“Very luxorious resort with top service.....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2011

Me and my partner stayed here for a week on half board basis. I can truly say that especially the crew made our stay unforgettable. Very personal service made us feel very welcome. We stayed at one of the spa villas (Itanos), which is really beautiful with a lot of privacy and with an amazing view over the Elounda bay. Huge sleeping room, bathroom, sauna, gym and a steamroom. Beautiful decorated livingroom with kitchen, The restaurant served great food, and apart from all the wines from all over the world even the best greek wines (didn't know about that :-) The hotel is more like a boutique kind of hotel. We think it is much more intimate than the others in Elounda. Even the owner came over to personally greet us. Over all we have lots of beautiful memories and hope to return one day soon. Special thanks tot the restaurant crew !!!!!!!!

My brother and I wanted to surprise my parents for their 50th anniversary so we were searching for a cosy and luxury hotel but exceptional at the same time.
Our needs were complicated kids, teenagers and older people at the same time!!!
Elound Gulf Villas seemed to meet all our standards but reality exceeded our expectations!!!
Our parents stayed at a suite that was very large, with a very fine decoration offerring relaxing atmosphere.
The rest of us shared the "Limnes" villa, a three bedroom villa with a private pool and a fantastic sea view, and an amazing and fully equiped kitchen.
As to the service we felt as we were the owner's guests!!! the staff was always on call covering all our needs. The quality of the food was perfecavt and the BBQ organised in the privacy of ou villa in the poolside satyed unforgettable!!
Our kids enjoyed the pool and all the nearby watersport activities in the Mirabello gulf.
This hotel offerred us thewarmth and intimacy we were searching and we all decided to come back again next year!!!

Outstanding
It was the perfect place to propose to my girlfriend, they provide for us all I wanted to plan a surprise wedding proposal. A very romantic scenery especially during the sunset for the perfect dinner they prepared for us in the privacy of our villa in front of our own pool, the view is fantastic and the climate is great. The food was extraordinary and dessert delicious with a surprise stuffing the wedding ring.
In our villa we had the luxury to use the private gym and sauna after a swim in our pool.
We had all the facilities we needed, complimentary wi fi, satellite TV, stereo CD system, full equipped kitchen, great bathrooms with Jacuzzi.
The hotel service was more than great we had everything we requested immediately. We had plenty of space in our villa which was very clean.
The whole stay exceeded my expectations and I will defiantly go back there as soon as I can.

We had a wonderful time at Elounda Gulf Villas! We were a big group, lots of god friends and had rented two villas. We absolutely enjoyed every moment and especially the spa treatments in the privacy of our villas! The rooms were spacious, beautifully decorated, our private swimming pools were large and with great view! The service was excellent, everybody there was very friendly and we can't wait to go back there next summer again!

The villas are all different, so they have something for everyone. The staff are very friendly and helpful, they aspire to ensure that everything you need is already in the villa, but if not they will get it! You can relax and stay totally private in your own villa or venture to the main pool - this is the place where many A list celebrities go as they know that they have the choice. Spoil yourself go and stay!

The website for the hotel seems wonderful but the pictures are misleading at best. The stay was disappointing and we changed rooms at a greatly increased cost. The value of the rooms are beyond expensive and the rooms are simple, small and not worth the USD $2,700.00 per night that we were charged for the 3 bedroom unit. We have been very disappointed with the ownership of the hotel in resolving our concerns and have found the ownership to be deceptive, unprofessional and not ethical. We left the hotel early and stayed elsewhere.
