Why You'll Love It

"Swim in the Aegean Sea or sunbathe by your own individual pool, experiences at Porto Elounda Golf Resort & Spa are always memorable. Hotel guests can utilise 8 restaurants across the Elounda Resort, all of which cater well for families with children. That said, the resort is ideal for couples too, with a glorious spa and some really personal room types and suites which you feasibly don' t have to ever leave, should you seek privacy and solace."
