Pros: The service was out standing and we were upgraded to a room with a pool. Keep in mind this was in October and the weather was changing and it is a slow time of the year. We ate at the blue door, an outdoor café on the beach and the food was out standing. There breakfast buffet was out standing from Champaign to custom omelets. We also took a short walk to the next town, Plaka, for dinner and it was excellent and right on the beach also.

Pros: We loved everything! We had a personal infinity pool with a view of the bay! It was spectacular to wake up to and go to bed every night. Enjoyed the easy beech access, boat access, ability to walk down to local eateries nearby. The included breakfast was phenomenal. We had a spa day and it the massage was fantastic! We enjoyed relaxing in the common areas at night and the staff was always with reach if we needed anything (a drink, an ash tray for my cigars.. you name it they brought it). The concierge even helped us find a Mass to go to on Sunday.

Pros: Elounda Peninsula lives up its reputation as the best hotel in Crete. I have been visiting the island for the last 20 years on different occasions and you really can’t compare it with any other property: 1) location: the most important factor in a hotel.You dont news club cars, veniculars , elevators or anything else to reach the beach since all suites are located on the sea front 2) space: the suites are really spacious and comfortable 3) the staff is very well trained. I only stayed 2 days and at the second day they all knew my name. 4) food: was excellent in every restaurant we visited 5) spa: the best spa I have ever seen in my life

Pros: The Elounda Hotel Peninsula gave us a magnificent honeymoon with a 2 floor suite with private pool, champagne, splendid service, fantastic food and a heaven sent SPA-experience in nice and calm and suberb surroundings. We loved to stay at this hotel, and I´m considering to make a purpose once again only for having a reason to visit this nirvana again on a second honeymoon. We´ve no regrets by reccomending this beautiful place for anybody that seeks pure happiness
Cons: That We only had one week at the resort.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: We stayed at Elounda All Suites Hotel for our honeymoon, and in every way our expectations were exceeded. The staff here is AMAZING, and the hotel is gorgeous. We had a junior suite with a pool and beach front access and everything was literally perfect. The temperature of the private pool was just a little bit too cool for us at first, but the manager Manlios took great care of it. The staff did all the big things (and ALL little things) just right. Would 1000000000% recommend to anyone! If you're considering Crete, STAY HERE! We went to another island in Greece but Elounda All Suites was definitely our favorite part of our trip. Thank you to everyone at Elounda for making our honeymoon so special. <3

Pros: The view is amazing! The room was clean and convenient, very near to Plaka and Elounda, ideal for a getaway to relax! I surely recommend the Japansese restaurant, its a unique experience. The staff is always eager to help and friendly. The amenities of the hotel are very nice! The process of checking in and checking out was fast!
Cons: I found the breakfast very poor for such a hotel and the coffee was almost undrinkable. Room service should be on a 24hr basis and also the bar should stay open for a little bit longer than midnight.

Cons: /
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Location, views, staff.
Cons: The terrible music at breakfast
5,4 Okay
Pros: Breakfast was good but under-staffed. It was hard to get refills of orange juice and coffee.
Cons: There were several problems with the bathroom. When we checked out the person at reception asked about our stay and I mentioned we had bathroom problems. They didn't ask about it and seemed uninterested.
8,0 Excellent
Pros: Breakfast was good very large selection every morning. Definitely something for everyone from Sausages to pancakes to Fruit and yoghurt or cereal. The views are beautiful but you pay for it climbing the hills.
Cons: Everything is very spread out up and down the most severe hill I have ever been on. There are staff with golf buggy's that drop you to your room initially however walking up and down to the beach or even to the restaurant for dinner is not easy.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: The location of the hotel is beyond beautiful, right on a bay. The hotel is designed so every room has a view. The hotel is five stars with very upscale lobby, rooms , service and food Breakfast buffet was included in our room and it was very good and the first cup of coffee we had in Greece. The lighting in the rooms was extraordinary with most lighting being indirect and is very romantic. This hotel had something no other hotel in Greece had - wash clothes. This was the best hotel we stayed in for our trip to Athens Mykonos and Santorini
Cons: The shower was horrible The water never stays at one temperature and the water pressure was very weak. The security gate is placed in a very poor location requiring a stop on a 45 degree hill Not fun to drive up. Hotel was very hard to find coming from the airport Repeatly got lost in Agios Nicholas. Hotel is located on a very step land requiring use of golf cart to get to and from the rooms though you could walk down
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Very good hotel for couples. Very romantic and calming. We enjoyed it very much. We will surely recommend it to our family and friends.
Cons: The breakfast and the dinner are full of choices but none of the choices is very tasty nor special. It is all good but nothing special. We didn't try the other restaurants in the hotel though (only the main one). But this is a side note - we liked the hotel very much and we will do it again. The prices of the meals are also very reasonable so no harm.

