We spend a wonderful week at Elounda Bay Palace last September. The staff were fantastic and couldn't do enough for you. The food was superb. We went on a couple of day trips and frequently walked down to the village. We will definitely be going back!

Arrived at the hotel late on the 12th May, it was not until the 15th when the hotel had any atmosphere when more guests arrived. The staff are excellent, the hotel was clean and our room was comfortable. The buffet food was of good quality and well presented although sometimes difficult to understand the layout. Never found the soup at... More

We are a family who try not to return to the same place as there is so much world to see - but the Elounda Beach is one of our very few exceptions.... so much so we are going back for the third consecutive year this summer. The combination of a beautiful setting with its own little lovely beaches, really... More

I have stayed at the Elounda Bay Hotel 3 times in a Superior sea view room. I just can't help returning to this hotel! The last two visits were as honoured guests.

We had a seven night stay at the Elounda Bay Palace Hotel at the beginning of October 2014. We love Crete but this was our first time on this part of the island and in this hotel. We were not disappointed and indeed this was possibly our best ever experience. We didn't find the hotel dated at all, and nor... More
