The lady at the co-op advised us that this trip was best suited to 18-30s boy was she wrong!! We decided on Crete as some friends recommended it to us and we had just about had enough of lancashires drizzle! We were starting to feel quite under the weather so to speak (Mind my pun) As we arrived at the... More

The service was brilliant, the rooms were lovley and was in a great destination for the young ones to go to the strip. Me and my friend Will (16) had a great time chilling round the pool and been so close to the beach what was only a couple of minutes away with fantastic water sports eg, jet skiing, pedalos... More

After reading the bad reviews for this hotel, we were dreading going however it was nothing like the reviews! There were 5 of us and both rooms were modernised and more than what we had paid for. The location is perfect, 5 min walk to the beach. It is 2 minutes around the corner from the strip so it wasn't... More

We had a week here in September. Very basic room! but is was clean. Towels and sheets, tho not new were clean and did not see any ants or cockroaches. Pool was lovely and water was clean. For what we paid we thought is was worth it. Yes the equipment for catering was VERY basic, but why would you want... More

We spent 1 week here in mid-Sept 2014 and found the accommodation to be adequate and definitely fit for purpose. We only really needed the apartment to sleep and wash in, as most of the time was spent on the beach or sightseeing. Room brushed/mopped each morning, bin emptied, towels changed twice, bed sheets changed once. Our apartment was one... More

Stayed here second week of September and would have no hesitation of staying here again if we ever came back to Malia (although that's unlikely as we don't normally go to the same place twice!) Arrived early hours of the morning and were the last to be booked in which unfortunately meant that we got a small ground floor room... More

Great location, on Almyrolakou, 2 mins walk to beach, 15 mins thru strip to lovely old town, with great restaurants, old folk sitting out in evening ,'kalispera' to all, on edge of coastal development, so easy to walk away from shops etc to market gardens and quieter beaches- excellent!

I have just come back from a week in Stelios Gardens and loved it. Yes there is no air con but do you know what you get used to it. We hired a fan and it was fine. It actually saves getting cold in the room then coming into the heat and melting. You are the same temperature all the... More
