After reading all kinds of reviews about the hotel it is very clear to me that people have big expectations and forget about how much they pay. But after staying at Golden Sun Hotel I may say some are exagerated and some are true facts. I've stayed from 2 to 6 star hotels whenever I travelled and I have never been disappointed because everytime I knew what I paid for... Here's my opinion:
- good location in Kalamaki, 2 min walk from the beach. For travellers that enjoy the nightlife I recommend Laganas, in Kalamaki there's nothing to do...
- very friendly staff, quick check-in and great assistance. We asked to change the room because we wanted twin beds, It was solved in 5 minutes.
- though not very diverse, the food was good
- clean rooms
- small bathrooms
- awful drinks at All Inclusive. I paid extra to get the good ones...
- ants in the room
- airplanes landing and taking off. It startes at 7-7:30 a.m. and takes all day till about 9 p.m. You hear them all as they fly above the resort at low altitude.
- gym is very small, they keep it open for 3 and a half hours every day from 10:30-14:00 and only 1 person can enter at a time?!?!?! Better jog on the beach, it is nicer and healthier.
Next time you book your holiday better correlate you expectations to your budget, it saves you from having broken dreams. For the little money it costs, this hotel is not bad.
