"I have been to many holidays organised by 18-30 type operators and I have to say this was the worst.
The Escapades rep was rude and negative. We bought the full events package, only to find when on the bar crawl (1st event) the reps took us to the most expensive bars and nothing was FREE (not even a free shot).
So we decided to cancel all our events, as I donât think they would be value for money unlike other tour operates event packages I have been on. When we asked for a refund the rep had a temper tantrum and basically had a go at us.
We only got a part refund of 80 Euros out of 160 (remember we bought are own drinks on the only event we went on).
Regarding the hotel well I have never stay in a more disgusting hotel. Staff were rude, I saw a rat swing into the kitchen, food was not up to standard, bed sheets not changed in the whole 10 days, towels the size of a flannel and to top it all off you had to pay 7euros each way to get into Malia or to closest supermarket - you couldnât walk it as stated in brochure as it is on main road.
I would advise if you are thinking of going to Hotel Nikos - DON'T!"

"Me and 3 mates went to Nikos last October and although it was coming to end of season, the rep was completely negative the minute we arrived and told us all the places that were shut.
Then our rooms werenât even near each others, even though the hotel was half full and the staff and rep were completely rude.
The rooms were complete dives! They say there is a radio - from the 1960's and it doesnât even work, my room over looked a gorgeous farm!
And my friends overlooked the top of the bar/ kitchen, where we actually saw rats scurrying underneath the roof of the kitchen and running around!
Not to mention its ages away from Malia centre and 7Euros just to get there in a cab!
Worst hotel I have ever been to!"

"This hotel was awful. Despite what MyTravel tell you, this is neither self catering (none of the rooms have any kitchen facilities), nor close to the strip - you are at least a 15min walk / 7euro taxi ride from the centre of Malia.
The bar is not open 24 hours a day. Yannis, the surly bar tender / owner closes the bar when he is tired and will even try to kick you out if you're still in the bar.
This hotel is very basic, one to be avoided at all costs."

"Hotel Nikos was ace. The atmosphere was great. Our rep was mega.
The only fault with the hotel is may be the rooms are a bit too basic. But hey you hardly see the room so letâs not complain.
Excellent if I ever go back to Malia I would definitely go back to The Nikos."

"Awesome holiday, Iâve been home for 1 day and want to go back already. The hotel is perfect. The staff are some of the most friendly people you will meet and the pool and bar area is really good.
Only 15 min walk to the main strip and probably only a 2 min drive in a taxi (which is cheap). I thoroughly recommend hotel Nikos to anyone looking at holidays in Malia because I am looking at going there again next summer.
My advice... go there."

"I had the best holiday at the hotel Nikos I have ever had. There was a group of four of us that went.
The hotel staff were lovely, very friendly. They did all sorts of English food in the pool bar which was lovely.
Rooms were basic, but clean and couldnât complaint.
Had quite a few good nights out in Malia which was only a 5min taxi ride away, or 15min walk. But also had a few good nights just sat in the pool bar which we kept open until god knows what time in the morning. Had a great holiday and i will be going back again next year no doubt about it.

"It is everything you are looking for if your going for the partying scene.
You could come and go as you please at what ever time! The bar was open 24hrs and the pool was good! It takes about 5mins by taxi max to get to the Main Strip and all taxis are really cheap! All the staff were really friendly and the rooms are basic but clean!
There were 6 of us that went all girls 19-21 and we had the best holiday ever and will be going again this year!"
