This hotel is good if you are travelling by car, otherwise it is too far from everything. View is nice. Rooms are light and bright. Bathroom is very small. Good value. Food is very basic, I wouldnt recommend full board. There are many nice places to eat on Crete.

I spent 10 days in September at this hotel. My room (320B) name's "Aptera". It has been renewed recently and looks very nice and comfortable. I had nice sea-view from my room. Air-conditioner and fridge are for free. There is 24" LCD TV with lots of channels on different languages (English, German, Italian, Russian and others). "Aptera" is situated on... More

I first visited The Selena Village around ten years ago and it was a picture postcard hotel, all blue and white sugar cube rooms, it has since had a lick of paint but the rooms are unfortunately still a little tired. It is situated on a steep hill and our room was around half way up next to the back... More

My wife and I spent a week at this wonderfully authentic greek styled hotel and we both say it is probably the best holiday we have ever had! The half board option is by far the best and we enjoyed lunchtimes in the lovely taverna style pool bar looking at the fantastic views. The staff were very friendly and were... More

The hotel has an excellent location between Elounda and Plaka with a wonderful view of the island, Spinalonga and the bay. In early August the hotel was wonderfully quiet with a choice of sunbeds at both pools and the beach. We had to extend our stay due to illness and the hotel were very accommodating and helpful. We stayed in... More

Stayed a week with all inclusive. But here all inclusive is having served the same food every second day. But it almost tastes the same every day. The hotel lies next to a main road, so there is some traffic noise, especially in evening time. Noise isolation is a big problem. You can hear everything what's going on in the... More

Located midway between Elounda and Plaka (both approx. an easy 20 minutes walk) the hotel commands a stunning view of the island of Spinalonga. The staff were friendly and accommodating, especially Heleni at the bar who made us feel more than welcome. The food was tasty, wholesome, regional and plentiful (don't expect haute cuisine, it's not that sort of establishment).... More
