We have just returned from a weeks holiday at Stelios Gardens. It was a wonderful break. We were so impressed by the location, the friendliness of the staff and the wonderful fresh produce grown on site and used in the food from the menu. The 'gardens' part refers to the garden where they grow fresh fruit and veg. Although there... More

Great for a girls holiday in Malia.. When we first arrived at Stelios Gardens we were delighted with the location. It is situated approximately two minutes from the strip and restaurants, the supermarket is just at the top of the road on the corner (30 seconds away) and the beach (used for events such a malia live and the paint...

The location is everything! 30 seconds from the strip, 1 minute from the beach and close to many food and alcohol shops. The pool and bar area is so nice- plenty of sun loungers and beds. Rooms are what you need but we did have problems with lights and water not always working properly. Overall, perfect hotel for groups going... More

On arrival we were greeted by the hotel owner, straight away we could tell she wasn't the pleasantest of people but shrugged it off thinking we wouldn't really cross her path. First thing on checking in, we were offered air conditioning, safe box & wifi which all came at an extremely hefty price. We chose not to have these facilities.... More

I would just like to respond to your very negative review of my hotel as I feel that many of your points are unwarranted, air-conditioning safes and wi-fi are all facilities that are available for our guests if required and are not included in the holiday price, this is clearly stated in your holiday brochure for you to consider before...
