This was my first experience of a solo holiday, but I didn't need to be anxious. From my very first enquiries, Donna and the rest of the staff were helpful, professional and really did make you feel like part of the family. The facilities are great, the food plentiful and delicious (they even happily catered for my special dietary requirements)... More

Just returned from another fantastic holiday at the Mistral. This was my 11th visit to the Mistral. "My home from home in Crete". I must commend the staff for all their hard work, both over the winter period updating an already fabulous hotel, the new spa and new bedrooms are lovely. and also for all their work and help while...

As a first experience of a solo holiday, I couldn't have been more impressed. As soon as I entered the Mistral, I knew immediately by their easy check in and welcome process (attentive and personal) that this was the place to feel "at home". Room 101 (yes, I know) was luxurious and inviting with all of the practical items that... More

The hotel is very nice, so are the rooms. What really makes the difference though is their people and their (very adequate) proposal to today's society: make a single traveller feel part of a family. Not dating is the purpose but just share the wonderful daily trips they offer, the excellent Cretan cuisine, pool & sunbathing, cocktails, dancing and music... More

Spotlessly clean, excellent food and great fun for the single traveller. This year was my fourteenth consecutive visit to the Mistral and thanks to the management and staffs meticulous attention to detail the hotel gets better and better every year. I am what can only be described as one very satisfied customer so much so my room is already booked... More

Many previous reviews talk about how super the family are and how passionate they are about their hotel , the Cretan food, wine and their... More

This is a lovely hotel and the food is excellent but i can't for the life of me work out why people are raving about it. Yes the rooms r lovely and the food great but when i was there in May there was no atmosphere.The hotel is on a main road so once outside there was no holiday feeling.... More

Thank you for your feed back. All views are welcome and help us all to make our way forward to better future. We have to address though that in our opinion the comment on the expensive trips is not justified. The “trip on the beach” is an exclusive to the Mistral guests 8 hour trip, to the best beach on...

This is a very well maintained and run family hotel specialising in meeting the needs for the discerning single traveller. The rooms are of variable size but each is very well appointed and comfortable with a private balcony overlooking either of the two pools, some with a sea facing (northerly) aspect. Air conditioning is available for a modest surcharge and... More

I can't speak highly enough of The Mistral, from my arrival to leaving ten nights later I was made to feel so welcome, all the staff know your name and go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. Rooms are excellent , the food was plentiful and the whole ambience was conducive to a very pleasant stay. Will... More

I stayed at the Mistral a couple of weeks ago - it was my first time in Crete and at this hotel. Everyone there was very welcoming. The hotel is lovely. 2 lovely pools, a fun bar and good accommodations. The food (and the wine!) are quite delicious. The owners make tremendous efforts to make everyone feel like part of... More
