We stayed in the Polydoros over New Year with my two teenage daughters staying in two apartment rooms. Compared to other hotels we found along the coast, this is a rare gem. Its small, family owned and right on the water adjacent to one of three beaches in the town but with its own semi-private frontage. You can swim directly from the hotel which we even did on New Years day. There is private parking and the two rooms we booked had kitchens and were very roomy. Apartment 6 directly faces the sea with a private balcony and Apartment 5 which also has a sea-facing balcony is less private but has a large separate bedroom and huge bathroom. This is a small hotel ideal for travellers that appreciate that it has all you need for a perfect vacation in this part of the world. To walk home along the beach at night from one of the many local tavernas is a million dollar experience. You are also close to a beautiful cove and you can run from the hotel around the headlands. Agios Nikolaos is a pleasant town, far more happening than the dowdy Elounda. We also hiked on the island across from Elounda. I would not recommend a lot of the nearby coast as the rampant development has restricted beach access which is a pity.
