Have stayed in the Setfania again, for the 6th time, I think, and enjoyed it again.
have always had a great time there, and have had many a lovely measl and good beer and craic there with all my Greek family and friends.

The staff are great and also look after us very well, have recomended it to many friends, who also found it a great place to stay in Crete.

Will be back, Dave & Carmel

We as a family have stayed here before, and from reading the last review Sarah M must have stayed some where else, the family are welcoming, helpfull and have nothing but the height of respect and loyalty for their customers.We had never reason to complain about the rooms as they were cleaned daily with clean towels and sheets, if we ever needed assistance for our room we only had to ask and it would be done asap. The entertainment was provided to suit the customers with mighty portions of all the greek food at the barbeque there was no shortage there whats so ever. (well worth €20) With greek dancing and karakoe to follow into the early hours of the morning, brillant nights and always something to look forward to.. As regards to the family been obnoxious that baffles us as they treated us and the rest of their clientelle as their own family, like i said they were nothing but welcoming, warming, helpfull and always had a smile on their faces aswell as our's.. We are shocked at the negative comments that have been wrote, but as the saying goes you cannot please everyone..We would to thank Yannis (which is his name), Maria, George,Stephaine,Sophia and Manoussis for the wonderful hospitality and rememberal nights that we had.. Maria like our mother, George like our father, Yannis the perfect gentleman, what can we say, our family...A home away from home what more could you want..See you's soon :) x Treavor, Jackie & Shannon x

My wife and I have been coming to Crete for the last 20 years. Finding the Stephania Apartments 8 years ago was the best thing that ever happened to us. We have never stayed in a dirty apartment. In fact the opposite is true. The family go out of their way to make every guest feel welcome regardless of whether you choose to hang around the apartments every day or just use them as a base to sleep. I cannot understand how Sarah M feels she was ripped off at the barbeque as there is always more than enough to eat and drink. Yanni will stay in the bar all night even if there is only one person there to be served. Stefanie is really good fun and maybe Sarah M just does not appreciate her sense of humour. I hope her review does not put anyone off staying in these apartments. We would'nt dream of staying anywhere else. Seamus H

Don't know where that Sarah is on about
But me and my wife and 2 girls have have bin staying at stefania for the last 5 year's and every year it just gets better
U couldn't meet a more accommodating family than yanni sofi and stefania. What can say about the Greek night nine courses and all the wine u can drink for 20 euro kids eat for free by the way.
Have 2 say yanni is a top man 2 years ago my daughter had her 5th birthday their and they had a kid's party for her they got the cake and balloons all free.
Looking forward 2 next year. Gim mas

The Stefania is Reasonably priced, very central, opposite the beach, the Diamantakis family are very welcoming and accommodating; they are dry witted and humorous. Sofia and Maria are excellent cooks and Yiannis is a personable host. His sister Stefania is sarcastic and outrageous - good fun. The pool area is attractive and well maintained by dad George.
There is a busy road to the rear of the apartments which I personally would not like to overlook as I hate traffic noise. they are a fine size though and otherwise good. However, the one bed apartments and studios overlooking the pool and the beach road are nice.
Overall, I think the Stefania lives up to its rating on Tripadvisor and I am happy to recommend it as a reasonably priced, simple and central location for a holiday in Stalis.

Just back from a fab week in the stefania apartments, such a brilliantly run family business, wonderful hospitality and they could not do enough for us, from breakfast in the morning with sophia and Maria, to bar entertainment in the with Yanni (and ever so cute dog Leo) and the ever so funny Stefania herself, very clean and quiet, would definetly recommend to any couple or family wanting a relaxed hoilday.Can understand why people go beck to it every year, we certainly will.
