  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

We chose to stay at Elounda to celebrate our mother's 80th birthday. The rooms were wonderful. We had 4 interconnecting rooms with balconies and really good facilities. We chose a half board package which allowed us to take breakfast and dinner on site. The food was good and a reasonable choice was available in all of the restaurants. It became clear that many of the guests were regulars and returned to Elounda each year to enjoy the facilities. I can fully understand why. The beaches are clean and the hotel offers an excellent option for family holidays.

    Rather run down hotel, restaurant service is organized chaos. Was very surprised it was part of the Leading Hotels of the World with a 5 star rating. If you are used to luxury, don’t go there.

    Our best hotel in Greece

    This hotel was absolutely excellent. I was a little taken back that the taxi ride was €110 one way. Once we got to the hotel it was worth every euro. We had a beautiful room facing the ocean everything about the room was Great Especially the view facing the ocean. The only thing better than the room was the food offerings. My wife is vegan and they made sure every meal she had all the large selection and she couldn’t believe the variety involved. Each night was a different celebration so there was no repetition in the dinner or the breakfast. This beach is the best beach we’ve experienced in our month-long stay in Greece. Powder sand beach, low winds , Plenty of area to find shade. The beach chairs were great and the water was crystal clear very low waves. We cried when we had to leave this hotel the experience was so good. If you are looking for the perfect hotel on Crete this is the location and the hotel you could not do better if you had to.
