We had a wonderful stay in one of the Deluxe Suites. The room was far bigger than I had imagined it would be. It was beautifully designed and spacious. The grounds of the hotel were beautiful, with lemon trees just steps from our patio. The pool area was serene with a gorgeous view of the water. Breakfast each morning was... More

Calm, sophisticated and breathtakingly beautiful. The Staff, with Kyria Anna at the helm, could not do enough, going way and beyond to address every need. This is Greek hospitality at its very best. We had an awesome time. Traditional Architecture with a very sophisticated edge and great attention to detail. Clean and well maintained. Will definitely be back, this Villa... More

Wonderful experience in this luxury and impeccably kept hotel. Staff are very friendly and very professional and always with a big smile from cleaning lady to room service. The lady owner is the best and extremely generous. The food is fantastic and offers traditional Cretan and international cuisine. We found club sandwiches and cafe lattes particularly nice. If you want... More

This sounds quirky, but as soon as we got out of the car, after driving from Chania and stopping at Knossos, we felt peace. Louise greeted us in a warm and welcoming style. She made our daughter instantly feel welcomed, but letting her know that the pool was awaiting her arrival. She had us escorted to our suite and was... More

We spent a lovely week in one of the senior suites. We arrived very late in the evening and a cold buffet with wine had kindly been left in our room. We were greeted by the security guard who took us to our room, but did not speak English so explanation in respect of the room facilities was limited. The... More

We've stayed in some fantastic places around the world and from a site and reception perspective this is one of the good ones. HOWEVER, when management could and should have made decisions in a more guest friendly way when called upon, the proof was not in the pudding, as they say. During the first of our three night stay the... More

Our first stay here 2 years ago was fantastic and our second was even better. We took a villa with a private pool with amazing views across the bay - superb. The villa was excellent and their restaurant superb with an a la carte menu to die for. The chef here is amazing and on a par with most Michelin... More

Our room was one of the nicest we've ever stayed in. We were traveling with our daughter and her rollaway was already in the room when we arrived in the evening. The concierge staff were very helpful and friendly--their restaurant recommendations were perfect (thanks Ria and Louise). The owner made a point of meeting us our first night. And they... More

Just back from a wonderful week in Elounda Gulf Villas. This is a very special place, run in great style by Anna, her family and staff who really care about their customers' experience. Our 2 bedroom villa (shared by 2 couples) was beautifully decorated, very well equipped, and spotlessly maintained. Spent many enjoyable hours reading in the sun, lounging on... More

The villa is very private and has Fantastic Views looking out over the very blue waters of... More
