Simple Hotel Hersonissos Sun
Ranked #140 of 172 Hotels in Hersonissos
Reviewed July 14, 2011

Reading some of the previous reviews, we were all expecting the worst, but upon arrival, we were pleasantly surprised! The 24 hour bar is fantastic, Andreas and the barmaids are legends, and the atmosphere at the place is great, everyone's friendly and the rooms although basic, do exactly what is required.
The only downfall is that the Vasso is a 5-10 minute cab journey from the actual Malia strip, but the beach is a 5 minute walk away, as is the local Hersonissos strip which is far cheaper than Malia, and has a good number of clubs and bars.
Overall the holiday and accomodation, as well as the staff were fantastic, and i would definitely come back again!

The reviews for this place really doesn't do it justice. It is quite basic but I genuinely had a brilliant time here.
Vasso is brilliantly situated - Spar is about a minutes walk and its less than 5 to the top of the strip.
The rooms are basic enough, particularly the cooking facilities, but they are cleaned everyday and we had no trouble with anything being taken from the room.
The pool is small enough but its good fun and there was always spare sun loungers
If you're coming here expecting luxury you'll be disappointed but if you need somewhere to sleep, eat and began the party every night you'll be pleasantly surprised.

myself and my husband returned today from this place, we had booked a last minute deal and on the thomas cook website it didnt state it was a club 18 to 30, thomas cook refused to allow us to move to one of there hotels even though we offered to pay for it. The room we had was basic but clean but we only got maid service once but as they explained teenagers dont want people in there rooms cleaning and stay in bed most of the day. This is ideal for such young people whereas for us it was impossible to get any sleep at night.The staff make this place ,to be honest costas the manager and andreas the bartender are lovely guys who cant do enough for you.Also the apartments are only a short walk from all the bars and clubs.

Room Tip: only book if your nocturnal

This place is a hell hole. I would not advice anyone to go there. The room the previous person has shown with the view is the room we were given also. It's the same every week when new guests arrive they get put in there complain and get moved the second week. The picture in any brochure or on line of the pool area was taken from up a telepgraph pole to make it look bigger. It's tiny and dirty.

Complete hell hole, rooms were like a prison cell with the doors slamming at night, drunken manchunian women, we thought they were Frank and his family off Shameless. Rooms never cleaned in fact we walked in to a dirty disgusting hovel with towels that were stained from prevous use, thought we had got a tan till we realised it was dirt from the apartment .......... on the bright side we eventually came home.
