My husband, friend and I stayed here for 2 weeks. We received a warm welcome form Margaret and Demetris on our arrival - which was rather late! They had arranged for a taxi to meet us at the airport. There was a bottle of wine in our room on arrival. The rooms were fine and the beds very comfortable. There were other extras too - safe in the room, air conditioning, water in the fridge, a bottle of olive oil, washing up liquid, tea towel, free internet/wi-fi... The standard of cleanliness was very high. The cleaner came every day, giving us clean towels and sheets every other day. Margaret and Dimitris were always available to give us advice. There is a bakery/mini-market next door and you can get beautiful fresh bread from early in the morning .We went over to the hotel across the road to the sunbed and the pool/beach.

I felt that we had the best of both world when staying in the Creta Solaris. It was lovely and quiet, rather than staying in a hotel, but we had the facilities of a hotel as well. We had a wonderful time in the Creta Solaris and I would have no hesitation in staying there again.

This was our second stay at these apartments. On arrival we were greeted by Margareta and Dimitris with the words 'welcome home' and a welcome bottle of wine. During our two week stay we also received occasional bowl of fruit. The sheets and towels were changed regularly and a high standard of cleanliness was maintained by the maid. The service was excellent and cannot be faulted.

The apartment is spacious with a kitchen (which is well equipped), living room, single bedroom, main bedroom with single beds which has a safe and air conditioning. The bathroom has a lovely walk in shower and there is always lots of hot water.

The apartments are set back from the main road with a service road inbetween. There is a bus stop opposite with a regular service to Heraklion or the other direction to Agios Nikolais. There is complimentary use of the facilities at the Blue Sea Resort opposite. Nearest beach is 10 minutes walk with usual sunbeds, umbrellas and watersports. There is a land train with trips along the coast and into the mountains, plenty of tavernas and restaurants offering traditional Greek foods and worldwide cuisine. There are many car hire companies with mopeds and quad bikes for hire.

This was a very enjoyable and relaxing holiday. The weather is usually sunny although can be a little windy. We found the Greek locals friendly and hospitable.

When appouching Creta Solaris four stars Appartment Hotel, Stalis on Creta you see a beatuful garden with lots of flowers in full bloom. The reception is comfortable and elegant also containing the bar.
The hotel has 13 fully equiped appartments with saftyboxes (easy to use) ond of course TV.The bathroom is beautiful and the showercabin very well-functioning. The appartments are of different sizes and each have a big balcony and of course aircondition as well.
The beach is very near together with restaurants and shops. Buses leave for both east and west every 15 minutes. Heraklion is 1 hour away for example.

Room Tip: I liked my romms on the west side very much

We spent a week at the Creta Solaris and it was one of the most laid-back and relaxing holiday experiences we have ever encountered. Arriving late in the evening we were greeted by Christine who with the minimum of fuss and with quiet charm and efficiency carried out the necessary formalities that so many hotels make such a song and dance over. We were delighted to find a welcoming fruit bowl and bottle of wine
and the fruit bowl was replenished during the week. Nice touch !
The appartment was exactly as represented in the website and everything was well presented and perfectly adequate for an enjoyable holiday experience. Daily cleaning was carried out as unobtrusively as everything else in this gem of an hotel. No-one ever came knocking on your door or intruded on your spaceseemed and yet owner Margaret was always there with any information or help you required. She exuded an air of calmness and serenity which set the atmosphere for the hotel ,unpretentious and friendly.
Stalida is a fine destination for those who are looking for a relaxing holiday but with Malia and Hersonnisos in such close proximity it certainly could not be considered as off the beaten track. It has a large selection of bars and restauants and the long sandy beach was ideal for water sports
I would have no hesitation in recommending Creta Solaris as a charming and relaxing base for a visit to beautiful Crete. I know we're already planning our next visit.

Creta Solaris ia well organized, clean, with very friendly people. The service is excellent and is ideal for rest and relaxation while at the same time is very close to Malia (night life) and to the coastal road of Stalida where restaurants, bars and sea sport facilities can be found.

Our group of 16th people ( 7 children from 9 to 12 and one 3 years old child) comprising basically of four families came to Crete from the very far Russian Far East ( Khabarovsk city). Crete is on the opposite side of the globe from our homes and so we tried to plan our two weeks vocation as thorough as possible making all the arrangements just by ourselves. We wanted to have good level of comfort of our staying and also do not exceed the reasonable level of our families’ budgets. The key aspect was to find the place of our staying and after having searched the internet we found Creta Solaries Apartments Hotel matching our initial requirements. Upon arrival our expectations of the hotel were exceeded and none of our group stayed unsatisfied. The hotel has its concept and every corner of it is wisely planned. Nice kept lawn in front, various ways to get into the building and rooms (we found it very convenient), surrounding trees and bushes add the feeling of isolation besides necessary shadow during the day time and of course, they were nice examples of Cretan flora for us.
Rooms have its style and comfort, enough space to place our stuff, a safe, clean sheets being changed every day, TV set with all main multinational channels to choose from (two Russian channels), one or two air conditioners or a ceiling fan in each apartment. Every day, we had clean and dry towels and unlimited hot and cold water in a shower due to the fact that overall hotel infrastructure is quite reliable. We would not pay attention to this fact but from the contacts with other tourists from various hotels we realized that occasional power shut downs and lack of water or limitation is not a rare thing in Crete. For those spouses who wanted to demonstrate his or her cooking abilities during the vocation, well equipped kitchen was its service with all the necessities making us feel like at home. Need to say that we could find all fresh ingredients in the nearby shops to make even Russian “borsh”. It was very convenient to be able to have a very early or very late cup of coffee or some omelets for breakfast not sticking to any schedule and then have rather big choice of cafe and taverns for lunch and dinner.
The Creta Solaries hotel has quite good location in many ways. It’s only five minutes to walk from the nice beach with clean waters and with enough shallow part of the sea for our children to play and swim safely. There is some kind of arrangements between Creta Solaries and Blue Sea hotel that is located along the beach and we could use their infrastructure like swimming pool (FOC) and beach bars and other facilities. From our town Stalida, we could quickly reach other interesting places like Lassity plato, Saint Nikolas city, Heracklion and even southern parts of Crete.
The hotel is run by Dimitries and Margareta Prevezanos , they were both very hospital and attentive to our needs and friendly to our children which organized couple of times quite a noisy game parties running around the hotel. All recommendations given by courtesy hosts from a right place for a sightseeing or best taverns or good company to rent the cars were the best match as time had shown. Now after several weeks after coming back home, all our families have nothing but very warm and good memories of the hotel, Dmitries and Margareta and the hotel and of course Crete and Cretans!
