  • August 2013
We were 10 days in the kristalli and were very pleased overall. The kristalli is a family-run hotel, you feel very well cared for and shows, the guest great attention. Breakfast is served outside at the pool. There is also a beautiful pool bar, which we every evening before the zubettgehen for a Small drink or a bite to eat visit. From there, you could also with the chef and his wife smalltalk and is then always astounded again and again, How good the greek speak english and german. Malia is the principle of two parts, once the old Village ... (there is also the kristalli ) and once from the new part of the city. This new part past on the way to the beach. For the way to the beach one needs about 20 minutes, which is especially on the way back to the hotel very attracts. The old Village is very original and quiet. There are very nice and cozy taverns. The new part of the town is rather to nearly food shops, bars and discos from, which is very adjusted to english guests are. The beaches of Malia are sandy beaches and actually very well maintained. The best beach, patamos beach, is unfortunately only by bus or car. We were in before the sirenis hotel, there the beach is wider and it is a quiet. We recommend for staying at kristalli to rent a car. Day trips such as knossos or Agios Nikolaos are possible without a problem. From the airport Heraklion is also not far away, so that the transfer with the bus not too long time. Our conclusion: kristalli always again with great pleasure, but the next time by car. read hotel review

  • June 2013
The hotel consists of several buildings with roughly 8-12 rooms per complex-so in our opinion very well arranged. On the complex it is therefore also very quiet - only the right on the hotel which service road after krasi raises a few motor noises and honks from, which we however not when disturbing felt. If the hotel half-board, we do not know. We had booked bed/breakfast. The guests came mainly from England and Russia and a few german and spanish guests-but without exception everything quiet contemporaries! The age was between beginning 20 and 60 everything. Free wireless internet-air conditioning 10 ... Euro/day. But we have now in june not yet brought. The hotel however, i do not see as a family hotel, as i erachtes a bit of fun things to do for the children missing. It is mainly for people, which it somewhat more calmly to have would like, a smaller hotel prefer and not the pure 'hotelurlauber' are. read hotel review
  • Location
    5.0

    The hotel is about 800 meters away from the beach in the upper part of Malia nearby the 'old town '. From Heraklion airport about 30-35 miles... A confident driver, the way to 'felt' 10 minutes ☺ near the hotel there are in the old town from Malia, many very good greek restaurants (for example Milos, kalesma, stablos & Elisabeth, san Giorgio), small shops in the immediate area and the main street with many shopping possibilities was only about 300-400 metres. In the old town in the evening it was rather quiet... If you need a 'party' to have would like, ambles you for example the dimokratias street down... However here the offer is very adjusted to the british guests... There are many bars and pubs... But these were (at least early june-season) mostly very rarely visited and correspondingly, no atmosphere... Alternatively you could also on the Malia port area stop... A bit quieter and also some good restaurants (for example Eva tavern). Taxis are on every corner and a public bus we, i think, also seen. Without a problem was also the renting of vehicles (almost of all kinds)... The contact we have discussed the reception in the hotel and were given the scooter to a reasonable price (after negotiation). Parking for scooters and cars are available right on the hotel. Trips we did not book, since we everything on own fist explored-thanks to georgio from the hotel... It had every day a proposed programme for us inventory...!

  • Service
    6.0

    The service in the hotel, we can safely 6 suns... The hotel is a family run-everyone grapples with, and we were always friendly and courteous treated. Of course, the principle: as one of the hosts gets, so, the hosts at the guest! What the kristalli comfortable... In the evening in the hotel bar with Niko on 'god and the world' debate... In the morning the breakfast gerogios the 'day' for us laid out... And when during our stay our tour operator insolvency logged in and we did not know, whether and how the hotel or coming home should (it has no rep when we face or we were in any form informed), had Georgios daughter for us so the things... Thanks a lot to this point again... Was very soothing. The english knowledge of the family are great... German rather less... At least we assume the... We always spoke english. The room cleaning there was nothing to complain about... But this also always a subjective feeling is.

    The breakfast buffet was sufficient however not sumptuous in the selection. Even if we have a few kritisierende votes during breakfast from other guests heard, it handed us. Coffee, tea, milk, orange juice (package), quark, some fruit, cereal, cereal, 2 sorts of bread, toast, ham, cheese, jam (1 sort), as well as scrambled eggs and a cake... On your bill, you could but also other things to order (very ' english-oriented)-reasonably priced in my opinion very fair. The quality of the breakfast was ok. The food, in the evening were offered, we didn't try them, so we can't comment on this. The prices in the hotel bar were okay, too. Every morning was swept and also otherwise gave it in puncto cleanliness nothing to criticize.

    We had a new building an apartment-probably still no year old decor... The finest - we were really happy - everything top... Two balconies, a kitchenette, adequate bathroom, large rooms...

Steep price, but in the beginning june we did not yet use

    It is only the pool bar. There is also the breakfast serves. You can also small grill get. As drinks there are beer, wine, water, different cocktails and of course hot drinks, such as tea or coffee. The pool bar area always made a well-kept and clean impression. Breakfast is continental. That means there is for 2 persons: soluble coffee, 2 glass juice, per 3 slices of hard toast, white bread and brown bread, 2 hard boiled eggs, ever 4 dreieckscheiben pressed ham and cheese, butter and strawberry jams in portion-sized packages. There were only strawberry jams, not even another sort of. On request we got at 2 days honey in addition. After the breakfast was still some fruit serves ( melons, grapes). And the every day. Perhaps exactly the right thing for English. No breakfast buffet as in the hotel description to read! Of course, you could also another breakfast buy (6a 8 Euro). The prices at the pool bar are normal area for this most generic. Barbecue for 4a 10 Euro, a 0.33 beer for 3 Euro.

    The center of Malia is about a 10-minute walk away. There is also the party place with many taverns and bars. Also lots of small supermarkets are on the way to get there. To the beach from Malia it was about 20 minutes walk. Excursions you have to plan. From the hotel is offered nothing. Best to rent a vehicle with one of the many lenders. Or bay the excursions the organizers, the also in Malia to find.

    We had booked a studio. This rooms are in the old building where the front desk is. The furniture is a bit shabby and is not in the best condition anymore. For greek standards the room was but the clean state! The bathroom also a renovation necessary. The a or other schimmelfuge and broken tiles we have found. The kitchenette is to make not recommendable. There is a lack of facilities. But there is a fridge the is free. There is a small balcony with a table and two chairs. As tv depends on a small lcd tv on the wall. With us there was only RTL. All other channels were English or greek. Safe there are for a fee (20 Euro). Also the air conditioning there is only for a fee(40 Euro), although in the hotel description by jt touristik nothing mentioned. As we to weight wanted we were German travel guide out, which in Heraklion is.

  • Service
    5.0

    The staff were always friendly and gave some tip for interesting excursions. However all speak only English. The rooms were daily mopped and the apfalleimer emptied, however nothing more. Every 2 days there were new bed sheets and towels. For children is this hotel little suitably. The pool is not suitable for children and a playground is also not available.

  • Sport & Leisure
    3.0

    Leisure offers does not exist. The only entertainment is the music and the billardtisch by the pool. For the internet there are 3 computers at the pool bar with English keyboard, so no X, C, bed. 15 minutes cost 1 Euro. The pool and the whole complex is in the well-kept and clean state. There are enough chairs and umbrellas without fee available. The shower by the pool is rather pathetic.
