We stayed in Stalis last year and enjoyed it that much we decided to book again but somewhere more central.
The Anemi is attached to the Rose and Crown. This is a small collection of apartments over 2 levels, we had a 2 first floor studio apartment just above the pool area. The apartments are fairly basic but was clean and presentable, very similar to most Greek apartments.
Our room had a double bed and a single bed. The apartment was equipped with a fridge, kettle, toaster and a portable 2 ring hob. We didn't cook in the room but some families that were there at the same time as us did manage to cook.
Air conditioning is available but is quite pricy @ 8 euros a day. We did have 1 room air conditioned as it was very hot. A couple we had met though bought a large pedestal fan at a local supermarket for only 25 euros, so do consider before you purchase the air conditioning.
Pool Area was quite small and not really suitable for any boisterous behaviour. Unfortunately for us there was a group of lads in during our 2nd week who insisted in having a mad hour, throwing each other in etc. If you stayed round the pool area during this time you would get drenched! Please ot also, especially if you're bringing young children, the pool is very deep, 1.6m in the shallow end and 2.7 meters in the deep end.
There is no pool bar but you can order food from the Rose and Crown should you wish to eat round the pool. The snack menu was quite limited though also prices were cheaper in other restaurants.
The plus side of no pool bar was that you could take your own drinks etc to the pool area, no one really monitored the pool.
Location of the apartments was right o the beach road headig up towards Malia. In fact for us on the downside was that there were several groups of youngsters who came in late and quite often drunk as Malia is only a 15 minute walk away.
Our favourite bar was the Melia Bar in the centre of Stalis run by Demitri, only 1.50 euros for a large beer.
Favourite restaurant was Marias Golden Beach, which was further down, heading towards Hersonnissos.
Holiday was very relaxing but would consider staying further away from Malia. Don't object to the groups but do prefer a quieter scene. The apartments were of a good standard and kept clean. Cleaners came every other day and we had our sheets changed 3 times during two weeks and the towels were changed regularly.
