We have just returned from a lovely week at the Elounda Gulf Villas. We stayed in the Milatos villa which comprised of one master bedroom and ensuite and two large double rooms and shared bathroom. plus a comfortable living room and kitchen. The Master room had lovely views across the sea, as did the living room, but the two other bedrooms have no view at all and one was very dark. Outside we had a small private pool and good sized area with table and chairs and several sunbeds. The views were lovely ahead and to the right but the view to the left was half-built villas and pylons. Not really a problem if you position your sun beds accordingly, but other villas may have a better view. We were on half board so always had breakfast (good choice of cooked or continental and fresh fruit or fruit salad) in the lovely restaurant by the pool with great views, and had either lunch or dinner there too. We were happy with the menu choice, though would have liked to have seen a vegetable! Seafood spaghetti was delicious as was the Orange Cake. All the staff were very helpful and extremely friendly. Nothing was too much trouble. We had a great time and would definitely recommend it, though wish they provided a free or cheap shuttle service to the town, as we spent a lot on taxis. There are some good restaurants in Elounda but the best place we found to eat was in Plaka and was called Palaria. Majority of diners were Greek and the food and service was fantastic. Delicious selection of starters to share (prawns in tomato and chilii and deep fried courgettes were our favourites) followed by the best salt-baked seabass we have ever eaten. Evening ended with musicians coming in and most of restaurant singing! All very Greek and great fun!
