We normally choose a self catering apartment in Greece to enable us to enjoy both the evening and lunchtime taverna experience. This very pleasant small hotel offers bed & breakfast for less than the price of many studios and is so well positioned that we spent 2 weeks there in September/October 2013 returning for the same fortnight in 2014.

We have visited Elounda on a number of occasions but haven't been for a few years, so decided to return in 2015. We "booked" a double side sea view room through the hotel's own website for two weeks in late June. Having completed the online reservation requirements including full credit card details I was amazed that their was no immediate... More

Stayed here in August 2014 for one week, we were given a lovely front facing room and the views were superb. The hotel was clean throughout and the food was good. Limited space around the pool area and the small beach area. Staff friendly and helpful.

First time in Crete and we had a fabulous trip. It started badly as the transfer time from the airport is horrific. If I was to return to Elounda I would get a taxi from the airport. Hotel is spotless, great breakfast and friendly, helpful staff. Pool is great with amazing views. Pool bar is great as well. I'd highly... More

We decided to venture to try somewhere different in Crete and we decided on Elounda as it had some good write-ups. Well what a perfect, Greek holiday destination. If you are looking for a charming, greek village with excellent restaurants and beaches to relax on and great people then this is the place. We stayed at the Akti Elous and... More

Stayed for one week in early October. Hotel very good value. We booked direct with the hotel and were upgraded from a garden view to a sea view room, and the air-con and safe were included. Room more than big enough and standard of cleaning was high. Bathroom fine but a little tired. Breakfast could have done with more variation... More

We stayed here for 7 nights and it was great! The breakfast buffet had a big selection and could keep you going all day. The sky bar and pool rooftop was a lovely touch as you could escape up there all day! The rooms were clean and comfortable and you also got a small balcony. The hotel is well situated... More

We picked this hotel for it's location and we were not disappointed. It is on the sea front so great, with easy access to the causeway and the centre of Elounda . As many have mentioned breakfast is taken on a pontoon so you can share your breakfast with the fishes! Breakfast was good with plenty of choice, although 7.30... More