Pros: This is a very big resort. Booked deluxe room with big balcony but upgraded to shared pool room. Too cold however to swim. Partial view as other rooms in front of us Very comfortable and nicely decorated rooms tho.

Pros: We had the lovely surprise to be upgraded. Staff was very nice and professional, particularly in the pit restaurant and in the SPA. Large choice of tasty food and drinks. Very quiet place, with beach access. You can a have a set of activities in the hotel if needed.
Cons: We had a short stay, and received a departure communication/gift the 2nd days we arrived (2 days before the leaving date). I guess it's a "process" but It's not pleasant when the hotel practically says "good bye" to you when you just started your stay. Gym is small and not modern.

Pros: Elounda Bay Hotel is a very nice place to stay for a relaxing holidays. The beach and crystal clean sea are the main priorities of this Hotel.
9,6 Excellent
Pros: Upon arrival we were upgraded to Elounda Beach which is the sister hotel next door. It is smaller, quieter and a bit more upmarket than Elounda Beach. That said, we still went to Elounda Bay for dinner and had the chance to check it out. Both hotels are in an amazing location, with blue flag beaches. Water is crystal clear, the view is magnificent. Both hotels have lovely gardens and nice restaurants. Staff are super friendly and always happy to help. We chatted to a lot of other guests and there are lots of people who come to the hotel every year for many years which is recommendation enough!
9,2 Excellent
Pros: Very good location, good beach and beach facilities, tasty food (at breakfast and dinner). Cleaning ladies did a very good job and were super nice) People at the reception were also very helpful. The trainers at the well fit studio were very good, I enjoyed all the training sessions. The atmosphere is relaxing
Cons: Guest relations staff was the worst - very annoying and absolutely unprofessional. They were ready to almost lick some guests and were very impolite to others. Couldn’t answer the questions, tried to push their own opinion. The restaurants on the territory are overpriced for the food they offer - nothing special, absolutely ordinary.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: -We had originally booked a classic double room and at arrival we were given an upgrade to a family suite with a shared pool. -The room was spotlessly clean. -All the hotel staff were very kind,helpful and genuinely friendly,I think this is the hotel's main strength.
Cons: Nothing important really.Some building facilities could use a bit of renovation but ,nevertheless,the experience was absolutely great.
7,9 Good
Cons: My room had no wi fi connection. I spoke with reception a few times and they said:"that's the wifi we have". Which was nothing. I could not work, could not watch a movie. In today's world, a room with no wi fi is unacceptable.

