Hotel Moonlight  

This typically Greek hotel comes with a laid-back bar* and a quiet rural setting. And then there’s the sea view…

The Moonlight Hotel comes with first-rate sea views. It’s just a few steps from a sandy beach, with a café and restaurant on the doorstep. We don't take bookings for under 16s here, but children may be travelling with other companies.

The hotel has its own bar which does Continental breakfasts and evening cocktails. Elsewhere, there’s plenty of space for sunbathing in the grounds, and there’s a swimming pool you can use at the hotel across the road.

Friendly small family run hotel

our third visit to this hotel run by George his parents Eva (Ever) and Manos and it didn’t disappoint..some rooms have been updated and these are great and all kept beautifully clean by the lovely Maria who also prepares the more than adequate breakfast.. The bar is the greatest surprise, greatly improved since our last visit, new tables and chairs etc ambiance great...Bojan and his brother Simon do a fantastic job of running the bar and have a great menu of cocktails and drinks ...they are a great asset to the hotel ...Great work boys !!More


last minute holiday

Had a wonderful time at the moonlight. We had a basic clean room, cleaned every day by Maria. We were very pleased with the position of the hotel, everything close by, especially the beach, loved swimming in the sea. We enjoyed the hospitality and friendliness of the staff, George the owner, runs the hotel very well. Boyan and Simon were wonderful behind the bar, a great team. We will return soon.More


Fantastic family run hotel

Just returned from a week in the Moonlight hotel and loved it. It was our first visit to Crete and Stalis and it was everything we expect from Greece, although the resort is more commercialised than we are used to, but non of the Greek charm is lost. The hotel is family run and they make you feel really at home. Traditional basic clean accommodation with a more than sufficient continental breakfast served morning by Maria. The use of the Ariadne hotel across the road also felt very welcoming especially the sunbed man. Last, but not least, the Moonlight hotel bar run by Serbian brothers Bojan and Simon. They are the best, funniest, witiest barmen I've come across and Simon makes the best cocktails 🍹🍹🍹 I would recommend this hotel to anyone.More

Excellent Budget Hotel

We have just returned from a weeks stay at the Moonlight. This was our third time to Crete, second time in Stalis. The hotel is basic/ however for what we paid we were extremely pleased with it - the room had everything you need - beds/ storage for clothes/ bathroom etc - and was kept clean/ sheets and towels were regularly changed. The hotel's location is excellent, you've got about a mile either side of the hotel full of bars/ restaurants/ shops. The main thing that really makes this hotel, is the staff, and the bar staff. The owners were all lovely - George checked us in and was very helpful - and you see him round and about the hotel if you need him. Manos was lovely and very helpful when I explained my fiancé had accidentally thrown away our return boarding passes (!) and let me use the reception computer and printer to re-print them. We didn't go for breakfast (weren't usually up early enough!) so we met Maria on our last day as we checked out and she was also lovely and said we didn't need to check out then if we didn't want to / could keep the room a bit longer. The bar staff - Boyyan and his brother (Simon who stays behind the bar) were excellent. We often went for a cocktail or two before going out for our meal - and Boyyan is a really lovely person - comes round to take your drink orders and has a little chat with everyone, really nice guy. The bar area was often busy when we came back upon an evening to our room - but didn't disturb us at all when we went to bed (we were in the back block - room 7). And Simon's cocktails are fabulous - try them all! Stalis is a lovely resort, great beach, plenty of bars/restaurants etc - as mentioned we have been a couple of times now so if anyone has any questions or want's any tips on good restaurants etc please feel free to message me! If you're looking for a cheap break with basic amenities but great service and location, I can recommend the Moonlight.More


One of the best hotels in the area

Many of the photos have now changed as rooms have been updated, and wow ! the new rooms are fabulous. with fitting and services you would fins in a hotel ways above this star rating. The hotel has ongoing programs to upgrade and renovate its rooms. A small hotel right in the heart, family run and the family are fantastic ! they so kind and helpful and strive to give you the holiday stay you want. The hotel has a very popular bar operated by two guys who are themselves characters full of fun and freindliness. They certainly make you feel at home, one of the boards outside say "come as a stranger - leave as a freind" and you certainly feel like you make freinds of all these people. It is hotel B&B only, and bar open from 1800 nightly until close. Eva, george are definitely the best hostsMore
