Our opinion: Picturesque and peaceful, yet within easy reach of some of the most energetic resorts on the island.
The Horizon Stelios Stalis Beach Hotel and Bungalows occupy a privileged location where the sweep of the bay draws your eye and the heat is relieved by occasional sea breezes. This peaceful area is only 2 - 3 kms from the party places of Malia and Hersonissos, but is a little oasis of calm greenery interspersed with the clarety-pink of the bougainvillea, striking against the glowing white of the low, stone buildings, and pretty ponds.
The hotel building houses a large, air-conditioned lounge where guests can come to relax with a book, or to chat with fellow guests over a cup of coffee or a cocktail when it's too hot outside. Terraces in both the main bar and restaurant offer stunning views over the bay, and the pools, snack bar and playground occupy an elevated spot to take advantage of the panorama, too.
If you relish the saltiness and endlessness of the sea, the wooden diving platform directly into the Aegean will be irresistible - what a way to cool off after taking a hired bicycle on a tour of the area! A variety of watersports are there to be discovered, too, on the beaches in the immediate vicinity. When you're ready to retire, spacious, comfy rooms decorated in cool blues await you where you can drift off to sleep to the sound of the cicadas before beginning another perfect day.
