They go above and beyond for everyone and made yet again another holiday here amazing . Be back again next year . Rooms are spotlessly clean and very modern . You will not regret your stay here .

An absolute gem of a place. We stayed here from the 13th to the 20th September and it was fairly quiet which was nice for us. Very relaxing and run by a really lovely family who like to make sure you have a good time and that everything is perfect. You must try their cocktails they are amazing 🍹🍹🍹 The Kristalli is absolutely immaculate, both inside rooms, reception etc and also the pool area and bar. I could not find fault and I am OCD 🙈 The apartments are far enough away from the town where all of the night life and noise happens but close enough to walk in about 5 mins. The old town has some amazing restraunts and lovely to stroll around in the evening We hired a quad bike and went off to visit other areas and I have to say it is well worth doing this. We would absolutely stay here again. Thank you all for making our stay a memorable one. Yvonne & Jules

I go to the Kristali every year. They are very friendly as they are a family business Every time l go l find they can't do enough for you. With the corona virus hopefully l will be able to go at the end of September and meet friends and family once more. Its like returning to see my Crete family. I recommend this to especially the older generation as its at the quiet end of Malia where l stay

I will start with the only negative. You need to pay extra for the air con remote and safe key 70 euros for the week. Everything else top drawer. All the staff are friendly the rooms are a decent size. Very clean, food is good, shower exceptional. Pools are a decent size and the sun stays in the pool area all day. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and despite the hill from town to apartment which seemed to get steeper everyday nah the raki made it missions 😏 it's set in the old town which had some lovely family run restaurants set just off the roads where we got lost the first 2 days but found these little gems. Overall you won't be disappointed if you choose to stay at kristalli.

Very friendly family run, immaculate complex in a perfect location for a quiet holiday that's still within walking distance to beach, the strip and perfect for walking around Malia old town to check out the Tavernas. I travelled alone and felt 100% safe in Malia and warmly welcomed at this hotel by Katrina and Mike, who escorted me to my room late at night. All of the staff are hardworking, helpful and cheerful. Mischievous George engaging with all guests and Komisa and Pro (Cocktail king) delivering service with a smile, all want their guests to have a nice time. Thank you to all of the Kristalli team for a very pleasant holiday. Thankyou for the free wine on arrival and their homemade marmalade as a leaving gift on checkout, I will stay here again after a most pleasant stay :) xx
