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

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

We stayed in The Golden Sun Hotel in July 2011 on a 10 day holiday. We loved it here. The owners are so friendly treated us like family. They picked us up from the Ferry and were so nice to us when the airline had misplaced our bags they gave us a list of places to get some good bargains.... 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

This was my first time ever in Greece - and what a place. The hospitality was second to none. Great views of the harbour from my room - Room all you can want cleaned every day- TV and ensuite. So great returning again this year - looking forward to the family hospitality and of course the Greece sunshine!
