We stay at the Olive Grove Apts and they can be booked direct as we do via their website

There are a couple of messages below that have taxi contact info

Manos apts are not too far out and neither are a couple of others whose names escape me at the moment, nr the harbour

We stay at Corali/Portabello and they can arrange for a taxi transfer for you. Its a great place, in a great position, really nice and highly recommended. We've been before, going back in September and will undoubtedly return again in future. We love it there!

We have booked to stay at Olive Grove Appts based on recommendations on Trip Advisor. They are near harbour if you look on Google maps by big church.

We are using First Choice this year, flying from Birmingham in October, coach transfer included in price. This seemed the best/cheapest option as there are four of us arriving at night.

We also looked at Alykes, but decided on Olive Grove as it was more central.

Really looking forward to visiting Crete for the first time.

Have fun planning your hols.

Nic :-)

try " http://www.holidaytaxis.com" I used them 2 years ago (booked a shuttle transfer with them but it turned out we were the only couple & they took us in a taxi. Will be using them again on 19 June total cost for return transfers by shuttle for the 2 of us is only £40.50

i would recommend the manos apartments. the rooms are great, as is the staff, across the road from a small beach and 5 mins walk into the centre of the village with lots of bars and restaurants en route. fab restaurant next to the happy train parking not sure wot its called but starts with p.

last year we got a taxi at the airport and it was 90 euro and too 40 mins to get to elounda. the taxi in elounda charges 85 euro to go back. lorraine who works in the manos well her husband owns the company and he was very prompt.

i think its last choice that run these apartments. we booked again last sept for this sept and got the last one bedroomed apartment, but i think july and august still have availability.

A visit to dimitris is a must. (across by the chuch on the main square) he's crazy and does the best giros pitta in elounda

You would love the Hiona Apartments, we are going back for third year in a row. The apartments are basic but lovely and the view is amazing. The sea is literally right across the road. The people who run these apartments are lovley . If you would like more information please message me.
