“Excellent location, we moved from the Ledra to stay here!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2009

We stumbled across the Sunny Suites as we had booked a last minute package & we were booked to stay at the Ledra Maleme (which is down the road). We swiftly checked out of the Ledra as it was FILTHY & we were happy to find a room free here .... We checked all the local hotels and this place was by far the nicest.
The place is run by Manos who has run the places for years & years. He is a real character & has a very dry sense of humour - he kept us amused anyway!!
The room has a large kitchen, dining area & the bedroom had two single beds pushed together (would have preferred a double though!). The room was cleaned daily by a lovely smiling greek lady. The beds & linen were made daily and changed every 2 days.
The bar is open till v late & over looks the pool which is mega clean. Incidentally the toilets downstairs by the bar are very clean!!!

Would highly recommend ... Maleme is a lovely area - try the local bakery for morning coffee!!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2009

Before I went on my summer break I read all the reviews on this holiday and they were all glowing, what I should have read was that they were all pretty old! While we did indeed have a lovely holiday and had no problems with the hotel what so ever please read pass all the people who say this is the greatest place on earth and Manos is amazing.

While Manos was a very pleasant host and personally greeted and spoke to everyone, I was very disappointed after reading so many glowing reports. He could be a littel short when he spoke to staff and he is very sexist towards women and constanty called them "Beeatch" and "woman" althought I know he meant this as a joke I personally was very offended.

The hotel is basic but very clean thanks totally to their lovely cleaner who was always smiling and could not help you enough. The rooms are basic but perfectly suufiecient for our needs.

Location wise this was a very quiet resort with a few restuarants within walking distance, overall unless you literally want to sit by the pool you will need to rent a car!

As I say overall this is a value budget hotel, clean, quet and had good transport links for us.

I am sure Manos is a truelly lovely man, however we were there with a couple who were there in their 10th year and they stated how much Manos has changed and how he is not a bubbly as he used to be - Manos if you read this, you are so liked please don't ruin yourself beyonf repair as reading your reviews previously I think you were reason people came back time after time.

Whatever you're looking for - whoever you're going with - you'll never find better. Families, Groups, Couples - you'll all have a wonderful time - The Paraskakis family will ensure your holiday is unforgettable.
We're going back in June '07 - we can't believe we've been going out there for 10 years!!!!!!!
Couldn't make it last year but we'll be there with bells on this year!
Yes - we too were dancing in the streets in Aug. '05.

Sunny suites has spoiled other destinations - went to Africa last year & had a great time - but we have to go back for our "fix".

Nowhere else have we found such a haven - we relax as soon as we arrive. Of course - we stay relaxed only as long as we know EXACTLY where Manos is and what he's doing!

See you in June, Puppy!!!!

  • Liked — We had everything we needed
  • Disliked — I had to walk at least 40 steps from the pool to my apartment!!!!!

Just back from the best holiday of my entire life!!
We had 2 fabulous weeks staying at Sunny Suites with the wonderful owner Manos providing us with every need and with great personal entertainment.
He is an amazing host.
The apartment are comfortable, clean and the pool is perfect surrounded by palms with a little bar, where if he is in the right mood Manos will even provide Pizzas and Toasties as snacks.
I have trouble walking far and this lovely man even arranged for me to have a wheelchair to get around the resort of Maleme.
The beach is long with fine shingle at one end and sand the other. The mountains provide a fantastic backdrop to the sea.
There are many tavernas on the seafront and I thoroughly recommend them. In particular Waves and Imperial.
Manos will be happy to send you down the road to his mum's if you wish to hire a car.He may even offer to take you to get your morning paper.
Thankyou Manos and the people of Maleme for your kindness and hospitality. You gave us the best holiday ever and God willing we will be back.
Beware about 3pm when he may take it into his head to dive into the pool unannounced drenching anyone in the area.
(Private joke for Manos. 'Is it? Really?)

  • Liked — Friendly,Clean, perfect self catering apartment with pool and bar close by
  • Disliked — I liked everything about Sunny Suites.
  • Tips/Secrets — Get to know Manos. He is a lovely person.

Just back from out 5th visit. quieter than usual but still a wonderful holiday. Manos was in good form and made our stay very enjoyable. Rooms have had some improvements and more plans for Sunny Suites for next year will make it even better than now. We are already thinking about our next visit. Thanks to all at Sunny Suites.

I too was dancing in the streets on Sunday 7th August 2005 until 4.00am. I went to Sunny Suite for the fifth time together with my partner and mother of 88 years young. We were picked up from the airport by Manos the Taxi driver, barman, entertainer etc. We love the place the people, food at the local beach restaurants, great pool, etc. etc. We were amazed that most of the people we have met at Sunny Suites over the years. We also visit friends back in England. Oh for our return.

We're not sure why the American tourists haven't discovered Sunny Suites, but we're glad we found it. Malame is pretty far from the major sites, but Sunny Suites was a great spot for us to work from. If you're flying into Heraklion, prepare for a 2-3 hour drive out to Malame. Manos (our excellent host who's happy to help you plan your days) tells us you can also fly into Chania, which is about 20 minutes away and one of the most picturesque towns on the islands. This is a place for visitors who want to feel like they've arrived at their vacation home on Crete rather than a posh resort. It's spotlessly clean and run as well as some 5 stars we've stayed at, but at far less the price!
