As our coach transfer pulled up for the umpteenth time, only a few holiday going groups remaining on board, the driver called out 'diasselo' and fearing an inbetweeners like welcome, a deep seated expression of anxiety swept over every face in the group as we prepared ourselves for the worst. Exiting the coach, we were met with a deadly silence, standing on a dirt track to nowhere and a million miles away from the pandemonium of the famous Malia strip. However, any lingering worries dissipated following a warm welcome from the boss, Panos. From the outset, he was helpful and informative, advising us on things to avoid and be aware of, but equally without forcing us to conform to his 'code of conduct' - contrary to some of the other reviews. He proved to be a light hearted host throughout our stay, and this was despite a few misdemeanours on our behalf - even an incident involving a desperate search for an early morning packet of crisps, setting the apartment alarms off, was met with jokes, laughter and a polite plea of going to bed. The further the week progressed, the further we warmed to Panos and Diasselo. Small touches, from the communal midnight complementary shots, to the leniency of the swimming pool hours (we routinely exceeded the 8pm curfew), proved just how accommodating a venue Diasselo was. Perfect proximity to the beaches, restaurants, bars and the strip only reinforced how these apartments were a great choice and despite taking an initial gamble based on some previous reviews, demonstrated why you would be stupid not to choose this location. Great value for money, Great hospitality, Great holiday.
