Sunrise Appartments is a lovely place to have your holiday, it was our first time on Crete and definatley not the last. Sunrise is well situated, yes .. up a hill but if you cut throught the all inclusive hotel down the road from the Rainbow supermarket it is a far easier walk, and a free shuttle bus runs you to Star beach.
Star Beach provides a great service and facitities for all the family, it is quite over priced but you can always stock up in their little shop en-route and save a fortune.
Do take a good supply of high factor sun lotion with you, it is VERY expensive to buy over there.
The bus service is good and regular, its about 5 euro return to Heraklion, we also got the bus to Malia... Big mistake, it is an absolute dump and the beach is about a mile and a half walk and is quite horrible, full of rocks and rocks and rock pools.
Undoubtedly the best restaurant is Sergiani's in Koutouloufari, fantastic service, clean, friendly, very reasonably priced, free puddings and enough choice to last you a month!
We tried others, Gallini was very nice, a bit more expensive and classy but you came out still hungry, Emmanuel (opposite Sergiani's) was the worst, i had a pile of slop which was quite vile and full of fatty meat, our son was asleep in the pushchair and when we got our bill it had 3 items we were unsure of, when questioned the manager said it was a cover charge for the use of the chairs table and table cloth! We were shocked and a a bit annoyed as we seemed to have to even pay to park a pushchair there too, the manager told us this was normal ! OK!
You can get some nice Jewellery in the shops, but do haggle especially for cash, the first shop you reach is reasonably priced but the one the other end of the little town is about 3 times the price!
Whilst on our 2 weeks break we found that this area of crete perfect for all the family, there is no noise or yobs anything to ruin your holiday. we look forward to returning there soon.

Just got back from a week at the Sunrise Apt just out side of Hersonissos, what a great place ! Saw the good reviews on other sites and thought they may be being a bit too good, BUT they where right. Nice, clean, typical SC Greek accom, just what I wanted.
The Sunrise family are 1st class !!! Good cleaners, good handyman.
Its just outside of the little town with plenty of eating and drinking places for all the family, and if you want more then walk down the hill to the main town for all night partying (GET CAB BACK !! unless you WELL fit ! ) just get card from Aris or Yani behind bar and ask Cab driver for price BEFORE you get in.
