We love this place due to its quiet location and yet easy level access to beach, shops and tavernas, however returning this year for our fourth stay it was disappointing to find that very little maintenance had been done to the outside since our last stay in 2015, the pool area is now looking very shabby and needs repainting and new sun loungers!
The accommodation is large and airy, very basic with a double electric hob, sink, fridge and essential pots and cutlery (toaster/kettle on request). they are clean, the bathroom has the traditional hand held shower and no curtain. The cleaners only come in every two to three days (and this was always a bit hit and miss, which is not good as the bins need emptying daily), linen was changed three times during our two week stay (although when we asked for more towels they were provided instantly), the beds are firm but very comfy and unusual for Greece there is a plentiful supply of hot water.
Anna (the owner) is as lovely as ever always trying to respond to any requests (if you need something just ask).
If you want basic peaceful accommodation with a very friendly and helpful host at a very good price (and what more would you want in Wonderful Crete) -- This Is The Place To Come -- We will be back soon, and hope that some exterior maintenance has been done as it would be a shame for this place to go downhill.

We stayed here 15th May 2017 and I am sad to say was very disappointed We arrived at 23.30 and no one around eventually an elderly appeared who we now know was the Proprietor.

Our Apartment wasn't ready so was put into a Studio with no means to make a drink cooker not working.

Next day around 15.00 hours our apartment was ready.

The apartment was ok but that's where it ended, the bed linen and towels were holey and threadbare, the pillows were so used they were almost non existent and when I looked inside the pillowcase the pillows were very very stained, the kitchen was very poorly equipped and left a lot to be desired, we had to ask for a kettle and there was no toaster.

The shower wasn't attached to the wall had to shower holding it in your hand, if the sun did not shine you had no not water as the water was governed by the sun!
The cheap patio chairs were so old they were riveted together, the sun lounger at the pool were ripped and not fit for purpose, the pool bar was closed and the ice cream freezer was empty.

There was also lots of maintenance being carried out such as plastering large holes and painting walls. The maid came in every 2 days and you had to make do with one toilet roll for 2 people for 2 days! If you hire a car there is no park at the apartments.
We have been to Stalks on several occasions and this has been our worst experience for accommodation.

Great location, short walk to beach and to city center.
Our room was big, white and clean. Cleaner came every second day.
The towels and bed sheets was very holey and threadbale. The pillow was very small. Matress was terrible.
Pool was nice and clean, but sunbeds had lots of rips.

currently staying at the apartments , been here for 4 days still no pool or wifi .... keep being told it will be sorted tomorrow but that never comes. I have had to pay for a lovely pool and beach at Summertime which is excellent value, but i wish i had booked somewhere else as this is the third time in 2 years we have been to Stalis and this is the first negative experience we have had.

We have stayed at the IRILENA about 3 times in the last 2 years and have always been made feel like one of the family. Anne is a lovely Lady and so our her daughters, they can't do enough for you.it is very near the puds and plenty of all to do but it is so quite as well we did not hear any noise from anywhere around.
