‏This hotel is the best vacation for a couple! ‏We stayed in the “premium swim up room” and we took the all inclusive package. The room was beautiful than the pictures, an also the hotel itself. The room was clean and the minibar was fool of drinks and every day refilled. ‏The staff is very very kind and helpful, especially Eleni from the guest relations. She was nice and friendly from the moment we walked in. Pari, the front office manager took care of us as a family member. And Gorge the manager of the hotel made this an unforgettable vacation. ‏There are 4 restaurants in the hotel that you need to book. The bars by the pools was very nice, great food, cocktails and drinks and the service - OMG. And you have to do the hot stone massage in the spa! ‏We will definitely come back to this piece from paradise.

This was our second stay at Stella Island & it truly was as amazing as the first time we went. From the time of booking (I do it direct with the hotel) to getting picked up at the airport, to check in, our stay & leaving, everyone & everything made our holiday so special. We upgraded our room this time to a room with a private pool & it was so worth it! We ate dinner there some nights and it was so pretty - all lit up & seeing the sunset and all the trees. The food was excellent - we have had a bad experience with all inclusive in Mexico but here the buffet food is delicious, pool food excellent (the burger, the Greek salad & chicken gyros especially) and the al a carte restaurants were incredible! Our favourite was the Asian & Steak. The New Mexican restaurant has a greet menu and great party atmosphere with singers & a DJ some nights. Oceania has spectacular views and all the desserts were all delicious! And now, the most important part… the staff! They could not do enough for you! They all work tirelessly to make sure you have a good time and nothing is too much trouble. Thanks to Anastasia, the Service Manager, Irini & Anna who served us drinks all day and Mariana front of house and all the other wonderful staff we met. The hotel grounds are amazing, comfy sun beds & everywhere is so clean & immaculate. If you are looking to book - do it!!

We stayed for 8 nights in a premium swim up room with the all inclusive Package. The room was spacious and spotless. We can’t compare but we felt like having the swim up room was really worth it - we had a lovely private deck where we could get tanned or get in the pool to swim to the adjacent Umbra bar for frozen coffee or drinks! The food at Stella Island was outrageously good! Especially at the a la carte restaurants, every single dish was top notch, even all vegan / vegetarian options! For our stay, we could try each of the five a la carte restaurants once - so we were glad to stay a few more days! The first few days, we went to the main restaurant for breakfast then we switched to La Parilla, because it was less crowded and felt very familial there (plus the Chef there really didn‘t save the cheese on our daily Omelettes! Moreover, there was Petros the cat!). With regard to the service, we were very good taken care of! Rania, Natasa & Yannis at Umbra bar and Athanasia, Anastasia, Giorgos & Vasilis at La Parilla and Konstantinos, Stefanis & Lamprini at Kimata (and so many more, whom I couldn‘t catch the names of) were so hospitable and very committed to fulfill every of our wishes! Also at all the other restaurants and bars, the staff was very friendly, fast and professional - you could really tell they enjoyed their work. We also used the gym every day - it is very well equipped and they offer free classes like Pilates, Aqua Gym, Circuit Training (thank you, Christina!!) every day. Due to Covid, we had to book our work out time in advance, but with the hotel app it was quite easy. The only thing that you could complain about is the beach. Right in front of the resort, the beach is rather rocky - not really where you would wanna swim. But just a few minutes east or west are nice sandy beaches with perfectly clear blue water.

Ny husband and I booked our 1.5 week trip to stella island for our honeymoon, which was rescheduled from last year’s cancellation due to covid; however, it was well-worth the wait! The staff were all so unbelievably kind and welcoming. Everyone we interacted with at Stella Island went above and beyond to make sure that every minute of our stay was nothing short of perfect. We also absolutely LOVED the private villa and pool which allowed us some down time on days when we wanted to just relax alone together. I am a vegetarian; however, each restaurant had plenty of options for every meal, each of which did not disappoint! We did not think that we could love this place anymore than when we arrived and saw how beautiful the resort was; however, the food and the people at Stella Island made our trip truly unforgettable. Thank you for making our honeymoon worth the wait! It exceed all expectations! We will absolutely be back again <3

This luxury hotel whilst situated in Crete has aspirations (justifiably) to be an indulgent Maldives resort. And it succeeds on many levels. After a little bit of a shaky start involving a rather long check-in procedure following a lengthy day of travel, matters quickly improved. Our "over-water bungalow with jetted hot tub" was beautiful. Very nicely appointed and the decked terrace was certainly big enough to count as an extra room. All rooms are connected by water and it's very easy to go for a swim around the meandering waterways and reach a bar or restaurant. There are five a la carte restaurants, including a buffet facility - all differently themed. We particularly enjoyed the Asian restaurant and the new Mexican with a fantastic night club. You can also find a number of bars serving superb cocktails and wines - which, if you opt for all-inclusive (as we did) represent brilliant value. I have saved a review of the staff 'til the end - not because it's unimportant, but because it's Stella Islands' crowning glory. Quite simply....they are all magnificent! I wish I could mention them all, but can't remember all their names. Thank you to all the bar staff (incredible), waiters/waitresses (amazing), housekeepers (fantastic) and to the managers/owner/PR lady who looked after us as though we were family. We now feel like we are. Stella Island also proved to be the perfect romantic venue for a proposal.
