“Great Holiday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

These apartments are spacious comfortable and clean. The kitchen equipent is basic but if you need anything it is provided straight away. They are right on the sea front. Just cross the road and you are on the beach, also on the edge of town so not too noisey at night but close enough to all the restaurants of which there are many. The pool is 1.5 mtrs each end so perhaps not suited to small children but good for a swim. The staff are friendly and efficient. All together an excellant choice. Several supermarkets close by. Look out for The Oloundi and the Kanali restaurants on the causeway, great food and Ellie's kitchen near the apartments for a good lunch. We went with Thompsons who just dumped us there in the dark at 2.30 in the morning without telling us that we just find the flat and let ourselves in. That was not the fault of the apartments. I would go there again.

We were only there for a week from the 11th Octoter but it was lovely. The staff are so friendly and helpful, I commented that I had forgot to bring a hairdryer one day and by the afternoon when we got back being out and about there was one in the room free of charge. The apartment was clean, roomy and confortable, and we were lucky enough to be right at the front so close to the pool, which is kept in pristine condition, Steve the poolman takes his job very seriously and was there every night and morning keeping it clean. There is a little beach straight across the road which you can use rather than the main one which is about 5 to 10 minutes walk, if that, on the way to the town. The people of Elounda themselves are helpful and friendly and there is defintely enough tavernas and restaurants to choose from to eat and have a drink. This is the ideal place to go to to chill and relax and I now know why some people go back time and time again. we met some lovley people there too and certainly are looking forward to going back.

This a great self-catering place to stay to recharge batteries, meet nice people, have a nice meals, etc.
We booked appartment 14 for a week, from 14/10, with Thomson and did not regret our choice of venue.
The Appartment was squiky cleaned on arrival. We were fully made aware about bathroom hygiene by our rep on the way from the airport.
No need to check-in and went to our appartment, open the suitcase to get our swimsuits and straight to the pool. The key was on the door.
The pool area and swimming pool are fully cleaned daily. The bar prices are cheap: 2euros for a Beer. WiFi is also available from the pool area but not from the appartment, which is the slight downside. Staff are really welcoming and make you feel at home away from home.
The location of the appartment is no more than 10 minutes slow walk from the centre of Elounda so no difficulty to walk back with the shopping bags.
The municipal beach is litterally accross the road.
In all, a great stay over for couple and family. Hence the reason as to why people come back year after year.
Thanks to all the Staff for the great stay last week at Manos!!! See you soon.

Just got back from the Manos on Crete . It was more than expected. Clean , bright and in an excellent location. The pool area was well maintained along with the apartments and bar area. The staff were helpful and friendly.

The beach is straight across the road , and with the shops just a few hundred metres away what else could you want.

We stayed here for a week in October 2012. Manos is in a great location, right by the town beach and within 5 minutes walk of the harbour. There were four of us, sharing a 2 bedroom apartment which had a lovely view right over the beach (apartment 2). The staff were very helpful and friendly. Everyone we met were repeat visitors, there was one couple who had stayed there 10 times. We will definitely be coming back!

Room Tip: Apartment 2 has a great view but it can be a bit noisy late at night

Manos is a great value accommodation in the idyllic Elounda - I wanted to stay in one of those expensive spa all inclusive hotels up the road but am glad I chose to save more than a £1000 by booking here - we have a two bedroom apartment very clean and very spacious - a big balcony and a large enough bathroom with shower - there is no tv in room or hair dryer but am surviving adequately without - free wifi in the hotel means can access Internet easily - there is a pool bar serving snacks til 5pm and drinks until the last person goes to bed - we walk down the ramp from the pool bar cross a road and there is a quaint little beach - 2 minutes walk into Elounda harbour and village with lots of tavernas bars and shops - the food in town is lovely - last night we had our most expensive meal st the ferryman - sea bream 23 euro filleted at the table was beautiful with potatoes and vegetables - fish is expensive here but fresh from the sea that day and eating on the side of the water under the moonlight is very nice. There is a happy train in Elounda that can take you into the mountains or to plaka. Plaka is 5 Km from our hotel and is a tiny fishing village close to spinalonga island - beautiful. Our hotel bar run by Hercules at night shows football on tv - quiz Friday night Greek nights Saturday - it's all good and excellent value for money.

Just returned from 10 days at Manos. It was everything we hoped for and more. Apartments are kept spotless by Larraine and Caroline and nothing was too much trouble. Pool and bar area also faultless and never a problem getting a sun-bed.Elounda and the bay are so pretty and the local tavernas and bars so welcoming - we didn,t have a bad experience anywhere. The tavernas to the LEFT of the apartment entrance definitely worth visiting, particularly Despinas with its wonderful views over the bay, good food and typical Greek welcome.

Room Tip: We stayed in apartment No. 28, which is the last apartment and at the back. Big balcony overlooking...
