The hotel has the most fantastic views of the Elounda Bay. Nice pool. The food is not great. Would recommend going to Elounda for food. Staff are very helpful and happy to recommend - nothing they recommended was bad.

We had had a pretty hectic year so we decided that instead of our usual travelling about we would stay in one place and recuperate. I was also looking for a place where there would be not...

We have just returned from a 11 night stay at this lovely hotel. All the staff were really attentive and friendly , especially Albert and the charming Nikos at the pool bar.

We stayed at the Elounda Ilion Hotel between the 8th and 15th of July. Our room was number 22, with sea view and very near to the pool and bar. We had such a lovely holiday, and were really happy with our choice of hotel. It's a fairly small complex, which looks out onto a brilliant view of the sea....
