“Stalis is lovely but Rainbow needs improvements”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014 via mobile

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Stalis. Rainbow Apartments were clean but very basic, the rooms needed a lot of work doing. We were very disappointed that you had to pay for Air Con as the rooms were extremely hot and we struggled without it. The pool was relatively small and shadowed. The bar staff (Eddie and Netti) were extremely friendly and organised entertainment most evenings. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and think that with a bit of refurbishment, Rainbow could have great potential! We would recommend hiring a quad bike and visiting neighbouring towns (maybe not Malia!)

Stayed May 2013, traveled as a couple

The best rooms we have stayed in anywhere in the Greek Islands.Very modern and spacious.
Rooms and grounds spotlessly clean.
Quick walk to the main beach road with lots of places to eat.Lovely walk up the hill at the side of the hotel to see the view over the whole of Stalis.
B.B.Q. night was good value with lots of salad and too much meat to eat.The home made burgers were delicious.

Me, my husband and daughter stayed for a week 12th 0ctober 2013. What a great place to stay. Room was lovely very spacious and clean. Close to the shops, restaurants and beach. The staff are brilliant, really friendly and we had an excellent time. Stalis itself was getting a bit quiet, a lot of places were closing as the end of the season, but we were aware of this before we went. The weather was still warm about 25/26. We will definitely stay here again. FAB.....

My husband and I have jus returned from our 2nd stay at Rainbow, once again the apartment was lovely, clean and spacious. The pool is a good size, good food is available from the pool bar, where BBQs take place once a week. The bar in reception is excellent, good prices and excellent service at all times. I have nothing negative to say about Rainbow, I just cannot believe I have found somewhere so nice.

I am always a little nervous choosing accomodation, but this exceeted expectations. The appartments are value for money, clean and spacious. The pool is a good size and in mid October, the water was a lovely temperature. The sunbeds where good too. I never like the plastice ones that don't lie completely flat - as they make it hard to lie on your front. These where great.
The staff where helpful, friendly and funny :-) They have optional events some evenings which are great fun - (Ever played crazy Greek Bingo???) Cocktails at the bar where quite resonable too.
A truely excellent stay. Thank you.
(I have rated the restaurant as very good - really it is just a snack bar - but it was still good.

Room Tip: Room 106 is over the bar and can get a bit noisy.
