    Lack of variety at breakfast. Would have been nice to have freshly squeezed orange juice, freshly cooked eggs or omelettes, and different fruit selections. Should be free bottle of water daily.

    The pool bar food and staff were excellent. Bed was very hard but was given mattress topper on request. Views are amazing- worth asking for sea view.

    No cause for complaint, but it would have been nice to have an electric kettle in the room, without having to request it.

    The Staff were absolutely sensational. Friendly. Helpful. Efficient. Professional. The location with a view across the Mediterranean is lovely. We went out every day, and walked into Elounda most days. Just a 20 minute walk or so. Taxi's are available of course, but we chose to walk. Just be aware of traffic, and walk facing oncoming traffic, that's always the rule, wherever you go, when there is no path.

    The bed and pillows were like sleeping on the floor. Very hard and uncomfortable. Why no face cloths? I didn't have one with me assuming there would be some there. No one knew what I meant when I asked for one. What does everyone use to wash thier faces with?

    Beautiful and scenic. The pool was lovely, if not a little cold. The breakfast was good and filling every morning. I now have a new love of honey and yogurt. Perhaps real orange juice would be better though, I missed having it each morning.

    You need a car or a cab or good walking legs to get to town but all the tavernas were great.

    Elounda is a great place for a holiday. Hotel Ilion us small with a personal feel and is lovely and clean. Great food and the staff were very helpful without being intrusive.

    A bit too far from centre of town. Require a car or it's 8€ each way by taxi. Could do with tea/coffee making facilities in the room

    Excellent accommodation. Friendly helpful staff. Stunning views across the bay.

    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

    _-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 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!
