Reviewed: August 1. 2006
Just returned from a gr8 holiday in Malia. We stayed @ the Maria Rousse app. which was by far the best place to stay in Malia. Emma who worked at the pool bar was brilliant, she was lovely to us and talked to everyone. George and the team behind the bar were good aswell, willing to help with anything (we were stung with our rental car - not hired through thompson) and they helped us with everything. The newcastle lads in the room next to us were a laugh aswell. Girls as it goes for lads, some are good looking, some mingers about 1/2 1/2 - but if you drink enough shots then what he heck!!! X

the maria rousse was quality probs the best hotel iv bin to for cleanlines etc and its really safe with the security guard and his massive, long.......torch but thats a diferent story. me and my m8 were positioned in a gud spot wiv a gud view on to the pool to chek out the girls. we met some m8's there and we've all agreed to go bk next yr, hopefully in the same room for me and my m8 for balcony banter rnd 2 (malia massive joke). the nite life is class in malia, 80% of girls nice i wud say, about 20% mingers, beta than home. ur not allowed to bring girls bk to hardly any hotels in malia so for the lads, work on the girls in the hotel, there ws plenty. as far as food goes the meals in the hotel were really nice, cant beat an omelette and a pint in the mornin.the best meal over there was cajun chicken frm gringo's a mexican.overall it ws wicked in malia better than any nite out in england, includin blackpool and lookin forward to goin back nxt yr.

We stayed at the Maria Rousse 25th June - 9th July 2006. Blatently the best hotel in Malia, decent rooms and pool. Shame about the sausage fest! Quite good location, away from the noise but not too far to the strip and you can start at the top, work your way down and hopefully end up on the beach wiv a bird!
Avoid AquaPlus waterpark, its crap, go to Water City.
And dont eat in uk bar, out of six of us only one enjoyed their meal!

Oh, and Newcastle bar a must, buy one, get 3 free all night everynight!

Pissed to be home, but fcuk it. Liver's about the size of a pea now anyway

Reviewed: August 11. 2005
The Maria Rousse was very clen and in a mint place, right at the top of the strip. There was no shower curtain so the floor got totally soaked but it didnt really matter as long as you didnt leave out on the floor. The bar was only open till 12 which was a bit crap but through the day it was wicked. The pool was huge ans always clean. The security gard who we named stellios was cool. He was always their and would kick your ass if you made any noise but he was funny. If we went back to Malia we would def stay there again.

We stayed in the Maria Rousse Hotel from 9th June til 23rd June 2005 and it was fantastic, so good in fact that we plan to return next year and do it all again!! Only draw back was that we ran out of money...! The hotel was great, everyone was really friendly and it was close enough to the action that we only had to walk briefly down the road, but far enough away to be quiet as the main strip is noisy. V clean all round, gutted i'm back to reality!

We had an excellent week at the Maria Rousse Hotel. It was exceptionally clean throughout the week and it was situated in a perfect spot within Malia. The staff at the Maria Rousse were very friendly and went out of their way to help. It was a lovely hotel and i would certainly visit again :-)

We had a fantastic time in Malia and the Maria Rousse Hotel was exceptionally high quality. The rooms were clean and spacious and the pool was huge. It was great that it had air conditioning altough the only disadvantage was it stopped when the balcony doors were opened which was a bit of a pain when having to try and switch it on through the doors from the outside. All in all we had a great holiday and three of us are even going bck next year to work..xx

We stayed in the hotel as a group of 8 18 yr olds. We understand that not everyone was going to be like us (a bit noisy) however we did expect the management to understand that we was going to be quite loud and exciteable at times. It seemed that every morning we were getting a telling off. We also felt a little hard done by that our 4 rooms were seperated around the entire hotel. On a more positive note the rooms were reasonably clean and the pool was nice. We will be going back next year!!!
