Travellers considering Crete should consider that Heraklion airport is not of the standard usually experienced in Europe, with frequent long queues, a two-stage check in process where bags have to be tagged first and then carried to the x-Ray machine for scanning. Domes of Elounda is an all villa or suite hotel between Elounda and Plaka, overlooking the former leper... More

Crete is the cradle of European civilisation, the Domes is the embodiment of holiday relaxation. There are so many things to love about Domes. The location is stunning, it's a short transfer from Heraklion, the climate is beautiful, all of which added up to an outstanding holiday for us. I would highlight a few things which made the holiday particularly... More

My wife and I stayed at the Domes and had a really relaxing stay. The service was fantastic from the sparkling wine on arrival to the complimentary bottle of olive oil on departure. The suites are very spacious for two people with a great balcony and hot tub. The breakfasts were superb and there is a fish restaurant and bar... More

We have just returned from our 2nd stay (in 2 years) at the Domes of Elounda and once again it exceeded all of our expectations! This resort features it all and our family (2 kids - 2 and 5) enjoyed every moment. Service - The thing that sets this hotel apart from many others is the service, hospitality and great... More

Me and my family stayed at one of the domes of elounda luxury villas. We stayed from the 5th of July to the 12th 2015, we all had a amazing time and would like to thank all of the staff for being so friendly and welcoming to us!! When we arrived (well past midnight-late flight) we were presented with two... More

Booking a holiday these days is not that difficult when we all have the opportunity to read through the reviews. I'm not going to bore you with the usual in's and out's of day to day life in paradise.....you can read through the older posts for that ;-) As I feel that it's important to feed back the strengths of...

We have just returned from 10 days at Domes of Elounda, staying in a large two bedroom villa (Aptera) at the very top of the "older"" side of the resort with a private pool. From the moment of our arrival (at 1am, having managed to get lost on our way from Heraklion Airport - when you know the way it's... More

In a sense, there is more than one hotel at Domes. On the front of the hill near the main reception there seemed to be smaller apartments and over the hill there were the larger villas and apartments. In the whole week we never walked between the two but always used the golf carts, as we stayed in a 2... More

while facilities are excellent, the views are breathtaking and the food is great, what made all those in one perfect mix was the outstanding service! the staff is very professional, friendly and warm. This is a pace to come back to!

This was the first time we have dared stay half-board in a hotel since my daughter was diagnosed with Coeliac disease. The Manager, George, reassured me about the meals via email prior to our holiday, and made sure that he came to find us and introduce us to the chef on our arrival.The staff were among the most friendly and...
