Falasarna is a very beautiful and quiet place. Hotel Golden Sun has very basic facilities, but it's clean and friendly. Location is perfect to discover Western part of Crete including Balos lagoon (boat trips from Kissamos which is nearby) and of course Falasarna itself with its wonderful sandy beaches. Hotel staff provided us information about the region and told us about free excursion to Ancient Falasarna (very interesting but be prepared to climb the mountains).
We stayed in triple room which was very simple and small for 3 adults. It wasn't a problem for us, but if you are very much used to comfort, better think twice. Furniture and bathroom facilities were old. On the other hand, we had spotless cleaning service every day, and I liked the mattress on the bed very much, it was really good and comfortable (I have troubles with my back and always pay attention to such things).
You also should be aware that Falasarna region has very beautiful nature, sights, sea and beaches, but you won't find big hotels, bars or anything, no nightlife at all. Few small tavernas with nice local food, but nothing more than that.
