“Excellent Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 December 2011

I would advise girls to come here, it is away from the rowdy boys and close enough to go to the strip every night! Bring on Malia 2012! Staying here again in 2012! Highly Recommended

Room Tip: Any! All are clean and tidy!

Myself and 5 friends stayed here in August 2010, and we weren't dissapointed. The apartments are a 10 minute walk from the strip, meaning that the restaurants, bars and clubs are on your doorstep, and also meaning that at the end of the night you can get a good sleep to recharge for the next night. It is family run, and everyone was very friendly throughout our stay.
Although we were there for the late nights, the apartments are suitable for everyone due to their location, and the majority of people there during our stay were a bit older. The snacks on offer were better than I expected, and the cooked breakfasts would make you think you were still at home. The rooms, reception and pool area were all very clean and tidy - would reccomend this place to anyone.

Room Tip: High room pool view

Went on hoiliday with my friends to Malia in crete and stubble across the San Giorgio Appartments.
The room was very basic, it had bathroom, big balcony a seperate bedroom and little kitchen.
The only downsides were the room was rarley visited by cleaners and you have to provide your own toilet roll, but not a big deal.
the locaztion was ideal, just far enough from the strip to be able to sleep in peace, but 10 min walk away from the clubs and the busy centre.
the pool was a good size, clean and there was alway sunloungers available
the staff were brilliant, very friendly and helpfull.
Just a great little place, highly recommended, value for money

I have returned earlier today from a two week stay in the San Giorgio Apartments Malia. I travelled with a friend (we're both 18), and we were a little unsure of what to expect due to it being our first holiday without parents. when we arrived at the hotel around 4pm in the afternoon, we were greeted by a friendly lady by the name of Eleni, who ran the hotel. During our first week, 29th July - 5th August, we were the only two girls in the apartments, and Eleni did keep a regular eye on us to make sure we were ok and had been keeping safe. She recommended us places to eat, bars and clubs to go to, which was extremely helpful. The food around the pool at the pool bar was of a fairly good standard, but cheaper breakfasts could be found over the road at Mirage, well worth the two minute walk, total hangover cure!

The rooms were extremely basic but very clean, although no toaster provided. My only complaint with this hotel was the the bath towels were only changed once during our two week stay which was a little minging, but dont let this put you off! The fact that the hotel is situated in the Old Town means that the only noise heard during the night was that of other holidaymakers within the hotel returning from the strip. No loud music could be heard and yet it was only a 5 minute walk. No other people are allowed back to the apartments, but this is for the safety of the guests, and there's a security guard on site from 12.30am until 8am to ensure no other people enter the apartments with guests, he was nice and friendly too.

I would very much recommend this hotel to others, we had a fantastic time at the San Giorgio Apartments Malia, whilst holidaying in Malia, i would recommend booking the excursion 'rewind', as it was wicked fun. To eat, i would recommend Gringo's Mexican on the Malia Strip, Jasmine House Chinese restaurant in Stalis and also the San Giorgio restaurant in the Malia Old Town (very traditional Cretan Taverna, lovely staff, amazing food at a decent price, so well worth a visit!)
In terms of bars and clubs, our favourite bars were: Zoo, Charlies, Banana and Heaven, and Candy was by far the best Club, although Apollo, Malibu and Safari were pretty good too. Entry to all the above is free, and drinks are all at a decent price, and can usually be haggled down a little is you play the PR's off against one another.

Can't wait to go back next year!

San Georgio is located in the old town of Malia, it is small and cosy with a nice pool and bar.. Food is very pricey but of good quality, the breakfast is fantastic (real Bacon and sausage) well presented and will set you up for the day.. When we arrived there was nobody to greet us so we had to wait until the owner arrived, there is a 20 euro charge for the safe and no refund when you return the key but this a small price to pay to secure your valuables.. The rooms were cleaned to a high standard but during our stay we were missed on one day.. you need to take toilet roll as self catering means just that..ladies please watch out when using the toilet downstairs as the seat will not stay up (it helps if you are a contortionist!!) we were dissapointed with the television not working for the full 7 days but it was the start of the season and no big deal.. during your stay you must go to San georgio resturant the food is the best and you are really looked after.. we tried others but nothing came close to san gorgio.. another must is spinalonga we booked with the travel rep and had a fantastic day with a beach bbq.. overall a nice holiday and absolutely loved old Malia...

I stayed at the San Giorgio Apartments between the 18th and 25th of May (2007) with my brother and a friend. We booked the hotel at the last minute so that we could travel over to Athens during our weeks package hotel to see the Champions League Final (involving Liverpool and AC Milan). We paid a really cheap price and didn't expect much so it was a really nice surprise when we arrived there.

The room was really spacious and had everything that you needed. There was a safe in it and a good sized bathroom. The only problem was the shower, which was a bit awkward to use.

We only saw the hotel as a place to sleep, seeing as we were having a bit of a rowdy week but it ended up being more than that. We spent most of our time in the hotel bar with the two fantastic barmen (Georgos and Stefanos). We lazed by the pool a lot as well and had a blast.

Malia itself was quiet when we were there (low season) but there were plenty of bars and restaurants to keep yourself occupied. We went to a couple of clubs which were decent as well.

The week was mainly geared towards the football for us so we didn't exert nearly as much energy in Malia as we did in Athens.

One thing I would absolutely reccomend for anyone staying at this hotel, is the restaurant of the same name. It's owned by the same people and they will no doubt plug the restaurant during your stay and give you directions too. It serves some of the best food you could possibly eat and also has a wonderful atmosphere. At first I thought it was just a case of the owners plugging it etc but after we'd been once, we went every night!

Overall we had a great time at this hotel and I would recommend it to anyone.

  • Liked — The bar/pool and the restaurant of the same name!
  • Disliked — The shower.

We arrived on the Sunday our wedding being the previous day and were met by Helen, a lovely women so pleasant and helpful. The room was clean and tidy with a small balcony which was nice to just sit and relax. The pool area was really nice, nice clean pool and there were plenty of sun loungers available. there was a small poolside bar here serving drinks and a variety of snacks, all reasonbly priced. In a nutshell would we stay again ?, most definately, Helen we look forward to seeing you again next year, many thanks for making our holiday so enjoyable.
