“Lovely apartments, great staff”
Reviewed June 5, 2013

These apartments are just across the road from the main bars and restaurants of Stalis. The rooms are clean and spacious and there is a balcony from both the bedroom and the lounge. The road is busy but there are lots of safe places to cross. The staff are really friendly and there is a great pool with a snack bar and then a small main bar with inside and outside seating after 9pm. There is a supermarket right next door that sells most things for a self catering holiday. The rooms have a safe and you can pay locally for air conditioning, 7 euros a day. We will definitely come back here again.

Room Tip: Maybe one away from the road if you struggle to sleep at night, although you will lose out on the wo...

Just got back from a 2week stay at Rainbow apartments. I have to say these are the best we've stayed in and like most people we spoke to will definitely be going back...
The room was spacious and the bathroom was 5 star for Greece.
The people we met were great as were the staff Eddie, Florin and Nettee, also Jackie the cook. Maria and her family keep the hotel and grounds immaculate.
We had room 312 which is just near the pool bar and as this was only open 2 evenings a week there wasn't much noise. Altho to be honest we was probably one's that did make the noise along with the 6 ladies from liverpool (you know who you are lol) and anne-marie, they led me and my husband astray the first week but it was brilliant. We did have a couple of late nights tho the 2nd week with Danny and Adele but hey, we're on holiday :)

You wasn't forced to join in any of the vening activities but to be honest, it's a nice way of getting to know people if you join in. We missed the BBQ night due to me having too much sun, but because we had already paid, Florin brought our food to the room along with a carafe of wine & I must say the food was lovely.

We ate in various places during our 2 weeks stay. Maria's is just over the road at the bottom of the street. Cheapest meal we had and it was very nice. Lovely people work there and make you fell very welcome.
Some of the other restaurants we ate in have been mentioned but I don't recall seeing Ocean mentioned. We only went there the night before we came home as it was recommended to us and it was lovely. Even got a free Cocktail, I wish we'd gone before.

Breakfast we mostly had in the pool bar but I must just say avoid Dwyers Irish bar for breakfast. It was the dearest and not the best that we had. Coffee wasn't included so it made a 8 euro breakfast for 2 into 15. Also most places if you had breakfast you got free sunbeds, not here. We had to pay another 4 euros for them.

The only downside to the trip is getting pesterred by the men on the restaurants but that happens everywhere and the women on the fish spas.

All in all tho we can't wait to go back

Room Tip: Ask for one of the superior as they are more spacious than the standard rooms. I think they are Bloc...

These apartments are set back a short distance from the road but you cant hear the traffic . Clean in all areas, apartment,pool and the public areas. Nice little supermarket next door and the selection and prices were good. Just for a change we were at place that all the folk staying there had nothing but good things to say about it. Highly Recommended by our family. Thank you Maria .

This is the second time we have stayed at Rainbow and were not disappointed. The reception area has haad a bit of a revamp and looks very modern!! The rooms are clean and modern with plenty of space with a large balcony area.

There is a shop next door but within 5 minutes you are on the strip where there is a larger 'supermarket' and all the normal shops and restaurants.

I would definitely recommend these apartments to anyone.
