Great place to stay in the Elounda corridor. Nice isolated location with a great little beach and chairs on the grass right on the water's edge. Very peaceful and relaxing time. Fantastic al fresco lunch restaurant, where most folks head around noon like clockwork. Lovely rooms and not quite as pricey as it's next of kin two properties down (The... More

While my husband and I had a pleasant stay at Elounda Mare, and we loved the spa at their neighboring property, if you are a frequent American traveler like we are, I frankly would stay somewhere else. The decor at the hotel is overwhelmingly Greek "country" -- classical Cretan fabrics, wooden beams (i.e, very U.S. 1970's or National Park-ish decor).... More

Thank you for reviewing our hotel, for your good comments and your remarks. Although you had a pleasant stay, we are sorry that it was not 100% satisfactory. To clarify a few points: The upgrade to a bungalow with private pool is almost always appreciated. Your booking did not mention that a separate living room was necessary; otherwise we would... More

This was our third return to one of the most magical places in the Mediterranean Sea. The Elounda Mare hotel is spectacular and extremely comfortable, with well-kept grounds, beautiful lantana plants and pomegranate trees, and our own private pool attached to our suite was romantic and relaxing. Of course the Old Mill restaurant was a delicious dining experience and the... More

Great weeks stay, staff excellent, warm welcome and very good service. Looked at a number of other hotels on the coast and felt we had picked the best of those in the area, smaller and quieter . Was a little surprised at the restaurant prices, eye watering rates in crete that the Burj al Arab would would be happy to... More

We stayed as a couple, the lovely rustic courtyard entrance has a fabulous view of the sea as you enter through the glass door entrance, the welcome glass of champagne was lovely, reception staff were always very helpful, spoke excellent English and even helped with our wifi problems. The hotel as previous reviews say is really first class, everywhere is... More

Location: on quiet road, discrete entrance, set in green well tended grounds, cleverly landscaped with pretty paved pathways and romantically lit arches, running down to a small quaint private chapel sat in a square with a few boutiques and onwards down to a small beach, gently sloping into the sea to one side of the hotel. To the other side... More

This was our second visit to this haven on Crete, which is testament alone to it's glory. Set in the magnificence of the Elounda Peninsula the hotel offers peace and tranquility second to none. There is everything that the more 'mature' traveller might desire in terms of privacy and choice of type of stay. Private Villas with their own pools... More

It was just one night in this hotel but I can affirm that staff is very well experienced & friendly, the rooms are spacious and well equiped. There is every thing to have unforgettable rest at the sea.

There is lots to like about this hotel but it will not be everyones choice. If you are looking for a peaceful and quiet traditional summer holiday by the seaside then this will be hard to beat. However, if you prefer the full service American Resort style hotels or the opulance and service of the Far East then you may... More
