Visited Elounda Blu in late July with my parents for my dads 60th. We were on Level 3 & as others have commented,this was steep but for us not a problem. We arrived in the early hours of the morning and they had placed sandwiches in our fridge which was a nice touch and appreciated. Our room was nice,it was... More

After a wonderful holiday in this great hotel and upon writing this review, I am so very surprised with some of the negative reviews I have read on here. My fiancé and I are in our twenties and for us this was very enjoyable indeed and loved every moment! We arrived 4am and both very tired. The gentleman on reception... More

Prior to travelling to Crete I read a previous review where someone had written they didn't do package holidays and I completely concur with this and perhaps I was quite ignorant by not realising this even though I booked through Thomas Cook. But this is a package holiday hotel! To be fair the room we had was one of the... More

We travelled to Elounda Blu on 8th July for a special occasion holiday. Sadly we found that it was one of the worst hotels we had stayed in for a long time. We chose the hotel based on the reviews, but our views and experiences were very different. The location of the hotel is excellent and the views of the... More

We have just arrived back from our honeymoon at Elounda Blue. It exceeded our expectations and is a fantastic hotel. We stayed in a junior suite with private pool and although we could have had 2 weeks in another hotel for the price we paid for 1 here it was worth every penny. We stayed in room 520 which was...

This not a 4* hotel. It falls very short of that. The place, the food and the staff fall very short of what a 4* should be. This a hotel where the staff are very obviously very fed-up with visitors by the time August comes around. I can't believe I am writing this but the British are the new Germans!... More

Just returned from 2 weeks with my boyfriend at Elounda Blu. We had great weather and such a relaxing holiday. Location - around a 25 minute walk to Elounda and 40 to Plaka in opposite directions. Plaka was beautiful and easy to get a boat to Spinalonga which is well worth visiting. Elounda was more touristy, though still very pleasant.... More

On a plus point the staff are exceptionally friendly and helpful. Room was ok - uk 3 star standard but no more Food is average, just what I expected from a half board arrangement. Nothing to write home about, but equally not bad either. Sun- beds. Extremely inadequate supply, there are around 70 by the pool and the same on... More
