Clare visited here on August 2009
We found Stalis to be reasonably clean although we did notice many over-spilling rubbish bins but generally it was ok and we did see several street cleaners about.
As for entertainment there was plenty about if you wanted it. At night we would go for a nice meal and can highly reccommend Maria\'s, Hellas and especially 9 Muses.
The beach was clean, very busy and with plenty of watersports.

Heaney family visited here on July 2009
Stalis was clean and friendly with quiet tavernas, bars and clubs, perfect for families and a nice alternative to the rowdy Malia.
Beach was lovely, the general area could have been cleaner though we weren\'t sure if this was down to tourists or the locals with litter dotted everywhere.

stalis is very noisy with quad bikes up and down beach road all day and night but there are plenty of bars and resteraunts that offer good value for money food. The beaches are first class and cleaned daily.
Lots of nick nack shops if you like collecting souvenirs

Mr Ralph visited here on July 2009
Stalis - Aprt from dodging the Quad bikes this is an Excellant base to exployer the Isle of Crete.
The Main street has a ban on Quads after 7 oclock..

It has plenty of Bars to try - Vilisakis Bar was one we spent many hours in, Manos and his family even organised a BBQ for us to sample a BBQ Greek style.

On the main street - Minos eating house was one of the best we found for quaility food and for the entertainment value - Billy the Greek (a dead ringer for a Jerry Springer looky likey) had the pleasure of our company most nights . After several Rakis then Ouzo you stagger off back to your hotel.
Cost of ...
food is roughly the same in any of the bars and Restraunts, and every taste is catered for so something for everyone.

Beach was clean and not a rip off - 3 euros for all day use of 2 sunbeds and a table & Umbrella.. Bargain !!h

Malia the lively part of Crete is just 5 mins on the bus. If you are a people watcher then this is the place to go .. I will say no more
The place still pumps out music until 5 in the morning and people staggering home in wee hours is most common.

Take the Happy Train in to the mountains this is well worth the trip ( but watch out for the old guy that sells you Raki instead of water )

Stalis is a lovely resort with plenty of eating places. It was fairly quiet when we were there from 02/06 to 17/06 2009. The \"Amici\" Italian at the other end of resort is excellent as is \"Sergiani\" and \"Anytime\" but we never had a bad meal anywhere.

Grandison visited here on May 2009
The resort is on one road called Beach Road and all the bars and restaurants are here. The beach is clean and tidy and has some water sports. Quite a few bars and restaurants are on the beach side which is great for a nice view. The Africa bar is our favourite and its worth a visit. Malia and Hersonossis are within easy reach by either walking or bus. The resort is busy but not as busy as Malia and caters more for couples and families.

Stalis is a nice beach location, with lots of bars and taverna`s, maria`s golden beach has outstanding food and staff, malia old village has some lovely old bars( basically a house with chairs outside) and some nice tavernas(san georgio) is lovely. hersonnisis is a very busy and lively area with some nice beaches and a nice little harbour, agous nikolous has a buitifull harbour, and if you have time spinalonga(saw some flying fish on the boat trip going to spinalonga) is not to be missed.

The resort of stalis is based on one main road, it is kept clean but suffers from graffitti as does most fo crete.

crete is a beautiful island and its inhabitants are extremely friendly. A must visit is Aghios Nicalaos, Spinalomgs, Knossos palace, rethymno, and Irakeleo.

Tosh visited here on September 2008
Stalis is a resort that has everything for every taste.
The beach is usually within easy reach from which ever hotel you are staying in.
Try the Minos restaurant and ask to see the desserts, you\'re in for a surprise.
Also the Creta Palace supermarket which is owned by a great guy called Costas and is lovely wife.
There are many places of historical and local interest to visit
Always found the local people to be very friendly and helpful, even when trying to speak their native tongue.
Pity something can\'t be done about the quad amd motor bikes thst make life a misery when trying to walk on the beach road.
Select the time you wish to go very carefully, then you should miss all the brain dead idiots that like to amalgamate in Malia.

shirley and Andrew visited here on August 2008
In our opinion Stalis was miles better than Malia. The beach road was lined with restaurants and bars, both traditional Greek and British. We had the best of both worlds - Great Greek cuisine where we practised our smattering of Greek and good old British entertainment when we fancied a change. There were quizzes, Karaoke nights and live music, alongside tavernas and coctail bars.

