Kristalli Hotel Apartments
Ranked #2 of 80 Speciality Lodging in Malia
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 October 2013

Great location in the old town with traditional outdoor tavernas, yet only a short stroll to the busy nightlife in Malia and the beach road to the golden sand and warm Mediterranean. Yes, the pictures match the place with spacious relaxing landscaping, plenty of sun loungers, palm trees, a pool bar with music and delicious food. I got a great deal on standard accommodation and was very impressed with how roomy it was with everything you need for a vacation including table and chairs indoors and out, kitchen facilities, toiletries, hairdryer and free wi-fi, but the best thing about the Kristalli is the owners. I've never stayed anywhere where the staff are so accommodating and so genuinely wonderful, always greeting you with a smile.

Our second holiday here and we would not stay anywhere else in Malia. The apartments are superb and are kept spotlessly clean by the staff. The hosts are the most friendly people I have come across and Nikos ( Jonathon so as not to confuse the tourists ) at the pool bar provides a constant stream of entertainment throughout the day.We had a large party of friends there for a wedding and I believe everyone in that party would agree that we were looked after superbly.

Recently stayed for a week at this hotel in deluxe studio. Found the room to be lovely and clean. Big and modern facilities. Really couldnt fault the rooms or the grounds all very well kept and comes with some adorable kittens!! The location was also perfect easy walk into malia. We also ventured into stalis a few nights you will need transport for that though. Old town also a stone throw away which is very cute and quaint. The staff seem very friendly and helpful. This would of beem a perfect stay if everything in malia wasnt completely SHUT!

Had a brilliant holiday. The accommodation was superb, located nicely in the Old Town away from the noise, but near enough to walk down during the day. The outside area was spotless, the bar and pool area started off tidy but we tended to move everything around. And what can we say about the hosts? They were fabulous. Nikos kept us all smiling, Eva and Eva quietly ensured we had everything we needed, and Katerina and George were a pleasure to see. Will definitely be back. A five star holiday at a three star price.

Room Tip: All rooms are good, but for a little more room go for superior or deluxe.

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
