“Paradise Found”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

Just returned from our 3rd stay at the Sunshine and nothing has changed, fantastic hosts , fantastic service, clean rooms, great food, always plenty of sun loungers available. The other guests all respect each others privacy, but there's always a friendly greeting.
Popi, Dimitri and the 3 boys Alex, Totti , Stevo cannot do enough for you, its an amazing place. The 2 house keepers ensure the rooms are always clean and tidy and towels and sheets are changed regularly.
There are some fantastic tavernas very close by, or easy access by bus or taxi to Pefkos - Lardos or Lindos the buses are regular and easy to use, and even a trip to Rhodes only cost 5 euro so well worth it. Theres a mini golf course 18 holes ( 1 game is 5 euro ) but if you pay 10 euro on your first visit , you can play free as often as you like for the duration of your holiday !!! now that's a bargain. I really cant say anything bad about this hotel it just gets better every year, and this is obviously why you have guests returning year on year. I can only suggest you try this hotel for yourself and I am sure you will agree.

Room Tip: All rooms are fine

A family run Hotel where you are treated like one of the family, and nothing is too much trouble. A good hotel will have people coming back for more, and this is a good hotel. We've stayed there many times over the past 19 years and we've never been disappointed, and we're not the only ones.
The past two times we've stayed there we've been in the rooms near the garden restaurant. These rooms are very clean and spacious, with air conditioning, a fridge and a hob. The bathroom has everything you need too, shower, loo, basin, hairdryer and shaving point.
Breakfast is continental, but if you want something else then it's available at a competitive price, and it's good food.
A lovely swimming pool and loungers where you can relax and soak up the sun. Fancy a drink or something to eat, just ask Alex and he'll sort it for you. There's a pool table if you fancy a game.
Later on the restaurant will provide you with a wonderful choice of food cooked to perfection. Why not try one of Peter's special deserts.
The bar is run by Steven. Fancy a cocktail, Steven can sort it for you take a seat and he'll bring it over when it's ready.
For a relaxing holiday there's no better place to go.

Yet another relaxing and restful holiday at this lovely family run hotel. We stayed in the Studio apartments for the first time. These are lovely. Good size with double bed and sofa to relax on. With basic cooking equipment, including a kettle should you want to cook. But there is really no need with the wonderful food served in the restaurant everyday. Enjoyed one of the best carrot cakes and chocolate torte prepared by Peter. Popi, Dimitri and the boys once again made us very welcome. It really is like returning home. The hotel is kept spotlessly clean, and the pool is very welcoming after a day's sightseeing. Would recommend to anyone wanting a quiet, relaxing holiday away from the crowds.

Room Tip: Studios are quiet and well kitted out. Hotel rooms at the back are quieter.

Just returned from a 10 day stay at the Sunshine Hotel, Lardos. This was our second trip to see Popi and her family. We went back because we were impressed the first time, this trip was even better !! The hotel and its surroundings are spotlesly clean, the whole of the team are warm and welcoming and do everything they can to make your stay a memorable one. The food served in their own restaurant is second to none and all reasonably priced. A little gem, see you next year

Just spent 2 weeks at the sunshine hotel in lardos with my wife, and 2 kids and mother in law. What a great place to stay.
The hotel itself is pretty basic, as you expect in Greece, but is worth more than the 2 star rating. Rooms are cleaned daily and the whole place is clean and tidy.
The hotel is family run and by far the most friendly and welcoming place we have ever stayed. Popi, Peter, Alex and Steven all made our stay a pleasure. Whatever you want is no dealt with swiftly and efficiently with nothing being too much trouble. The family dog, Paris, is great fun too!
In the evenings we ate at Popi's garden restaurant on many occasions and can safely say that this was the best food with the best atmosphere of all the restaurant we tried.
Lardos itself is still a quiet resort, great for relaxing. The only downside is the beach is quite gritty and pebbly. If you want a good sandy beach the Pekos is only about 2 1/2 Kms away , but is more crowded.
We have never returned to the same hotel or resort as we like to try new places, but we will definitely return here!

A really great place.

Just returned from a one week stay at the sunshine hotel, felt at home from the moment we arrived. Popi and her family were very welcoming, nothing was too much trouble. Attention to detail ensuring a relaxing and stress free stay. We dined most nights in the garden restaurant run by Alex and Peter which served top quality authentic Greek cuisine cooked by Popi. To complete your meal continue onto the bar where Stephen will serve a wide range of drinks and cocktails in relaxing atmosphere. The pool area was clean and well maintained and comfortable sun loungers available at anytime of the day. Totally unspoilt with a village feel as not overly developed although a well stocked supermarket next door for any essentials you have forgot to pack. Standard hotel room with high standard of cleanliness, for a fee air conditioning, fridge and safety deposit box available. If its not in the room or hotel in general just ask one of the family who are always happy to oblige. There a few places we would revisit as the world is a big place but this is definitely worth another visit. It's taking many holidays to find this gem but with "time" good results are archived. Missing the family already Karen, Gary and Emma

Room Tip: Rooms to the back of the hotel are generally quieter

What a lovely hotel..2 STAR ? should be more in my opinion.

friendly staff, Popi is lovelly, nothing is too much trouble.

We never go to the same place twice, we will be coming back next year I hope for our third year.
People have complained about the breakfast, I am a (in the words of my mother) a big lad and a roll, coffee and juice drink at 9 ish always saw me through til my lunch time beer and Gyro. If you are one of these people who need a 'full engerlish breakfast cuz I'm on holiday' try one there great but I didn't need it every day.

The Mixed Grill is excellent, the Beef Stifado the best! Pork chops are huge, Steaks lovely, Greek Salad fantastic (apparently, I dont eat green stuff!)....Even with all the other places to eat why bother? Many non residents seem to eat at Popi's every day. The refurbed bathroom that Popi is rightly proud of was great, non slip floor, hot shower (why is it still good when its 35+ outside?)
If you want a good honest place to use as a base as we did or a full on stay in the hotel and pool area I would highly recommend this place.
