Stayed here family of 9 in 2rooms, rooms where decent size all seemed well when arrived clean sheet and towels with no holes(as had read a lot about in reviews) travel cot was made up on arrival as had 8month old. Downside was in the 2weeks we were there sheet only changed twice and when they were the were stained and holey, towels when changed were thread bare. The cleaner was lazy never even swept or cleaned the floors. Sun loungers falling to pieces if they upgraded the easiest of thing e.g. Towels,sheets,sun lounger (maybe the cleaner). These would have got a 5* review. Like a say tho lovely family decent apartments with great pool

Having spent two weeks here Irini and her family couldn't have been friendlier or have done more for us. From looking up bus times, suggesting places to visit or providing items for our room the service has been great. The apartments are clean and spacious, the pool is inviting and it is situated in central Stalis, near to bus stops and excursion pick up points. After having a fantastic time we are already planning to return next year.

Stalis on Crete is great for everyone. Plenty to do and see. Loads of tavernas and restaurants. You'll need a few weeks to try them all. Irilena is a very friendly place to stay. With great pool and pool bar, air con and safe, only a hundred metres or so from a large supermarket and the sea but in a quiet location. Bus stops to Heraklion and Malia very close by. Am a discerning traveller of many years, many places and hotels but always come back to Irilena.

Room Tip: Some apartments face the pool, all are good.

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.
