This was my first holiday with my girlfriend and Elounda is a beautiful place to visit. The town is 15 min walk (downhill) and is full of friendly places to eat with one exceptional restaurant being the Lotus Eaters (everyone should have at least one meal here but book as it’s hard to get a table as the service is...

Just returned from a weeks all inclusive at the Elounda residence. We stayed there as we had gone to celebrate a friends wedding. Most of the wedding party stayed here too and were equally dissapointed. The hotel is rated as 4 star. I could not dissagree more. The rooms are very basic, small and our room (113) had a socket...

Well, where do I start? When we arrived at this hotel we were expecting a 4 star hotel by European standards. I probably wouldn't even give this hotel 2 stars. The rooms are the thing that really let the hotel down and they need to be upgraded asap. We had to change our room upon arrival because the air con... More

This is a delightful hotel situated just outside Elounda in an elevated position with stunning views of Spinalonga and the beautiful Bay of Mirabello. My partner and I have been visiting Crete for 8 years and were very fortunate to have stayed here for 5 nights on a Half Board basis in May this year. We loved it so much... More

Just back from 11 nights at the Elounda Residence. Had a great holiday, we liked the hotel but like other reviews feel it is more a 3 star than 4. The room we had was in the newest block at the top of the hill and was fine , it had amazing views over Elounda. However we were aware that... More

Me my husband and two teenage sons arrived at hotel in private taxi as it will drive up steep windey road to hotel entrance unlike coach which drops you off on main road at the bottom and the hotel mini bus collects you.

We returned from the Elounda Residence Hotel last Friday, feeling refreshed, invigorated and delighted (with two happy kids too). Like other reviewers of this hotel, I would agree that this hotel is not four star, but closer to a three due to the accommodation. This statement may suggest that the rooms were sub standard, which is not the case. They... More
