The hotel is family run and the staff are all fantastic, very helpful and friendly, especially when having to deal with COVID safety at breakfast time considering the language barriers. The hotel itself is of a good standard, very clean and tidy, and the pool was fantastic although very cold! It is situated close to Kissamos with restaurants, cafes and a few shops. The only downside was that we would have liked to have had tea and coffee making facilities in our room. It is situated right on the beach, although the beach is very rocky and we travelled to Falassarna and Elafonisi Beaches which are both absolutely stunning, but a car was definitely needed to get to these. If you are wanting lots of shops and restaurants then we would recommend a 50 min trip to Chania, which had everything.

My boyfriend and I have just come back from a week’s stay at Sunny Bay, and oh, how I wish we could have stayed longer! Everything about our stay was perfect :) The hotel is located right on the beach, and we had a sea view room which was heavenly. Sitting on the balcony looking over the ocean and falling asleep to the sound of the waves was incredible! We had breakfast included, which was delicious, and we loved eating our breakfast right next to the sea - the perfect way to start the day. The location of the hotel is excellent, just a short walk from the tavernas of Kissamos, and the beach is much quieter and more relaxing than at the hotels on the other side of the town. The beach is sandy but quite stony which can make it difficult getting out into the sea (my partner had no problem, but I have sensitive feet!), so I bought some sea shoes which solved the issue - I recommend bringing some with you or buying some from Kissamos when you are there - and then you can frolic in the sea to your heart’s content! The sea is gorgeous - shallow and clear, and a joy to splash around in. The hotel is ideally located to explore the gorgeous beaches and sights of western Crete. There is a bus stop right round the corner that takes you to Chania for only 5 euros (journey is about an hour), such a gorgeous city with a lovely Venetian harbour and amazing restaurants. We also went on a boat trip to Balos lagoon which was so, so breathtakingly beautiful. The staff at the hotel were brilliant and so helpful, always happy to help us organise trips and to give us advice. This hotel is family run and it really shows - the staff are wonderful and made us feel so welcome right from the start. They have a resident dog, Lucy, who is so lovely and friendly, and that made the hotel feel even more homely! The room was great, with a big comfy king size bed, and the maids were excellent, providing us with clean towels every day and keeping everything spotless. Thank you Sunny Bay for making our holiday so special! We will DEFINITELY be back, and I can’t wait until I’m sat on the balcony watching the waves again! :)

We would probably rate this hotel with 2/5 but the perfect service we received from the front desk clerk deserves an extra "bonus"- he was very friendly and helpful and this was the bright side of the hotel, besides the perfect location right on the beach edge. We reserved the hotel for only 2 nights in order to be close to Balos beach, and for that it was a good choice, however the hotel itself was a little disappointment: the room was not well maintained- the balcony door could not be locked, the bathroom door was difficult to close, the closet had no shelfs and the room looked old. The breakfast and dinner were very basic, and due to the Covid situation the way the hotel manage the service was cumbersome and because the service stuff had language issues and also served as the cleaning stuff made the food serving really not user-friendly. to summarize: for the price tag of the hotel (we paid around 160 EUR per night) I would expect a better service and maintenance. some of the drawback are probably related to the covid 19 rules so can be forgiven but still, this hotel does not deserve a rating higher than average, even considering the friendly front desk guy.

From the owners to the entire team at Sunny Bay, my sincere thanks for making my stay a most pleasant one. Traveling alone and last minute can be risky, specially in today’s times. Between the service, the advice on what to see, where to eat and do as a local, I could not have been more pleasantly surprised. I chose this hotel because of the magnificent location which makes it possible to take single day trips easily, and just 45-minutes away from Chania airport. Little did I know that this family owned and operated hotel would become my home away from home. Their personal dedication is outstanding!
