Breakfast is plentiful and buffet style and you can eat at the waterfront with lovely views lots of fish etc. The roof top pool and bar are a bonus and it was lovely in the evening to stop for a night cap...

The location of this hotel is good and the rooms are pleasant enough. However a large amount of the rooms are in an annexe in our case we had a ground floor room with no sunlight at all and a viewof the back of some shops. Air conditioning was charged extra aprox £65 pound for 10 days. Beach towels were...

We have just returned from a wonderful stay at this hotel. We had a room with a side sea view which was kept spotlessly clean each and every day. The owners and staff were very pleasant and helpful and a near hiccup was quickly rectified. The breakfasts were fantastic, there really was something for everyone, a choice of continental, cereals,...

Upon arriving at the hotel in the early hours of the morning, we were greeted by what we believe to be the owner (can’t recall his name). Whilst the hotel lobby/reception was visually pleasant enough. It was my sense of smell that was most affronted. In so much as the hotel smelt very strongly of lard/cooking oil. (This also pervaded...

We came here for a week in September, and we left rather disappointed. We paid for what we thought was a superior room, but we were given a room in the annex which over looked a scruffy garden with rubbish strewn around, and a dog that barked for most of the day. The shower leaked and had exposed wires above...

Have been to Elounda several times but first to Akti Olous. Location perfect with short walk into village square with harbour and tavernas, and also to Olous, area of outstanding beauty.

The hotel is in a great position. and could be even better than it's 3 star rating. Our room cleaned every day, by a very friendly staff. There is a great choice at breakfast with everything you could want. This was our fourth visit to the hotel and we would be happy to recommend it to anyone
