June 2013 we stayed at Socrates for 17 days and loved every minute of it.
The owners (Eva, George and their family) make you feel very welcome and at home. George was waiting for us at the airport and also made sure we where there in time for our return flight. And Eva creates a relaxed, easy going atmosphere while helping you with everything and running the hotel very efficiently behind the scenes. (Important detail: we've never been in apartments as clean as these.)
The hotel, garden and pool area are in real life exactly like the beautiful photo's you can see on the internet. At the poolside, the comfortable wide loungers, the relaxing music, good food and drinks, make you feel you're in in paradise. (Tip: start your day with a delicious 'super energy breakfast')
The location of Socrates is perfect. You can walk to the centre of Malia or Stalida but it is just far enough away to enjoy very quite days at the pool and undisturbed nights.
The best beach of Malia is just a few minutes walk away. (Tip: When you rent your beach loungers at Windmill, you can use their swimming pool, showers and toilets as well).
Ideal for a relaxing holiday on Crete!More
