- There were no hot water in the shower, one day there were no water at all!! - Poor wifi connection for super-expensive wifi only in the lobby. - Facilities are very very old. If you think you'd save money on this hotel (like I thought) it's not true!!! Really, find another hotel or stay home!

Svetlana in the bar and Maria always pleasant but unfortunately they can only work with what they have got. Rooms - The bedrooms are basic but adequate and clean,... More

Nobody in Crete even know this hotel name, as it used to be Golden sun, the signage still says Golden sun and when we arrived at the airport, the shuttle driver had to ask 10 people where it was, until he realized that it is the old Golden sun hotel. When we arrived I thought it was a joke, as... More

Unfussy cosy hotel with stunning pool was slightly off the beaten track though still close to the beach and amenities; perfect for me as a solo traveller on a much needed trip. The rates were very reasonable. Loved the local yoghurt and honey!
