Reviewed 13 October 2013

This is now the 4th time John and I have stayed at Kristalli, This is a family run hotel and they really cannot do enough for you. We stayed in a Deluxe apartment which is spacious with lots of room the bathrooms are second to none with good showers. Our apartment had 2 balconies looking out to the pool area which is well kept. The pool bar is open for breakfasts, snacks and dinner and the food is of the highest quality. The hotel is in the old town and is in walking distance of so many good restaurants if you do decide to go out to eat. One of the plus points for us is that there are always clean towels in your room, the rooms are kept spotlessly clean. We would never consider staying anywhere else in Malia, and have already booked to go back in May 2014

Room Tip: All rooms are spacious but go onto web site and you get a really good view of the rooms

Myself and 8 of my friends (girls) stayed here during the month of July. I cannot fault this hotel in any way.

- good security
- good food
- very clean
- extremely friendly and helpful staff
- lovely pool

It's not so far from the strip that it's a long walk, literally about 8 minutes, however you can't hear the noise of an evening. Just want to thank Nikos, Yannis, George and family for our unforgettable stay at Kristalli. Were thinking about booking a few days on the end of our holiday in 2014!

Just returned from another lovely 2 week stay here. As usual the family were very welcoming, we had lovely food, drinks and spotless accommodation. Wouldn't stay anywhere else in Malia. The short walk into the old town and all the local shops and tavernas is such a plus. If you want any help planning a trip just ask the family.there are lovely beaches about 20 mins pleasant walk away and lots of open country roads to wander. When you get back, stop at the bar and tell them where you've been, they're always interested. George, Katerina, Nikos, Eva and families, YAMMAS xxx

Kristalli is an amazing hotel complex run by a wonderful family, my partner and I had a terrible experience at Hotel Triton and were recommended Kristalli as better option for our stay in Malia, we were not disappointed. We stayed in a deluxe apartment that was fully self contained, there was ample space, beautiful bathroom, a lovely little terrace looking out to the pool and kittens playing in the garden! So picturesque! A bottle of wine also welcomed us in our room. The pool area is stunning, the bar served great cocktails and the breakfast was ample. The complex is clean and the grounds well maintained, our room was cleaned every day. Kristalli is located in Old Malia area so it's a little out of the main hustle and bustle but still close to lovely tavernas and shops. What a great introduction to Crete, thankyou for our fabulous stay Kristalli!

Although we did not stay at the Kristalli complex, we were made extremely welcome, the place has a friendly atmosphere and we were encouraged to use the facilities. The pool is fantastic and there is plenty of space for sunloungers for relaxing. The food and drink at the pool bar was lovely and reasonably priced and we found ourselves popping in during the day and also in the evenings for drinks and snacks. Should we return to Malia, we wouldn't hesitate to book our accommodation at kristalli. Nikos, Yannis and family run a fantastic hotel!!

We stayed at the Kristalli in May 2014 and loved it. My partner and I are both 27, and wanted a destination which combined liveliness with traditional. This is why we chose Malia old town in low season. We weren't dissapointed. We went for two weeks over the May school holidays. When we left it started to get really busy with young people and quads, so we were glad we missed the hectic season.
The Kristalli apts are in a brilliant location. 2 minutes walk to main road through Malia, far enough away from the main resort that its not noisy. 5 minute walk to Malia strip and 10-15 walk to the beach. There are several supermarkets/ shops within 5 minutes walk if self catering. We thoroughly enjoyed staying in the old town as there were lots of traditional greek restaurants which we tried every night. All were superb.
The hotel itself was fab. All staff very friendly. Will sort out any problems you have promptly, recommend good places to visit or eat, and help with car hire. Spent lots of time at the bar chatting and entertaining us! The room was spacious, with brilliant balcony & view over pool. We just nipped over our wall and lay on sun bed! Plenty of sunbeds!
We had a few snacks at the hotel and food was good standard.
Would definately recommend this hotel to everyone including couples & families.
Fantastic location, staff, rooms, views & food. No negatives!

Room Tip: We have a 1 bedroom ground floor apartment. Lovely balcony and view of pool.

We spent 5 nights in this lovely hotel. The owner lady gave for my daughter very beautiful, new renovated room full of flowers and very cosy. Cleaning is every day and all the staff were really kind and polite. The pool is big and clean. I highly recommend this apartment hotel. Best regards for Kristali staff from Belgrade, Serbia.

Room Tip: Ask to get new renovated rooms. As I heard, they also have some old rooms.
