- 7 a la carte restaurants; Greek to Japanese - Peruvian & 2 buffet restaurants

- For children the hotel offers a daily activities programme and evenings of children's films in the company of the Kids Club staff. Babysitters are available
We found the Dionysos Restaurant which is named after the hedonistic God of Wine lived up to its name with delicious cuisine to match the understated atmosphere.
Tamara really was exceptionally knowledgeable and had a very good attitude.

This luxurious hotel created in traditional Cretan style oozes sophistication. With access to two private, sandy beaches and a wide range of leisure activities to choose from, Elounda Beach Hotel lives up to its billing as a 'Leading Hotel of the World'.
The 245 rooms including 50 villas with private heated pools. We loved the ultra-modern and endlessly luxurious Yacht Club Villas, which provide the ultimate, exclusive waterfront paradise.
Relax on the beach or by the pool, wander along meandering paths through extensive gardens or embark on fascinating sightseeing tours, then revitalise in the calming atmosphere of the spa.
Best time to be there
The mainland and islands are very hot and dry in July and especially August, the preferred travel month for French, Italian and Spanish holiday makers, making conditions busy, hotel availability limited and the beaches crowded. May, June and September are infinitely more comfortable and generally less expensive.
Rhodes, with its refreshing westerly winds and moderate summer heat, makes it the ideal place to travel for a summer holiday or a short break in the spring or Autumn.
