I stayed in Sun and Sea over the winter and found the location ideal. The hotel sits on the edge of Hersonissos - an easy walk into town. Many businesses are shut in the Winter, but Hersonissos has enough places open for locals that you'll get what you need. The sea front is pretty, with a lovely harbour.
It's quiet at this time of year. You can walk along the coast either way - Stalis is about 30 minutes walk away - again mostly shut down - but I like a ghost beach in the Winter. It's peaceful. You'll see snow on the mountains which hug the bay. The bus stop is outside the hotel!
The hotel is very well priced, clean, with a place to cook a quick meal and a fridge for basics. It's all basic but you'll not want for anything. The aircon works as a heater which was useful in the winter. My elderly parents came for a visit and enjoyed their stay as well.
The owners are charming, friendly and accommodating. An elderly American with walking difficulties was staying at the same time as me, and they really went out of their way to help him out. Sun and Sea has a family feel.
There isn't much else open in the winter, but I never felt like I was "making do". Just my sort of place. I had a lovely stay and made new friends.More
