Myself and my three friends stayed in the Melissa Apartments from the 12th - 19th July. We stayed in a one bedroom apartment which was very spacious for what we needed for the week and was very clean. The only problem with the room, which other reviews have mentioned, is the bathroom instantly becomes a wet room once one person... More

Arrived home after a lovely stay at Melissa Apartments. On arrival we were greeted by Ingrid the owner and made to feel very welcome. All the staff remembered our names, giving a truly personal feel to our stay. The whole place was spotlessly clean and nothing was too much trouble. The kitchen although basic was functional for what we needed,... More

They say a holiday is a stressful time organizing etc but when you arrive at Melissa Apartments you realise why you save your money. This is without doubt one of the most relaxing, clean, comfortable and friendly places we have ever been. A holiday is what you make it but so much better when all the boxes are ticked. Thank...

Just returned from a brilliant 12 day holiday at Melissa. We are family/friends with 3 children aged 9, 10 and 11 and these apartments were perfect. Just enough away from the "strip" which had no noise impact whatsoever. Based in the old part of Malia, there are loads of restaurants to choose from and is ideally located. It is quite... More

I have reviewed many hotels and restaurants from all over the world, so I hope when people read this review they will realise that I know a little about hospitality, the location of these apartments are extremely well placed, in the beautiful Malia old town, the owners George & Ingrid made us feel like family from the first moment we...

Located in the heart of the Old Town, Melissa Apartments are owned and run by the lovely Ingrid and George with daughter Anna behind the bar. Although ideally located for the fantastic taverna's in the old town George cooked a lovely bbq for all of the guests last night with everyone enjoying a few drinks around the pool. This is... More

We have just returned from a girls holiday in Malia where we stayed at Melissa Apartments. From the outset Ingrid was very welcoming and we were escorted to our rooms straight away upon arrival. Ingrid went through the rules for the apartments which were fair if they are wanting to keep it a 'family' atmosphere, however we did notice that... More

Myself and friends from college stayed in Melissa apartments for almost 2 weeks in July. On arrival we felt immediately intimidated by the 2 owners who stood on their porch and lectured us on what we're not allowed do like a Principal to school children. First impressions last and it was really not a good one they gave. In fairness... More

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
