BFB's Overview

*** Free Dine Around Half Board For 2019 Stays of 5+ nights***

This all-suite and villa boutique hotel; Domes of Elounda, Autograph collection, offers everything on the average, sophisticated parent's wish list. There's stylish interiors, stunning views, cool bars, well respected dining and a luxurious spa plus an exceptionally family-friendly approach with a well-run creche and kids club, teen games room, handy baby gear supplies and a choice of baby-sitting or in-room dining with butler service - perfect for romantic evenings, even with tots in tow!


As you'd expect, this level of attention to detail and five-star facilities rarely comes cheap but thankfully there's a range of accommodation options to suite various budgets from spacious suites to luxury villas with private pools.



Whichever type of accommodation is chosen, all feel exceptionally luxurious with Coco-mat mattresses, pillow menus, sophisticated toiletries, two person jacuzzi baths and private hot tubs or pools as standard. Each suite also benefits from individually designed interiors by Olyvia Siskou, who has used Designers Guild fabrics, hand-carved wooden furniture and local artwork to give them a light, yet elegant feel, aided by the floor to ceiling windows that offer lovely views over the island of Spinalonga and its Venetian fortress.


The hotel's staff are warm and friendly and frequently seen zipping along in golf buggies transporting guests the short but sometimes steep distance from their suites and villas to the hotel's stretch of sandy beach, bars and restaurants. The British run creche and kids club is well equipped, carefully maintained and well staffed by trained carers who fast become favourites with mini guests, allowing parents guilt-free time to lounge on a cushioned sunbed and read a book, or enjoy a drink or two in one of the hotel's two bars. Babysitting is also available and a romantic dinner on the pier restaurant makes for a very welcome injection of romance and glamour for parents of little ones.



Accommodation Overview - Villa Aptera

Location Information

The Domes of Elounda has a scenic but convenient location a short walk from the cluster of tavernas, shops and bars in the small village of Plaka or a little further to the larger village of Elounda. The town of Aghia Nikoloas and the nearby "Aqua Splash" waterpark are both within a short drive. The mysterious, uninhabited island of Spingalonga, the subject of the recent Victoria Hislop bestseller 'The Island', is just across the bay and boat trips depart regularly from the hotel's pier.

Other sites of interest within an hour's drive include the magnificent ruins of the Minoan city and palace of Knossos, which are breathtakingly well preserved and considered to be the second most important historic site in Greece, after the Parthenon in Athens.

There's a great choice of restaurants both on and off site, but our top tip is The Ferryman in Elounda, which we and other guests found to be of really good standard, in a great location and with excellent service.

The only let down was the food - an occupational hazard in Greece! It wasn't bad at all but just not amazing, though breakfast was fine and, at the beach restaurant, we had some great fresh grilled fish. We had a blast!"
