Just returned from a weeks holiday and we were more than happy with our holiday. The hotel was all we expected and probably more. Yes the hotel is on the hillside and getting around especially to the beach could be difficult but will only be a problem if you have a mobility issue otherwise it's fine. The food was great...

Short 20 min walk to the town which we found very pleasant as it was on a coastal road.The pool... More

This was a little week treat for me and my boyfriend, and we left feeling relaxed, unwound and extremely happy. After the long transfer, we were welcomed with an upgraded room, Mythica package, champagne and cold towels. We arrived in our massive bungalow, with private pool and private terrace overlooking the bay. The bed was big enough for a party... More

The Elounda Village is a beautiful hotel in a fantastic position, the hotel grounds, pool areas and beach are lovely with plenty of sun beds. It was generally difficult to get a lounger on the 'sun bed jetty' as people seemed to save these early in the morning. The food was good with plenty of choice, the 2 A La... More

Loved the hotel with the best food we have ever had. Our only disappointment was the very unapproachable accommodation manager who was very unprofessional when we tried to change our room. Our room had no privacy at all with no net curtains therefore the curtains had to be kept closed. We went away for a very special occasion and this... More

Relaxing and beautiful setting, ideal for a peaceful and lazy holiday. The facilities were faultless with friendly staff that aimed to please, for example drinks service around the sun beds. Despite the hotels clear policy on sun bed reservation, this was still going on, but that's part and parcel of going abroad and despite this there were still an abundance... More
