Spent 1 week in June at Elounda Beach in a one bedroom suite. Overall it was a very destination for families (we traveled with 2 boys). Pros: Amazing daily breakfast, nice beach service and set up with loungers and towel service/bar food with fun water activities on a nice private beach. Room was a nice size and well appointed.

We chose a week at the Elounda Beach to celebrate our wedding anniversary and from the moment we arrived it was like a second honeymoon. As soon as we came through the front gate the elegance and peace of the resort struck us. The staff at reception were appropriately attentive and made us feel very welcome. Our suite was beautifully... More

Something for everyone with well-lined pockets here; rooms in hotel like buildings, rooms alongside the sea. Some have their own decks, others infinity pools. Beaches of various sizes, plenty of bars, and restaurants dot the site, with various cuisines - Greek, Italian, Oriental. There are various facilities for children. The only oddity was the dodgy wifi which didn't work well... More

Over 37 years we have gradually upgraded from other hotels in Crete and have consistently stayed at the Beach Hotel since 1998 because it is just exceptional, and keeps getting better. The key is that the staff are very happy in their work and this gives a very happy atmosphere. One needs to choose one's room carefully depending on what... More

I had over thirty years to visit this hotel. I could not believe the improvements. More modern without loosing the character that made it one of the best hotels not only in Greece but worldwide also. I enjoyed thoroughly every minute of my visit and i recomend it with open heart to all.

There is nothing in the world like the Elounda Beach Hotel in Crete. Start with a visit to Knossos and you will appreciate the stunning architecture: the hotel is a modern day luxurious recreation of the ancient city of Knossos. Every detail is perfect, and worthy of poetry. From the trees and plants to the stones used to pave the... More
