We have visited the Elounda Mare on several occasions now and have never been disappointed. The staff, the accommodation, the beach all faultless. As always the only issue was that we couldn't stay longer!

We chose here to get married/honeymoon due to the gorgeous grounds and amazing views. We were not disappointed, even better than all the pictures! Julie the wedding coordinator was brilliant and made everything so easy for us, took all the hard work and stress out of it so I never got nervous or worried at all! All the staff were...

So peaceful, salt water pool, private beach, lovely people, just amazing. I went with my brother, Mother and Father and it was definitely what you pay for. The restaurants are a little on the expensive side, but you can eat out on a 10 minute trip to the little Elounda square - would recommend Paradosiako especially if you want quick,...

After being extremely disappointed with the Blue Palace. I contacted the Elounda Mare for a room for my 3 night stay. I had stayed here in the past when I was 16 on a family trip to Greece. I asked for a bungalow with a private pool. I managed to book the last one they had and was given 300...

My husband, 5 year old daughter and I stayed at the hotel during the last week of July/first week in August. It was our second visit, having already stayed there the same time last year. Many members of staff remembered us from last year. Reception staff made a special effort remembering our daughters name and kept asking her how she...

This is the standard by which all hotels should be judged. We've stayed here 5 times over the past 18 years (I thought it was 4 times, but the hotel said it was 5 times), and each time it has been perfect. The staff are briefed in advance and know when a guest returns, they know what rooms you like...

Spent a wonderful week at Elounda Mare. Everything about the hotel was wonderful, food, suite, the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. I would recommend this for couples looking for a relaxing break in beautiful settings.

This was a repeat visit to Elounda and the Elounda Mare. There are several 5-star properties in Elounda, but this is la creme de la creme. The luxury is understated but ever-present. The real thing that sets this resort apart from the rest is the unparalleled service. From our greeting when we arrived, complete with a glass of champagne and...

Elounda Mare is a great choice if you're staying in Crete. The rooms are lovely, the views terrific, and the service top notch. We also really enjoyed the included breakfast. It's clear that the staff really cares about the guests and will do whatever it takes to give you a great stay. It's also an easy walk to the nearby...
