We stayed here for a week in September as first timers to Elounda. We stayed in a ground floor room looking out onto olive trees. Previous reviews have complained about this but I thought it quite nice, the area is actually someone else's back garden so their dog is often mouching about it doesn't seem to bother and never barked...

Stayed here in Sept for a 2 week holiday in the sun. The hotel was a small family hotel and recently refurbished. The rooms and balconies are on the small side, but adequate considering you spend most of your time outside in the lovely weather. Very clean, with regular fresh towels and sheets with a kettle and fridge in the... More

We loved the fredom of this little hotel, right on the water front with its own beach. The pool is on the roof top, and is usually colder than the sea! As if was at seasons end we opted for half board. Obviously this in nothing like the a la carte, but was good and wholesome never the less, with... More

Lovely hotel in very good location about 10 minute walk into Elounda harbour. Spotlessly clean with very good facilities in the room which we could not fault. We had a room in the rear annexe on the 4th floor with a side sea view looking towards Spinalonga. The food at breakfast was very good with lots of choice and it... More

We enjoyed our stay here. The hotel is very modern and immaculately clean. The outlook towards Spinalonga is absolutely stunning. We were in room 117 which had gorgeous views towards the sea, however the noise from reception drifted straight up into our room until quite late during the evening. We ended up buying air conditioning which we didn't really need... More

Not going to say much about this place other than if you are staying here for the first time expect a poor service. The review below 'Book with caution' could not sum up our experience more closely especially the receptionist with the glasses. If you get room 106 complain you will be looking out onto old gas canisters and dog... More

This is our fourteenth visit to this lovely hotel in six years and we have seen it blossom in that time with all the hard work from the staff. Located by a small shingle beach with waterfront access the hotel has benefitted greatly from en suite showers in all the rooms, free wi fi, modern fittings, flat screen televisions etc... More
