“Great stay for girls holiday”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

My two friends and I stayed here early June 2014 and met two girls out there. It is a great base, it is so close to the strip but far enough to not be disrupted. Our rooms were well cleaned every 2 days. We didn't really use the kitchen amenities just because food is very cheap in local cafes and restaurants. Also the Sunflower café makes some lovely food too but it is a bit pricier. The pool is clean and quiet. I think other than us, there was probably no more than 5 other people round the pool- it is best to get the green material sunloungers though, the plastic ones aren't the most comfortable. WIFI is also strong when you are round the pool, not as strong in the rooms. We didn't need to use the air con so that wasn't a problem. The only negative thing I can really say is the shower, it is like a hose pipe and so small! But I would still stay here if I returned and definitely recommend it !

Myself and friends have just returned from a short stay in the sunflower. We had a great time. The sunflower is a great base for a stay in Laganas, its far enough away to not be kept awake with the music from the lively strip at night but only a few minutes walk and your on the strip. There was never really a shortage of sunbeds but some of them are plastic and really uncomfortable. The pool was lovely and a nice temperature. I wouldnt call the rooms basic they had exactly what you needed, Bed, wardrobe, bathroom and kitchenette with cooking hobs. I only have a few cons about this property - the shower heads are really old and bad, its like showering under hose pipe when you put your finger over the end, they could do with being replaced. 50Euros for air conditioning is too high, and finally the prices at the pool bar in the accomodation is just abit too expensive, 4.50 for cans of koppaburg and rekordalig when in a shop they charge 1.70 is too much. Overall we had a really good holiday in decent accommodation and i would return, thanks to the lady owner who was very nice and no matter what you asked she could sort it.

Been here a few years now we rent friends accommodation, but use sunflower for breakfast and use the pool as it's big and very very clean. Has small pool for the younger ones, by daughter swam on her own in this pool for the first time this year. It has good surroundings. The toilets are the cleanest I've ever seen in a foreign country. If you have the full English, it's Greek bacon which is cold, but tastes really good. Mavra and George the owners are great and will do any thing for you. It's close to the local corner shop as well. Not used the accommodation here, but if the pool, food and toilets are to go by, they've got to be good.

We came here at the beginning of September 2013. We had a good time and the hotel offered us everything that we needed from our holiday - a good pool, clean rooms and a bar!

Admittedly the hotel is basic but we very rarely spent any time in our room apart from sleeping, pool area was clean and not too busy - we got a sun bed every day so no problems there. It was definitely good value for money.

The lady owner was lovely and friendly, anything we requested we got such as extra towels, kettle etc and always around to answer any of our questions.

It is literally a 5 minute walk from the nightlife which meant we didn't spend any money on taxi's - loads of bars shops etc. Probably a 10-15 minute walk from the beach but quite pleasant to do in the sunshine!

Overall we had a fantastic holiday and it was the perfect location for our party holiday - definitely recommend!

I came here with 5 other girls for our first holiday for 8 nights and I'm so pleased we decided to stay here! The rooms were clean, Mavra (the owner) was lovely and whenever we needed anything she would help us right away! She even saw us off when we left at 5 o'clock in the morning! The pool area was lovely and there was always a group of 6 sun beds together even at 2 o'clock in the afternoon. The hotel is about a 5 minute walk from the strip, and once you're on the strip another 5 minutes to the beach! And even though you're so close to the strip, you can't hear anything back at the hotel at night. We had to pay a little extra for air con and a safe, but it was definitely worth it. We definitely struck lucky with our hotel, and will return here if we come back to Zante!

We have just returned from a short break in Laganas. I stayed at the Sunflower Apts with my wife and four children aged 7,6,4 and 12 months old. We previously had some reservations about being located near the strip, but to be honest the location of the place is about 10 min walk and quite peaceful in comparison to other accommodation in the area. I will break my review down into the positives and negatives to enable you to overview with ease.

Positive:

1. Clean pool which is serviced daily
2. Pool area facilities excellent with clean and modern ablution areas (Ideal for families)
3. Friendly staff- The lady that owns the apartments is very kind and helpful and is always trying to keep the place safe and quiet at late hours.
4. Rooms serviced alternate days( plenty of clean towels and sheets)
5. Sunbeds always available
6. The strip is only 10 mins walk from the apartments(with kids) (Minimal noise during the party hours) due to location of Sunflower
7. The proprietor also offers airport transfers at a competitive rate, compared to the local taxis (17 Euros One Way)
8. Lovely view of the sea from the second floor and pool all from both
9. Transfer time to airport approx 20 mins


Negatives:

1. No lifts ( Two Floors with external steps only)
2. Outdated apartment facilities (Typical Second World country types)
3. They will charge you double for Air Conditioning in a Two bed apartment(due to having a unit in each room >>>35 Euros a week for a one bedroom apartment and 70 Euros respectfully)
4. The local supermarket is expensive (Elena's Mini Market)
5. Beds are hard and take a couple of days to get used to
6. You are refrained from consuming external food or drink around the pool area, even though you are a Self Catering customer

In summary i would recommend and return in the near future

Personal overall rating: 7/10

Room Tip: Opt for a room on the second floor if possible for good sea views

I stayed at the Sunflower Apartments at the beginning of July on a girls holiday. The bedrooms were standard what you expect for what you are paying, they were cleaned every other day and we got bath towels provided. There was the option of Air Condition but we didn't get it and you really don't need it if you just close the shutters and leave the windows open, we opted for a safe for the week which was around 15euros which cost you 3/4euros each depending how many are in your room. The pool is nice with plenty of sunbeds and is open to anyone so friends can go use the pool too, the hotel was just full of 18-20 yr olds and there was a mixture of boys and girls. The apartment is literally 3min walk away from the strip and around 5 mins from the beach, there is a little corner shop 1min walk away. We ate at the hotel a couple of times for breakfast/lunch but its around 5euros would recommend eating when you're on the strip. The owners are really nice and when we needed taxis they would call for them and our friend was ill one night and they went to check on her. There is the rule no boys in your room like everywhere in Zante but I reckon you could easily get away with bringing people back as there is no security on site.
