I stayed at Elounda Gulf Villas with my family of 4 (two adults and 2 teenagers, 15 and 13) and I must say that it was one of the most memorable family vacations ever! Firstly, let me say that we were among those fortunate families who were able to travel in 2020 because of our multiple nationalities. We chose Elounda Gulf Villas as the first part of our trip due to its location (stunning Elounda), spacious indoor and outdoor villa areas, and the fact that it offers a private gym, pool, and kitchen area. We also wanted a villa that is spread on multiple floors (my husband wanted to work) with a lift (due to mobility issues). It seems that EGV met all those criteria! Service was impeccable and really felt the Cretan hospitality 24/7! The food was DELICIOUS and consisted of traditional Cretan and Greek recipes with a modern twist! Everything that we tried tasted so fresh!!! We had to quarantine the first few days which actually was a blessing in disguise. We used the spacious outdoor areas around the pool to relax, spend quality time with the family, swim in the pool, exercise in the gym, and have quality family time! The internet was super fast and reliable which was very handy as my husband had to do some work. The concierge arranged for a private doctor to come and do the covid testing in our room and the next day we had the results! The day after, we started our adventure on the East side of Crete by hiring a car! There is so much to do in the area but also within a 1-2 hours radius! Just ask the concierge and will arrange everything for you! The highlight was our private one-day sailing trip in the Mirabello gulf! DO NOT MISS IT!!!! THANK YOU Elounda Gulf Villa! Hopefully, see you soon! Very soon!

My family and I were among those (lucky) people who were allowed to travel to Greece this summer from the US (as we are Greek passport owners). We were looking for a spacious luxury villa, with a private pool and gym, kitchen, which offers independence/ isolation from other guests and at the same time has hotel amenities (i.e. room service). After extensive research, we chose Elounda Gulf Villas and it was definitely the BEST DECISION EVER! Here is why: - The villa was STUNNING! Spacious, luxurious, spotlessly clean, each bedroom had its own bathroom, kitchen, lovely pool, private gym with sauna! - It offered uninterrupted views of the Elounda/ Mirabello Gulf. LOVED the sunrise from there! - the food was DELICIOUS! As we were waiting for our covid-19 test results, we were exclusively using room service which was the best decision ever! The food was mouth-watering! Fresh ingredients, Greek and Cretan specialities (but also some European dishes with a Cretan twist!). What a treat! Eating breakfast/ lunch/ dinner with a view in our patio was so relaxing! - The service was TOP NOTCH! The staff went above and beyond to make us feel like special and really made us feel like home! - In terms of following the covid-19 safety protocol, everything was perfect. Everyone was wearing a mask/ face shield, distance of 6 feet was kept during all times between staff and guests, masks and disinfectants were provided upon arrival! The most important thing is that the hotel brought in a doctor in our room when we decided that we want to be tested! - Last but not least, the wifi was SUPER fast and very reliable! During our 6 days stay there, I had to work for 4-5 hours every day in the afternoon (Greek time) for my US employer. I had my own desk and even access to a printer! The hotel management was really proactive and really created a very comfortable workspace for me - it felt like my home office in paradise! I am truly grateful to Elounda Gulf Villas for making it everything in their power to make our stay so special. You opened up my eyes and realized that work and vacation can be combined! See you next year! Thank you thank you thank you!

Could not fault the service of all the staff at Elounda Gulf Villas, It’s what made our stay feel like we were at home. Elounda Gulf Villa is about 4kms from the town Elounda, so close enough but far enough to feel secured and relaxed, taxi is only €8 into town. The rooms are well equipped with everything you need for your stay, and if you need anything else the hotel will accommodate. We had a private villa that looked over the whole bay, with a gym, sauna, and spa. We did the half board, and the food was amazing. Nothing to fault about this hotel at all. Would recommend anyone wanting to come to Crete to stay here.

From the moment we arrived at EGV we realised that this place was going to be nice. We were greeted by Giorgis the hotel manager who explained everything and how they were working with the Covid restrictions. Guests do not need to wear masks but all of the staff do. We felt totally at ease and in safe hands. We had a 3 Bed Villa with a pool and a great view. The Villa was huge and plenty big enough for 6 let alone the 4 of us. Really clean, AC worked and the WiFi superb. The only negative was that we all felt that the bathrooms (2) were tired and in need of a facelift. Other than that, we couldn’t fault the Villa. It would be 5* if the bathrooms were improved. We were Half Board so we ate Breakfast and Dinner in the Argo Restaurant. Food was gorgeous and of a high quality. The staff were really welcoming. A special thanks to Nikos. The others were great too but I’ve forgotten their names. They couldn’t do enough for you. The hotel is set in the side of a hill approx 25 min walk from Elounda or €8 taxi. Agios Nikolaos is €14 and bigger/busier. Great week in the sun, great hotel. We will come back.
