It's a 2 hour transfer from the airport. Finding the hotel when dropped off by your coach at 01:00 in the morning isn't easy without a tour rep to offer guidance (jet2). It's down a dark alley which you follow to the bottom through overhanging bushes. Thankfully another person staying there showed us the way. A warm and friendly greeting... More

Just so much better than our expectations Staff friendly and helpful, food excellent, rooms big and clean. Probably situated in one of the best spots in Elounda. Quite but near to everything. Great private beach, excellent rooftop pool and stunning views. Already working out when to come back next year.

I would like to point out that this hotel has the best location of anywhere I have ever stayed. It was 5 min walk to all bars and shops. On the beach front and just that bit far enough away that it was quiet at night. Our room was a good size. Shower wasn't great but it did the job... More

We stayed 12 nights in this hotel in July and we were very pleased. The staff are very friendly and could not do enough for us. Great location, walking distance to the charming little village of Elounda. The restaurants on the way to the village are excellent, great service and again the staff and people we met were really helpful... More

We stayed 2 weeks in this hotel in July and were very pleased. The location is perfect… 5 min. away from the center of the very charming village of Elounda with lots of tavernas and shops. The room was perfect with a balcony and a sea view. The breakfast choice was excellent with the Greek yoghurt and honey… We ate... More

Just returned from 2 weeks and had a wonderful, relaxing time! Elounda is charming, picturesque and quiet/laidback. All the locals we met in shops, tavernas etc were really friendly. The hotel was great - we had a decent sized room on the 2nd floor at the side of the hotel and could see the sea and Olous peninsula from the... More

This hotel is ideally located a 5 min walk into the centre of Elounda and at the start of the causeway across to the windmills. Most staff are very friendly, especially on reception, the waitress and in the Sky Bar. Most rooms have a view of the sea but some are facing the wall of a neighbouring hotel. To avoid... More
