I bought this holiday as a birthday present for my boyfriend. And I've never felt so guilty in my life to bring him to this place. Arrived late and our cold plate was disgusting with cold chicken nuggets and had been there all day. Our room was very bare and dirty with fleas biting my feet. The food in the... More

We stayed at this alleged three-star hotel, (which has now started calling itself the "Rethymnon Sunset" although the signage, bed linen and other branding still bears the name "Golden Sun") having paid our tour operator for eleven days on an all-inclusive basis. We managed to get moved after three squalid days. I'll quote from the description of this hotel given... More

No hot water. Terrible rooms(unless you managed to get moved to a few of the decent ones). Terrible food( they get the meat right though, its always good), zero variety. All inclusive does not include hot chocolate. It's cheap, all right, but its not cheap enough for this kind of service.

- 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!
