We had a nice family holiday at the Elunda Gulf Villas & Suites. The best aspects of the accommodation include: - The private pools: ideal for families who want to be able to dip in and out, without the need to transport everything to a centralized swimming pool. - The front of house staff: always incredibly friendly, interested and keen...

Just returned from 9 days at this hotel. Booked a spa villa and we were given the villa called Driros. From the moment we arrived the service was superb - all the staff are friendly and efficient. The villa was excellent, located right at the far end of the hotel, high up. Incredible views all around. Well appointed and maintained... More

We booked a two bedroom villa with pool at Elounda Gulf villas & suites for a week long family holiday and were allocated to villa Erofili. The villas and pools have been well designed on the hillside to maximise privacy and provide good views. Clearly Erofili was not one with the best view - the twin bedroom used by our... More

I agree 100% with the other reviews view of the staff at here. They are brilliant and the service was outstanding. I had the Medusa suite and did I think it was 5 star, no I didn't, it was very nice but I didn't think WOW and I so wanted to. I was a lone female traveller and my room... More

We have stayed in Elounda Gulf Villas for a few days.

My husband and I spent five glorious nights in this hotel and our ONLY regret is we didn't have another week o spend. From the moment we landed, the staff was nothing but helpful, kind and welcoming. For starters, we landed in Athens after a 9.5 hour flight. Normally I'm a very organized planner but, as we just got married,... More

From the second we arrived to the moment the taxi pulled away we were treated like royalty. By far one of the best places my husband and I have ever stayed at. The rooms were beautifully decorated, spacious, and clean. The resort has amazing food with a very creative chef. We stayed in the Daedalus Villa which words cannot explain... More
