Advantages: It's beautiful, the weather's great and it's not expensive Disadvantages: Eventually you have to come home
...I went to Stalis in Crete for two weeks in September 2004, with a couple of friends.

Advantages: Sun,sea,good food. Disadvantages: Some AWFUL accomodation

Stalis is situated on the Northern coastline of Crete between the livelier resorts of Malia and Hersonnisos, both of which are within walking distance or can be reached by bus.
There is also a small land train that runs between the resorts
