I stayed here with a friend in September 2016 and delayed my review whilst I waited to hear why Thomson state on their website that all rooms are superior rooms. With this in mind and not being fussed about a sea view I saw no reason to pay a supplement, and indeed I am sure there was no facility to...

We visited Elounda Bay Palace a week in late September/early October and had a very good and relaxing vacation. The staff and service were excellent all the way through; from the booking (which we did on their homepage) and subsequent contacts with the guest relations manager, to our departure with a late check-out. Even though you expect that from a...

Stayed here for 10 days in October. As soon as we arrived, someone came out from reception to greet us, took us inside while instructing someone else to deal with our luggage, gave us a welcome drink while we filled out the arrival form, told us about the hotel, took us to our room, and shown us around the room....

Arrived at this beautiful resort and was greeted by a friendly and enthusiastic lady from the reception. After we had booked she definitely lost interest when she realized we were in the cheapest room type and probably had limited funds (actually not true but I like a bargain if I can find one).
