My wife and I have just returned from the Elounda Blu hotel.....all inclusive 2 weeks.. The food, restauant & bar service, cleanliness, and desk assistance was in our opinion 5*. Our room was No 318, with balcony & had perfect views of Spinalonga Island.....a treat each morning as you open the curtains! The hotel has it's own man-made shingle beach with walk-boards, fixed thatched sun shades, good sunbeds and bar service for drinks & snacks. Pool area very good with adequate sunbeds/parasols and again a good bar service. The buffet food was excellent - breakfast, lunch & dinner - all hot and varied. The Asian restaurant is also worth a visit - book a time slot at reception - food is cooked to order, and is very good. The hotel is adult only, and you need to be able to walk up & down steep slopes & steps.....not too bad up to 3rd level, but there are 5 levels....not for the faint hearted.
Local bus services to/from Plaka & Elounda/Aghios Niklas excellent & cheap. We so enjoyed our 2 weeks here, as all of the staff and management were efficient, very friendly and helpful.....we shall definitely be going back to the Elounda Blu.
