Fodor's Expert Review Akti Olous

Akti Olountos, Elounda, Crete, 72053, Greece

Set on the edge of the gulf, with sweeping views across to the bay from its rooftop terrace pool, this hotel may be the answer to affordable accommodations in Elounda. Rooms are perfectly functional and kept very clean, and many overlook a small shingle beach that fronts the property, with a beachside restaurant where you can take breakfast. Quiet, it is certainly more budget than boutique but a 10-minute stroll gets you into the heart of the town.

PROS

  • seaside location within walking distance of town
  • beautiful views from rooms
  • same beautiful views as the fancy hotels along the bay
  • good value for Elounda

CONS

  • some rooms are a bit small
  • groups can be noisy
  • some rooms are a bit small and dark
  • pricier rooms have the front sea view
  • can be busy with tour groups
  • pool area is small
  • adults only
