Proudly local, fully entrenched in its surroundings and the bearer of a finely crafted Greek identity, Cretan Malia Park presents a hideaway in every sense. Enveloped by an idyllic locale that is rooted in an ancient history, the sprawling property is inextricably linked to the island of Crete. From its boundless slow-paced aura, carefully aligned with the tempo of the island, to an authentically Cretan food and beverage concept, Cretan Malia Park is a microcosm of the island on which is resides — an accurate and detailed snapshot of Crete, where visitors are offered ample opportunity to explore, experience and live.

The most perfect holiday in paradise! This was our second trip to the Cretan Malia and we loved every second. If you’re after bells, whistles and gimmicks this is not the place for you. The resort is beautiful, laid back, with lovely attention to detail. Kick off your shoes and head to the beach shack over a cocktail, chill at the lagoon pool with the new addition of the delicious ‘Crush’ ice cream parlour and creperie or let the kids play with new friends in the main pool while lounging on a comfy day bed listening to chilled out tunes in the background. Excellent food, fabulous buffet for breakfast and Almyra is perfection for those long leisurely dinners watching the sunset from your table. We will be back next year! Thank you Chronis and your team, and special thanks to the kids club which our 5 year old asked to go to every day! (Unheard of!)

We stayed 6 nights in this paradise. The first impression was that is wasn't what we expected. However, with the days we changed our minds and fell in love with this place. The cons: - The signature rooms are ok. Clean, minimalistic and with the essentials. However, for 350€ per night they could be a bit more exclusive. - We could hear all the noise from the outside. - The shower was a bit tinny. Pros: - The staff here is from another world. Giorgios from the Almyra’s restaurant was the kindest person we have ever met. Kind, polite, and very professional. The girl on the Crush was also very kind and friendly. And the men on the beach were always there to help and wish us a good day. - The beach is perfect for having fun with the waves and enjoy an excellent sunbathing day. - If you like Italian food, you will love Almyra’s. - The perfect place for families with kids. - Great ice creams. - The best place to Enjoy and relax. - The perfect place to enjoy the sunrise.

We enjoyed our week-long stay in May very much at this hotel. As a family with a baby we didn't even leave the resort for the whole time. The selection of restaurants, bars and a lovely sea-view room and a nice surrounding garden provided us with enough amusement and recreation at the same time. Staff was very friendly everywhere, room was very clean everyday and selection and quality of food at the buffet breakfast and dinners was beyond spectacular. Plus, very strict for the hygiene & Covid criteria, so we felt very safe there. This hotel is definitely a place to go.

It was absolutely amazing! The hotel is just perfect and the beach is also very nice and beautiful. We enjoyed such a nice service. As in the restaurants, as well as at the reception. At the pool-bar we have met Thanos, he was very polite and we could feel that his knowledge was very big. He was also able to speak german and he recommended us the best drinks we ever had. A top service over all, with him as a nice topping. Absolute recommendable! Thanks for everything Thanos and co. This was our best Holidays so far.
