A straight forward but a long transfer on a Thompson coach to Elounda, dropping people off at a few hotels on the way. Transfer took about 1hr 45. Past Malia that scenery is breathtaking. We arrived at the hotel, and received a wonderful reception including some sparkling wine. The reception and lobby bar is impressive. The hotel seems to be... More

I'm a tad late writing this review as we returned three weeks ago! We arrived fairly late on a Tuesday evening and the hotel staff kindly took our bags to our room. We paid for a sea view upgrade upon booking which my parter was really looking forward to. After some food we went to our rooms, and our sea... More

My boyfriend and I visited elounda for the first time and we were not disappointed and agreed it was our best holiday together. Arrival: we were greeted with champagne and a welcome talk, our suitcases were taken to our bungalow. All staff were welcoming and helpful. Room: our room was immaculate. We chose a detached bungalow with sea view which... More

Storms and freak winds did nothing to affect our holiday in April at the start of the season. The staff rallied and we developed a 'Dunkirk' spirit as we waited for the storm to clear. Easter Sunday saw a traditional roast and Greek celebration including beautiful sunshine!! James led the entertainment. Van Gelis and Michalis kept the drinks flowing. We... More

We were greeted by a lovely customer relations lady, offered a glass of champagne and provided with some key information about the hotel. The room we were taken to was lovely, very clean and even though we hadn't booked a sea view this... More

this hotel provided a very nice relaxing stay but it is by no means a 5* hotel. It is clutching at straws to attain this description and after a few days it begins to feel like a 4* at best (3* standard in England). Problems: Wifi? Yes there is wifi, does it work in the room, no, does it work... More
