Without a shadow of a doubt, the best hotel I have ever been to. Upon booking the hotel through Thomas cook I immediately set upon reading through the never ending list of amazing reviews, all of which painted an amazing picture of the hotel and it's staff. Arriving at the hotel around 11:30pm we were greeted by the Manager, who told us to drop our bags and head down stairs, where food had been prepared for us, a great touch when you've spent all day traveling. We were then shown to our room, which was immaculately cleaned and ready for our arrival, equipped with air con and a fridge. The hotel has 3 pools with a large main pool near to the bar, with a baby pool immediately next to this and another pool, slightly smaller than the large pool, offset to the side of the hotel. Here you will also find mini golf, a pool table and a table tennis table. The pools were all very clean and never too busy to either swim around or just float about in. The kids club wasn't a service we required however the facilities which included a kids park looked great. The hotel is very close to all amenities, including Bars restaurants and tavernas. The Beach spreads all the way across the resort so it's your choice where your choose to join it. There are also an array of shops, chemists and excursions along the beach road. You have around a 10 minute walk into the centre of Stalis, however your walk takes you straight on the beach road past shops and bars so it's at your own pace. I read loads of reviews and threads about having a 3 day hike to Malia. Malia is literally 10 minutes walk in the opposite direction to Stalis, so if you fancy the nightlife of Malia, which also hosts some nice restaurants that is the place to be, and you'll be there in no time. Back to the hotel, the staff are amazing, and I believe, aswell as the hotels exceptional standards, the staff are one of the reasons we had such a good time at the hotel and on our holiday. I admire the managers work ethic, as he was at work pretty much all the time, working behind the bar, having a laugh and dance about, or greeting people at the hotel. The managers wife and kids are also present so it gives the feel of a real laid back family atmosphere. The bar and restaurant staff are all very helpful and talkative, Maria and Vana always made time to come and speak about our day. The reception staff are all really helpful and talkative. Mike from Hull is one of the best guys I've ever met, he works reception through the night and always put up with our drunken blabber in the early hours. That aside the hotel is really quiet on a night and there was never any issues with any of the guests. The food is great with a varied choice on an morning and evening. There is a barbeque one night during the week which makes a nice change. The evening entertainment is also very good and includes, a quick change show, kareoki, quiz night, GREEK NIGHT! a burlesque show to name just a few. This hotel is ideal for couples families young children and groups, and is central to all areas including Hersonisoss and Herklion, and Stalis and Malia. We will definatley be returning to this Hotel in the future. Thanks to the manager and all his staff for a great experience and a great holiday.
