Hotel Golden Sun
Ranked #5 of 6 Hotels in Falassarna
Reviewed 25 May 2013

I stayed in Golden Sun for two nights in May. The best thing for me were the owners, in particular Nikki, a very kind lady. Accommodation is vey basic but you get the feeling of living in a traditional Cretan house. I was placed in a single room, small but nice, with a little kitchen and a balcony. The place is surrounded by plants nd patios, which is very nice, in particular because the weather was very hot. But two points that need a lot of improvement: the bathroom was old and not very clean (there was a dead insect on the floor and remained there fir the entire stay) and the toilet flush did no work, there was a bucket for water!

There is a shop around the corner and the anazing beach is about 10 min walk down the hill.
Overall a nice experience but very basic.

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.

The owner was extermely kind and hospitable. We were assigned a great spacious room with romantic finishings and a lovely view on the sea. Breakfast was good and I found the place very relaxing with lush greenery surrounding the hotel. I would recommend this place to all those seeking quiet relaxing moments.
