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

Excellent location, with breakfast on the pontoon - crossing the road on a windy morning saw the toast taking off! Very good choice at breakfast, with a good range of hot or cold food. Our room was in the annexe, basic but comfortable. The staff were eager to please and couldn't do enough for us, helping to arrange a trip... More
