Renowned for its genuine warmth and friendliness, the elounda mare hotel proudly upholds a tradition spanning twenty years of excellence in courtesy and cuisine. Built as a Cretan mansion, the elounda mare hotel is a jewel of traditional architecture and design, with gems of antique furniture and artwork adorning the halls and accommodations. Each lounge and open space reflects the integrity of style and originality of expression that make the elounda mare hotel so adorable. It is no wonder that many guests consider it their home away from home.
Elounda Mare organizes regular cleanup campaigns around the hotel, achieving results like the restoration of one of the wetlands crucial to the island's biodiversity.
Thus every year, the staff at the Elounda Mare Hotel organizes local cleanup campaigns to beautify the streets, parking lots and most importantly the wetlands. These old salt marshes are a major biodiversity pool. Not only are these sites teeming with amazing animal and plant, they serve as a refuge for numerous species of migratory birds. All employees, as well as their families and local schoolchildren, participate in the cleanup campaigns. Guests are also invited to help if they wish. The team effort builds stronger ties with the local communities plus increases awareness and respect for the island's ecosystem.
