We knew all about the location of the Elounda Residence as we know Elounda well so we were prepared for it to be hilly to say the least. We were on a self catering basis with a hire car so we did not get to use all the hotel facilities which all looked very good. Our apartment was very comfortable, well equipped for this type of Greek accommodation, we even had a sandwich toaster which was very useful. It was cleaned everyday by two very jolly, pleasant ladies and the hotel staff we did meet were very friendly, pleasant, kind and helpful. Our apartment was at the top of the hill up a very bumpy track and the trek down to the hotel was through the garden and a bit dodgy at times. (We are both retired and my husband has walking difficulties so it was a bit painful for him.) We spent a few evenings at the taverna and had a brilliant evening there on their "Lobster Evening". The track down to the village from the top of the resort is an experience in itself, we used to go down it but come back the other way as it was kinder on our little car. All in all we had a good time and would recommend this hotel if you don't mind being away from the village and don't take high heeled shoes!!
