such a good week, i went with a group of 7 girls but we had another group of friends in a different hotel which was soo bad compared to ours. Out of all the hotels i saw while i was out there yiannis manos was 100% the best. There's 2 big pools, one is more chilled and the other one is more lively. There's music playing non stop and a pool party in the middle of the week which is v good. The rep's do try and sell you a bunch of trips like booze cruise and malia splash, but we thought they were very overpriced so didn't go on any and still had an amazing week. Hotel is very safe and secure, we had no worries that anything would get stolen or anything and you can get aircon for your room for 60 euros for 1 week BUT if you have more than 1 room only get aircon for one of the rooms as the remote for it works in more than one room. The walk to the strip is about 7 minutes but it's literally just down 1 road so it seems really short. i wouldn't get quad bikes because they don't tell you when you get them that insurance is 200 euro. But we just got lifts on other peoples quad bikes. The beach is very nicee and about the same distance from the hotel as the strip and has loadsa water sports etc which are well priced and you can bargain with them to get cheaper. We ate alll of our food at the hotel bar because it was nice and pretty cheap, you can get most meals for 4.50 euro ish and they have a 2 for 6 euro drink deal at night so we tended to pre a bit on our balcony and then go get a few drinks at the bar before walking to the strip. We usually didn't walk to the strip till around 1/2 but some people did go earlier. Rooms are spacious and bathrooms are fine just make sure you put a towel down on the bathroom floor after you've showered because it gets verrrrry wet. each room has different appliances, we only had a stove and fridge but others had microwaves etc. the fridges work well though which is very good for ice cold drinks as it is veeeeery hot in the day. You aren't allowed to take your own food and drink down to the pool so just buy a bottle of water (for 1 euro) by the pool and then fill it up with water from upstairs to save money. We went for a week and most of us took around 300/350 euros which was the perfect amount. I wouldn't get your money on a travel debit card as one of us did that and it costs 2.50 euro each time you get money out which doesn't sound much but adds up if you go every night and sometimes the atm's didn't work so then you're left with no money. in some hotels it's probably a good idea but at yiannis manos it's very safe so i wouldn't worry. we liked zoo bar, banana and apollo the best but the best places i think depend on when you go/who is there/ what you like but the strip is realllly good in general. if you get ill there's a med centre on the strip so you'll be fine. Personally we didn't have any problems with the greeek children but others did so be careful, they apparently try to mug you. Cleaners bring fresh towels and sheets etc but it's not a 5 star spring clean, but you don't need that, make sure if you have more than one room and take towels etc into each others rooms that you bring them back or you will get charged. All bar staff were really really nice and friendly. Overall was literally one of the best weeks of my life, an amazing holiday and if i was to go again i would 100% choose the same hotel. it's definitely the best hotel out there, unless you're looking for a quiet chilled family holiday and early nights - in which case i don't think you'd be satisfied with anywhere in malia. If you're looking for a fun amazing weeek with your girls/lads then i definitely recommend it :)

What a great hotel to stay at, looking at other hotels by the strip made us all pleased we'd chosen to stay at Yiannos Manos.

Entertainment was very good, had a pool party while with live DJs from a nearby club.

Before coming I had read bad reviews about George the security guy, don't let this worry you at all. He is a really sound guy, and its nice to know that nothings going to kick off in the hotel or get belongings stolen.

Food was pretty good and the bar staff were very friendly and helpful.

It was a fantastic holiday and would strongly recommend this hotel to anyone going to Malia. However, I can't stress this enough - Malia is not for families or children!

Couldn't of asked or found a better hotel in malia. All the staff are lovely, but make sure you dont get on the wrong side of the greeks they can be scary. I went with a group of 16 girls and we were all happy with our rooms which fitted 4, they were very spacious had a large balcony and two of the rooms had two balconys. The dj/entertainer Corin is the funniest man alive and gets everyone in a good mood before they head to the strip. The hotel bar has good deal on all cocktails 2 for 6 euros between 9pm - 1 am. The food in the hotel is also really good and cheap. The walk to the strip is about 5-10 mins, which sounds long, but when your drunk and with a group of people it seems about 1 minute long. I would definatley recommend Yiannis Manos for young people who are going to malia for a lively holiday. I had the best week of my life
