We arrived after taxi transfer at 03.45hr and were swiftly taken in the hotel bus to our apartment (No.61) on the upper levels of the complex,presented with a bag of fruit and rolls and packed off to bed in a clean, bright apartment. We woke at around 7.45hrs to bright sunshine and a breath taking view of mountains and sea. So started a wonderful relaxing 2 weeks holiday. The hotel complex is built on a hill side and accessed by a steep road, this is not a hotel for people who can't or wont willing climb the stairs and always take the lift in life.
We stayed on a half board basis, breakfast being continental buffet style, so dont exspect the full English, evening meal again buffet in a traditional Greek/Cretan style and very good.
If you are staying self catering the nearest supermarket is on the main road leading into Elounda Village, the onsight shop stocks a few basics, so we recommend B&B or half board. You also need to drink bottled water as the tap water is potable but full of minerals and can upset some people.
Crete is a wonderful island to explore and Elounda is a jewel with local people who welcome you into their community. Sit back enjoy the view with a cool drink , swim in the clean warm sea, explore the island and enjoy your holiday. If you exspect UK facilities go to Blackpool. Enjoy the Elounda Residence Hotel be polite if you have a problem and the staff will respond likewise.
