An absolute gem!
The Royal Sun is a truly lovely hotel, perfectly positioned and totally unique. Overlooking the beautiful town of Chania & the sea, the views are stunning. The staff really make it, especially in the restaurant where are they are warm & super friendly. Also, the cooking here is amongst the best I’ve had in Greece. The pool is peaceful and tranquil and sunbeds always available. Sometimes the dogs barking in the morning can be annoying, but not enough to spoil your enjoyment. Special thanks to both Maria’s, Roula, Nikos and Christos and to Eva at front desk who was super helpful when I asked to moved rooms. We will return for sure! Room tip: for the best sea views book a superior double, the

8/10 Very good

Good choice!
Great location no offers regular and frequent shuttle into Chania. The description detail said it is 0.9 miles from the Allied war cemetery. It’s more like miles. All in all a great stay and excellent breakfast overlooking the city!
