We decided on the Elounda Blu having agreed that Santorini was too expensive and that we wanted a hotel that did not have any children running around. We are not against seeing children having fun, but this was a special holiday for us. From checking in we had a fabulous time, the staff were extremely friendly. The facilities were always... More

Lovely hotel with excellent staff. Our first room was in the 200`s and we found it a little small and over looking a private pool, not the best for us or the people who use it. The next morning we asked for another room and the manager at reception, Nikos, was brilliant and we where lucky to upgrade to an... More

We have just got back from a 10 night stay at this beautiful hotel.

Stayed here for 2 weeks and had a great holiday. Staff were friendly and the food was nice. Probably the worst thing about the hotel is the amount of steps up to your rooms which are very slippery and quite dangerous and also the ones up to the hotel from the main road... not dangerous, just difficult in the heat....
