Just back from spending two weeks at this hotel couldn't fault it. Hotel staff were both friendly and helpful, rooms were cleaned every day. We stayed half board, if we go back we would just do b&b for the simple fact that the evening meal was far too much you got three starters a choice of two mains and two... More

Returned for our fourth visit, this time for our honeymoon. Thought long and hard on where to spend three weeks and the Akti and Elounda it had to be. Such a relaxing place to stay. Breakfast is plentiful with everything you could ask for. Sunbeds on the beach area in front of the hotel, with a lovely pool area and... More

Comfortable room with 6 foot wide bed. The service from the staff in the bar, pool area and restaurant was outstanding. So friendly and helpful. There are free sunbeds on the beach but the 'towel reservers' try and nab them. Breakfast on the pontoon restaurant was so relaxing. Sunbeds by the top floor pool were usually available and plenty of... More

The hotel is average, front desk service is pretty poor. Rooms are basic and roof top pool and bar are alright. Nothing hugely exciting about the hotel, just a standard room but in a lovely location. Breakfast was ok as well,

Stayed at this hotel for the second year running and I would return again. The hotel is gorgeous, clean and in a fantastic setting and location. The staff are brilliant, friendly and are helpful if you need it. I'd recommend staying B&B as there's too many great tavernas near by. The walk to town is about 15 down the main... More

Just returned from a week at the Akti Olous, will definitely be going back. Wish i had been there for longer. Perfect location on the waterfront. Excellent facilities, friendly welcoming staff. The rooftop pool and cocktail bar were amazing. The rooms were outstanding, all the hotel has recently undergone an extensive refurbishment that equals any 5* hotel in the world.... More

Just returned from a week's stay. Me and my cousin booked B&B to give us the freedom of dining out in Elounda and glad we did as there are so many restaurants to choose from, ranging from budget to up market. Also breakfast at the hotel is incredibly generous - range of cooked breakfast available fried egg, poached egg, scrambled... More

We arrived to a beautifully clean & very nicely designed hotel. The staff are generally lovely & friendly & helpful. However we were staying half board & were made to feel like second class citizens because of it. We were actually told that we couldn't sit outside on the lovely restaurant over the water if they were busy, we can... More

Stayed here with our 16 year old son for a week. Booked a double and a single room. We got two double rooms, both refurbished to a high standard and spotlessly clean. Asked to have rooms together but they could not accomodate, however tge hotel is not too big and only a short walk to my sons room. Very quiet... More
