Family run hotel, the family is really helpful and the owner can speak a little Italian, the wifi connection is not always very good in the room but it's ok in the hall. The hotel is kept really clean and well organized, each room has a sort of balcony and all the place is surrounded by trees and typical vegetation.... More

Falassarna offers all for relaxation. There is no night life. But it has all ingredients for a wonderful relaxed holiday in Greece. Of course there is the Greek sun, and... More

We had room nr. 12 and were very happy with the rustic beauty of the room. It was very quiet and peaceful. It was very, very hot, so thank God there was air conditioning. The kitchen was not as clean as our kitchen at home, but it has everything you need for basic cooking. We had a gecko, but no... More

I stayed in Golden Sun for two nights in May. The best thing for me were the owners, in particular Nikki, a very kind lady. Accommodation is vey basic but you get the feeling of living in a traditional Cretan house. I was placed in a single room, small but nice, with a little kitchen and a balcony. The place... More

Falasarna is a very beautiful and quiet place. Hotel Golden Sun has very basic facilities, but it's clean and friendly. Location is perfect to discover Western part of Crete including Balos lagoon (boat trips from Kissamos which is nearby) and of course Falasarna itself with its wonderful sandy beaches. Hotel staff provided us information about the region and told us... More
