A well presented stylish property with designer touches and a relaxed atmosphere throughout. Although intimate, the interior is spacious with large, impressive grounds. The attractive pool bar is an ideal spot to chill out and enjoy the coastal views.
Car hire is recommended as the property is in a quiet location. However, public transport is a 5 minute walk away for the trip to Elounda or Aghios Nikolaos.
Elounda Palm Hotel features a children’s pool and playground but limited entertainment options. It is more popular with adults looking for a relaxing stay in a contemporary environment.
The welcoming entrance is built from local stone, features both steps and a ramp for access, and is surrounded by colourful flowers and palm trees. The cream coloured main block is well maintained, with wooden shutters and protruding wooden balconies.
Balconies are compact in size with cafe-style tables and chairs, many with sea views. The single storey bungalow block, located in the gardens, features traditional style stone walls and spacious terraces with white wooden furnishings.
