The beach and its facilities are nice. Hotel is separated into two groups, one on the beach side and one on the other side of the road. We cannot judge the one near the beach (meaning the rooms and the service) because we stay at the one located on the other side of the road. In the latter, the rooms... More

We spent a week at this hotel followed by a week cruising round the Greek Islands, booked through Thomas Cook. We would not have chosen this hotel, but it was the only option if we wanted to do the cruise. Not sure why Thomas Cook used this hotel as it was an hour and a half drive (although it took... More

Located in a remote area with small mountains as a backdrop this is an inexpensive little slice of heaven. Of course it is not without its problems but these I will get to... More

My girlfriend and I spent a week at the back end of August and it I'm finding it very hard to find to find any faults. I'll preface this by saying there is little to no night life so a taxi trip into Ierapetra (8km away) is necessary if you want a drink in any of the bars. The hotel... More

After 5 days in Chora Sfakion we spent additional 5 days in Koutsounari at Sunshine Crete Village to explore Crete East side. The hotel is ok and well maintained. Rooms are spacious and extremely clean (my compliments to the personnel). We stayed in room 305 with a sea view and a quiet position on the right side looking at the... More

We like Greece very much, but Crete is a special place for us. You can feel and see history on that island. So, we again decided to spend our holiday there. This time we wanted go to south coast of the island. It very good decision, however number of hotels on that side limits the choice. We chose Sunshine Lyktos... More
