You really could not want for more. Always request room 21, it overlooks the sea and pool and is the perfect sun trap. Spacious and always kept cleaned, daily, by the chambermaid.

We shall be visiting again with no worries.

Room Tip: Room 21, or if your taking a family, ask for the family room.

My partner and I stayed here in October 2012, it was the week when the season ended and the island was expecting bad weather which was very unfortunate for us! Apparently the week before had been glorious! Regardless of the weather, we found the Sunrise apartments a very pleasant place to stay.
We hired a car at the airport and drove to Elounda, the apartments were easy to find, just a stones throw from the center of town where there were many nice restaurants, touristy shops & supermarkets but it was not so close that we were disturbed by noise from bars or people in the evenings! We parked our car on the street in front of the apartments with no trouble, I'm not sure how easy it would be to find parking in the middle of summer along that road though! There is a boat that goes regularly from Elounda to Spinalonga island, the port is a 5 -10 minute walk from the apartments. Most evenings we walked into the town center (just a 5 minute walk) for dinner at one of the many sea front restaurants. We were often spoiled for choice for where to eat! We also drove to Agios Nikolaos for dinner one evening.
The weather wasn't warm enough to sit by or even use the small pool at the apartments but on the warmer days of the week we walked along the road in front of the apartments to some rocks where we could swim, the sea was still warm! There is also a small beach a 30 second walk from the apartments with sun loungers.. sadly we didn't have enough sun to take advantage of these!
The owners (A very friendly and helpful couple who speak English!) had to close the pool side bar and pack away the Tv's due to the bad weather that was forecast (I assume the Tvs show sports during high season!), however they were always around and on hand if we needed anything!
The apartment had everything we needed, we used the small kitchenette each day to prepare breakfast and a little picnic lunch to take with us when we were out and about exploring in our little car. We cooked pasta one evening when we didn't feel like walking into town in the rain! There was also a menu to buy breakfast or snacks from the pool side bar at reasonable prices however as they had to close due to the bad weather this wasn't an option for us! The apartment was clean when we arrived and was cleaned by a cleaner on a daily bases. She changed our sheets & towels once in the week which was fine with us. The bathroom was fine.. nothing exceptional but it was all we needed, there was plenty of hot water! The bed was comfortable too! The apartment had a fan and air conditioning but we didn't need to use them! There was a Tv in the bedroom.. we switched it on once but didn't find any channels in English so didn't use it again! There were other guests staying in the apartments but we hardly heard or saw any of them!
If you are looking for somewhere clean, quiet, cheap and cheerful this is the place for you!
My advice would be that unless you specifically want to stay in Elounda for your entire stay, hire a car or a scooter and explore the local area... there are buses to Agios Nikolaos, the closest larger town, where are are lots more shops and lovely restaurants but if you want to go into the country side or visit some of the ancient ruins then a car is best!

Room Tip: There are rooms with a sea view... I suppose you should request this specifically if you want one wh...

You cannot fault this accommodation on price as we had a really good deal. The apartment was fine with view across to the mountains and glorious sunrise every morning. The pool area is a little disappointing as the pool itself is quite small and in the shade for the best part of the day. Also the bar area is right next door so it is not quiet. The location is great, just out of the main village but right by the causeway and a beach with fabulous views to Spinalonga island. I would probably have loved this complex more if I hadn't already spent 10 days at Mediterranea Apartments in Chania. These were admittedly a bit more expensive but were more modern, with a lovely quiet pool area and far cleaner with floors and balcony of the apartment cleaned daily whereas here we didn't get a full clean every day and only had the balcony swept once or twice. I wouldn't let this put me off though and would recommend it to anyone who wants a cheap place to stay in this lovely part of Crete.

Great stay in The Sunrise. Nothing too much trouble Apartments basic but ideal fro what we needed offering excellent value. Just a 10 minute stroll in to town although lots of good restaurants on the doorstep. Staff really friendly. Will certainly be back

What a great place! We stayed here 2nd-9th October 2012. We were in a 1 bed apartment which was clean and a decent size. Location is fab, a pleasant 10 minute stroll along the seafront from the village centre. The swimming pool and bar area is lovely and has a beautiful view across the bay. The staff at the Sunrise are really friendly, helpful and go out of their way to make you feel at home. They were really good with my 5 year old daughter, who absolutely loved the pool and being spoilt by everyone! We will definitely be returning to the Sunrise. Thank you for a fantastic holiday and we will see you again soon!
