Such a lovely family run, welcoming villa for a family holiday, young and old. A huge thank you to Panos, his mother Maria, Manos and Anna (our rooms were immaculate at all times) as well as the discreet overnight security guard.

Each morning there was a warm welcome from Panos for breakfast and always a friendly chat at any time.

The pool and the bar area, were also immaculate, which was great for either spending time during the day or to return to after a day out and Panos always kept a discreet, watchful eye around the pool to ensure all children were safe and was meticulous that they were always accompanied by a responsible adult especially if from a neighbouring accommodation.

The villa is well situated for the beach, local shops and walking distance to the beautiful old town of Malia as well as being within a comfortable transfer distance from Heraklion airport.

I most certainly recommend Villa Diasselo and hope that Panos and his family have a lovely season too - thank you.

I can not recommend this place enough! Perfect hotel for families young or old, couples and mature adults. The location is amazing, very close to Malia beach and the busy area or a short walk to Stalida which has some lovely spots on the beach and ALOT quieter than Malia.

The owner Panos is amazing and I can’t thank him enough for our perfect holiday experience with local knowledge, from restaurants to surrounding places to visit and generally making us feel like family when in the Villa. Panos makes an awesome Omlette for breakfast (there are other choices) great coffees and also has a snack menu for through the day along with a good selection of spirits and beer for quiet days poolside!

The rooms are left immaculate by Anna the maid who does an amazing job and is also extremely friendly. The security guard at night is really good too, and helps you feel extra safe at night.

All in all the place is ideal for someone looking for a nice relaxing gate-away and a perfect base for visiting around the south of the island and it is also close to an airport (Heraklion)

I can’t wait to visit again, and I’m looking forward too it so much!!!

Efharisto, yamas!

Villa Diasselo is such a stunning place for a fabulous holiday. It is set between Stalis and Malia just off the beach road. Brilliant location, 2 mins from the beach, shops, fabulous restaurants etc. Rooms are excellent, cleaned daily (except Sundays). Panos, the owner, is super helpful, plus he has an excellent sense of humour so you’re in for a week of laughter :) . I cannot recommend enough. Definitely my home from home and wouldn’t go anywhere else. There are ground floor rooms (3 or 4 steps) so ideal for those with mobility issues. Also the pool is fabulous!

I have spent 10 days in this hotel with my son and not once the owner Panos has greeted us or asked us if we needed anything. He was rude, arrogant and quite patronising.. . Every time we asked him for something it was always a big ask. He was too busy entertaining his own family and the swimmimg pool was always occupied by them and their children. The wifi was never available in the room so false advertising and the shower had no pressure. The only positive was that the room was always cleaned and the maid was lovely.

It was our first (17 days) visit to Villa Diasselo and we are very satisfied about this accommodation/apartments. Owner Panagiotis/Panos is very friendly and his hospitality is great. Villa Diasselo is located near to the beach, price/quality (also the prices in the bar) is in balance with excellent daily cleaning, including security during the night. Within a walk of 15 minutes you are in the old village Malia. Compliments for Panos and his staff. A lot of guests stay every year in Villa Diasselo and you can read (and understand) above why they stay year after year in this superb accomodation!

Friendly host (Panos). Nice pool, bar and beds. The rooms are cleaned daily. The location is very close to the center of malia, so you can walk to most things within about 15 minutes. A very welcoming cretan place to stay at!

We have stayed in Villa Diasselo for one week at the end of August and beginning of September. It was a lovely experience as offered conditions were very good: large apartment, perfectly clean, an useful kitchenette and an outdoor small terrace to quietly spend evenings enjoying the atmosphere of Cretan nights. The pool was perfect to recover after the busy travelling around days and our host was very helpful and agreeable partner of discussions. Closest beach at little walking distance, quiet zone but still feeling the active life around Malia. Glad that we have chosen this location for our stay and we definitely recommend it.

Fantastic small hotel on the outskirts of the main Malia strip. You can get into with a 10 minute walk, but it means your evenings are quiet and peaceful. The rooms are functional and clean with cooking facilities if you so desire. The pool area is lovely. The adjacent bar is well equipped and welcoming. Then there is Panos. What a lovely man. After a few days I felt like one of his family!!! A brilliant host and a fantastic barman. Many nights spent swapping ideas and putting the world to rights. His nephew Manos is equally personable. So helpful and pleasant. If you want a nice place, away from the hurdy gurdy, but close enough. Clean and well looked after, with the best host you could hope for, give this place a try. You won’t be disappointed.

The owner and his staff provide an excellent service , goes above and beyond to ensure your stay is a great one. Rooms are cleaned daily , and have plenty of drawers and wardrobes for your clothes etc.
Each room has a safe and air-conditioning if required.
There are many great places to eat and drink only a short stroll away.
The beach and the "strip" with shops and convenience/market stores are also just a few mins walk away .

My friends and I were allocated to Villa Diasselo after our original choice was closed down. We couldn't have been happier! Pamos was the perfect host. He takes great pride in his property, as manager and owner. The apartment itself was spacious, clean and well equipped. Lovely pool with comfortable sun loungers surrounding. Very comfortable and relaxing bar area, serving excellent food. We had a fantastic holiday at Villa Diasselo and wish to thank Pamos for making it so. On a couple of occasions we required some assistance and Pamos couldn't have been more helpful. We would be more than happy to visit this establishment again in the future and wish Pamos and his team all the very best.
