The Elounda Residence Hotel is the ideal place to relax with family, away from the bustle of the resorts on the north coast of the island. In addition, guests receive a warm welcome and the atmosphere is family-friendly. Although the hotel is far from the centre of Elounda and its beaches, the view is amazing.

    Location 9.97 /10

    The hotel is set between sea and mountain, in the hills of Elounda. You will have to climb a few miles before reaching the Elounda Residence Hotel. It is just a few minutes drive from the town of Elounda, on the northeast coast of the island. It affords beautiful views of Elounda Bay and of the Spinalonga peninsula. Around the hotel, you will find only countryside, olive trees fields and sheep. People come here for the peace and quiet.

    Accommodation 7.30 /10

    The Elounda Residence Hotel has 90 apartments and 7 villas. All feature the same simple, old fashioned but still pleasant design. The villas have 2 or 3 bedrooms, a kitchenette (electric stove, microwave, refrigerator), a lounge-dining room and a private terrace with a private pool. The decor is a bit old, but you'll feel at home. What's more, tranquility reigns supreme here. Ideal for a holiday away from the hotel clubs of the seaside resorts on the north coast of the island. All of the apartments and villas are equipped with a TV, telephone, safe, free Wi-Fi and air-conditioning.

    Overview 7.35 /10

    The Elounda Residence is a family hotel, with a very welcoming atmosphere. Once you've made it up the steps to the actual hotel, you will find yourself in an open space in the countryside overlooking the sea. The reception is located on this level. You can cool off with a drink at the bar with a terrace and a view of sea and mountains. The decor is rustic and rural but pleasant. The pool is just off to the side. It overlooks the entire surrounding countryside and also affords a breathtaking view of the sea. Children can have fun playing on the pool toboggan. This entire bar, terrace and pool area is new. The sun lounge will become the ideal place for an instant tan. Light entertainment is run during the week (Greek dancing courses, barbecue evenings, etc.). Not far from the pool there is a small supermarket. Useful when you run out of sunscreen or toothpaste.
    Children can also play in the games room or at the kid's club which is open during the summer.
    For a spot of relaxation, head to the beauty centre for a massage. The masseuse has magic fingers. Facial and body treatments are also available, as well as manicures and pedicures. Then, enjoy some quiet time in the Jacuzzi.
    Note that the hotel has its own chapel for weddings.

      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.
