I cannot speak highly enough of SunRise suites and their staff. The suites are spacious, nicely done out and those facing the sea have stunning panoramic views of the whole bay. A short steep walk into town and the beach is only 5-10mins. We were well looked after by Katarina and the manager Dmitiris, both of whom could not have been more hospitable during our week stay and we would certainly look to return on a future holiday.

We had a fantastic holiday at Sunrise Suites and in Kalyves in general. The weather was lovely and not too hot in this part of the world due to the sea breeze; around 32deg C when we were there at the beginning of August. We flew, as a family of mum, dad and a 5 year old, direct from Bristol to Chania which is a 35min, 40Euros taxi drive away. Sunrise suites is not lavish but is very clean (including the pool which was cleaned daily), has all the facilities you need for a very comfortable holiday and the service from the staff is delightful. Dimitrius the manager was very helpful from the time we booked the holiday months previously and right through the holiday itself. His assistant Katerina was a bundle of joy and made us very welcome and worked non-stop. The complex is a nice small size of only 27, well equipped apartments. A buffet breakfast was served by Katerina at the dining area overlooking the bay. There was free WiFi in the reception for those who required it. The views from the (spacious) balcony were spectacular and the journey to Kalyves beach/village was only 5 mins, albeit via a steep hill. Kalyves was a small, yet friendly and safe village with all the facilities you need including many beach side restaurants, supermarkets, post office, pharmacy etc. The price of everything in Crete is a lot cheaper than the rest of Europe. We often had a hearty dinner (including drinks) for the family for around 30 Euros. We didn't have a car and so we alternated between having a day at the pool, a day at Kalyves beach and village and visiting the nearby picturesque town of Chania by bus were you could take a boat or horse-drawn carriage tour.
Being pedantic the only improvements that could be made is that there was air conditioning in only one room, the other room was smaller and contained the kitchen. There was only a shower and no bath and occasionally a number of local children from the owner's family would use the pool at the same time.
Overall it was a great experience and we will certainly recommend it and are planning to visit again, probably with a hire car to see more sights (although the driving in Crete was something to behold).

Room Tip: Rooms on the higher floors diectly facing the swimming pool have the best overall views of the surrounding landscape.

I have just returned from Kalyves having stayed at the Sunrise Suites...the apartment was excellent, spacious, well equipped and air conditioned...we were not disappointed having asked for a sea view..it was stunning.
Dimitris was helpful and efficient from the moment we arrived, he manages the properties with real warmth and expertise.
I didn't use any of the on site facilities as my friend and I wanted a beach holiday but the pool was a good size and always looked spotless, it was a favourite spot for families...
The walk to and from the beach was a bit of a trek.. not suitable for those with walking difficulties as it was a rough track and quite steep ... and pitch black at night..so take a torch !
All in all very nice apartments, to be thoroughly recommended... Thanks Dimitris and your staff .. here, as promised is my review ! :)

Room Tip: Ask for a first floor sea view room whenever possible !

Sunrise Suites

Having booked flights to Chania we decided upon the Sunrise Suites after reading the wonderful reviews. We booked directly with Dimitris after e mailing to check out the rates and decided to stay on a bed and breakfast basis. We corresponded several times before our trip to ask questions about car hire and taxis and always received helpful and prompt replies. We travelled on 29 June and drove from the airport in the hire car. 45 minutes later (and with Dimitris’ directions) we arrived at the Sunrise Suites and were greeted by Katerina, who showed us to our apartment. The place was very spacious with a sizeable balcony overlooking Souda Bay – such wonderful views. The apartment has a fridge, two ring hob (which we never used) and sufficient crockery and cutlery for snacks and basic meals. The place is kept spotlessly clean. It was early afternoon when we arrived and we decided to get some basic supplies at the Inka supermarket on the coast road going out of Kalyves. After unpacking and relaxing we set off to walk the few minutes down into the village and were greeted by Dimitris, who told us of a shortcut down to the village avoiding quite a bit of the windy road. In the village there are various shops, a bakery, laundry, ATMs, bars and restaurants. Many of the restaurants are on the beachfront where it is wonderful to sit and eat whilst watching the sun go down. After a steep climb back up the hill we ended our evenings over a nightcap on the balcony listening to the waves washing onto the rocks and watching the planes coming into land and taking off (no noise experienced). We enjoyed breakfasts prepared by Katerina which are buffet style before going out for the day in the car to various beaches and into Chania town. Breakfast takes place on a raised terrace with fabulous views out to the bay. We didn’t use the swimming pool, though it was popular with families in particular. We enjoy snorkelling and enjoyed visited many different beaches, some favourites recommended by Katerina. We had a thoroughly enjoyable stay and would love to return and explore more of what Crete has to offer. Thanks to Dimitris and Katerina for making us feel really welcome. Marie and Richard

Room Tip: Higher floors have great views and some have larger balconies, however these may cost more

We absolutely loved our stay at the Sunrise Suites. The hotel is made up of about 27 rooms/apartments and therefore is just a nice size, not too big. The standard of the rooms were well above what you'd expect from a hotel with this rating and the room, pool and whole place was impeccably clean. The pool is lovely, we could always get sunbeds and it was never too crowded, just a few people playing/relaxing in it, just perfect. The guests were a mixture- couples, families etc including Greek holidaymakers which I think is a good sign and I never heard a bad word about the hotel or Kalyves from anyone. Kalyves is a small unspoilt village/little town and if you want to get away from more "tourist" areas is perfect. We were met personally, even though it was the early hours of the morning by the hotel manager, Dimitris on our arrival which was about 12.30pm as our flight was delayed. He showed us to our room and gave us some introductory information-what fantastic service!! We had a nice breakfast every day on the rooftop terrace with lovely views of the sea served by the wonderful Katarina. She is a fantastic host too, so friendly, cheerful and helpful-could not be better! We'd see her later on at the pool, it had a small bar for drinks and snacks and Katerina would be there to look after us. She's lovely. From the hotel it is only about a 5 minute walk to the sea/village (down a fairly steep hill-no problem for us though). This hotel is lovely and is extremely well run by the manager, Dimitris. He and Katarina are really hard workers, backed up by staff such as the cleaning lady(don't know her name but she was equally helpful, friendly and efficient). Dimitris and Katarina are really helpful and will do anything to make your stay enjoyable and pleasant.
Well done and thank you so much for a lovely holiday!!! Jon, Alison, Melissa and Ella.
