“Delighted with our choice of apartment in Elounda”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2014

We did a lot of research in choosing Elounda as a resort and Markakis apartments and our expectations were exceeded on both counts. We booked directly with Michael - very straight forward , he offered us a choice of apartments and helped sort out a taxi transfer from the airport. The apartment was close to the centre , very well designed, the beds comfortable, the shower hot. Cooking facilities were reasonable - we were able to cook a few meals using tasty local ingredients that we ate out on the balcony. And what a balcony - huge , with views out over Spinalonga Peninsula with glorious sunrises for me to attempt to sketch. Linen and towels were changed and the bins emptied every couple of days and the family constantly checked everything was ok (eg fixing a faulty shower while we were out at dinner) The wifi signal was better than we have at home and it was great to be able to keep in contact with friends and family so easily as well as listen to R3 via iplayer. We loved it and are already planning coming back next year.

Room Tip: The higher up the better the view - we were in room 6 with a huge balcony and views of the sunrise.

Michael and his family couldn't have made us more welcome. They provided information about bus times, restaurants etc. there was water, French toast, butter, jam and milk when we arrived. The apartment was cleaned thoroughly twice a week with a change of shower towels. It was cold at night in April so take jumpers, warm night wear and slipper socks (the floor is cold). The wifi connection was very fast so could download films for a quiet night in. The safe and sandwich maker was great. It was easy to e-Mail Michael if we needed anything, he always replied promptly. The bus fare to the airport was €8 per person plus €3 to Aghios, taking approx 90 mins depending on connections. Hope to return again.

We have been to Elounda before but wanted somewhere different to stay than on our last visit. We chose Markakis Apartments on the recommendation of Tripadvisor and were not disappointed. The apartment was clean, suitably equipped and well positioned in the town, being a 5 minute walk to the town centre and the harbour side, but quiet and private. The owners were very helpful - fed us from a family barbecue they had one evening - but not intrusive.
We hired a car but this is not essential as all amenities are within a reasonable walking distance. The apartments are positioned on a steep road but not too far up. We would gladly go back and will do so again.

We were very pleased with the spacious appartment and the Elounda location. We were tràveling by rental car and booked the same day we arrived. Car park could be better, but ok!
The owner checked in to ensure we were comfortable.

We were extremely pleased with not only the apartment, but the kind friendly hospitality from the owners. We have booked to go again because we were so relaxed and comfortable as the apartment was spacious, clean and the view was amazing.

Room Tip: Higher floor have marvelous view however even the lower apartments were beautiful.
