We have just returned from a weeks holiday at Stelios Gardens. It was a wonderful break. We were so impressed by the location, the friendliness of the staff and the wonderful fresh produce grown on site and used in the food from the menu. The 'gardens' part refers to the garden where they grow fresh fruit and veg. Although there...

Second time at this beautiful hotel! The rooms (actually studios) are recorated and equipped properly for all our needs and the location very attractive - close to the centre and to the beach as well. Among all the personnel is always friendly and polite!!!

Run by a lovely family who were very welcoming and couldn't do enough to help us. The whole family work hard and were extremely polite. Food at the bar was delicious. The pizza and garlic bread were amazing lots of...

Thank you so much for your lovely review, after receiving a few bad reviews recently from people who have been very negative which in my opinion is due to receiving reprimands for their appalling behaviour, I am so pleased to finally be able to thank someone who has enjoyed and appreciated the hard work we have put in to make...

Great for a girls holiday in Malia.. When we first arrived at Stelios Gardens we were delighted with the location. It is situated approximately two minutes from the strip and restaurants, the supermarket is just at the top of the road on the corner (30 seconds away) and the beach (used for events such a malia live and the paint...

Hi thank you for writing a review for us we do appreciate the feed back from our guests, I have taken on board the suggestion you made about the do not disturb sign and will give it some consideration, the non admittance of people from other hotels to rooms is for your safety and security and just a quick reminder...

The location is everything! 30 seconds from the strip, 1 minute from the beach and close to many food and alcohol shops. The pool and bar area is so nice- plenty of sun loungers and beds. Rooms are what you need but we did have problems with lights and water not always working properly. Overall, perfect hotel for groups going...

On arrival we were greeted by the hotel owner, straight away we could tell she wasn't the pleasantest of people but shrugged it off thinking we wouldn't really cross her path. First thing on checking in, we were offered air conditioning, safe box & wifi which all came at an extremely hefty price. We chose not to have these facilities....

I would just like to respond to your very negative review of my hotel as I feel that many of your points are unwarranted, air-conditioning safes and wi-fi are all facilities that are available for our guests if required and are not included in the holiday price, this is clearly stated in your holiday brochure for you to consider before...
