“Fantastic setting for great value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2012

We spent a wonderful holiday at Stavros Studios .
It's a quiet and relaxing environment with no strings attached . Although it is a rather small hotel and was fully booked most of the time we stayed there, we never had to look for a sunbed near the pool nor the beach .
The staff adores children which makes it a children's paradise .The restaurant serves great traditional dishes and has an exceptional setting alongside the beach .There are 2 supermarkets and a superb bakery in the vicinity and you have the possibility to rent scooters or bikes at the shop next to the first supermarket ( which we did twice and were very pleased with nearly new scooters and a good service )
The restaurant from the nearby hotel Eanthia Village is definitely worth a visit as well as the restaurant Small Paradise ( great food and exceptional service ! )
The only downside during our stay at Stavros Studios was the cleanliness of the pool . One of the children there and myself both had an ear infection probably due to a lack of maintenace of the pool .
Overall we had a terrific holiday here and can recommend this location to everyone who likes typical authentic places in beautiful Crete .

Just got back from staying in one of the studio apartments, wanted a quick week away from the rain ! had a wonderful time, we have decided its the next best thing to having your own private villa ( which we usually do) but at half the price ! so the facts are : Studio has large double bed, bathroom/shower basic but absolutely fine ! there is a small kitchen with 2 ring electric, microwave,electric kettle, toaster and fridge, so enough to rustle up breakfast and the odd snack. Table & chairs inside with a sofa bed that has a wall dividing it from the bedroom- back balcony with washing line, front patio with table and chairs- all very nice. Short walk through the garden to the pool which we had virtually to ourselves the whole week- Taverna- food is very nice a tad too "tourist Greek" they serve horrid white rolls with the food not the beautiful Greek loaves as usual- when I asked for Greek bread the waiter said yes this is Greek...very funny !!! but the food itself is very tasty and if you ask for something it will appear !(except Greek bread !) I asked for horta and got it from their kitchen garden so I am being "picky" saying its Tourist Greek but then they do have to cater for all tastes ! - then through the Taverna is a glorious beach with free shades and loungers- these were all empty most of the day, the beach is sandy/fine shingle and you can walk for miles!. There is a supermarket and bike hire shop within a 10 min walk, plus a bakery, walk a little further on 15 mins? and there is another large Hotel and supermarket- turn right here to the bus stop at the top 20-25 mins walk( does feel like more on a hot day !) you can then get the bus into Chania which takes about 35 mins to the main Terminus( you can also get the bus to the airport from here www.bus-service-crete-ktel.com and save yourself the cab fare ! bus is approx 2 Euro pp). Staff at Stavros are lovely,unobtrusive and laid back. If you wanted to explore more of Crete then I would suggest either hire a bike or car depending on how far you want to go, if you are content with the odd bus trip its all very "doable" by bus with a little effort! - to sum up perfect for a quick laid back week or 2 !

After staying in Athens for 2 nights we visited Chania for two weeks. This was our first visit to Crete and Chania and we loved it. The island is just great! We stay at Stavros Villas in Gerani which is 15 - 25 minutes outside Chania town. Great place as it was our starting point for our day trips. We visited most of the sights and beaches in Chania. You need to hire if you would like to visit the south part of the island and explore. Overall a great stay, the rooms where clean and nice, the food by the restaurant was great and the sea quiet and sandy. It was great coming back after a long day and dip in the sea watching the sunset!

Room Tip: We booked a studio which is good for two people.

Visited Stavros Villas again this year for a short week and loved it . I did visited a few years ago with a friend and we loved it, we had a great time. So when I booked again this year I wasn't sure what to except. I stayed in one the apartments which was great and the family and staff where very friendly and really cared for theirs guest. For me the best thing was the sunbeds by the sea, I was the first one there and the last one to leave! Really loved it!

We visited Stavros villas last year in September and we truly had a great stay. The location is great as the sea is very near it's very relaxing if you have a kid as there are no cars to worry. The food in the restaurant was great and the people that run it very friendly. We loved the sea, watching the sunset while our little was playing on the sand! Looking forward for our next holiday there.

A simple, unpretententious, immaculately clean and beautiful base for a family holiday. The proximity of the chalets to the pool & beach (two sandy coves within 100 metres) means that you can walk from your room to the shore within seconds. Our family group ranged from 90 years old to 11 and we were all blissfully happy. Maria is a brilliant cook and the whole place is welcoming, simple and utterly delightful. Prices are honestly tailored to a comfortable, but not swanky, environment but the location and service deserves more than you will pay. We loved this place.

The accommodation is quite basic - it's rubbish if it's not nice weather because there's not really anything nice in the studio! But perfectly fine for sleeping, washing and preparing a salad. The Taverna is just lovely and the family are very friendly and helpful - and excellent cooks/front of house staff! The food is mostly meat (grilled, BBQd or oven baked) with delicious sauces and a choice of chips, potatoes or rice. They also do a mean mousaka. Fish on Fridays. The beach is nice - it's quiet-ness is it's best aspect. The sea is clean, decent waves and the beach has dark sand with pebbles. We spent every other day relaxing on the beach, and explored the island the rest of the time - easily done on the bus, a coach tour or with a car.
