Just as last year, the stay was lovely.
The bar staff were friendly, Mike and Maria are always more than happy to help. Hercules at night is always a joy. Steve is a friendly guy, a bit sarcastic, but that's part of his charm. Larriane and Carolynn are so helpful, friendly and just lovely. Nothing is too much for them, ever.
The staff made this holiday so much better.

Got home last week after another wonderful holiday at Manos and counting down to next May for our 7th return to these apartments. The location is perfect and the welcome you get from everyone involved with the Manos is great and they are genuinely pleased to see you which is another reason why they get so many repeat visitors throughout the year.
As always the rooms are kept very clean by Larraine & Carolynn sometimes helped by Steve on very busy changeover days and he does a sterling job of looking after the pool and grounds. Nothing is too much trouble if you need anything,just ask Larraine or Carolynn who are always happy to oblige whenever possible.
Mikhalis and Nectaria work very hard at the pool bar during the day and the food that you get here is excellent value and always very tasty and at night the bar is run very efficiently by Iraklis(Hercules) who loves to chat to customers(his English is excellent) he provides very good service at the same time.
We mustn't forget to mention Diana who does the weekly quiz which is great fun,she gives a lot of her time compiling different sets of questions for the whole year so please go to Quiz night.Her husband Gary is on hand to help too and they clearly enjoy it themselves.
Once again,it was wonderful to be back,roll on next year

Have just returned from a fabulous and YES I mean fabulous 2 weeks holiday, Larraine & Carolynne just go that extra mile, to make everyone's holiday enjoyable, helpful, cheerful, and always time for a chat, keeping the apartments spotless bed linen and towels changed on a very very regular basis, (thank you both )
The pool area is kept spotless thanks to Steve, checking and cleaning on a regular basis, ( thank you Steve )
Pool bar in the day time, fabulous snacks cooked by Maria were delicious and a very good choice of menu, and served by a very cheerful mike, ( thank you both )
Bar in the evening you always got a smile from Hercules, he knows everyone's name, and makes time to chat to, ( thank you Hercules )
Elounda it's self, you couldn't wish for better many choices of restaurants with excellent views and food, only a 2 minute walk away,
The group of people we had at the apartments were all friendly and spoke as you walked past, but never intrusive, you had a choice of your privacy, or joining in for a chat and a laugh, Ray & Maureen, Alen & Dawn, Janet & Ian, Neil & Carol, thank you for your lovely company,
Quiz night was a good ice breaker and a good laugh, thank you Diana & Gary
Over all view of these apartment and complex, people say you get what you pay for, NOT with these you don't, you get FAR more than you pay for, just a big big thank you to everyone in the manos you made our holiday complete,
There are no negatives, you only find negatives if you set out to look for them, Please if you haven't tried theses apartment and are thinking of a holiday in elounda, then believe me you will not be disappointed

Having booked a last minute bargain break during May 2014 half term with 2 children, we didn't have huge hopes for Manos. However, we can honestly say it was the best holiday we have had in years. Yes the apartments are basic and simply furnished (the shower is tiny!), but they were clean and the linens changed frequently. The pool and areas surrounding were immaculately maintained, never a shortage of sunbeds or umbrellas and the pool clean and checked many times throughout the day.
Elounda centre is about a 2 minute walk with so many lovely restaurants and bars. Unspoiled with lots of traditional tavernas serving beautiful seafood and local cuisine, Elounda is a delight.
The negatives....and these are very small...the beach directly opposite the apartments is man made, quite pebbly and at times exposed to lots of winds, but it is shallow and good for paddling with small children (wearing Crocs). Our apartment (no.10) didn't have a great view and was one of the closer ones to the bar so on the odd night we could hear some music and laughter, but the pay off was a 30 second trip every time the kids wanted something from the apartment.
All in all a very pleasant surprise and we will definitely plan a return trip.

We've just come back from a week in Elounda and stayed at Manos apartments. The staff are very friendly and welcoming, the rooms are clean and well equipped with kettle, toaster AND hair dryer (which if you've ever stayed SC in Greece you'll know is unusual!)
The apartments are right across the road from a small beach or a 5 min walk will take you to the main beach (cost of 2 sunbeds and an umbrella €7 for the day - you could even go off and return without repaying!) and also to the main part of the village where there are plenty of bars and tavernas. Fabulous place, great pool but the staff make it even better!

Once again Lorraine and Carolyn looked after us brilliantly, linen changes every other day and a smile and a chat when you meet them. Fantastic girls, keep it up. The best innovation for the apartments this year - hairdryers! Yes, no need to carry one in the luggage - more space for the essentials - t shirts,shorts and suncream .... and of course a good book.

Room Tip: We like the garden apartments at the rear of the property as it is quieter, but the noise from the b...
