I stayd here 4 yrs ago with my daughters and parents. We booked 3 days before going. Was very cheap. It's a beautiful place and Penelope is a lovely woman she and her family made us feel part of her family. Her mum makes amazing cakes. We were there two weeks and loved ever part of it. Would go again... More

Our first impression was what a lovely little complex, traditionally Greek, with cockerels cock a doodling and a backdrop of hills and the most amazing view of Mirabello! I was just waiting for Anthony Quinn to pop out to say hello! Seriously, if you want a back to basics Greek experience then Penelope is the place to be. You will... More

We got back from Penelope (Pinelope) last night, so I thought I'd get it down while I remembered. Much of what I wanted to write has already been written - I'll agree with pippaluc wholeheartedly - this is a little gem that I'm sort of loathe to share.... To sum up our own observations - yes, it is basic. There's... More

Nice quiet location but that was about it,,,,,,Equipment in the room was poor,,,Bed was awful,,Cardboard under the mattress because there was not enough planking,,,,,had to request a broom to sweep out the room because the cleaning was very poor,,,,A broom was just basically thrown in the general direction of the door to the room Service was very poor all round...

We've just spent two lovely weeks at Penelope. It's wonderfully peaceful and quiet, the only noise coming from some chickens, goats and occasional dog barking. Some people said that they found the cockerel and / or the dogs a problem, but we didn't. It is slightly up the hill with a great view down into Elounda, and across the bay... More

We arrived on the outskirts of Elounda and were dropped off by the coach following a 2hr transfer (said 57mins in the brochure); it sounds awful but was a pleasant journey on a lovely air-conditioned coach. Penelope met us and took us to the accommodation in her car as the bus can't get up the narrow road, and the cases... More

Having spent a week in the pinelope appts elounda I have to say the stay has been very good. The rooms although basic are equipped with everything you need. There is air conditioning at a small daily cost. The pool is of a reasonable size and only 1.5 m deep all over so is ideal if cannot swim well. Also... More

we recently visited Pinelope apts and must say what a lovely relaxing time we had there. Situated in a slightly elevated location with sea & mountain veiws, clean simple rooms , a clean pool and pool bar and just a 10 minute walk to many taverna's, We would recommend Mam's restaurant and also Melissos but Despina's is a little further...

very cheap holiday in a 2 star studio however saying that was clean but basic. Pool area fab and never struggled with a sun bed. In a good location only a 10 mins walk into centre of Elounda. The Greeks are great and would recommend anyone holiday in this great country. A couple of pointers if you are going to... More
