My wife and I stayed at the AEV last September (2014) and I forgot to make a contribution, so here it is, looking back some 7 months later. Overall, impressed with some minor comments which I hope readers will acept are me being a little picky but trying to be informative. The AEV is well spread out on a slope...

We have recently come back from a week stay at Elounda Village and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. The staff were extremely hard working and attentive, the champagne on arrival and room upgrade were a surprise and we really appreciated it. Elounda Village went out of their way to make sure our stay was amazing. There was a great variety...

Another lovely holiday at the Aquila Elounda. Not everything was fully open but as it was the first week of the season at the Aquila the staff worked wonders to ensure we had a fantastic stay. Next time we would love to hear more Greek music rather than the English duo who were not of the standard we would expect...

This hotel is gorgeous. The view from the poolside is absolutely stunning and even in August, we always found a sunbed. The staff are friendly and polite and always stopped to say hello as you walked around the hotel grounds. We took a trip to Spinalonga which was well worth it. Don't book the trip through your travel company, just...

My husband and I stayed here for our Honeymoon and we had a great stay but I am not sure it is up to the standard it should be. The buffet in the evening is nothing to get excited about and as we were all inclusive (although not a lot is included in the package here) we were pretty disappointed....

So this year was the 5 year in a row that we have visited Aquila Elounda Village Hotel. It is quite simply perfect. The rooms/bungalows are lovely, spacious and set on a hill side in botanical gardens going down to a private beach. The hotel has a lovely spa, pools and a scuba dive school that is outstanding. The food...

Ok so let's be clear this is a resort, so it is in no way at walkable distance from any town centre and it is certainly not Santorini. You need a car, Crete is a large island. Also as long as you are taking this as a base point and not a place where you're going to spend ALL your...

Went here in May for a week with partner - a little late in writing my review. We had a lovely time and fell in love with Elounda, its a small village and the people were so friendly and welcoming.

We stayed here in July this year. I'll start with the good stuff, sorry thing. The room itself was nice with good views. That's where it ends. The rest of the experience is a bad one!
