Small but very nice, well-kept and well-run hotel beautifully situated on the mountain slope near Agia Pelagia. All facilities are in a good condition, clean and very well kept. Very friendly and hospitable service where all guests are treated like friends or family. The hotel alone is definitely worth a visit but the restaurant takes it to a league of... More

Booked to stay here for 10 nights and extended for a further 6. That says it all as far as we are concerned. Location about a 15 minute walk from the small village and situated on a hillside. The result: a good vigorous walk back partly uphill to generate an appetite but what a view over the bay-really magnificent. There... More

Many Greek properties provide simple, basic accommodation, Not sunday life. Luxurious, spacious rooms, massive comfortable beds, large balconies with a beautiful view. The food is top quality, Stelios and his staff go out of their way to ensure your stay is enjoyable, nothing is too much to ask, if you have a personal favourite Greek dish which is not on... More

We had a short 2 day stay in this lovely, family run hotel and restaurant. Great location neAr Heraklion ( 25 min drive) and several smaller beaches, nice pool, gym, restaurant area with great views. We first got a big, but slightly outdated room in the seperated building near the car park which we did not like so much. It... More

Sunday Life is a family-run hotel and it is amazing. The owners are so kind, and care so much for their customers. If you arrive early, they will feed you and make you comfortable while you wait for your room to be cleaned. They have a 4 star restaurant on site and for just 7 Euros you will have more... More

Most rooms are modern and clean, they all have excellent view and an extraordinary family service. the only downfall is the bathrooms, the water just falls out when you shower, and the wifi is a bit slow, but the rest, is just perfect. Taxi ride is 40 Euros one way, rent a car if you can. Beach is a walking... More

I just spent 14 days at this lovely hotel with panoramic views over the beach at Agia Pelagia. The rooms were modern, comfortable and clean with huge sliding glass doors opening up to an outdoor terrace. The owners Stelios and Yiannis were very friendly and welcoming and took time every day to have a chat with the guests. The food... More

We arrived very late around 12 PM. The owner welcomed us very well. Room was big and clean. Breakfast was really great. It was really delicious. Agia Pelagia is also a nice place but not yet alive in the beginning of April but the see is beautiful and you can find some really nice beaches I can recommend it!!!

We read the reviews and decided to go. The name has nothing to do with religion, just the timing of the renovation and the feeling of relaxing on a peaceful Sunday afternoon that they hope to inculcate into their guests. The setting and appearance were everything we had hoped for. The family run place on the hill above a gorgeous... More
