About the location
Once a down-to-earth fishing village, Elounda has blossomed into one of Crete's premier luxury resorts, pulling in a cosmopolitan brand of clientele. Like nearby Aghios Nikolaos, it's got a killer location, with the Bay of Mirabello on one side and hills blanketed in almond and olive groves on the other. A lot of the village's old-fashioned charm has been preserved, particularly in the main square, where you'll find a smattering of Greek tavernas and little shops, and a pretty church looking out over the harbour. Out in the bay is the mystical island of Spinalonga, a former leper colony and the subject of Victoria Hislop's best-seller, The Island. The ruins of its town and Venetian fortress are ripe for exploring - as are the calm waters around the Spinalonga peninsula, which hide the remains of the ancient city of Olous.

We arrived late in the evening and were greeted by very friendly staff and a Glass of Champagne. This Hotel advertises itself as LUXURY and ALL SUITES. Luxury it isn???t and room (No 44) is certainly not a SUITE. It was a room with a bed, small Sofa, Chair and coffee table . An obstacle course with steps, small walls and little space to move around. The Bathroom was long with a tiniest Shower Cubicle behind the Bathroom Entrance Door - so small that every time my husband turned he hit the controls with his back and ended up in having either a freezing cold or boiling shower. We like a private pool as I have had 4 major Back operations and my Back is completely fused - therefore swimming is difficult for me but I like walking in the pool and doing my excercises in the water. Well this proved to be not possible as the pool depth was 1.60m deep all the way round - I am under 1.60 m tall so I couldn???t stand in the pool.
The next morning we told the Duty manager that this room wasn???t a SUITE as booked and totally unacceptable. We were told there was no other Room in the Grade we had reserved but we could upgrade to another for a special price of 590 Euros extra per night. We had no choice but to agree to this as the room No.44 was dangerous and unacceptable. Under protest they agreed to recind one nights charge so we still had to pay 2950 Euros extra. Imagine our horror when we met another couple who had a room (ie Suite - Bedroom upstairs and lounge downstairs with a pool) , had a bottle of champagne and fruit on their arrival and paid over ?? 1000.00 less than our original price for their 7 days. Having read some of the other disagreeable comments we definitely endorse them and I would recommend before you book, double check all the details first. The website is not to be trusted

The first thing to note about this hotel is the service. From the moment we arrived the staff were fabulous. We were met by a very welcoming, professional gentlemen and immediately put us at ease. All the staff genuinely made you feel at home and at ease to ask anything. Lovely British lady on reception was great has lived on the island a long time and can offer you lots of advice.
Our accommodation was a 2 bed, 2 storey 'suite' with a private pool. It was kept spotlessly clean and the twice daily maid was lovely. We wanted a very quiet holiday, proper shut ourselves away and relax week and that is what we got. The private pool enabled us to chill out completely, having a little dip when the temperature got too hot. We dined at most if not all of the restaurants and had some amazing food. The first night shortly after we arrived we went to the Italian 'Aglio e Olio' this was nice and relaxed, we were seated outside but sadly got bitten by mosquitos. First night unpreparedness, which we didn't make again! We ate twice at 'Calypso' which was superb both times. Seated outside almost on a little terrace overlooking the sea was just beautiful. Amazing dishes presented beautifully. Another evening we dined at The Old Mill on the child free night (bonus) again superb food in particular the crab salad was to die for. Other food to note was the Seafood Evening at the Yacht Club. Well worth it if you love your seafood. Big shout out to the sommelier (whose names I'm sad to say escapes me) he was the highlight of our trip. Fantastic personality, professional, with humour and knowledgeable, I wanted to put him in my pocket and take him home. All in all a super trip, the reasons I have not given this a 5 star is a) because I am being super critical, 2) some areas were slightly tired, our pool for example and 3) it is rather expensive but saying that we had an amazing week and will return at some point.
