Enjoyed a wonderful 2 weeks at the Akti Olous in wonderful Elounda. Rooms are clean and tidy, showers are good. Didn't have a fab few but wasn't a problem. Breakfast very good with fresh orange juice always available. Restaurant very nice but maybe a little more expensive than other places nearby. Beach fine and good for a bit of snorkelling.... More

This was a last minute booking so didn’t exactly know what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of this boutique hotel which has been renovated to a good standard. The rooms were modern and of good size with a glass cube type bathroom. The room door entry was by a contactless card which was unusual. Air conditioning... More

The breakfast was brilliant and it was delightful to sit overlooking the sea having the substantial breakfast . We very much enjoyed spending time in the Sky Bar with the barman... More

Nice,quiet place,fair room with sea view. Good breakfast especially nice to be able to have at directly at the seaside. The hotel,s beach however is rather small and unfortunately open for non-residents too. Therefore seats and umbrellas can be too few. The parking lot is unfortunately unguarded ,therefore sometimes the parking places were blocked by non residents.

I visited this hotel with my husband for a weeks break in August. We contacted the hotel in advance to arrange a taxi transfer on arrival & we were so glad we did. Our driver was waiting for us in what we thought was a mini bus. When he opened the doors we felt like superstars with the flat screen... More

I cannot fault this place at all, we've had a thoroughly enjoyable holiday here. The location is beautiful, at the quiet end of town and only a ten minute walk into the main square. The hotel is kept very clean and the staff are so friendly, especially Harry who runs the Sky bar, he makes everyone feel so welcome. I... More

My first time to Crete and most certainly not the last time..Mainly because of the amazing Akti Olous hotel. Not only impeccably clean and stylish (recently refurbed) but the staff are amazing. I cannot recommend enough this hotel, nothing was too much trouble and the views from the roof top pool are to die for! Elounda itself is a pretty... More

We are currently staying in Elounda for the first time in 9 years. By chance booked into the Akti Olous. We would highly recommend this hotel. Very friendly staff. Private beach (albit quite small). Rooms recently refurbished and cleaned daily (again by very friendly staff) Booked B+B with no complaints whatsoever. Can't ask for more. Will come again.
