We returned last week from the Lena. Our experience is as follows. Arrived late with no Rep. Shown to our room by the owner. He shoved the key in the door and walked off. We traveled as three adults and had one of the smallest rooms there was, as even commented on by one Lena family member. In the two weeks we were there our room was cleaned three times even after we were told it was done three times a week! So you can imagine the state our our towels...One day we put them on the floor on room cleaning day to return later and the cleaner had picked them up folded them and put them back on our beds, filthy. Now to the toilet paper bin. Only emptied every three days!!! Not to be too crude, that is bad enough but with ladies sanitary wear it was totally disgusting. My husband had to take the paper bin on one occasion to the wheelie bins down the road as the smell in the heat was foul. The bed sheets were not changed at all in the two weeks so they started off white and were indescribable by the end of the holiday. Now to the pool and bar area. Unless you want to sit around the bar all day handing over money you are ignored by the owner. We hired a car for 3 days and went out and about, when we returned on these 3 days we were blanked as we had spent nothing at the bar. The pool is very small and the usual applies. Get up at the crack of dawn to get a sunbed or people NOT staying in the Lena who are returning visitors (and popular with owner) will have their towels on the beds before sun up. Plus you now have the added bonus of the owners 1year old daughter screaming from dawn till dusk!! Also other child relatives and their friends converge on the pool which as mentioned is small, making a racket and making it impossible to have a swim. By the way the pool is not particularly clean. We had a few swims with various insects, leaves, plasters and beer mats!! Overall Elounda beautiful and worth a visit. We were told the Manos apts next door were much nicer.....wish i had know.
A little message to two lovely people we met..... Is Richard still in the Olive Grove with a serviette on his head?
Not room 5 unless you like Ants.
