We wanted to stay in Elounda but were put off by the high prices of hotels - until we found the Selena Hotel. You probably need a car as it's quite a walk from Elounda, and built on a hill but we retired folk managed the walk up from the beach We loved this hotel. It is different - our... More

As a Travel Professional I inspected the property a few weeks ago and I was really impressed with what I have seen! Very clean, very friendly, very nice location, good food and a more than a very correct price/quality! I would recommand a car to explore the area. The hotel is on a hill with lovely views over Spinalonga. Very... More

Very nice hotel with good location. Rooms was very nice and clean. There was two pool areas with very nice view. The staff of the hotel was friendly. There was a lot of free parking place in front of the hotel.

Was there for the weekend as it's only 1 hour drive from Heraklion. Had a lovely weekend. Nice & decent rooms, polite staff. The lady at reception (owner) was very friendly. Hotel was not full, which is normal as it only opened for the season, but didn't mind at all as we went out in the tavernas in Plaka (view... More

Back from Selena Hotel after spending a short weekend there with my girlfriend for the second time in one year. It’s a quite boutique hotel with very nice views to the famous Spinalonga. Rooms were fine (for what we paid!) and staff very kind. It seems that management has changed but one can see the difference compared to last year:... More

Po pierwsze, moim zdaniem wszystkie te opinie "wspaniały", "super" itd musiały być napisane przez zarządzających hotelem. Nie ma innej możliwości. -Zdecydowanie na plus jest okolica. Hotel jest położony przy samej plaży między dwoma miasteczkami (Elounda i Plaka-ok. 15-20 minut piechotą do jednego albo drugiego) wiec jest cisza i spokój. Do tego widok naprawdę super. -Minute drogi od hotelu jest przystanek,... More

We want to present a balanced review of Selena, but do so with some misgivings, given the tenor of the manager's response to any negative comments by other reviewers. It is a beautifully situated hotel between Plaka and Elounda with wonderful views. On arrival we were assisted up the steep hill with our luggage by a friendly young man whose... More

Just at airport ready to return to the UK. Selena Hotel was in a lovely position overlooking Spinalonga. Room was clean with a minimal view of the paid-for sea view - through wire fence around tennis court. Setting of hotel was good for getting around the lovely local area. Food (all buffet style) was very basic and hot food, left... More

I can honestly say that this is the first time a hotel room has made me cry. I went there with my new husband, for the last few nights of our honeymoon, towards the end of September. We thought at 130 odd Euros a night we would be staying in a very nice 3 star hotel. The website pictures made... More
