Don't stay here!
"I stayed here during the summer and I never want to go back there again! I came here to have a good time with my friends but Pavos made us feel like naughty children any time we were having a laugh. When we arrived Pavos gave us a speech about "respecting his home", we are old enough to know how to behave in someone elses home. Pavos also disliked the fact we did not spend all day every day in the hotel by the pool and didn't spend alot of our money there either, he actually went as far as mentioning this to us when leaving and we did not even get a bye! We were also told he would prefer for us to be back at the hotel by 11pm! The rooms were not the cleanest, i found a spider in my shower while i was in it. I felt i was walking on eggshells every second i spent in that hotel and wish to never return. I also feel we were made to believe by Thomas Cook the apartments were located near the strip, this was not the case, it was a good 10 minutes walk and had to walk up a dark alley to get to it."

Very good holiday at Diasello
"Diasello is a very well run apartments. The rooms are basic but spotless! It is Located in the quieter part of malia which is good because you can get a good night's sleep. It's family run and Panos and his wife are always on their feet keeping the place running! (they also have the cutest wee baby ever!) There is also really good security at night. Panos was very stressed when we were there because his dad isnt well. He can be a bit strict with young people but all he wants is a bit of respect!

Looked like a run down broffle!
"Rooms where dirty, the bed sheets where never cleaned and the owner treated us like primary school children! He was going mad at us if we came in early hours in the morning definetly not a hotel for the young and lively. Stay Away Awfull Place!"

Malia 2010 JUNE AMAZING!
"Where do I start!!
Me and 4 lads went for 10 days in June 2010, do not let the coach drop off point put you off! Once you get in the hotel bar/pool area you realise what a friendly place this really is.
We arrived at 0130-0200hrs, and there to greet us was the one the only "boss man" PANOS. Him and his family own and run the place and you are an extention of that family wile you stay in there home . Panos came up to the room with us, and put his cards on the table "respect me once i will respect you twice!" and that is what he did. he told where we needed to go what we need to do and what to avoid - QUADS-after 3 days we saw what he meant broken arms legs cut up bodies! People drive drunk and fast!
Panos and Marianna are worth 10 of the poor excuse for a rep "DISCO DAN" we saw him once the whole 11 days! Panos and Marianna run the bar and kitchen early till late every day/night. You get more than what you pay for. If you want crap on a plate you can go have a 2 euro breakfast on the strip. But the best hangover cure in Malia is a DIASSELO BREAKFAST (with English ingredients)!
The pool is always clean and there are more than enough sun beds (FREE).
Every night/morning we got in we sat round the pool talking and not once were we told to be quite, don't take the **** and youâll be fine.
We will 100% be returning but not with Thomas Cook.
THANK FOR HAVING US PANOS and FAMILY.

suntan & bites
"my wife and i spent two weeks at diasselo apts on the beautiful island of crete.the aps were very clean and tidy. the pool area is very spaceous.panos and his over worked wife marieanne are very good hosts.the apts are far enough away from the noise off the bars and clubs as not to hear them but close enough to walk to.the apts were full of twenty to thirty year olds. not really suitablefor older couples wanting a quite holiday away from all the noise. (ps) ponos we hope your father is doing better.wish him the best."

Yamas Panoss and Marianna
"Diassello was the best apartments and in the best location we have stayed at.Spacious excellent, clean appartments.Just a short walk to Malia and Stallis the beach,shops and nightlife also a short walk to the main road to use local bus.Family orintated and away from loud music at night so it was great to have a night cap Mithos,socialise and to have a good nights sleep. Excellent, bar,food,and swimming pool and relaxed family atmosphere,.Pannos and Marianna are super people and made us feel very welcome and nothing was too much touble for them. Helped us speak greek and retrieve our ball after a shout of 'oh, no!! from the pool!!
