The accommodation was still excellent (we had a junior suite with a heated pool). However, i agree with previous reviewers in that "It is very expensive for what you get"... More

My husband and I traveled from South Florida, USA to Elounda at the beginning of June. The weather was perfect. We rented a car from Heraklion airport and drove to Elounda. It was an easy drive and we would recommend renting a car and driving up into the mountains to explore during your visit. It should be noted that The... More

I am going to sound like a moaner but honesty is the best policy and I have stayed in some beautiful hotels around the world so am the worst for comparing one against the other!
