I read some very good comments about this place on this site and as this was suggested by Easyjet we decided to resides there. I must say that we were really well received, the staff was really friendly with us, everything was clean and lovely. I would definitely recommend anyone to go there with his family :-)

My mum & dad have just returned from here and they had a great stay at the Villa mare monte, the staff were all exceptional making the holiday extra special as it was their silver wedding anniversary Koula provided champagne at the weekly bbq. The setting was perfect and in a quiet location within a short walk to Malia. The hotel itself was small and every guest was made to feel welcome & enjoy the peaceful surroundings. We will be booking our 2013 holiday to Villa mare monte very soon! Andrew & Helen Harrison.

Me and my fiance have just returned from our holiday and have to say it was the most relaxing and awesome holiday we have both had. The location of the appartments is up in the peaceful mountains so you can enjoy some pretty awesome views from the pool during the day. It is not far walk from either Old Town or lively Malia (about 10 mins to each) and about 15 mins walk to beach. The staff are what made our holiday though Koula, Mandy, Sharon and the team are just amazing and really make you feel like you are part of the family. The hotel has a nice relaxed, feel good atmosphere about and it is all down to the friendly staff. Me and my fiance got engaged whilst out here and Koula even arranged us to see one of her family friends who is a jeweller and we bought our ring in Crete. It truly was an amazing holiday and will definately be coming back in the near future.

If you want the choice of two busy resorts and been in the middle of wonderful natural surrounding Mare monte is the place for you.
The busy resorts of Malia and Stalis are just a 10-15 min. walk away but the hotel is set in an idylic mountainous area with fabulous sea views.
A fabulous pool area adds to these excellent apartments, book the sea view for a really great view from the balcony. The snack bar is well stocked and the excellent staff make sure that every need is catered for. I recommend booking early as this place is well sort after with a lot of repeat guests of all nationalities. My partner and I had a wonderful week here and we will be returning.
Well done Mare monte team led by Koulla their manager they really have got everything right.

Room Tip: the ground floor is great for access and they are all with garden seaview

A quiet family run hotel from which we have recently returned having spent an enjoyable two weeks. It is located about 1km outside of Malia old town up on the hillside overlooking the bay. The owners and staff are friendly and efficient and seem genuinely interested in ensuring that your stay is enjoyable. The rooms are regularly cleaned and serviced with fresh towels etc. and the furnishings whilst simple are quite adequate and typical of what you might expect. From the balcony we had a delightful view of the bay and of the town below. Mountain goats can sometimes be seen on the hillside behind the hotel.
We went on a self catering basis but breakfasts and meals through the day and evening were available and were indeed welcome when we arrived late and did not feel like venturing out.
The shower in our apartment was quite cramped, but apparently they have a programme to upgrade the bathrooms over a period of time. There were a number of return guests staying when we were there which I think speaks for itself. The complex also has a bar and a decent size pool

Room Tip: Ask for a room on 1st floor with sea view

A family run hotel about 10 minute walk from the main nightlife. Nestled in the mountains. Which is great as you have an escape from the nightlife.When you first walk through the doors you a greated with beautiful gardens a great pool and bar area for guests. The rooms are well with all the essentials and kept extreamly clean, fresh towels every day!! but what really makes this a really great hotel is the amazing staff! You feel like you are part of the family here. I would highly recommend this hotel to any one that wants to visit malia. I will be returning again
