We had room 214 a short walk from the poolside and bar and found it perfect for our week long holiday.The room was as expected for a Greek self catering holiday, a well fitted kitchen with ample cutlery and pots and pans, though we didn't even make a cup of coffee in the room.The bar area and pool was very...

Just got back from a week in Malia, staying at the Stelios Gardens Hotel. The studio apartment was clean and was just the right size for us. We got in very late , but the staff were still pleased to see us,and kept the bar open for meals or drinks, were very helpful. During our stay, we could not have...

We came to Stelios Gdns with Olympic Holidays mid September. Upon arrival we were pleased with size and cleanliness of the 1 bed apartment but then things changed. Our room was only cleaned two or three times in a space of one week which is disappointing for self catering. You're expected to buy your own loo roll after the complimentary...

Just come back from a 2 week holiday away at Stelios gardens with my friend and I can honestly say it is an amazing hotel and fantastic value for money! Right next to all the attractions and a minute away from the beach, it has all you need in the surrounding area. Staff was lovely and welcoming, good food and...

Stelios Gardens is a quiet place preserved from the loud Malia bar street. The reception was excellent and the staff was very nice and available. Don't hesitate to ask for tips and advices about where to eat well, the places to visit. You can even buy family olive oil at the hotel. A very pleasant experience, we recommend this place...

The hotel is very basic but was everything we wanted. The bar was great, the pool was lovely, the rooms were basic but tidy. Bathroom was very small and had trouble with our shower not working and temperature changing it on its own but wasn't all bad.

Just returned a week ago with my 14yr old son from Stelios Gardens, having checked google maps prior to departing we thought Stelios Gardens was situated in Old town Malia, so upon arrival was pleasantly surprised to be in the heart of Malia with all amenities close by, just 5min to the beach, McDonalds, the strip, bars and shops.
