Little apartments that surround a wonderful pool in a very small village gives the most peaceful and restful holiday. Whilst the apartments are small, they have everything you need and the furnishings and beddings are of excellent quality. Greeted by the host, who also took us out for a wonderful traditional meal, this really is a gem of a place.... More

Our apartment had 3 balconies, all with different views, over the pool, the countryside, and with a distant sea view. Beautifully clean, compact but with all you need for a great stay. There is no TV - which we found perfect. The other guests staying had returned for many years, and I think we will too. The apartments are a... More

If you're in Chania, or Pano Stalos, Hotel Orestis is a great place to stay. It's a bit of a drive off the highway, about 6 minutes up the hill. The host is a great gentleman! The suites are very well kept, the views, the fresh air, just fabulous. The pool was great too. There's a great restaurant just down... More

Hotel orestis is set in the small town of stalos (not a lot in stalos) which has a great bus system. The grounds are beautiful as is the pool. We stayed in the family unit which is a little dated but very comfortable and spacious. The shower was very difficult to manage, was over the bath with nowhere to mount... More

Comfortable place if you want to stay away from the crowd. The place offers everything you need, even for spending a full day on the premises. Credits go to owner Platon for what he has achieved. Although it somewhat remote, you find lovely restauarants on a walking distance, also small supermarkets.

Great apartments in Pano Stalos. The village is 5 min away from the more crowded area at the beach, and about 15 min from Chania making it a perfect place for a bit more relaxed vacation.

My husband and I arrived here last night, after worrying about the news of the Greek economic crisis, and wondering whether to cancel our trip from the USA to Crete.
