The simple way to describe how we feel is telling that this was our 15th stay at Sunny Bay Hotel. Hotel staff is outstanding, always there to serve and help! And not to forget the owners, the most lovely Vernadaki family, every one of them treating you as VIP.

Dear MrsMayna, You will find restaurants in 10 min walking distance (750m) from Sunny Bay. There is very good a la cart restaurant in the hotel as well, in case you don't want to book a room on half board. So you have plenty of choices.

Dear friend There is no direct route from Kissamos to Heraklion. You have to change bus in Chania. First bus to Chania is 6:00. Impossible to be in Heraklion before 9:00
