This hotel has everything you need for a relaxing holiday. Hotel is situated just outside of Elounda Village. The rooms are spacious up to date and very clean.

Great hotel with lovely staff and a fantastic relaxing atmosphere. We were greeted on arrival, offered drinks and a seat for the paperwork, escorted to our room where our bags had magically arrived together with a tray of filled rolls and salad as we were late for dinner. Room was large, comfortable, clean and had all we needed. Hand-held hairdryer... More

I've seen some of the negative reviews of this hotel, but certainly that wasnt our experience, and we very much enjoyed our stay here. We had booked what was described as a "Superior Sea View Bungalow" and it was a very large comfortable room with its own private garden very close to the saltwater pool. I dont think it was... More

Other reviews mirror our experience of this so called 5 star hotel. On arrival, we refused to accept the room shown to us - Superior (superior to what?!) Bungalow with Sea View. The room was small and in need of refurbishment (we were told this is due to happen next winter). It was so small that the double bed was... More

Our website and all of our travel agent partners have detailed pictures of all the accommodation at the Elounda Bay Palace. The Superior Bungalow Sea View with Sharing Pool that this reviewer booked is shown clearly to have a bed against the wall. So, why this review? Why book a room with this kind of bed if it is a...

Elounda Bay Palace is very relaxing with a beautiful outlook over the bay. Although it's a family friendly resort there is room and facilities for those who just want their own space with peace and quiet.This time of year tends to be adults and a few pre school children who had their own pool and other facilities. Lawns with sun... More

We have stayed here for two weeks and can't fault the resort. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly. The resort is spotless. Beach and pool areas are lovely. The food is varied and well cooked. We have only used the buffet restaurant. The room is clean and in good condition. Definitely will be coming back.

We stayed 12 days at Elounda Bay Palace in July. Our room was with garden view, on 4th floor. For our 10yo child the hotel provided a roll-away bed. Both, ours and roll-away beds were comfortable. Room was equipped also with safe-box, mini-bar, flat TV, sofa, table and chair. As roll-away occupied some space, the room became a bit cluttered.... More