The beach is narrow but clean and well equiped with sunbeds and umbrellas. Depending on which part of the strip you went the prices varied between 5 and 6 euros for 2 beds and an umbrella. There were also beach showers and where we were we had the use of the hotel bar and swimming pool. ...
The sea could get a bit rough as most days there was a good breeze but this made the waves all the more fun. It was quite rocky in places but as the sea was clear they could be easily avoided.

The resort was kept very clean. We enjoyed the Happy train which had a number of excursions on offer. One word of warning if you decide to take the bus anywhere- in our experience they weren\'t very reliable. We waited at the bus stop for an hour one evening for the bus to Agios Nickolaus, as we were told they went on the hour and half past the hour.Various buses past but not one stopped in the whole hour, so we never did get to Ag Nik - which was a shame. We made a good choice in picking Stalis.

Kevin & Helen Thomas visited here on August 2008
Stalis was a great resort in which to stay,comprising basically of one long strip along the beach road into Malia. It is not a resort that opens early, with most places starting to serve breakfast at around 9.30. A taxi to the furthest end of Stalis was 8 euros which was good value. There were loads of good quality restauarants and little eateries - Jasmine House (the chinese), Angelos, Zorbas to name a few. We didn\'t have a bad meal in the fortnight we were there. There were plenty of British style pubs - with quizzes, Karaoke etc.
We took the \"happy train\" to Krassi up in the mountains and spent a pleasant few hours there. We normally hire a motor ...
bike but found the roads too busy until you were out of the main resort.
There were several ways to go to the beach, which I admit is not the best I have seen. It is very rocky in places, and there are some large waves in the sea - the red flag was often flying.

Bill Williamson visited here on August 2008
This was our third time in Stalis and it is still a fantastic place to visit. There is plenty to do , it is safe for children. The places to eat and drink are fantastic with plenty to choose from and you are well looked after. Try Yannis, Maistraili, Roma and there are too many others to mention.
The water park is great but you do not have to go to the big on the reps tell you about you can go to the one at Kastelli. It only costs 22 euros that includes your transport from Stalis.
If uou have teenagers go through to Star Beach in Hersonnisis where they can go Go Karting, The Greek Night in the hills is ...
also good for a laugh especially if you want to Greek Dance.

Wendy visited here on August 2008
Stalis is what we expected. Very clean and tidy. Just enough bars and restaurants, not too noisy and not too busy. Lots of proper Greek restaurants serving really good food, no complaints at all. Beach clean, some parts sunbeds too close together. We found the best part in front of Mythos Bar, cost bit more but more space. Suprised how reasonable food and drink was. Got beer at euros 1.50, most we paid was 3 euros. Food we found to be very cheap and really tasty especially the traditional Greek food. Will visit again but not yet, like to try somewhere different next year.

D Martin visited here on August 2008
Stalis is fantastic for everyone who likes a more laid back holiday whereby if they want to eat out in a different place everynight {costs about 20-30 euros for 2 course meal with a few drinks} they can.

Drinks anything from 1.50 - 4 euros for a beer

Cocktails - 5 - 7 euros

Fried breakfast 3-7 euros


If they want to have a dance there a lots of lively bars and pubs

If they want to go hardcore and party/pull whatever they are 10 mins from Malia which has all that.

For couples and families this place is ideal - the beaches are good and theres plenty to do.

If your in your teens to early/mid 20\'s this may not be quite as lively as you ...
would like - but again Malia is close and costs around 15 euros each way in the taxis.

Although the rep gives you scare stories dont be afraid to rent a quad just remember these rules:

Dont drink and drive as remember most people who drive these bikes are wearing shorts so if a car hits you are you come off it it could be messy!

Remember to wear a helmet - Police are really clamping down on this now so if you use the bike to visit other resorts you will find police doing stop checks everywhere - I saw lots of holiday makers getting tickets due to not wearing their helmets etc

Make sure you get special full insurance - the clause in the contract states though that if you damage the bike you can pay between 25-250 euros for any damage

Remember only the name on the contract you sign is covered by the policy - so if your taking driving in turns make sure your the one on the bike if you have a crash lol

Remember most drivers of other countries are well below are own driving standards so give yourself plenty of time to brake as taxis and mopeds will cut you up on a regualr basis -

it may all sound risky above but this is just common sence and these bikes are the best way to visit near by resorts - just remember most holiday insurance policies do not cover you for accidents on you quade so be sensible.

You will have a great time and most weather sites which we checked before we left were all wrong - saying the weather would be 27-32 degrees - it was 40 -50 degrees while we were there so take a decent UV factor cream with you and enjoy

Overall are holiday was great - shame about BV
