“Gorgeous with lovely service and warmth”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2014

Our room was one of the nicest we've ever stayed in. We were traveling with our daughter and her rollaway was already in the room when we arrived in the evening. The concierge staff were very helpful and friendly--their restaurant recommendations were perfect (thanks Ria and Louise). The owner made a point of meeting us our first night. And they have a lovely staffed private beach a short drive away.

Just back from a wonderful week in Elounda Gulf Villas. This is a very special place, run in great style by Anna, her family and staff who really care about their customers' experience.

Our 2 bedroom villa (shared by 2 couples) was beautifully decorated, very well equipped, and spotlessly maintained. Spent many enjoyable hours reading in the sun, lounging on our private terrace and swimming in our good sized villa pool. Very comfortable beds with top quality linen ensured a very luxurious night's sleep.

Half-board dining option offered plenty of variety - the 3 course menu changed daily in Argos restaurant - a supplement got you fine dining in Dafni - and you could switch between lunch or dinner. The food itself was delicious - local specialties, fresh seafood, wonderful salads and decadent desserts. The breakfast buffet was superb, abundant with fresh fruit, juices, breads, pastries, meats, cheeses and eggs cooked to order.

The whole resort is very stylish - each villa has it's own character - the bar, restaurants and main pool areas are a masterclass in relaxed elegance. The private beach is small but perfectly formed! The gardens are lush and colorful and the views are spectacular.

Elounda Gulf Villas is perfectly situated for those who wish to explore the island and the staff are really excellent at making recommendations tailored to your interests.

Great care and attention to detail make this a fantastic place to be, but it is the hospitality, professionalism and warmth of all of the staff that really makes it a really stand out destination.

Thank you to Anna and all of the wonderful team at Elounda Gulf Villas.

We have just had yet again another fabulous holiday at the superb Elounda Gulf Villas. We were lucky enough to stay in the lovely Villa Areti which is fitted out very well and has everything you could possibly need (even a washing machine!) The villa is very private and has Fantastic Views looking out over the very blue waters of Mirabella Bay. At Elounda Gulf, the ENTIRE STAFF go out of their way to make your stay as memorable as possible, to say nothing is too much trouble is definitely an understatement! They are the most helpful and friendly people we have ever had the privilege to meet! The food is first class with chefs that will literally cater to your every need! The Family Owners have definitely thought of everything and have spared no expense in making EGV&S a holiday destination that stands out from the rest. We highly recommend a visit and are sure you will not be disappointed! We definitely hope to return.

Stan and Alice. West Sussex.



Most Definitely a Holiday to Remember!

Room Tip: It doesn't matter where you stay as the entire site is superb!

My family just returned from a holiday to Crete and we were extremely fortunate to have stayed at Elounda Gulf Villas & Suites. We had a 2 bedroom suite and it was perfect for a family of 4. The entire staff is amazing, friendly, professional and wonderful to speak to. The suite was beautiful, clean and comfortable. The restaurant was delicious and everything was so fresh! The only negative is that we didn't stay long enough! I would absolutely return to Elounda Gulf Villas & Suites and highly recommend a visit!

We have just returned from our holiday in Crete and were fortunate enough to have stayed in a 1 bedroom villa at Elounda Gulf Villas & Suites.From Check in to check out we found the staff very professional in every way,immediately from opening the door to our suite the view over the private pool down to the sea was simply breathtaking. The rooms were very large and well finished. As well as a full kitchen,gym,steam room and sauna, this Boutique hotel was 5 star in every way. The restaurant quality was also 5 star with a good variety of options from the menu at both their restaurants. We enjoyed our stay so much we are planing to return for our next holiday. A big thank-you to all the staff for creating such a memorable experience.

I have just returned from a fantastic stay at the Elounda Gulf Villas.
Check in was very personal and the staff were extremely friendly, we were checked in and being shown our beautiufl villa within 10 minutes of arriving.
We stayed in Villa Limnes which is a 3 bedroom villa. The infinity pool was amazing and the views out to the sea were incredible. the villa itself is very private we were not overlooked at all. the villa had all modcons such as flatscreen tv/dvd player/air con etc the kitchen facilities if you wanted to make use of were great.
Breakfast is served at the Argo restaurant which is great a very good choice for breakfast. We also dined here one evening and the service and food was good. i partiuclarly enjoyed the Daphni restaurant which offers fine dining. Again service was great.
Check out again ran very smoothly.

Room Tip: Definately pay the extra and treat yourself to a villa

We have just returned having spent four magical nights with friends in the Royal Villa. (16.5.14 - 20.5.14)

We couldn't have stayed anywhere more amazing, the Royal villa has four, double, individually decorated on suite bedrooms and a gym downstairs.
Upstairs is the most fabulous lounge/ dining area with panoramic views and fully equipped kitchen.
The pool area has breathtaking views.
The restaurant is first class with a lovely ambiance. The staff were very friendly and the service fantastic.
We would recommend Elounda Gulf villa's 100% and would rate it 10/10.
Thank you for a fabulous holiday.
