Where to stay in Crete with kids

We are planning to go to Crete end of July/ August, we are a family of 4 with children aged 8 and 4. We would like half board accommodation as we would like to explore the island during the day and hotel entertainment for the kids at night. We would like a hotel that is not located in the noisy area but easily accessible to shops, restaurants, bus stops. Etc

Would you recommend car hire or public transport to get around?

Hi there

Stalis sounds ideal for your family, north coast, just 25 kms from the airport, it's on the main north coast bus routes, has a superb beach, plus shops, bars and restaurants, but nothing OTT.

A car is always the best way to get around, it's more comfortable, faster, you can go at your own pace, stop when you like and of course, with two youngish children, you can bring all their stuff with you.

Thanks for the information, I will search for Stalis hotels then. Any ideas on family friendly hotels there?

Two hotels in Stalis offering half board are Anastasia Hotel and Aggelo Hotel.

The Anastasia fits most of your criteria as it is very family friendly, has entertainment and is close to the nearest bus stop along the main road. One thing though - it is on the outskirts of Stalis around a 20 min walk into the resort centre and main beach but balance this against it consistently enjoying some great reviews from people who have stayed there.

The Aggelo is situated along the beach road and only 5 mins or so from resort centre etc. It is fronted by one of the better restaurants in Stalis (Kostas Tavern which is run/owned by same person). You won't get the in-house kids entertainment but you are much closer to the shops, beach, restaurants etc here - plus the food will be very good based on Kostas Tavern standards.

Have a look at these two accom options to start with and see what you think. Have fun planning your holiday.
