The service was excellent. The manager of the hotel was able to procure my Sea Jets ferry tickets despite Sea Jets telling me I HAD TO pick them up in Heraklion because I didn't choose the delivery option initially. Sea Jets would not change my order to deliver them instead to Elounda Mare despite my phone calls and emails to... More

This was my 60th birthday treat from my partner- we had the King Minos suite - one more night left before we leave. It has been a quite stunning experience. The staff under the leadership of the General Manager Mr Maranghides are understated, calm, friendly and nothing has been too much trouble. We have loved the peace of our room,... More

Beautiful place, very nice hotel, I recommend to book one of the villas with private pool. It´s heaven. The rooms in the main building are not so amazing (if you consider the price) But villas are amazing. The place is expensive... but worth the price. Great food, very quiet hotel, no teenagers running around. No kids disco or animations.... Simply... More

The Elounda area is a fabulous area to stay in Crete. The bay, mountains and calm waters provide a tranquility atmosphere to the vacation. The Mare hotel which is nestled in a perfect location adds to the atmosphere with its well-kept gardening, private spots, and several accesses to water experiences – sea and pool. The hospitality is superb, food is... More

We have been privileged to visit this hotel regularly for over 20 years. The hotel enjoys one of the most stunning locations in Crete, but the real joy in staying here comes down to exceptional service and organisation: warm yet discreet, efficient yet friendly. This customer-oriented culture starts with the manager and permeates through his whole hotel team. Even after... More

This is a beautiful, low-key hotel. We stayed here for the first time 15 years ago and loved it. Originally for this trip we were going to stay somewhere else- big mistake. Through a series of fortunate snafus we ended up back at Elounda Mare! We couldn't be happier. They have suggested fantastic local restaurants and could not be more... More

I am just completing my fourth day at the 5 STAR EloundaMare Hotel on the Island of Crete in Greece. It has been a most disappointing stay. The service from the housekeepers and front desk personnel and most (more on this later) of the dining room staff has been friendly responsive and helpful. The same can not be said for... More

Beautiful rustic hotel and we loved our own pool room, Immaculate gardens on an unspoilt, quiet beach with clear sea. Felt completely chilled out. No crowds! Boat trip with own tour guide too. Staff so friendly and helpful nothing is too much trouble. A personal touch always. Reception staff for helping us with recommendations to unspoilt tavernas for more authentic... More

We stayed here as a family of four for 4 nights in late May. This time of year suited us because the climate is hot enough for sunbathing but cool enough to make touring comfortable. The hotel is excellent in almost all respects. The layout appears random but is very thoughtful and is a real paradise to live on. We... More
