    We loved staying at Socrates - great people that make guests welcome , great location - very central but still away from the heart of busy Malia and great atmosphere - relaxing and homy. Thanks a lot for a fantastic week !

    The trip restored my belief that Greece is a great destination. The staff in the hotel went above and beyond what is expected, in particular, Sofia and Kostas were a great credit to the hotel. I would highly recommend this hotel to all my family...More

    Everything was fine, people very friendly, hotel is close to the city centre but in a quite calm side street. Pool is very nice, beach 5 minutes to walk. Breakfast was also very good, but could be a little more variable.
