This review is based on a one week stay at Sunrocks in a Junior Suite in August 2011.
The hotel, and indeed the overall experience of the holiday, was wonderful. This begins upon arrival; guests are greeted by the manger, given a welcome drink and shown to their rooms. The atmosphere is relaxed and welcoming and, of course, the views are amazing.
The rooms are cut into the rock of the caldera lip and, as such, are small but well-equipped and are a cool refuge from the summer sun. Additionally, rooms have their own outside areas and sun-loungers overlooking the caldera, which offer more privacy than the poolside loungers.
The food is excellent, in particular the breakfasts and the special 'Katikides Experience' tasting menu dinner.
The staff deserve a special mention (thank you, Alex). They are friendly, helpful and knowledgable about the island and potential activities, including in particular restaurants and local wine. It is obvious that careful thought has gone into the overall guest experience - one is continually surprised by small but charming touches, such as all the staff remembering the guests' names and a mobile phone being provided on arrival which can be used to contact reception around the clock (to arrange taxis back to the hotel late at night, for instance).
Overall, a hotel which cannot be recommended highly enough.
