8/10 Very good

Ideal Value Option
Stopped in Malia for one night to get a taste of the action - turns out Malia is a ghost town in October but enough places still open for a quiet night out. Hotel apartment was perfectly adequate for a night, and very cheap. Staff were very smiley and helpful. Bar is cheap and the pool area very nice. Room a bit shabby but fine if you’re not spending much time in there, we took the most basic option and ultimately you get what you pay for. Fridge-freezer worked fine. Shower was decent but the dispenser for shower gel/shampoo was empty so had to use a bar of hand soap (provided, along with ample towels - I’m sure they’d have refilled it but once you’re in there it’s a bit late!). We didn’t make use of the plug-in hob or the breakfast but literally hundreds of local food options. Location is spot on, a quiet road which is 100m to Malia beach in one direction and 100m to the main strip in the other. I don’t expect to go back to Malia but for the hard-partying sun-worshippers Malia caters for you couldn’t do much better for value than Stelios.

Not great, but quite decent hotel
A little of a Las Vegas style in the rooms, which is not a surprise when you consider this is Malia. Hotel looks great on the outside - the garden, the pool, the reception... The quality of the rooms is not so good, but not bad either. Bed is comfortable, linen and towels are shining clean, unfortunately not the same can be said about the floor. A little more attitude towards hygiene would be appreciated. The worst thing is the shower cabin: 1/4 circle with 75 cm radius. You can hardly move in there, what to say - have a decent shower. But my overall impression is good. Especially having in mind that the beach is no more than 200 m away, and it's a nice sand beach. The reason for which I will most likely not stay there again, is not the hotel, but Malia itself. But for those who like party resorts, it could be a good value.

Wonderful hotel
My wife and I had to come to Crete as my daughter had been hospitalised at the start of her holiday. We booked in to Stelios Gardens to be near her when she came out of hospital. The staff of the hotel were wonderful and very accommodating and I could not thank them enough. The pool area was very clean and quiet with a laid-back vibe. At the edge the restaurant area although small was also very nice and very relaxed especially in the evening with the pool lit up next to the tables.The food was always very good and the menu extensive and reasonably priced. If we came to Malia again we would without a doubt stay at Stella’s Gardens. Again thank you to all the staff there for making our stay easy and allowing our daughter to stay on until she could fly.

We really liked the hotel, the facilitues were great but when we had a few issues and needed help from the front desk they could't be of help i.e we had no hot water for one of the nights and nothing could be done

Loved it here. It is a little oasis of calm. The pool was large,clean and was never a problem in getting a sunbed. The rooms were a little small but comfy. Air con worked well.

This is by far the nicest place I have ever stayed at in Greece! Perfect location, 3 min walk to the beach and in the other direction 3 min walk to the town. We stayed in the superior studio which also included a small kitchen with sink and stove top. The rooms were spotless and had newly renovated bathrooms. The owner had great suggestions for a car rental and was always around to help. There is even a night guard so the property is very safe. The pool and gardens are so beautiful. It is obvious that the owner takes pride in his this property. Perfect stay!

Girls Holiday
My 18 year old daughter stayed here with friends and had a great holiday. The rooms and facilities were fine for them and they were very happy with the location, so close to the beach and the strip.

A little gem in the heart of Maila
We couldn't be happier with our choice. Everything was simply perfect. Location was in the heart of Malia, close to most restaurants and shops. Our luxury 2-bedroom apartment had an amazing interior, it was also spacious and very clean. Pool area was great as well. We would love to return there some day.
