Ranked #20 of 35 Hotels in Elounda
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 September 2012

Nice and very clean room. Traditional style although kind of minimal. No unnecessary stuff. Quite and piece, very friendly and decreet personnel taking very good care of everything. The location is perfect. Offers fabulous Spinalonga Island view. The beach in a front of the hotel is nice and quiet. If you look for trendy and sandy one - its definitely not your choice - otherwise is perfect. Finally the Cretan buffet offered by the hotel (for only 14 Euro per person) is a real experience. Definitely worth each euro spent. highly recommended.

Room Tip: room 317 is just gorgous

This is a fairly basic hotel, but pleasant and homely, everything is fresh, clean and comfortable. I liked the calm, clear colours in the room, that with the gorgeous sea and mountain views means you can really put your mind at rest. Because the hotel is at the edge of Elounda village, it's peaceful and feels like being in the countryside.

At the same time the town with plenty of restaurants, bars and shops is close by. There's a lovely tree-lined seaside promenade into it, about 15-20mins walk, or there's a good local bus and taxi service.

(The hotel has just been renovated over the past few months and I believe under new management as of this year).

The hotel is fairly small so if you don't like all those massive resorts and to be surrounded by hordes of other tourists then this is for you! Staff are genuine, friendly and helpful. All the facilities are in good condition and service works fine. (Contrary to some of the other reviews here, my room was cleaned every day and fresh towels provided; air-conditioning also worked just fine, and that was in hot weather around +30C). The hotel serves a delicious home-cooked buffet dinner in the evening (at extra cost), with a variety of local foods.

The hotel has its own little beach, or there are two public beaches, with a bar, on either side.

I'm not a great budget traveller but would warmly recommend Selena hotel. Didn't feel I had a budget experience but the most relaxing holiday ever!

I stayed a couple of nights during for short visit to Elounda area. Actually the hotel is more close to Plaka village, a small finding village opposite Spinalonga island. The hotel location is convenient, offering a breathless unobstructed view to Spinalonga island and the gulf of Elounda. You can go to the nearest beach (Ipanema) on foot, less that 3 mins.

However, the rooms are really old and need desperate refurnising. Windows and doors don't shut properly letting air in. Air conditioning is really poor and the unit is insufficient to properly cool down the room. The toilet is really old, with uncomfortable bath tub and the overall impression is a bit filthy.

I would suggest definitely this hotel to anyone with limited budget who wants to visit the area and cannot afford the numerous 5 star hotels.
