Fab hotel and staff, especially in the sail bar and main restaurant. No one could do more for you, that seemed to be the motto. Would definitely go back and in fact we kept meeting other guests who had done just that. We had( I admit) a beautiful room overlooking the sea but that was one key element that made... More

Elounda Bay Palace is located in Crete, Elounda, one of the most beautiful places on crete. We stayed in a superior room with seaview and patio (to share with 2 other rooms). Food was great ( breakfast, dinner buffet, lunch can be ordered directly at the beach). You can be a 10 star hotel with the best food and everything... More

This was a lovely stay and a lovely resort, It was made special due to a few things, some of the staff were fantastic, a lady in the restaurant called chrisula was like a dynamo and she had a great memory for detail.

Our vacation was easy, relaxing and wonderful thanks to the amazing staff of the Elounda Bay Palace. Particularly Eleni at the buffet who made sure we had gluten... More

We spent 10 days in this hotel and had a fantastic time. Our sea view room was lovely with a small but adequate balcony, very comfortable bed and good bathroom. The room was serviced twice a day with fresh towels (bath and beach) and more than ample toiletries. The AC was a bit noisy. The beach area was perfect: a... More

Perfect location with two private beaches and a nice bar/restaurant in between. The hotel was located next to Elounda beach hotel which was the sister hotel. The Bay Palace Hotel was rather smaller than the other one which looked prettier. However, it would make more sense to reserve this hotel for adults only, because there're lots of small children making... More
