The hotel and bungalows are located on a beautiful slant going all the way down to the ocean. The bungalows with ocean views have salt water infinity-pools as well, which is nice if you just want a quick dip in the morning before showering. The beach is beautiful and the small restaurant located in the cliffs right above the beach... More

We should have wrote this review along time ago, this hotel is amazing! My husband and I chose to get married at the Aquila Elounda on Friday 2nd August 2013, after initially being apprehensive as we had not stayed in Elounda before. The hotel completely put us at ease and blew all our worries away. On our first day we... More

TA somehow ranks this hotel as #5 in Elounda with a "Certificate of Excellence 2013", both are complete nonsense. As you approach this property from the road you quickly realize this is not the polished five star resort you imagined. No, its more like a dilapidated three star. Sadly it gets worse. This review notes my experience as poor and... More

We spent a week in September at this hotel and as per the title found the area very windy most of the week. We had booked a room with a shared pool, Don't bother. The hotel faces North/East therefore most rooms loose the sun in the morning for the rest of the day. We moved rooms twice from I think... More

We arrived at the hotel in late evening after a rather long and tiring journey on a Thomson transfer coach. We had booked a superior room but during our welcome briefing at reception we were told that we had been upgraded to a suite. We were taken to our very pleasant and spacious accommodation on the top floor of the... More

We too have just returned from an excellent stay at this hotel. The hotel is very good, with excellent infinity pool and private beach. The staff were attentive, our room (452) clean and roomy with walk in shower/bath. We had a superb sea view as well! Although most room are advertised at bungalows, they are actually on two floors so... More

This hotel is superb if you want peace, quiet, and sensational views. We had a sea view room and it was fantastic, the hotel is hilly so it is not ideal for people with mobility issues. The food was exceptional in comparison to what you get elsewhere. The staff are attentive and really try to ensure that you get what... More

Just returned from a fabulous week at the Aquila Elounda Village, and can't praise the hotel enough. All the staff were really lovely, the hotel was excellent, and the food was delicious. We loved the coastal walk to Plaka, which was the only way to stop the weight piling on after the hotels fabulous food. A lovely hotel in a... More

We first visited early May this year and were so impressed with the hotel overall have recently returned from our second AI stay. Sometimes it's a mistake to re-visit but we didn't find this the case. We were given a fantastic room - 470 - top level with no neighbours, the most beautiful view over the bay from the balcony...

Got to agree with review by Tina T. I stayed at the Aquila between 3rd and 10th of October. When we arrived the winds were very strong for the first 3 days, but we enjoyed getting to know the hotel on the first day, our room 660 was a sea-view bungalow (have stayed in 4* sea-view rooms which were much...
