Travelled with Thomson Holidays and was looking for a small family run hotel, which is exactly what we got! We did pre-book the upgrade of a room with a fridge, balcony and kettle for making drinks. We also put in a few requests that were not guaranteed but I have to say all requests were confirmed. We arrived in the...

Never been to Crete before apart from a days visit to Chania during a cruise earlier in the year. Took pot luck off of the Thomsons web sight and after reading the reviews were not apprehensive about this hotel. When we got there it was about 10 oclock in the evening. The owner, Marina informed us that the kitchen was...

Very basic rooms - what you would expect for a three star hotel though. Breakfast was included, but was a bit disappointing, so my boyfriend and I chose to skip breakfast all but one day. On our second night, we noticed that my boyfriend's pants were missing, so we went to reception and enquired about whether cleaning staff may have...

Place was outdated and staff very rude. We were put in this hostel due to Thomson flight cancellation. We had a 76year old and an 8year old boy in our party of 8 who was sick when we arrived at 3am, we were told by the man who checked us in to be quiet and go to bed on the...

When we first arrived at the hotel because it was late at night it was in darkness. Our transfer driver told us to go up a walkway beside the hotel to get in and once inside we found the reception to be light and clean. The older man on reception didn't really speak much English but I managed to understand...

We booked last minute because we like eating around but failed utterly - the meals were excellent and reasonably priced so we ate there everynight!The place was spotlessly clean & the rooms had been refurbished for this season it has a small pool and sun beds. It is a 5 minute walk from the blue flag beach where you can...

The place was ok and clean but not for you if u are planning to spend lot of time at the hotel. Breakfast was 5 € which is the cheapest that we found and worth the money. Always room at the pool. Short walking distance to the beach and many sunbeds were free if u by a drink and what...

We were very apprehensive about our stay at the Sun Hotel as it is rated a mere 2 stars on Thompsons. When the coach arrived outside the hotel it didn't look like much because you walk up along the side of the attached restaurant to the reception which was light, airy, and very very clean. The family run hotel was...

Excellent small and friendly hotel. Great location 10 minutes walk to lovely beach. Bus stop right outside 15 minutes to Heraklion - buy your bus ticket in the supermarket next door. Marina, George and Titos (and everyone else were brilliant). Food and drinks excellent quality and very reasonably priced. At least as good if not better than anywhere else we...

Had a wonderful vacation here this summer. The hotel is small but very clean although it can be a little noisy if your room is on the ground floor. The staff is very friendly and you can ask for advice on excursions and anything else too. It's a family hotel with very cozy atmosphere. There cafe(tavern) where breakfast and dinner...
