We arrived very late to find complimentary fresh sandwiches, fruit and a bottle of wine in our room. Nothing was too much trouble for any member of staff who were helpful at all times. We enjoyed the food which was of high quality and plenty of it. (Also plenty of choice) I would especially recommend dining in the a la... More

I recently returned from the Meli Palace with my husband and 4 year old son. On arrival, we were given a warm welcome by the reception staff and first impressions were really good. We booked a family room and my son was over the moon with the bunk bed and being able to sleep on the top bunk! The room... More

We were looking for somewhere to relax for a week and this came up as a deal. The hotel is delightful, well designed and spotlessly clean. The front of house staff were always friendly and helpful, and nothing was too much trouble for them. The restaurant and bar staff couldn't have been more welcoming - their facility with languages (English,... More

Not our usual type of holiday (usually energetic or fans of smaller, chic hotels), but we just wanted to relax for a week and that's just what we got here. Service and food stood out - we arrived at midnight and they greeted us with a plate of food as they knew we'd be hungry travellers and when we left... More

This hotel has a great location with a private bay in front and mountain behind, just down the road from the ancient Minoan Palace of Malia. Very friendly staff, with especial credit to Maria, the Reception Manager, who went out of her way to be helpful and satisfy requests. The buffet food is very good quality and a great range... More
