I stayed at the Sun Village for two weeks.
The hotel is, as another post stated, basic but clean.
The rooms were a good size and the cleaners never stopped, day or night.
I stayed all inclusive. One thing I learnt is that Greece has 4 levels of All Inclusive, from AI Light to AI Premier. This hotel is AI Light which means you get three basic meals and limited free drinks. You have to pay for snacks etc. So check this when you book.
The food in my oppinion was very poor. Limited selection. Manly cucumber and melon .... I'm not saying it was bad food, I'm saying I was dissapointed with it and didn't like it.
The current owners opened for business at the beginning of July and while I was there you could see improvements being made all the time. I think the new owners will do good things with this hotel over the coming months.
The location: Situated on the outskirts of Sissi, you can walk along the main road past some shops to the harbour area or take the road along the beach. Takes about 15 minutes to walk into town.
The beach area outside the hotel is rocky and dated, you can swim from here but really only on a calm day. There is a small man made beach at the end of the road, can get crowded.
Taxi to Malia the next closest resort which is the party hub of crete is 15 euros each way. Excellent beach's and shops etc. We hired a Quad from road runners which save us a bit.
The staff at the hotel work extremely hard and I was always greeted with a smile. It's a family owned hotel. The pool is a sea water pool which is a good size. Can be very cold if they change the water.
Overall the hotel is OK for a quick cheap break. Would I stay here agin? Probably Not, but not because of anything bad.
