Dias Hotel & Apartments
Ranked #11 of 52 Hotels in Stalis
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 19 October 2011

Stayed at the Dias with my boyfriend is September 2011. On checking in it was the early hours of the morning and was shown to a room that was on the front of the apartments and to be fair the sound of the traffic did wake us which was frustrating as we had been travelling most of the day before. However int he morning we brought this to the attention of Maria who showed us to another room immediately overlooking the pool and sea and the mountain backdrop.

The apartment itself was clean and very spacious as there was an upstairs and downstairs and it was lovely to be able to sit out on the balcony and take in the scenery over a cup of coffee in the morning.

Maria was extremely helpful and the other staff were also very pleasant at all times. The loacation was excellent being close to the beach, supermarkets, bars, restaurants and shops but far enough away to still be peaceful.

If my boyfriend and I were to return to Crete the apartments would be a definite possibility as it was such a relaxing and friendly atmosphere.

Room Tip: The higher floors with balconies are excellent.

We thoroughly enjoyed our week in an apartment with fab views of the sea and a stunning mountain back drop.
We were only located there at the last minute as the resort apart in Hersonnissos would be closing for the season half way thro' our stay.
Maria the receptionist was very helpful and efficient, accommodating us in such a delightful apartment at such short notice.
When we experienced a power cut late on Saturday evening Maria pulled out all the stops finding an electrician to fix the problem and preventing having to re-locate us in a basement apartment with no views and a lack of natural light.
We enjoyed the Stalis beach front and numerous bars and restaurants and were dreading our return to the UK.
As we were located in Stalis at the last minute we were not on the resort-hoppa list for transfer to the airport but Maria saved the day by chasing it up and not taking no for an answer eventually securing our transfer to the airport.
I can thoroughly recommend the Dias apartments for couples or families with young children as its clean and the staff very helpful.

Room Tip: Try and get a first floor apartment overlooking the pool and breakfast as they have superb views of...

My Friend and I just returned from a weeks stay at this resort. We wanted a week of relaxation, and wasn't disappointed.

Our room was on the 2nd floor overlooking the pool and was brilliant! It was clean, bright and airy and we could always have a nice hot shower. There was enough kitchen equipment for basic holiday catering although we had to supply washing up liquid and cleaning clothes. There is a supermarket just across the road, but the larger ones in Stalis Town, just 5 mins walk away are cheaper.

The Hotel itself is clean, as is the pool area, We saw it cleaned several times whilst we were there.

Food at the Hotel is reasonably priced but the drinks are more expensive than out in the Town. The bar tended to be a little under stocked although we were right at the end of season.

The people themselves who run the Hotel are exceptional. Maria, the Manager we assumed, will do all she can to make your stay comfortable, Nothing is too much trouble and she is always willing to stop and chat. Nicolas, the Barman, was very entertaining and enthusiastic, and made our stay a memorable one! Take care of his complimentary shots of Raki !!

The location itself was ideal for us. The road did not cause too much problem, and a short walk away was the Town with a vast array of bars and restaurants. If you arrive late at night, like we did, I would suggest you head for 9 Muses Traditional Greek Taverna just near the Hotel.The Beach is lovely and sandy and there are plenty of sunbeds. We used the beach outside the Korali (which does the best spit roast chicken!) which was 4 Euros for 2 sunbeds, a parasol and a table.

In all, a fantastic holiday and amazing value for money, Thankyou Maria & Nicolas!! Yamas!

Room Tip: Lower Ground rooms are dark and prone to damp.

Have just returned from our fifth holiday at the Dias in Stalis. At 62 years of age my wife and I have traveled quite extensively but always spend a couple of weeks in September at the wonderful Dias Hotel. The rooms are exceptional and most have a sea view. The atmosphere is great and everyone is made welcome by the lovely Maria, the manageress, who spends seven days a week making sure that all the guests have a good holiday, she is always there to help, advise or just share a frappe with. Everyone is made to feel part of a family by Maria, the owner george and his son Roussoss. The rooms are kept spotless by Vanna who is an exceptional young lady who always welcomes you with the warmest of smiles. The only sad part is having to leave and wait another year to go back.
