Every aspect of the hotel and its staff were just brilliant. We travelled with a five year old and 10 month old, the staff were amazing (especially in the restaurant), making us feel welcome and valued! The food was amazing, the pool area clean. All in all this made for a perfect family holiday, we plan on returning in 2017!

We have just returned from a week at Elounda Ilion Hotel and although it ticks a lot of boxes, it also lacks quite a few too. On arrival, we were shown our 'Superior sea-view bungalow' which we questioned to the receptionist who was showing us the room. It looked different from the photos we had seen on trip advisor showing...

The hotel has a hillside location, 2km out of the centre of Elounda. This gives superb views and a relaxed, quiet atmosphere. The staff moved us, to a room with a full sea view from the balcony, at our request on arrival.They were very helpful throughout our week long stay in all departments and are the key to success for...

We came to the Ilion for a week in early October, we arrived late at night and were greeted by a warm and helpful night receptionist. The entrance to the Ilion is on a narrow road which then leads up a steep hill to reception. Once we arrived at reception, the receptionist took our bags to put in his car,...

Fantastic views across bay to coastlines and islands. Well run hotel at sensible prices with plenty of good food, public rooms and clean bedrooms, plus great pool area and situation. Just need a hire car or local reasonably priced and good taxi largely to get anywhere - local buses found unreliable and at least hourly.

Not sure if they upgraded us unbeknown to us but the room we stayed in was actually an apartment with a large sitting area and two balconies. The pool is really nice although we never managed to get a sun bed. The breakfast buffet was large and very good. Staff are very friendly and helpful with booking tours and transport.
