My review is long-overdue....I stayed at the Mistral end of Sept for 2 weeks and though had intended on writing a review immediately upon my return, as per usual, got busy back at work and the time has just slipped away! I'm a "repeat" guest; it was my 4th visit and whilst I love the Mistral experience, I can understand... More

This was my first visit to the Mistral Hotel and my first solo holiday since my younger son left the nest this summer. I needn't have worried: everyone at the Mistral was so welcoming and you immediately felt part of one big, happy family. Many of the guests had been before, so there was usually someone to point you in... More

An additional private excursion to the Botanical Gardens was organised when a few guests expressed an interest. This is the sort of service that sets the Mistral apart. This is a hotel for the independent traveller, not a dating agency, though you are sure to meet interesting people.

Just returned from a photography course run by the Mistral and would thoroughly recommend this to other budding photographers. It was a great way to see some of the island, meet new people and learn a new skill. Harvey ran the course with patience and humour and as most meals and all transport were included it was great value. The... More

This was my second holiday at the Mistral. This time I booked the photography course. Harvey was a great teacher- he was patient with a sense of humour. We went to wonderful places such as the top of Sumaria gorge to take photos. Lovely lunches out on these trips and very good value. The hotel is spotless and staff excellent.... More

Just returned from my first weeks ever travelling solo. I was a little apprehensive...but I had no need to be. The Hotel has a wonderful ambience.....friendly, safe, welcoming and nurturing. I say nurturing because my circumstances dictated that I need to feel comfortable and secure, which I did. All the staff go out of their way to make everyone welcome... More

Yet again my visit to the Mistral, was really enjoyable. The accommodation was again faultless, all the staff from the reception, kitchen and cleaners were very helpful. Along with the themed weeks, organised trips the staff are also willing to take a group to a private trips out, for me it was to the Botanical gardens. The food was of... More

Just returned from two weeks at the Mistral. Second time and was really enjoyable. Was meeting a friend I had made in June for a week and I had worried about my second week on my own. Instead, I made a new lot of friends and had a fabulous second week and went away with four new friends from that... More

Much has been written about the Mistral suffice to say that it offers a quite unique experience. I have just returned from my first holiday in Maleme and it certainly will not be my last. If you are an independent traveller wishing to meet like minded people you will not be disappointed. With great food, friendly staff and wonderful clients... More
