My husband and I stayed at the Elounda Blu for one week all inclusive in September 2014 for our honeymoon. We arrived late at night and had a long coach journey, not arriving to our hotel until after 12:30am but it was so worth it when we arrived! A member of staff from Elounda Blu was waiting outside to greet... More

We had an All Inclusive holiday at the Elounda Blu. The main criticism is the access which is up a steep incline. While this was no problem for us I could see problems for the less active. There is a golf buggy service from the foyer to the higher situated rooms. The desk staff were very helpful and it was... More

The staff could not do enough for us. They were faultless in their friendliness and helpfulness. This is an amazing spot with views to die for! Area great if you love history and stunning scenery. The beach was well organised and clean and the sea amazing to swim in. We've had one of the best holidays ever here!

Location good, not to worry about the hike up the hill, you need it after relaxing all day! All the staff were lovely, very helpful and smiling al the time. The only minor exception to this would be that in the bar if you were all inclusive you did tend to get left until last before being served. The food... More

Just come back from a great time at Elounda Blu, an 20 minute walk from the resort along a pleasant coastal path. This hotel is lovely – set on a hillside overlooking the sea & the islands including Spinalonga. As the hotel is set on a hill it is a bit of a hike to get the reception of the... More

Just back from Elounda Blu Hotel. It was brilliant. Big thanks to Vicky (a lovely girl) on reception. She helped us to locate some of the sights and tavernas. Absolutely nothing was too much trouble for her. Also the staff in the restaurant (Valia, Kostas and Anastasia really looked after us) as did everyone. The Greek people have a lot... More

This is a really lovely hotel, the pool, the restaurant are all excellent. The staff are very polite and friendly. The food served here is very good quality and very nice. The views from the hotel are beautiful and I would most definitely recommend a stay here. My only moan would have to be our room, which was 402, we... More

The staff at Elounda Blu are fantastic and really make the hotel what it is, especially Vicky and Vivie on reception, and Kostas in the dining room. We stayed in one of the new suites, which was lovely. Very modern and well kept, although a bit disappointing as we didn't get any sun whatsoever on our outside area, meaning our... More
