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

Just returned from 2 weeks of bliss at the EBP. This hotel is in the most stunningly beautiful bayside location.

Great architecture, quiet atmosphere, excellent service, friendly and helpful staff! The bungalows are a perfect option for families with toddlers - you are on the ground, no need to carry all the toys, buggies and other heavy stuff, you have a great view over the beautiful garden. The small patio is great for just crashing after the day at the... More

Fabulous location and great views. Rooms were spotless and generous in size but our mountain view room was in need of an update. Most of the staff were very attentive. The buffet breakfast was excellent and there was a reasonable choice in the evenings.