Pros: Good choice of food

5,8 Okay
Pros: Nice quiet location and great for relaxation. Rooms were spacious
Cons: Rooms could do with a little updating. A shuttle to Elounda Village would have been much appreciated - the shuttle only goes to the beach club. The pool had an obstructed view of the coast line - in the photos, the private pools from the villas are shown and we expected to main pool would be similar.
9,6 Excellent
Pros: Elounda gulf villas went above and beyond to ensure that we had the most relaxing, comfortable and enjoyable stay in Crete. They are attentive to detail with a constant smile on their face. The location, property and most importantly the staff go far above and beyond what we would ever have expected of them. A fantastic and memorable holiday both from a culinary (their menu is fantastic!) as well as leisurely perspective. Thank you so much to everyone at Elounda gulf villas and hello from Paris! Pieter and Hanna.
Cons: Nothing.
9,6 Excellent
Pros: The staff's service mind was excellent. They were friendly and made sure that we were ok. They even upgraded us and gave us a surprise for our honeymoon with a candle light dinner on our patio for free. The best!
Cons: If you want to be picky. If you like the beach and don't like chilling at the pool, the beach is a 15 minute drive from the hotel. But! They'll help you with a transfer back and forth.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Great location, fantastic view. Villa is very nice with swimming pool and all facilities. Great service from all staff members so all 5 stars (out of 5) but Katarina at the reception and Maria (beach) and Sofia Breakfast) are even 6 stars. Breakfast was superb. We will be back!
Cons: The price of the extra's like the bbq are too high, hence we did not take it.
2,5 Mediocre
Pros: Nothing
Cons: Property was bad for value of money, booking.com has misleading pictures of nice property and infinities pools, but thats for separatw villas, we stayed at suite and there was only one pool for all and not good and no nice view.Beach was 10 min drive and inner sea, not nice at all. Very unhappy with our choice.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: The staff were fantastic, the accommodation and grounds were beautiful. Lovely pool and restaurant. We especially loved the champagne breakfasts and there is so much choice at breakfast - they will cook eggs to order, we enjoyed some lovely omelettes and some crepes with chocolate and strawberries during our stay! We hired a car for the week (which was the same price as the airport transfer quote from the hotel) so we could see more of the local area and drive to some of the beaches. We drove into Elounda and took a boat trip to Spinalonga which was lovely. We had a wonderful stay and would definitely recommend for families as the staff were fantastic with our 9 month old. They would cook him anything we asked for which was brilliant. We would consider coming back to stay in one of the villas as they looked great.
Cons: The only downside with this resort is that food and drink is very expensive here - for example, a £22 bottle of Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc will set you back a whopping €115 which is a little ridiculous! I think the cheapest bottle of wine was about €39. Would recommend the half board option for this reason but you will still have to pay for the drinks. Whilst breakfasts on the HB option were excellent value, the dinners were a bit hit and miss. Dinner is a la carte, not buffet like breakfast so you don’t get as much choice. We had some lovely dishes for dinner, others were not as good and the desserts weren’t great - we ended up having ice cream on three occasions. Overall though, we generally enjoyed the food and I’m sure for those that have a bigger budget, the paid-for a la carte menu was very nice (it should be for the price!). The best thing about dinner was the lovely setting around the pool, the relaxing ambiance with the live music and subtle lighting with the lanterns in the trees. We felt like celebrities and it was so very relaxing, even with a 9 month old making a mess in his highchair! All the staff were fantastic.

The hotel was lovely and Christine and all the staff were fantastic! Always smiling and friendly and most welcoming. The sea view room with balcony was great and very clean. We didn’t book breakfast but it was available when we wanted it and it was very good: cereal, fresh fruit, yoghurt, continental meats and cheeses and also hot cooked selection every day. We can’t recommend the Krini enough if you want a relaxing break. We’ll be back!

Pros: From arrival to leaving the staff at the property were outstanding. They were all very friendly and couldn't do enough to help. My room was clean, and comfortable. The bathroom was small but also very clean and everything was in full working order. And the water and fresh fruit awaiting my room was a lovely touch. I would definitely go back.
Cons: If you take a car with you the property ask you leave your keys at the desk as parking is limited. This means they can move your car around if needed. It's not a massive drama and my car was not damaged in anyway, I would just prefer to keep my keys.

Pros: Gorgeous location! Everything we hoped for and more!
Cons: We walked into town most nights for dinner, as the restaurants were a bit limited and expensive.
9,6 Excellent
Pros: This is a wonderful hotel, with excellent facilities. The staff were especially pleasant and helpful. Thoroughly recommended.
Cons: The restaurants are very expensive compared to those in Elounda, where apart from the food, one can meet the local residents and enjoy their company. However, this is probably to be expected in a five star hotel. I didn't much like the fact that every meal or drink purchased in the hotel had space for a tip on the bill. I much prefer to give cash directly to those members of staff who deserve it
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Elounda Mare is located in a jewel piece of the island. The facility is one of the most family-friendly vacations spots you will ever find. Breakfast was excellent (even the espresso is very good, a rarity in tourist destinations). A big kudos & "Efcharisto!" to the front desk staff and everyone working there. Highly recommended.
Cons: There was nothing we didn't like!

