“Highly Recommended”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

We have been to Elounda before but wanted somewhere different to stay than on our last visit. We chose Markakis Apartments on the recommendation of Tripadvisor and were not disappointed. The apartment was clean, suitably equipped and well positioned in the town, being a 5 minute walk to the town centre and the harbour side, but quiet and private. The owners were very helpful - fed us from a family barbecue they had one evening - but not intrusive.
We hired a car but this is not essential as all amenities are within a reasonable walking distance. The apartments are positioned on a steep road but not too far up. We would gladly go back and will do so again.

We were very pleased with the spacious appartment and the Elounda location. We were tràveling by rental car and booked the same day we arrived. Car park could be better, but ok!
The owner checked in to ensure we were comfortable.

We were extremely pleased with not only the apartment, but the kind friendly hospitality from the owners. We have booked to go again because we were so relaxed and comfortable as the apartment was spacious, clean and the view was amazing.

Room Tip: Higher floor have marvelous view however even the lower apartments were beautiful.

Having stayed in Elounda on package holidays several times before, we decided to put together our own package and came across Markakis Apts. What a stroke of luck. We booked late and were given the last apartment available. A two bedroom apartment at the same price as a one bed. Apartment was spacious, modern and spotless. Best of all was the family who own the apartments, Dimitri, Rena and their two sons Michael and Lefteris. They are a wonderful family and treated us as friends from the start. Apartments are a short stroll to the Tavernas on the seafront and five minute walk into the central square where the locals and their children gather in the evenings. Definitely going back next year, for a four week stay this time.

The apartments are owned by a friendly and hospitable family who are ready to help any time.

The apartments are modern and spacious with well equipped kitchenette. Apartments are clean and well serviced. All apartments have big balcony (like terrace) with table to have meals or coffee break there facing the sea. The view to Elounda bay is exciting. The beds are big and comfortable. It is very quiet at the apartment
The location of the apartment is within 5 min walk to Elounda center, bus station, restaurants and shops.
The beaches are 5-10 walk away from the apartments

We had very comfortable stay in Elounda and will definitely come back next year.

I just wanted to say that having stayed in Elounda many many times I thought these apartments would be noisy as they are only one block away from the main road into the village however how wrong was I.. We had a ground floor 1 bedroom apartment I thought the bed was too hard but after a couple of nights that was it , it was so quiet that slept every morning till 9.30 or even later (I needed sleep!)... even at night when we sat on the patio we were never disturbed by noise. The owners are a super friendly without being obtrusive, genuine and generous.
The apartments are well serviced and we look forward to visiting them again very soon.
