This is the famous Elounda Beach. A legendary place on Crete, where's dozens of exclusive visitors have been served. Still is a magical place on a magestic set up. Some rooms need a kind of renovation, but who cares! This place has a vibe...You feel it from the very first moment.

Come to Crete to relax! Forget the sightseeing tour bus and all those hassfull guided visits... Here you do enjoy the blue lagoon sea, the sexy swimsuits and the everlasting sunny days. The resort is really magnificent, convenient and dreamful. Enjoy!

There is no doubting the fact that the Elounda Beach Hotel and Villas complex (established in 1971 and much developed since) has an exceptionally beautiful setting, looking out on to the sea and Spinalonga Island. It has a number of restaurants from which you can choose and several amenities on the water including diving, waterskiing, jet skiing, and there is... More

The Elounda Beach Hotel is part of the Leading Hotels of the World group so it pitches itself against the best in the world. All prices in the hotel and in the restaurants reflect that positioning. Judged against those criteria, the setting is excellent with stunning views from high above the sea. However the fabric of the main hotel is... More
