I was pretty anxious/nervous going on my first holiday alone but needn't have been. Everyone was so welcoming and friendly and the Hotel was perfect. It was clean and had everything you could want. The Hotel Owner Vassilis and all the staff, Donna, Andreas, Panos were all so nice and welcoming. It was so easy to jump on a local... More

The food is lovely, and the hotel and grounds are amazing. You will meet a mixture of new friends from across the... More

The Mistral Hotel : a beautiful hotel set back from the road and just next to a petrol station. So strictly speaking location not wonderful but against that, its decor is stylish, cool, understated and the two pools are from your dreams.I particularly liked the changing colurs of the water at night. Very pretty. Food quality is variable but plentiful,... More

I stayed at the Mistral for the first time last month and thoroughly enjoyed my experience. Donna, Vassillis, and Adonis go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. The hotel is very nice and well maintained. It is small (only 32 rooms), which gives it a very intimate feel. I alternated my days going on excursions that Donna... More

Just home from my first visit to The Mistral. It had been recommended to me by 3 different people on several occasions & as I wanted to visit Crete, I thought I'd see what the fuss was all about. In my experience of Greece, 5 star usually means 3 star, but not on this occasion. The rooms are palatial in... More

Venturing on my first solo holiday was not easy but I was reassured immediately on arrival by the welcome from the owners/hosts and a few guests who were around. And that evening one or two guests came up to talk to me and tell me about their first experiences. Now, how good is that! By next morning I felt I'd... More

If you want to get to know Crete, the Mistral Hotel is a great way to start exploring the island. The hotel is locally owned and managed by a Greek family. Not only do they take a special interest in their guests, but they also take great pride in using organic food from their own garden to cook traditional Cretan... More

My first visit to the Mistral hotel in Maleme was 13 years ago, I returned from my last visit a few days ago. It really is like a home from home, meeting up with old friends and meeting lots of new people who become friends. I always ask for a room at the front of the hotel, but I have... More
