We spent a week at the Hotel Orestis and had a truly memorable holiday. The room had a sea view and was modern and clean. We sat having our breakfast every morning on the balcony which backed on to a beautiful swimming pool. The place was so quiet and peaceful and could have not been more relaxing. There are three wonderful taverna on your doorstep and at the bottom of the road is the town of Stalos with beaches and many shops. The hotel is run by Platon the owner who will be your friend by the end of your stay. He told us the best beaches and places of interest to visit and marked them on our map the first morning. He took us out to dinner on the last night to a small cretan taverna in the mountains which was a delight. We will be going back very soon we hope.
