Located at the south-western corner of Crete, the family-run Glykeria Hotel features an outdoor pool with a sea-view sun terrace, and a restaurant. The hotel was very modern and clean. The staff was wonderful and made sure we were taken care of. We went to see the elafonsi pink sand beach but it was very crowded and I would say over rated the sand was not that pink as in pictures. However we found a couple other beaches that were beautiful and more private. The hotel had a nice pool that we also made use of and the sunsets were amazing ...we had a balcony that overlooked this. It was a very relaxing and enjoyable vacation. I would definitely recommend this hotel (have a car so you can tour around the area).
Located in Elafonisi, a 6-minute walk from Elafonissi Beach, Elafonisi Village provides accommodations with a restaurant, free private parking, a garden and a terrace. The hotel features family rooms.... Location overlooking Elafonisi beach was super. Close proximity afforded easy access to this very popular beach quieter times before and after tour buses were there. The restaurant had a gorgeous panorama of the beach and very good food along with very friendly staff. Rooms were on the basic side, but adequate, clean and comfortable. Strategic location is the key element at this place.
Xasteria features garden views, free WiFi and free private parking, located in Elafonisi. Location. Clean, modern. Close to good tavernas and convenience store. Nice ocean view from the 2 rooms facing street. Bathroom nice and modern . Air conditioner worked great . Nice outdoor spots to rinse feet and hang wet swim clothes for each unit .
Nireides faces Chrisoskalitissa, a naturalistic reserve recently declared protected area by the European Union. What a glorious stay. The location is perfect for visiting Elafonisi without dealing with the crowds. The pool was wonderful, there is a small beach/swimming hole within 8 mins walk, three separate restaurants a few minutes away, and a mini market on site. Would be great for families with small kids. Can’t wait to come back.
Featuring a garden, White Lake Holiday House is a holiday home located in Agios Padeleimon in the Crete Region, just 2461 feet from White Lake beach. Excellent location, close to the beaches. There are few very good taverns in the are and also supermarkets. The host was responsive and provided us a lot of good info.
Featuring a swimming pool, free bikes and a garden and views of the garden, Villa Evenos is located in Elafonisi and provides accommodations with free WiFi. Maria is a very welcoming host. We had a lovely stay at the house and had everything we required
Musagores Rooms features mountain views, free WiFi and free private parking, located in Elafonisi, a 9-minute walk from Elafonissi Beach. Some units include a balcony and/or terrace. Near the famous beach and good restaurants. Nice room. Host very helpful. Fruits in the room make you happy after the long trip.
Elafonisi is the best beach I've ever been to. It is relaxing and full of sun and shallow water to just play in and walk around in. I took tons of pictures to use for reference for my paintings later on. My kids loved it. We stayed at a little place right on the beach, and ate delicious foods prepared by the same family in the morning. Unforgettable experience. A bit of a drive to get there from Souda Bay (windy roads), but my husband was driving so I was able to relax! :)
This facility had the most beautiful views, a restaurant on site, and was extremely close to the beach with ample parking for its guests. Comfortable basic room with cooking facilities if one wanted to prepare food. Relaxing private porch provided comfort to view sunrise and sunset. I highly recommend this facility!
Amazing beach, but on daily peak time hords of tourists and then the sunbeds and umbrellas destroy the natural view; rather to visit on less popular times - early morning, later in the afternoon. definitely worth visiting. nice nature and beach - to walk around and explore the surrounding. perhaps also to explore from seaside - canoe, kayak, paddleboard
An amazing location, amazing hosts, and amazing food! The owners made us feel like family! The room was clean and comfortable. It could use an electrical outlet in the bathroom. Anything we asked for was provided: iron, blow dryer and even a birthday cake. The beach is just down the road! From our balcony we had a view of the sea and the monastery! There was a mini market two doors down. Free parking. Excellent food all homemade by the owners! Highly recommend this hotel and taverna! ***** five stars!
Must see. I like the western coasts in Greece.. the pink sand is truly something unusual. In August there are a lot of people and there is not much to do besides beach-ing.. but that is enough. You can walk on the Elafonisi island and visit the lighthouse, maybe. The small towns in the south/southwest are not connected to each other, so it is not advised to walk 10 km on the dunes under the burning sunlight. We rather rented a car and had to drive north a lot and then back to south to visit Paleochora. Paleochora is very good! There are fewer people, and the beach is longer, they never asked us for our 5 euros when we occupied a few sunbeds. If you walk into the sea, you can walk 10 meters and it is still only 60 cm deep, so it is perfect for a beginner swimmer / children. In the water there is sand so you don't have to make your way around the stones. Next to the beach parking spaces there is an IN.KA - you need to watch out for this. IN.KA is the biggest supermarket, you can get everything there and usually for half of what they charge you at the beach. Next time when I select destinations for my holiday I will pick only cities with IN.KA :)
Quite beautiful beach with clear water. However, it's so famous and too many tourists, thus it gets crowded and loud. We prefer quiet beaches and in the end found other isolated beaches we went were better. I advise that you go to Island area and not main beach area with many parasols. althogh no shade in island area.

The best accommodation we had in Crete in 5 years for this kind of price. Everything is brand new and tastefully decorated, Xasteria means sky full of stars in Greek so your rooms have constellation names. We stayed in Adromeda facing the sea , with a cosy terrace. Incredible feeling of cleanliness, peace and quiet for a great stay! The toiletries are superb and they put new ones even if you don't finish them! Loved everything, congratulations to the owners!

Perfect location for going to Elafonisi beach. Even in the shoulder season with high winds there was a parade of cars and buses arriving by late morning. We cut our stay short due to the wind and went to a more sheltered beach but this was no fault of the property. They were super helpful and kind. The restaurants nearby are great and the store downstairs has everything you need.

Wonderful, secluded, peaceful location with views of the sea and mountains. House and garden were just perfect. Choice of good restaurants, beautiful Elafonisi and deserted White Lake beach all within a few minutes’ drive. Huge thanks go to the host family. We had never experienced such hospitality and generosity on holiday, it won't be forgotten!
