This hotel is stunning! The grounds, pools and surrounding water all look like something out of a dream. When my friend and I arrived we were greeted outside by a member of the staff (I wish I remembered her name, she was lovely!) who took our names and instructed a porter to take our bags. We were then told that... More

We had been booked into the sister Hotel but this was closing on 9th October so they put us into the Elounda Beach. The setting is lovely and the rooms very pleasant with well equipped bathrooms. There is a housekeeping service twice per day although we did wish they wouldn't come in the evening at a variety of very odd... More

Don't know what hotel some of the other reviewers stayed in but it wasn't this hotel. Most of the rooms in this hotel are outdated and the website pictures only show their 'de-lux' rooms not the actual rooms you stay in. The photographs of the inside must be the originals when it was built back in the seventy's notwithstanding the... More

As with all the reviews on this website we are aware of which of the guests have written them and when someone writes such a derogatory review there is always more behind the story than the immediate obvious dissatisfaction of their stay. We regret that we did not meet this reviewer’s expectations; however there are current photographs of all our... More

Currently coming to the end of our third stay at this amazing hotel. Once you find the Elounda Beach hotel you will never need to look for another hotel again. It's facilities, rooms, location, food and staff are sensational and I can't wait to return. Take my word for it, this place is an absolute gem.

A beautiful resort in a wonderful bay. A perfect place for couples to enjoy a very relaxing, romantic vacation. The hotel is at a similar comfort level to Ikaros Beach, though this area is nicer than Stalis. You get pretty quick from Eliunda to Agos Nicolaos, one of the most beautiful cities in Crete.
