Elounda is a fifty minute drive from Heraklion airport. This hotel combines older, more traditional Greek/Cretan influences (in terms of architecture and furnishings) with a more contemporary look and feel and the result really is pleasing and relaxing. We opted for a bungalow with a pool and this was lovely. Well proportioned (although shower cubicle on the small side) and... More

Really quite amazing. I love the suites in Mare with enclosed gardens with private pools. The restaurants all have well above par dining and service (which is not LeDoyen, but is just fine). The sky is blue and the summer is good. Even the guys on the beach doing the boats and rides are wonderful. OK. Yes. If you have... More

This hotel is perfectly place in Elounda . A few minutes into the fishing village. Spacious with a small private beach. From the moment you arrive you are treated like an individual not a number. All the staff are courteous and nothing is too much trouble. Our room was a deluxe bungalow with a private pool which overlooks the sea,... More

This is a lovely hotel located on the beachfront in Elounda. It is a very rustic hotel with some amazing sea views and charming exterior. In addition, the hotel grounds are massive with amazing views and a lovely beach. You can also use their nearby sister hotels for beaches or kids daycare. The hotel arranges a free shuttle anytime you... More

We arrived late at night but were shown nothing but friendliness by the drivers and reception staff. The rooms are very pleasant, air conditioned and there's always plenty of bottled water in the fridge. Waking to the stunning views across the turquoise pool to the deep blue sea was so uplifting and left me speechless! Beautifully landscaped gardens surround the... More

"Your holiday starts as soon as you enter," said the young lady as she gave us glasses of champagne on arrival. She was right. After that, every request was met with cheerful, quiet efficency by staff who clearly enjoy their work. Staying at this hotel was an absolute joy. The staff, from the lovely housemaids who greet you with a... More

We've stayed in some really nice places in our lifetime, but this was over-the-top. We had our own private pool and that was overlooking a breathtaking view of the sea. The staff (and especially Anatasia) seemed genuinely concerned for our well being and the theme of Elounda Mare is relaxation. However, we are sort of a go-go-go couple and so... More

My wife and I stayed for 11 nights in early May - it was a special birthday surprise for her. I had booked a superior bungalow with pool, and the accommodation was wonderful. The furnishings were excellent, but a little dated. The room was always kept spotlessly clean by an excellent housekeeper, and the pool was serviced every morning. The... More

Of course, having wonderfull weather already brings 50% of a holiday success. But, definetaly, the other 50% was saveguarded by this wonderfull hotel. We stayed in a villa having its own pool facility and we hardly had any need to go somewhere else. Rooms and facilities were great. Food in the hotel is terrific in all restaurants in the hotel....
