Hotel is very nice, great location, breakfast on the jetty is great,. Only downside for us is the rooftop pool, all one level at 6 foot.

Great restaurant next door, Melissos.

Best restaurant for us is the Olondi in the harbour.

Much nicer and more traditional than Stalis.

Lovely large beach in the town but we enjoyed a small beach out of the hotel , turn right and about 500 yards.

You will love Elounda we stay at Hiona only a few 100 yards further along both are in beautiful locations overlooking and next to the sea lots of eateries and a lovely boat trip to Spinalonga and the Happy train trip up the mountain is great with fabulous views for pics and a stop for lunch

I'm sure you will be back after one visit

Will be our 3rd next year.

enjoy.

Hi there

I am sure that you will love this area of Crete and Elounda, I really like Rhodes as well but my favourite place to stay is in Lindos, was there in September..... the island of Crete is very different to Rhodes but just as beautiful :-)

OK are you intending to hire a car to get out and about? or do you just want to chill ? and what time in May are you visiting too..... can give you lots of recommendations for places to visit around this area - just let me know your interests :-)

Karen,

I am sure you will love the Akti Olous, we have been staying there for many years and it is a lovely hotel in a perfect setting.

A couple of restaurants to try:- Katafigo just along the road, Dimitris in the square (the best value for money and great food), Anemomolous which is just through the town going towards Plaka very good food.

You will find every where you go in Elounda you will get a big welcome I am sure you will want to return in the future as many people do.

Cheers.
