Many hotels claim that your every wish is their command, particularly if you have the potential to be a generous tipper. But the Elounda Gulf Villas & Suites may be the only one that will, upon request, fill your private pool with either fresh or salt water. Not everything here is perfect—which is to say that the 18-villa, ten-suite property is not on the sea but on a hill overlooking Mirabello Bay. But beyond that shortcoming, if you consider it one, it's hard to imagine another property in Greece that does a better job of making guests feel the world is theirs. Once you've tired of the pool, for instance, you can spend some time in your private gym, or if you've already eaten at the hotel's restaurant, have a chef come in to prepare a meal—with or without salt.
