This is a fairly basic hotel, but pleasant and homely, everything is fresh, clean and comfortable. I liked the calm, clear colours in the room, that with the gorgeous sea and mountain views means you can really put your mind at rest. Because the hotel is at the edge of Elounda village, it's peaceful and feels like being in the countryside.
At the same time the town with plenty of restaurants, bars and shops is close by. There's a lovely tree-lined seaside promenade into it, about 15-20mins walk, or there's a good local bus and taxi service.
(The hotel has just been renovated over the past few months and I believe under new management as of this year).
The hotel is fairly small so if you don't like all those massive resorts and to be surrounded by hordes of other tourists then this is for you! Staff are genuine, friendly and helpful. All the facilities are in good condition and service works fine. (Contrary to some of the other reviews here, my room was cleaned every day and fresh towels provided; air-conditioning also worked just fine, and that was in hot weather around +30C). The hotel serves a delicious home-cooked buffet dinner in the evening (at extra cost), with a variety of local foods.
The hotel has its own little beach, or there are two public beaches, with a bar, on either side.
I'm not a great budget traveller but would warmly recommend Selena hotel. Didn't feel I had a budget experience but the most relaxing holiday ever!
