So this was my 5th holiday at the Sunshine and I always hope that things haven't changed but things HAD changed this year ! The family that run the Sunshine have obviously worked very hard over the winter - the grounds had been 'landscaped', there were lots of new interior design things ( curtains / drapes / the lobby had had a 'makeover' ) and much to our surprise the bathrooms on the upper floors have been completely redone and are now beautifully tiled, have modern suites - and have an amazing shower ! What a surprise !
Please remember that when you book the Sunshine you are paying about £6 per night per person. This buys you a lovely large clean room ( cleaned daily ), a very modern bathroom, electricity, hot water, free Wi-Fi by the pool, fresh towels / sheets twice a week and a fresh and adequate breakfast ( roll, butter, jam, hot drink, orange drink - if you want other things they are available at a SMALL price ), a clean pool and plenty of sun loungers.
The hotel restaurant serves freshly made food which is very reasonably priced. The hotel bar serves a great selection of drinks and the prices are less than those in the surrounding bars. The pool bar serves freshly made lunches and snacks.
The family and staff at the Sunshine work non-stop and could not be nicer or more friendly.
Air-con was a must for us and is about 7 euro per night. Electricity is EXPENSIVE in Greece.
The hotel is a few mins walk from the beach and there are plenty of supermarkets nearby ( the one next door stocks EVERTHING you will need ).
We went into Lardos one evening and had a FANTASTIC meal at Roulas - turns out that Roula is Popi's niece !
Whilst we were there - there was a party of family members over from the USA for a wedding. It was great to 'share' this experience and see Popi heading off to the wedding looking very glamorous.
If you are looking for a clean and friendly hotel and a quiet relaxing holiday this place will suit you fine. We were delighted to catch up with some old holiday friends and make some new ones. Just sorry that we missed some people that we met last year because they went a week earlier !
All in all another AMAZING holiday at the Sunshine and I look forward to returning.
