Just returned from these wonderful family run apartments. We cannot praise Julia, Dimitriti, Manos, Andreas and Mikey enough. They go out of their way to make you feel welcome, nothing was ever too much trouble in fact we felt like we were leaving good friends behind. The quiz/ BBQ is a must. A big thank you to Suzy who is one of the nicest reps you could wish to meet.
We met some wonderful people including Mick and Lisa (our quiz partners and current reigning champs! Hayley , who always made sure Mollie and Rocco had their walks and the Romford four.
The apartments are spacious and very well maintained with hair drier and iron.
Julia also makes a small meze every night which we loved .
You cannot find a better place than these apartments for a relaxing and enjoyable holiday.
Thank You Olive Grove and we will see you again soon.

So if you want a really relaxing holiday with great accomodation, book here!!

Room Tip: All rooms to a high standard

We have recently returned from our Holiday in Elounda, after staying at The Olivegrove Apartments, this was our fifth stay in five years, theres something about it that just keeps making you want to return. The apartments are modern,spacious, kept spotlessly clean, and with everything that you require in them, even down to washing up liquid and T- towels!.
Theres a lovely pool, with a childrens section attached, plenty of loungers and umbrellas, also a garden area at the rear.
But its the family who own and run the apartments that need a special mention, Julia, Dimitri, Manos and Andreas, with help from Hayley,( Molly and Rocco) will do everything possible to make your stay enjoyable.
Julia works so hard serving great meals during the day, and her Mezes with drinks every evening, are excellent, there is a BBQ and quiz once a week, in which the whole family are involved, its delicious, and great fun.
Manos and Andreas keep everything running smoothly behind the bar, and ensure that everyone enjoys themselves.
The apartments are a couple of minutes walk to the lovely harbour, with a bakery, butcher, and supermarkets near by.
Elounda itself is a lovely place, with plenty of wonderful restaurants, and bars to enjoy a drink and people watch! there are boat trips leaving the harbour for Spinalonga,( well worth a visit)
every day, and you can catch the local bus to Plaka and Ag Nic, if you fancy a change.
If your looking for British Bars, Discos or Fish and chips! this is NOT the place for you, but if want lots of restaurants with Great Greek food, wonderful hospitality and friendly locals, then Elounda ticks all the boxes.
We have already booked for a return to The Olive Grove and Elounda next year, it cant come soon enough.
Thank you to all the family, for a great holiday.

Just a few line to say, that the Olive Grove Appartments are great place to visit and stay at, friendly atomsphere, family run appartments, a big thanks to Julia, Andreas, Manos, Hayley and Dimitri and forgetting Molly and Rocco,
If you are looking for a relaxing holiday, Elounda, and Olive Grove is the place to visit, and they have a sun and warm weather.
You have to sample, Julia breakfasts...yum, free mezes..yum, and BBQ/Quiz Night.. yum and Great Fun ( particularly if you win...!!!) 11/10, This our 4th visit to Olive Grove.
There is also lots friendly places to visit to eat in Elounda, to name a few: Cyprannes, Meze House, Vacchus, Megaro, Zobra, All in One, Mams and at the top of the town The Tryst and forgetting the cake shop Angelas besided the Olive Grove, yummy yummy, you need to try the croissants

Just returned last week after spending 2 great weeks in this great family owned apartments. There is nothing we did not enjoy about it, The oikonomakis Family simply make every day a great day, and there is nothing they would not do for you, we have been 4 times and they are like an extended family now. The rooms are all lovely and clean, and well looked after during your stay. The weekly BBQ and quiz is great fun, and is such a good laugh, helps you get to know everyone. The apartments are close to anything you may need, shops, tavernas,banks,and Beach,buses and taxis.
Many Thanks to Julia,Demetris,Manos and Andreas, Halyley and suzy for rmaking our holiday so great, and a special thank you to Molly and rocco, for being such lovely wee cute dogs.

Room Tip: Every room is a good room, the Family will make your stay relaxing in every way they can..

The Anglo Greek family that own and manage the Olive Grove apartment’s are very modest about their awards from Trip Advisor, that amount to a certificate of Excellence and a 4.5 star rating. They prefer to leave it to their “friends” who get the opportunity to enjoy their hospitality and mingle with their extended family, who return time and time again, if they can get in that is? Don’t leave it too long before applying for “membership” with this family, but if the only accommodation available is room 24… do us a favour and check with us first!

Tony & Lynda (room 24)

All Love to Dimitri, Julia, Mano and Andreas … Molly & Rocco ..Hayley and Suzy
