Where should I and my boyfriend stay in Crete?

My boyfriend and I would really like to travel to Crete, but we don’t actually know in which part of Crete to go to, what would you recommend?

We are a young couple, in our early 20’s and we would like to find a good hotel, maybe a resort, situated in a nice area. A town/village with fun activities to do, good food, water activities, sandy beaches(it s a must) and a very fun atmosphere. We would like to travel to santorini on one of those days (maybe you will make some recommendations about that as well)

If flying in to Heraklion have a look at Stalis or for either airport Rethymnon both are quite different but check out both :-)

Stalis would suit. Lively without being rowdy.

I think Stalis would definitely be the best option for you.

Yes it has a huge long sandy beach which is lined with bars and tavernas, I suggest doing some you tube searches for Stalis that way you can see if it's right for you

Stalis would also be a good location if you do decide to travel to Santorini, as you leave from the port of Heraklion, lots of people do the day trip to Santorini, but it's very expensive for just a few hours on the island, it's going to be six hours travelling, I would search some reviews of day trips to get an idea, we have stayed on Santorini and it's beautiful but not done a day trip.
