We splashed out for 2 nights in a junior suite with sharing pool, at the end of a 2-week trip to Crete. Unfortunately, our stay was not as we had hoped. Firstly, our request for twin beds was not honoured, although this was not critical. Secondly, the room was a long way from the car-park and there was nobody to help with our luggage, which we had to drag up steps. Thirdly, our bathroom door would not shut. On trying to shut it from the inside, my husband got locked in and we had to request somebody to come and let him out! So we didn't try to shut it again! Finally, the sharing pool. BEWARE the sharing pools are 5 foot deep, with no shallow end. For myself (at 5 foot 1 inches) and son (5 foot 3 inches) who are non-swimmers, this was totally useless - and certainly would be dangerous for small children.
On a positive note - the hotel grounds were lovely and the restaurant food was very good. It was an easy drive into Elounda to take the boat to Spinalonga and the staff were friendly. I would not, however, choose to stay at the Elounda Palm if I were visiting Elounda again.
