After travelling all over Crete, this was our first time in Elounda - the place is beautiful, stunning scenery and as usual fabulous people. Sadly the accommodation was seriously not as advertised, the 'up a steep hill' was an understatement it was an extremely steep walk of over 20 minutes and although my husband and I are quite fit for...

I have never bothered to write a review on anywhere I have visited but feel Elounda Residence deserve more than a few minutes of my time. Yeah its up a hill but we were well aware of that, the last free bus is at 5pm a later one would be good but a taxi back from town will be between... More

We have had a 12 day holiday at the Elounda Residence and cannot say enough good things about our stay. We had 2 parents, 1x4 year old and grandma in our party and it worked for all of us. The staff were soooo helpful and could not do enough. Great with our little one. Pool area was terrific and safe... More

We booked an apartment for two weeks of self-catering, intending to spend about half of our nights in the town in restaurants, and half our nights at the apartment cooking. This is a formula we have followed before: we learned to cook paella; coq au vin; and spaghetti alla arrabiata in the same way before. I am afraid we were... More

We recently stayed there self catering, the cooking equipment isn't adequate, you get a small kettle and a 1 ring bench top hot plate and that's it, no toaster, no oven, no microwave so beware if going you can't cook and must eat out, we went to the Kafeino taverna on the hotel grounds and I have to say it's...

We have recently returned from a 2 week holiday at the Elounda Residence. I'm afraid I would not class this as a 4 star hotel. A decent 3 star perhaps but it is lacking certain things that for me would make it worthy of 4 stars. We have been to Elounda before so we knew the transfer time is 2... More

After Reading reviews on here we went with an open mind as we have stayed at other places in Elounda and knew the area was nice but was unsure with the negative views what we had done with booking this place.. Well I have to say that it was probably the best rooms we have ever had in 27 years... More

My children and I have just returned from visiting this hotel for the second time- something we have never done before. We were made to feel like old friends and the staff could not do enough for us. We had the most relaxed holiday we have ever had and I can't thank everyone enough. Some people have a few gripes... More

This is a traditional Greek hotel staff are very friendly and food is great, yes you have to put toilet roll in a bin but it's all part of your experience of been there all those people who are moaning about this place really need a reality check if you want a nice cheapish all inclusive friendly place this is...

We stayed in early May for 11 nights, returning for our 5th visit. As we met with smiling staff we were greeted with " Welcome home" and that is exactly what it feels like - home from home. There is very little staff turnover here which gives it a real homely atmosphere and you are made to feel like part... More
