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.

Another great holiday
Stayed at the Moonlight on many occasions. I still find this hotel and staff fantastic. From the moment you check in to the time to leave nothing is to much a problem for them. Yes guests might moan about the extras which are charged for but you are informed of this at the time of booking so don't complain afterwards. The rooms are cleaned daily and the cleaner who l believe is named Maria does a excellent job. The breakfast is continental and is very good. The bar which is open in the evening and managed by 2 brothers whose names escape me is a absolutely fantastic place. They make you feel very welcome and make fantastic cocktails. Once again i thank the owner George for another great holiday at The Moonlight and looking forward to seeing you all next year More
Just returned from a week at this hotel and really enjoyed it, well it turned into an extended week due to the Greek Air Traffic Controllers strike...yippeee ð, I love democracy...power to the people! The hotel is a work in progress but it's mainly refurbished, we got an old room which wasn't a major issue. Newly refurbished rooms are lovely, so hopefully next time? The family who own the Moonlight are friendly and always happy to help with anything you may need, Maria the breakfast lady/cleaner works very hard all day long. The hotel bar is a great place to relax, have a laugh and meet other guests! The bar is an essential asset to the hotel, and not sure we'd have had such a great holiday at the hotel without it? The brothers who run it, 'simon' the younger is the barman and makes some lovely cocktails, and Bojan the elder serves always with a smile and a sixpack! We will definitely return next year, probably a bit earlier in the year when it's a little busier, maybe have a night out in Malia. Make sure you don't run out of Cherry Brandy! Andrea & Jane xxMore
Very impressed, first time we have stayed in moonlight (Linda&Graham)
The moonlight is a small but well run family hotel. We stayed for a week 25 September to 2 October in room 5, we were welcomed by George shown our room in a very friendly and welcoming manner. Very impressed with the maid service, Maria kept the room clean and tidy all week. The bar staff Simon and Bojan were excellent and very professional they made everyone feel special. Our room didn't have a kettle for cups of tea but when it was mentioned it was sorted straight away. Well done to everyone at the Moonlight for making our holiday special we will certainly be coming back in June xxMore
average location but friendly staff
This is a small hotel with a selection of rooms on three floors in the main building plus a two storey row of rooms in a separate block behind. Reception is on the first floor, accessed by a flight of stairs from outside. We were greeted and shown to our room by George, who was very helpful. Our room was in the main building and downstairs from reception which meant we were back on the ground floor but it felt as though we were going underground into a cave. We paid the extra charges for the safety deposit box, air conditioning and access to the fridge - which is a bit extortionate but we recognise as being standard practice in many Greek hotels. The fridge light did not work and although we said this was not a problem to us George did arrange for it to be fixed within a couple of days of our arrival. From the details we had received from our travel organiser (Thompson) we had expected there to be a kettle in the room and we commented on its absence. Tis seemed to cause some surprise and consternation to George and, as it turned out, on re-reading later in the week, that there is a rolling programme of refurbishing the rooms and it is only the refurbed ones which have tea and coffee making facilities. Nonethless (after a couple of reminders) the proprietor of the hotel presented us with a kettle which he said was a standby they used for breakfast if the water urn failed, and we had the use of that for the week. The room itself was small but basically sufficient and had an ouside seating area (which would have been a balcony on a higher floor). The standard two single beds were shoehorned in but because of the size of the fridge there was only a space of about four inches between the foot of the bed and the fridge unit on one side which meant I was forever stubbing my toes or banging my shins on the foot of the bed. The beds were comfortable enough in a standard Greek holiday utilitarian way. The bathroom was equipped with the standard tiny shower space, wash basin and loo. Unlike many places we have stayed, however, the shower had plentiful hot water (solar heated) and a good pressure. Breakfast was unexceptional: An urn of coffe and an urn of hot water for making tea were available. The buffet style breakfast bar had cereals, fruit juice, fairly freshly cut fruit salad plus peach halves in syrup, greek yoghurt and honey, a couple of different types of processed ham slices, salami and processed cheese slices, sliced white bread and (sometimes) croissants. A toaster was availabe for the bread. Outside, in the forecourt of the premises leading down to the road is a large bar area where we regularly partook of a tipple before venturing out to find our evening meal, and sometimes a nightcap on our return. Simon and Bojan man the bar (Simon behind the bar and Bojan front of house,serving) and always made us very welcome, Bojan making special effort to note and remember our names and serving our drinks with great friendliness. Special mention should go to Maria who seemed to do all the manual work around the place, preparing and serving breakfast, hosing down the stairs and paths of the outside public areas and servicing the rooms with no apparent assistance, whilst maintaining a friendly and helpful demeanour. I hope she is well paid for what she does! Talking to other guests we were surprised to find how many of them have been coming back time and again for many years. To our minds it is ok as a one-off visit but neither the resort nor the hotel are the sort of place we would be drawn back to. We've been there, we've done it - now let's see what other places we can find.More
Lovely Moonlight Hotel and Bar
We got home only yesterday from a fabulous 2 week holiday at this hotel, when we arrived Bojan came to take my case when we got out the taxi. George showed us to our room and showed us all we needed to know, sorted fridge and air con out there and then so sorted in minutes bless him. Lovely room (14) and what a lovely family they are, I have been to Stallis 3 times now and would stay at the Moonlight again for sure, Simon is lovely too, makes yummy cocktails and is a lovely guy (damn I'm married ha ha), I miss them all horribly, even the little dog Rocky didn't want me to go. I recommend you stay here, you cannot get nicer, friendlier and helpful staff, they are all bloody wonderful, Maria is a sweetheart too and works so hard, love them all to the moon and back, Daphne and Mark Glass xxxxxxMore
