We visit Elounda Ilion Hotel on September 2013 with my wife and the one year old son. Hospitality at its best. Great room, great swimming pool and most of all great views from the pool area as well as from the room. Great Staff, very helpful always with a smile. This was the first visit on the island of Crete... More

Hotel positioned up a very steep hill out of the village of Elounda but that gives it incredible views over the bay. Room adequate but bathroom a little tired. Great breakfast, helpful and friendly staff, beautiful area to explore but car needed.

Having read some of the previous reviews about this hotel we were unsure of what to expect, but we need not have worried. Our arrival was a late night/ early morning one but the member of staff on duty could not have been more helpful even informing us that they had saved us a cold plate of food if we... More

Having stayed in the centre of Elounda previously we were a bit concerned that the Illion would be too far out of town but we did not need to worry ! . This hotel sits with the more exclusive hotels just outside the town , but in our opinion the Illion has by far the best position and views in... More

Had a lovely relaxing week in the Ilion, although our room was very " snug" it was clean and we had a little patio to sit on for a night cap. The pool area has amazing views and sunbeds always available. Hotel is set on a very steep hill, but the compensation for this is the views. We walked into... More

We decided to leave the disgusting city of Crete and head to Elounda for a more relaxing and inviting stay. We arrived around 10 am and were told the room would be ready around noon. So we killed a couple hours in town and then went back up to check in at 12:00. At that point the guy said the... More
