First the bad news – BUT NOTHING TO DO WITH THE HOTEL - transfer time to/from Heraklion Airport averages around 2 hours despite Thomsons assertion it takes 80 mins. The airport itself is hopelessly outdated and struggles to cope with the volume of passengers. On arrival it took almost 3 hours from landing to reach our hotel and on our...

The staff made our holiday at the Elounda Village. Yes the food was fine and varied and the setting pretty with reasonably good sound proofing in the rooms, but it was the attitude of helpfulness and courtesy extended in particular to my very elderly mother that made our holiday here a wonderful experience. Out exploring by car (recommended) everyday we...

Adults only hotel = bliss! We booked a bungalow on way to the beach/pool area. Although we didn't pay for a sea view, we had one. We don't swim or sunbathe and spent every other day in the shade on our outside area, reading. The food was excellent, loads of choice for breakfast and in the evening. Were glad we...

Was a little worried by previous reviews, they must have been in a different place to me. The rooms were very very clean, the maid mopped right through at least twice in the week we were there. Everything spotless, gardens and scenery spectacular. The in house singers were tip to,and the in house entertainer had activities on during the day...

This was not a 5 star experience - From the outset, transfer took nearly 2.5hrs due to the too many drop-offs the coach had to do.... Arrived early hours of the morning, we were shown to room (717) as we paid the extra for sea view bungalow, once we woke in the morning, to be frank - what a disgusting...

I was a bit anxious after initially reading some negative reviews when I booked this holiday in January. However I needn't have been. It is a beautiful hotel. Interesting building style, pretty grounds, felt small and personal due to the layout and the staff were delightful. On half board we never felt bored by the range of food on offer...

Everything about the hotel was exceptional ... High standard of food, service, accommodation, facilities - particularly the fact it is an adult only experience .... (Plus 21) ...

We have just returned to the UK from an 11 day break at the Aquila Elounda Village Hotel. This hotel is truly 5 star! The accommodation is excellent, spacious, very well maintained and quiet (although I would recommend one requests an upper floor "bungalow" unless you don't mind the clip-clop of high heels on the tiled floor above!!) We had...

I am currently sitting in the bar at the Elounda Village and it's everything you could want in a holiday! From the moment we arrived (at 1am) we were made welcome, nothing was too much trouble for the staff. We were driven to our room on a golf buggy, the room was spacious and very clean. There was a bottle...
