“I'll be back!!! :)”
Reviewed 27 June 2007

Decided to go to Crete this year as we have never been to Greece, chose Stefania as they are in Stalis which is just between Malia and Hersonissos.
The apartments are run by such a friendly family - you just want to stay forever - Maria goes out of her way to cook for her guests (portions are monstrous!!) and cooked the four of us a meal even when the snackbar was closed! Her son Yianni runs the Leprechaun pub at the apartments - its small but lovely inside and the barmen are great!
Stalis is quite quiet as far as resorts go. It's small and everyone knows everyone else (not over-commercialised like some spanish resorts) and has everything you need for a relaxing holiday, and if you want great nightlife, Malia is 5mins in a taxi.
Starbeach is a MUST! (5mins on bus from Stalis) This is a water park on the beach which has various slides, pools, lazy river, bars, music pumping all day long, go-karting, all sorts of watersports and parasailing, bungee jump, and plenty of places to eat. It also hosts foam parties regularly. Its free to get in and we spent 2 full days here during our week.
Accommodation at Stefania is typically Greek and quite basic but definitely ample. There are 2 maisonettes which sleep 4, and we had one of them. We had 2 beds, kitchenette and bathroom downstairs and 2 beds/ double upstairs. We also had table and chairs on a terrace outside which was great! Rooms are cleaned daily and towels changed twice a week.
Beside Stefania there is a great Italian restaurant on one side and a gorgeous chinese on the other.
I would definitely recommend this place - we loved it and will be back very soon!!!
5 stars!

Reviewed 4 January 2007

I have been to these apartments 5 times 4 times with my whole family and this time just with my gran and I(my gran and Grandad have been goin for 15 years sometimes twice a year), its was great as usual. The apartments are very Spacious and everything you need is provided. The food at the pool bar is Spectacular, The two Maria's cook there, every so often there is a Bbq at the pool bar and everyone is invited the food and entertainment is Brill!!.
There is loads of shops,Resturants and pus around and the leprachaun at the front of the apartments is Brilliant!!! I would definatley go back again and incourage people to go,when my gran and i were there we went horse riding for two hours in the mountains and along the coastline it was only 20 euros which was briliant and the man was really nice it was only the two of us, we had a great time, the next day it was so good we decided to go back again the man comes and collects you from your apartments which is a great help!! The name off the stables are the "Amarilles Stable" I would Really recommed it!!

  • Liked — The Pool Area
