Located at the top of Malia's buzzing strip, this lively property is a great base for enjoying the town's beaches and nightlife. There's a decent-sized pool with a swim-up bar, too.
It’s the friendly atmosphere that draws guests back to the Hotel Frixos & Apartments year after year. There’s a social pool area and a bar serving big buffet breakfasts.
This place is a 5-minute walk away from the main strip, tucked between shops, restaurants, bars and nightclubs. It’s only about a 20-minute walk from a couple of beaches, too.

family run hotel
We stayed here in may-june last year for the second time and are returning in june this year.I think it is never a 2 star and is fantastic place to stop.The hotel is clean and in the right location for old and new town mala.At this time off year it is not a party place with it just opening up.It has bars with greek familys and couples as well as a few singles.Back to the hotel it is a lot better than most because a lot in malia can be cramped up with a small pool.This is not and has nice green grass with good space. The gardens are kept cleanand food is good.The owner nikos and his family can not do enough for you.see you soon frixos Debbie Debbie Debbie.More
My family and I stayed at this hotel in late August after a bereavement during a previous Holiday in early July on Corfu, This was the only holiday affordable to us with our insurance payout due to it being august, having said that we were advised by Thomson Holidays that it was one of their SCENE hotels and that due its location so close to Malia strip, it was noisy and lively. It was not as bad as we thought it might be, the Hotel was very nice and the owner Nikos was very helpful and always around if you needed him or just wanted a chat. The pool bar served up some awesome lunch's and breakfasts, in fact they even served my favorite breakfast with CHIPS. I was informed by a member of staff that we probably were staying at a more quiet time and that it was not so great to stay in June and July due to the groups of singles, and what comes with that age group after a night in Malia. So my recommendation is this, If your a party animal aged between 18 and 25, definitely go to this hotel, but please please respect the hotel, Nikos and his staff as they really deserve it. If your a family and have a good tolerance of younger noisy party animals, go here if you like, but I personally, if I had the choice would stay in quieter resort. Thank you Frixos Hotel for a very good Holiday.More

Cheap apartment that made us feel unappreciated
Apartment we rented was supposed to have a kitchen. What it really had was just one hot plate and a sink. There was no washing liquid, no sponge. One pan and one pot, both terrible quality. I had a very unpleasant experience with 'Hermes' scooter renting company in Malia. Owner have hit me with a chair. Then threatened me. He knew my personal data from my driving licence and that I am staying in Frixos hotel. Management of the hotel could do nothing about it, would not transfer us somewhere else, would not refund us any money when I decided to leave the hotel. Owner not helpful at all, not involved whatsoever. Sad experience that ruined my whole vacation.More
Will be back again!
Brilliant place to stay! Great atmosphere! Friendly staff and clean accommodation. Charlies bar was perfect for pre-drinks before you head out on the strip(about a 10 minute walk away).Food served at the bar was decent and good prices.Nikos made you feel like part of the family!More

Cheap but friendly Apartments
It was my first Crete visit.If you are looking for somewhere basic, friendly and cheap to stay, Frixos Hotel & Apartments is the place for you!I also had an unmissable trip into the mountains to a Traditional Cretian night. Amazing food (as much as you can eat) with unlimited wine, traditional dancing etc. Trip cost â¬30.I also visited Tourist Night in the Old Town..More
