“Made me want to return so badly! Class.”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

Everything was top drawer, loved it all. Made the most of the food, and mainly the drinks. All totally worth the value. Sea is a small skip away, very worth a dip everyday. The pool is average size, perfect for a cool down to rub the hangover off. Supermarket across the street, that was everything you need. Loved the experience, and definitely fancy returning next year if all the other lads are keen. Big tip though, careful in the glass showers (that's if your apartment has one, or if you fancy comparing as many people's showers as you possibly can) big thanks to Nikos and his workers, great people and very friendly. Top place, top time.

The family that ran the hotel were all very friendly and helpful.

Nikos the owner was very accommodating and friendly.

Location was very important for us and this place was a minute walk from the strip and a very short walk to the beach.

The rooms were cleaned every other day and drinks in the restaurant were very cheap.

There was a supermarket just next door which always comes in useful.

Were I to return to Malia I would most definitely stay here again.

Thank you to Nikos and your family for making our stay in Malia amazing

I was part of a group of 7 guys who had come to Malia for our first lads holiday and Kastro Beach Apartments was the perfect location for us! 2 minutes from the beach in one direction, 2 minutes from the strip in the other direction so you are far enough from the noise without being so far that it's a trek for a good night out! Nicos and his team were also brilliant - nothing was too much and they were always very pleasant and friendly (as indeed were all the people of Malia!) - even going as far as to move our two rooms closer together with hours notice! Would definitely consider staying at Kastro again!

I have just returned back from a week in Malia staying at the Kastro Beach Apartments as part of a lads holiday, and I will happily recommend the Kastro to anyone. We were welcomed with open arms, all members of staff were so friendly and incredibly helpful, our rooms were incredibly spacious and the beds comfy also. There was never any competition for sun loungers around the poolside which was greatly appreciated, and the attached bar Charlie's was amazing value for money and also offered a large variety on its menu. The apartments are bang in the middle between the beach and the strip making for perfect walking distance to both yet it wasn't too loud in the evenings also. The whole experience was worth every penny and I would definitely return again next year.

Usually I wouldn't comment on things like these but kastro apartments honestly made my holiday the best it could've been, never been on one single transport when I was there because the location was a 30 second walk to everywhere. The family side of the apartments made it a lot more homely and made a better atmosphere about the place!

I stayed at kastro beach apartments for a week at the start of june with 7 other lads, best holiday we've ever had! From getting off the coach nicos, his family and all the staff were unbelievably kind and helpful! We spent every night in Charlies bar before going out on the strip due to the friendly staff and cheap prices! And then it only took a few minutes walk before you were in the middle of the strip and amongst the busy bars and clubs.
The rooms were clean and had everything we needed. Although the beach was only a 1 minute walk from the hotel we spent everyday either around the swimming pool or in the bar area playing pool where there was always music or sport on!
We will definitely be coming back soon!
