My stay at Sunny View was amazing: Francis and his parents were very hospitable, the food was excellent and the pool was lovely! This was my first visit and it will certainly not be my last. Highly recommended without hesitation.

Its good if you want to escape from everything and lounge around by the pool all day. Polite owners

It is not a hotel it you are looking somewhere for stuff to happen. Its very boring area. Buses come every 1 - 1.5 hrs to take you 2 km up the road which is horrible to walk in scourching hot weather.
Rooms are average and clean, showers is very poor, found a dead cocroch in the bathroom, stayed there for the hole stay, even though the cleaner came in every other day. Its is a very small family run hotel. The food quality is very poor. They say we cater for the British, but the know how to select the cheapest of the cheapest food to give you. Breakfast consist of a bowl of cereal, cold roll with sliced cheese of ham or jam and butter, tea or coffee.

They will try and sell you into coming to their BBQ but for 20 euros? they think british are loaded and ready to give money for poor quality food. I would never go back.

Stayed 10 years ago and only just got back there for another holiday. George, Katrina and Frantzis remembered what room we had stayed in previously and were as welcoming as ever. A very hospitable Greek family who are only too happy to help and Frantzis will keep the bar open for as long as you like. A very relaxing environment with a lovely pool and recently refurbished rooms. We will be back and will not leave it another 10 years!

My sisters and I went to Sunnyview in 2009 a last minute deal. We returned in 2010 with my brother in law and again 2011 with my niece and cousin. The family run hotel is superb. The rooms are basic but clean and you have everything you need in the room. The food is fantastic and have a special greek dish on each evening. Frantzis, George and Katrina work all hours and are such a welcoming family. The swimming pool is beautiful it is a relaxing holiday but if you want a livelier holiday you are a 5 mins taxi ride or bus ride into the centre. I would recommend the BBQ and Karaoke on a Tuesday night. I will definately return next year. Catherine Glasgow

Very good family run smaller hotel in a quiet area.Would recommend half board; good choice of food including Greek specials every night. Bar prices and cost of food was reasonable. Hotel was very clean, not too far from the beach and with a lovely swimming pool. Well looked after by George, the owner and his family. No evening entertainment, but nice weekly Barbeque (free with wine if on half board). Within walking distance of the beach and town and also on a bus route. Recommend this for a really relaxing holiday

Just arrived back from Sunny View hotel in Kardamena. The hotel was lovely, not too far from the beach, bars and restaurants - a short bus ride or taxi. The owners - George, Katarina and Francis made us feel welcome and could not do enough for us throughout our stay.

Hotels rooms are basic but very clean, and the pool area was lovely.
There are loads of lovely restaurants close by, ones that stood out were Captains, Pelagos and Skala - would definately reccomend these. We ate out every night and did not have one bad meal.

The beach which is 450m away is probably not the best one to sit on, if you go a little futher into town there is a larger beach, it would talk about half an hour to walk, or 5 mins on the bus which is only 1.80 euros and stops outside the hotel - very easy to use.
Other guests also hired cars, mopeds and quads which also looked like an easy way to get around.

I would definately recommend this hotel for all ages, and can't wait to return!

Just got back from the best holiday i have ever been on. Me and my partner decided to book a last minute deal to Kos. As we havent been to the country before we didnt know what to expect and just went off what other people said. When arriving at the hotel (about 10 minutes from the airport) we were greeted by the most friendlist people you will ever meet. George, his wife and son francis own the hotel so it is a family run business.When arriving we were given our room key. Our room was basic, however very clean. (Cleaner came in every day to make beds, fresh towels etc.) and had the most amazing view of over the fields and the beach. Normally we would opt for a 5 star hotel, however after visiting the sunny view, my thoughts have changed as being only a 3* i absolutly loved it. anyone going to the sunny view be sure to try the food and the greek BBQ night (Tuesdays), it is amazing, all home made and when you mention to other restraunt owners in the area they all know that mamma's cooking is the best! This hotel truly has the best of both worlds, set in a quiet area out of kardamena around 1.5miles you can have the relaxation or go into kardamema on a short bus ride and have the nightlife, which i must say was amazing, some of the best nightclubs i have ever been too! Already looking at holidays for next year back to the sunnyview! I LOVE YOU SUNNY VIEW
