Aquila Elounda Village is exclusively a couples hotel. Predominantly Europeans from France, Germany and Britian.
This establishment is on the edge of the peninsula and built into the rocks, 4km from Elounda. There are some high end luxury hotels in the area but little in the way of amenities, other than a mini-market 2km away. A public bus operates twice daily to Elounda from the entrance during high season.
The hotel boasts a small private artificial sandy beach. Entrance to the sea is via ladders, from a concrete walkway around the rocks. Sunbeds and umbrellas are free to guests, watersports are offered, and a beach bar is built into the rocks.
The main infinity pool has a spacious surround, with plenty of spaced out sunbeds, and trees to offer shade. Two further pools are small and have small sunbathing terraces built into the cliff face. Additionally there is a heated indoor pool.
