After reading some bad reviews about stamos I was a little apprehensive about going, but I was off on a holiday with my best friend (two 17 year old girls) and we were determined to have a good time.
When we arrived at 0400 Greek time, the security and night staff were very helpful and very funny. They carried our suitcases up to our rooms for us. A litle tip *make sure you pay for the aircon and a safe as soon as you get there it costs 40euros for the air con and 15euros for the safe for a week and it's so worth it!
We were lucky enough to be staying in the new apartments which were absolutely divine, so spacious, clean, well equiped, we were more than happy! In contrast to the old ones they are certainly an improvement, but if you're going to faliraki you're going to spent time in the sun and go out at night to get really drunk, you're not going to spend all the time in your hotel.
Everywhere we went all the PRs and other workers said "wow you're at stamos that's by far the best hotel here". The pool was great, not for the non-party goers, there was a DJ all afternoon playing music, but we loved it! There are always sun beds and the hotel has free lilo's so don't worry about needing to buy one.
Whoever said it's on a hill, that is SUCH a lie! It's literally a 2 minute walk from club street, and yes you have to walk all the way down club street to bar street, but we always stopped on route and you don't want to stay right in the centre. It was nice to have a break away from the noise in the day. It's also about a 5-10minute walk away from the beach but we didn't spend much time there as it's quite busy.
All in all, we had the most amazing time, met so many awesome people and made some friends for life. I'd go back in a heartbeat and am seriously considering going out to work next year. There wasn't a single point when I felt ready to go home! The food is great (if u can stomach it after a heavy night ;) ), the drinks are yummy once you know where to go and you get some great deals. There are always events on during the week which are worth doing!
GO TO STAMOS!
