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

Just returned from yet another brilliant two weeks at the Melissa after going there for the last 20 years or so..At this time of year, it's the ideal place to relax and the hospitality is second to none. It's really easy to see why people return year after year. Look no further, Melissa is in a really good location, just... More

We've been staying at Melissa for many years, now feel 'part of the family' - such friendly, welcoming people, such a lovely, quiet place with super apartments, close to important amenities such as really good tavernas and supermarkets. Just cannot be beaten - we wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else on Crete 'cos getting around is so easy with the... More

Visited Malia with 3 other friends in 2012 and this hotel really made our trip that we even went back to the hotel for lunch when revisiting Malia in 2013 even though we couldn't book the hotel again. We went back just to eat lunch and see Ingrid, George and Christina. Staff are extremely friendly and helpful and the service... More
