This review is late but some reason it never showed up, I must have pressed the wrong button. We went here in sept and loved it. The breakfast out on the jetty restaurant is wonderful, buffet style but as much as you want and sitting outside with the water washing around is a lovely way to start the day. Nice... More

We stayed here for a week in early October and had a wonderful time. As said in previous reviews, the hotel is spotlessly clean and the staff are helpful and friendly. I am aware that the rooms vary in aspect and size, but we were very happy with our side sea view and comfortable little balcony. On one side we... More

If you love Crete, but not large and impersonal hotels, then this place is just perfect. I would like to keep it to myself, but I will be honest and share the experience. Running between the seafront and the road into Elounda, near the causeway over to the island of Kolykotha, the Akti Olous, in the lovely resort of Elounda,... More

We stayed in October 2013. We'd asked in advance if we could be close to my aged mothers room and they did manage to get us onto the same floor, albeit at opposite ends. The hotel itself is well appointed and nicely situated at the quiet end of Elounda. The rooms are a bit on the basic side. We had... More

+ went to Elounda Akti Olous first week in October and were hoping for a sea view room to the front however were allocated a fairly small room to the side of the building which was clean, had a tiny balcony and could just see the sea. Food was acceptable but breakfast a monotonous repetition of tinned sausages, fried eggs... More

This was our first trip to Crete. I believe we choose the right place and the right hotel. However, the timing might have been better as the weather changed in the last half of our holiday. I read all the reviews about the Akti Olous and I must say I agree with the majority of them. The hotels situation could... More

just returned from a Jet2 holiday at this hotel. As has previously been stated room allocation here is a bit of a lottery but ours was great .217 on the second floor, right at the front of the hotel with a good sea view.

Early September saw our fourth holiday in Elounda staying once again at this lovely hotel. You could not wish for a nicer place to stay. The hotel staff are all so friendly and you are made to feel so very welcome. The location is stunning and the food and service offered at the Blue Sea Restaurant is first-class. We also... More
