A lovely hotel overlooking the beach
I would definitely recommend this hotel. It is in a perfect location overlooking the beach and close to amenities. The accommodation was recently renovated and was very good. The staff were lovely - very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was very good.

2/5 Poor

Liked: Cleanliness
Disliked: Staff & service
Ok for 1-2 night stay after / before the flight if your flight take you to Heraklion. Staying longer is a waist of time. There are much better places. About sunset- total lies. There is none. I wonder what made people elaborate on beautiful sunsets. 100% lie. As for the staff, there were just 3 people there. Cleaning person was nice. Front desk person, Xenia, was also ok. Third person, Nicololay, was rather rude. Good breakfast, bad dinner- very limited food choices, no drinks provided, not even water. Water is not drinkable there, and they charge you 2.50 euros for each bottle. On a positive side, it's very close to the airport. It's also on a bus line, and it takes 20 minutes to get to Heraklion (but I recommend saving your time for more interesting places). We stayed there for 3 nights, and then went to the west of the island. I regret staying that long.

A relaxing, family run hotel on the water front
I was looking for a relaxing beach holiday, with a room that overlooked the sea, and that is exactly what I got. I had a double room, with a large balcony that had beautiful sea views. I also liked that my room had separate living and sleeping rooms, so I felt that had plenty of space. The staff were friendly and laid back, and the hotel had a pleasant, relaxed atmosphere. When I arrived, I upgraded to half-board, and the evening meals were always tasty and had a good variety of meat and veggie options. The hotel is close to bus stops that can take you to various sights. It was 20 minutes by bus to Heraklion and only 15 minutes to get to the airport, which was very convenient. I was able to catch the bus back to the airport for only 2 euros.

Fabulous beachfront location
We have just returned from a 10 day stay at Sunset Beach hotel and are already looking forward to returning next year. We arrived and were greated by Nikos who was very friendly and could not do enough to help us and that continued throughout our stay. The sea and beachfront location could not be beaten and the sunsets were spectacular. The rooms were very spacious and cleaned every day by the hard working cleaner. We had a room by the pool which suited us as having a young son we could pop in and out when we wanted which was very convenient. Throughout our 10 day stay both Nikos's made our holiday. They both went out of their way to ensure we had a good time.
