Super holiday! 22nd May til 5th June 2014. We stayed in studio no.3 which is in close proximity to the bar, however, there was never any loud music or rowdy behaviour. Hercules ran the bar, he was a friendly and sociable man. The room was maintained well and all the staff were very accommodating, they would go above and beyond to ensure your stay was a pleasant one. Its our third holiday at these apartments and we will definitely be returning. Love to all the staff, see you again soon.

Just returned from our first two week stay at the Manos Apartments...and it certainly won't be the last! Offering excellent value for money, these clean, compact and efficiently-run apartments are just steps away from the beach and harbour. Pretty and unspoilt, Elounda offers a selection of restaurants and bars to suit all tastes and price-ranges.The real draw of this holiday, however, is the hospitality and genuine warmth shown by ALL staff members. Larraine, Steve and Carolynne keep the premises and pool spotless, and always find time for a chat in spite of being extremely busy. Their only concern is to ensure that everyone enjoys their stay. The restaurant and bar couldn't be more efficiently run, with excellent, freshly cooked, value for money, snacks during the day and cheeky cocktails and handy football tips!! from the one and only Iraklis ( Manos apartments answer to Tom Cruise!) by night.Impossible to find any negatives.

We booked this place because of the positive reviews, but this place is definitely overrated!!!!! such a disappointment!!!!! We get an apartment next to the bar I think this is the worst room You can ever get! (room number 5). We couldn't open windows/doors because we were so near to the bar! No privacy at all, everyone could look straight in to our room! UNACCEPTABLE!!!!!! apart from living in the bar there was really loud!!!! music and drunk people till late!!!!!!!!! The beds very uncomfortable, old, with some blood stains! disgusting and dirty place! The bed linen and towels were tired and showed signs of wear/tear (photos as a proof). The kitchenette very small, no chance you can cook something overe there... This place is not bacis, is very very very basic!
After we complained to our rep and manager of this place (LORRAINE) SHE BECOME VERY RUDE TO US... she has got no management skills at all. I don't know what she does overe there??!! She was so rude, she made such a big deal because we complained... I think people have right to do so, as a manager she should know how to talk to people but she hasn't got communication or diplomacy skills at all-no comment!!! She didn't even bother to answer hello after our complaint... That was so pathetic!!!!!!!! Bar staff not friendly at all. But what can I say- the example comes from the top..... if you want peace and quiet and clean place don't go there! This is my honest opinion, unfortunately we didnt't have nice time in Manos Apts, at least Elounda is such a beautiful place!

Wow! What a brilliant place this is; we'll surely be back again ...
Thanks to you all for the welcome: To Hercules, Lorraine,
Carolynn, Marie the rep, Steve so helpful, such great fun ...
You made us feel part of the 'family' so "Cheers, everyone!"
It was the perfect holiday; so many happy memories will last
Of azure skies and sparkling seas, our quad bike whizzing fast,
Eerie Spinalonga, warm sand trickling between our toes,
Cooling swims – then delicious suppers as moonlit evening glows;
The Hope Inn and its perfect views, giggles at Manos bartime drinks,
Spinalonga, Plaka, windmills, sunset skies all glimmering pink.
Unforgettable, relaxing, a very special place by Cretan shores.
A cocktail of sun and laughter – who could ask for anything more?

Room Tip: Room 8 was just a few steps up from the pool and very roomy.

Returned from Manos Apartments 12/06/14. I booked it partly after reading many reviews most of the reviews used the word " basic " I believe very basic should be used. There is no reception, anyone arriving after the bar is closed at night is expected to know there is a small notice board as you enter the site, remember its dark, on this board is a A4 list with your room number on it, but it does not tell you your key is in the door, and you are expected to go and find your own room, there is no one about to ask.The apartments have a good location right on the beach 10 mins from the main square.. The barman works vey hard to make your stay enjoyable. Everywhere is kept clean, Nice pool area

Room Tip: 18 very basic. Low numbers near the bar

Another great stay at Manos apartments. The welcome we received was fantastic, staff always make a point of making you totally comfortable. Mike and Nik (bar managers) are such genuine people, they couldn't do enough for us. Hercules had us in fits of laughter as usual and serves the best cocktails in Elounda.. Lorraine and Caroline keep the rooms as immaculate as ever, they went out of their way to help this year with a couple of personal problems (which was not within their remit) Steve looks after the pool & grounds and always has a smile on his face, nice helpful guy.. Will most certainly be returning next year!!

Room Tip: If you want total peace & quiet, be aware that rooms 1-6 are adjacent to the bar area.
