I have stayed at the Sunlight twice and a friend of mine 4 times in 3 years. It is situated a little out of town quite high up and has scenery that has to be seen to be believed, I was literally gobsmacked! The rooms are quite basic but very clean and everything you would need. They are air conditioned for I think 6Euros a night (when I stayed). The rooms I've had were twins with a bathroom and a large balcony overlooking the sea of Crete and the Minoan goat preserve. You could spend the day watching the boats coming in and out of the harbour; very relaxing. The owner's son George is a star and the pool bar lady (Jayne) has become a very good friend.

In the town you can have a big night or a quite night, there is something for every mood. For a big night try Aquirius, Alexandros (Roof Top) and finish the night at Sorrentos.

For an authentic meal have a drink at Jollies Bar then go next door to Portes for the best mezze style dish at the best prices.

As you can tell I highly recommend resort as a whole. I hope you have a good time and say hello to Jayne, say the boys from Stockport miss her!!

Just got back from Ag Nik a couple of weeks ago and have booked to return in July 2005. I second what was said above! I like it so much I'm going back on my own this time around. Definitely give Alexandros' a go!
