It's early January in Scotland - wild, wet and windy weather - and just the right time to plan our next visit to Elounda Residence - well, it *is* nearly three months since we were there. It'll be the 5th time in 3 years, because we know that we'll receive a very warm welcome, great service, helpful staff, glorious food... More

We stayed in October in a villa which was fantastic. We also opted for all inclusive which was a big mistake. The food was not good. The kids, 11 and 14, didn't eat a thing and my wife hardly touched anything too. Everything had the same smell and taste and was certainly not remotely near 4 star. We ate out... More

First of all we want to make clear that this was the only time in our hotel business that a guest blackmaled us. The guests made the booking through our facebook page and it was given to them a special offer for a Villa with All Inclusive basis. They were never ever made a complaint either to the Maitre D'Hotel... More

Stayed in August and absolutely adored this hotel, we will be going back July 2014. You could not be made to feel more welcome by hotel staff, from the minute you are picked up by their little minibus to the parting hugs. The hotel is clean and clearly well kept. Food is AWESOME, home cooked, something for all. I recommend... More

We first visited the Elounda Residence in 2010, and then skipped it for a couple of years to try other places (only to try different places in Elounda - we very much enjoyed our first stay). We returned for the first couple of weeks of July this year and yet again had an absolutely lovely time. We were made to... More

This is not an ultra modern boutique style hotel. It is a traditional Cretan hotel which stretches up a precipitous hillside and overlooks the stunning bay of Elounde. It offers good value for money. The rooms and apartments vary in quality. Some are rather tired, others are very comfortable. Our two bedroomed villa with plunge pool was excellent! All are... More

I can only read add to the very recent holidaymakers comments details. Travelled for the first week of October. Had an absolutely fantastic time, attended a German wedding hosted at the Elounda Residence .This was beyond dreams, a cross between Mama Mia and My Big Fat Greek Wedding. The Staff worked their socks off and nothing was too much trouble... More

Elounda Residence Elounda Crete We travelled as a couple and stayed in Elounda Residence for 2 weeks, 12-26th October 2013. We chose Crete for mid to late October as we wanted to extend our summer into an autumn holiday with warm seas for swimming, exploring the mountainous countryside and villages and sight seeing (the ancient Minoan settlements) in sunny weather...

Be aware that the quickest walk into town is not via the front entrance (which leads you down onto a fairly busy road) but from the back of the hotel, where a 10-15 minute walk takes you straight to the harbour. The views from the rooms and restaurants are superb, but the staff are the biggest asset. We went at... More

When we arrived we were told by the transfer bus driver to "wait here, Mr George will come and get you to take you up to the hotel".
