Overall rating

4.6 / 5

based on 65 reviews

A terrific way to take a break from Crete’s plentiful and lovely beaches while staying cool. Multiple water slides, lazy river, and a large pool area offer options most resort properties don’t have. Something for kids of all ages. Best option if you’re close to Chania, Georgioupoli, Kavros, or Rethymno. Lockers and changing rooms on site, as well as an ample shop for most tourist or last minute needs. Use the package deals on Get Your Guide in order to get your meal and transportation included.

It was a very nice trip. Claudia, the guide, was very nice and informative. The time allotted at the beach (3,5-4 hrs) was a perfect amount of time at the beach and the drive to the beach were beautiful. The only bad thing of the entire trip was the amount of people on the bus who repeatedly took their masks off no matter how many times they were asked to put them back on.

Unforgettable excursion to Elafonisi. The pick-up was on time, the tour guide and the driver were super warm, especially Spiridon went to great lengths and Christos shortened the trip with very interesting facts. You really noticed that you were here with people who love and live Crete. We will definitely book again with Balos Tours or Spiridon when we are back in Crete.

A great place worth visiting. However, it's hard to find a place to crash or even a free sunbed

simply fantastic. you should have seen it. I can only recommend
