Your impression of this hotel will depend very much on which room you are allocated on arrival. We were given Room 108 which, to be honest, was not good. The bathroom was tiny and the shower curtain simply didn't function so when we took a shower the bathroom flooded. The biggest disappointment was the balcony/terrace which was also tiny (not enough room for two people to sit on the chairs with the table between them!!) and which looked over a messy piece of land and no view. We asked to move and the management arranged this very quickly and put us in a much nicer room, but that doesn't alter the fact that someone will always have to stay in that room.
Everything else, though, was really good. Breakfast on the jetty was just lovely, and we really loved the rooftop pool and Skybar where the service and cocktails were faultless. The hotel was right by the sea, in a lovely spot, surrounded by some lovely restaurants and bars, and within a short walk of the centre of Elounda. If you get a good room, you'll love it. And if you don't get a good room, make sure you get moved, and you'll still love it!
