Reviewed July 16, 2013

Just come back after two weeks at the Manos and it really is hard to fault it. The bar, the pool and the apartments are all spotlessly clean and I would not hesitate to recommend it. The staff are all really friendly and very hard working and nothing is too much trouble. Its always a bit of a worry when arriving at a new place but no need for any concerns here.

Just returned back from Elounda where we stayed at Manos. Having stayed here last year, everything was just as perfect as it was before. Excellent accommodation and clearly well maintained by Larraine & Caroline who were always more than helpful & made us feel very welcome. All the guys working the bar on morning (Maria) , afternoon and evening were always friendly but special mention to Hercules who was a great host during his night shift at the bar.
All round, a superb base to stay in Elounda. Would definitely recommend Manos to anyone thinking of going to Elounda.

Room Tip: All rooms appear to be equally just as good.

Excellent location, apartments are clean and spacious. No toaster, but they are available if you just ask.

We stayed in room 7, overlooking the bar which meant we had wi-fi on the balcony, bonus! and a lovely view across the bay. With the doors closed any noise from the bar wasn't an issue. Though when we opened the doors in the morning the smell of cooked breakfast, from the bar, was too much and we gave in on a couple of occasions!!

The pool area is great, though it was winday some days and the beach across the road lovely too.

Elounda is a great place to chill and Manos a perfect 'base'

Stayed at the Manos Apartments, have to agree with the positive comments on the staff they are all very pleasant, willing to help and very friendly. The apartments are a stones throw away from a lovely safe beach and close to the bars and restaurants. We paid for the air conditioning (50 euros per week) and it was worth every penny :). There was no microwave or toaster in the apartment which could cause a problem for some but we chose to eat out with the choice and variety of restaurants. It is worth being aware that there is not a reception desk at the apartments and our rep gave us no information regarding this so when we arrived on a late night flight, we were left feeling a little lost and let down by the rep - Hercules the evening bar man was extra helpful and made us and the other party feel welcome and made sure we were ok. Elounda is a fantastic resort but the transfer time can make it feel a little out of the way and with hotel drop off and pick ups the trip does seem never ending. I would arrange separate transfers or car hire next time. All being said the apartments are excellent, the location beautiful and the people friendly. I would wholeheartedly recommend Elounda and the Manos apartments for anyone wanting to experience Crete.

We have just returned from Elounda, which was a great destination in itself, but the holiday was made great by the lovely Manos apartments. Our room was very clean, with a great shower and bath. Our towels and sheets were changed three times in the one week. The apartment was well serviced and kept beautifully clean. The staff were helpful and friendly. We could not have wished for a better location just across the road to the beach, and very close to the main little town with all its attractions.
We would recommend these apartments and if we visit Crete again will definitely be booking the same accommodation.

We have just returned from our second holiday at the Manos Apartments. Thanks again Larraine for the lovely apartment (number 1), it made our holiday extra special - the view was priceless. The apartments, pool and bar area are all spotless thanks to Larraine, Mike, Nektaria, Amina, Carolynne, Steve and Hercules. All the staff are exceptional and friendly making our holiday very relaxed. It was a joy to see the babies and young children. The apartments are in a perfect location across the road from the beach and only about five minutes walk to the harbour area with plenty of bars and tavernas nearby, although it's nice to go back to the apartments for a drink with Hercules. We usually like to try different tavernas each night when we are on holiday but both last year and this we ate at the Anemomylos every night, great food and the owners, Spiros and Maria are very friendly. Our holiday was perfect and we are looking forward to returning.
