“Fab hotel we would definitely recommend.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2013

This is a really great hotel, we stayed in an apartment for 3 adults (our party included 2 adults and 2 children) it was spacious and had a Fab view over the bay. Just a walk over the road to the main beach and very close to some excellent restaurants.

Corali is a family run business and they cannot do enough for you!!! They made a real fuss of the children (they even left 2 small teddy's on their beds!! which our children loved!!!)

all in all a great hotel, and one which I would whole heartedly recommend.

Just returned a few weeks ago from a one week stay at the Corali where my friend also got married. It was my first time in Elounda but i was amazed by its charm.
I have stayed in Greece many times but can safely say the Corali Studios are by far the nicest and the staff and owners the most pleasant and helpful i have come across. They not only made us very welcome but they made my best friends wedding day perfect in every way.
The pool is lovely the rooms are clean and spacious. I will be going back .

Just returned again from the Corali Studios. There is little to add from my previous reviews other than to say this place & the family are the best!
We love the people & the place so much we have booked 3 weeks next year!
Elounda is also very special with such charm.
The best thing is, go see for yourself!

Room Tip: Many rooms have a fabulous sea view.

These apartments are run by friendly people although, probably because of our late arrival, we were not told where the aircon control was, nor what the wifi code was, and we had to work out how to turn on the water / hot water ourselves - and it meant that we had two cold showers before we had it sussed!
The mini apartment was large and well-equipped, although it was a bit dark / dowdy in style and there was a cigarette burn on the bedside table, which added to the impression of being past its best in some ways. The beds were board-like, which might be to some people's taste, but they didn't suit my old bones...
Although the apartments are out of Elounda and are across the road from the sea (which is a good view) there was some noise from passing traffic - the occasional mosquito-like whine of motorbikes and the thrum of juddering trucks made it a bit hard to go to sleep.
The breakfast was fine - fresh breads and jam, tea and coffee in the pleasant pool area behind the hotel. I enjoyed swimming in the pool - very relaxing after a day's sight-seeing.

We stayed in Elounda for a long weekend, it was off season so not much open, too cold for the sea, no water in the pool, no pool bar,no people! It was still the most beautiful place I have been to, It helped that we stayed at the Corali which by far are the best apartments we have ever stayed in (so far) in Elounda. The position could not be better and the view was just stunning, the apartments are so clean and so well equipped, for Greece anyway, the family are lovely, Maria speaks good english and she is lovely, told us all about her family when they lived in London. the dogs are lovely too Chelsea and Do Da, so funny. We were only there for 5 days but enjoyed every second. Not long to wait till we go again in May, where shall we stay this time??.

Elounda is considered a beautiful destination for your holiday, but the accommodation here makes your holiday unforgettable!! Beautiful and clean apartments, tasty snacks and cold drinks from the snack bar, the pool fabulous!! But, the most important is the feeling the owners give you, that you stay at a friends' house!! the location?? near shops, restaurants , harbour and the beach across the road. All you need for a perfect accommodation!
