What a gem the sunrise studios and apartments are ! Lovely family run, excellent bar and food, lovely pool and plenty of sunloungers. some of the apartments have recently been refurbished to a good standard they are clean and yiannis and Aris will help with anything you need, they are all very friendly.
The village of Koutouloufari is less than a 5 minute walk and has a good selection of little shops, bars and restaurants, our favourite is 'Mezes' never has a bad meal here in all the years we have been going to the resort, the souvlaki is the best we have ever had,the pizza place opposite Mezes is also lovely, freshly oven made (stonebaked), they also do Greek food, the greek salads are gorgeous.
Supermarket and bakery accross the very small road (not busy) sells everything you need on your holiday with fresh bread every morning , there are other supermarkets in the village, but we found this one was adequate.
Hersonnissos is a good 25 minute walk down the sloping hill, loads of shops and bars alot more going on than in kouti, but thats why we like the sunrise, when you get back up that hill its so peaceful and relaxing. The harbour in Hersonissos is lovely and the seafront snackbars and restaurants are great for having a spot of lunch.
We didnt walk back up the hill in the heat , we got a taxi back up which doesnt take five minutes.
BBQ night at the sunrise is a must , everyone goes and its a fun night, the food is fabulous, home cooked moussaka , steaks, sausage, salads, bread etc.
We dont think its for young children as its mainly all couples here, as there is no kids pool, but again thats what we like about it , the peaceuful and lovely atmosphere the owners make.
All in all if you go here you will love it ! There is nothing to complain about, one of our favourite places in Greece, we like to holiday twice a year, and Sunrise is always one of our holidays we take ! From the minute you get there you feel welcomed and at home!
See you next year sunrise family ! x
