Recently returned from a heavenly 10 days at The Elounda Bay Palace! The hotel is in the most beautiful setting and the views from the restaurant where you have breakfast and dinner were just dreamy. The food was superb, everything you would expect, fresh fruits, freshly cooked omlettes, eggs, pastries etc and diner was fantastic! Best buffet food I've had... More

Beautiful hotel with local, fabulous, staff. Great and varied food. Book the best room that you can afford...we had a standard twin with side sea view, which was excellent and adequate....but the rooms with private pools look amazing! Just a slight hiccup with our taxi, as we booked out. Poor communication from the reception staff.

Just returned from one glorious week at this very special hotel. The setting is divine in its own small pretty bay with a backdrop of mountains in the distance. Private beach kept very clean by the beach staff team. Comfortable sunbeds and parasols for shade provided with clean beach towels everyday. You can sit anywhere in the gardens, in front... More

Having spent 7 nights nights at the Elounda bay palace ( in 2 different rooms), I can honestly say it is very hard to find a fault with this beautiful place which is on a large complex. We stayed in a bungalow for the first two nights then a superior suite with private (this means shared pool). Both rooms were... More

I found it hard to give an overall rating for this hotel. I guess I can only compare it to other hotels that we have stayed in and while I'm sure that some of the rooms are spectacular (you do have to pay a lot to get one of them). On this trip we weren't planning on spending a lot... More

Had 10 days her. Room was very good but we thought the star rating should have been 4 and not 5. Unfortunately there were many Russian families and the children took over the pool. Having walked to look at the sister hotel Elounda Beach, we would recommend this one for adults wanting a quieter time. The food and wine in... More
