Pleasant location, good food, we had a small room but was cleaned well. We had no air conditioning in our room. Position of hotel is elevated giving a lovely view of hills and the sea which is approx 15 min walk - coming back is up hill! I would recommend this hotel.

My partner and I visited the Hotel Golden Sun in early September 2005 and found it generally acceptable, our room was larger than we had expected though spartan and lacking in character.
Although the Golden Sun's website advertises air-conditioning in all rooms the hotel has been enlarged since the site was updated and some rooms lack air/con. The hotel's position up the hill above the coastal strip of Adele Kambos gives it a good view towards Rethymnon and the sea and some distance from the express highway, which runs behind many of the more coastal hotels but is still audible, especially at night.
Catering on our half-board, buffet service basis was generous in quantity with particular emphasis on salads. Hot (or rather warm) dishes tended towards the safe and bland. One sweet choice was available each night but fruit was always an option.

• Arriving in the early hours of the morning the overworked night porter gave us the wrong directions to the room. There was no help with our cases up the numerous stairs to our first floor room.
• There were no towels in the bathroom, even though checkout time is midday.
• The bracket holding the shower was broken and would not support the showerhead (fortunately I was able to rig it temporarily).
• When showering the water ran down the shower screen and under it to flood the bathroom floor. Twice this was reported and twice we were told that the handyman would deal with it but in 7 days nothing was done.
• During our visit the housekeeping service changed our bed-sheets and towels only once instead of every two days and the floor was never swept!
• The vanity mirror in the bedroom was set too high to be seen from the stool in front of it.
• The wardrobe had no handles, and never had any to begin with.
• The bathroom window was not properly set in the walls and daylight was visible between the walls and the frame at the top and bottom.

This is not a hotel I would recommend to anyone with walking difficulties because of its hill-side position and numerous staircases.
Overall the hotel does well on location and price but let's itself down on numerous small details of finish and day-to-day care.
