Me and mu boyfriend stayed at the Elounda Palm in May for a week. As soon as we got to the hotel we were greeted by the lovely Maria, she was so welcoming and friendly and showed us a room we could upgrade to, we did upgrade to a room with a pool which is highly recommend, it's so wonderful to be able to walk out of your room to your own pool!! The food was lovely, lots of variety, cold and hot food and the ice cream is delicious!!! The hotel isn't in the centre of Elounda but most of the resort hotels aren't, the village is only a short 5 euro taxi ride where there's bars and restaurants, shops etc. Most nights we spent in the hotel bar, the bar tender Sotos is brilliant...you can tell he really loves his job, he makes beautiful cocktails, the couple who said he was a show off we're obviously just impatient and ignorant. Sotos is a genuinely lovely person and takes real pride in his job especially cocktail making. I was talking to him about the fact I once worked in a bar and was terrible at making the B52 shooter so later that evening he asked me to go behind the bar so he could teach me...so thoughtful!! Ask for the apple mojito.....by far THE best cocktail I've ever had. I am the kind if person who appreciates fine details and this hotel and its staff certainly delivered on this. The whole holiday was lovely and I've never met such genuine and welcoming people as the Greeks, in fact I'm already considering a greek island hopping holiday for next year!
