Beaches of various sizes, plenty of bars, and restaurants dot the site, with various cuisines - Greek, Italian, Oriental. There are various facilities for children. The only oddity was the dodgy wifi which didn't work well... More

Over 37 years we have gradually upgraded from other hotels in Crete and have consistently stayed at the Beach Hotel since 1998 because it is just exceptional, and keeps getting better.

I had over thirty years to visit this hotel. I could not believe the improvements. More modern without loosing the character that made it one of the best hotels not only in Greece but worldwide also. I enjoyed thoroughly every minute of my visit and i recomend it with open heart to all.

There is nothing in the world like the Elounda Beach Hotel in Crete.
