We stayed at 3 hotels around Elounda in May. This was by far the worst! I have stayed at many 5 star hotels and this one doesn't hold a candle should be a 4 star. Right when we walked in we heard another couple at the desk complaining, the bell boy forgot where he put our

I'm not sure this is the best seaside area in Crete (it all depends what you are into - I found it too built up, others might find it too rustic), but Elounda Mare was certainly the best hotel we saw in the area. It is not your standard resort hotel. It has lovely little nooks

Dear Mrs. B, Thank you very much indeed for your wonderful review. It was a pleasure hosting you and we are very happy that you have enjoyed your stay this much, appreciating our hotel and the area. About the air-conditioning, in the main hotel it can only be cool, natural or hot, not combined. During the early season, many elderly guests feel cold at night, so we cannot switch the cooling on. It might be helpful to know that in all bungalows there is an individual air-conditioning unit that can be adjusted according to each guest’s preference. Thanking you again, we hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you back to Elounda Mare, soon. Harry Maranghides
