Fodor's Review

A waterfront perch on the edge of the gulf of Mirabello outside Elounda and near the sunken city of Olous is not as luxurious as some of its neighbors but the bright rooms, all with balconies, are a step away from a strip of sandy beach and provide sweeping views of the sea and peninsula. The handsome, modern neoclassic style suggests a Greek island escape, and the rooftop pool and terrace are especially pleasant at sunset; there is also a waterside taverna and bar.
