This was our first trip to Crete and it turned out to be better than we have expected. After careful consideration we've choose the Filia Hotel in Stalis and now we know that we couldn't do any better! We have only stayed for 5 days but enjoyed every second of it. Hotel is run by three Greek brothers Michael, Vasili and George. They are all very welcoming and friendly. When we arrived at the hotel the first thing was a nice and cold drink on the house, and it carried on from there every night. The hotel has two pools and two bars with enough space for everyone to enjoy! Rooms were clean and quiet big with a balcony.
The location of the Hotel is just perfect, less than 5 minutes to the beach, which was really beautiful and sandy. Definitely the nicest beach in the area, as we went to see couple of the others close by but none of them were sandy as the one in Stalis. There are number of souvenir shops, supermakerts, restaurants and bars to choose from. We eat at Artemis restaurant every night, sitting on their outside patio area looking straight at the beach. The view was really amazing. The food was fantastic and the service really spot on. After couple of days we actually found out the one of the waiter was a cousin of the brothers in Filia Hotel. You can also rent a bike and go around to explore the Island. The prices are very fair and you can bargain around. If you are looking for nice, relaxing holiday then Stalis in Crete is a very good choice. For the hotel, if you want to feel as home then you won't go wrong with Filia.
If we ever decide to go to Crete again we will definitely stay at the Filia Hotel.
