We stayed at Akti Olous for 7 days in June with friends on a b&b basis. The rooms were adequate, although I understand there were better ones than those we had. We travelled with Lowcostholidays. Difficult to have a shower without flooding the bathroom. However everything else was great. Good varied breakfast, and evening meals were good if you chose...

Have been to Elounda many times over the past 10 years but this was the first time in akti olous. The staff were extremely pleasant and helpful with a good sense of humour. The room we were in was small with limited storage but as we didn't spend much time in there wasn't to much of a problem. The food...

Just spent a lovely week at this hotel. It is in a lovely location, perfect for what we wanted (just a relaxing weeks holiday) with a great view. Loved having our breakfast on the beach each morning, very peaceful. Plenty to choose from and a different variation each day. Rooms were very clean and included a fridge, kettle and cups....

This is a really good hotel and it's position is just fantastic - from the roof top bar you can see the whole of Elounda bay, the island of Spinalonga, and the bay of Mirabello. Stunning views! You only have to step a few feet from the hotel lobby to be standing in the sea. Meals are served indoors or...

We have visited this outstanding three star hotel eleven times in four and a half years and consider it our second home. The location, friendly staff, cleanliness and quality are those that a higher graded hotel would wish to aspire to in our opinion. Located in a quiet spot about ten minutes walk from the lovely centre of Elounda, the...

We spent a week here in May and were delighted with the position of the hotel as the centre of the town with all the bars and tavernas were within easy walking distance.

Thank you so much for a delightful holiday. The hotel was spotlessly clean, bright and cheerful. The staff without exception were friendly, happy and helpful, especially Cloe and Ivan who looked after our needs at breakfast and throughout the day. Perfectly located on the sea front and a short stroll into the village with many excellent restaurants. A small hotel...
