This was best vacation ever!!!

10/10 Exceptional

This was our second visit to the property, which is the best evidence of a wonderful hotel that we would return. Both times, we spent 10 days there. The room was spacious and well-appointed. We had a private pool, which a number of rooms have. This was lovely for an early morning or late swim, but also for use during the day as we had a sun deck too. There are three restaurants, two bars (one at the beach, one in the hotel complex) so were never at a loss for food when we wanted to eat. We had half board, and the snacks in the bar restaurants always sufficed for a late lunch if we wanted it. The main restaurant had an incredible choice of food, and the special restaurants (one overlooking the ocean) were nice and at no extra charge for certain items on the menu (which were always enough for us to be very happy). The staff were universally helpful and spoke excellent English. By the end of our time, the waiters in the restaurants and bars knew our preferences, and made us feel at home. (Some had been there the year prior when we were there.) Overall, a place we will go back to again and again.

8/10 Very good

All inclusive is nice, but having to book 30 minutes at the gym through an app is ridiculous when you have 100 people sitting next to each other at the buffet. COVID rules are so ridiculous at this point.

10/10 Exceptional

This resort is absolutely stunning, the whole thing is well thought out, the beach is lovely even though there isn't actually your traditional sandy beach, it is great for snorkelling (we saw cuttlefish, eels and loads of fish). We loved that the suba shop was actually on the lot too. Water sports were very overpriced though so we didn't use that. The food and drink is very expensive within the hotel though if you aren't all inclusive, I think even if you are, there are still a lot of additional charges. The massages were a lovely experience, but again, expensive. Elounda, the nearest village is lovely, but the village along from there - Plaka is even better! Closer to Spinalonga as well if you want to visit for a day trip.

Great stay at Elounda Village
Excellent service and very quality and good selection of food and drink on the Premium All Inclusive Plan. Special mention to Mirabello! We had a small problem with the ladder into the private pool. We spoke to the staff and it was fixed in a couple of hours! Also it will work out expensive if you are not on the "all inclusive" rate Staff really friendly and nothing too much trouble. Only issues; its a long way from Elounda (4KM) and as usual some people love to "towel claim" sunbeds but that's not really something the hotel can control. All in all excellent

I can't say enough about this property and the staff. Everything was well beyond what we expected. From being greeted so kindly upon arrival, to the staff that explained the properties many amenities. One person that stood out and had an abundance of energy was Zoe, we participated in many events that she coordinated. The food never disappointed and we never were left hungry, many different options and one thing that you can't pass up is Greek night. Excellent variety of local foods and can't forget the Raki. We will definitely be back.

4/10 Fair

Disappointed with our stay here, and very rarely give bad reviews. Setting of the hotel is beautiful and facilities are good but we were disappointed with the service particularly from the reception staff who were confrontational when we had a misunderstanding about our transfer. It set out stay off negatively and we felt the general service and quality of food (particularly the buffet) was far from 5*. We weren’t informed how services in the hotel worked upon arrival and all this ruined what could have been a lovely stay

8/10 Very good

Beautiful location, disappointing service.
Beautiful spot but service and food doe not meet expectation of a 5 stars resort, no class. Mineral water should be free of charge no matter if you book all inclusive or not.

10/10 Exceptional

Lovely resort. We visited during the summer (2021) when travelling began again, and were pleasantly surprised at how wonderful the resort was. The food buffets at breakfast and dinner provided lots of options and changed each day (we were there for 10 days, and never tired of it). The staff were very friendly and always helpful. We had a room with a private pool (we saw that there were many of these rooms in the resort), and this was so nice: the pool was clean (as was our room, which was cleaned each day). The bar was nice, both outside (where the view over the water was great) and inside (when we needed air-conditioning). We will return next year.

6/10 Good

Not nearly what I was expecting
Was not impressed would the service. Multiple issues with communication about the resort leaving us missing out on opportunities and losing out on parts of our booking. I am not sure if there were so many issues due to covid, but I will not be back during our next trip to Elounda. The food in the restaurant was not good and the drinks were all lacking. We paid extra for a lobster dinner and highly regret it. Waited 20-30 minutes in between each course. It was one of the most frustrating meals I've had. The property is nice, but outdated . On a positive note, the views are great.
