We stayed at the Akti Olous in Sep'07 and returned just a week ago so the memories are fresh!
If you are looking for luxury, forget it, as with the majority of the greek islands, accomodation is basic, a room with 2 beds and a small shower room and i mean small!
Rooms are cleaned daily, but towels are every other day.
The location is perfect outside the hustle and bustle of the village square but only a 10 min walk away.
What makes this a cheap and cheerful place to stay is the roof top pool, as the beach is fairly poor.
Lovely views and friendly staff made this a great stay.

Stayed for 4 nights july 2007 and found this hotel to be nicely situated with a rooftop pool and view. Food is basic but the restaurant next door makes up for it. Rooms are small and basic but try to avoid the ones facing the new building next door.Friendly staff.......enjoyed the stay and would return.

We stayed at this hotel in September 2006 and had a lovely time. It is such a shame though that a new building is being built so close to the hotel blocking the view completly from the north side. We were lucky enough to have a South facing room with a terrace. The rooms are quite small especially the bathrooms but were cleaned every day. The rooftop pool is great although it gets really windy but the views from their are superb! The pool bar also has fantasic views but unfortunatly it closes at 6.00p.m. We stayed bed and breakfast and the best part about that was that you could take it over the road onto the hotel jetty resturant and eat it in a beautiful setting. The food was ok mainly cold meat cheese bread juice and scrambled eggs. The fun part was throwing your bread in the water to watch hundreds of fish fighting for it! The hotel resturant if you pay for lunch and evening meal was excellant as was the one next door.You can walk into Elounda two ways by the front walking along the waters edge past The Ferrymans resturant and plenty of others (all are very good to eat in) in no time at all you are in the square. Or you can go out of the back of the hotel and walk the road way past lots of shops and down into the square.If you go this way look out for MAMAS resturant the owner is so friendly the food good and he will sing to you as well. If you go to Spinilonga book yourself it is much cheaper we went on an all day one stopping off at a small beach and having a bbq as well. You can get a bus to Agios Nic in the square it runs every 30mins. All in all we had a lovely time Elounda is magical i would definatly go back and to the same hotel as long as i had a good room.
