“Basic accomodation! but PERFECT location!!! Would go back!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2011

I recently returned from a weeks stay at the Sunshine studios in Zante.

The hotel is a 5 min walk to both the beach and the end of the strip. So its location couldn't be better!!! You have access to all that you would possibly want plus none of the noise from the main bar area.
Having said that the pool bar can be quite lively in the evening however when all the balcony doors (shutters door, bug screen and main balcony door) are shut you cant hear it!

The rooms themselves are lovely although basic!
We went self catering and all the kitchen had was a hot plate, kettle and fridge. So You couldn't really cook in there.
However this was not an issue as eating out is really cheap! Many of the restaurants offer a 3 course meal plus drinks for 15 euros, the hotel pool bar does a fab hot dog and chips basket for 2 euros 50c and Mr Dallas ( a lovely restaurant on the strip near the hotel) does a souvlaki wrap for 3euros. So you really won't starve.
If you do want to cook there is a reasonably priced supermarket about a min walk away.

We paid for a safe which worked out between the 3 of us roughly a euro a day.
The rooms are spoltless and were cleaned daily, which we didn't expect but which was fab! We also didn't see a cockroach or any other creepy crawly the whole holiday!

The pool is lovely and is extremely quiet until about 2pm when all the clubbers arise!

We didn't pay the extra for the air conditioning unit but as the heat was in the 40's we would definately look into this if we went back as the rooms can get very hot at night.

We had a fab holiday there and to be honest whether like us you were there for a sunny relaxing beach holiday or like some of the other guests a clubbing holiday you really couldn't ask for more for your money!

If we return to Zante, we would definately look into staying here again!

We've been staying at Sunshine for the last 5 years & everything about it is 10/10.

The location is perfect, 1 min to the beach and 2 mins tops to the heart of the strip & yet you don't hear any noise or get the passing clowns of a hotel actually on the strip.

The hotel is family run by the nicest, most welcoming greek family you will ever meet. Chris, Rita, Konstantina to name but a few. They make you feel right at home and even invite everyone to the weekly family bbq.

Get a car and tour the island, get a boat and sail round to turtle island - amazing.

Laganas is an excellent resort with great nightlife and idyllic scenery. I can't recommend this place highly enough, already booked to go back in 2011

Me and my boyfriend just arrived back from the sunshine hotel after having an awesome 2 weeks stay. Chris and Rita are two of the friendliest people you will meet, maid service is excellent they come in everyday to change towels and clean. All the other staff are just as friendly especially the night security man Tasos. In a perfect location for the beach and main strip as both are just a minute walking distance away but you cant hear any of the noise from the strip in your apartment. We would recommend the club sandwich at the pool bar as it’s delicious and good value for money, also there’s always staff around 24hours a day. We did not see one cloud for the whole 2 weeks we were there apart from the day we were coming home. I would recommend these apartments to either families groups or couples. Had a brilliant holiday will be going back next year thanks a lot Rita and Chris xxx Vicky and Stephen

I was very fortunate to find this accommodation. I couldn't really fault it.
Located literally 2 minutes away from the famous beach at Laganas and 5 minutes walk away from the 'strip', Sunshine is in the perfect location for a self-catering holiday!
The accommodation is well maintained by owners Chris & Rita. The room was cleaned 5 times a week, the room was modern, the fridge worked beautifully and the shower and bath were spotless.
The pool and pool area is also very clean with plenty of sunloungers available. The pool bar serves convenient snacks and has a very nice pint of draught Mythos (3 Euros a pint).
I have been coming to Laganas since 1991 and must say that Sunshine and Plaza offer the best self-catering accommodation.
The complex is covered by CCTV, and each room has its own safety deposit box (pay at reception).
The owners are very strict about noise at night time and for those looking for an 18/30 holiday I suggest they don't choose Sunshine because it is suitable for singles, couples and families.
Really loved Sunshine and would definitely recommend it to my friends!

Thanks Chris, Rita and staff.
See you again soon

the hotel is ok, the rooms are not very big. I didnt like the bathroom, it was kindof disgusting and the shower was very small. the girl in the bar was lovely, as well as the old man. There were two creepy nightguards that was really disgusting. ruomors said that they had stolen some money, but i dont know..
the room cleaning was ok, not great. They took the trash and wiped the floor. They changed bedsheets twice a week and towels each other day.
