Restaurants & bars
Guests staying at one of the three Elounda Hotels & Resorts properties can choose to dine at a variety of restaurants across the resort. For breakfast, there's the poolside Nafsika and Deck (at Elounda Mare Hotel). Calypso & Wine Cellar is an award-winning gourmet French restaurant with à la carte breakfasts for Elounda Peninsula All Suite Hotel guests and Koh (at Elounda Peninsula All Suite Hotel) tops the list of romantic spots in-resort – this waterfront pan-Asian restaurant stretches out over the water and serves dinner by candlelight. Greek fare is celebrated at Odysseas (at Elounda Peninsula All Suite Hotel) by the water and Old Mill (at Elounda Mare Hotel), the resort's Cretan fine dining venue. Aglio e Olio serves al fresco Italian fare and for seafood lovers, the Yacht Club (at Elounda Mare Hotel) won't disappoint with its fresh, traditional seafood by the water (lunch all year, dinner seasonally), and the weekly seafood buffet, 'Fisher's Evening'. Karavia Bar (at Elounda Mare Hotel) and Peninsula Lounge (at Elounda Peninsula All Suite Hotel) both serve drinks with sea views and for a drink by the pool, guests can head to Kirki Bar and Beach bar & lounge.
Spa & wellness
What’s nearby? Despite its secluded beachfront location, the resort is an easy drive from the centre of Elounda, a charming waterfront town full of fishing boats, shops and tavernas. Boat trips to the mysterious island of Spinalonga are recommended for those with older children – this abandoned Venetian settlement was once a leper colony.
Tried and tested Unlike lots of other resorts, the Six Senses Spa* caters for younger guests as well as adults. If you’ve got children aged 12 and upwards, you can enjoy pampering treatments and wellness rituals as a family.
The sleeping arrangements Rooms and Suites at Porto Elounda are airy and sophisticated, with sleek wood floors and coastal shades. Porto Sea View Rooms offer some of the best vistas in the resort, and are available with a shared or private pool. Opt for a Porto Sea View Suite for lots more space and a separate living area. For larger families, the Two Bedroom Porto Sea View Suite and the Porto Exclusive Suite are more luxurious in terms of décor, and have a private pool as standard.
There is a 9-hole par-3 course at the hotel with a Golf Academy for children and adults run by a PGA pro.
