Great holiday! Great hotel!
My pal and I booked a last minute deal to malia expecting to be partying every night and using the hotel as a base to recover from the hangover! Well we were pleasantly surprised when we arrived! We were greeted warmly by the reps Kay and Connor, they did an on the spot welcome meeting which was ideal because they filled us in with what was going on which we decided to do it all! Great decision! The events were all pretty good! Some were exceptional! The hotel was great! The bar area was clean and tidy, massive selection of drinks all using decent alcohol at what I would say was a decent price! The bar snacks were great and the bargain breakfast was a life saver after a fun packed evening! Snoop was always around to keep everyone in check and runs a mean BBQ! Big shout out to all the staff at the ilios, the place is very well run! The rooms were basic but very functional! We had plenty of space and the aircon is a must! Well worth the £50 euros for the week! Shower had decent pressure and although the bathroom was more like a wet room after a shower it was fine! Cleaners were in everyday and very polite! Couldn't ask for better reps! Kay especially would always have a smile on her face and would always do her upmost to solve any issues or questions we had! She was everywhere making sure everything went to plan! Even had time to socialise with everyone to and keep everyone smiling! Can tell she loves her job and that's great to see! Always fully supported by the hotel is good to see too! Had a great week here at ilios! Would recommend to anyone looking to have a great time in malia this is the place to come! More
Clean, central location, good
Can't fault the location, bang on the strip. We got the holiday at a good price with Thomson, 2 weeks. Maybe 2 weeks in Malia was a bit much but we loved it. There is Illios 1 which is behind Help Bar and then Illios 2 which is over the road behind Chicken Hut. The Illios Restaurant (which I highly reccomend), Illios 1, Illios 2, Help Bar and Chicken Hut are all owned by the same person. We stayed in Illios 2 and if I went again, which I sure would then I would choose Illios 1. The pool is behind Help Bar in front of Illios 1 and is tiny but has plenty of sunbeds and it is never too busy. The beach is about 10 minutes walk and it is a nice beach. Emma the Thomson rep at this hotel is such a babe, she will make sure you have a good holiday. We had such a laugh with Emma! If you book an event like the boat party then Emma will try her best to make sure you get yourself out of bed and go instead of laying in bed hungover! The ladies behind the bar, Poppy in the day and Christine at night also want to make sure you have a good time. Tip haha: Buy an 18 Euro fishbowl from Christine and the magic words are "Keep the change!" She will look after you The rooms are fairly basic yet clean and the maids do come in and keep them clean. On the first week we didn't pay for the aircon but when the heatwave started on day 8 we didn't really have a choice but to buy it for the rest of the holiday. 7 Euros per night which is a bit expensive but if you sleep with the door open then you'll wake up with half the cast from Bugs Life in your room like we did. WiFi is good around the reception, pool and Help Bar. My only issues this holiday were the security guard at night was a bit strict, he wouldn't let you in other people's rooms in Illios 1 if you were staying in Illios 2 but I guess he is just doing his job? On top of that, some girls who we made friends with got charged 30 Euros for accidentally breaking a plastic chair on the balcony - ridiculous.More

Great place, Great staff
5 lads on a holiday to have fun, found this place online and its location was perfect, we were in Ilios II which is the apartments behind the help bar, staff were lovely with the security guard who was there at night the friendliest we've ever met. We never felt at risk had amazing food on the half board for what you pay for well worth it. Would recommend and do again.More
Booked as a last minute deal, staff were friendly and the reps Kay and Connor were great. Rooms were basic, no hot water after 8pm though. We had a room at the back of the hotel which was super noisy so cant imagine what it was like at the front round the pool. If you want to get any sort of sleep BRING EARPLUGS! Other than the noise we had a good time.More
