What a wonderful little hotel in elounda. We have just spent a week here and cannot praise the place enough. The rooms are clean and are cleaned everyday by a lovely lady. The staff are polite and nothing is ever too much for them. It is an ideal location to fully enjoy the splendour or elounda. We will definitely return.... More

Each time I return they have made further improvements, its just gets better each time.The staff are lovely, kind and always willing to help.

Day 1...Moved to higher room...After a simple request...Which was obviously... More

The place couldn't be cleaner, it was spotless... More

This was a last minute booking for me and my boyfriend to get away from the awful Scottish summer. This was an excellent find and we will definitely be back. The food was excellent and the Location offered just what we were looking for, beautiful surroundings and a very relaxing holiday. The hotel was ideally located just a short walk... More

This Hotel is in a fantastic location, with stunning views over the bay. Its only a short stroll to the square, but bars and restaurants on the doorstep, rooms are a decent size. Breakfast great but if your half board, the choice for dinner is very limited, but nice. Staff are very friendly, we asked for extra pillows, they were... More

Booked as a party of 3 through On The Beach (will NEVER use them again as customer help was non existent). 3rd bed was a chaise longe - kind of a half a sofa - with a sheet on, when we complained a bed was brought in, but chaise longe remained so no walk space! Insufficient wardrobe space for 3,... More
