We returned from the Filia Hotel on July 31st having stayed for a week.
We booked through lastminute.com and were not quite sure what to expect. However, we had no need to worry! As soon as we arrived at around 11.30pm we could not have been made more welcome. Michael and Billy bought us a drink while we checked in and the atmosphere around the pool bar was great with a lot of the guests appearing to be regular visitors which speaks volumes about the Filia Hotel.
We stayed in a maisonette which was a split level room with 2 beds upstairs and 2 downstairs. The room was modern and cleaned regularly and the cleaning staff were always polite and friendly.
Most evenings, we went into Stalis for a meal, but always made a point of coming back for a few drinks at the pool bar where Billy entertained everyone. One of the highlights of the holiday was our daughter's 13th birthday. Billy, Michael & George surprised her with a Birthday cake that had her name and age iced on it and Billy made her a non-alcoholic cocktail complete with a sparkler, Greek flag, umbrella & a slice of melon. Our daughter's face was a picture and she is still talking about it nearly 3 weeks later.
The pool was great and we have never been on more luxurious and comfortable sunbeds. The location of the hotel could not have been better as it was only a few minutes walk from the main strip with a good selection of restaurants, bars and shops. Stalis was just the right size and not as overwhelming as Hersonissos which we passed through on the way from the airport. We spent a few days on the beach and found the best location to be by the Ocean Restaurant & Bar where the sunbeds and umbrellas were free. We ate there at lunchtime and the food was lovely with the owner making us feel very welcome. Another meal that we really enjoyed was at the Curry Park Restaurant. The owner of the Curry Park asked us where we were staying and when we told him that it was the Filia Hotel, he said unprompted that Billy, Michael and George were a good family who really care about their guests!
The barbecue on Sunday evening was well worth attending with George preparing an amazing meal with plenty to go around.
The best way we can describe the Filia Hotel is it is the perfect place for a great family holiday. Our 2 teenage daughters are already asking us if we can go back next year which is the ultimate compliment. Billy, Michael and George work around the clock to ensure that their guests have a great holiday and we will definitely be going back again next year!!!!
