I have been stayed in this structure this August and I might say that it was one of the best records from my trip to Greece. The owners, Alexandro, his wife and daughter Sofia made it really unforgettable! This family made you feel a very special guest, like you are the most important people in the whole island. They treat... More

I'm very sorry to do this, because our stay at the Golden Sun was actually quite nice until the very end. The rooms are nothing spectacular, but are not uncomfortable. The pool is very nice and the location is suitable, close to the port and about a 10 minute walk from the main town. However our biggest let down was... More

I wonder why somepeople can't understand a few simple things . You can't be nice to almost everyone and suddenly be rude to someone else. Some people have just some nerve ,that is all I can say.If you see our reviews about the staff we have 100% . MsJacqui was suppose to leave the room at check -out which was... More

Basic rooms reasonably clean, small size and decoration on a three bed room. swimming pool is nice, but 15mins of uphill walk into town is tiring especially if no car available. Our room had a little smell and noise from the pool and fridge. Overall it's ok but not top choice..

Dear Sir, We respect your opinion,but I am afraid there was a negative feeling to begin with.First of all ,you had reserved a triple room and you only told us upon arrival that the third one could not make it and we did not charge you for the third person even though we had the right to.You arrived with your...

After a frantic couple of weeks travelling the Golden Sun was the perfect place to relax and rejuvenate! Was soo impressed with the family who own the hotel, they were incredibly welcoming and friendly and keen to give us loads of tips and advice on what to do/where to go on the island. The rooms were immaculate, pool was delightful... More

Right from the greeting at the port Alexandros was so helpful and friendly and myself and my wife at ease! We got to the hotel and we had booked a twin as it was the last room available, we said we were on our honeymoon and they had put the beds together to make a massive double! Room was clean... More

This hotel is in a good location - halfway between the port and town. Only a 5 min walk down the road you will find a little beach near the port and some places to eat/drink and a couple of shops. Up to town is a little further up some steps, but doesn't take long (10 minutes?) and is mostly... More

The Golden Sun is a family run hotel, one step up from a pension (greek B&B), with gorgeous pool, with views to the sea and port, bar and breakfast available. The family who run the hotel are extremely welcoming and friendly, ready to help with any enquiries. We got a great deal on a scooter and they kindly called ahead... More
