We stayed here at the start of September in a premium suite with an outdoor jacuzzi at the top of the hill. The room was incredible, beautiful furniture, a large balcony and as you will have read the views are amazing. It was easy to get up and down on the shuttle services. We also had cool living included with our room, which allowed us access to Greco Levante at the very top of the resort, It's nice, it has a limited number of sunbeds, it was clearly designed to be a lovely restaurant, but it was closed. The small lunchtime buffet offered at Greco Levante was pretty poor, considering it's supposed to be a premium all inclusive experience. and the bar closed at 1800!!! That was a real shame considering it's such a great spot. We ate at lunchtime in the little restaurant by the pool, which was included for Cool Living guests, it was great and the food was all freshly cooked and there was plenty of choice. The bars have amazing views and a lovely atmosphere. The wine was decent enough, but it would have been good to have a wider choice considering the type of guest the hotel is aiming at. There's no pool bar, people sitting by the pool have to go into the lobby bar for a drink, which was strange. If you sit outside at the buffet, again the views are incredible and the service was fantastic too. BUT the hot food was not hot. We did mention it to a staff member and the next night it did seem a little better, but then deteriorated again. It's a shame because this hotel isn't cheap. I wouldn't have minded paying what I paid, if the food had been better and there were more A-La Carte options. I should point out that the Asian restaurant was very good. We ate out on several occasions. You are paying for the location, the views, the quality of the premium rooms, the atmosphere at the bars - all 5 star... if the buffet was better, I would return because we love Elounda.

Just had a fabulous week at Elounda Blu hotel. Fabulous view, hotel, staff and food pretty good.the beach and bar down there took some use!! The surrounding villages and spinalonga island means there’s plenty with close distance. My negatives are, pool not heated so didn’t really use it, only one main toilet which wasn’t close to everything so always had a little walk to get there and very steep when returning to your rooms, which was definitely hard if your not fit and able! All in all we loved it and had a very relaxing week.

Fabulous hotel overlooking beautiful Elounda. The staff are fantastic and incredibly attentive. The premium private pool rooms are stunning. The only thing I think that needs improving is the limited options for vegans. There were some options but never a lot. Why not have at least one vegan dessert at the buffet? At breakfast there are 5 yogurts. Not one dairy free though! I would highly recommend this resort but hope they have more vegan options in the future so I can return.

The location of this hotel is unique. Most of the rooms have a sea view where you can see other islands at a close distance including the Spinalonga Fortress that dates back to the 1500s. The most beautiful site is sunrise when the sun rises over the islands giving breathtaking views of the glass smooth sea and the beautiful silence. The hotel itself is definitely the best I have stayed in. From the moment you arrive, you are warmly welcomed and given all the information you need for a relaxing stay. The rooms are built on the hillside and the walk to them is steep but the hotel provides golf buggies any time you need them if you have issues with walking up or down steep hills. All the current rooms on the lower level (older buildings)are very good with all the facilities you need. The shower is excellent. What is so unique is the balcony bungalows with stunning views of the sea and surrounding small islands. The hotel has an evening buffet with a good variety of foods to choose from every evening. There is also an Asian restaurant and next to the dining tables all the food is prepared and cooked in front of you by an excellent Vietnamese chef. His food is outstanding. The other restaurant is by the pool and is great if you want a change from buffet food. I highly recommend the rib eye steak! You do have to pay extra for this as it is not included in the all inclusive menu but you will not be disappointed. There is a 30% discount if you are a resident at the hotel. There is a good choice of food at this restaurant which is beside the pool. It’s about a twenty minute walk to Elounda town with a fishing harbour and a great range of taverns and restaurants. A bus stop is outside the hotel if you do not feel like walking but the walk is well worth it! Elounda Blu hotel has a small private beach with sun loungers and a small bar on the beach for alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks. You can also hire canoes, paddle boats etc from this convenient location. The drinks are included if you have an all inclusive holiday here. There is a main bar on the ground floor and a beautiful alfresco bar overlooking the sea and islands on the 2nd floor. This is a truly magnificent hotel, awesome staff in a truly beautiful location. It is extremely unique. I highly recommend it and will definitely be returning. This is a place where you can truly relax.
