"For sports, sand and sea lovers ... a great resort"
The Porto Elounda Golf & Spa Resort is about golf, wellbeing and sport galore. This expansive all-inclusive resort is part of a superbly maintained trio of sister hotels occupying prime real estate on the shores of the Mirabello Gulf. You can check in any time you like, but you may never want to, or ever need to leave. Offering yachts to charter, scuba diving, soccer camp, water sports, tennis, shopping and even church, this is the ultimate one stop resort in Crete. Fitting for families and kids, sporty folk and the plain washed-up, it’s all here in this complete resort.
"The 80's called and asked for the food garnishes back!"
Ok so first the good stuff: the green slopes and the beautiful beach along with two nice pools, that's as pretty as u c in the pics. However, everything else is just bad. Service: terrible. When checking in with 2 kids and a double stroller, the reception manager insisted on placing us at a room with endless staircases leading to it. Even the bellhop helping us with the luggage was having the worst day in the job just getting us there. After endless arguments (mind u the hotel was at least 85 per cent empty!) they moved us to a slightly better located room. At that room, to our astonishment, magic happened whenever u filled up the tub and flushed the toilet simultaneously. By magic I mean the whole bathroom turned into a little pool! Water came out of the draining hole and flooded everything. When they finally sent a technician to fix it, he simply cleaned and explained the flushing/ tub filling thing. Of course they didn't think it was they're job to take a dime off the check cause of this! Food: the. Bad. Poor selection at breakfast even in comparison to other such Greek Islands hotel. We had much nicer food at the lovely town close by. Also, the over priced dinner at the hotel restaurant, was just small portions of local cuisine and my husband who is a foodie hardly touched it. The salad spread that came with dinner resembled the buffets they used to have in the early 80's at bat miztvas and weddings...u know, the ugly little garnishes made out of day old fruit and vegetables. Nothing to write home about. The highlight of the stay for me was when my 3-year-old son fell into the pool and non of the employees around bothered to offer as much as a dry towel or ask for his well being. BTW, they didn't even have a life guard there.... At check out the manager asked if Me to write a nice review here.
"Perfect if you can afford it"
The resort is ideally situated on a slope with a 9-hole golf court down to well protected sandy beaches. The comfortable rooms face the sea, the buffet food is excellent and the personal most friendly, so what more can you wish for a perfect holiday resort : possibly lower nominal prices and more varied background music in restaurants and bars !
Lovely hotel, lovely place,great food lovely acc.EXTORTUNATE Prices.If you have money to burn this is for you. Fancy a ride on jet ski adult and child for 30 minute 250 pound. 25pound each person pedalo Bite for lunch (when they have the food and drink) club sandwich18 pound.Bottle house wine 30 pound.list goes on.We were ripped off a few times blatantly so on the last one I asked to speak to a manager, may as well spoke to the man in the moon. NEVER again I have been a lot of places over the World and great hotel but this was o.t.t.
This resort was so great. We were lucky enough to have a room with a pool. Just waking up and seeing that was so amazing and relaxing, Room was large and very clean. Very comfortable. We ate each day in the main dining room. Lots of choices and very good quality for a buffet. Amazing views. High recommend.
