Having been in Travel/Aviation for 47 years I have travelled the World and stayed in thousands of accommodations. I have to say very few compare with this fantastic Hotel in Elounda, Crete. It is mainly due to the lovely people who work there. From the attentive and thorough Maid service through to Dimitri and Costa attending to all needs and...

We have very much enjoyed our stay (lovely views, nice staff, beautiful location) but we were quite disappointed with the quality and variety of the food and also, with the spec of the room that was given to us. The pictures on the...

We stayed here for our honeymoon end of Sept and had the best 10 days. Elounda llion is a lovely hotel with friendly staff and a lovely layout, good access to other towns.

We loved this holiday because the location was stunning, the hotel was laid out so well, it was not a large imposing building, but lots of smaller units and the whole area beautifully landscaped. The staff were amazing. Nicos, Albert and Dmitri to name but three, were just so friendly and looked after us so well. The apartment was spotlessly...
