Historical Traveler Reviews Elounda Palm Hotel
I live in hotels and this was heaven
I live out of a suitcase, often saying in 5* hotels with my work and this was a fantastic stay. We had 7 nights in a junior suite room 577 which had a super view out to sea.. and it was worth every penny. Elounda is very expensive and about a 20 min walk. The breakfast isn't worth getting up for but other than that it's very homely, not a huge hotel like I usually end up with work and the staff are so friendly. Taxis are pricey - about 12eur to Ag Nic and 60eur to HER airport. Highly reccomended and we will definately be back!
Je passe ma vie dans les hôtels et celui-ci était paradisiaque
Je vis dans les valises, je descends souvent dans des hôtels 5 étoiles pour mon travail et ce séjour était vraiment fantastique. Nous avons séjourné 7 nuits dans la Suite Junior 577 qui avait une vue somptueuse sur la mer... et chaque centime était justifié.
Elounda est une ville très chère, elle se trouve à environ 20 minutes de marche. Le petit déjeuner ne vaut pas vraiment le coup de se lever mais cela mis à part, l'hôtel est très simple et accueillant, il ne s'agit pas d'un de ces immenses hôtels où je descends généralement pour mon travail, le personnel est très aimable.
Les taxis sont un peu chers - environ 12 euros pour aller à Agios Nikolaos et 60 euros pour l'aéroport d'Héraklion.
Cet hôtel est vivement conseillé et nous reviendrons certainement.
Loin du 4* catégorie + !!!
Avons été en Crète en octobre 2006.
Hôtel avec chambres confortables mais literie assez dure car matelas posé à même un bloc de beton.
Pas d'animation à part +/- 4 CD revenant en boucle, tout au long du jour au bar, à la piscine et en salle à manger.
Situé en dessous de la route principale, à flanc de montagne avec une entrèe si exigue que le car ne pouvait y descendre pour nous charger le jour du retour. Aussi fallait-il grimper la pente avec ses valises et attendre le car de Jetair en bord de route même sous les pluies diluviennes que nous avons connues cette année ci.
Le petit-déjeuner présentait uniquement des tranches de pain blanc et gris à griller soi-même et des cakes de + en + secs au fils des jours.
A ce repas, sur le buffet, chaque plat a eu, pendant 12 jours, la même place et le même contenu au point que l'on aurait pu se servir les yeux fermés. Pas de fruits ni de produits laitier.
Au dîner-buffet, le potage en soupière sur le comptoir était froid au bout de 10 minutes après l'ouverture de la salle.
Les plats pourtant variés et bien relevés étaient tièdes.
Pour moi cet hôtel mérite tout au plus 3* au lieu des 4* sup. annoncées.
Le personnel était sympathique.
Quel excellent séjour ! Vue magnifique, cadre superbe, service excellent et visages souriants...Que demander de mieux ?
Very nice modern chic hotel yet still has traditional aspects with large bedrooms big balconies (superior bungalow) and excellant pool, bar area and gardens.
The hotel is situated a little distance from Elounda town and the beach (20 minute walk) so a car might be a good recommendation or there is a bus stop outside the front of the hotel.
The owners are always on hand often seen eating and having a couple of cocktails at the bar in the evening and checking that all the guests are happy.
We stayed for 3 nights including breakfast and enjoyed the hotel especially the excellant cocktails in the evening bar. The dinner buffet that we had one night was not bad but i thought the decore and the food were of a lesser standard than the rest of the hotel.
All in all a nice hotel for a romantic getaway
Hotel très sympa
Nous avons réservé un bungalow et avons été agréablement surpris. Jolie déco, propreté exemplaire, personnel très sympa et salle de bain moderne . Le petit déj était bien, servi au bord de la piscine et le restaurant était très bon.
Par contre, nous avons visité les chambres que l'on a trouvé minables : lits séparés, salle de bain précaire et peu engageante.
We have just returned from 2 weeks half board at the Elounda Palm. We arrived very early morning, the reception was manned and we were shown straight to our room. There were complimentary meals and drinks left in the fridge. The room was spacious and suitably equipped for self catering.
Towels were changed each day and bedding every other day throughout the holiday.
We were given a very warm welcome by all the staff and made to feel that we had their personal attention, frequently being called by our first names.
The owners and their family were much in evidence and frequently ate at the pool bar and stopped to talk to their guests.
The Elounda Palm is a very clean and orderly hotel with a uniquiely modern style that does not detract from its local charm. It is tastefuly decorated and the owners take obvious care in the style they want to achieve.
The pool is constantly maintained because of the greenery in the surrounding gardens,but the maintenance is done unobtrusively.
There is a small children's pool and a play area for young children. The Elounda is not one I would choose to take a young family.
There is a twenty minute stroll to the beach and a further ten minute stroll to the town.
Overall, a good choice and we look forward to returning in the near future.
What an excellent holiday it was!!
Great views, beautiful surroundings, excellent service and friendly faces...nothing more needed"!!!!!
A place you will love
Excellent hotel, great views, friendly staff and rooms that will make you feel like home. We stayed at a junior suite with pool and a very cosy terrace. In the room you will find all you need to make your stay more pleasant.In a few words. Very nice hotel, clean, modern, kids friendly, great food, friendly staff...what more can you ask.
Enjoyed every minute!!!!
We stayed at the Elounda Palm for four nights and enjoyed it very much. The hotel is affordable comfort in an area of very expensive accomodation options. For 80 euros a night, you get a very comfortable room with a/c and full bath including a hearty buffet breakfast. Every room has its own balcony or terrace with fine views. Ours overlooked Elound Bay and the island of Spinalonga. The hotel has a nice pool and immaculate grounds. The grounds have the feel of a resort. The hotel is about a kilometre away from the centre of Elounda. Overall, the Elounda Palm is a great hotel in a very beautiful region of Crete.

... work though. We were getting hotter, the shade was waning and we were done with the stores. We walked to the other side of town, not far at all, and before us – more blue water and a glorious beach. Now, I wish I had my bathing suit. Oh well.
Now more hot and tired, we decided to return to the ship and rest. We grabbed a bit of lunch, staked out two lounge chairs on the pool deck, and relaxed in ...

We decided with the weather we would head back and have a lazy arvo at the resort. After recharging the batteries we headed out for dinner into old Hersonissos. Here we found a cute little street with old Greek style tavernas and cafes. We stopped at a trip advisor recommended one called "Zachos". The service and food was great. Ali ...

It took us just on 2 hours to make it back to Hersonissos where we had an early dinner. Ali had a Greek dish called Stifado which is slow cooked beef with onions in a tomato sauce. This was served in a crusty bread roll. Mel had spag bog. By now the weather had set in so we retired to our resort to chill out and watch a ...
