We don't usually stay in small hotels but the Anastasia has changed my attitude completely. What a treat to be treated by the staff as one of the family and to be looked after properly by people who take a real pride in their work.
Crete is a long flight with small children (ours are 3 and 7) but it was well worth it and the kids loved the kids club run by the absolute star - Johnny. An absolute joy for the kids and real fun in the evenings when he ran the quizzes and bingo (can't believe I played bingo AND actually enjoyed it). Karaoke night was a real party.
If you are a 'Brit abroad' this is not for you - they serve real greek food !! But if, like me - you eat enough English food in England and go on holiday to experience another culture then you'll like it here. Stalis is a typical small greek resort set along a busy street. Malia is hell on earth - if you're over 21 don't even think about going there.
Rooms are basic, clean and spacious. The whole hotel is centred around the pool, ar and kids club so very private and enclosed.
My daughters want to send their love to Johnny and are still nagging me to book again for next year so that they can see him. If you're reading this Johnny - Caitlin and Sophie send their love xx
See you next year I hope
