Hotel is in a great location with its own little stretch of beach, which was lovely. There is also a roof top pool and a bar, it has wonderful views across Elounda which is stunning with the mountains and blue/ green ocean. The hotel is a little dated if I'm honest but it is kept very clean and was comfortable....

Having never been to Crete and knowing one of the aims of the visit was to go to Spinalonga we decided to say in Elounda. The Akti Olous is superbly situated on the sea front approximately 5 minutes from the main square with bars and tavernas even closer.

Stayed for 10 days in June. Our hotel room was quite small but very clean, we had a small balcony that overlooked the side of the hotel which wasnt a view at all but perfectly acceptable. Breakfast was nice but the best thing was that you could sit on the pontoon outside and watch the fish. The hotel when we...
