A small and friendly hotel offering a warm welcome within easy walking distance of Elounda's beach and resort centre

Standing in a slightly elevated position just off the road that leads into Elounda, this small, mid-range hotel is barely a 10-minute walk from the resort centre and just a few minutes further from the harbour and the main beach. A couple of smaller coves are even closer and are lovely for snorkelling, and the nearest tavernas are also just a couple of minutes' walk away, as is the stop for local buses towards Agios Nikolaos and Plaka, so a hire car is certainly not necessary here. And if even the short walk to one of the beaches should occasionally feel like too much of an effort, the Elounda Krini Hotel boasts an enticing swimming pool, and the terrace that surrounds it is amply stocked with sun-loungers and parasols.

The hotel comprises 39 rooms and suites. Whilst not overly large or luxurious, all are attractively furnished, brightly decorated and kept spotlessly clean. All are equipped with air-conditioning, satellite TV (limited English-language channels), safety-deposit boxes, free WiFi, a mini-fridge and tea-and-coffee-making facilities. Each has a compact en-suite shower room and a balcony. Rooms for two people have either a double bed or twin beds, and are priced depending on their outlook: superior rooms enjoy lovely views of the sea, standard rooms have partial sea and garden views whilst basic rooms face towards the street and the mountains. There are also a number of slightly larger family rooms with a third bed and sea-facing balconies, and family suites with a double bedroom and a separate living area with two sofa beds, as well as two shower rooms and two balconies (with either sea or mountain views).

The Krini Hotel is under the same management as the Elounda Garden Suites, and like at its sister property, it is the friendliness of the staff and their genuine willingness to please that make a stay here so enjoyable. This authentic Cretan hospitality is also evident in the hotel's restaurant, where days get off to a great start with a wholesome breakfast buffet of yoghurt, cereals, juices, fruit, cold meats and cheeses, homemade cakes and jams, whilst eggs and other hot dishes are freshly cooked to order. The snack bar next to the pool is open from mid-morning to 7 pm and serves a wide choice of refreshing drinks as well as light lunches and salads. For dinner, guests are free try out some of the many restaurants that line the seafront in Elounda.
