Elounda Bay Palace Hotel

The Elounda Bay Palace Hotel on the beachfront has a great choice of restaurants. By the water, you’ll find an a la carte restaurant, while inside, there’s a buffet spot that serves international cuisine.

During your stay here, you have three pools to enjoy, including one heated and indoors. Kids also have their own pool, and the main pool is surrounded by sun loungers across lawns.

Down by the beach is an intriguing bar styled like a boat, with wooden flooring and sails for shade.

Everywhere you look at the hotel, you find activity, and the five floodlit tennis courts are fantastic for any aspiring Roger Federers.

Resort Summary

The town of Elounda is Crete‘s best-kept secret – it’s technically a small fishing village, but houses some of the island’s most exclusive accommodation that attracts famous faces from around the world. It strikes the perfect blend of relaxing and energetic, with a scenic harbour and seaside, plus ancient ruins to explore.

Elounda faces the island of Spinalonga, whose strange historical sites are easily reachable by boat. And the mystery continues under the water’s surface at what’s left of the sunken city of Olous. But everything’s pretty straightforward when it comes to the town’s bars and restaurants – with tantalising Greek eats and cocktails along the water, they’re just plain fabulous.
