“Very comfy hotel, great service!”
Reviewed 28 July 2014 via mobile

We visited this hotel in july with my husband and 2 other friends. The location was very good. The hotel was newly renovated and was very clean, modern and comfy. It had everything you need in the room (slippers, toiletries etc.) . The owner was very friendly and helpful. He gave us tips on were to visit and eat. The breakfast was very good. You preorder what yo want and it is all made fresh on the spot!

We would definitely visit again!

We stayed at the Hotel Elounda Garden Suites from 23rd-26th July 2014 and had an amazing stay there! Alex, the manager and owner of the hotel was extremely helpful and kind even by the time I made the booking! He did his best to guide us during our stay in Elounda and inform us on the best spots to visit! The rooms are really great and amazingly clean and the decoration is modern and simple but very cozy which makes you feel relaxed like being at home! There are comfortable beds and soft towels,dressing gowns,slippers, hair dryer, a safe in the closet, soap, shampoo and shower gel that are all provided in the suite. And a big surprise: you arrive tired and there is wine and a bowl of fresh fruit welcoming you in the fridge and make you relax from the first moment you get there! Apart from that the rooms are spacious with a flat screen TV and an excellent wifi around the hotel area! The room is cleaned daily and fresh towels are supplied every day.The pool area is very nice and clean and you get an instant touch of relaxation when you get there for the first time. A must-do at the hotel is definitely the breakfast, which costs 7,5 euros so do not miss it for any reason! You can choose from a menu and create your own unique breakfast which is prepared at that very moment for every guest!
Outside the hotel, there is a small parking area which is very helpful when you have a car. Apart from that the location is excellent, just 2 minutes walk to the centre of the town but away enough to have a calm and peaceful stay! The staff of the hotel were all great and amazingly kind-they even remembered how we drink our coffees! Congratulations to Alex and his team for their great hospitality, friendliness and professionalism! Elounda Garden suites is one of the best hotels we have ever stayed!

A beautiful new complex, a small crew who truely does everything they can to make your stay as relaxed as possible. The owner had a lot of knowledge about the enviroment and is more than happy to give you some tips. Breakfast is great every morning, fresh products and a lot of choice. The hotel does organize a boottrip which was awesome. All together Elounda Garden Suites had a luxurious yet cosy feeling. A little paradise.

We stayed at Elounda Garden Suites in early July and found the whole experience very good, from the friendly staff to the secluded swimming pool to extra little touches throughout the week, such as allowing us to check in after midnight as our plane didn’t land until late.

The hotel is very well-placed in relation to Elounda’s main centre, as it is a two or three minute walk away from the main part of the town but remains very quiet. The rooms are spacious and have more of a feel of apartment than a hotel room, which was made them feel more homely.

The shower was excellent and the air conditioning was a godsend at the height of summer, although our room was well ventilated by virtue of two balconies.

There was a dedicated parking area, which was exceptionally helpful given the narrow streets in some parts of the town.
However, in just a short distance from the hotel there is an excellent traditional Greek taverna off a side street, which was excellent quality and very well-priced.

One of the best hotels we have stayed in from the warm reception to wonderful location.

Well where do I start! From the moment we booked this hotel (direct with Alex the owner) things could not have gone smoother. He arranged a taxi to pick us up, a hire car for a couple of days when we were there as well as choosing the best location suites for us to stay in.
The accomodation is absolutely spotless and is cleaned every day. Comfortable (firmish) beds with lovely crisp cotton sheets and soft fluffy towels. Hair dryer, safe, slippers, dressing gowns (big and fluffy!), soap, shampoo and bath/shower gel are all provided in the suite. A good shower too! On arrival we had chilled white wine, fruit and water in the fridge waiting for us. Wifi and a large flat screen TV is also provided. The pool area is clean, relaxing and just the right temperature. The breakfast is a must and sets you up for the day for only 7.5 Euros.
Katharina and Alex have to be the best hosts there are. They are not intrusive yet are always around if you need help. Absolutely nothing is too much trouble for them. Where else do you find a free cocktail suddenly arrive by your sun lounger?? Katharina was always coming round with little treats that she had been cooking as well. Felipe (Alex's nephew) is also very friendly. An absolute must is to go on one of the boat trips that Alex arranges. Unless you want to go on one of the 'booze cruises' then his is by far the best. There are free drinks the whole way, the friendliest and funniest Capt and food that is amazing (cooked by the Captain's mother!).
Location wise Elounda Garden Suites is perfect. 2 minute walk to the town means that you are close enough to be handy but just that bit out so that it is very peaceful.
If you want something in your suite you only have to ask. We were going to cook one night but Alex suggested that we used their own kitchen so that we could use all their oils, spices, etc rather than have to buy our own! We didn't but the offer was there.
All in all one of the best resorts we have stayed in mainly due to Alex and his fabulous team.

Room Tip: We had rooms 107 and 108. They were ground floor and had a little bit of privacy yet close to pool...

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Did not know what to expect because we had not been to Crete before and had only stayed in hotels before in Corfu. Greece by its own standards do not always match their European counterparts for luxury but what a credit this place is, especially the staff!!! These guys really go out of their way to ensure you settle in and are looked after. We had a free room upgrade for most of our stay and the cleaning is carried out every day!!! Change of towels, bed linen etc. We were provided with free wine, water, fruit on arrival, and had a free bar drink and cake brought to us whilst we were sun bathing - great people! We had a late flight back so they allowed us to keep the room till we left (we did not have to ask - this was offered). This we know they accomodated for all guests where possible because we witnessed this on several occasions during our stay.
They thanked us for the stay and we were given a bottle of wine to take home, as if they had not already done enough.
If you are really expecting top class luxury you may need to try one of the hotels away from town but this place is fab and there is a good feel factor about this resort in regards to how everyone interacts with each other. We even all went on a private boat trip together (highlight of the holiday) which Alex organised. The accomodation is a stones throw from the town but enough to be out of the hustle and bustle - if that's what you can call it because it is lovely and quiet anyway - and what a view!!!!. You cannot see the sea from your balcony (highly recommend the second floor rooms overlooking the pool - 205) but the rooms are really comfortable and spacious and air con is perfect. The rooms are sprayed to help reduce mosquitoes which I had not know before, but how considerate?
If you are planning on making the most of self catering, the kitchenette does not offer all of the amenities required and you are restricted to what you can do (for example no oven or toaster) but if not, this is the place to be. This hotel has not been open that long (refurbished we believe) so Alex and the team were genuinely open to any recommendations mentioned. We noted that someone had asked about a pool side shower and also additional sheltering for the eating area, and within days these were done. We mentioned the toaster and a microwave on departure, and Alex stated that it would be looking at this. It will not surprise me if these have not already been added. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Room Tip: Ask for an upper floor with a pool view - best views.
