“A great family place!”
Reviewed 6 October 2012

Outside of Chania but still a short bus ride away, this place is close to 4 nice beaches (we recommend the Iguana Beach, go north, then take a left and go over the hill -- volleyball, nice facilities, and kid friendly). There are two supermarkets very close by (Inca is perferred). There are a variety of restaurants in the area too but we cooked our own meals in the room.

We had a room in the back which got the full brunt of the sun in the afternoon. The air conditioner wasn't working right when we first came in but it was fixed while we went to the beach. A nice kitchenette and a very small shower space -- typical in Europe, you get used to it.

Virginia and her husband and her two daughters made us feel right at home. They provided anything we asked for and helped us with our travel arrangements. Be sure to allocate a day in downtown Chania but our chief recommendation is Elafonisi Beach, one of the best beaches in the world. It is a curvy 2-hour bus ride (bus stop is only 5 blocks away) but the clearest water we've ever seen, pink coral sand, and excellent beach facilities. Just be sure to put on lots of sunscreen every hour -- the sun is much stronger here than in California or Hawaii.

We would definitely come back again and stay at Sun Clty for a longer period of time (and with a rental car this time)! This place was much friendly than other places in the area and we felt we were part of their family.

Thank you Ginny! We'll be back...

Room Tip: If you mind noise, get a room in the back but note it will be hot at the end of the day. The AC onl...

great hotel in chania it is well positioned just outside of chania, it has lovely clean air-conditioned rooms and a nice pool also there are a good number of eating places near bye which are very good and at least 3 very good beaches within a few minutes walk, but what really makes this hotel special are the owners who make you feel like one of there family nothing is too much trouble for them. so take a bow gina, manolis, maria. and little iilanna. we will come back. angus and yvonne.

This hotel had everything we needed and then some. First of all, location is superb with walking distance to beach, restaurants, clubs, supermarkets and even Chania town but still in a peaceful and quiet surroundings. Facitilies are nice, good pool and beautiful garden, clean and spacious rooms with nice balcony, fridge and stove for self catering. Best of all, service is excellent: not in your face but everyone there is ready to fulfil your every wish right away. They make you feel like you're their guest, not a customer. And all this with really reasonable price, to say the least.

When we go back to Crete, we will stay in Sun City.

The hotel is family owned and run, it is staffed mainly by the family members of the owners.
This gives the guests a very nice warm family feeling, without being intrusive.
After a couple of days you feel like a family member on vacation.

The location is nice, close to two supermarkets, with the bus station close by.

As other reviews have stated, the shower is small (60x60 cm), and is the reason why I cannot give 5 stars. But I've spent a small fraction of my time in the shower, and the memory fades away in the face of the the nice sandy beaches and blue waters ... so it did not affect my experience.

I would come back, and hope I'll get to.

Like many others we just keep coming back to Sun City. Gina, Manolis, and their lovely daughters Maria and Ilianna make you so welcome and are always extremely kind and helpful. lt really is like being part of the family. The rooms are clean and comfortable, the pool and garden are peaceful, well maintained and perfect for relaxing and chilling out. Sun City is just the right size - big enough to cater for an interesting mix of guests from many different places, but small enough to remain friendly and personal. There are great beaches within easy walking distance and some good tavernas (try the Pergola). The beautiful harbour town of Chania, with its many shops and restaurants, is only a ten minute bus ride away. You will always find new friends at Sun City, or meet up with old ones. We have visited eight times now, and will most definitely be back. Thanks Gina and family for another fantastic holiday!

Our first visit to SUN CITY was in 1992 (twenty years ago) And we have returned every year since.
Now that we are retired we are very lucky because we can now visit twice a year. We were over for a month mid May-June and had a splendid holiday with Old Aquaintances who also visit every year and
made new friends who were there for the first time. One thing we all agree on is that once you have been to SUN CITY you will want to return. The high standard of accommodation is still being maintained.
BUT BEST OF ALL, THE FRIENDLINESS OF GINA, MANOLIS AND THEIR FAMILY & STAFF.
MANY NEW INNOVATIONS IN THE IMMEDIATE AREA.
We will be back in September.

We have been going to Sun City for the past eight years,On our first visit my wife and myself knew this was a very special place.The owners Gina and Manolis and their two wonderful girls are kind, caring and considerate
The rooms are very clean,with air con,fridge,small kitchenette and balcony.The rooms are cleaned every day and fresh towels every other day.
Excellent facilties with swimming pool and pool bar.Breakfast and snacks are available at pool bar.
Lovely beaches 10 minute walk.Restaurants 100yards.it is a must to visit the lovely town of Chania 4km away,bus rans every 30 minutes(bus stop 50 yards from Sun City)
The White mountains which you can see from Sun City are are spectacular well worth a visit if you hire a car.
Will return again next year
