We arrived mid Sept 2014 and there was a mix up with the rooms, the next day we were given a room with a view as booked via Thomas Cook. It was room 23 further up the hill. Lovely room with a fantastic view with a very relaxed atmosphere in the hotel. Food was excellent and we would particularly like... More

It's home from home, the Elounda Residence, and we love it. Warm welcome as always from Mr Yiannis, Roula, Morning Maria, Evening Maria, Dmitris, and all the staff, including our lovely cleaning ladies. We were delighted with our high apartment - with that glorious view - and really appreciated the kettle and the toastie-machine. From relaxing days - heavenly swimming... More

My partner and I recently stayed for ten nights here and what a nightmare. We arrived at 3am after a 2 and a half hour transfer, to be dumped on a street corner to wait for a mini bus. We were driven to the main hotel only to be advised there was a fault in our room and they had... More

Thank you for your recent comments and we are sorry that on this occasion we did not meet your expectations. We would, however like to respond to a few of the points you raised: The resort transfer time is the responsibility of the Tour Operator and reflected by their schedule but we are happy to forward your comments to them....

Arrived late (after 1 a.m.) and given a snack which was welcome. In the morning we discovered that our room, number 38, was a bit small, dark and the sea view was missing (obscured by shrubs). Reception did their best ( the hotel was full) and after two days we moved up the hill to room 45 which was exactly... More

Where to start, we were looking for an October break in the sun for my wife’s birthday and came across what looked like a great deal at the Elounda Residence on the island of Crete and after reading many varying reviews we booked it !!. WOW I think sums it up, from arrival to leaving we had the most fantastic... More

Before staying at this hotel I did check out some of the reviews already on Tripadvisor, and although I do take what I read on here with a pinch of salt there were some very mixed views. After staying here for a week (17th - 24th October 2014) I really cannot relate at all to the very bad reviews. Most... More

If you wish to have a relaxing holiday I suggest you sit by the lovely pool and take in the breathtaking views. If you prefer to go and investigate the local area,... More

We spent a week here on full board in apartment 84 from 13th to 20th October. We booked through "On the Beach". We were looking for a last dose of sunshine before the 6 month winter we suffer in the UK. We had never been to Crete before so had no idea what to expect. Before leaving and after booking... More
