friendly, we read alot of stories before arriving at the hotel warning us to beware of him but we had no issues atall and spent alot of time talking to him after our drunkern nights out, im sure he loved our stories haha!
all in all, this hotel is great value for money, if i went back to malia i wouldnt choose to stay anywhere else and i would definately recommend it to anybody, wether on a holiday to get drunk and stumble home, or a more relaxed holiday with the family, the hotel seemed to cater for everyone.. its just far enough away from the strip so no booming music all night long but only a 5 minute walk for people like ourselves that wanted to party, and party we did, malia strip was immense!
malia was the best holiday together we could of asked for, staying at the yiannis manos was a bonus for us! thanks to everybody there, we'll be back next year for definate! hope this post helps..
