I seriously don’t know why this hotel only got 3 stars because it actually has a much higher standard. But first things first… Found a great deal on bravofly.com and trivago.ie for Crete! Fly Ryanair from Dublin to Chania, in Crete. The hotel is very close to the airport and since you’ll be at least two people it’s cheapest to share a taxi, costs €13 and takes you 25 minutes. The Royal Sun hotel (100% on Tripadvisor) is situated in the mountains of Crete, so every room has a stunning view across the ocean. It’s a super modern and puristic hotel that features a beautiful pool in the palm tree garden from where you can look down to Crete’s sea. The hotel also has a restaurant on site, so either dine there or go into Chania town to spoil yourself with fresh sea food and Cretan specials! For an additional €8 pp per day you can book breakfast in the hotel. You have to be quick though! You’re flying out next week! It’s worth it, Crete is already now a beautifully warm spot!
