We arrived at the Elounda apartments for a weeks holiday. We have 2 children aged 7 and 4. The apartment was on the ground floor with a balcony. When we opened the metal security door onto the balcony we were immediately in full view of sunbathers and passers by. Also it only fitted 2 chairs so was too small be... More

Just come back from a week at the Olive Grove apartments in Elounda, this is the 3rd time we have used these apartments as a holiday base. The Olive grove is central to all the delights of the village, within walking distance of the harbour and main square where the majority of bars and restaurants lie. Julia, Dimitri , Mano... More

As we expected these apartments were clean, comfortable and very conveniently situated for the main square and harbour. The kitchen was well equipped for eating-in, however we spent most of our time dining out in the fantastic restaurants a few minutes walk away. In the apartments' snack bar Julia cooked an amazing full English breakfast and her sons made yummy... More

Having read reviews on this site we were happy to book this venue, boy were we disappointed! arriving at 02;00 we had to circumvent the pool and sunbeds in the dark in order to reach our 'Apartment' number 14. Clean enough if you dont look at the rusty shower head and rusty man hole cover in the corner of the... More

perfectly situated for us, close to all the tavernas, beach, bars, boats, shops, though it is still a peaceful place to be. The apartments are clean, spacious and well equipped. Best part of our holiday was meeting such a warm and welcoming family. We loved the resort of Elounda, but our best times were sitting at the bar at Olive... More

Well another great stay at the Olive Grove has been and gone in a flash! As with other stays here everything was just right and as we like it. Great addition of meze with your early evening drinks although I loved the giant beans so much I ate far too much of them just before dinner time!! As usual loved... More

Lovely patio ( although next to narrow side road which was quite quiet ) Bathroom fine. As already mentioned it's run by julias brother in... More

Be very careful when booking. You could unknowingly book a room without balcony. Stayed here before, no problem. It is not the owners fault but First Choice misrepresenting the room. We had very limited outside space, with no privacy at all. Had good view of the rear bar entrance, kitchen and communal toilet facilities though!! If you don't like dogs... More

This was our third trip to Crete, but our first stay in Elounda. We previously visited Elounda on a day trip to spinalonga and were so impressed with Elounda we decided to try to have our next holiday there. Olive Grove Apartments were everything we expected of them and more. The fact that it is run by a family made... More

This was our first experience of the OLive Grove and it certainly lived up to all I had heard. The family run business was just like being greeted by members of your own family on arrival and departure, in between times it only got better!! Meeting the other holiday makers was like meeting old friends from the very first day.... More
