Stayed for 10 days. Hotel is in a great location. Recently been refurbished to high standard. With the best shower room we've had so far in Greece. And the best pillows. Other reviews mention that the roof top pool is a bit tight for space. This is true. But a good view from the pool and Sky Bar. Had great... More

Firstly my advice would be to carefully consider take everything into account when booking this hotel as I find the Trip Advisor overall rating way too high and my own view is that the majority of reviewers are not considering the facilities etc but are reviewing based on their holiday experience of meeting up with old friends as clearly a...

This was my fifth time of visiting Elounda and by far the best hotel I've stayed in. Very modern, tasteful, clean and finished to a high standard. I hope to stay here on my future visits. The staff were lovely, rooms cleaned daily and the sky bar and restaurant were brilliant. I look forward to returning again soon!

The short. Friendly. Perfect location. Waterfront restaurant. Sky bar, elevated views accross bay. Clean, modern but compact rooms. Good food, adequate choices. Return customers aplenty. I hope to be one too in the not too distant future. Total chill out, where you are treated as an individual, (not like large hotels where you end up as a nameless faceless entity).... More

Just returned from a week at this hotel. We arrived late at night and allocated a room at the rear of the hotel. The room was a good size, but the shower room was small. When we woke the following morning and opened the curtains, we got a real shock. We looked onto some sort of enclosed yard, bordered by... More

Hi well what can i say my husband and i normally love staying in this hotel. We have done so for about 8 years. But sadly we did NOT love it this year. Although the refurbishment is lovely they have taken away a small table with a drawer we used to use for our smalls. Also not enough coat hangers.... More
