Accommodation near Elounda or Agios Nikolaos

Hi I am looking for recommendations for a place to stay not too far from Heraklion for five nights in July. This will be the start of our trip in Greece after a long journey and we will be tired. We have 3 children. Our ideal accommodation would: have comfortable beds, be family friendly, clean and well-maintained, NOT all-inclusive, swimmig pool and beach access and restaurants on premises and relaxing.

We can pay 5-star rates but when I read the reviews I get the distinct impression that the 5-star places are way overpriced. I hate overpaying most of all. We often stay in self-catering villa type places but becaue of our short time here it will be easier for us to just stay at a hotel.

Is there any hotel that people just love? Thanks very much!

My immediate thought was the candia Park hotel


It gets great reviews for families, restaurants on site, has its own beach so would seem to suit your requirements. The only down side is that its located between both Agios and Elounda, so you would need to either catch a bus into either town or taxi. There is a bus stop at the top of the drive where you can catch a bus into either Agios or Elounda. (approx 5 mins drive into either Elounda or Agios)

Another alternative would be the Mirabello Hotel, which is walking distance into Agios (30 mins flat safe walk for the children) firstchoice.co.uk/holidays/…

So have a look at both these and see what you think, transfer time from the airport is approximately 50 mins by taxi or car, coach transfer may take longer depending on how many drop off they have.

Heres a general link to the area for your information:
