We have just returned from Stalis in Crete. After visiting Zante 2 years in a row we decided to try a different Greek Island, unfortunately we were very disappointed.
Zante was like paradise unfortunately Stalis is not. No entertainment apart from a few Irish Bars, which i didnt want to sit in while on holiday.
We stayed in Nikos in Stalis, although these apartments are situated well (on outskirts of Stalis) that is all they are. Advertised as family accomodation more liken 18-30. To many young noisy groups one being next door making noise until 4am in morning and when they got up in the afternoons taking over the pool. Would not recommend weekly barbeque, did not enjoy. Towels changed every 4 days, toilet bin emptied every 2 days, beds changed weekly(not good enough) All restaurants we ate in were very good especially Marias, but would not return to Stalis. Zante is the true Greece we love not man made like Stalis for the British.
