Stayed at Stella Maris for 18 nights, September to October. Found this hotel because other places I have stayed in were fully booked. I was not disappointed as this is a modern and very clean hotel. The staff are very polite, friendly and helpful. The resturaunt is excellent, although not very big. It is in a quiet location, and I would recommend hiring a car, but there a a few resturaunts and bars a couple of minutes walk away. Ten minutes walk to Falasia beach, although there are steep wooden steps to negotiate which can be a problem for the elderly or infirm. The hotel is popular with sports people, and bicycles can be hired from reception. There is a running track at the hotel, and a 'roped off' trail in a forested area next to the hotel. Only downside I found was the noise from adjoining rooms. The rooms and hotel corridors are all tiled, and you can hear other guests quite clearly. The noise can be disturbing late at night or early morning. Rooms themselves are quite spacious, with a good sized balcony, but with a few little snags. There was no full-length mirror, which ladies may find annoying when dressing for going out. Only one electric point at 'work surface' level in kitchenette, which kettle, toaster etc have to fight over. Tv's are old Grundig analogues, but receive BBC 1! Had to ask for extra coat hangers at reception as only a couple in wardrobes. Two wardrobe drawers faulty and a bulb not working in bedside lamp etc. All not very important, but could so easily be 'sorted' before checking guests in. All in all, a nice hotel and I would stay here again.
