We had the perfect family vacation here. We stayed at the Elounda Bay Palace for four nights, and hated to leave. We have been to quite a few hotels in recent years, and this is definitely among the best ones we have seen. It would be hard to list this place's highlights, as there were so many, but here are...

This was our third visit to this lovely hotel and we chose it because of its family atmosphere. We had an Elite Club DeLuxe hotel suite which included a jacuzzi and steam room and a sublime view of the Sea from our third floor balcony. The food was wonderful too; especially the special moussaka in the Aretousa Restaurant which was...

We stayed here recently, bringing around 20+ guests with us - as we were getting married in Aghios Nikolaos. The hotel is lovely, spacious grounds, attentive service, good half board food.

Great hotel with lovely staff and a fantastic relaxing atmosphere. We were greeted on arrival, offered drinks and a seat for the paperwork, escorted to our room where our bags had magically arrived together with a tray of filled rolls and salad as we were late for dinner. Room was large, comfortable, clean and had all we needed. Hand-held hairdryer...
