We have just returned from a wonderful 10 day holiday at the Elounda Bay Palace. The hotel is in a beautiful setting with lovely landscaped gardens and directly on its own private and peaceful sandy beach. Although we had hired a car to see more of the island, we always came back to the hotel beach afterwards as it was the cleanest and sandiest that we saw anywhere - with the added bonus of free sunbeds and parasols! The food is absolutely fantastic with a huge amount of choice for both breakfast and dinner. The Mountain/Garden View rooms were slightly dated, but were extremely clean with a highly efficient twice daily maid service. We did however catch a glimpse of a Sea View room which appeared to have been more recently refurbished. Having read other reviews before we left, we were slightly concerned at the comments referring to unhelpful staff, but we found this to be entirely the opposite. Every member of staff we came into contact with was friendly and helpful, including the Receptionists, Restaurant Staff, Chefs, Maid Service and Guest Services. The only negative comment that we can agree with is the very high cost of wine and drinks. Although we occasionally had the odd glass of wine at dinner (cheapest house wine was 7 Euros a glass), we generally bought our own wine at the supermarket and drank it on the balcony before/after dinner! The cost of drinks meant the hotel bars very quiet in the evenings as guests either went out or back to their rooms.
We would highly recommend this hotel and had a fantastic holiday - many thanks Elounda Bay!