Pros: Our villa was comfortable with a gorgeous view of the bay.

Pros: A very clean room! Breakfast had everything! Polite personel and what i have requested (hairdryer, etc) was immidiately given to me. A glass of wine as a thank you gift from the hotel 2 days before we had to leave. Although it is a hotel with many studios it is very quiet place! The neighbour hotels are noisy.. Beautiful view from our balcony to the sea! We recomment it for sure! Thank you!
Cons: Some small things like ants in our room coming in through the space between the main door and the floor. There was not enough space to put our things (shelves) in the cupboard so we kept them in our suitcases. The matrace could be a bit better but in general it was ok in comparison with other hotels. The curtain in the batgroom is not placed at the correct distance so it was sticking on your body while showering. Not enough sockets (Thermos had to be placed on the floor far from the table)

Cons: Nothing, didn't try the food so cannot make a statement on that. The wife preferred to go into town to eat.

Pros: This hotel is absolutely amazing! Everything about it is 5 star!! The view, the location, the rooms, the breakfast and especially the staff! I would 100% definitely stay there again if we go back to Elounda. Beautiful!
Cons: The only thing that we could possibly fault them on is that the beds aren’t that comfortable! But still very happy with our stay.

6,7 Good
Pros: Maria was extremely friendly and helpful, as were the bar and restaurant staff. They gave us a bottle of wine towards the end of our trip which was very generous.
Cons: There are a lot of wasps so I think there is perhaps an issue with nests. The shower and bathroom in our apartment were slightly broken and worn but it wasn't anything major.

9,6 Excellent
Pros: These apartments are in a great location, right on the waterfront. It is a 10 minute walk into the main square of Elounda. We had a first floor apartment (no lift, but the stairs weren't steep) looking onto other apartments at the back, which was fine, and you could see the sea to the side from the bedroom window and balcony. The location was far enough away that it is not so busy, but close enough that you can walk home along the water after a meal. There are many bars and restuarants along the waterfront. It is a little tricky to get your car down there, although we managed it with quite a large rental car, and there was always a free parking spot out the front or in the car park behind. The apartment is basic and clean, with an excellent air conditioner (an absolute necessity!) a fridge and a very good travel cot available on request. The pool is right next to the bar and is on the small side, but clean and refreshing (salt water). There is a small section which is waist height for a toddler, perfect for our 2 year old boy to splash around in. The staff were brilliant. It was a perfect place to base ourselves while we explored Crete.
Cons: The only small compaint would be that the shower head did not have a hook to hang it. I don't know if this is just a Crete bathroom thing, but it makes it a bit difficult.

Pros: Elounda Peninsula lives up its reputation as the best hotel in Crete. I have been visiting the island for the last 20 years on different occasions and you really can’t compare it with any other property: 1) location: the most important factor in a hotel.You dont news club cars, veniculars , elevators or anything else to reach the beach since all suites are located on the sea front 2) space: the suites are really spacious and comfortable 3) the staff is very well trained. I only stayed 2 days and at the second day they all knew my name. 4) food: was excellent in every restaurant we visited 5) spa: the best spa I have ever seen in my life

Pros: The Elounda Hotel Peninsula gave us a magnificent honeymoon with a 2 floor suite with private pool, champagne, splendid service, fantastic food and a heaven sent SPA-experience in nice and calm and suberb surroundings. We loved to stay at this hotel, and I´m considering to make a purpose once again only for having a reason to visit this nirvana again on a second honeymoon. We´ve no regrets by reccomending this beautiful place for anybody that seeks pure happiness
Cons: That We only had one week at the resort.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: We stayed at Elounda All Suites Hotel for our honeymoon, and in every way our expectations were exceeded. The staff here is AMAZING, and the hotel is gorgeous. We had a junior suite with a pool and beach front access and everything was literally perfect. The temperature of the private pool was just a little bit too cool for us at first, but the manager Manlios took great care of it. The staff did all the big things (and ALL little things) just right. Would 1000000000% recommend to anyone! If you're considering Crete, STAY HERE! We went to another island in Greece but Elounda All Suites was definitely our favorite part of our trip. Thank you to everyone at Elounda for making our honeymoon so special. <3

