Ammos Boutique Apartments & Suites
11 Traveller reviews from Holiday Watchdog
"Stayed in these apartments after reading the positive reviews. Great place close enough to walk to busy centre of Malia for the younger ones but also far enough away to be quiet for family groups. All the staff are excellent and really do bend over backwards to make sure you are happy. Apartments a good size and very clean. Pool is lovely, quite big and with a grassed area on one side so you don't all have to be on top of each other by the pool. Security also excellent and always somebody on site even through the night making sure everything is ok. Good selection of restaurants within walking distance. Supermarkets just around the corner. Beach a few moments away. Only down side was mosquitos and if you had very small children no kiddies pool."

"This was the best week of my life and most definetly my best holiday yet! Ammos Apartments were bril! Were very clean, had everything we needed and the staff their was very helpful! Only downfall was the maid service, as there is only 1 lady doing it i found her lazy. I wouldnt suggest these apartments for families, when i stayed it was all young people from the ages of 17 - 30. It is very lively and had a great atmosphere, and to top the greatness of Ammos Apartments off it is only a very short walk to the main strip. Definetly be returning here."

"just back from a two week stay at the ammos apts ( june/july '11). The apts are very very clean, pool is gorgeous and staff very friendly. air conditioning is available for 50 euros a week and is most definately needed! safe available too. the apts are a five minute walk to the strip and two mins from a beach, this beach though is full of oldies so if you go to the strip and at mac donalds turn left that takes you to the main beach. i recommend MIKES beach, ten euros fro the week including parasol and there are two lads that work there who will bring you your food and drinks. food at mikes is brill and v cheap! ate there every day for lunch! they also let you use their lilos etc which is great!
the night life in malia is superb, although this year there is a tax on alcolhol so can b expensive, instead of drinkin in your apt first, go to HELP BAR, they do the best and most lethal fishbowls on the strip, they are very cheap and one large one costs 25 euros and will do 3 ppl for one night! we started there every night and have few memories of leaving help! Club candy is gr8 and so is zig zag.. just so u no... malia is full of guys!! brilliant! for eating id recommend if you like greek food, the symposium restaurant which you pass on your way to the strip form the ammos... security at the hotel is strict at night time, no bringing ppl bak or makin noise.. if u do fancy a wee night time stroll on the beach id recommened nto using the main beach as vv busy,.. when at entrance to ammos keep going down that road, it takes you to a rivate beach with vv comfy beds, dont htink you can use it during the day though.
AMMOS is GREAT!!MALIA IS FANTASTIC!! ive just booked to go bak next week!"

BEST 2 WEEKS OF MY LIFE :)
"Went to Malia for 2 weeks in june this year and was absalutely amazinggggggg!!!! had been there 24hrs and had broke plantpots , got lefty(awsome guy) into a fight as some crazy quadbike woman threatened to kill me haha so all was fantastic. Apartments were lovely and cleaned everyday , the pool was great - food and drinks all amazing too. recommend the vanilla milkshake/chips and beans and the cocktails are WOOOOPA! pricing for the bar and food was a tad weird but that was it. Lefty (the owner) is a really good guy and will literally do anything to make sure your time there is good. He helped out alot with our stupid [--] friend who booked her self into a hotel on her own miles away from us by managing to get her in next to us for the full 2 weeks! he was a darling. Met alot of great people , the apartments are literally a 5/10 minit walk from the strip , a 2 minute walk from the beach and is surrounded by places to eat. The only problem is that the apartments also accomodate families/couples so having to be quiet at night was a right pain in the [--] so thats the only reason i would maybe go else where! but apart from that AMAZINGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG xxx"

"This was our first holiday away with friends and I couldn't have had a better time, the apartments where more than satisfactory and the staff were the best. The apartment had everything you could need and the bar service was great. The location is a 10 minute walk from the main strip and a 2 minute walk from the beach, security also ensured that the apartments were safe and quiet for when we returned. Amazing restuarants and bars nearby...you must go to the Red Lion bar for tea! Overall it is a fantastic location and atmosphere!!!
P.S. The owner (Lefty) is awesome"

just back from a two week stay at the ammos appartments in malia. We had a great time. The appartments are in a great location. There not to far away from the main strip for those who like the main nightlife, yet they are far enough away so that you cant hear the noise if you are looking to have a quiet night.
When we first arrived we couldnt believe our luck, the appartments looked brilliant. Our first impressions were great. We arrived in the middle of the night and the place was all lit up, it looked really good. When we arrived they took our passports off us and asked us for 30 euros for our safe. At the time we were a bit worried about this, but I can gurantee that the passports are completely safe.
Our room was excellent, not too big, not too small. It was really clean and fresh looking. We had a great view of the sea and the pool from our balcony. Throughout our stay our rooms were cleaned to the highest standard by the maid.
whilst we were there we chose to spend most nights by the pool bar. The owner lefty is brilliant. He was always chatting away with us. The food he served as great. The prices were slightly dearer than outside the appartments . The bar was a good meeting point for everyone. The first week we were there there was alot of young people who used to drink there before they went out. The second week it was more couples and fammilies who used to sit and chat. Lefty helped create a really nice family atmosphere in the place.
overall I was impressed with the ammos apartments. I wouldnt return because i didnt like malia but if these appartments were in a different location then I would deffinetly go back."

Ammos the Best
"The Ammos Apartments are excellent, anyone who has been on a selfcatering holiday in Greece will expect clean basic accomadation, well the Ammos exceeds all. The apartments are very clean well furnished with a eye to detail, the pool is a good size and clean. The well stocked poolside bar is where you can get snacks in the day and where most of the guests meet up at night and have some laughs.
The owner (nickname) Lefty makes you feel welcome and at ease at once.
The location is handy for everyone's needs be it the clubs and disco bars far enough away not to be disturbed or a lovely meal at the taverns,or browsing round the shops and the beach is just a short walk away.
I have been a number of times on my own to the Ammos and met some lovely people, people who like myself have come back again and again.

"when we booked the holiday i did not think that the accomidation would be that good because malia is thought to be a party place. But when i arrived i was surprised, as we arrived at night the ower was there to greet us and give us our keys. we had to give them our passports for the week which was fine. A safety box in the room could be brought for 20 euros.
The rooms were spotless and we was surprised how big they were. we were on the second floor so we had a great view of both the swimming pool and the sea. the hotel is in a great location only a few mins walk from the beach and about a five min walk from the strip.
this is a family run small hotel so there was always plenty room around the pool. food and drink at the pool bar was very resonable and yummy. i would deff recommend this to anyone and i am sure you will have a greayt time if you stay here. "
