Came here in Summer 2015 with 10 other lads to celebrate leaving school. From start to finish, the staff were lovely - always on hand to help us out, serve food and have a chat. The location was ideal - we actually went as a group of 56, all split up into different hotels but our hotel became the meeting...

Liked the location: very close to the nearest and wide sandy beach (but not the best in Malia) and walk distance to everywhere you want. Lobby area was very cozy. Absolutely didn't like the room cleaning - very poor, sand was everywhere and the housemaid always used to do it in evenings when it's the most uncomfortable time. The worst...

All the staff are so friendly - bar staff, cleaners and security, The pool area is lovely - great size of pool, lots of umbrellas and sun loungers. The studios are...

Great relaxing place to stay. The price is great and the owners are friendly. It's just off the main strip so it's easy to go out, but if you want to stay in its very quiet. I loved my stay at the stella maria

It was really easy to find since it's right at the centre of the town, very close to clubs and pubs yet very very quite. The beach was just 5 minutes away, but it wasn't really nice, really crowded and with rocks, so we used the pool which on the contrary was beautiful, clean and with air beds for everyone...

The staff in this hotel were very friendly and helpful. There is a cafe, bar and pool on the main level. Our room was clean and nice. The shower, however, had no curtain, which meant that it was quite difficult to take a shower and keep the bathroom clean! One thing that you should probably be aware of is that...

Stella, her son and her daughter all worked at the hotel and were extremely helpful from the minute we arrived! When my phone fell into the pool, Stella gave immediately gave me a bag of rice to put it into. As we were bought so many beers at the bar, they offered us free shots and cocktails as well as...

I had one of the best holidays visiting Malia, Crete. From the minute we got there we realized we where in heaven. The staff was so nice and even invited us out to dinner one night that was amazing, we danced all night and watched the sun rise, amazing. The room was beautiful and clean.
