“Great Holiday Carl & Alison”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2014

We have just returned from a 14 day stay at the olive Grove apartments, this was our first visit to Crete (Elounda) the Olive grove apartments are the best facilities that we have ever stayed in when visiting the Greek islands. The hospitality from Julia, Dimitri, Manos, and Becks was wonderful. The rooms were serviced on a regular basis by Chris who works tirelessly to keep the place spotless. The location is such that you have all the local Tavernas/Bars on your doorstep.
We would highly recommend this location to anyone thinking of a Holiday in Greece.

We have just returned from a 12-day stay in Elounda with family and have nothing but praise for Olive Grove. Excellent facilities including a crystal clear, clean pool which is maintained to the highest standard. The premises are kept immaculate and the hosting is top notch. We were made to feel so welcome and received excellent recommendations for the best local tavernas, bars and sights to see. Very much looking forward to returning to see Julia, Dimitri, Mano and Hayley soon (not forgetting Jimi, Roco and Molly too)!

I visited with my partner and our 2 year old boy in early June and from the moment we arrived we felt at home the staff are excellent Julia and Dimitri the perfect hosts with Manos nothing is to much trouble always willing to help you faultless.

Then you have Becky the bartender again always serving you with a smile on her face and fun to go with it keep up the good work. Chris the oddjob do everything man again nothing to much trouble always again walking around smile on his face.

The 2 dogs Rocco and Molly my little boy loved them and would call there names out as he wanted to see them.

The apartments are excellent please remember this is Crete so please dont expect 5 star decor they are very clean and have everything you could wish for to help you enjoy the holiday.

The pool area is wonderful plenty of sunbeds 2 pools one kids and one adults and kids same depth throughout lovely to enjoy the sunny days.

The bar area is next to the pool what makes this experience is everybody talks to each other and many a drink and a laugh was had at the bar.

The quiz and BBQ night on a Wednesday is a must great fun also everynight a meze dish is served between 7-9pm with a drink lovely touch.

Location is second to none right in the town but compared were it is situated also very quiet easy walk to lovely restaurants the Lotus Eaters is a must wonderful food and Daniel from of house is excellent and can tell a great story.

If you have not been to Olive Grove then you are missing out the owners and the staff location makes it unforgetable.

Prime location in a hilly town but located literally half a minute walk from sea front. Close to shops and restaurants and harbour. No hills to climb. Family run apartments friendly and keen to help with anything. My daughter got married whilst we were in Elounda which was our main reason for the visit. The owners were happy to let my daughter stay with us the night before the wedding and provided us width extra bedding, towels etc with no extra charge. They were also happy for us to bring family members back with us to sit in the pool area. All the staff were helpful and keen to make our stay enjoyable. I would definitely recommend anyone to book these apartments and my cousin is already considering returning to the resort but staying at the olive grove instead of the hotel she did stay at. I would definitely return if they could accommodate us.

Room Tip: No fitness centre but not required.
