Stayed hear for my 50th birthday with my 70 year old mother and 80 year old friend. We had number 23 1st apartment passed pool.one bedroom with queen bed and 2single beds in the kitchen area. That was fine however the bedroom does not have a window so got very hot and had to sleep with the door open all night which did not give any privacy. Also the only wardrobes and drawers were in the bedroom which was akward when my friend and mother were in and out of the room every 5 minutes. The apartment was self catering however there was no kettle, no toaster and no microwave, limited utilities so cooking even basic breakfast was a struggle! I can live with these issues but my main gripe was the hospitality of the proprietor Anna. She didn't introduce herself on our arrival and everything seamed too much trouble. I know many of the reviews are good all I can say is our faces obviously didn't fit. Elounda was stunning and I fell in love with the place. We ate out every night and didn't have one bad meal. In fact the only meal I could complain about was my birthday breakfast of beans on toast at Tasmania. The thick white bread was hard and unbuttered and the beans luke warm. On the last day i ordered taksiki and was brought just that, no bread or anything to dip in it, when I asked Anna if it came with anything she said "you never asked". This was true however I naturally assumed when ordering a dip it would come with something to actually dip in it, besides we were given complimentary breads in all the restaurants we had been in all week. Despite Anna knowing it was my 50th there was no special fuss made unlike the many fantastic restaurants that bent over backwards with cake and complimentary drinks to make my birthday special and memorable. The pool was clean but small with one side very shallow so was difficult to swim in as you could feel the floor before you reached the end. All in all the apartments were a good base and did the job at a reasonable price. We had a fabulous time in Elounda and will certainly be going back but not to tasmania. Be warned the hill is more like a mountain, I was glad of the exercise but my mum and friend had to have a taxi every night which some refused to go up the hill so make sure if you need a taxi they will take you to the top before you book.
