This is hotel, where I'd like to be back. We spend fantastic time in this place - it is really Royal Sun! Theatrical view to Chania downtown and harbour, comfort and attention - there three words define that place the best! Fantastic and very helpfull staff, perfect cuicine and rich breakfast. Magnificent service - shuttle bus to downtown and back to hotel.
Visit and stay in this hotel - You will be satisfied!

Really good value hotel where the standards are set very high indeed. Nice room with balcony and views over the town and out to sea. Lovely pool which is a good size. Amazing choice at breakfast and all other meals outstanding with ample portions to put it mildly. Free half-hourly shuttle bus into town with service starting at 10.30. If you need to start your day any earlier a taxi is only 7 euros. Staff are friendly and incredibly helpful. If we return to this end of Crete, and I am sure we will, I wouldn't consider staying at any other hotel. For us, The Royal Sun couldn't have been any better.

Room Tip: Worth paying a bit extra for a room at the front with a stunning view.

We stayed 3 nights here. Close to airport has a free shuttle best beds in the world the restaurant is very nice. Same food as in town but better flavor and price! The view is stunning staff is nice. Very very clean I would definitely come back. The balcony I fell in love with nice place to sit and relax. Only cons would be no English on TV and only news channel. No plug for my bath tub and no conditioner.

If your in Chania this is the place to stay . The hotel is is on a hill with amazing views and quiet at night with a huge pool. I highly recommend eating at the hotel ,great food ,huge portions , fresh and cheaper than town.
There beds are the most comfortable I have slept in. A huge thank you to Cristos, Nikos, Stavros, George ,Jannis and Rula who could not do enough for us .Well done all ! We will see you next year

Stayed 3 nights at either end of our trip to Crete - it's near Chania Airport, so convenient. The view over Chania is amazing, especially at night.

Our room was not large, but contained the most comfortable bed in the world - just what was needed at that point!

The staff could not do enough for us - they were magnificent and very friendly. The restaurant was also very good.

We can hardly wait until our next visit!

The hotel overlooks Chania and the sea with spectacular views from the pool, bar and room balconies. The service is excellent and they gave me early check in when I arrived on a morning flight. Free high speed wi-fi was included along with breakfast which was good quality. Although the hotel is a 30 minute walk into town there is a regular shuttle into Chania that you can book at reception.

Room Tip: Book a sea facing room, some rooms face the car park.

Came here beginning of May just myself and my husband. First impressions where good. Checked in with no hassle helpful receptionist who gave us all Information required. The room was nice very clean and we'll maintained. We did swap for a sea view room though which was beautiful all brand new refurbished. You could still smell the fresh wallpaper just spotless. Beds were so comfy, beautiful shower, fantastic view over the sea and town. The food is fantastic really delicious and you get so much. The staff are very polite friendly and helpful. I really can't find anything severely wrong here I've paid much more for 5 star establishments and got far less. Just wish they had actual room service instead of fetching it yourself. Breakfast has a large selection and the pool is brand new and kept extremely clean and spotless I would definitely come back two big thumbs up for the royal sun. They also provide a free mini bus into town and back :)
