The short story about the Elounda Mare is a beautiful hotel with an excellent restaurant. The hotel area is laid out is a seemingly random fashion but in fact was done by a world class designer that makes it into a very interesting area to wander about. The meal at the restaurant was excellent. Like pretty much everywhere in Crete,... More

I was at Elounda Mare in August 2014 for ten days. I really liked the hotel: the staff — reception, bar, beach, housekeeping — is very nice, helpful and goes out of their way to make your stay pleasant. The rooms are very clean and high standard. The food is good, the beach and pool are clean. Everything was great.... More

We have just returned from our holiday at the Elounda Mare .... we had a good time but I have to be honest the food just did not cut it as 5*. Have stayed at many 5* hotels and food was top notch. The food was very average indeed. We stayed for 10 nights and as we were on a... More

After two years without a holiday, we were SO looking forward to our week at Elounda Mare, and it didn't disappoint. We stayed in a superior one bedroom suite with sea view (room 501) and the room was incredible. We were in the main building almost at the top, and had two huge balconies and incredible views. The bathroom was... More

We must have come to Elounda Mare for the first time almost 20 years ago, and have been back to different hotels in Elounda several times since. Our latest visit was great, but with a few reservations. You have to expect rather more relaxed service and style from Greek five-star hotels than you might find in, say, France or Italy,... More

Dear T. Family, Thank you very much for this lovely review, quite to the point in most aspects. Please allow us some remarks, feeling that some points can be misleading. Decor and updating: The style of Elounda Mare remains unchanged over the years, in spite of the constant renovations and updates, both in rooms and public areas. A feeling of... More

This was our 4th stay at the Mare, and the unstinting work of all the staff to ensure that the excellent standards are not just maintained, but improved if that is possible, was striking. The general manager, Harry Maranghidis, is the perfect host. The staff, many of whom have been serving guests at the hotel for 20 years or more... More
