After one week in this apartment hotel, we came back to Norway 6 days ago with a very good experience. It was quiet, very relaxing and friendly. Our studio apartment was not great, but big enough and functional. It was facing the pool to the west with sun on the balcony from 15.30 pm. Perfect. The bed could have been... More

We stayed at the Cretan sun for 10days in September and enjoyed our stay. The staff really make this hotel, Manos makes great cocktails and Maria was always helpful. There were a few little things that I didn't like which is why it got 4 stars instead of 5; the pool had quite a bit of debris in the bottom... More

We stayed at the Cretan Sun Hotel for a week in September. I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. The staff patticularly Manos and Stavros make it a holiday to remember. The hotel is well situated close to shops, bars, restaurants and a beautiful beach. I will definitely be coming back.

"What a relaxing holiday", long day to get there but was well worth waiting for. We had B&B and only missed breakfast when we went on a trip. Great Craic (fun) with Manos and Stavros, both can mix a nifty 3 colour "white Russian". Staff at breakfast (good breakfast at that) always cheerful and welcoming. Room was grand and cleaned...

This is a friendly and cosy familyhotel that is located close to shopping and the beach, without the noice and hazzle in the big cities. The staff is friendly and always helpful. The pool area is also nice. I can recommend it, especially for families and people who like a relaxing and good atmosphere. Best regards from Anett from Norway

Just got back from two weeks at Cretan Sun and had such a fantastic time. Rooms regularly cleaned and the pool area and whole resort always well maintained and spotless. A real family run establishment with nothing ever too much trouble. Met some great people there also which made the whole experience so enjoyable. Close walk to shops, restaurants, beach... More
