“Fantastic holiday!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

We have just got back from a 10 night stay at the Elounda Aqua Sol Resort. We were a family of four and arrived in the early hours of the morning to a nice reception and to find they have prepared food and drink for us! Very welcomed after a long transfer from the airport! Our bungalow was lovely, very clean and had 2 bathrooms which was appreciated! Nice sea view and comfortable room. The food was varied, good quality and plentiful, nice local wine and beer, and snacks trhoughout the day! Wonderful place for a family, great entainment and the English families were made to feel very welcome by the French animations team who did their best to include all of us in their activities. The staff throughout the hotel were very friendly and helpful, and we will hopefully return next year.

Room Tip: All rooms are excellent, but bungalow rooms were very spacious.

Just got back from Elounda Aqua Sol and have to say it was a very pleasant surprise. We booked very late and were a little worried!! But this was a very enjoyable relaxing holiday.

The hotel was wonderful - staff were friendly and helpful, facilities were great with lots to do around the pool or a quieter pool with lovely views if you wanted some peace. Food was good, vary varied and never the same throughout our seven day stay. Room was cleaned every day.

Elounda is just down the road and a really nice place with a lovely beach and water-based activities. Lots of restaurants and bars.

All in all a really good experience and i would definitely go back!

Room Tip: try to get a room with a sea view. We were in one of the apartments/bungalows which had a nice garde...

We stayed in the Aquasol Elounda Resort in July and loved it! The staff were excellent, the rooms spacious and clean and we had a lovely view of the bay.The food was good and the hotel had a very relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Would definitely return.

Room Tip: Go for a sea view away from the entertainment.

The hotel is in a good location, on the outskirts of Elounda. A group of us went to Crete for a family wedding and many of us stayed at the Aqua Sol. The rooms were clean and well kept but tired and in need of decoration, there are two lovely pools both a decent size for the size of the hotel. The upper pool was a great area for peaceful bathing but the pool bar had not been open for 4 years which was not as advertised and there were quite alot of steps down to the lower pool bar. The food was ok, breakfast was better than dinner which had very little variety but you could always find something to eat, It was disappointing to find that the a la carte was also closed, this would have been a lovely place to sit of an evening. We booked all Inclusive but found that the drinks were watered down and diet coke & water were not part of the package so we ended up going out most evenings. The pool bar & lobby bar both shut 1 hour earlier than advertised which again was disappointing and if you came back after mid-night you could not get a drink of any kind, not even in your room. This could be a great hotel but in need of some tweeking and is more a 3* but not bad value for money. We did have a lovely holiday and crete was a beautiful place to visit, I would definately return but not to this hotel

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a normal size bath, some are the size of shower trays (not joking)

We returned on tuesday 31st July from a memorable time at this hotel. Not the last word in luxury, but most adequate - comfortable, reasonably spacious room, small en suite but always plenty of hot water. Attentive room service and very pleasant staff. We were half board, and the buffet breakfasts and dinner were most satisfactory. Wide choice to suit all tastes with plenty of fresh fruit and veg! Drink prices were good value, and some good wines. We enjoyed the substantial number of french holidaymakers in the hotel.
Our message is that from our experience of Crete, Greece remaims peaceful and friendly towards its visitors, regardless of what we read and hear in the media. If you are looking for sun, sea and an attractive tourist destination do visit Crete, and Elounda in particular.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view.

We arrived at the Aqua Sol on the 5th July after experiencing awful problems at another hotel in Elounda ( Elounda Residence), from the minute we stepped into the hotel we knew we were going to have a lovely time. The staff are absolutely wonderful & went out of their way to make our holiday enjoyable after what we had experienced the last two days. The food was lovely with plenty of variety in lovely surroundings and happy. polite smiling staff. The Sailors bar by the pool had food hot & cold throughout the day if you didn't want to go for lunch in the restaurant. Anna behind the bar was so helpful and looked after us very well. Sev, Andrea & the rest of the animation team whose names I didn't get worked so hard to entertain the guests, rehearsing twice a day to produce some great shows. Although the hotel has mainly french guests, once the team knew we were english they translated for us. It,s about a 25min walk into the centre, & Agois Nickolias is about 7km away but you can get a cab to both places which are quite cheap.
