One more amazing stay
It was our 4th time in Domes of Elounda, and for sure not the last one! We came only for four days to relax and the villa with the private pool was the best location to do it! The design was really beautiful and we found everything that we may need (hairdryer, amenities, towels, slippers, antimosquito devices, kitchen with fridge, microwave etc)! The villa was clean and sanitize and they were cleaning the pool every morning! The quality of the food was outstanding , and I will mention for sure the starter from Blend restaurant with salmon and beetroot accompanied with a glass of white wine! Magnifique!!! The staff was more than friendly, polite and anytime ready to assist you with all your requests! We felt that we were guests n their “house” and not clients! Special mention to the Hotel Manager, who was very kind and professional! He knows what the hospitality means! There are many other things that you can find! Big pools, amazing beach, four different restaurants, spa area, kids club and open air gym! Don’t miss the opportunity to come and for sure you gonna love this place and the atmosphere! See you next year
We have just returned from the Domes of Elounda where we stayed for 9 nights. We were blown away by the resort. It’s so beautifully designed and landscaped, the pictures on TripAdvisor really don’t do it justice. The architecture is interesting and really exquisite and well done. The magical path from the adult pool to the beach is a particular highlight. It goes underneath the road through a tunnel and you emerge on a wonderful, photogenic and superbly landscaped beach, lined with olive trees. It really is something very special. Special thanks also to the charming and super helpful and warm beach staff. The level of service at this hotel is on another level. We have stayed in many 5 star resorts all over the world and the service in this hotel was something truly special. I am not the easiest customer especially when it comes to food as I am gluten intolerant and also allergic to nuts and every problem I had was dealt with very swiftly and professionally. I had researched and chosen this hotel for 3 other family members so I was really nervous that I had picked the right hotel but the staff really made it clear that they cared and they would make our precious holiday in this craziest of years a special one. Thank you so much Domes of Elounda, prepare yourselves, we will be back!
Best vacation ever
We had the best vacation ever. The staff was amazing and kind 100% of the time. The service was outstanding and the food was of high level. We recommended the resort to all of our friends and will continue to do so. We look forward to staying in other Domes resorts in the future. The resort provided us with everything you expect when vacationing - serenity, highest level of service, and most of all kindness and professional approach. Five stars all the way. Thank you Domes Resorts.
Fantastic stay again
We spent twelve nights at Domes - our fourth Consecutive September. We were pleasantly surprised about how ‘normal’ everything was. We stayed in a luxury private residence with two bedrooms and private pool. It was very quiet, very clean and well stocked. Loved having a washing machine. I can thoroughly recommend The Haute Living room - thanks go to Lena, Sophia and Katerina for their ever cheerful and helpful advice. Nothing was ever too much trouble. When we reported one minor issue in the villa, maintenance arrived in minutes and it was sorted. Special mention must be of Isabella whose excellent service and delightful manner are a credit to her - and Domes. Although there were subtle changes this year, such as no buffet breakfast and no Yosai restaurant, Topos and Blend continue to provide excellent service and variety of food. We had some lovely meals at Topos-lunch and dinner- and the staff were well led by Alex who remembered us from last year and our drinks order! Impressive. Fotini, and Glykeria were memorable for their service with a smile. Our favourite, however, was Blend which too served quality and varied food and had a relaxed ambience. My husband had a fillet steak one night which he said was one of the best he’d ever had...and he’s had many! All the staff there were professional and never stopped moving. Too many to mention by name but, again, the managers - Thanos and Alexandros - led their team well. T you to Katharine in particular for breakfast service. We swapped our half board dinner for lunch and went to Plaka and Elounda few times - both are a short drive or taxi ride away. Plaza is walkable too. We had excellent meals. The vast majority of restaurants and shops were open and everybody was welcoming and attentive. Domes is well placed for site seeing and shopping, with Agios Nikolaos being a short drive away and many ancient ruins such as Gournia and Spinalonga not far. Knossos is about an hour’s drive too - and it is only an hour from the airport. Hiring a car is beneficial and driving is easy and safe. Thank you so much Domes - it was worth two weeks in isolation when we returned home. we’re already looking forward to next year.
Kudos to GM George & team
I could write about the Domes of Elounda experience for pages, there's so much greatness to share (the view, the food, the rooms, the staff, the facilities) but I see others have already done this. So instead I'll share how brilliant the staff were and how consistently implemented the Covid protocol was. I have uploaded 2 photos, 1 of each side of the Covid measures provided at check in. We were most impressed by how consistently these were followed around the hotel (we even saw walls being sanitised!) I truly felt wonderful Greek hospitality matched with reassurance that we were safe. I felt for all the staff wearing masks all day in the heat but it didn't seem to bother them at all, for those that wore visors it was wonderful to see their huge smiles. I was impressed to see the General Manager George out and about in the resort every day. I even saw him driving the carts around one day, what a great of checking your guests are ok. You can always tell a hotel will be brilliant when the GM is so visible, the resort runs like clockwork whilst maintaining a relaxed holiday feel. An example, on our check out day our bags were collected and put into our rental car whilst we had breakfast. I was fully expecting the hassle of check out, lining up, waiting for bags etc, not at Domes! Thank you George & team, we will be back.
