We have just returned from a wonderful holiday at the Elounda Bay Palace after many years absence. There is nothing that can really be faulted, the Thomson package meant we were half board and the food was both varied and outstanding in quality. Indeed the Head Chef was constantly present to take any queries or suggestions from the guests. The... More

We stayed at the Bay. the facility is great- you got all what you need for a perfect vacation: water sports (at extra cost), beautiful beaches, swimming pools, tennis, basketball and beach volleyball courts, many restaurants and bars, many sun...

Elounda Bay is one of the very beat areas on Crete to holiday. The setting right on the beach, the standard of the rooms, the quality of the food and the friendliness of the staff are all even better than you could expect if you have not been before. When others recommended the hotel I thought their views a little... More

A relaxing well organized resort hotel to be at. I was welcomed with a refreshing juice, after being on a very long journey, and an upgrade from mountain to sea view superior room. The check in was so fast but the way to these rooms was through staircases. Those who don't like climbing stairs must have proper selection of rooms.... More

The hotel is very nice although it is quite old. The choice and quality of food were very good and the kitchen personnel were very hospitable, especially chef Manolis and Yannis responsible for all the waiters. However, we did not like the spirit of the hotel that was mainly forced by the people from the reception and that reflects in... More

Our last stop on our Greek holiday was here. The infrastructure of the hotel is incredible: SPA, private beaches, several pools, internal carts to take you around, water sports, kid's club, teen club, 17 restaurants.
