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.

A lovely break in this very friendly hotel. The rooms, whilst basic, are very clean and comfortable. Plans are in progress to update rooms which are to a high standard. The family and Virginia make our stay relaxing and we meet other returning guests. The hotel is situated just opposite the Ariadne Hotel which provides us with sunbathing on grassy terraces above the seashore. It is central to many restaurants and bars and the owners of the nearby supermarket enable us to get fresh supplies for snacks. We love it. Can't wait for our next visit. To Manos, Eva, George and Helen - thank you!More

Small, basic hotel
This was a small and basic hotel but it had everything we needed for a good holiday. It is very close to a sandy beach and the fact that we could use the pool of the hotel opposite ( which was right on the beach) meant we had the best of both worlds. The breakfast was good. The room was a good size although the bathroom was quite small. We did have a problem with our toilet while we were there - it stopped flushing. We left a note about this at reception but when we returned and spoke to the owner he was very dismissive of the problem and said that someone would come to fix the problem the next day. In the mean time he showed how to lift the cistern cover and flush the toilet in that way. He did not care that I made it clear that this was not acceptable. We were later informed by another member of the family that it would be 2 days until the problem was fixed. While this didn't in any way spoil our holiday it was reflective of the "casual" attitude of the Greeks that we might not get in an hotel in England.More

Excellent 2 week holiday!!!
Returned this morning after spending 2 weeks at the Moonlight, what can I say, fantastic place to stay, very welcoming and friendly owner/staff. Nothing is too much trouble. Breakfast was Greek style, everything really fresh each day and very enjoyable. We were very lucky with our stay as we were given 1 of the newly refurbished room which was outstanding with fully enclosed shower. Quiet location but easily accessible to all areas, on a very good bus route. Plenty of nice places to eat out within the area, i.e Jasemine House(chinese), also excellent food at Anatolia Restaurant. We would recommend this hotel as it was adults only (no under 16's). We enjoyed it so much that we are looking to book for 2015. Holidayed in Crete 3 times and this is by far the best place we have stayed. Keep up the excellent work George. Lynn & Eddie (Liverpool)More

Lovely, small family run hotel
This was our 2nd time staying at the Moonlight Hotel and we have already booked again for 2015. We have stayed in other places in Stalis but this is our favourite hotel. It's small and fairly quiet. The location is great, everything on your doorstep. A good beach is our no1 criteria and the long sandy one here is hard to beat. The rooms are very clean and comfortable, breakfast is simple Greek style and is very tasty and beautifuly presented. The hotel has a bar on-site, great welcome from Dusan & Simon and delicious cocktails !!! The family owners are very freindly and helpful. Many thanks George, Manos & Eva. Special thank you to Virginia for breakfast and cleaning. See you next year, Julia & SteveMore
