We have just returned from a week's stay at this hotel, our second visit, and are still charmed by it. The location is lovely, the layout and architecture of the hotel make you feel you are in a Cretan village. The service is wonderful, the staff very helpful. The food in the restaurants, The Old Mill and Yacht Club is... More

We recently returned from a 2 week vacation at Elounda Mare, which was our 8th visit to this most wonderful hotel. Its breathtaking setting and the excellent service we once again received from all the staff every day of our stay continue to be absolutely 5 star. It really is a taste of heaven on earth!

Just back from a Crete after spending a week with my wife and two daughters. We had a relaxing and rejuvenating time in this hotel, It is nicely thought out, and clearly well managed. All the facilities (with the exception of the wee Gym that needs some TLC) met out expectations. The service is very friendly & efficient. Our rooms... More

I went on a 5 island 15 day vacation and I can say the last was the best. The service was amazing. The view and food was beyond my expectations. I would return again over and over. I can not say the same for some of the resorts. Thank you to the staff.

Not quite sure how to write this review as I really loved the hotel but there were little niggles that could have made it so much better. We were upgraded to a room with its own pool, which was a lovely treat after a very warm welcome. The location is stunning and views breathtaking. The rooms are nice, clean and... More

We had four couples share two, two suite rooms at the top of the hill, looking out to Santorini Island on the horizon. They were cool and comfortable, each pair with a salt water pool 20x25 to swim or cool off. The beach and rocks had places to dip into the Mediterranean as well as drink services/towels. The dining was... More

Dear Mr. and Mrs. L, Thank you very much indeed for choosing our hotel as well as for your very good comments about our hotel and staff. We are very sorry that you were disturbed by works early in the morning. One can always say that it is a sign of bad management to have disturbing works in early June... More

We stayed at the Elounda Mare in May 2014. We initially came for 4 days and quickly decided to extend by another 3. We loved the place, scenery, service, beach, food, and bar that much. It's a place where you relax, enjoy the sun and sea. The service is one of the best I have received in any hotel. The... More
