Sun, Sea & Raki!!!

"We booked this holiday as a family get together with two 'twenty something' daughters with no knowledge of Crete or Hersonissos and we have to say we came up trumps! George & Poppy were fantastic hosts and nothing was too much trouble. The apartments although basic were very clean, comfortable and well kept. The pool area was great and good quality food was served at anytime and at reasonable prices. BBQ on the Sunday is a must! (so much food!)but you can always wash it down with the Raki which flows day and night! Bus stop outside the apartments takes you along to the other resorts at a cheap cost and taxis are also cheap for anywhere else. Town Centre was a 10-15min stroll where everything was available so the apartments were ideally situated for peace and quiet away from the main hub. We went expecting it to be a one off holiday but would definately return and would only stay at the sun & sea!"

"Myself and my Boyfriend had a wonderful week at the sun and sea apartments. Our room was clean (very lucky 2 get 301 with the huge balcony) and the food and drink was great. Watch out for the free shots! George, Poppy and Spiro were very welcoming and made our holiday special. The resort is about a 15 minute work where the bars and good resturants are. Overall a fantastic holiday and we will definately go back."

"wooooooo crete!!! hey raki raki raki!!! hersonissos is a fantastic holiday resort for anyone. the nightlife is great, with lots of bars to choose from, giving you free shots to tempt you in. the sun and sea apts is family run, george, poppy & spiros are all lovely and great fun. the apts are brilliant and very clean. the bar which george has open till whenever the last people leave. every sunday night there is a bbq which is fantastic, and a must!!followed by greek dancin around the pool and eventually EVERYBODY gets thrown in the pool. kitchen applicances are limited, only having the absolutely essential. overall a 9/10, i'd definately visit sun and sea again!!!"

"With thanks to George and Poppy (and little spiros!!!) for making our holiday amazing!! RAKI! The rooms are kept to a high standard of cleanliness and buying the aircon is a definete must!! We went to Hersonissos for the nightlife and we wer not disapointed. With free shots offered at every club and bar, it was certainly a cheap (yet great) night out!! Also there is a BBQ every sunday night and its just great fun!!!"

"Just returned from a lovely two weeks at the Sun & Sea Apartments.

George and Poppy have taken over from Manos and family and are doing an excellent job of looking after their guests.

Sunday night bar-b-que was great value for money and a great way to get to know other guests, however, be prepared to get wet, most people ended up in the pool.

The apartments are kept clean and tidy, equipment as standard for Greece, if there is one thing missing which would be useful it's a kettle, if you have a travel kettle it's worth packing. Managed with a saucepan, no problem.

Sun and Sea has a good swimming pool, we were in room 101 and it was about 10 paces from our front door, kept spotless as were all other areas.

Crete is a lovely island, we had a car for a week and managed to get around quite well, word of warning, watch where you park it, signs are not clear or don't exist, I managed to pick up a parking ticket.

This place is on the list for a return visit.

"It was our first time to crete and we loved it, the appartments were great, the host Manos was a great guy. Unfortunately him and his wife have moved on to another part of the island so you wont get the usual entertainment anymore but still a great place to stay. Star beach is just behind the appartments, its also and easy walk in into town. Highly recommend this place and area due to it being nice and quiet."

" wot a excellant holiday! it was amazing! the staff- manos and fredom were so lovely, the room was perfect so clean and a very good size. manos and fredom took the time to learn everyones name and to teach the younger children to speak some greek. every morning they offered FREE tea or coffee with a piece of cake, and also throughout the day a free shooter- non alcoholic for the children! manos is an excellant cook, very cheap to eat there and very good for your money. we ate out twice in 2 weeks but was just not worth it! nothing was to much for either of them!

once a week manos offered an all you can eat bbq which was gr8, both times it ended up in him chucking everyone in the pool was a gr8 laugh!

the apartments are in a gr8 place star beech is not far at all which has lots to do- water sports, pools, the beech obvisously, bars and a mini waterpark for littleones and older. there are plenty of shops too, i spent a fortune! and hiring a quad bike is a must, it was a gr8 way to see the island. we all enjoyed it that much that we are returning in august for 2 weeks!

"Sold by Thomas cook as a quiet apartment complex, this place was anything and everything but. Nice enough apartments especially if you get the top apartment 301 which has a huge balcony to sunbathe on. Bed made if you are lucky, we kept getting new folded sheets left on the bed for us to make ourselves. Only eat out as the moment you eat in the apartments they become over run with ants.

Pleasant enough staff as long as you are not complaining or seeking the holy grail of a late check out room. Then they turn surly and refuse to make eye contact to tell you none available. No luggage room for a late check out either, you leave your cases by the pool and hope for the best.

I’d recommend to anyone who feels the need to go away and see drunken people dancing on the bar or swimming in the pool at night. The bar also stays 'open till late' so if you want a good nights sleep, stay away from the apartments until 4am when the bar will hopefully shut and the 2cd's of Black Lace and Destiny's Child have been put away for the evening. Decent supermarket over the road, and a reasonable walk to the main drag of shops.
