We booked ourselves a room for two nights at the end of March using an online service and ended up staying an extra night because we were enjoying ourselves so much.
Our room was clean and comfortable with a small but adequate ensuite shower room and plenty of hot water. Our balcony looked straight out across the bay to Spinalonga.
Maria, the proprietor, could not have been more charming or helpful. She brought us a delicious breakfast every morning which we ate at leisure on our balcony watching small fishing-boats chug gently in and out of the harbour, and on our last morning she made spinach pies and halvas as a farewell gesture.
The hotel represents extraordinary good value, particularly given its prime location on the sea front. There is no internet facility at the Aristea but the Cafe Del Mar a few metres away on the waterside has free wifi. The extremely competitive tariff of the Aristea means that there are no extras - we took our own soap and shampoo, etc.
The personal service we received at the Aristea means we are keen to return to Elounda again sometime, perhaps after the summer, and we will definitely be booking a room at the same hotel.
