We had a standard room in the main building. The room was spacious with a couch and chair, a tv, a comfortable bed, a clean bathroom and a little porch with 2 chairs. Room 110 was however below the restaurant, so we were usually woken by chairs scraping or load footing, but it wasn't too bad. The main, buffet style,... More

I would wholeheartedly agree with all those reviews who state that in the case of the Sensimar Elounda Village Resort, their reputation rests on the courtesy, professionalism and friendliness of their quite wonderful staff! While I can appreciate how the occasional blown bulb, or jaded headboard might annoy some people, I simply saw a wonderful hotel with a strong policy... More

I survived the two oiks in the airport lounge, the 10 month old twins on the plane (where'e the sense) and Heraklion airport. However, I only brought one pair of trousers which I wore on the plane (as did so many other fellas) - so beware, the hotel restaurants only allows long trousers. The hotel is ideal for those who...

We thoroughly enjoyed our 10 night stay at this hotel. We had a Mythica package and room with private pool - this was really lovely and we spent most of our time on our own sunbeds, so didn't really spend a lot of time by the main pool. I used the spa a few times for treatments and these were... More

The hotel was lovely and the staff were amazing. The food wasn't what you'd expect a 5* hotel would serve but there was something to eat each day but very much the same every day especially in the buffet restaurant. Joined in with some of the fitness activities and entertainment and Ash was absolutely fantastic and kept us very entertained.... More

Everything was absolutely lovely except our accommodation. We had booked a garden view bungalow which although kept spotlessly clean was tired looking, shabby and poorly appointed. We used a room in the main hotel as a courtesy room on the day we left and it was far nicer so I'm afraid I wouldn't recommend a bungalow and feel a lot... More
