“Perfect relaxation!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

Have just stayed at the Olive Grove Apartments in Elounda Crete. We arrived at 04.30hrs and wondered if we were going to be met at the apartments after we had been given a little map by the Thomson rep when onboard the coach. No one to meet us but easy enough to find our way to the ground floor apartment which was spotless! Well enough equipped to keep you happy! As previous guests have stated it is at the far end of Elounda but an easy enough walk to the shops and beach but relatively quiet too. The pool and snack bar area are spotless due to the owners Tender Loving Care ! Unfortunately we had to cut our holiday short due to illness in the family back at home......again Julia, Mano and Chris couldn't do enough to help us. Thankyou to everyone at the OGA......we will be back. Bernie & Richard xxx

Our first time to Crete and glad we picked Elounda and the Lovely Olive Grove.The apartments are very spacious with dining and sitting areas,well equiped kitchen with kettle, toaster and hobs that do get hot and an iron in one of the kitchen cupboards.The bedroom has plenty of wardrobe and drawer space with a patio door leading to a 2nd balcony.The bathroom was great enclosed shower luxury.Another balcony to relax on had chairs and table.The pool area is spotless and garden area is kept very neat,plenty of sunbeds on both.At the poolside bar meals and drinks are served both good value.Although the shops and bars are near,it is very quiet and peaceful,Elounda is a beautiful part of Crete.Julia,Dimitris,Manos,Andreas and Mickie are very friendly and always make time for a chat,and Chris who is around helping out.The barbeque quiz night was alot of fun and the food was delious.We met alot of nice people at the Olive Grove and who knows might meet again one day.Glad we met Haley and baby Dimitris had a wonderful holiday Thanks All x Doreen and Bob.

Room Tip: All rooms good but for views high floor

Just returned from Olive Grove Apts. First time we have done self catering and this was perfect. There is everything you need including an iron. Breakfast and lunch can be bought at the poolside bar at a very reasonable price. You are always given a warm welcome from Julia, Dimitris and Manos. Weekly barbecue and quiz night is something we normally dont get involved with but this was very laid back and the food was very good. Elounda is a beautiful village with plenty of tavernas at reasonable prices. Try Ane Momylos (seemingly it means windmill) opposite the municipal beach. The food is top quality and plentiful. Take a walk to Plaka - it is about 5 klms but worth the walk or you can take the happy train and then go over to Spinalonga (the once leper colony) again a must.

Room Tip: Room 23 had views of the pool on one side and the mountains and countryside on the other. If you are...

Just returned from another stay at The Olive Grove. We have been going here since the apartments were built about 8 years ago. They are in a fantastic location and are kept spotlessly clean. As always we were made very welcome by Julia, Dimitris, Manos and Haley who cannot do enough for their guests.

Its one of those places where people return to again and again, so you are always bumping into old friends made on previous visits to the Olive Grove

We are looking forward to returning in September and meeting the new addition to the Oikonomakis family.

Wishing you well Hayley x

Just returned after a fantastic week of warm weather and relaxation. From the welcome on arrival to the goodbyes at the end of the week, the staff were informative, open and friendly. We were lucky enough to to be in Elounda for Greek Orthodox Easter celebrations and joined with the local people in late night parades and watching fireworks. As is Greek tradition, the Olive Grove family welcomed us to share their barbecued spit roasted lamb on Easter Sunday.
Our first floor apartment had lovely balcony views of the hills around Elounda and was serviced regularly.
All in all a near perfect break.

We've just come back after another lovely holiday at the Olive Grove Apartments. It's one of those rare places that has it all - fantastic location, great accommodation and above all, a very, very warm welcome from Julia, Dimitri and all the family. We've been there many times now and can't recommend it more highly. Can't wait to go back!

Stayed here for 10 days with the family and it was absolutely brilliant! The staff were excellent and very friendly, the location is perfect. A short walk to the beach, resturants and bars however there was no noise from the bars on the evening. There was also a lovely little local market a couple of minuets walk from apartments. The pool was lovely and the little bar outside was a great extra!!! Stay here!!!!!!!
