The Mistral is the perfect destination for the single traveller. Every guest is made to feel welcome from the moment you arrive. You will meet like minded single travellers of all ages and backgrounds and make many lifelong friendships. The food is excellent and the experience of all guests eating together at 8pm is a perfect way to spend fun... More

Well I've finally managed to find the time to write about my experience at the Mistral. I have to say I was absolutely terrified about travelling on my own. I turned up at the airport with lots of other holiday makers who where mainly in couples/families and felt really quite apprehensive. To this day I do not know why I... More

I'm an independent kind of traveler and booked this reservation with a little trepidation, not sure if I would enjoy something rather structured and catering to singles, but I'm so glad I did. Everything was outstanding. I met wonderful people and had so much fun. The dining experiences were great, both at the hotel and around the area with groups.... More

Although the weather was not very good for the first few days of my two week stay, the company of my fellow guests, some of whom I had met before and some not, made for another wonderful memorable holiday. Perhaps, because of the weather, we quickly bonded together and had a great time. You can go on the planned excursions... More

This place is a unique haven from the stresses of everyday life, and I am so glad to have found it. The holiday really begins from the point that you are picked up at the airport by any one of the Mistral's drivers, and that sets the theme of the personal service that you can expect from then on. I... More

Greece is amazing and Mistral is the best place to come to as a solo person that far exceeded any expectations. The room was beautiful, the staff and owners are the most gracious and helpful. The food was out of this world and the trips, walking the gorges etc...was inspirational to my very soul. Greece is my favorite place and... More

This was my fourth visit to the Mistral and the welcome, room, food, bar was as good as ever. It's like going to visit family as I always feel part of the Mistral clan. As is normal in any group setting, there are people who you click with more than others. Vive la difference. This time there were almost equal... More

Just left this morning after an amazing week. The property is beautiful and although it's a bit off the beaten path I liked that aspect-not overrun with tourists! It's 2 minutes from the bus stop so you can get in to Chania with no hassle. Three minute walk to a lovely beach. I can't say enough about how warm and... More

I have just returned from my 6th visit to this unique haven for single people of all ages. The facilities are first class and the owners, Vassilis and Adonis Gialamarakis, along with a professional caring staff, ensure that all the guests enjoy their warm Cretan hospitality. The hotel attracts a wide range of interesting people, aged between 30 and 80... More

Just two weeks ago, I came back from another immensely enjoyable fortnight's stay in this amazing and quite unique boutique hotel in Maleme. It was my eighth visit, and that probably tells you enough in itself. But what is it that keeps me going back, you may ask? Well it's unlike any other place I have ever been to, and... More
