    It is a very nice and clean hotel close to the beach and football field with running track (free entrance). I visited the hotel in August 2020 during covid-19 pandemy, I felt safe as they kept the health regulations. Staff was wearing masks and gloves, they served breakfast behind a plexiglass and they ensured safe distancing.

    Great value in Kissamos!

    We had a great stay at Sunny Bay! The view from our room was spectacular as we could see the entire Kissamos bay. Beach access was easy and the pool was clean and refreshing. We loved the breakfast provided and they did an excellent job of serving the food taking cleanliness standards into account during COVID-19. We ordered food and drinks from the bar using our phones and it came out timely and was very delicious. Highly recommend.

    Deserves it’s high rating

    We have just returned from a week’s stay in Kissamos at the Sunny Bay Hotel. We received a very pleasant welcome from the owners, even though we arrived late into the evening. Nothing was too much trouble, helping out with travel adaptors we had forgotten and even a lost passport (thankfully quickly found). The location is perfect for a peaceful break with the beach and shoreline immediately on the doorstep. The food was excellent, the staff friendly and courteous and the room clean and well spec’ed. Only thing missing was a kettle of coffee making but it’s minor point. Thank you to all at Sunny Bay for making our holiday a delight.

    It is a lovely hotel on very quiet Kissamos area with a great food and fantastic host:) All people working there were very nice and friendly, room was clean and tidy with a flat tv and a small fridge. We loved it. If we come back Kissamos we'll go to the Sunny Bay again.

    This was a return trip to Sunny Bay. Lovely family-run hotel - the hotel is very well maintained and provides a pleasant stay. The rooms are basic but clean. We stayed in beach front and sea view rooms.
