Positives: Nice communal areas and pool. Clean. Negatives: Was not made very welcome on arrival. Room was as basic as they come, more like a cell, paper thin walls, little natural light, no tv, aircon charged at 40 euro per week.

Just returned from the Maria Rousse Studio Apartments. A fantastic location with a very genuine warm and friendly family business. Spotlessly clean with comfortable bungalow style rooms, we were self catering so fridge, cooker, all available in our room, defiantly pay for room air-con worth every Euro. The food at the bar is ok for a snack or something quick,...

We booked the Maria Rousse only 10 days before arriving at this lovely place. Reading other Tripadvisor reviews really helped in our decision to book here. When you think of Malia you think of noisy clubbers and music blasting out 24 hours a day. If you want all that take a trip down 'The Strip' and it’s all there for...

We are a couple in our fifties and booked this last minute holiday, two weeks at the Maria Rousse, only two days before we flew. We were a little apprehensive about staying in Malia, but when we arrived at the apartments we were very pleasantly surprised. Our apartment was perfectly clean and presented. We were in the newest block on...

Returned yesterday after a week with my mate Gary. We are both older than the usual Malia demographic. This was not a problem for us in this great family run complex. We were made to feel very welcome. The rooms are excellent and the location is ideal for the old town as well as the crazy main road. Special thanks...

My brother and I booked last minute having read many excellent reviews which only touch the surface of what George and Barbara who are (siblings) offer. We chose self-catering and the room offers everything necessary to cook your own food, however the Bar offers very reasonably priced meals and snacks to suit every taste. Free wifi is offered if you...

Me and my partner stayed at Maria rousse on 31st of July to 8th August. We booked a late deal with Olympic holidays that only cost £587 for both of us. We arrived early hours of the morning 4am and were surprised at how hot it was. The rooms are very hot as we found when we first got there...

I was really worried when booking last minute that I had made a big mistake but couldn't have been more wrong. My 16 year old daughter and I have just returned. First thoughts.

At Maria Rousse they love children. There is a separate Children's pool near the main pool. There is not a kids club for them though. The beach is about 15 to 20 minutes walk.

Cant remember the amount for the air con, but I can remember that we only decided that we wanted it for the last few days and the owners only charged us for those few days and not the whole week, which we thought was very fair and very welcome. Agree with above answer too - highly recommended as a place to stay.
