This place is owned by truly despicable human beings. They show an absolute disregard for any kind of customer service. One of the owners, Ingrid bursts into your room without knocking and shouts at you for extremely petty reasons such as leaving towels on the floor. She is permanently uptight and does not let you splash in the pool -... More

Once again we had a lovely, relaxing time in Malia and again were looked after so well by Giorgos and Ingrid, Christina and Elena. Nothing is too much trouble for them. Want to know where to visit? How to get there? When to go? No problem. Looking forward to next year!

Returning to Malia after many years I knew I'd prefer the Old Town's charm and peace away from the liveliness of Downtown Malia. Finding Melissa was a dream, just moments away from all of the Old Town Taverna's for fabulous food and hospitality which was reciprocated in the warm welcome we received from Ingrid and her husband George. We were... More

On paper this hotel is perfect for a holiday away with mates, letting your hair down after exam stress etc. Upon arrival the owners welcomed us friendly enough, however there was a 'mix-up' with the rooms meaning that 13 of us had to share 3 rooms for the first 2 nights rather than 4, for which we were compensated with...

When arriving after an overnight ferry from Athens, the owner organised for us to be able to check into our room earlier. All the staff were extremely helpful and even drove us to the local tourist attraction as it was a hot day and a long walk. Location and facilities are also great. Definitely recommend you stay here if possible.

Having just finished my stay at Melissa Apartments I can only say I had a mostly mixed experience. The hotel was positioned in a great location, within walking distance to the strip but far away enough to ensure a quiet nights sleep. The rooms were of a high quality, comfortable beds and there was friendly pool-bar staff (the woman, I'm... More

I visited this hotel in July 2014 with a group of my friends. The hotel overall is quite nice and in a good location with very nice pool area facilities and the English woman on the bar in the day is very friendly and pleasant and I couldn't vault her. The food is also of a good standard and is... More

Entering my 8th night here at Melissa Apartments and the location is very good, close enough to the strip to walk to but far enough away to not be able to hear all of the music and shouting. My main problem with this place is certainly the two owners (their children and the woman who works the bar are very... More

Stayed at Melissa Apartment in June 2014 and couldn't have selected a better hotel. We arrived after 12 in the evening and the hotel owner and security guard were there to greet us. They showed us to our rooms and explained about their hotel policies (all completely reasonable) and we're completely welcoming and very friendly. They made us feel right... More

I've been coming to the Melissa since 1987 and the welcome received from this lovely family has never changed. Nothing is ever too much trouble. George, Ingrid their children and Christina couldn't be more helpful. The apartments are clean, well equipped and spacious. The pool area is spotless and the breakfasts and frappe's are the best in Crete. I will... More
