We arrived and were given the keys to a room with two single beds (when we requested a double with the tour operator), but we were able to swap rooms with no hassle.
The hotel itself is about ten minutes walk from the main centre of Stalis. Stalis has a sandy beach with clear waters, lots of tavernas, shops, etc. The hotel is modern and clean. The swimming pool area is very good - there were only about 26 rooms in the hotel, so we never struggled to get a sunbed and were usually the only ones in the pool! the room has everything you need. I would recomend paying the 5 euros per day for the air con because it is just too hot! Make sure you know how to use the air con... we had it on hot one night by mistake! The TV only had one English channel - world news. It had German MTV which had a lot of english programes with subtitles so you could still watch that sometimes.
Towels were changed every second day and the cleaner did a great job.
In the Evening Manos looks after the hotel. He makes amazing cocktails! He's a lovely guy and made our evenings... well worth a drink and a chat with him!
Theres a supermarket over the road for anything you need.
Overall a fantastic holiday, had an amazing time, Manos makes the hotel!
