“Best package holiday ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2011

Had a really wonderful and memorable trip to this resort. Stalis is a lovely town and at this time of the year, there aren't too many tourists in situ. As for Dionysos, we felt we genuinely made friends with the staff there and this made our holiday.

The appartments were clean and we enjoyed our balcony with the view of the pool.

I would definitely recommend this resort and hope to return next year.

Stayed at the apartments for a week. Would definitely recommend - we were pleasantly surprised at just how clean the rooms and pool area were. Good location only a few minutes stroll to the beach. Small supermarket next door.

There is a good selection of snacks on offer. The bar is well stocked but soft drinks are very expensive

The Thomas Cook rep Vinny was really friendly talking to guests round the pool, but not 'in your face' just a nice lad and a credit to the company. The owner Dimitri is friendly (talks quite loud but harmless!)

Over the main road on the way to the beach there is a poor dog tied to a tree 24/7 on a 4 foot chain in an overgrown garden 'guarding' some chickens. We felt so sorry for him and would throw food over every time we went past. PLEASE DO THE SAME !!

Room Tip: Stay in Dionysos 1 if you can

this was the first girls holiday we've ever been on and we couldn't have asked for a better hotel. cookie and thomas behind the bar were very welcoming and the entertainment and bbq night was great. cookie even put up with our hangovers and our fussy food orders every day. our rep was on his first ever season and he was amzing! the owner dimitri seems a bit strange at first but he is only looking after everyone the best he can. hoping to get back out there this year but if not i will definitely be back next.

Room Tip: dionysos itself is better than dionysos 2.

1st time at dionysos apartments,but been to stalis a few times before. Always had a good time in stais thats why we keep coming back.The doinysos was the best accomodation we've stayed in, rooms spacious and clean as was the pool and outside area plenty of sunbeds for everyone. The staff were very friendly and made you feel welcome and couldn't do enough for you. Lots of the guests go every year which is always a good sign.We travelled with Thomas Cook, it was the reps 1st season and he was excellent, always came to talk to everybody to make sure you were having a good time. We will definately return here and would recomend it to others.

Been going to Stalis since 1984 and seen a lot of changes 1st stayed in Dionysos 2 which was one only places to stay in those days but what a wonderful view fell in love with place. And of course stayed with owner Dimitri who has become personal friend together with all family. He is a wonderful host but of course must get used to his ways. 1st time in Dionysos but is a nice away from bussle of main Stalis think road better that late nite noice of bars, and would go again to these apartments having stayed in over places around Stalis over the years thsi compares high on list of self catered apartments of area.
Another good place is Sergiani Apartments which is owned by his daughter the taverna there had to be one best places to eat in area but on higher price scale but worth the money it borers Malia and may be list on here under Malia.
Stalis overall is lovely place and all the locals are very friendly already booked to stay in Crete again nect September.

Just returned from a week long stay at Dionysos Apartments. Received a lovely welcome when we arrived, our room (number 56) was spotlessly clean, nice soft towels, hairdryer and a double bed, which is quite rare. Safe in room which costs 12 Euro's for the week. Shower was a bit temperamental, our advise let it run for a while before getting in,gives it time to warm up! Our balcony overlooked the pool which was nice and quiet as it was the last week of the season. A short walk from apartments to beach but be warned if you are 6ft or taller be careful walking through the underpass!!!! Supermarket next door, very handy. Enjoyed our stay and would love to go back again about the same time as it could be too busy in the height of the season. We found Demetrius and Vanessa friendly, Anna kept the whole place so clean and Jamie our Thomas Cook Rep was brilliant.

I stayed here for a week, at the end of the season and it was therefore very quiet. I had read previous reviews regarding the owner, so was prepared. Demitrious is basically what you could class as a 'grumpy old man'!! He is slightly deaf and that is why sometimes it would appear he is shouting at you! He wasn't present during most of the week so this wasn't a real problem. Please dont let this put you off staying here. However the beds could easily be a turning point! Oh my goodness, I didnt get one good nights sleep! Avoid room 55! The beds were extremely uncomfortable. And you only get a sheet to go over you, which ,personally, I need a slightly more substantial cover at night.
The pool area was fantastic, there are two computers for internet access, a pool table, a small collection of left behind books and a comfortable lounge area.
The television only has one channel that shows the occasional english programme or film. Cooking facilities are minimal, one saucepan, one frying pan, two hobs, cutlery for two. You will need to purchase your own toilet roll (which I thought was a bit odd).
These apartments are a great base for exploring, as long as your not into great service.
The rep was fantastic, cannot fault him in anyway.
