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 enjoyed my third visit and return in 12 weeks, that says it all. Wonderful staff, great meals, I have to have a special menu and I am totally catered for. Rooms cleaned to a high standard and toiletries are provided, free wine at supper and good music. Free wifi throughout the hotel. Trips organised by the hotel. I went... 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

My second visit to the Mistral. I was really happy to see the standards were still excellent and the staff/family couldn't do enough to help. Brilliant place to go on a singles holiday and meeting lots of new friends. Food is very good along with free wine with evening meal ! Entertainment was good - music/dancing/greek nights/water aerobics.

This was my second visit to this lovely place. Was it possible that it could be even better than my first visit...quite simply, yes!! I haven't ever returned to a holiday destination before but I couldn't have made a better decision. I booked for ten days this year which was perfect. I had a deluxe room again at the back... More

This was my second visit and I would not hesitate to return. Room was great, food was lovely and the service from all staff members and owners was excellent. An excellent holiday for the independent traveller, I felt safe and cared for at all times.

Every need is catered for - I can't recommend Mistrals highly enough- a very personal service throughout my stay. Food excellent - rooms very comfortable - service excellent. No hesitation in going back.
