"Luxury Elouda Hotel"
Domes of Elounda is a 5 star hotel situated midway between the towns of Elounda and Plaka, overlooking the island of spinalonga. The hotel consists of self contained suites built into the hillside overlooking the beautiful Gulf of Elounda. The main complex, housing, reception, restaurants and bar are linked to the hotels suites via a network of winding roads/pathways. On days when the heat proves too much, the resort can be negotiated by golf carts which can be summoned from ones room or via conveniently located call buttons along the path. The hotel features a private beach, with bar and waterfront restaurant, with helpful and courteous staff always on hand to provide sun beds, towels and refreshments. The food at Domes is excellent, from a delicious and comprehensive breakfast menu to a Michelin starred restaurant for the ultimate in pampering. Staff at the hotel are absolutely faultless and always go the extra mile to ensure that you are made to feel special. My only slight caveat is that the hotel is very child friendly, which will obviously suit many, but during school holidays can be quite noisy if you are a couple looking for a quiet and romantic experience. That said; the hotel does have adult only areas and it certainly didn't detract from our enjoyment during our stay. The town of Elounda is a ten minute taxi ride away and the village of Plaka is within walking distance. Elounda is a truly wonderful gem of a town, featuring some amazing waterfront tavernas. A slight word of caution is that although within walking distance, a lack of pavements and enthusiastic driving by the locals makes the journey fairly precarious, particularly after dark! I would thoroughly recommend the Domes of Elounda to all holiday makers seeking a luxury retreat and consider it to be the nicest hotel I've visited on Crete.
"Perfect week of relaxation at Domes of Elounda"
This is an ideal hotel for a relaxing holiday. It is peaceful and restful. It suits families and couples alike. I went in October and the temperature was ideal, still very hot. The staff were friendly and helpful. What really stood out for me was the spacious size of the suites. What a treat! We had a large balcony with loungers, a hot tub and great views overlooking the sea and the island of Spinalonga. The huge bathroom had both a sunken bath and a separate wet room/shower. The gardens are beautiful and the gardeners really do a great job maintaining them. It was a joy to walk down to breakfast each morning and see all of the pretty flowers.
"That rarity of a great hotel both for kids and for adults!"
We had a fantastic time here, the two of us and our little 1 year old boy. The staff were all very friendly with guests, and also spent time entertaining the little ones - they are all blessed with a lot of patience! We were half board and we're a little wary of the quality of food available with the buffet - however the food was really good, and freshly made (often in front of you). Probably the only issue was the limited wine list available, both in general but also due to the fact that they didnt always have what we asked for. We stayed in a villa which was lovely, with a small outdoor area to ourselves in the evening. The pools are modern and tidy, as is the pool area. We will be going again!
"Honeymoon in Paradise"
This resort is paradise on Earth. From the private pool in our suite to the unbelievable view and the sunsets. The resort is so great, and massive. You have to take the golf cart with the driver to get to the other side, which is amazing as well as the front section of the resort. The staff from the check in to the spa were the friendliest people I have ever come across. The private beach was so relaxing. The Specialty dinners was so fun and the food was delicious. I could not have asked for a better place to spend our Honeymoon. I am an avid Marriott member and this location made me even more impressed with the brand. Great job Domes and Marriott, thank you for an unforgettable honeymoon stay.
"The perfect luxury family holiday"
We holidayed at this gem of a resort last year with our teenage children. On arrival we were upgraded to two beautiful private suites complete with a pool and a jacuzzi. The suites were spacious with great storage space and amenities and we were ideally situated close to the main bar and restaurant complex. The staff at this resort are fantastic and keen to make your holiday truly memorable. We were more than satisfied with the half board buffet restaurant but we took advantage of the extra special A la Carte options too (the Cretan evening at the beach is not to be missed!). Our children loved the many swimming pools and especially the fantastic water sports on offer. We visited nearby Plaka and the amazing leper colony at Spinnalonga. We will definitely return here...
