“Manos”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2014

This was our second stay at the Manos apartments. We had such a good time here last year we booked virtually straight away when we got home. Once again we had a fantastic time. The apartments are spotless, and serviced regularly. The manager Larraine ensures an excellent service and is well supported by Carolyn and Steve. The bar staff are great and produce excellent food with a really friendly service. We made great friends last year and nearly everyone booked again fort this year. We formed a synchronised swimming team and performed to 'let me go' by Gary Barlow! Sorry to fellow guests for monopolising the pool each day for 20 minutes. Elounda is beautiful and the tavernas are great. Just book it - you won't be disappointed.

We have just returned from another great holiday at the manos apartments in crete and i must say that this was the probably the best one yet. Larraine carolyn &steve worked really hard in making sure the apartments and pool were immaculate.nectaria and mikalis and the bar staff were superb and the food provided by the poolside bar was excellent! Once again it felt that we were back at our elounda home as soon as we arrived and met our extended elounda family!! A superb time was had by all, roll on next year!!!(DJ Duck)

Mano apartments were in a super location and were spacious and clean. The staff were very friendly and so too was Maria, the rep. The pool was clean and we didn't have any problems at all getting a sunbed round the pool at any time. The little beach opposite the hotel was delightful and so too was the supermarket 2 minutes away. A 5 minute stroll into Town was pleasant and worthwhile.
We stayed in apartment 2, probably the best for location and a sea view overlooking the bay.
Fully recommend if you like small, quiet places which are what Greece used to be like.

Room Tip: Upstairs, you get a good view. Room 2 overlooks the sea but is near the road, but we found this inte...

We have just returned from a fantastic week at the Manos Apartments, and cannot sing its praises more highly. We had a two bedroom apartment which was spacious, tastefully decorated, and clean with fabulous views of the sea. Breakfast and snacks from the bar were delicious and affordable. There is a great atmosphere around the pool and bar, which all the staff work hard to maintain. The Manos offers great value for money in a super resort. We'll definitely be going back!

We have just returned from a 2 week holiday and had Room 13. We must say that this was the best holiday we've had of all our holidays on Greek islands. We found the Manos the most welcoming, friendly, quiet, cleanest and best-located apartments to date.
Larraine who manages the rooms kindly put us in a 2-bedroomed apartment, which was far better than we envisaged and much appreciated - each bedroom had a balcony and a 3rd one off from the kitchen/entrance. Larraine is extremely friendly and always willing to help with any problems. Larraine, Carolynne and Steve work very hard during the day (starting very early) to maintain not only the rooms, but also the very nice gardens around the apartments. Everything for self catering is provided, including toilet rolls, and the sheets & towels are changed every few days. The only noise we heard at night was from crickets - which added to the atmosphere !! The pool water is continually tested to make sure it meets all standards. The bar area is very nice and a perfect position to sit and overlook the sea. Although we didn't eat at the bar, the food being served looked and smelt really nice. Just across from the Manos is a small sandy beach with sunbeds and umbrellas - which we used for convenience. The short walk by the sea round to the picturesque harbour is very nice, and the food in all the restaurants we tried was the best we've sampled - and good prices. Lots of places to walk to and see by boat and car. We will return and definitely stay again at the Manos.

Room Tip: Top floor rooms have better views. All rooms would have no problems with noise (if any) as the doors...

Please don't be put off coming here to these fabulous apartments by reviews of room 5. We have just returned from a weeks stay in room 5. Yes it's close to the bar but did we feel we had no privacy and was 'like living in a zoo'? No - we had breakfast and lunch on the balcony everyday. Did the noise from the bar keep us awake? No not once. The room itself was clean, comfortable, spacious and modern. The pool area was relaxing yet fun and friendly. The staff were amazing and Hercules makes the best cocktails I have ever had. Laraine the manager was just lovely and made us feel very welcome and Maria the rep was brilliant. We would definitely stay here again and even request room 5 as it suited us perfectly. All in all a fantastic holiday!

I hadn't been on a package holiday for years but good friends recommended Elounda and the Manos apartments. We were NOT disappointed!
I have been to Greece several times and I can honestly say that this apartment complex was the cleanest I've stayed in. The apartments were cleaned on a daily basis and the bed linen/towels changed every other day. The pool area was spotless even after the worst sandstorm I've ever experienced in Crete!
We never ate at the pool bar so can't comment on that but the drinks were reasonably priced.
The location is perfect. On the edge of the town so a little bit quieter than being in the centre but a very short stroll to the many restaurants/bars and the boat station serving Spinalonga. Ideal for a trip up the hill behind the apartments to the Hope restaurant.
We found the market that's held on Friday mornings a great place to stock up on fruit for breakfast.
At £280 per person for the accommodation, flights and transfers, this holiday was excellent value for money. OK, the transfer seems to go on forever and the flights were in the middle of the night; but who cares when you're paying this much (or should I say this little?!)!
We will definitely be back and wouldn't hesitate to recommend Manos to friends & family.
