“Excellent apartments”
Reviewed October 14, 2011

Excellent apartments. Lall and Karen were so welcoming and ran a very good bar and snack bar. Very clean and good food. They make it worthwhile staying in the apartments and without them it would be so different. Our apartment was spacious and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

After a fantastic holiday at these appartments last year, we returned for a further week in Elounda. Lal and Karin where the perfect hosts whilst this year they have been joined by Eri, who does the cooking (and she is good at it to!). The rooms are basic and clean on arrival, but we felt a little let down by the cleaner, who seemed to be a bit slapdash. (Insufficient sheets for our party, mid week sheet change was short on sheets, bins were not emptied regularly) Very minor aggravations, put right as soon as they were mentioned. Dont let the standards slip Costas! I must make mention of the Thomas Cook Rep, Craig. He was outstanding. Always on time and willing to do just about anything to enhance our holiday.

We walked all around the bay especially to go to the pub quiz at The Hiona (we like the odd quiz on holiday and this is the only one we found!)

The owners were really friendly without being overfacing - just seemed genuine! The drinks were really good value, the decor is lovely - especially the twinkly fairy lights and the view is right onto the sea. Enjoyed our night there and everything was very well taken care of so I imagine the apartments are too. We prefer to stay at the other end of Elounda, but will make the trip back to the Hiona bar

Where do I start. We didn't stay at Hiona but wish I had Karen and Lal were the perfect hosts nothing was too much trouble. The snacks were always beautifully presented and well cooked and his cocktails were to die for although the wife and daughter liked them a little too much. If and when I come back I will definately stay at the Hiona.

Basic but very clean, spacious self catering apartments. A real highlight is the Hiona Bar run by Karen and Lal - superb hosts, great hospitality - the bar is in a really lovely setting overlooking the sea, with nice decor, plants etc and is and well looked after. Good home cooked bar food and snacks available too - go Greek or a have a taste of home. They have a 'library' of books you can dip into, plus games such as chess, backgamon and scrabble if you want a lazy play day by the pool, or in the shade. I was there sometimes with family, sometimes on my own - always felt very comfortable and welcome. Check out the pub quiz on Wednesday evenings too - a popular event and a great laugh. Highly recommended, but book early - apparently the apartments go quickly!

We found this bar when we did one of the walks and thought we'd stop for a beer. The owners were really friendly and we felt very welcome. We stayed for a couple then went back on the Wednesday for the quiz. Joined in with another couple and had a really good time. If you were there we won best team name with Four Mustgetbeers! Anyway we went back on our final night, even though we were staying at the opposite end of Elounda we found the bar to be very friendly. I think they are called Lel and Karen, but if we came back to Elounda which I am sure we would we would stay here.
