My wife and I stayed at the AEV last September (2014) and I forgot to make a contribution, so here it is, looking back some 7 months later. Overall, impressed with some minor comments which I hope readers will acept are me being a little picky but trying to be informative. The AEV is well spread out on a slope... More

We have recently come back from a week stay at Elounda Village and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. The staff were extremely hard working and attentive, the champagne on arrival and room upgrade were a surprise and we really appreciated it. Elounda Village went out of their way to make sure our stay was amazing. There was a great variety... More

This hotel is gorgeous. The view from the poolside is absolutely stunning and even in August, we always found a sunbed. The staff are friendly and polite and always stopped to say hello as you walked around the hotel grounds. We took a trip to Spinalonga which was well worth it. Don't book the trip through your travel company, just... More

My husband and I stayed here for our Honeymoon and we had a great stay but I am not sure it is up to the standard it should be. The buffet in the evening is nothing to get excited about and as we were all inclusive (although not a lot is included in the package here) we were pretty disappointed.... More

So this year was the 5 year in a row that we have visited Aquila Elounda Village Hotel. It is quite simply perfect. The rooms/bungalows are lovely, spacious and set on a hill side in botanical gardens going down to a private beach. The hotel has a lovely spa, pools and a scuba dive school that is outstanding. The food... More

Ok so let's be clear this is a resort, so it is in no way at walkable distance from any town centre and it is certainly not Santorini. You need a car, Crete is a large island. Also as long as you are taking this as a base point and not a place where you're going to spend ALL your... More

Went here in May for a week with partner - a little late in writing my review. We had a lovely time and fell in love with Elounda, its a small village and the people were so friendly and welcoming. The hotel was lovely and clean and grounds were spacious. We spent most days in Elounda which was about a... More

We stayed here in July this year. I'll start with the good stuff, sorry thing. The room itself was nice with good views. That's where it ends. The rest of the experience is a bad one! Its all inclusive buffet restaurant is no better than a 3 star hotel. Then there are other restaurants you can go to, but you... More

It has taken me a long time to write this review having stayed here in September. We booked this as a last minute holiday for a much needed break. There is still very little positive I can say about this hotel. It lacks any kind of atmosphere in my opinion. The "beach area" was a little jetty with a small... More
