We stayed in this hotel at the end of July and begining of August with our two boys (14 and 11 year old). The Elounda Residence Hotel is situated on a hill but it is not so steep like other people may have suggested. In 30 minutes you can walk down to the main road and back!!!. The hotel is...

The hills within the hotels complex are ridiculous. We had a room which was far away from reception and had to hire a car to get to our room it was that far. Would advise anyone staying here to hire a car as the walk from the main road to reception is around 30 mins. They have a free bus...

Located high overlooking Elounda as you'd expect the views were superb.Yes you may be a little isolated but there is a shuttle service and for those energetic enough the walk it's relatively straight forward into the heart of Elounda if you go over the top rather than follow the shuttle road route.This way the views are even more staggering. We...

Beautiful place with friendly staff who cannot do enough for you. It feels like holidaying with family great food too!! It is up a little way from the beach but the hotel provides a shuttle service down to the bottom of the hill where the beach is a short walk. It is not suitable for anyone who struggles walking.

Thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay at this hotel. The first room we had was some distance away from the hotel and on a very steep incline, not pleasant. We requested a room change which the receptionist happily obliged with. Rooms 1 to 52 are the ones to go for, just to avoid the climb back. We were on half board...

This hotel has excellent views across the bay and Elounda, with fantastic outdoor dining and bar areas. The hotel is located at the top of a hill, however is walkable in 20 mins with only the final 100m very steep. There is also a beautiful route into the centre of town from the rear of the hotel, though would not...
