Like most of the reviews on this site, we also found this to be a lovely little hotel. We arrived at midnight and were informed that there was water, fruit and a salad plate in the fridge in our room, which was most welcome. This attention to detail carried on throughout the holiday. The staff are professional and very helpful. The hotel is spotlessly clean. We upgraded to a "bungalow". This is hard to describe but its a row of rooms, set aside from the main hotel, a bottom row with private terraces leading out to the garden at the side of the pool. We were in the "upstairs" row above and had a very large private sun roof with sunbeds, chairs and coffee table. Be aware that Cretan beds are not your usual beds. Ours was a wooden base about a foot high with a mattress on top. The bathroom was small but had a large walk in shower which was great. The hotel has a seawater pool surrounded by sunbeds and an area to have lunch. Breakfast and dinner can be eaten either inside in the air con or outside on the terrace overlooking the pool. The food was plentiful and always fresh, lots to choose from, both at breakfast and dinner. The hotel is about a 25 minute walk from town. We always walked in but got a taxi back which was 5 Euros. If you decide to hire a car while on holiday, there is a good hire car company a few minutes walk down the lane at the side of the hotel. They will deliver the car to the hotel and pick it up at the end of the hire. They are very reasonable and its an all in price, no extras. We had a great holiday at the Elounda Palm.
