I decided to treat my daughter to the poolside holiday she's been wanting for a long time. Given she'd just finished A Levels this seemed a great way to celebrate. A very hot day on arriving but a glorious luxury transfer to the hotel helped build the excitement. We walked in to an unassuming facade to feel as though we'd...

We booked a room with a private pool and were pleasantly surprised when we were upgraded to a superior room with a pool and great view of the beach when we checked in. From the first moment we were really impressed with all of the staff and the atmosphere at the hotel. Every meal we had was great with our...

The hotel is truly lovely, we had such a wonderful and warm welcome from the ladies on reception who gave us a much needed glass of fizz during check in. Our room was amazing, we had a private pool overlooking the beach and a lovely large sun terrace. Some of the room furniture was a little dated but this was...

Just returned from a two week holiday at this fantastic hotel, having also visited for a similar amount of time in June of this year. From the beautiful smile of Ekatrina who welcomed us back with great warmth and charm, to the thoughtful last day check by the incredibly professional Hotel Manager, Harry Maranghides, that we had thoroughly enjoyed our...

We stayed here for a week in late September and had a lovely time. The staff are very welcoming and attentive . The hotel is in a fabulous place with a great view of the bay . The beach is sandy and the water is warm. The pool was really chilly and we only ventured in once ! We had...

Fantastic resort with great facilities and friendly staff. Excellent food and great choice of alternative restaurants if you fancy it. I've never been back to the same resort again for a beach holiday, but I've been to Elounda 2 years in a row and cant wait for number 3!

I would love to give this hotel 6 stars because they very nearly deserve it because it is so good and they try so hard, BUT there are two things that should not be in a hotel of this quality and it's for that reason only that I mark it down, sadly. First is the swimming pool pumps and all...

What a fantastic hotel. We had a Cretan villa suite with private pool and the most wonderful view over Mirebelou bay. The service was fantastic as were the amenities. Couple of downsides ,no local restaurants, all 7 euro taxi ride away and no facilities for children and teenagers. In house dining was excellent other than a couple of quality control...

The hotel grounds are beautiful - so much botanical life and right on the water with a private beach. Sadly, while for the most part the property is clean and kept up, it is definitely in desperate need of a facelift and updating. I would not recommend a visit to anyone under the age of 60 (and even then you...

Got the opportunity to stay in hotel for one night because the Elounda Breeze had a power cut and sent us here. Fantastic hotel with a private beach, water sport centre and luxurous pool. The bar arae is stunning and boasts one of the most stunning moon lit views I have ever seen