5,8 Okay
Pros: Nice quiet location and great for relaxation. Rooms were spacious
Cons: Rooms could do with a little updating. A shuttle to Elounda Village would have been much appreciated - the shuttle only goes to the beach club. The pool had an obstructed view of the coast line - in the photos, the private pools from the villas are shown and we expected to main pool would be similar.
9,6 Excellent
Pros: Elounda gulf villas went above and beyond to ensure that we had the most relaxing, comfortable and enjoyable stay in Crete. They are attentive to detail with a constant smile on their face. The location, property and most importantly the staff go far above and beyond what we would ever have expected of them. A fantastic and memorable holiday both from a culinary (their menu is fantastic!) as well as leisurely perspective. Thank you so much to everyone at Elounda gulf villas and hello from Paris! Pieter and Hanna.
Cons: Nothing.
9,6 Excellent
Pros: The staff's service mind was excellent. They were friendly and made sure that we were ok. They even upgraded us and gave us a surprise for our honeymoon with a candle light dinner on our patio for free. The best!
Cons: If you want to be picky. If you like the beach and don't like chilling at the pool, the beach is a 15 minute drive from the hotel. But! They'll help you with a transfer back and forth.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Great location, fantastic view. Villa is very nice with swimming pool and all facilities. Great service from all staff members so all 5 stars (out of 5) but Katarina at the reception and Maria (beach) and Sofia Breakfast) are even 6 stars. Breakfast was superb. We will be back!
Cons: The price of the extra's like the bbq are too high, hence we did not take it.
2,5 Mediocre
Pros: Nothing
Cons: Property was bad for value of money, booking.com has misleading pictures of nice property and infinities pools, but thats for separatw villas, we stayed at suite and there was only one pool for all and not good and no nice view.Beach was 10 min drive and inner sea, not nice at all. Very unhappy with our choice.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: The staff were fantastic, the accommodation and grounds were beautiful. Lovely pool and restaurant. We especially loved the champagne breakfasts and there is so much choice at breakfast - they will cook eggs to order, we enjoyed some lovely omelettes and some crepes with chocolate and strawberries during our stay! We hired a car for the week (which was the same price as the airport transfer quote from the hotel) so we could see more of the local area and drive to some of the beaches. We drove into Elounda and took a boat trip to Spinalonga which was lovely. We had a wonderful stay and would definitely recommend for families as the staff were fantastic with our 9 month old. They would cook him anything we asked for which was brilliant. We would consider coming back to stay in one of the villas as they looked great.
Cons: The only downside with this resort is that food and drink is very expensive here - for example, a £22 bottle of Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc will set you back a whopping €115 which is a little ridiculous! I think the cheapest bottle of wine was about €39. Would recommend the half board option for this reason but you will still have to pay for the drinks. Whilst breakfasts on the HB option were excellent value, the dinners were a bit hit and miss. Dinner is a la carte, not buffet like breakfast so you don’t get as much choice. We had some lovely dishes for dinner, others were not as good and the desserts weren’t great - we ended up having ice cream on three occasions. Overall though, we generally enjoyed the food and I’m sure for those that have a bigger budget, the paid-for a la carte menu was very nice (it should be for the price!). The best thing about dinner was the lovely setting around the pool, the relaxing ambiance with the live music and subtle lighting with the lanterns in the trees. We felt like celebrities and it was so very relaxing, even with a 9 month old making a mess in his highchair! All the staff were fantastic.

Pros: The service was out standing and we were upgraded to a room with a pool. Keep in mind this was in October and the weather was changing and it is a slow time of the year. We ate at the blue door, an outdoor café on the beach and the food was out standing. There breakfast buffet was out standing from Champaign to custom omelets. We also took a short walk to the next town, Plaka, for dinner and it was excellent and right on the beach also.

We enjoyed relaxing in the common areas at night and the staff was always with reach if we needed anything (a drink, an ash tray for my cigars.. you name it they brought it). The concierge even helped us find a Mass to go to on Sunday.
