We had an Island Bungalow Waters Edge suite, which had amazing water views, a private terrace balcony and lots of room inside. Steam shower was a nice surprise. Splurge for this type of room and you will not be sorry. We felt like we had our own place, even though we were staying in a relatively large resort. The breakfast...

Elounda Beach Hotel, well what can one say when 5 Star standards are surpassed, not once but time and time again. This is not my first visit and surely not my last. First visit was back in '96, I fell in love instantly with the Elegant secluded setting, incredibly warm and welcoming staff from pool attendants, cleaning through all management...

Overall, outstanding across every category. The staff were amazing and the setting could not have been better. Just everything was perfect. We have 3 kids (16, 13 and 3) and all were satisfied with what was offered at the resort. Close enough to visit the village of Kritsa (good shopping) and Agios Nikoloas. We drove to Diktean Cave and the...

we originally booked to stay in the sister hotel (Elounda Bay Palace) for 1 week in May, but since the hotel decided to delay opening, we were placed at Elounda Beach (with the same promise of half board accommodation). On arrival, despite it being midnight, we were greeted outside the hotel by a man and woman who took our cases...

First visited this hotel in 2005 and was really looking forward to returning as we had fond memories of it. Have to say, our second visit wasn't anywhere as good as our first.

Visited on a 4 day break for a "girls catch up" and had a wonderful break. Restaurants fantastic - both food and service. We especially loved the Mediterranean restaurant because the meals were excellent and loved the entertainment. Rooms, spa , bars and beach area all equally good. Also visited Spinalonga which was so interesting.

We traveled as a family at the end of the season, i.e. mid-October. We stayed in the Ambassador suite, which (as described) is a bungalow-like building with 2 bathrooms, separate living and sleeping area, an outdoor garden space and (in our case) direct view of the sea and one of the small private beaches. The entire hotel complex probably dates...
