Is there anything worse than trying to relax by the pool while a parade of children dive into a cannonball, spraying you all over with cold water, screaming and shouting and generally interrupting your chill-out zone? If this is triggering any bad memories, then you should try staying at an adults-only hotel in Greece. Stretch out by the pool and enjoy nothing but the sound of lapping water and peaceful silence at these gorgeous hotels in Greece.

An adults-only hotel with a private pool on Crete
★★★★★ Sensimar Elounda Village Resort & Spa by Aquila| Elounda, Crete
Romantic, luxurious, stupendous – three words that best describe this adults-only hotel. The only thing you’ll be worrying about is which bikini to wear to the pool. Oh, but first you’ll need to choose a pool because the Sensimar Elounda Village Resort & Spa boasts three outdoor pools. And the sea, which can be accessed via the hotel’s own beach, is also right outside the complex. In the beach area, you can relax on hanging nets directly above the cool sea water.
A particular room highlight is the beachfront Deluxe Bungalow, which sits directly on the waterfront and boasts a private infinity pool. In this category, you get breakfast delivered to your room at no extra charge, and you can enjoy the stunning sea views from your very own balcony. In addition to this room type, there are two further categories (Duplex and Superior Bungalow) with a private pool. If a private pool is not all that important to you and you prefer to be on the beach anyway, then you may want to choose the standard category or the Junior Bungalow Suite, which also has a large balcony with panoramic sea views and a complimentary breakfast room service.Check availability >>

As befits an adults-only resort, you don’t have to do without your beloved bars either. The Luna Rossa Bar offers cocktails, champagne, wine, and other drinks. Why not start the evening with a fruity cocktail before dinner? The Kouzina Restaurant offers spectacular views of the sea, the starry sky and the rugged rocks that rise from the ocean. The cuisine is both creative and Greek.
