What a warm welcome we received from Ingrid when we arrived at the Melissa Apartments in the early hours of the morning. We had two apartments at the front of the accommodation with a beautiful wide balcony, perfect for myself, my husband and my brother and sister in law. Over the two weeks we met the rest of the Fragakis...

Just got back from a week away in Malia and had a great time. These apartments are in a great location for the centre of Malia with easy access to everything. We had a room upgrade for the first few nights we were there and George and Ingrid were very welcoming and hospitable. The pool area was lovely and Christina...

Period of my stay: 9-16 of August, 2014; guests: me + 1 friend Briefly: PERFECT for all kind of funny and relaxing holidays and to taste the Greek hospitality and lifestyle…so that 1 week can be too short to fully enjoy it! This is a stay not ideal for destroying and messy holidays (silence and good manners are guaranteed in...

Once again we had a lovely, relaxing time in Malia and again were looked after so well by Giorgos and Ingrid, Christina and Elena. Nothing is too much trouble for them. Want to know where to visit? How to get there? When to go? No problem. Looking forward to next year!

Returning to Malia after many years I knew I'd prefer the Old Town's charm and peace away from the liveliness of Downtown Malia. Finding Melissa was a dream, just moments away from all of the Old Town Taverna's for fabulous food and hospitality which was reciprocated in the warm welcome we received from Ingrid and her husband George. We were...

On paper this hotel is perfect for a holiday away with mates, letting your hair down after exam stress etc. Upon arrival the owners welcomed us friendly enough, however there was a 'mix-up' with the rooms meaning that 13 of us had to share 3 rooms for the first 2 nights rather than 4, for which we were compensated with...

When arriving after an overnight ferry from Athens, the owner organised for us to be able to check into our room earlier. All the staff were extremely helpful and even drove us to the local tourist attraction as it was a hot day and a long walk. Location and facilities are also great. Definitely recommend you stay here if possible.

Having just finished my stay at Melissa Apartments I can only say I had a mostly mixed experience. The hotel was positioned in a great location, within walking distance to the strip but far away enough to ensure a quiet nights sleep. The rooms were of a high quality, comfortable beds and there was friendly pool-bar staff (the woman, I'm...
