    You expect far more when you arrive. The wifi is only for 3 devices. A lot of hassle when you are with four and 6 devices (phone/ipad). Everytime you 've to fill in the unfriendly passcode Toilet was full of ugly stain Fridge in the room far too small No pillows on the coach Young personal member at the pool was far from friendly No possibility to drink water at breakfast No cooker in the room for making tea

    Seaview

    _-Internet not included. The worse: you can pay but not for 24/24, it cots 5,10, 20 for 90, 200 & 500 minutes! Really things out of our time, especially when every modest taverna and room has free internet in Greece. Please let rooms cost a little more but make internet FREE! - the refrigerator in the room was almost heating beverages... - average low quality of breakfast

    - Beautiful location - Very comfortable room, astonising view - bathroom with a huge window + see view - the bed

    Breakfast/meal quality is typicall of large hotels chains, which I personally deslike. Such a small hotel as Ilion shoud make an effort to use better products, local ingredients and more imagination.

    Excellent location. calm, peacefull place. Very nice view over Elounda bay from the main terrace as well as from the suite.

    Internet connection poor; expecting fibre optic connection in a few weeks.

    Natural environment with magnificent sea and multi-headland view, facing east. Clean and spacious, quiet room. Rich buffet breakfast, also including local delicacies. Very friendly and helpful staff. 10-20' drive to several traditional villages with interesting architecture and exquisite local food.

    No free wifi, wifi cards available to purchase but very expensive. Although not on holiday to use wifi it's a bonus to have in order to check in for a return flight in the following few days.

    Great sized room with a beautiful sea view, very clean, food at pool bar was good and staff were pleasant. Would return.

    Overpriced and super slow wifi connection, but hey why not enjoy the view and ocean instead!

    Great location for a quiet relaxed holiday, a short stroll to the nearest beach. Picture perfect panoramic views from the room. Very friendly and helpful staff w great recommendations on the local restaurants and attraction.

    Annoying that they charge for wifi at all, and they charge exuberant rates! Breakfast is fine if you have no great expectation.

    Beuatiful view from the poolside, dining terrace and seaview rooms. Elegant and well kept gardens, very nice and quiet pool. Spacious rooms

    The staff were amazing. Most were mature staff and this showed in the way the hotel was run so efficiently. The breakfast buffet and poolside menu was excellent and above average. The evening buffet was also very good. The pool, poolside seating area and internal areas were really clean and welcoming. I would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to stay in Elounda.

    No free wi fi. You have to pay for the security box. When you are paying this much money, you would expect these things to be complimentory.

    The view was amazing .

    The wifi is not free which is a joke! But I was only there for one night so it's ok Also they allow people to leave their towels on loungers by the pool! This should not be allowed! People should have to give it to someone else if they are gone for more than 15mins.

    Very near the nice hotels where you can pop in for a drink such as the elounda bay palace hotel!

    Absolutely brilliant week at the Elounda ilion. We had a sea view bungalow which had brilliant views of the bay. Breakfast was excellent and the food at the snack bar was also great. Staff were amazing especially Nikos! We will be back!

    The wifi is not free what nowadays is not acceptable, specially for a hotel like this. Apart from that the hotel is very nice but too expensive if you just want a place to stay to visit the area around.

    Nice breakfast but missing fresh fruit. In Crete that shouldn't happen. Room is comfortable and has a great view.

    Couldn't see sea from swimming in pool. Suggest remove concrete rim that supports the fence around pool.

    Friendly staff. Great location. Beware not close to beach. Brilliant pool.

    The food wad very poor. Missed breakfast a few times because of poor standard. Make sure you have a superior room or you will be dissatisfied with the quality of standard rooms

    View was excellent. .. but too far to walk into town

    The only thing that was a little odd was the fact the you could pick up the room safe and walk out with it as it wasn't bolted in

    The staff could not do enough for us, they were always there with a greeting and a smile. We all really enjoyed the facilities and the views were to die for!

    breakfast was dreadful, you can even run into dirty spoons! 4€ per 1 hour of WiFi: absurd!

    position, view, size of the room and facility (we had a suite sea front, but it stands for the money!), sea access in front of the hotel with very convenient rock sea access and resting area

    I paid a lot for a double room with a sea view and when we arrived I realised why - we had been given a 4 bed 2 balcony bungalow. It was lovely but we did not need so much space - we had paid for something that we didn't ask for or need.

    Great views of the bay, lovely room, air con, 30 minute walk to Elounda with a great choice of tavernas. Would be a waste to eat at the hotel each night as you would miss out. Lovely staff.

    room 39 as i mentioned was perfect except that every morning the hotel's kitchen ventillation fan strarted and since it was installed just above the room was making big noise

    Great staff who made the stay easy and relaxing. Really well maintained grounds full of colour and greenery. Fantastic views of the bay, and away from noise of main town. 10-15 minute walk into the town is easy, and only E7 taxi to get back if you don't feel like walking after dinner!
