We have just returned from a one week, all inclusive, holiday staying at the Elounda Residence. Firstly the positives - the staff, who to a man (and woman!) did a fantastic job of making us feel we were on a relaxing holiday. Special mentions go to George (the elder) for his great waiter service and fantastic dancing on the Greek...

Had one of our best holiday s yet at the elounda residence. The views far outweighed the hike up the hill from the town. Food was very good and the staff in the restaurant were really friendly. Phillipa was especially helpful at reception. Fellow guests obviously found the ambience catching and mixed well.

This hotel was such a mixed bag! On the whole, my friend and I had a really lovely time. The views from our room and the pool and bar are stunning! The staff are hospitable, lovely and fun! The pool is gorgeous and it is quiet and very relaxing. The rooms are not so good at all. Our first apartment...

Just back from a week in Elounda Residence - refreshed and batteries recharged!! The Hotel is situated on a substantial hill so not for people with limited mobility. Everything you need is here - good sized pool, bar, small gift shop and taverna (not included if 'all inclusive') Great walk down into Elounda for more shops, bars and restaurants. Or...

Spent a week there in 2014. It is located on the hill and has the best view of the sea and surroundings that no sea front hotel can boast! In fact it is even better than at special view points. It is very easy to get to the beach by using the hotel van that departs 4 times a day...
