We spent a week at Elounda Heights and have to say that the setting is totally stunning. The grounds, pool and views of the bay and Spinalonga Island are beautiful.Our one-bedroom apartment was large and airy and had a lovely big balcony.The kitchen, however, we feel could have benefited from a microwave.The hill is, of course, a downside but you get used to it and I have had two knee ops but managed every time, never needing a taxi which you can get from the town square for 5 euros. We missed the famous meze night and because it was late in the season and very few guests there was no Sunday boat trip so we can't comment on these.We were looking forward to our meals there after all the positive comments but found a very limited menu which was expensive with small portions and certainly not the fresh ingredients we had hoped for.The tavernas in Elounda have much more extensive menus, equally well-cooked and much better value and we had some lovely meals there.
Vangelis and Anne work very hard to keep the complex so beautiful and they are very welcoming.Their dogs and cat are no bother at all and are very friendly and congratulations to Anne for all the hard work she does for her anim al charity.
There was anice little welcome pack on arrival for a much needed cuppa and the safe was free.So , all in all, a very nice week and highly recommended.
