    Good 6.0
    Family friendly resort
    This was our first time in Elounda so we were excited about our upcoming stay. This is a resort hotel and yes it's a beautiful place just not for us. It's more of a family resort as there's nothing for couple's like us not traveling w children to do. If you choose their included dinner buffet there are kids running around everywhere. If you rather go to their other restaurants instead of the buffet you get 30 euros credit each but reservations are a most. We tried that & I can tell you that they are not needed, the restaurant was empty as most guest go to the buffet. At the Japanese restaurant the 60 euros credit you get doesn't get you much plates are very small and quite pricey. We asked if there was a town nearby with restaurants and hopefully other things for us to do but they don't reccomend it. Of course they rather keep you in the resort. Thankfully we went anyway and just a 10 min drive we found what was a great little fishing village, great restaurants and cute shops!! There also is the town of Agios Nickolos about a 30 min drive much bigger a lot more restaurants and shops. Agian I'm not saying it's bad all I'm saying is that it's a family resort, very quite and I don't reccomend it for couples. We would have much rather stayed in town and the restaurant "The Ferryman" that was reccomended by local shop owners did not disappoint!!

    Exceptional 10.0
    Grand resort, superb amenities, yet a bit oldish
    At first, we got a room with a non working AC and it took too much time (almost 24 hours) until they agreed to change our room. This was a bad start to our vacation. However, after that everything was really great! The private beach is out of this world! The pools and restaurants are great as well as all other public areas. A grand hotel indeed! The decor is a bit oldish for our taste but then again, nothing that you can’t see in the pictures when making a reservation, so no surprise in that

    The property is great. I was told that we will receive a $100 spa credit but was told at the property it is $50.00 for two services. The refused to honor it. We did request a wake up call and they never called.
