The apartment was spacious and comfortable and the grounds immaculately looked after. The food was very good and the bar very well stocked. Situated in the old town I think the location is... More

My wife and I spent another 11 nights at Kristalli in September, in our fourth consecutive year of visiting Malia. Everything was once again great. The greeting from the family, the hospitality and comfort and all round sense of fun make it a special place to holiday, quite apart from the weather and local facilities. We will see Kristalli again... More

The family who run it are a great team and make you feel very welcome and are very helpful and pleasant. We spent a good few hours at the pool bar enjoying the... More

We would have liked a larger balcony but we booked pretty late and this was the only room available for the 12 nights. Everything was kept spotless throughout the visit.

Spent a week here beginning of september. Had a 2nd floor apartment. We actually paid extra for a superior studio which we could not have. This is probably more down to jet 2 than the hotel itself. The apt was spacious and very clean. 3 balconies so we go the sun morning and evening. They were cleaned everyday. And had... More
