We had booked on Elounda Bay Palace, but due to have it booked through American Express we got an upgrade and were moved to Elounda Beach. Also we were given a Bungalow 15 meters away from one of the beaches.... So it couldn't get any better?? The room needed some refurbishing and update, 5-10 years ago. It looked like a...

This Hotel is everything you would expect. Excellent location with beautiful beaches ( white sand and great water temperature). We stayed at a sea front bungalow, only 3 steps from the beach, with private sunbeds section! My husband and I had a morning swim before breakfast which was amazing! Rich breakfast buffet with anything you want and very nice quality....

Spent 1 week in June at Elounda Beach in a one bedroom suite. Overall it was a very destination for families (we traveled with 2 boys). Pros: Amazing daily breakfast, nice beach service and set up with loungers and towel service/bar food with fun water activities on a nice private beach. Room was a nice size and well appointed.

We chose a week at the Elounda Beach to celebrate our wedding anniversary and from the moment we arrived it was like a second honeymoon. As soon as we came through the front gate the elegance and peace of the resort struck us. The staff at reception were appropriately attentive and made us feel very welcome. Our suite was beautifully...

Something for everyone with well-lined pockets here; rooms in hotel like buildings, rooms alongside the sea. Some have their own decks, others infinity pools. Beaches of various sizes, plenty of bars, and restaurants dot the site, with various cuisines - Greek, Italian, Oriental. There are various facilities for children. The only oddity was the dodgy wifi which didn't work well...

Over 37 years we have gradually upgraded from other hotels in Crete and have consistently stayed at the Beach Hotel since 1998 because it is just exceptional, and keeps getting better.

I had over thirty years to visit this hotel. I could not believe the improvements. More modern without loosing the character that made it one of the best hotels not only in Greece but worldwide also. I enjoyed thoroughly every minute of my visit and i recomend it with open heart to all.
