Kastro Beach Apartments
Ranked #1 of 91 Hotels in Malia
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 12 September 2013

On our arrival at Kastro we were greeted at the entrance of Charlie's bar by Nikos, the owner, who immediately gave us a friendly welcome, drinks and explained everything we needed to know about the apartments, the location, the strip and things to keep an eye out for such as thieves and quad bikes around the area. It was clear him and his family and staff were going to look after us. Everybody was so friendly and gave excellent service, it really made our holiday.
Kastro is in a perfect location opposite the beach and down the road from the main strip. Charlie's bar was our regular pre drinking place and we enjoyed the Friday night BBQ the staff arranged, which included fun drinking games later on. Our apartments were lovely, nicely furnished with basic 3 beds and a fridge, hob, sink, toaster, pans, kettle cutlery etc, the maids cleaned to the best of their ability as we left ours in such a state! Air con and safe can be paid for but well worth it €50 a week for both. The pool area was fab with Greg coming round taking food or drinks orders constantly. We went to Water city waterpark and on the malia booze cruise which i would highly reccommend as they were both brilliant! Overall we had an absolutely fantastic time at kastro, we felt looked after and welcomed at all times, they all went one step above to make our holiday the best ever!

We had such a great week staying at Kastro, it's perfectly situated next to the beach and right by the strip. Nikos and the rest of the staff at Charlie's bar really made the holiday for us, they were so friendly and gave us free shots before we went out every night. The atmosphere was brilliant, the drinks were great and the food was cheap but nice. I would really recommend Kastro for any young people on a girls/lads' holiday in Malia, we had the best time.

Had a brilliant time at this hotel! The room was really nice and was cleaned regularly. It was in a great location too, close to the beach and to the strip but not so you can hear all the noise. Charlies Bar was ace Nikos and the staff we so nice and it had a really good atmosphere, great for pre drinks! The food was really good too! Would definitely recommend anyone to stay here.

I had an absolutely amazing week, the staff are so caring and so much fun. We always drank at the bar before going out and had the best times The apartments are in a great location, about a 2 minute walk to the strip and less than a minute away from the beach, the rooms are very simple but clean. I would strongly recommend staying here!

Had the best time at Kastro. The staff are so friendly and made us feel so welcome. As soon as we got off the coach we were greeted by Nikos who gave us our free welcome cocktails. By the end of the week we had made so many friends and were so sad to leave.

Charlie's bar attached to the hotel is the funnest way to start off a night. Some nights we didn't leave for the strip until 2/3ish because we were having so much fun drinking with Nikos, the staff and everyone.

Hotel is in an ideal location, literally opposite the beach and a minute from the strip.

Pool is nice, good amount of sunbeds and speakers to plug your music into.

Food is good too, we had lots of tasty fry-ups, toasties and sandwiches.

Also if you like dogs you'll love this hotel!!! Ari and Nelly are the friendliest dogs and while we were on the strip we spotted Ari partying several times. He even made it to Petrinos the 24hour bar.

Would definitely come back! Thank you Nikos, Andy, Sophie and everyone for a brill holiday

First of all we arrived at 5 in the morning, yet all of the bar staff was up to greet us, being very welcoming and showing us to our rooms. The rooms were great, they had everything you needed; great shower, nice beds, very clean and aircon. The pool was great, with a nice little bar by it, with a great barman, who was always a great laugh. The main bar (Charlie's bar) was also amazing, we stayed there every night, before we went properly out, they always organised great evenings and the staff always were a great laugh. Nikos the owner, was he best, always see how we were doing and would even put up with a group of 9 boys.

All in all, I didn't want to leave and I would definitely go back
