“brilliant, fantastic, super place.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

we stayed at these apartments for the first time for 2 weeks from 12th june to 28th june 2014. we had never been there before, and found it absolutely wonderful!! ari met us at the door, carried our suitcases to our "house" we had booked a 1 bedroom apartment, bed and breakfast. yannis met us the following morning and introduced both sam, the girl who works there and yanni, who does everything from the pool to the gardens to the maintenance. the sunrise is at the bottom of the mountains, approx 40 mins walk away from the main star beach (which is pools, waterslides, lazy long swim circles all free!!), 15 mins away from old and new hersonnisos, and 20 mins away from the "strip" and the harbour where you can book your sea excursions, we walked down and got a taxi back up the hill. we were in 51 right at the front, next to the supermarket and the bakery, the supermarket opens at 7am until 12 midnight, the bakery from 8am to 8pm - go early, there are queues outside waiting for her to open the shop!
lager at the sunrise is 3euro a pint, breakfast is just enough; full english, juice, coffee & toast - they also do several other breakfast choices such as omelettes and bacon and egg baps and pizza's, burgers etc
we walked or took a trip every other day and sat by the pool every other day - plenty of sunbeds so dont worry. had bbq twice on both sundays, lots of food and good greek dancing. went on happy train into krisi - went on cruise to spinalonga, went on cruise to sissi - all very good value, and very well planned. bbq at spinalonga very very good. the staff are very friendly, rooms cleaned 6 days per week, towels and sheets changed 6 days per week. all the team are wonderful, even to first timers like us, and always ready to tell you where to go and what to do in northern crete. i would definately return to these apartments again 150%

Room Tip: they offer studio apartments and 1 bed apartments - just take either you will be very happy!

This was our sixth stay at the Sunrise, beautiful place, lovely pool area. Comfortable rooms most with a sea view. Great place for a relaxing holiday. Aris and Yiannis are very helpful and welcoming as are all the staff. There is another addition to the bar this year 'Sam' is a lovely girl and a good laugh.
The village has some lovely restaurants our favourates being Mezes (Alex and Christine are great hosts and great food ), Pithari and Sergiani, and some nice cosy bars at night, no loud bars or lager louts/gangs in Koutoulafari ! Just peace and quiet. Lovely apartments in a beautiful village.
See you next year !

We have just returned from an 11 night hol. Would definitely stay at the Sunrise again. All the staff are very friendly and always make you feel welcome. Very clean and well kept complex. We enjoyed the bbq evening. All staff assist to make it a good night.
Our first visit to Koutoufolouri and will definitely be returning in the future. Our favourite bar was so Greco. Maria made us feel very welcome.

Just returned from our second visit to Sunrise and once again we were not disappointed. If anything the place was even cleaner than before and it was spotless then! The cleaners come in every day except Sunday and change the beds/towels more frequently than before. The Sunrise Family are as helpful and cheerful as ever - particularly as Greece were doing rather better than England in the World Cup!!

The village is lovely with lots of choices to eat and drink
The weather was gorgeous
We will be back !

Room Tip: All have a sea view
