“50th Birthday Celebration Holiday”

person found this review helpful

6 friends and I have just teturned from a week's stay at the Villa Panorama celebrating my 50th birthday. What an excellent accomodation - pure luxury. Our every need was catered for and nothing was too much trouble for the owners.any queries we had were very quickly sorted . Towels are provided for the sunbeds too. We were also wonderfully looked after by Maria who came in to clean every day, she also gave me some beautiful flowers and baked a cake as part of my celebrations - what more could you want. The Villa is just as seen on the website with lovely views and plenty of areas to sit in to enjoy them . We were not far from Elounda harbour - near enough for some of the girls to walk in while the rest of us took a taxi - 7 euros, we also visited the Island of Spinalonga which is highly recomended . The vilage of Plaka where you get the boat from to go acroos to the Island is also beautiful - small with a handful of very tasteful shops and a few tavernas, everyone there was so friendly. Thank you so much for a wondeful and very relaxing stay in Villa Panorama - we were all delighted with our choice :)

Liked best: Peaceful location and the very high standard off the accomaodation - beautifully decorated andwell built
Liked least: Possibly the road outside - cars often went by quite fast and in the dark walking home from a nearby taverna was a little worrying

“Amazing Villa”

Beautiful and spacious villa. Enjoyed our stay here. The owner Michalis is so helpful. He answered all my queries very promptly when booking the villa and welcomed us on arrival. Maria, who cleaned the villa daily was a delight to meet. As we were a large family all of the bedrooms were used, they were all lovely and the rest of the living areas were comfortable and spacious. The views are amazing. Would definitely recommend this villa. Definitely book the al-a-carte breakfast, it was wonderful and worth every penny. The only one negative is, the double bedroom in the apartment did not have any air conditioning, which the couple who had this room found uncomfortable during the hot nights.

“Like a good hotel ( but without any guests)”

Villa panorama was everything we were hoping for for an end of summer holiday. Unlike other villas we have stayed in there was a daily cleaning service so it was like staying in a hotel but with the advantage of no other guests, a great pool to ourselves and great staff. Alex who managed the villa for the owners was really helpfull for recommendations for dinner out, the beaches to go to, shops, bakers, etc. He was available and always helpful.
The villa has great facillities for indoor and outdoor cooking and was in easy reach of elounda village for nights out and to pop in for supplies when needed.
We would definetly book again if we come back to crete.

This villa was an excellent choice for our family holiday of 6 adults and 5 children. Our famiky cone from UK and Australia. It was a perfect location and so large, our view was magnificent too. A holiday in beautiful Elounda Crete can only be described as paradise. Everything abut our stay was beyond all our expectations. Thank you Michaeli and thank you Eleni our house keeper. She made our stay so relaxing and we all got much needed time to chill out!

“Beautiful villa with gorgeous view”

Arrived late at night to be welcomed by the owner who had waited for us to arrive to show us around the villa and ensure we knew where everything was. He had made sure we had enough food for a few days, filled the fridge and bowls on the table with fruit and plenty of water, A lovely welcome. The villa was great, we only used 3 double bedrooms all with en-suite toilet and shower, the two at the back with lovely views, the third at the front a little darker but still well decorated and comfortable. All were kept to a high standard of finish and spotlessly clean. The upper living area lived up to all the pictures with beautiful views and a high standard of quality furniture. The kitchen had everything you may possibly need and more. A great balcony for eating alfresco connecting to the living area was a lovely place to watch the sun come up, but also next to the pool. The front garden had a barbecue and Cretan oven with a lovely sheltered area for an evening meal.
The property is located on the main road into Elounda but it never seems noisy and is a good 20 minute walk to the center with all the cafe's, restaurant and bars located there.

Huge TV set and comfortable living room.
Superb hospitality, while Michalis (the owner) and Alex (the agent) making sure everything is OK and Michalis' wife even baked us a delicious cake :)
