Our apartment was roomy, and airy, good for the price.The location of the apartments was excellent, close enough to the strip of bars and the beach for a gentle stroll, but not too close to be noisy and disruptive in the night. Lots of lovely restaurants nearby, but easy enough to grab a quick affordable meal from the pool bar. The pool was clean and the flowers around well-maintained. It was a very relaxed atmosphere. George, Elias and Christina were very friendly, provided great service and helpful recommendations! Ask them which restaurants to visit! We would definitely recommend staying there. We had a lovely time!

The staff were wonderful and responded promptly to any questions or concerns that we had. The pool and bar area were very nice and private. The location of the apartment was very good for us. It was close to restaurants, the old town, market, bakery and center of town. It was maybe a 15- 20 minute walk to the beach, that was not an issue for us. The apartment is centrally located to many attractions and archeological sites.

Excellent !!!
Had a great week at Melissa Apartments. The owners George and Ingrid made me feel like one of the family. A special mention must go to Christina who works behind the bar,she is an absolute gem. Hope to go back soon.

Die Unterkunft war sehr schön, die Betreiber sehr relaxt und freundlich. Die Unterkunft ist sehr ruhig gelegen. Ich hatte dort eine schöne Woche. Allerdings ist Malia nicht jedermanns Sache. Da ich einen Roller gemietet hatte war ich jeden Tag unterwegs, der Ort war also nicht so entscheidend.
