My wife and I spent the first week of our honeymoon at the Elounda Carob Tree villa. From the outset, Nick the manager did everything possible to make the stay thoroughly enjoyable. He met us late in the evening due to a delayed flight and escorted us there before introducing the villa's features to us. What was wonderful was the little welcome pack including fruit, a bottle of wine and a starter pack of essentials like coffee, coffee filters, sugar, milk, olive oil, vinegar etc. It made settling in very easy for us.
The villas were decorated to a high standard with all the modern conveniences. The private pool was maintained daily and the maid cleaned the villa to a very high standard also daily. We stayed at another great villa on the second week of our honeymoon but there was nothing like the service provided to us at Elounda Carob Tree Valley.
Nick also gave us an excellent restaurant recommendation in nearby Elounda and also coordinated things for us when we wanted a massage at the sister hotel Elounda Blue Bay, which has a gym that can be used by carob tree villas residents.
Elounda is an easy 5 minute drive or half hour walk from the villas so dining in town every night was easy. I think the taxi back to the villas was around 7 euros.
We found that the villas were managed very well but with light touch, which was perfect for us. If we had to criticise anything it would be the extreme firmness of the beds but we found that everywhere we stayed in Crete so is a minor point really.
We would highly recommend the villas and will definitely stay there again when we return to Crete.
