I travelled with a group numbering 18 lads, between the ages of 18-20, and we stayed from the 9th-20th of July. We received a cold and indifferent welcome from the hotel owners Ingrid and George, which immediately made us feel unwanted in what was to be our home for the next ten days. However, Ingrid showed herself to be quite... More

Where do I start with this place? It could be making a small fortune if owners George and Ingrid pulled the finger out, well mainly George. It is a family run business situated a mere 5 minute walk from the Malia strip which on arrival looked perfect for us.The owners kept saying that they wanted to keep its family hotel... More

Apartments are located in the quiet part of the old town of Malia but Malia is small and everything is well within walking distance.

My partner and I have just returned home from a weeks stay in the Melissa Apartments. We were very happy with our visit, the rooms were all large and airy, with two balconies overlooking a neighbouring vacant lot (room 201). We requested a pool and mountain view through Facebook shortly after booking and they confirmed that they had already allocated... More

We have been visiting Melissa for many, many years and absolutely love it! Ingrid, Yiorgos, Cristina and Eleni make a perfect team for anyone staying there - rooms are always immaculate, bar food is always freshly cooked to order, and it is a faultless holiday destination. Wonderful views of the mountains from the pool area, a well-stocked bar, and a... More
