“Excellent location, excellent staff (family), basic rooms.”
Reviewed 27 May 2011

We stayed in a pair of adjoining 1-bed apartments with our daughter's family. The beach-side location was stunning (as were the sunsets over the poolside cafe). The owner welcomed us with warm enthusiasm, and his family (daughter Marie, her husband and children) made us feel very much at home. She is such a good cook!!!

A tiny beach less than two minutes walk away provided many happy hours for us (and the grand-daughter), and the Tavern on the beach provided the most excellent coffee (ask for 'Nescafe' and make sure that nobody except Nico makes it). Took a trip by bus to Chania (2.10 Euros each way). Bus stop is 15 mins walk away, near to the two Supermarkets). Drove to the Monaseries in the mountains - good trip.

Only real downside (apart from the basic nature of the accommodation) was the mossies. I was eaten alive!! Must make sure that you take precautions - use the mossie-net over the beds, and the plug-in oojits (get refills from Mrs Anna). Citronella candles on the balcony would be useful, as would Boots Soltan sun lotion with insect repellent.

Apart from that, I am looking forward to another visit to Stavros.

George L, General Manager at Zorbas Beach Village Hotel, responded to this review, 16 February 2012
These guests knew that the swimming pool operated from the end of April and this was due to weather conditions. We refer this information to all adverts on internet pages. They never asked how the air condition remote control works, if they had problem with that, and of course the room was not dirty!
