Very disappointing Hotel - like a tired Butlins 50Posted Sep 23, 2014
Cons: See above - the hotel needs total overhaul and staff need to be incentivised - some seem to be on duty 24hrs a day and thus tired and weary
Location: The hotel is about a mile walk to the town - if weather is bad little to occupy a guest and public rooms uncomfortable,tired and need updating totall
Shortage of staff - buffet v disappointing - pool cold and no hand rails with dangerous exposed areas surrounding - food around the pool dreadful ,cold and lack of choice - room adequate but v limited accessories - décor dull,dark and tired- furnishing need updating - generally not a place to return to and not a good example for this group of hotels.No free wifi,pool bar closes at 4.0pm and pool at 5.0pm,totally unacceptable - the whole experience will not be repeated for us

Steiniger Zugang zum Wasser, Hotel und Pools gutPosted Aug 1, 2014 on Hotels
Der Anteil an russischen Touristen ist sehr hoch Mitte Juli. Viele Touristen haben sich geweigert, sich "ordentlich" zum Essen anzuziehen und das schmälerte das Ambiente. Das Hotelgelände ist in einem guten Zustand; außerhalb - der Wasserzugang (das ist kein Strand) ist teilweise gefährlich und schlecht bis gar nicht renoviert. Man muss sich Wasserschuhe einpacken. Elounda selbst ist 3-4 km vom Hotel entfernt. Man braucht einen Mietwagen, wenn man etwas von der Umgebung sehen möchte. Die Hotelausstattung ist in Ordnung, die Zimmer sind sauber und das Personal ist sehr freundlich. Am Pool zu liegen war herrlich. Der Kinderspielplatz ist in einem schlechten Zustand, viele Sachen sehr veraltet und er liegt mitten in der Sonne. Die Animation gab Aqua Gym und manchmal Yoga; am Nachmittag fand auch mal Wasserball statt.

Quiet hotel at this time of year, good facilitiesPosted Jun 2, 2014
Pros: Quiet and comfortable - we had the pool to ourselves
Cons: more variety to the meals
Location: Spinalonga island Birthplace of Zeus and Knossos all within easy reach
Very helpful staff and happy to sort trips and taxis, dining room good range of local and international food but this did not vary much from day to day. We choose not to go all inclusive but it was easy to order a meal in the evening if needed and this was good value for money. Within walking distance of the village with some great restaurants and good fish dishes served.

Peaceful and relaxing hotelPosted Sep 29, 2013 on Hotels
We really enjoyed our stay at the Elounda Aqua Sol. Our upstairs bungalow (!) room had a great sea view. The rooms are surrounded by gardens: very peaceful and pretty.The hotel has two beautiful swimming pools with plenty of umbrellas and sunbeds. There is also a small man-made beach a short distance away with an enclosed pool as well as access to deeper water for snorkelling, which we greatly enjoyed. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Food was generally good, with great salads, breakfasts and desserts, but the hot main courses weren't very exciting. The dining room was a bit cramped, but the outside dining area had a fantastic view. Good value and a great holiday!

CLEAN AND COMFORTABLEPosted Jul 11, 2013 on Hotels
Booked to stay here for a few days (with friends who live on Crete) some time in advance at "no cancellation" rates, so got a good deal. What you would expect from this type of accommodation - clean and modern but not luxurious. Most rooms in 2 storey blocks and we ended up with a ground floor room with no views despite "mountain views" being shown on the booking, but hey. Only real drawback was its location - about a 20-30 mins walk out of Elounda centre along a narrow road for some of the way, some of which is dark on the way back late evening, but there are regular taxis going along to and from the 5 star hotel opposite. Elounda is a good base for the Eastern end of Crete, and has a good choice of tavernas etc..Booked B&B and breakfast was OK too, pretty standard fayre of hot and cold choices. Whole place was not very busy despite being early July, but perhaps symptomatic of current economic problems with fewer travellers.

Oppholdet var greit nok, hotellet var stort og flott, men det passer nok best for familier med barn. For å bo her må du disponere bil. Vi bodde her for å besøke Spinalonga og de nærliggende byer, og det var interessant nok.
