    Location 7.0 /10

    The Elounda Palm hotel is located 1 mile from the village of Elounda, 4.5 miles from Aghios Nikolaos. Heraklion airport is 40 miles away. Count about one hour for transfers.

    Accommodation 7.50 /10

    The 42 rooms are spacious. The colours and decor vaguely evoke traditional Cretan interiors. The room is pleasant and fresh, and opens onto a large patio with sea view. Comfort is Spartan but, for an additional fee, you can enjoy air conditioning, refrigerator, and safe. All rooms have a telephone with direct international access. The bathroom features a sink, shower, and toilets. Last, please note that the hotel also offers 21 studios with kitchenettes.

    Overview 7.00 /10

    Built in 1989, the Elounda Palm is a very simple two-storey hotel. Here, the common areas are functional and minimal: A small lobby and elevated bar, open when the weather is bad. Outside, the grounds are not without charm: the warm tones of the walls tend to cover the concrete of the buildings, and the swimming pool area is lined with green bushes. The seawater pool (2,152 feet²) and the children's pool are surrounded by a tiled solarium with a few deckchairs, parasols, and patio chairs.

    Food and drink 7.45 /10

    The hotel's restaurant is located near the pool. It is composed of a closed room, with buffets and a few tables, and a large terrace under a pergola. Even though dining outside is very pleasant when the wheather is nice, the place has much less charm when it rains or in cold weather. The restaurant is open for breakfast and dinner. The gastronomy is very basic, with a limited choice of local specialities and international dishes. You can have lunch at the pool snack bar, that offers a rather large choice of dishes (salads, omelettes, pizzas, meat dishes, pasta, specialities, sandwiches, etc.). Count between 5 and 7 pounds for one course and a drink.

    Beach

    The Crystal hotel has no private beach. To swim, you have to go to the Elounda public beach (less than 1 mile, or a 15-minute walk). A bus stopping by the hotel will take you there. It is a long beach of fine sand, with deckchairs and parasols on its entire surface (1.5 pounds/day). Additionally, the beach is equipped with showers, toilets, and changing rooms. For sports, choice is very limited: when we visited, only pedalos and ringos were offered to holidaymakers. The environment is far from idyllic, and the windmill replica at one end of the beach cannot compensate the nuisance of numerous coaches unloading crowds of tourists on their way to the Spinalonga peninsula daily. If you prefer a quieter setting, you can always go to the small rock beach, across from the Elounda Ilion hotel (10-minute walk).

    To know

    The rooms on the ground floor have a patio that offers no privacy whatsoever, since they open directly onto those of the neighbours. Request a room on the 1st or 2nd floor.

        d'emblée la situation est moyenne sur la colline à 1,5 km d'Elounda pas d'acces a la plage mais l'hotel est ageable bijou dans un ecrin de verdure avec piscine d'eau de mer . Chambre assez vaste et belle Restauration bonne surtout les petits dejeuners service agreable propreté aussi .Possibilite de petit dejeuner et diner sur la terrasse a cote de la piscine.et le charme preservé d"Elounda loin de l'agitation balearesque de Hersonissos ou Malia.

      The very exclusive Elounda Peninsula stands above the bay and overlooks the sea and the surrounding hotels, offering a personalised service, privacy and peaceful surroundings, with 'luxury' and 'elegance' being the key words to describe the hotel and the service it provides. A clearly beautiful establishment, it is particularly ideal for couples and those who like fine dining, as the hotel also boasts the finest restaurant in Crete.

      This luxury hotel is nicely tucked away on a hillside overlooking the sea, but getting to the beach is certainly no picnic. However, total privacy is guaranteed, both in the rooms, around their private swimming pools and in any of the uniquely designed luxury villas. As the communal areas are kept to a minimum, this is a good place to visit for a completely independent holiday.

      This luxury palace will take you on a heavenly journey. Located in the Eastern part of Crete, near the small and picturesque fishing village of Elounda, it offers an exceptional view with Spinalonga Island as a centre piece. The services offered are backed up by solid infrastructures: numerous and varied restaurants, a plethora of private pools, a magnificent spa and a beach, which, despite the pebbles, does not lack character.
