What a gorgeous hotel set in a gorgeous setting, only a short walk to and from the center of elounda (about 10 minutes) . Room was cleaned everyday and towels changed every 2 days. The staff were very friendly and helpful when we needed something. I'd recommend eating at the hotel restaurant too, one of the best restaurants we went... More

The location of this hotel is perfect. Only a short walk to tavernas, shops and the beach.plenty of choice but no clubs - excellent! The hotel beach is small but we didn't use it as the main beach was close enough. The food is nice and staff were all lovely.My only criticism is that the rooms are small and could... More

We stayed on a half board basis in one of the superior grove rooms which looked over to Spinalonga from the large balcony, the room was large and spotless as was the bathroom.We stayed... More

Hotel is in a great location with its own little stretch of beach, which was lovely. There is also a roof top pool and a bar, it has wonderful views across Elounda which is stunning with the mountains and blue/ green ocean. The hotel is a little dated if I'm honest but it is kept very clean and was comfortable.... More

Having never been to Crete and knowing one of the aims of the visit was to go to Spinalonga we decided to say in Elounda. The Akti Olous is superbly situated on the sea front approximately 5 minutes from the main square with bars and tavernas even closer. We booked a superior garden view room which is spacious, bright and... More
