“Fabulous”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2012

we stayed at Sunday Life for our honeymoon in May 2012 for 3 nights. The hotel is very affordable and the rooms while simple are very spacious and comfortable. There is a great view of Agia Pelagia from the hotel and the beach is a 5 minutes walk away. The food is exceptional especially the breakfast and you could not ask for better hospitality from the family. I would go back to stay at Sunday Life over and over and over again

We have stayed at Sunday Life for a week and we have spend a great time here. The hotel is small scale (11 rooms/appts only) and family-run. We stayed in room 108 and like most rooms we had a marvellous sea view. Clean and spacious rooms, The owners are very charming, helpful and friendly people.
Moreover, the Sunday Life restaurant is very good and organic. Breakfast is outstanding and only 7 euros pp.,Fresh, home-made products. We have tried several other beach front restaurants at Agia Pelagia and Fodele but the restaurant at Sunday Life was better and more original.
The walk to the nearest beach (the central beach of Agia Pelagia) is only 5 minutes by foot. (It's down a small hill, so not very practical for people with small children in a stroller).If you want to explore other beaches like the lovely Psaromoura beach it's better to hire a scooter like we did.
This is the only small hotel in Agia Pelagia which matches three major advantages: it is close to the beach, it has a magnificent seaview and also a well-situated quiet swimming pool away from the road. These three things are not matched elsewhere in Agia Pelagia. Moreover, Agia Pelagia is only 20 min from the Heraklion airport. So it's a good choice for those who want to avoid mass tourism but don't want to go to the south of Crete because of the distance from the airport.

As a family of four, we traveled recently in Crete. Although the whole trip turned out to be a splendid experience, our stay in Sunday Life was so good that even some time after, it keeps turning in my mind and I just wish we were there again, for some more time. The rooms are completely renovated and spotless, huge. Wifi is free and each room has a huge flat-screen TV. The view is perfect, and the owners are just so helpful it beats me. Breakfast is extra, but at 7€ pp and considering what and how much you eat, it's a bargain. The hours we spent in their tasty, in every sense, restaurant upstairs were glorious: More than you can eat of local food made of their own local produce. We took a basket with us for the day and, frankly, had to skip lunch, we were that full from breakfast. Needless to say, we only ate there for supper as well: another feast, with excellent local wine. In the night, we stayed out in the terrace until late, and the warm breeze felt like an ointment for our rusty bodies, coming from the north... It was too early to use the pool, but we used the fitness and it was OK. The beach is at walking distance. If you are looking for value for your money and a personalized service, go for Sunday Life.
