“Warm and Friendly place in the Sun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

A warm and friendly welcome from the owner with a complimentary drink and snacks. We arrived late but this wasn't a problem at all. The studio was large and clean with basic but adequate ammenities and a beautiful sundrenched balcony from which we could see the ocean in the distance. Nearby supermarket and 10mins walk to the beach. We arrived back late afternoon each day and enjoyed a beer in the pool - will be coming back.

Room Tip: Try to get the room with the balcony and the sea view... it's perfect.

I booked 2 nights here and ended up staying for 7. These apartments are a great place to base yourself to see the surrounding area. Donissus and Irene are lovely hosts. I was welcomed with a drink and snack and the hospitality during my stay was superb. My room was fabulous. Spacious, clean, had cooking facilities and fridge. Bathroom was good. I had an upstairs room with a balcony. Just the place to really relax, go to the beach 1500 meters away or stay and lounge by the pool. Supermarket about 50 meters away and also serves as the bus stop. Hosts couldnt be more helpful with bus times, activities and onward bookings. I highly recommend these apartments if you want to relax in a nice atmosphere. Breakfast also available. Very good value for money.

Room Tip: If available a room with a balcony is ideal, nice to relax on at the end of the day and a great view...

Warm welcome on arrival and a cold drink. This is an excellent location five mins from supermarket, ten mins from beach and just 20k from airport. Very clean and spacious studio, very well equipped. Quiet and welcome small pool. Will definitely revisit.

Our holiday plan for Crete was to rent a car and drive around to see as much of the island as possible and this hotel was a very good place for us to start our excursions and to rest afterwards.

+ great value for money
+ very spacious and clean rooms
+ extreemly friendly and welcoming owner
+ very good fresh orange juice for breakfast
+ the hotel building itself is rather nice and well-maintained
+ the place is quiet

- the bathroom in our room was very large, but shower was tiny (as a result, the shower curtain sticks to you during showering)
- the air-conditioning was a bit noisy, I had troubles falling asleep

Creta Sun Studios is family run. The welcome was very warm and friendly with a complimentary drink and snacks. The studio was large, airy and clean, with a wonderful balcony. The furnishings are basic but adequate. For self-catering, a kettle would be good, plus dish towel or dish cloth.

Returned today, what an excellant apartment.It is owned by a lovely man called Dennis,who couldnt do enough for us. Having been to Greece many times, this has got to be the best studio we have ever stayed in, the room was large and very clean, we stayed in room 31 and had a fantastic view of the mounains and sea.The room was cleaned every other day and we always had plenty of clean towels. The pool was good and kept spotlessly clean.Agia Pelagia is a lovely resort, not too busy, typical Greek fishing village,highly recommended..

We were very satisfied with our accomodation at Creta sun. It was nice, clean, the owners were really amazing, very nice people, very welcoming and helpful. Cleaning was done every two days, sometimes daily, the towels were changed also. Roms are spacious enough and the bathroom worked fine. It is 10 minutes walk from the Agia Pelagia beach, but we preferred some other beaches, less crowded, and also we travelled a lot. On the beach there are many taverns serving amazing food at decent prices.
