We stayed here recently as two couples for a week - we had two apartments with a connecting internal door which worked well for us but we would not be happy staying in a single apartment on its own.

Pros:
The swimming pool and terrace area was great to cool off after a day at the beach and has a lovely view.
There are a few good (standard fish/meat/pizza) restaurants nearby.
Air conditioning worked well.
It was a good, comfortable, clean apartment, albeit a little tired and lacking quality furnishings, also brightly painted.
Balcony was small but useful for drying wet clothes and gave a pretty good view over the area and water.
Full sized fridge and freezer.

Cons:
Location - the apartment is in Ciovo. This is an insanely busy area in high season. The local beach is a 5 min walk down the hill and a very hot 10 min walk up, even when fit. The local beaches are small and crowded. A walk at 8am showed that most of the beach area has already been reserved by people who have left bed mats/towels with rocks on them overnnight to reserve their space, even though there is hardly anybody at the beach yet! Even throughout the day these mats remain here and some owners don't show up to use them. Have seen this in Europe but not to the extent of Ciovo.
There are limited areas for people to walk to the shops/restaurants so most are on the narrow roads with the cars dodging in and out.
Saturday is the travel day for the whole 'island'. We left early to avoid the 11am rush but it still took us over 1 hr 40 mins to travel 2km to get off the island which is only serviced by one bridge. We saw huge traffic delays here for no apparent reason.
The apartment is difficult to find even with a GPS as the street numbers are not in order. A local map would have been handy.
Apartment - The apartment was not well equipped - no dish washing detergent/cloths, no bin bags, only two wine glasses for four people etc.
Wifi was frustrating - we had to sit on the steps outside the apartment most of the time to use it. There is a laptop in the foyer but this was incredibly slow so was not used.

Would we stay here again?
Probably not. Whilst this seems like a negative review the apartment worked ok for us so if the things mentioned here dont bother you the apartment could be perfect.
We found the beach at Slatine to be fantastic and spent two days here. We would probably look for somewhere nearer to Slatine instead.

We enjoyed a two week stay in apartment Royale on the first floor which consisted of two rooms both with their own bathrooms and small kitchen facility . The larger of the two rooms had a balcony just big enough for the 3 of us to sit out and eat and had a lovely view over the local beach. The second room had a very small balcony. As one large apartment it was great but would not book them separately . It was situated with a 5 minute walk to the local beach which although small was pretty , lovely sea and friendly . A 15 min walk to the main beach where we caught the boat taxi to Trogir . There are 2 local restaurants within 5 mins walk both of which served lovely food and a small supermarket round the corner. The owners were very helpful. The pool was very clean . Would recommend it .

We spent a week in a two person apartment, called: "superior". The villa has an own website, there are many beautiful pictures, luxury conditions shown. The reality is quite different: ripped bed, the mattress is uncomfortable, needs to be replaced. Minimal sound insulation between the rooms, for example there is a door between the appartments, the door is hidden with a wardrobe.. . Under the bed and under the table there was lots of dust, it seems that is not properly cleaned. The dishes in the cupboard are also dirty. The umbrella holder on the balcony was with black mildew and dirty! There is a sea view but obscures much of the neighboring houses. Water and electricity operate, that was the only positive. The water heater (bojler)and refrigerator work in the bedroom!, both are noisy, so we often woke up because of them.
"There is a free wifi internet whole of the villa" :not exactly true, its is available if you stay next to the door of your apartment. When you are in the bed you can not use wifi. It is a joke!!!
You can buy this quality much cheaper....
There are more restaurants nearby, but smoke by every table, waitress's response: "we are outside!" Yes, and we are in EU!
This area of island Ciovo is noisy, a lots of scooter, cars, not for relaxing. I did not expect that Ciovo is so close to the airport:you can see and hear each plane,during landing less than 100meters above you .Terrible.
We went every day to an other area: Arbanija and Slatine, there was more calm, piece, quiet, big and great beaches,( but you can hear the planes too) Only this places rescued our holiday.

We have spent two weeks in villa in September and it exceeded our expectations.Our apartment were modern,spacious and with stunning sea view.But what we liked even more than it is a local beach situated around 300 meters from villa.It was pure enjoy for us in cristal blue watter and wonderful nature around us.Beach was not crowded in Seprember and there is many parts covered with tree shade that protected us from sun and left us stay on the beach all day without sunburning.

Owners are friendly and professional,will give you valuable tips on arrival but they are respecting our privacy,left their contact if we will need them, and we liked it.

Trogir is around 4 km far away and there are boat lines every half of hour to it.Also there are bus lines to Trogir but we did not use it during our stay.

Owners waited us on airport and made a transfer with their big car to villa.It was very good to not worry about it after we have landed.

We can reccommned this villa for anyone who is looking for relaxing beach holidays and visiting local restaurants in old town Trogir.We have visited also National park Krka,Split and island Hvar during our stay using local transportation and without any problems.

My husband and I had the opportunity to stay here for an extended time and it was wonderful... absolutely everything we needed. We came to rest, relax, and meditate and we had the perfect place for us to do so. The apartment was quiet, clean, nicely furnished, open and sunny. The patio gave us a great view of the sea with gorgeous skies.

Josep and Vanda were the perfect hosts, always willing to help us with all our needs and answer our questions, yet gave us the privacy we needed. As world travelers themselves, they understand what a guest needs to be comfortable and have a great stay and they provide it all with kindness and a light heart. Happy to make us happy.

The apartments are close to grocery stores, a short walk to the pharmacy, bakery, coffee shops and restaurants and to the sea. They are clean, modern, and always well tended to.
If anything comes up, they respond quickly to find the perfect solution with your comfort in mind.

They also offer shuttle service to and from the airport if you need and for such a reasonable price. The airport lost our luggage and Josep and Vanda took care of it all for us. They really go above and beyond what you would find anywhere else.

If you are looking for a great value, a great place to stay to enjoy your vacation and honest, trustworthy, and dependable people, stay at Villa Sunrise Apartments.

Room Tip: We really loved the one bedroom apartment on the second floor.
