Good clean basic accommodation. Comfortable bed. No views of note from side balconies. Best rooms to front looking out over water to island & town but this costs extra! Plenty good choice at breakfast but hot food not very hot. Within easy walk of all amenities.

We normally choose a self catering apartment in Greece to enable us to enjoy both the evening and lunchtime taverna experience. This very pleasant small hotel offers bed & breakfast for less than the price of many studios and is so well positioned that we spent 2 weeks there in September/October 2013 returning for the same fortnight in 2014.

Stayed here in August 2014 for one week, we were given a lovely front facing room and the views were superb. The hotel was clean throughout and the food was good. Limited space around the pool area and the small beach area. Staff friendly and helpful.

First time in Crete and we had a fabulous trip. It started badly as the transfer time from the airport is horrific. If I was to return to Elounda I would get a taxi from the airport.

Stayed for one week in early October. Hotel very good value. We booked direct with the hotel and were upgraded from a garden view to a sea view room, and the air-con and safe were included.
