of TripAdvisor Travelers recommend this hotel
We actually came to this hotel back in October due to winning a competition through Powder Byrne but the app won't let me go back this far. We had an awesome stay at this beautiful hotel. Every staff member was so friendly and welcoming. The food was amazing and the Italian restaurant by the beach was amazing served with lovely wine recommendations. The spa was phenomenal and after visiting this hotel my girlfriend puts up a huge fuss and compares every hotel to this amazing place. That's Porto Elounda for a lovely stay and I promise we will be back.
"Lovely stay, great staff"
Room was amazing, great view and private pool. Staff were really helpful and friendly. Easy walk into Elounda (about 30 mins) and only €8 each way in a taxi if you don't want to walk. Lovely beach. Food just ok, I would head into the cheaper and better restaurants in town but breakfast was good with lots of choice. We hired bikes and they were great- brand new with new helmets and locks, very safe. We also enjoyed great massages at the spa, facilities are lovely. One thing, sunloungers are terrible. Not comfortable to lie on at all and when everything else is so good this is a real shame. Hard to relax when the lounger is giving you backache! Overall great and would recommend both the hotel and Elounda in general for a relaxing break in the sun.
absolutely perfect resort for our honeymoon, the staff are very professional and seemed that nothing is to much to ask the private beach was amazing and in October it was 30 degrees Celsius + every day and in the 20s at night the food was great from the hotel, but was quite expensive the resort has everything you need shops etc. if you cant find what you need the village is 10 mins walk from the hotel.
"enjoyed our stay"
We stayed at the Porto Elounda back in July for 10 days with our 2 children (9 and 12). Lovely welcome on arrival. Our room was also very nice with one double bed, a single and a collapsible bed for the kids. I have to say that the collapsible bed was horrendously uncomfortable even for my child who would generally sleep anywhere and we had to request new pillows for everyone as they were also very uncomfortable, having said that the hotel responded well and did their best to improve the situation for us. Other than that we didn't really have any other issues. The staff are all very nice and the food in all the restaurants was of a good standard. The only other thing that i found a bit disappointing (and only because we are used to more) was the fact that there was only one main pool and a very small children's paddling pool. The beach, although only a stones throw away isn't very big, so if you are a beach lover however it doesn't get crowded. We just used it to have a paddle and a swim and then went back to the loungers as they are so close by. Our son really enjoyed the football academy and as neither of our kids are into kids clubs it was a great way for him to meet some kids of similar ages, although it is quite costly at 30 Euros an hour. All in all we had a pleasant holiday, Crete is a beautiful island!
"Great hotel and holiday"
We had a great week in this hotel.Although our room didnt have its own pool, most rooms did, although I presume you pay more for one of these. It is about a 6 minute walk to the beach where the hotel pool is, which hardly any uses as they all have their own ! The food was exceptional. A choice of 9 mains every evening, always different each evening and you could have as many and as much as you like. The puddings were even nicer.Breakfast was just as good with a nice choice of fruit, yoghurt or fried ! The par 3 , 9 hole golf course was great but 20 Euros to hire clubs and 20 Eros to play was expensive.They also had a tennis court. Drinks were pretty expensive in the hotel so we had water with our meals and went to the supermarket that was only 100m away and bought coke, beer and wine there for our room.The rooms were nice, maid service about 3 times a day and a fridge which was handy with complementary water everyday. Service everywhere was fantastic.All rooms had a balcony with great views. spinalonga and the semi submarine in Agios Nikolos are well worth visits.
