“in a word... AWESOME!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

I recently went to Elounda with my Girlfriend and her family. We tried to book at the Olive Grove but unfortunately it was in high demand and we were unable to (mental note... BOOK IN ADVANCE!) instead we stayed at a near by hotel apartments and were a bit coy at coming down to meet her family each day at OGA as we were not staying there and felt a bit cheeky! this was soon not the case as we were welcomed by this great family run place of relaxation and leisure! We were more than happy with the reception we got from the staff each day we visited the OGA and never felt like we were over staying our welcome. the pool was great! and always the right temperature. They supplied brilliant bar snacks and a more than ample amount of mezza in the early evening. we all attended the Quiz night which also had a BBQ which was cooked to perfection!
the pool bar has a large selection of alcohol and Micky (Blue Eyes) was always happy to try making new cocktails with me (ASK FOR A SUGER RUSH... my invention!!).

overall we all loved the holiday their which is impressive as we were of all ages ranging from 1 - 60. you felt the family went out their way to do anything they could to make your stay an experience to remember. I can guarantee we WILL be going back next year and if you want a great holiday as a couple or with a family you should see for your self!

Thanks for a holiday to remember!

Adam

Our second stay at OGA, and will definitely be back. Location is ideal being in centre of Elounda, but still relative quiet. Lovely warm welcome by all the team at OGA, spent some lovely evenings chatting at bar with all family and friends old and new. Can recommend the weekly BBQ and quiz, and Julia's bagettes are great to take to airport for snack on way home, or if you fancy a picnic.

Just returned and want to go back! This was our third time at the Olive Grove Apartments and it will definitely not be our last. The apartments are beautifully maintained as is the pool area and garden. The family who own the apartments are very hospitable, they make you feel very welcome and nothing is too much trouble. We had fun at the weekly bbq and we enjoyed Manos's boat trip. The bar and snack bar is excellent and Julia provides mezzes every evening between 7pm and 9pm. The location of the apartments are perfect as the beach, harbour and town are less than a 100 yards away from the entrance to the apartments. We have had a super holiday, it was very relaxing and we have met some lovely people, I have already been checking out flights for next year.

My husband, myself and our 14 month old son stayed last month with a large group of our family. From arrival to departure we couldn't have asked for more- the apartments were clean and well equipped, the bar very reasonable and well stocked with meze & sangria ;-), the snacks lovely and every effort made to help us with the baby which was much appreciated. Everything needed for a relaxing break!!

What makes the place is the hospitality offered by Dimitri, Julia and their boys Manos (sp?), Andreas and Mickey.....who (according to my husband ) makes the best cocktails on the island.

The location is perfect and Elunda is lovely, we loved the choice of pool or beach (only a few minutes away) and there is endless choice for food/drinks around the town. Over the whole trip I don't thing anyone had a bad meal.

We would love to return when we have the chance and hope it won't be too long - until they we will be recommending the olive grove to those we know. Basically a perfect place for anyone who wants to enjoy their holiday! Thank you! X

This is our third time at The Olive Grove and it just gets better and better each time. Apartments are centrally located, excellent pool area kept very clean, the bar/snack bar is excellent value with very reasonably priced food and drinks. The apartments are clean & well maintained.The BBQ is a must do. Julia, Demetrius, Manos and Mickey make you feel so welcome that you never want to go home. Can't wait to return.

We didn't actually stay here, so i cant comment on the rooms, from what we could see they looked lovely and chris was constantly cleaning and changing towels and sheets. anyway,we used the pool and bar/restaurant nearly everyday.
We were really very impressed with the place, it's lovely and has the cleanest poolside loos I have ever seen!
We will definitely be booking olive grove for our next trip to Elounda!

recently returned from Olive grove.Despite being situated just off the main street, it isnt noisy at all, and proves ton be a very convenient base from which to explore elounda.
Nice pool and bar area which are very well kept.Numerous sunbeds available both around the pool and on a grassed area.there is an organised bbq quiz night once a week which although we didnt attend as we had gone there just to chill out , did seem well attended by the mainly repeat visitors.The apartments are spacious and on the whole well maintained, nice touches are hairdryers in the rooms.I feel the bedroooms could be improved by adding bedside/reading lights as at the moment the bedroom is lit purely by an extremely bright central ceiling light.some people may feel the balcony is a little small but was certainly big enough for 2 of yy to sit with a drink or breakfast.
kitchen is adequately equipped with crockery and cutlery a nice touch to find some water already chilled in the fridge
its nice to have an enclosed shower and the spacious bathroom was a nice surprise, but let down slightly as it had no ventilation and at times smelt a bit,and also by the fact the cleaner didnt once change the handtowel at the side of the basin.The large bathtowels are however very welcome!
Although our apartment overlooked the pool bar there wasnt too much noise at night,we were able to sit on our balcony and feel as if we were still in the bar due to its proximity but this didnt really affect privacy, as there voile curtains at the windoow protecting your privacy.At times the bar was like a social club & had the same clique of guests each night.
On returning safe deposit key,to be told oh you just wanted a quiet holiday then...implying you havent joined our 'club' isnt received too well especially as some people just want to relax and chill and are able to entertain themselves
