“Best view point!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2013

The panoramic view of Elouda is breathtaking! Rooms were clean, fully equiped and nicely decorated. Bathroom and A/C well maintained. An unexpected plus was the restaurant, Terasa. Great food, friendly service and value for money! Hidden jewel for the area! Tip: Ask for the special, wooden oven made greek cuisine on weekends.

We didn't stay in the hotel but visited the restaurant as it was the only restaurant within walking distance of our villa. We had our pre-meal drinks on the terrace enjoying the fantastic views over Elounda. On the evening we visited the wood fire oven was operating and we enjoyed some superb offerings from it. Three of us had goat which was absolutely delicious. The restaurant is comfortable and although inside you can still enjoy the vista.

During a recent stay, my girlfriend and I dined at Adrakos three times. The first time because it was easy (right across the road from our apartment) and the second and third time because we really liked it! The restaurant has incredible views down to Elounda, Kokolithia and Spinalonga and once the twilight kicks in and you're sitting there with your carafe of wine, you won't want to leave!

At least two specials every night and some good traditional Greek dishes too. Very well priced, good local wines, very friendly service and a you can eat inside the restaurant or outside across the path, overlooking the bay. Make sure you check out the comfy chill out area too. It's a romantic experience for sure! Loved it. :)

Adrakos is right by the bus stop on the way to Plaka and forty paces north of the Ag Nik bus stop. €1.60 in either direction. Go there!

Stayed here for a blissful week in early October. The staff couldn't have been more welcoming and friendly.By the end of the week , we felt part of the family ! Our apartment was very clean and comfortable and the views from the balcony were spectacular. We got up early each morning to enjoy the sunrise over the Elounda bay. The swimming pool was beautifully appointed. We were here to enjoy a Pilates retreat and it was the perfect setting for our morning and evening workout in the yoga studio.We hope to return in the spring.

Room Tip: The higher rooms have the best views but all rooms face onto the bay

What more do you need from a hotel? Great view? Pleasant staff? Delicious food? Excelent services? Cleanness? Quietness? Adrakos has it all!!!
The view from the room was simply breath taking. The rooms were spotless clean and the area is very quiet for a couple. It was exactly what we needed, If i hadn't seen otherwise, I would think that it is a 4 star hotel. We didn't move an inch from the hotel and we sat in and enjoyed the view for a whole week. We simply loved it !!!!!!

Me and my partner stayed here for 10 days in July.

The best view of all the hotels! Up on the hill between Agios Nikolaos and Elounda.
Every day there are constantly people stopping on the parking lot to take pictures of the view while your're lying at the pool having the view all day long for free!
The owner has created several places to enjoy the view with small lights to enlighten the area in the evening.
Its very clean: every day a lady cleans your appartment and does your dishes. New sheets every 3 days.
The pool is big, very clean and the half of the pool is 2.80m deep, great.
There are enough sunbeds but on an everage day there are maybe 2-4 people at the pool, the rest of the people is probably visiting stuff.
Most of the people who stay here are people who want to find rest so the atmosphere is very relaxing.

The chef makes wonderfull dishes. We had Stifado, great feta cheese, stuffed chicken! and some other things. The menu is different every day and the 2 times we ate at the appartment it was both times great. Also good relaxing atmosphere with nice music and nice people around you.

Off course the beds aren't the same as the ones in your home (litle bit harder probably) but you forget that every time yoy open your door and see the view on Elounda and Spinalonga.

Tip: go to Knossos taverne in Agios Nikolaos, take the first road left into Agios Nikolaos: after 1 mile it's on your right (yellow collumns). Great restaurant!
If your looking for the best view, rest and a great time to spent your holiday: go to Adrakos.

Stayed here for the third time, this time mid October. One review mentioned flies! They have never been a problem in April, September or October. The main draw is the spectacular view from all the apartments. The staff are friendly and changed the sheets and towels after 2 days at no extra cost, the rooms very clean and well equipped with bathroom and kitchenette. Great value. Midway between Agios Nikolaos and Elounda so you need a car or catch the bus just outside the apartments. We hope to go again.
