I have been very remiss here. I thought I had posted this last August . Time to rectify!!! This was our second visit in 9 months to the Royal Sun and we were greeted like family. From the taxi driver who remembered us from the year before (we were picked up and taken back to the airport courtesy of the...

Was a nice clean hotel out of the busyness of downtown yet just minutes away! The staff was awesome and the food was delicious!! Really felt like a home away from home. To top it all off the view and pool are amazing!! Make sure to order the stuffed chicken and mountain tea while you are there!! Loved it and...

Just spent 4 days at this little gem of a hotel! Very clean. Great location just 15 mins from Chania airport and 10 mins drive in to town. The free shuttle bus service is great and drops you right in the heart of the town. The staff were amazing, very friendly and helpful. We must highlight Rula and Eva, the...

Third visit to the Royal Sun since May last year and yet again can only sing praises. From the minute we walked into reception to the warmest of welcomes from Dimitris, everything was just perfect. Although the visit coincided with poorish weather, we were comfortable and cosy in our beautiful room overlooking the sea and the town, and the restaurant/bar...

This hotel is perched at the edge of Chania town, on the mountain ridge overlooking the whole bay. The architect has made best use of this spectacular location, with large windows all along the lounge and restaurant, so it's a great place to sit and enjoy the views any time of day. Considering the prices, everything is very good value...

Reading the reviews of the Royal Sun impressed me, therefore inspiring me to book. This hotel is absolute fabulous. We stayed here in August 2016 for 10 nights and it was just the most pleasant experience. We paid for the room with a sea view (worth the money), it was super clean, modern decor, double beds, big balcony overlooking the...

We went here for drinks to watch the sunset. The views were unbeatable. You can see all of Chania below you. The hotel seemed very nice though we did not see any of the rooms. Service was good, plenty of parking. If you stay here you need to find a way to get to the Old Town. Not sure if...

We really like this hotel. The view from our room can't be beat. The balcony is large, the bed is comfortable. Everything seems very clean. The breakfast buffet was much better than expected. Many options and fresh squeezed orange juice. The only complaint is that the walls are a pretty thin. We could hear a lot of noise from outside...

We wanted a hotel close to the airport because we had a 6am flight and it was upon that basis that we selected the Royal Sun. What we found was a very spacious modern hotel with sweeping views of the city and the sea. We upgraded to an ocean view room and enjoyed an early evening glass of wine on...
